Abstract: This study investigated the reasons for placement, replacement and the age of failed composite resin restorations. A total of 742 patients ranging in age from 18 to 50 years were examined; 312 were males while 430 were females. The total number of restorations placed were 958. Primary caries was the most common reason for the placement of new composite resin restorations (63%). The main reasons for replaced resin composite restorations were secondary caries (44%), and discoloration (28%). The median longevity of the replaced resin composite restorations was about 3 years (46%). Among the replaced restorations, 21% were between 3 - 7 years old.
