Stop Layering, Start Injection Molding
I first wrote about injection molding in 2010, lamenting that Class II composites were in the middle of a fitful transformation. Eight years later, we are still in the midst of chaos. Why?

It has led many dentists to a state of discomfort or even paralysis, resulting in resistance to change.
