Clinical solutions to optimize posterior composite restorations
Nowadays, direct posterior composite fillings are the "bread & butter restorations" of the general dentist. However, the step-by-step procedure of the incremental build-up technique can be very time consuming in the dental practice. Particularly with larger restorations, as well as with children or elderly patients, this can be a significant challenge for the dental practitioner. Recently, new restorative systems for bulk-fill application have been introduced. These materials possibly have the potential to save significant chairside time when creating posterior restorations. The question is, however, whether dentists need to compromise in terms of depth of cure shrinkage stress, marginal quality or esthetic outcome. This live webinar will introduce new techniques to restore posterior cavities faster and more efficiently.
In this webinar, you will learn more about the following themes:
- Latest adhesive bonding techniques
- Layering vs. bulk filling techniques
- Complete and fast polymerization: importance for the longevity of the restoration
CE Credits: 1 Hour
The webinar will be available until October 25, 2023.
