Lecture I: Injection Molding and Minimally Invasive Composite
Dentistry. You are invited to experience a unique
approach to modern resin dentistry. Join
us and learn how to create artistic magic with direct composite restorations
under the beautiful view of a clinical microscope. Direct Composite restorations are
under-promoted and under-appreciated in today's world of implants and computer
assisted ceramics. Yet direct composites
can be the least invasive, most Biomimetic, and wonderfully esthetic of all
restorations. The challenge is that we
must rely on our own hands to make the magic. Clark will present creative
solutions to overcome the major clinical impediments to modern resin
dentistry. At the completion of day one
the participants will:
Understand the optimal mix of flowable and paste
composite and the injection molding technique.
Be prepared to cut the new Class I Fissurotomy
preparation, the Clark Class II saucer preparation and restoration, and the
composite onlay preparation utilizing SS White
diamond and carbide instrumentation.
Understand the modern model of crack initiation
and propagation, and be able to identify and treat early tooth fracturing.
Have confidence combining Bioclear anatomic matrices,
emergence profile, and composite techniques for delivering esthetic dentistry
combined with papilla regeneration.
1) Diastema closure:
Dr Clark will demonstrate the benefits of direct composite on the
Bioclear Matrix System. Papilla
regeneration, proper emergence profile, and the staged wedging technique will
be demonstrated and performed by attendees.
Peg lateral and midline diastema s exercises will be performed.
2) Black Triangle closure:
The Black Triangle (open gingival embrasure) is a functional and
esthetic dilemma that afflicts more than one third of adults. Composite techniques in the past were
difficult and often compromised the periodontal health of the patient. The techniques that attendees will learn this
course are truly remarkable and alone worth the tuition price. Patients LOVE this procedure and the
potential is huge. Patients in the USA see the technique on YouTube and then
contact Dr. Clark asking to see a Bioclear trained dentist or travel great
distances to see Dr. Clark.
3) Deep anterior
caries. Because we have not had fully
anatomic matrices until Bioclear's introduction, achieving esthetic
restorations with proper emergence profile was nearly impossible for large
carious lesions in anterior teeth.
Attendees will receive an update in pulp cap research and will learn
techniques to achieve dramatic esthetic outcomes and healthy comfortable pulps
