Welcome to the Classroom
Understanding Restorative Options for Direct Composite Restorations 
Presenter: Dr. Bob Lowe Release Date: 8/27/19
Credits: 1 CEU, Free Self-Study Expiration Date: 8/27/27
AGD Subject Code: 250 Reviewed: 2024        

For most general practitioners, direct composite restorations are a large part of everyday dental practice. Many clinicians have a “favorite material” or “favorite technique” that is universally applied to all clinical situations. Given the variety of patients and clinical issues that present, is important that the dentist “be the doctor” and prescribe the restorative material that is best for each clinical situation! This CE webinar will explore different approaches to the restoration of a Class II cavity preparation based on clinical parameters and discuss techniques and materials choices that will help to maximize results and restoration longevity.

During this CE webinar, we will discuss:
• Traditional layering versus bulk fill composites.
• Indications for use of glass ionomer cement as a “dentin substitute” – “open sandwich” and “closed sandwich” techniques.
• “Bonding” versus “sealing” – clinical indications and protocols
• Tissue management and matrix selection for Class II direct composites.
• Placement and finishing techniques for modern composite materials.
• Expanding the uses for direct composite in clinical practice.   ( disclaimer , AGD PACE Statement )
