Webinar Date & Time:
Sunday, Sept. 26th, 2021, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Pacific Time (US & Canada)
Duration: 7 Hours
Universal bonding agents simplify the bonding process and allow the dentist to use their preferred etching method. Composites with optimized nano-filler particles and non-bis-GMA resins decrease wear, polymerization shrinkage stress and optimize optical qualities. Predictable class II restorations require specific skills and techniques to achieve reliable success. This course is an excellent way to update your skills using the latest restorative materials.
Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will understand:
1) Effective "Universal" bonding agents.
2) Innovative new composite materials.
3) Conservative preparation techniques
4) Treating our aging population.
5) Bioactive restorative materials.

Less is More - Incorporating Minimally Invasive and Bioactive Materials into Your Practice The movement in healthcare has been towards less invasive methods. Modern dentistry is following this trend with the development of new preventative techniques and improved direct restorative materials. With the changing demographics of our population it is important to use age appropriate restorative materials. Xerostomia is a problem with patients who take ever-increasing medications, so remineralizing bioactive materials are useful. Glass Ionomer restorative materials can serve as a therapeutic restorative material, reducing post-operative sensitivity and potential recurrent decay.
