The 5 Minute Finish for Undetectable Composite Restorations

Presenter: Dr. Susan McMahon Release Date: 6/16/22
Credits:  1 CEU   Expiration Date: 6/16/25
AGD Subject Code: 780
CE Supporter: SDI

Well over 76 million composite restorations get placed annually in the US according to the ADA. Direct composite restorations can be challenging for many clinicians. Insufficient interproximal contacts, post op sensitivity, recurrent decay, and inadequate anatomy are some of the issues. Finishing with traditional discs and cups can obliterate anatomy and cannot attain surface texture characteristics. New composites allow for easy placement, sculpting and polishing. The 5 Minute Finish technique gives clinicians the ability to place and finish anterior and posterior direct composite restorations that are undetectable.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will:
• Understand, identify and be able to sculpt appropriate anterior anatomy (line angles, lobes, emergence) and posterior anatomy (fossa, cusps, tertiary grooves).
• Attain proficiency in placing surface texture to match natural tooth structure and in polishing direct composite to a high luster while maintaining the texture.
• Be able to deliver undetectable direct composite restorations   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
