Longevity is the key.
As restorative dentists our main goal is to provide long lasting restorations to our patients.
In a pursuit of long term success we will discuss the sequences used to accomplish the ideal preparation of our dental substrate for a highest bonding performance .
We will talk about the importance of the decontamination of the oral cavity, the need of rubber dam isolation and the different preparations of the substrate prior to bonding.
For these 3 main topics we will focus about the understanding of the Why and How:
– Decontamination by the means of air abrasion – which powders do we have at our disposal in the market nowadays and how to select them.
– Rubber dam isolation, more than a trend – in this presentation we will go trough the correct material to use and it’s importance, along with the strategy, in order to provide a fast and effective rubber dam isolation.
– Substrate preparation, how are we going to prepare the surface for bonding. Treating it with glycine, aluminium oxide or bioglass?
