Course Synopsis:

This is a two part course with the Lecture (Morning Session) covering esthetic materials and techniques.
Techniques 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 limited attendance, Hands-on (Afternoon Session) will give the participant the opportunity to work with composite materials. There will be two groups, one 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.
Lecture Course Objectives:
You will learn in Lecture:

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

Registered Participants for the Hands-on (Afternoon Session) will have a chance to place composite materials in anterior or posterior restorations.
