In this 2-part live panel discussion, Drs. Robert A. Lowe and John C. Comisi from the Medical University of South Carolina, James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine in Charleston, SC discuss the use of heated composites in direct restorative dentistry. For many years, composite materials have been described as “packable” and “condensable”. Is this actually true? Since marginal adaptation and seal is an important component for long-term clinical success, traditional composite placement may not be the best way to achieve this goal. Heated composites may provide the clinician a more predictable way to deliver superior adaptation of the material to the cavity preparation without “condensation. If you are experiencing challenges with your composite restorations, this unique format “Q and A” format will allow you to ask the “professors” directly, as they discuss the clinical benefits and science behind the use of heated composites in restorative dentistry. This is a CE webinar series not to be missed!

In this CE webinar, some of the topics of discussion will include:
• the history of incremental composite placement and potential for microleakage
• clinical challenges of creating an “optimal” marginal seal with adhesive resin materials
• viscosity and adaptation of composite in cavity preparations – It all started with “flowable” composites
• advantages of heated composites in clinical placement
• the effects of heating composite of the materials’ physical properties
• the future of composite placement in restorative dentistry   ( disclaimer , AGD PACE Statement )
