Download Course PDF

Filling teeth with tooth-colour direct restorative materials and the associated enamel/dentin bonding systems represent the main bulk of daily dental practice. Many restorative materials and bonding systems are available commercially for professional dental use. However, it is always a challenge to choose which materials and bonding system?
We always hear about many confusing products/techniques from dental companies, as below:

  • Nano-filled s versus conventional restorative materials and adhesives; does it really make a difference?
  • Bioactive (ion-leachable) materials versus conventional materials; a new perspective!
  • Organically-modified ceramics technology; back to the future!
  • Bulk fill restorative materials; is it truly worth a try?
  • Etch-and-rinse, self-etch and universal dentin adhesives; Myths and Reality!
  • Total etch versus selective etch; is it just a political approach?
  • Future materials and technology; what to expect in the near future?

In this half-day course, we will address several questions that many dental practitioners face in everyday practice based on the real scientific concepts behind. It will be too controversial and confusing, but for sure it will introduce you to the true world of restorative/adhesive dental materials science and its relation to your materials selection, purchase, handling and expectations. The presenter will discuss many commercially available materials and bonding systems, away from commercial noise. Finally, the complex interaction of materials, biological, patients and clinical limitations will be discussed.
