Quick Reference

A restorative philosophy which advocated the extension of the margins of a cavity preparation into areas of the tooth considered unlikely to become carious because of their accessibility to cleaning. It was a concept proposed by G. V. Black in 1891 and applied specifically to the materials available at the time. This philosophy has been heavily influenced by the advent of new restorative materials and techniques.
