CE Topic: Adhesive Dentistry – Maximizing the Placement of Anterior and Posterior Composites
The use of composite resin material as a direct restorative for anterior and posterior restorations has
dramatically increased in the market place. With self-etching technology emerging as a viable
alternative to traditional techniques and the development of new technology to assist clinicians with
bulk-fill techniques, it is easy to get confused and fall behind. What materials will you advocate for use
in your practice? What has the literature been revealing on materials in current use? Should
practitioners change their current techniques? What preparation design will you utilize?

This program will attempt to make sense of all of the products and techniques available in today’s
market place and will focus on materials and their applications as well as a brief review of some of the
literature. Emphasis will be placed on new developments in the composite area as well as outline what
developments to watch for in the coming years.
Learning Objectives:
-Self-etching principles and how they are applied to composite resins.
-How to reproduce natural tooth characteristics using composite resin.
-How to improve the appearance and longevity of composite restorations.
-What is required of materials to be utilized for bulk-fill and how to place them correctly.
- Proper placement techniques that maximize clinical outcomes and esthetics.
-How to control post-op sensitivity.
- The mechanisms of bonding systems and learn to control sensitivity.
-The differences between the various composites available to clinicians.
