As a consensus on this issue I believe that we all agree that moisture is the enemy of resin bonding techniques. Yet, most are not using rubber dam isolation as a routine. research showing high failure rates of resin do not seem to take this most basic and severe technique faux pas into account. You can use all the improved bonding materials and resins you want but I am afraid that this "elephant in the room" continues to be ignored. I use rubber dam on almost all restorations and feel that failure rates published don't jibe with what I experience clinically when rubber dam application, occlusion, hygiene, remaing tooth structure (size of restoration) are taken into account. Thanks Maurice. Bob

NO DENTISTRY WITHOUT RUBBER DAM.ESPECIALLY ADHESIVE DENTISTRY. With all respect to the lecturer, many issues in this lecture. First, the rubber dam issue,it is mandatory to place rubber dam whilel doing adhesive dentistry or endo, it is not a choice. it is MANDATORY. Second,we don't adapt products to well known clinical techniques through research and literature,like incremental layering of the resin composite and promote a trendy resin like Bulk fill which is an adaptation to the needs of dentist who like to RUSH filling up cavities on behalf of simple physics of material behavier. Showing a case of defect restoration and blame it to the incremental layering techniques,is not a successful drill. Third, class V case: can anyone explain to us how can we prevent the sulcus fluids not to contaminates the class V cavities if we not properly isolate the most sensitive restoration in a adhesive dentistry(classV). Fourth, it will add 60 seconds to the time of treating the superficial upper molar amalgam,either it is for old or young people. because the interface between composites and amalgam is an open wide gate to bacterial contamination. and many other issues which you can find answers on dentalXp on the link on Dr. Maurice Salama comment. Regards. Nassib Fares.

Robert; What are your thoughts on this issue? Should we use or not use Rubber dam with direct resin restorations? I know Dr. Nassib Fares ONLY uses Rubber dam and he has some great material on XP.

How many resins are done with rubber dam in the United States?

Jack Manikowski - (2/6/2012 10:33 AM)

Thanks for the great review, Lou!

Great stuff.
"What are you kidding me?"
I loved the way you come across.

kevin potocsky - (1/18/2012 7:46 PM)

do you bevel the buccal and lingual enamel margins of the prox box area? tough access? and do you recomend a surface sealer at the end of polishing. what are your thoughts on pulse curing theory?

Sam Busich - (1/17/2012 10:29 PM)

Dr. Graham. What is your preferred material for root or dentin bonding? Also, what would you select for erosion defects prior to soft tissue grafting in recession areas? thank you Sam

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.

Selecting the Right Composite for the Anterior Segment
In this presentation, Dr. Fahl will introduce the necessary concepts for the general practitioner to implement direct composite restorations in the anterior segment. A systematic approach for solving day-to-day challenges will be introduced based on the physical and color properties of current restorative systems. The selection of appropriate materials for distinct areas of the anterior dentition will be discussed and presented within the realm of its clinical significance. Dr. Fahl will include tips and tricks for achieving seamless, long-lasting artistic composite restorations.

Smile Design and The Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototype (BFEP) Premium Member Content

Smile Design and The Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototype (BFEP)
The lecture will cover some simple Photoshop techniques to enhance a smile digitally to present to the patient and motivate them to accept treatment. This lecture will mainly focus on the the step-by-step process of how to turn the 2-dimensional Photoshop smile design into a 3D Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototypes (BFEP’s) the patient wears to verify esthetic and functional acceptance. A very efficient technique using a new highly flowable but highly filled micro-hybrid that uses an injection molding tray technique will be demonstrated. A full arch composite bonding can be done in one hour with this technique. This BFEP technique can be used for “trial smiles” for pre-treatment esthetic and functional evaluation by the patient and the treatment team. It can also be used for long-term functional temporization for years if necessary. The BFEP will then be used as the final guide for preparations for Anterior Etched Ceramic restorations (porcelain veneers and glass ceramics.

Fatigue Resistance and Crack Propensity of Novel "Super-Closed" Sandwich Composite Resin Restorations in Large MOD Defects

Fatigue Resistance and Crack Propensity of Novel "Super-Closed" Sandwich Composite Resin Restorations in Large MOD Defects
To asses the influence of conventional glass ionomer cement (GIC) vs resin-modified GIC (RMGIC) as a base material for novel, super-closed sandwich restorations (SCSR) and its effect on shrinkage-induced crack propensity and in vitro accelerated fatigue resistance. A standard MOD slot-type tooth preparation was applied to 30 extracted maxillary molars. A modified sandwich restoration was used, in which the enamel/dentin bonding agent was applied first, followed by a Ketac Molar or Fuji II LC base, leaving 2mm for composite resin material. Shrinkage induced enamel cracks were tracked with photography and transillumination. Samples were loaded until fracture or to a maximum of 185,000 cycles under isometric chewing, starting with a load of 200 N and gradually up to a maximum of 30,000 each...
