Your dental assistants can make any clinical day miserable or fantastic – depending on their motivation, experience, education, and training! This video includes information and demonstration of the most commonly accomplished posterior tooth restorations. Techniques are shown for direct restorations, with suggested assistant involvement, for resin-based composite—with differences in technique shown for amalgam and the preventive resin-modified glass ionomer. It also shows assistant involvement for typical crown preparation and seating. Optimum materials and techniques are discussed and clinical techniques demonstrated. This video offers enhanced education for both your beginning and experienced dental assistants!
