Thursday Courses
Th106 - Better, Faster, Prettier Composites
Time: 8 - 11 AM
Type: Participation    Handouts: Speaker bringing

Experience a unique hands-on approach to modern resin dentistry. Direct composites are underappreciated in today’s world of implants and computer-assisted ceramics. Yet composite can be the least invasive, most natural and most wonderfully esthetic of all restorations. Participants will perform injection molding to create ideal margins, rounded emergence profiles and mirror-smooth restorations in critical challenging situations: deep anterior caries and black triangles. Participants will learn to use heated composite with special step-down tips.

 

Note: Participants are encouraged to bring loupes to the course.

Friday Courses
Fr271 - Treating Black Triangles and Diastemas With Direct Composite
Time: 1:30 - 4:30 PM
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes

One third of adults suffer from black triangles. Discover this exciting approach to beautiful, strong and stain-resistant “composite over-molding” that should be part of your modern dental practice. Along with diastemas and post-orthodontic spacing, there is a significant need for long-term composite additions to otherwise healthy teeth. Learn the use of the new clear anatomic and diastema closure matrices (Bioclear Matrix), infinity-edge margins and mirror-smooth simplified polishing techniques. Step-by-step, predictable and minimally invasive alternatives to many esthetic and functional dilemmas with balanced use of flowable and paste composites will be discussed in detail.

 

Saturday Courses
Sa286 - Modern Conservative Dentistry
Time: 8:30 - 11:30 AM
Type: Registered    Handouts: No

Traditional sealants show failure rates as high as 92 percent. Posterior composites remain a struggle, with failure rates up to 50 percent higher than amalgam. Post-operative sensitivity remains a problem, and too many pulps are dying. Cracked teeth are the No. 3 cause of tooth loss today. All is not lost! Minimally invasive dentistry is hot and here to stay. Designed for the entire dental team, this course will present new findings in materials along with a wealth of tricks, tools, and techniques to update your skills.
