Don’t just ‘Watch it’ – ‘Protect it’

The course will provide clinical information on material selection options and placement techniques for protecting vulnerable tooth surfaces including:

  • Erupting molars

Increase your scope of practice whilst delivering better oral health outcomes for your patient. Through this presentation you will learn how to protect erupting molars, exposed root surfaces and enamel around orthodontic brackets using Fuji and MI varnish. These products and techniques when adopted have the potential to create new business and encourage recall appointments.

Fibre Reinforced Composite: resin splints, retainers & bridges – : 1pm – 4pm

This course will provide clinical information and a ‘hands-on’ experience with resin impregnated fibre reinforced materials combined with a range of aesthetic and high strength composite resins.

Participants will be able to experience using the fibres.

Topics include:

  • Fibre reinforced composites – material types and indications for use
  • Case selection, treatment options and clinical techniques
  • Using aesthetic composites and layering anterior fibre reinforced bridges
  • Hands on construction techniques for a Perio splint and an anterior bridge only
