“Adhesive Dentistry — Maximizing the Placement of Anterior and Posterior Composites”

Friday, March 17, 2017

8 hrs of AGD Esthetic Lecture Credit — IDBE pending final approval

Th e use of composite resin material as a direct restorative for anterior and posterior restorations has dramatically increased in the marketplace. With self-etching technology emerging as a viable alternative to traditional techniques and the development of new technology to assist clinicians with bulk-fi ll techniques, it is easy to get confused and fall behind. What materials will you advocate for use in your practice? What has the literature been revealing on materials in current use? Should practitioners change their current techniques? What preparation design will you utilize?

Th is program will attempt to make sense of all of the products and techniques available in today’s market place and will focus on materials and their applications as well as a brief review of some of the literature. Emphasis will be placed on new developments in the composite area as well as outline what developments to watch for in the coming years.

During this program practitioners will understand:
• Self-etching principles and how they are applied to composite resins.
• How to reproduce natural tooth characteristics using composite resin.
• How to control post-op sensitivity.
• The mechanisms of bonding systems and learn to control sensitivity.
• The differences between the various composites available to clinicians.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1480738393872{margin-top: 40px !important;padding-top: 20px !important;}”]


“New Materials in Indirect Restorative Dentistry”

Th is fast paced, informative session will introduce the participants to several new materials in the arena of indirect restorative dentistry. Tips and techniques for these materials will be discussed during this presentation. Pros and cons of each material will be discussed. Th is course will cover the latest development in all porcelains, cements, impression materials and CAD/CAM technology and elucidate their influences on the modern practice of dentistry.

During this program practitioners will:
• Gain knowledge of modern ceramic materials and understand limitations and strengths of each type of material.
• Develop a better understanding of the indications and contraindications of each material.
• Improve their understanding of the plethora of modern cements and which clinical situations are indicated for their use.
• Navigate the technological advances in CAD/CAM Dentistry and figure out which systems may be most appropriate for their practices.
• Learn predictable techniques designed to capture flawless impressions the first time they are attempted.[/vc_column_text][ewf-divider separator=”single-line”][vc_column_text]


Saturday & Sunday
March 18 & 19, 2017
If you attend the entire 3 day weekend, you will receive 24 hrs AGD Esthetic Participation Credit — IDBE pending final approval. 24 additional hours of participation credit may be earned by presenting a clinical homework assignment after the course and presenting in October of 2017. There is an additional fee.

The weekend course consists of 3 separate workshops.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1455080362016{padding-right: 15px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

“Mastering the Direct Resin Restoration”

Th is session will explore how to produce the optimal composite resin restoration in both anterior and posterior teeth. Particular focus will be placed on proper preparation design, adhesive principles, placement techniques and polishing protocols, all designed to produce long-lasting and beautiful techniques. With anterior restorations particular emphasis will be placed on creating perfectly blended restorations that harmoniously achieve esthetic results. For posterior restorations we will focus on conservative techniques and proper bonding protocols that produce predictable results.

During this program practitioners will understand:

  • Self-etching principles and how they are applied to composite resins.
  • How to reproduce natural tooth characteristics using composite resin.
  • How to improve the appearance and longevity of composite restorations.
  • What is required of materials to be utilized for bulk-fill and how to place them correctly.
  • Proper placement techniques that maximize clinical outcomes and esthetics.
  • How to control post-op sensitivity.

“The Partial Ceramic Restoration”

Th is session will be an intensive day focused on partial ceramic resonations including veneers, inlays and onlays. Preparation techniques will be explored in depth. Additionally, particular focus will be placed on case design, provisional restoration fabrication and proper delivery and bonding techniques. By the end of this session, practitioners should be well versed in partial converge restorations.

During this program practitioners will:

  • Increase their understanding of proper preparation design and placement techniques.
  • Learn how to efficiently make provisional restorations
  • Learn appropriate bonding protocols for veneers and onlays
  • Select appropriate materials based on functional needs and esthetics.
  • Work effectively with laboratory support team to achieve lasting, esthetic results.

“The Ceramic Crown”

Th e fi nal day of the program will focus on the ceramic crown. In particular, diff erent ceramics will be discussed in length and correct preparation design for each type of ceramic material will be discussed in depth. Lithium Disilicate and Zirconia in both monolithic and layered design will be discussed. Proper adhesive principles will be reviewed and practiced by participants. By the completion of this session, practitioners will have a better understanding of how to navigate the ever expanding ceramic options in clinical practice.

During this program practitioners will:

  • Gain knowledge of modern ceramic materials and understand limitations and strengths of each type of material.
  • Learn the different preparation criteria for Lithium Disilicate, monolithic zirconia and layered zirconia
  • Fine-tune their preparation skills for specific materials and fabrications processes.
  • Practice impression techniques designed to capture flawless impressions the first time they are attempted.
  • Practice Provisional and bonding techniques for ceramic restorations.
