D&S Dental Lab is proud to present Dr. Jack Griffin's "Let’s Stick Together…Simplifying restoration choice, bonding and cementation"
So many materials, so little time. With a myriad of newer restorative materials and seemingly endless choices in luting materials and bonding systems could this stuff be any more confusing? There are excellent materials today that can help us minimize sensitivity, decrease de-bonding, stop microleakage, and reduce ther problems we may have with indirect restorations. They key is having an arsenal that is versitile and almost universal in application and understanding how and when to use them. When do we etch, bond, cement, rinse, blow, cure......? Ever had a patient say “Doc, that tooth was never a problem until you fixed it”? Let’s stop the madness.
The goal of this course is to simplify materials and techniques to provide great success with an increased efficiency. We will learn indications for newer materials such as Lithium Dislicate and Zirconia with preparation and placement methods for each. The bonding of direct and indirect restorations will be explored with emphasis on conservative bridges and cosmetic temporaries for office efficiency and patient happiness. Next we will cover the placement of posts, cores, and build up materials that will provide us with the dependable infrastructure we need for years of patient pleasing service. Each participantwill place a veneer, cement and bond a full porcelain crown, bond a zirconia crown, do an esthetic post and core, and place conservative porcelain restoration. We will DO what we have learned.
