In this second part of the 2 part live panel discussion, Drs. Robert A. Lowe and John C. Comisi from the Medical University of South Carolina, James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine in Charleston, SC discuss the use of heated composites in direct restorative dentistry. For many years, composite materials have been described as “packable” and “condensable”. Is this actually true? In this segment, the doctors will take a ”deep dive” into the myriad of composite materials and placement techniques and discuss how heated composites can help solve many of the common problems encountered in “every day” practice.
If you are experiencing challenges with your composite restorations, this unique format “Q and A” format will allow you to ask the “professors” directly, as they discuss the clinical benefits and science behind the use of heated composites in restorative dentistry. This is a continuation of the 2 part CE webinar series not to be missed!
In this CE webinar, some of the topics of discussion will include: • the history of incremental composite placement and potential for microleakage • clinical challenges of creating an “optimal” marginal seal with adhesive resin materials • viscosity and adaptation of composite in cavity preparations – It all started with “flowable” composites • advantages of heated composites in clinical placement • the effects of heating composite of the materials’ physical properties • the future of composite placement in restorative dentistry
