This TubulesTalk Part 1 is for all dentists who wish to experience a unique approach to modern resin dentistry. The Bioclear Method offers a unique and cutting edge alternative to traditional direct composite restorations. It introduces the use of ‘injection moulding’ composite placement techniques with the use of the anatomic Bioclear matrix system.

Background: Direct composites are underappreciated in today’s world of implants and computer-assisted ceramics. Posterior tooth preparations have not been reinvented from the 1890 G V Black models. Those preparations no longer have a place in today’s composite dentistry. Dentist and inventor Dr David Clark founded Bioclear in 2007. He has created a new system for a modern approach to restorative dentistry. The Bioclear Method provides the latest, most progressive products and techniques evolving from the traditional preparations, and anatomical matrix systems, for anterior and posterior composite restorations. The method gives dentists the tools and equipment to allow for longer lasting, stronger, and aesthetically superior composites.

Composite can be the least invasive restorative option, producing the most natural and wonderfully aesthetic of all restorations.
