PDF: Resin Bite Turbos


Resin bite turbos, sometimes referred to as build-ups, are created by bonding composite material to the palatal or occlusal surfaces of teeth.



Their primary purpose is to prevent heavy contact of the upper teeth with lower fixed appliances in patients with deep overbites, but they can also be beneficial in cases involving crossbites or hyperfunctional masticatory muscles.

Although the application of resin turbos is a well-known technique, there are differences of opinion about where to place them and what materials to use. 

This review is intended to improve the clinician’s understanding of the rationale for such choices. The utilization of functional turbos will also be discussed.
