Clinical Evaluations

Company Logo
Filtek Z250 Universal Restorative 9-Year Clinical Performance
Description
3M ESPE Filtek Z250 Universal Restorative is a direct universal composite for anterior and posterior use. The composite is filled 60% by volume with 0.01μm to 3.5μm particles.

Clinical Evaluation Protocol
  • 565 Filtek Z250 restorations in 269 patients were evaluated during the recall period.
  • Restorations ranged in age from one year to nine years.
  • All classes of restorations were evaluated. Nearly half of the recalled restorations involved posterior interproximal surfaces.
  • Restorations were evaluated on a 1-5 rating scale: 1 = poor, 2 = fair, 3 = good, 4 = very good, 5 = excellent.

Resistance to Fracture
94% of restorations recalled showed no chips or fractures. 4% had minor chips that required no treatment and 2% exhibited chipping that required refinishing or recontouring. No fractured restorations were observed during this recall period.

Esthetics
Esthetics were rated very good to excellent in 98% of restorations. Filtek Z250 remains smooth and the color is stable. The material blends well with the surrounding tooth structure. The appearance of these restorations has rated consistently high for the past nine years.

Resistance to Marginal Discoloration
The majority, 88%, of Filtek Z250 restorations had no marginal discoloration noted at recall. While staining at the margins would be expected to increase over time, the ratings in this category have remained stable.

Wear Resistance
Visual evaluation of wear of Filtek Z250 earned ratings of excellent for 93% of restorations. This composite is performing well not only in the anterior region, but also under occlusal load in posterior Class I and Class II situations.

Summary
Filtek Z250 is a universal composite that has shown consistently high ratings for resistance to fracture, esthetics, resistance to marginal discoloration and wear resistance over nine years. It is an excellent choice for durable, esthetic restorations in anterior and posterior teeth.

Consultants’ Comments
  • “If I had to choose only one composite to have in my office, Filtek Z250 would be it.”
  • “Looks great at nine years.”
  • “Surface of the composite remains smooth.”
  • “This composite can produce margins that are invisible.”
