Class II composite restorations remain the bread and butter procedure of many general dentists. Although this procedure may seem trivial, there are many clinical factors which lead to a long-lasting restoration, including diagnosis, isolation, caries removal, cavity preparation, use of liner, matrix and wedge placement, bonding technique, composite placement, and finishing and polishing. This course aims to review the techniques for each of these steps based on current evidence.
Discuss treatment guidelines for interproximal caries and caries removal endpoints.
Discover materials and techniques to promote a long lasting adhesive bond and create a well-adapted restoration.
