Dental sealants are a staple for caries prevention but little has been done to update or upgrade their physical characteristics.

In reality, many of the complex bonding parameters influencing direct composite resin restorations affect the retention and longevity of pit and fissure dental sealants. This CE webinar will review evidence of dental sealant use and describe the critical parameters for long-term sealant retention. A newly developed technology will also be described as a novel and effective platform for promoting sustained enamel remineralization from a pit and fissure dental resin based dental sealant.

Light Curing Complexities! Clinical Simplicity!
Presenter: Dr. Richard Price and Dr. Joe Oxman
CE Supporter: 3M Dental

View Full Description »
In the last few years, several new posterior composites and light curing trends have been introduced that are intended to reduce the number of steps and save time when placing a posterior composite restoration. Bulk curing resin composites are now available that produce less shrinkage stress and can be light cured in up to 5 mm thick increments instead of the customary 2 mm thickness. Also, now that high output LED curing lights are available, this has created an expectation that teeth can be restored using just one large increment of composite in a shorter curing time. However, photo-curing of dental composites is governed by an array of complex interactions such as the light intensity, exposure time, photoinitiator system, initiator/light source spectral overlap, and the collective material optical properties. Consequently, light curing dental materials is not as simple as light on, and light off. This CE webinar will attempt to provide some insights into the complexities of photopolymerization and establish if the recent trend to bulk cure large composites in using short exposure times are realistic expectations, or just dreams that are too good to be true?
