Course Description

As people live longer, recession and abfraction lesions are more common than ever. If root coverage procedures aren’t feasible when evaluating treatment options, restorations can be a valid alternative. But why is it that Dentists often steer away from restoring them? Previously failed restorations and a lack of predictability with retention are likely contributing factors.

However, the good news is - there is an alternative way!

This course will teach you the conservative approach (yes, even without drilling) to restoring abfractions that even 5 years later can yield retention rates at over 90%. A Class V on a canine live hands-on portion will be included - you don’t want to miss this!

Learning Topics

  • Learn a simplified, conservative approach to successful restorative preparations
  • Identify the advantages of using a Giomer flowable restorative and what makes it unique
