AM Course – Updates in Dental Biomaterials: Dental Adhesives, Cements and Ceramics

Description

A significant factor in the clinical success of modern esthetic dentistry has been the development of dental adhesives, cements, and ceramics. Advancements in dental biomaterials have facilitated the growth of conservative dentistry, strengthening and supporting the remaining tooth structure without the need to remove healthy tooth tissue. The creation of a strong, durable, and bonded interface between materials provided important benefits and broadened the application of materials such as low-strength ceramics and indirect composites. This session presents modern aspects of the application of new simplified adhesive systems and cements to enamel, dentin, and ceramic materials.


Objectives

  • Explore the pros and cons of self-adhesive and universal systems
  • Discuss the most reliable clinical protocols for bonding and cementation of Fiber-Posts, Glass-based Ceramics (i.e., Lithium Disilicate), and Zirconia.

PM Course – Updates in Dental Biomaterials: Dental Composites, Light Curing Units and Artificial Intelligence

Description

Contemporary restorative dentistry is unthinkable without composite materials. Continuous improvements of these materials have expanded their indications for use and contributed to excellent clinical results in terms of function and esthetics. This presentation covers clinically relevant aspects of dental composites for direct restorations to meet the needs of dental assistants and dentists. We will cover topics such as the importance of dental curing light, current materials’ properties, and new formulations, classification criteria, esthetic appearance, and biological potential. Clinically relevant aspects include bonding to tooth tissues, polymerization shrinkage stress, secondary caries, repair, and longevity of composite restorations. Future perspectives discuss avenues for potential advancement of composite materials. Dental science is leveraging artificial intelligence-based solutions to help automate operations and make dental treatment faster and more effective. The latest systems incorporate brain-like approaches to “read” electronic medical records like humans to identify and classify dental findings and interpret key health care data. In restorative dentistry, such systems can efficiently convert patient teeth characteristics to design restorations and predict success.

Objectives

  • Discuss the importance of dental curing light
  • Current materials’ properties, and new formulations, classification criteria, esthetic appearance, and biological potential
  • Potential advancement of composite materials
  • Artificial intelligence based solutions to automate your dental practice
