Event Details

Fundamental to obtaining excellent clinical outcomes with posterior composites, is the ability to properly adhere these materials into the tooth. This workshop will thoroughly review the dentine bonding agents presently on the market, with all of their respective advantages and possible pitfalls. The course will then address the main causes of post- operative sensitivity with posterior composites, and present techniques that can be predictably employed by the clinician to prevent it from occurring. This will include a discussion on cavity design and restorative material placement as well as the role of self-etching dentine bonding systems, glass ionomers and flowable resins. During the hands-on exercises, participants will then have the opportunity to practice composite placement in typodont teeth using the materials and techniques discussed.

Workshop Objectives

  • How does the cavity position & design affect prognosis? Is there an advantage in switching to self-etching dentine bonding systems?

  • Which composites are best suited to posterior applications?

  • What is the role of Bulk Fill Composites? – are they the future?

  • Getting tight contacts – matrix systems for posterior restorations
