Better, Faster, Stronger Composites

 by Dr. Rose Holdren


Day 1 of the course focuses on current trends, controversies and innovations treatment planning tips designed to assist in choosing and successfully implementing the latest lab-fabricated all-ceramic dental materials and treatment protocols. A brief update on developments in direct composite resin materials and long-term provisional materials and the latest trends in composite resin injection-molded techniques and composite resin options for complex cases will be discussed.
Day 2 will provide a unique hands-on approach to modern resin dentistry. Participants will perform injection molding of warmed flowable and paste composites create ideal margins, rounded emergence profiles, rock solid contacts and mirror-smooth restorations. Realistic soft tissue dentoforms, Bioclear Matrix System, and 3M Filtek resins will be utilized.
