Advanced Posterior Composite Techniques
Recommended for: Dentists, Hygienists, Assistants | Subject: Restorative – Posterior
CE Credits: 3
This lecture on posterior composites will discuss different bonding protocols as well as the stress-reducing direct composite restoration technique (SRDC). In addition, participants will gain insight into the management of large Class II that require cusp build-up, decision making between packable and bulk-fill composites, and advanced matrix systems techniques.
- Recognize the key determinants of biological considerations that are essential in restorative dentistry.
- Select an isolation technique compatible with bonding procedures.
- Recognize signs of occlusal instability (risk factors) for the best protection of your restorations.
- Select the appropriate resin composite system based on the functional needs of the case.
- Recognize the need for a base or liner prior to final restoration.
- Select the bonding material and protocol for the restoration depending on the clinical demands.
- Recognize the benefits of the centripetal, successive cusp build-up, and stress-reducing direct composite restoration (SRDC) techniques for ideal esthetics and function to maximize the longevity of the restoration.
