Restore, Recharge and Remineralize: The Keys to Provide Lasting Restorations
Alsip, IL • November 15, 2019 • 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Glass ionomers have come a long way over the years: it began a few decades ago as a short-term pediatric restoration and now it has a wide array of indications, including luting agents, sealants, bases and final restorations, just to name a few. This course will describe the mechanism of action of glass ionomers and glass-hybrid restoratives and the many ways we can use them in our dental practices. The hands-on portion of this course will provide participants an opportunity to place glass ionomer-based sealants and restorations, including using the open and closed sandwich techniques. Glass ionomers provide many options for a variety of clinical situations and this course will describe them all!
