One of the most frustrating daily operative challenges is creating the perfect interproximal contact, both with ‘tightness” and contour. Improper tightness either prevents flossing or, more likely if not tight enough, allows the interproximal packing of food. But just having a tight contact is not enough, not at all because the incorrect contour causes the growth of both cariogenic bacteria and periodontal pathogens. Mimicking nature and restoring to original form is the only way to prevent further disease. This means using the best contoured sectional matrix and bitine ring armamentarium you can find. Fortunately, there is an answer. And just in time for the newly improved bulk-fill resin-based composites, some that are biointeractive or even bioactive!
This presentation will provide the attendee with the latest and best in the proper contact creation. The restorative materials discussed will included bioactive, biointeractive, and bulk fill. Additionally, polishing and contact correction methods will be presented.
If you are unable to attend the live event, don't worry. We'll automatically send out a recording one business day after the live event (to attendees and non attendees), but you must register in advance.
At the end of the webinar, the attendee will understand:
How to define bioactive and biointeractive
Advantages and disadvantages of bulk fill
The role of the refraction index of dental materials and proper light curing
Advantages of Composi-Tight 3D Fusion wedges and the contoured matrix
Correct placement of the bitine ring
Polishing the restoration and adjusting the contour as necessary
