Reliably bonding direct and indirect restorations to both enamel and dentin is the single most important scientific discipline in modern dentistry. Over the past 18 years, adhesion has increased in effectiveness and predictability, but in turn has become complex and confusing. This CE presentation will address proper product selection, proper use of products and the variables that control the post-operative outcome.
This course will: --Clarify the histological differences between dentin and enamel and how these differences affect adhesion --Explain the role of C-Factor and uncontrolled polymerization stress plays on post-operative sensitivity and microleakage. --The science of total-etch and self-etching adhesive systems and understanding the proper indications for each. --Removing the myths behind “how wet is wet,” collagen fibril collapse, re-wetting agents and proper maintenance of the “vulnerable period.” --The role adhesive solvents play in adhesion --Resin cements: Indications and proper application of both total-etch and self-etch resin cements --Dozens of science-based tips that will finally end post-operative sensitivity in your practice for good!
