Time: 8 - 11 AM
Room: ,
Type: Participation    Handouts: Speaker bringing
Dentist Fee: $425.00  Other Fee: $425.00

Experience a unique hands-on approach to modern resin dentistry. Direct
composites are under appreciated 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
Room: ,
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $95.00  Other Fee: $65.00

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

Time: 8:30 - 11:30 AM
Room: ,
Type: Registered    Handouts: No
Dentist Fee: $95.00  Other Fee: $65.00

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.
