A whistle stop tour of anterior and posterior resin: very intensive with large hands on component.

What You Will Learn

The three main problems encountered by all dentists in direct resin placement are:

  • How to achieve invisible restorations
  • How to avoid post operative sensitivity
  • How to place adjustment free restorations.

Dentistry is a branch of medicine, which encompasses science, art and mechanical engineering: the competent operator must be a master of all three disciplines. Dr Smithson’s presentation covers the art of the anterior direct composite describing the protocol required to produce a class 4 restoration that is invisible to the human eye. This is followed by a more technical analysis of the process required to prepare and place a posterior composite resin restoration, which requires no or little occlusal adjustment. Finally, a novel technique is outlined which allows rapid restoration of deep class 1 cavities without post-operative sensitivity.
