Bonding to dentine has been an essential part of restorative dentistry for decades, but its reliability has improved with new formulations and the advent of one bottle bonding. This presentation will attempt to demonstrate that the recently introduced “universal” bonding agents are a significant advance, and if bonding is as good as that, the talk will explore what we can do in treatment of fractured teeth and tooth wear.
It will also examine the latest resin composite materials for restoration of posterior teeth – the bulk fill materials – along with their advantages and disadvantages.
Finally, Burke! This section of the presentation will look at contemporary ways of treating deep caries, including treatment with tricalcium silicate. It will also examine the results from the biggest dental dataset for research which affects/will affect not only the time for replacement of restorations, but more importantly, the effect of the restoration on the lifespan of the tooth. Therefore, we can now provide some pointers about when crowning a tooth extends its lifespan. Almost never!
Throughout the presentation, clinical examples from the speaker’s own clinical practice will be included, alongside results from the latest dental literature.
