Best Practices from DA Education to Put to Use Tomorrow
Recommended for: Assistants | Subject: Restorative/Assisting | CE Credits: 3
Team members will leave this interactive hands-on program with tips to deliver better patient care. Assistants can better understand procedures and/or why procedures may fail, while EFDAs will review restorative advances. New sealant and coronal polishing materials, matrix options, advances in shading/layering of direct composite procedures, and temporization techniques will be presented. Since the esthetic aspect of dentistry requires a commitment to life-long learning, resources will be reviewed to keep abreast of these advancements. Participants will be encouraged to share techniques for success from their own experiences.
- Discuss advancements of adhesive and composite materials including matrix systems and placement techniques using value-based materials and challenging preparations.
- Review indications, procedures, and new materials for dental sealants and coronal polishing.
- Review criteria for clinically acceptable provisionals and indirect mock-up techniques.
- Describe what factors most affect successful or failed clinical results.
