LOn March 3rd and 4th, we taught the second module of the first edition of composites. The objectives of the course were: to obtain an exhaustive, up-to-date knowledge of adhesives nowadays, commenting on the current status of the philosophy of self-etching adhesives and cements, to practice the techniques of absolute isolation with rubber dam, to teach our philosophy and protocol for direct restorations and explain step-by-step how to perform incrustations with composites using semi-direct and indirect techniques
One of the main problems we currently have in our consultations is related to contact points. Matrices and wedges are imperfect tools that create proximal anatomies that are not realistic. In this course we present different solutions, tricks and tips to help solve these drawbacks.
In the hands-on workshop we taught students how to create a silicone model to carry out indirect techniques. At D91 we follow a protocol with materials that allow us to create reliable models that do not have practically any pores so we can work safely.
The students made composite incrustations and were taught cases with a high level of difficulty, protocolizing cavity design, impression-taking, subgingival techniques, polishing and cementation of restorations.
And all of this in a pleasant and relaxed environment.
