Successful Composite Resin Restorations - Part 1 of 2

Description:
Amalgam has been a durable successful dental restorative material; however this material has recently come under question due to its mercury content and disposal. Composite resin materials range from flowable to highly filled condensable type viscosities. There are many factors that influence the success of posterior composite resin restorations. This presentation will identify the factors that limit success (size, patient type, caries risk, shrinkage, curing light) and the materials that can be successfully used to restore posterior teeth. Beginning with flowable materials and their clinical application the presentation will discuss the open sandwich technique, use of flowable posterior restorations, sectional matrices and fluoride, calcium and phosphate releasing materials.

Thank you Maurice. Looking forward to it

Great material. Has part 2 been uploaded?

Nasri and Stephen; Keep an eye out. Part 2 coming soon....

Thanks a lot! but I couldn't find the part 2 of this fantastic Lecture. Greeting from Germany! Nasri Shwehdy

Great info. Looking for "part 2"?

David Garber - (8/27/2015 10:55 AM)

I only just this minute finished listening to your program and so appreciated "the quality & vast quantity of information" you were able to get across to us all . . . . It is amazing how rapidly the world of composite and adhesion changes, and how imperative it is for us all to get the type of concise clear update you just gave us - even if only to rid us of incorrect habits - me included ! - so valuable to me and and sure to all our members -

Richard Trushkowsky - (8/25/2015 9:11 PM)

You discussed polymerization shrinkage but you didn't discuss polymerization stress. Is this a factor especially with thin walls?
With materials like Activa what is your technique in developing anatomy (you can't sculpt-requires rotary) and do you rely on the sectional matrices for a good contact or overlay with conventional composite.
Great lecture as always looking forward to second part

Robert Burstein - (8/25/2015 3:51 PM)

"larger base" meaning thicker base! compressive strength and resilience. Lack of adhesion of the base as a material to tooth and subsequent resin. Polymerization shrinkage of flowables is less meaningful when used as a base.

Ronald Goldstein - (8/23/2015 3:17 PM)

I have always been impressed with the excellent research and reports coming from Dr. Burgess's work. And this lecture proves he gives a tremendous amount of helpful information to the restorative dentist in a short amour of time…Makes me have to listen several times to comprehend all the useful tips.

The Cycle of Tooth Preservation Via Stress-Reduced Direct Composite Restorations Premium Member Content

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.

Clinical Tips for Posterior Composites Premium Member Content

Clinical Tips for Posterior Composites
Despite the popularity of posterior composites, it is a topic that still creates questions and frustrations for many clinicians. Our goal is to place these restorations with ease and success to create long lasting results. We will discuss preparation design, material selection, matrices, and placement techniques. One of the most common questions I get is about predictably creating tight contacts, and we will look at several techniques to ensure this happens.

Clinical Excellence in Operative Dentistry: Not Only A Question of Color & Fancy Trends
Nowadays the maintenance of “a nice smiling” represents the main desire of our patients and the request for tooth colored restorations is very high. Predictable and repeatable results can be achieved through materials and clinical practices that, on one hand, preserve the original structure of the compromised tooth and, on the other hand, involve a very low biologic price. New technologies for the enamel-dentinal adhesion and the continuous evolution of more sophisticated esthetic materials as composite and porcelains allow the effective reaching of verifiable and predictable results. This lecture aims to point out the relevant guidelines in both direct and indirect techniques for esthetic restorations through the evaluation of techniques and materials in order to reach correct, standardized and long lasting evidence based clinical results.

3 C's of Composite: Contour, Color and Creativity
Mastering composite artistry is the most challenging tooth replacement procedure clinicians are asked to preform. It requires the clinician to understand the optical, physical, handling and mechanical properties of a resin filled with quartz, silica and glass. Combining these attributes to reproduce the natural dentition three dimensionally in contour and color is our goal. Adding a bit of imagination, the clinician can create restorations that are brilliant and ultimately seamless and undetectable.

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,…
