Practical Pearls for Clinical Use

Course Description: 

The contemporary restorative dentist has an increasing evidence base to consult when making both treatment planning and therapeutic decisions. However, there are numerous areas of controversy where the evidence does not provide a clear answer without interpretation. This presentation will discuss several controversial topics related to restorative dentistry and attempt to provide guidance based on the best available evidence.


Topics to be discussed include:

1.      An Evaluation of Current Ceramic Materials

2.      Diagnosis and Management of Dental Erosion

3.      Current Controversies in Restorative Dentistry

  • Amalgam vs. Composite Resin
  • Tooth reinforcement with adhesive materials
  • Contemporary Cement Selection
  • Etiology and Management of Non-carious Cervical Lesions
  • Bonding of Zirconia Restorations
  • Direct Pulp Capping: MTA vs. Calcium Hydroxide
  • Metal vs. Flexible Endodontic Dowels
  • Implants vs. Endodontics
  • Cemented vs. Screw-Retained Implant Supported Restorations
  • Cordless Gingival Displacement
  • Occlusal Vertical Dimension
  • Silver diamine fluoride

Learning Objectives:  

After attending this presentation, participants will:

            1. Understand the differences in presenting signs of intrinsic and extrinsic erosion.

            2. Understand which ceramic systems work and where they should be used.

            3. Understand when and how NCCLs should be restored.

            4. Understand when direct pulp capping should be accomplished and what materials to use.
