'Simplicity without compromise – a realistic proposition?'
In the post-COVID era of dental practice, simplicity and predictability are paramount to the efficient running of a practice. In the past, 'simple' products sometimes meant that corners had to be cut, which led to less than ideal clinical performance.
This presentation will focus on the current generations of restorative products, which allows simple, predictable outcomes without compromising outcome or longevity.
We will discuss current adhesives for direct and indirect restorations, different composite techniques for different clinical situations and clinician preferences, and simplified luting of ceramic restorations.
By attending this webinar, participants will learn the following:
- The current state-of the-art of adhesion to tooth tissue and the current 'gold standard'
- How today’s composite resins allow high quality restorations to be delivered effectively and efficiently
- How adhesive cementation of indirect restorations can be simplified without compromising clinical outcomes.
