Cusp Replacement with Resin Based Composite: A Predictable Technique

New Course


Cusp Replacement 2

Course Description

Due to the increased predictability of current bonding procedures and the improved properties of today’s composite materials, large Class II and composite resin cusp build-up restorations are routinely performed. This webinar will present a combination of concepts and techniques to reduce the stress associated with polymerization shrinkage in large restorations, thus potentially improving the longevity of the restoration.


Course Objectives

Following completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Discuss the indications for posterior cusp replacement with resin-based composite.
  • Discuss when and how a cusp should be reduced.
  • Select the appropriate technique for material placement.
  • Recognize the importance of occlusion and polymerization shrinkage.
  • Discuss the principles of the centripetal and successive layering technique.
