dc.description.abstractThis study investigates the problem of restoration failure using research data from primary and secondary sources. The failure of dental composites due to secondary caries is very common, so the creation of a restorative material that will serve as a multifactorial solution will be a significant advancement. An enhanced composite material with antibacterial properties and remineralization properties could be the solution to restoration failure. This composite contains dimethylaminododecyl methacrylate (DMADDM) which has antibacterial properties and the remineralizing effect of amorphous calcium phosphate (NACP). Studies have shown that the combination of NACP and DMADDM is a promising new technology that could increase the longevity of dental restorations and provides several potential benefits for both clinicians and patients. Along with its inhibitory properties, the new composite material is also aesthetically pleasing and could potentially be used in all areas and surfaces of the clinical dentition. Composite failure is a prevalent issue and having a longer lasting dental material would certainly be in the patient’s best interest. Our project intends to take a step forward by not only recognizing a problem (primary and secondary caries) and seeking a better solution (enhanced composite fillings), but to plan for the future by incorporating a preventive strategy where dental hygienists could inform and advocate for their patients.en
