Please join the LSU Health New Orleans and Dr. Jack Griffin for "Let’s Grow Tooth…Excellent clinical dentistry using bioactive/regenerative materials"
Let’s Grow Tooth…Excellent clinical dentistry using bioactive/regenerative materials
Ever had a patient say “Doc, that tooth was never a problem until you fixed it”? Let’s stop the madness. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could make the tooth grow? With newer regenerative/bioactive materials we can stimulate dentin healing and self-repair in our direct and indirect restorations all while reducing sensitivity. We will learn indications for newer liners, bases, cements, and restorative materials that encourage dentin repair, lessen sensitivity, and promote a healthier oral environment. We will apply these newer materials in our direct composite restorations while exploring matrix systems for predictable, tight, well contoured contacts. We will also consider regenerative materials when doing dentin replacement and cementation of durable esthetic indirect restorations like lithium disilicate and zirconia. We will learn how to do it right the first time and to make the practice more enjoyable and efficient.
Export to Outlook
The latest in regenerative materials such as dentin liners for dentin sealing, pulp capping, and thermal insulation for increased comfort and restoration success.
Cementation and infrastructure for zirconia and lithium disilicate crowns with materials that promote dentin formation and sealing of the restoration margins.
Efficient direct composite placement – preparation, bonding, matrix selection, bulk fill and bioactive materials for long term oral health.
