“Back to School” What’s new and what’s not in Restorative Dentistry
September 1 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The breadth of materials and techniques available for today’s practitioner can be overwhelming and confusing. It can be challenging to understand what is best for you and your practice, with each new development being promoted as the best and offering an improvement to what you currently own or do. In this course, we will review key aspects of the restorative practice, ranging from bonding agents and composites to glass ionomers and cements. We will also review the use of silver diamine fluoride and the evidence surrounding partial caries removal.
- Available bonding agents, their science, and application recommendations
- Glass ionomer and composite indications and placement techniques
- Cements and bonding protocols for ceramics
- Direct and indirect pulp capping indications and materials
- Clinical use of silver diamine fluoride
- Partial caries removal recommendations
