Practical minimally invasive restorative techniques
Learn how to incorporate minimally invasive restorative dentistry techniques into your practice for maximum success.
This comprehensive, evidence-based, hands-on workshop offers clear, easily understood protocols for adopting a minimally invasive approach to restorative treatments. It has been designed for dentists to develop and enhance their clinical skills to a minimum intervention, preventive patient-centred approach.
Understand the latest minimally invasive remineralising and tooth-preserving technologies, adhesive restorative materials and techniques to clean, protect, restore and maintain dental disease aesthetically, long-term and effectively. Hands-on experience includes exercises such as surface sealing and posterior restorative techniques, using a range of restorative materials.
You will explore:
- minimally invasive techniques/procedures, including:
- airflow prior to surface protection and surface sealing and prior to fissure protection and fissure sealing
- tooth surface cleaning and preparation prior to restorative management
- enhancing adhesive bonding and cementation
- minimal invasive management of root surface lesions
- occlusal anatomy replication techniques.
- types of dental problems to manage, including:
- plaque identification and assessment in relation to examination and patient risk assessment
- patient risk groups and minimal invasive approaches for the very young, the elderly, special-needs and special-care patients, including tooth protection during orthodontics
- the oral environments and addressing demineralisation/remineralisation issues
- management of exposed root surfaces
- atraumatic and minimally invasive restorative management of paediatric and geriatric patients
- improving bonding and adhesion on compromised tooth surfaces.
- minimally invasive dentistry techniques, including:
- selection and use of fluorides in patient management, glass-ionomer cements in restorative management
- implications and use of injectable composite resins in minimally invasive dentistry
- tooth anatomy replication using translucent silicone templates (ExaClear)
- maintenance and minimally invasive repair of restorations.
