Simplify Restorative Procedures Using Single Shade Direct Composites

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to: 
  • Explain anatomic placement, adhesion techniques, contour, finishing, and polishing for anterior and posterior direct composite restorations.
  • Practice simplified shade matching using a single shade composite system.
  • Identify techniques to create proper interproximal contours for Class II direct composites utilizing sectional matrix systems.
  • Incorporate techniques to help prevent post operative sensitivity when placing direct composite restorations.

Abstract

Placing direct composite restorations that precisely match existing tooth color is a clinical challenge that can be difficult for even the most experienced clinician.  The clinical reality is that many composites do not precisely match traditional shade guides, let alone each other!  This can be extremely frustrating for the clinician, especially for a patient that is “picky” about aesthetic matching.  Having a universal, single-shade composite system that can take the “guesswork” and frustration out of shade selection and match the majority of clinical situations in anterior and posterior teeth, has been on many dentist’s “wish list” for a long time.  This webinar will cover placement and finishing techniques using a unique single shade composite system that will elevate the quality of your composite restorations tomorrow!

Simplifying the Bonding and Cement Protocol

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to: 
  • Identify how to use one bond and adhesive system to secure all restoration including zirconia, Dilithium silicate, and composite resins
  • Explain how to dispense cement products to maintain asepsis while providing advanced adhesion
  • Incorporate the protocol for cementing zirconia crowns using one system

Abstract

This course will simplify the the of bonds and cements to understand how one product can do it all. In the past I had a drawer full of various cements and bonding agents to do different restorations. It was always a problem to remember how one product was needed for this procedure while another was needed for another restoration. Dr MacLean will show how he uses a one bond / one cement system to do it all in a aseptic way that uses a significantly less amount of wasted cement. You might not believe this is true but come and check it out! This is a revolution in bonding!

Biologic Materials for 21st Century Dentistry

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Define which resin based materials are hydrophilic and biologically reactive. In addition, the participant will learn why the use of hydrophobic material for therapeutic purposes is not recommended.
  • List the necessary steps to maintain pulpal vitality (long term) and what animal studies have demonstrated. In addition, the participant will appreciate the interaction between the pulp and medicaments
  • Describe why previously promoted techniques for pulpal protection often utilized materials that were non-compatible, creating weak interfaces allowing for restoration failure and/or micro-leakage
  • Recognize the role that clinicians may play in biomaterials research and the new role of advanced filler particles

Abstract

Recent developments in resin technology have propelled the introduction of hydrophilic resins for the evolution of therapeutic dental products. These resins allow for the addition of biologically kind active components in order to positively influence pulpal health. One such innovative light cured resin based tricalcium/dicalcium silicate product is indicated for pulp protection and a recently developed dual cured resin based tri/dicalcium silicate material for pulpal therapy. Besides being very pulpally kind by preserving cell vitality, these new materials encourage dentin bridge formation, preserve the dentin hybrid layer and resorptive processes are hindered. In addition, these materials provide a more durable base upon which to place the restoration. For direct restorative treatment, biointeractive restorative materials have been significantly accepted by Pediatric Dental clinicians. For example, a dual cure, bulk fill, biologically active ion releasing restorative material is used by many pediatric dentists. Materials used for cementation of zirconium crowns in pediatric dentistry should also be ion releasing, that is, biointeractive. Filler materials have evolved and recent materials are not only ion reactive, but also may be anti-bacterial, reducing the risk of recurrent caries.

Latest Update on Cements Bonding and Universal Composites

Categories:

Author(s):

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the current materials and capabilities of composites
  • Describe what composite materials are available and the limitations of each.
  • Recognize the current generation of bonding agents and cements.

Abstract

In today’s busy general practice, the most used materials are composites for direct restorations. The evolution of that category of materials is amazing – today’s composites are light years ahead of the materials that we thought were great 20 years ago. The changes in the translucency and in the ability to match the existing tooth color are major advancements. This course is designed for the busy dentist who wants to stay current with the available materials and concepts of tooth-colored restorations.
 
We will discuss what matters most in composite selection, depending upon location and occlusal load placed on the restoration. Materials and procedures for placement of the composites that will eliminate post-operative sensitivity will be addressed. The current state of resin bonding agents and the protocol for utilizing these materials in your day-to-day practice, not only for composite placement but for all of your bonded restorations will be covered.
