Abstract: The increase in consumer demand for restorative and aesthetic dental treatment has resulted in a gradual upsurge of dental professionals relying on flowable composites (FCs) to meet consumer needs. All main manufacturers in the worldwide dental market offer flowable products together with the packable type. Scientific and technological improvements of FCs properties and handling characteristics have not only seen FCs grow in popularity but resulted in the development of different generations and types of dental FCs suitable for wide range of clinical applications.

Clinical relevance: It is useful for the dental practitioner to be aware of the classifications, composition and overview of FCs.
