Objectives: The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the effect of ultrasonic packing techniques using on the adaptation of resin composite materials. Methods: Two electronic databases were searched without limitations through May2015. The terms Bulk packing, Sonic vibration, Dental marginal adaptation, Marginal assessment, Dental leakage, Void, and Composite resins were used. Screening through titles and abstracts was initially performed, and then articles that fulfilled the inclusion criteria were selected for a full-text assessment. Findings: The database search strategy retrieved fifty nine potentially eligible studies. No duplicated studies were found. Titles and abstracts were screened and studies that fulfilled the inclusion criteria were selected for a full-text assessment. Finally fifteen laboratory studies met the inclusion criteria and reference list for them was obtained. Applications/Improvements: Placement technique did not influence the adaptation of resin composite restorations. While the type of resin composite material influenced the extent of marginal adaptation. There is an interaction between the composition of the resin composite material and the application technique. The adaptation of new Sonic Fill system is promising and needs further investigations concerning its clinical longevity.
