Dental material manufacturers tend to promote their respective materials using combinations of literature and various studies. Literature extols the physical properties of various materials, often using bar graph data to compare one competitor to another. The question is: what is the true importance of that “data” to “my dentistry?”

This CE webinar will discuss the clinical significance of those bar graphs. Life behind bars will take the listener into the world of material design and testing and attempt to connect the data to where it matters - the clinical application of the material. Mr. Connell will speak to the testing parameters and value of the data presented, while Dr. Ron Kaminer will discuss the clinical implications of the data being discussed.

In this 2-part live panel discussion, Drs. Robert A. Lowe and John C. Comisi from the Medical University of South Carolina, James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine in Charleston, SC discuss the use of heated composites in direct restorative dentistry. For many years, composite materials have been described as “packable” and “condensable”. Is this actually true? Since marginal adaptation and seal is an important component for long-term clinical success, traditional composite placement may not be the best way to achieve this goal. Heated composites may provide the clinician a more predictable way to deliver superior adaptation of the material to the cavity preparation without “condensation. If you are experiencing challenges with your composite restorations, this unique format “Q and A” format will allow you to ask the “professors” directly, as they discuss the clinical benefits and science behind the use of heated composites in restorative dentistry.
