In this information filled CE webinar, Dr. Lowe will discuss and demonstrate techniques to simplify the placement of direct posterior composite restorations. Traditional layering techniques can be tedious and time consuming. The use of bulk fill materials can simplify the process and save valuable chair time, while recent developments in bulk fill technologies produce excellent results for both the patient and the doctor. Other clinical challenges of placing Class II direct composites (proximal contact and contour) and soft tissue management will also be discussed.
Dr. Bob Kaspers will show how a CBCT scan can help orthodontists diagnose their patients more accurately than with 2D radiographs. He will also show the clinician the importance of addressing the vertical dimension to enable the patient to achieve a seated condylar position at the end of orthodontic treatment. If you want to make your referring dentists happy, you will want to learn this technique.
If current adhesion techniques are confusing, you are not alone! This CE webinar will bring clarity to the products on the market today along with lending a better understanding of how and when they are used.

In this informative CE webinar, Dr. Lowe will discuss how bioactive dental materials are influencing the way we approach the selection of luting agents for cementation of crown and bridge restorations.
Older formulations of pastes containing Recaldent required the “extra step” of application after routine oral hygiene practices.

In this CE webinar, don't miss out on learning about this new, innovative and highly beneficial technology!
This class will provide excellent clinical information, however, it is not for CE credit.
