Light breakfast, lunch, parking, all hands-on materials are provided for in-person attendees.
There are many materials available to us and it can be difficult to decide when to select specific materials for various clinical situations. This is a hands-on course that combines aesthetic composite restorations and functional restorations using glass ionomer-based restorative materials.
The morning will be dedicated to composite restorations: Getting composites right in a predictable manner is hard work. Fortunately, new materials have emerged to help produce beautiful outcomes without having to maintain an enormous arsenal of inventory. In this hands-on course, participants practice a new and innovative composite material that utilizes new technology for optimal shade matching using only one composite for most indications. When composite layering is necessary, participants learn tips and practice predictable techniques for beautiful, predictable layered composite restorations.
The afternoon will be dedicated to glass ionomer: Glass ionomers have come a long way over the years; beginning a few decades ago as a short-term pediatric restoration to now having a wide array of indications, including luting agents, sealants, bases and final restorations, just to name a few. This hands-on workshop describes the mechanism of action of glass ionomers and the many ways we can use them in practice. Attendees place glass ionomer-based sealants and restorations, including using the open and closed sandwich techniques. Glass ionomers provide many options for a variety of clinical situations and this course describes them all!
- Learn the latest in shade matching technology
- Learn tips and tricks for creating lifelike anterior composite restorations
- Learn the clinical indications for glass ionomer luting agents, sealants, direct restoratives and glass hybrid restoratives
- Demonstrate proper handling of glass ionomers in various clinical situations
