Update in Restorative Dentistry

Event Details

Getting the basics right

In this one day, hands-on program, Michael will provide an update on what is new in posterior composites (including the indications and use of bulk placement techniques), Impression Materials, All-Ceramic Restorations, Provisional Materials and Cements. Specifically, he will address the common problems of post-operative sensitivity in posterior composites and how newer materials can assist to prevent this. Michael will demonstrate a technique for fabrication of quality provisional in those last few moments of the prep appointment, and also how to ensure you get your impressions right, every time. There will also be content on bonding and cementation systems and case examples of the different techniques for cementing various all-ceramic restorations.

This full day program will alternate between lectures and hands-on exercises, ensuring all attendees are well versed in these new materials and techniques by the end of the course.
