CONTINUING DENTAL EDUCATION

 February 2, 2019

Lecture Course
Advances in Direct Restorative Materials

SHARUKH S. KHAJOTIA, B.D.S., M.S., Ph.D.

OVERVIEW
Resin composites, CAD/CAM and 3-D printed resin materials for digital dentistry, and light-curing units are constantly evolving areas of restorative dentistry. In addition, the category of bioactive materials is rapidly evolving. Dentists are faced with a vast array of restorative dental biomaterials, and are expected to separate advertising from reality. In this presentation, Dr. Khajotia will differentiate among the various categories of resin composites, bioactive materials and light-curing units from the perspective of critical Biomaterials Science considerations and clinical use, without personal bias or commercial interests. He will also discuss CAD/CAM and resin-based 3-D printed materials for digital dentistry from that perspective.

During this presentation, Dr. Khajotia will review the composition, manipulation and properties of various types of resin composites including nano-hybrid, nano-filled, flowable and bulk-filled categories. Innovations in polymer chemistry will also be examined. In addition, recent developments in light-curing units and bioactive materials will be reviewed. Overall, this presentation will provide participants with the tools needed to review and select suitable resin composites, bioactive materials, materials for digital dentistry and light-curing units with confidence.
