Making Foolproof Class II Composites
Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD
Composite is the most-used restorative material in dentistry, but it is often difficult to place, occasionally sensitive, has a relatively short service life, and brings only moderate income. THIS VIDEO WILL OVERCOME THESE CHALLENGES! Gordon shares the best procedures, materials and devices as proven by Clinicians Report researchers and clinicians. If your technique follows the steps shown in this video, you will have better looking, more predictable, faster placed, and longer-lasting class II composite restorations. The new concepts for types of class II restorations such as bulk-fill, dual-cured materials, combos of resin and conventional glass ionomer, as well as total disinfection of the tooth preparations are compared with the previous conventional concepts being thoroughly demonstrated by Gordon. This information will help you offer your patients the best, most reliable class II resin restorations!
