Sponsor Ege University
Start date June 2003
End date December 2014
Trial size 200 participants
Trial identifier NCT02343796, 14-9.1/4


The purpose of this study is to determine whether fibre-reinforced composite resin restorations are effective for single tooth replacement, elimination of tooth mobility following periodontal treatment and as an orthodontic retainer.

Study Design

Intervention model single group assignment
Primary purpose treatment
Masking no masking
Fibreglass reinforced composite restoration-everStick as a medical device intervention will be applied on each subject by using either direct or indirect method. everStick (GC, Belgium) will be used as a fibre reinforcement material.
fibreglass reinforced composite restoration-everstick
For those subjects with space availability on interocclusal distance, composite resin restorations with fibreglass reinforcement will be applied without any tooth preparation by using adhesive techniques.
GC, Belgium

time frame: 3 years

Eligibility Criteria

All participants from 18 years up to 65 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - referring patients for missing tooth replacement or fixation of tooth mobility following periodontal treatment or maintenance of teeth in corrected positions following orthodontic treatment Exclusion Criteria: - insufficient interocclusal distance - poor oral hygiene

Description Adhesive dentistry is based on preventive dental approach. In presence of such advanced and minimally invasive techniques, destructive treatment methods should not be preferred for clinical situations, such as missing single tooth cases, tooth mobility following periodontal treatment and prevention of relapse after orthodontic treatments. Glass fibre is a reinforcement material, and increases the flexibility of the material together which it has been used. Fibre-reinforced applications by using direct or indirect techniques. This material and method is easily applicable, biocompatible, repairable and economical on a high extent.
