Class II Direct Resins: New Choices in Matrix Systems - Part 1

Description:
This 4 part lecture provides the viewer with options to improve the proximal contacts on Direct Class II resin systems. Dr. Glenn van As introduces and discusses some of the new choices available in matrix systems as they relate to enhancing successful contact development in class II direct resin restorations. In addition, he also shares some pearls about the choice and use of wedges for these restorations.

It is interesting for the speaker mentions the matrix that is a small piece comparing with circumferential matrix. Why is it good of using a short matrix?

Hi Maurice: Thanks for the comment on my video. In my practice I try to do more direct resin restorations under the scope for 3 surface or less restorations and something indirect for greater than 3 surfaces but again it does depend on whether there are cracks visible under the scope or whether the restoration weakens buccal or lingual walls. I have to do more direct resin restorations in my general practice simply because not all patients can afford full coverage or indirect reatorations all the time. In bevelling the occlusal surface, using the microscope at 8-12 X mag and filling in layers I reduce but of course do not eliminate the issues you have mentioned that do occur more often with direct restorations than with indirect. I do wish that I could do more indirect restorations but this is the nature of the beast in my practice and I hope the video might help provide some tips for those who like myself do the odd direct resin restoration. Thanks for the question Maurice and all the best to you and the wonderful crew at dental XP and at your awesome dental office. Truly amazing where you work!! Happy new year. Best Wishes Glenn

How many of our XP members are performing direct posterior resin composite restorations?
Any long term maintenance issues with micro leakage, marginal integrity or staining??

The Cycle of Tooth Preservation Via Stress-Reduced Direct Composite Restorations
This lecture will provide clinicians with an overview of differing biomimetic protocols and techniques to predictably restore the anterior and posterior dentition using a minimally invasive approach. Increasing interest has been developed on “Life-like” restorations also known as biomimetic restorations. These are either porcelain or resin based restoration that can be performed on the anterior and posterior areas of the mouth. They may adopt both an indirect and a direct technique. The common characteristic is that they are low stressed and highly bonded restorations able to reproduce the functional and optical characteristic of the natural dentition.

Evidence-Based Recommendations For The Use of Dental Adhesives
Dentists often rely on extrapolation from laboratory to clinical findings to predict the clinical behavior of dental adhesives. This lecture will give an overview of current adhesion strategies, respective advantages and disadvantages, and recommendations to optimize the application of recent universal adhesives. An evidence-based approach will highlight the myths and facts related to the interpretation of data from systematic reviews of clinical studies and a few laboratory studies.

Customize Your Composites For Your Patients
Today's composite resins have truly evolved to the point where you can several 'best' choice for any restorative situation. Using various case studies, this course will demonstrate the use of a family of low-shrinkage composites and proven techniques to provide many examples of the applications of different types of composites to provide excellent results. Additionally, we will discuss how to use the photography of these cases to create awareness to current, new, and potential patients through various marketing techniques.

Visagism: The Art of Dental Composition
The aim of this article is to present a novel concept: Visagism. The Visagism concept helps dental clinicians provide restorations that account not only for esthetics, but also for the psychosocial features of the created image, which affect patients’ emotions, sense of identity, behavior, and self-esteem. These factors, in turn, affect how observers react to patients following treatment.

Planning & Finishing Techniques

Planning & Finishing Techniques
Longevity and optimal aesthetics are critical aspects to consider when planning for direct composite resin restorations. While strength, wear resistance, and superior micromechanical retention are typically associated with functional durability, during the planning stage clinicians must equally consider aesthetic longevity, which includes retension of the original morphology, color stability, stain resistance, and marginal adaptation. To ensure optimum results for direct composite resin restorations,…
