Lecture | 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | One and a Half (1.5) CE Hours    Category B


Course Description

The scientific evidence indicates amalgam restorations are outperforming posterior composites at an alarming rate. Operator error, material selection and patient compliance will determine the long-term favorable outcome of direct composite resin restorations. This course will provide a current scientific update of which adhesive systems and direct esthetic materials to utilize for improving results. Evidenced-based step-by-step protocols for preparation, placement and finishing techniques to achieve precise margins, consistent contacts and eliminate post-operative sensitivity will be demonstrated with video provided by Dental Microscope HD Video.

Learning Objectives 

  • Describe the optimal adhesives and materials for specific cavity preparations including compromised clinical situations.
  • Utilize simplified and innovative protocols for preparation, placement and finishing
  • Achieve precise margins, consistent contacts and eliminate post-operative sensitivity
  • Utilize CaMBRA and other risk assessment tools to help patients understand their role in extending the survival of their restorations
  • Understand how to use effective communicative skills to avoid unnecessary litigation
