Course Synopsis

This is a two part course with the morning lecture covering esthetic materials and techniques. These continue to change rapidly and confusion about all the new materials is common among many general practice dentists who do not have time or desire to keep up with the research. Which dentin bonding agent is best and how do you use them for the best result? Where do glass ionomers fit into the practice? Which composite should you use and where do you use it?

The afternoon limited attendance, hands-on session will give the participant the opportunity to work with composite materials. There will be two groups, on working with Anterior Composite and another working with Posterior Composite. The material covered will show how these materials should be used to get the optimum results for your patients?

Course Objectives

You will Learn in Lecture:

  1. How to get the best results from bonding systems.
  2. How to differentiate which composite material might be appropriate for use
  3. Some of the problems with curing lights
  4. How glassionomer and flowable materials can be used for better clinical results.

You will have a chance to place composite materials in anterior or posterior restorations during the afternoon session for those registered.
