Central ILAGD Presents: Composite Dentistry by Drs. Susan McMahon & Howard Glazer

November 16, 2018 @ 8:00 am - November 17, 2018 @ 5:00 pm


Composite Dentistry

by Dr. Susan McMahon & Dr. Howard Glazer


Day 1 (AM) will provide a look at cosmetic dental issues that are of particular concern to teenage and young adult patients. Treatment options and step by step treatment procedures will be discussed. Whitening and microabrasion, direct composite bonding, finessing of post – smiles & laser soft tissue sculpting will be presented. A step by step process through the emergency evaluation, preparation, record taking, provisionalization and cosmetic restoration of the fractured anterior tooth related to emergencies will also be presented. Day 1 (PM) will provide solutions for better restorations, better workflow and better well-being for dentists and teams using today’s technology, materials, techniques and equipment.

Day 2 will integrate didactic material and hands -on experience with anterior and posterior composites in addition to “no flow flowables.” Participants will be offered an opportunity to explore the technique of layering and blending composite shades to insure an aesthetic result using the latest state -of-the-art composite resins. Suggestions on the use and securing of a matrix, as well as finishing and polishing will also be discussed and demonstrated. Intra-occlusal splinting will be included using resin impregnated quartz fibers. Participants will have a first-hand opportunity to try these techniques on models.
