We are moving towards a day when dental restoratives are no longer inert materials that merely occupy the space made by th­­e cavity preparation. Cavity liners and restorative materials now have the capability of helping to rebuild and remineralize affected tooth structure and help protect the teeth from acid attack. In this 1-hour webinar, Dr. Lowe will discuss technologies that allow for early diagnosis of carious lesions and demonstrate techniques to conservatively prepare and restore these teeth using bioactive restorative materials. You will learn when and where use of these materials is indicated.

Our goal as dental health care providers should be to maximize tooth longevity by diagnosing caries early and restoring with materials that can heal and strengthen the compromised tooth. Today’s new smart materials, in combination with efficient finishing techniques, will enable simple yet world class placement of restorations for your patients tomorrow.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the latest tools for early diagnosis of dental decay, beyond the x-ray and explorer 
  • Learn techniques for conservative, minimal preparation of carious lesions that conserve a maximum amount of tooth structure
  • Discuss what the difference is between infected dentin and affected dentin
  • Learn what bioactive dental materials are and how can they help in the repair of sick teeth
  • Become familiar with finishing and polishing techniques that create natural surface texture and reflection
