This course aims to update the general practitioner on a variety of topics that affect the biological response and longevity of posterior composite restorations. This course will increase your knowledge on the different bonding protocols as well as the stress reducing direct composite restoration techniques (SRDC). In addition, participants will gain insight into the management of large Class II that require cusp build-up, decision making between pack-able 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 occlusal instability signs (risk factors) and plan ahead the occlusion for best protection of these direct composite restorations.
- Select the appropriate resin composite system based on the functional needs of the case.
- Recognize the need for a base of 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 to maximize the longevity of the restoration.
- Understand the benefits and clinical indications of build-fill composites.
