Bioactives: Making Restorative Dentistry Regenerative Dentistry
Gregg A. Helvey, DDS, MAGD, CDT
Date: Saturday, December 1, 2018
Upon completion, each attendee will learn:
- The definition of bioactive restoratives
- The history of bioactive materials
- The various types and how they work
- Advantages and disadvantages of using bioactives
- Indications and contra-indications for use
- How bioactives effect dental implants
- Become familiar with endoscopic image interpretation.
This course will address the issues of nearly half of all restorations being placed in the United States are replacements for failing or defective restorations and that composite restorations account for a higher amount of failures compared to other types of restorative materials. Failures at the interface between the tooth and the restoration is usually the culprit.
Recent literature examines the surge of bioactive properties that restorative materials have now incorporated in order to arrest or at least curb the demineralization process before extensive invasive damage occurs. This course will also address whether or not bioactives play a role in the success of implants.
