This dynamic educational lecture/workshop focuses on the practical application of minimally invasive restoration into your dental practice. Attendees will learn how to use new materials and technologies to preserve tooth structure and provide affordable, life-enhancing treatments for their patients.
During this fast-paced, 4-credit hour course, attendees will learn about biomechanical function and preservation of tooth structure during bulk filling, bonding and composite restoration procedures. Minimally invasive concepts and methods are explored using a combination of lecture and hands-on exercises in three modules.
• Module 1: Dentin substitution using a biomimetic bulk-fill composite material (tooth #3, MOD-LI, class II)
• Module 3: Freehand restoration using a next-generation universal submicron composite (anterior class IV, tooth #9)
