The Perfect Posterior Composites for You and Your Patients

Event Details

Direct techniques for minimising sensitivity and obtaining perfect contacts

This course will address the main causes of postoperative 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 hands-on exercises, participants will have the opportunity to practice composite placement in typodont teeth using the materials and techniques discussed.
