The 3 W's of Direct Restorative Dentistry

WHAT to use,  WHEN to use it  and WHY!   

(available with products hands on interactive workshop or both)


There are more options available then ever before on how to treat and directly restore a tooth.

This course will show you why the “one size fits all approach” to direct restorative dentistry MAY NOT be the best approach. All restorative dentistry starts with an accurate diagnosis. Choosing the correct restorative materials (enamel and dentin replacements) for the patients’ type and state of disease may lead to better outcomes and longer lasting dentistry.

In this course you will learn the following:

1. Using the latest technologies to accurately diagnose decay before “the explorer stick”.

2. Minimally invasive to maximum intervention dentistry require selecting different restorative materials.  Which material or materials for which clinical scenario?  There may be more than one right answer!

3. Where do “bioactive” or “smart” restorative materials fit in? Why the bonding agent, base and restorative material should be selected based on the patient needs or clinical environment.

4. Bulk Filling vs. Layering technique for composite placement - Maybe the science does not “back up” the beliefs.

5. Achieving good and predictable Class II contacts.  We should not be placing composite with “amalgam armamentarium”.
