Hands-On Introduction to Advanced Adhesion Dentistry:  Problem-Solving Techniques for Your Daily Practice

Saturday, December 8 at 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry
155 Fifth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

This course will present advanced adhesion techniques and materials supported by important key research that minimizes the removal of healthy tissue and maximizes bond strengths. 

In the last 25 years, there have been major advancements in material science, research, and techniques, however many of these advancements have not been implemented in the majority of dental practices. These techniques can be done simply on a daily basis and can solve virtually every problem with direct composite and indirect restorations A review of some of the popular trends in restorative dentistry that can negatively affect patient satisfaction and referrals will also be discussed.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • Immediate dentin sealing: The most important advancement in adhesion dentistry and why it dramatically increases dentin bond strengths for direct and indirect restorations
  • Minimally invasive approach to tooth preparation
  • How to raise deep margins with direct composite
  • How adhesive materials react and interact with natural tooth structure
  • Temporization of minimally prepared teeth
  • Treating cracks in dentin
     

You Will Learn

  • Step-by-step dentin bonding technique that dramatically increases dentin bond strengths with direct and indirect restorations (immediate dentin sealing)
