Diagnosis/Treatment Planning for Success
Comparative studies show amalgam outperforms adhesively-placed composites in longevity. However, composite remains highly sought-after by patients due to esthetic, environmental and health concerns. This evidenced based presentation will review treatment planning risk factors for placing adhesive based composites and explore self-adhesive options available to the clinicians when unfavorable clinical situations exist. Step-by-step protocols for preparation, placement and finishing techniques to achieve precise margins, consistent contacts and reduce post-op sensitivity will be demonstrated with video for optimal and compromised clinical conditions.
