To inject or not to inject
Resin composites are used more and more in the daily routine of the restorative dentist. Additive adhesive dentistry is now preferred by dentists and patients alike. In this presentation we will evaluate the main two techniques or composite resin application; freehand layered and injection moulded.
The rapid innovation of composite material in the last two decades and the availability of various types of composites, has given today’s clinicians an extremely convenient and cost-effective tool for their practice. Direct composites provide the clinician with the ability to create excellent aesthetic results with minimal tooth destruction in a very efficient manner. In this presentation we will compare and contrast the main two techniques of direct composite resin application; freehand layered and injection moulding.
We will break down several clinical scenarios and compare the two techniques in an interactive way.
Learning objective 1: what is freehand layering and what is it best at
Learning objective 2: What is injection moulding and what is it best at
Learning objective 3: Outline the limitations of both techniques
Learning objective 4: Discuss step by step technical and clinical steps
Learning objective 5: Briefly discuss maintenance, pricing, and consenting
