POSTERIOR COMPOSITES: A Rapid, Simplified Placement Technique
Course Description:Posterior composite resin restorations have become mainstream. These restorations seal teeth, reinforce remaining tooth structure, allow conservative preparations and satisfy patient desires for natural appearance. However, dentists complain that Class II composite restorations are exacting, tedious, time consuming, somewhat complicated, and aren’t always predictable. In addition, clinicians can sometimes be
confused by the vast choice of adhesives in the marketplace all claiming to be the best and report frustration whenever a Class II contact is to light or missed altogether.
In this presentation, Dr. Jackson will show a greatly simplified and efficient procedure for placing posterior composite restorations based on new materials and technology. In addition, the predictable, standardized protocol results in a significant reduction in both time and effort when placing these restorations.
Additional topics covered include:
• Matricing – achieving proper contacts everytime
• Understanding Adhesives and Adhesion – optimizing results
• Total Adaptation, Total Fill – in seconds
Following the lecture, participants will have the opportunity to place a Class II composite restoration using SonicFill™ (KaVo Kerr). Participants will discover that this system delivers a fast, easy and efficient single fill aesthetic restoration with high density and adaptation.
Learning Objectives:1) To examine current matricing techniques that insure predictable quality contacts
2) To understand Adhesion – making the right choice and doing it right
3) To achieve significant time savings without compromise, using bulk fill composite technology
