New Filler Technology Leads to a Clinical Breakthrough

Restorative dentistry is evolving and clinicians are embracing more conservative and protective materials in their practices. There is no need to unnecessarily remove tooth structure in order to generate retention due to the advancements of bonding techniques and protocols. And even though, tooth preparations need to follow certain guidelines, much can be achieved with adhesive dentistry conservatively.

REVEAL HD Bulk: Single Layer Composite Technique

Early advances in resin-based materials broadened their use to direct posterior restorations. Conventional composite resin restorations (designed to be placed in 2mm increments) are subject to problems associated with polymerization contraction, which may generate microfiltration, air trapped between layers, cuspal deflection & secondary caries. BISCO’s REVEAL® HD Bulk can be cured in 5-6 mm increments...​

A New Era of Composites Has Arrived

When it comes to composite restorations, dentists are often asked to sacrifice speed for quality, or quality for speed. This has been especially true when it comes to bulk fill composites, which brought the promise of larger increment sizes, but required specialized equipment or were otherwise difficult to handle. Now, clinicians can have a composite that easily adapts to the tooth and can be used in a true bulk fill technique. REVEAL® HD Bulk is BISCO’s new bulk fill...

Practice Management - Creating a Successful Team

A dentist is the leader of the practice. She/he serves as a role model and a mentor. Part of this ability to lead the team to the desired outcomes or practice goal is excellent communication. Leaders communicate in a variety of ways. Some dictate and some collaborate. One style of communication will earn more respect and “followers” than the other.

Practice Management - The Elephant in the Curriculum

As we begin a series of two articles on Practice Management, the focus will be on the fact we, as dentists, never received any (or minimal) Practice Management courses during our dental school years. If you graduated prior to the last decade, practice management was not even a blip on the curricular horizon. With the need to include all the basic sciences, building clinical skills and learning how to interact with patients, the proverbial cart was full.

TheraCem - The Next Generation Cement

Indirect restorative materials have evolved rapidly over the past few years, providing clinicians with a variety of options to better serve their patients. However, more choices in the substrate material often result in more steps in the cementation protocol, usually with specific and additional procedures that address the peculiarities of the chosen material.

Adhesion Dentistry 101

In 1955, Michael Buonocore, DDS docu¬mented the use of phosphoric acid to improve adhesion of resin to dental enamel. Since Dr. Buonocore’s observation, adhesion dentistry has played an important role in the evolution of dentistry. Bonding proce¬dures are performed by dentists every day, ranging from bonding orthodontic brackets to delivering stunning porcelain veneers. Because adhesion dentistry is such an indispensable part of the day to day practice of dentistry, a review of its principles w

Post & Core: An Essential and Time Proven Procedure

Why are posts still relevant, especially when implants are so readily available? Knowing when to place a post and core build-up versus extraction, possibly socket preservation with a bone graft, and subsequent implant placement and restoration can be a challenging task, and often an ethical dilemma. With the advent of implants and their known longevity, has the profession been too quick to deem a tooth hopeless or non-restorable?

TheraCal LC- Over 5 million restorations later: Are you getting the most of it?

After more than five years of extensive research and development, TheraCal LC was made available to clinicians in November 2011. It has been estimated that in the past three years, over five million restorations have been placed using TheraCal LC as a direct or indirect pulp capping material! TheraCal LC as a direct or indirect pulp capping material! The popularity and rapid growth of this product has certainly surprised BISCO, launching it to be one of their top selling products.

Universal Adhesives - The Evolution Continues for the Ideal Adhesive

In 2012, dental manufacturers started introducing new “universal” adhesives, which could be used as a total-etch (TE) and self-etch (SE) adhesive, and claimed it could replace all previous generations of adhesives. Ideally, the dream adhesive would satisfy the following criteria:
