Questions & Comments
Robert Burstein - (7/10/2014 9:22 AM)

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?

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

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.

Prosthetic Gingival Reconstruction in a Fixed Partial Restoration - Part 1: Introduction to Artificial Gingiva as an Alternative Therapy
The Class III defect environment entails a vertical and horizontal deficiency in the endentulous ridge. Often, bone and soft tissue surgical procedures fall short of achieving a natural esthetic result. Alternative surgical and restorative protocols for these types of prosthetic gingival restorations are presented in this three-part series, which highlights the diagnostic and treatment aspects as well as the lab and maintenance challenges involved.

The Centripetal Build-Up for Composite Resin Posterior Restorations

The Centripetal Build-Up for Composite Resin Posterior Restorations
This paper introduces a new technique for creating Class II posterior composite restorations - the centripetal build-up. This technique replaces the lost tooth structure from the periphery towards the center of the cavity, thereby achieving better marginal adaptation to the gingival floor. Since overfilling is rare, rotary finishing is minimized. This method allows the creation of long-term aesthetic posterior composite restorations, while utilizing conventional auxiliary (ie, metal matrix bands…
