Streamlining bonding procedures
Irrespective of whether you place direct or indirect restorations, in both cases, you will deal with a bonding protocol, which could be very variable depending on the situation at hand and your personal preferences. Self-etch / etch & rinse / selective etch – these are just a few examples of possible procedures for the tooth surface. When luting an indirect restoration, it is additionally necessary to perform the pretreatment steps on the restoration side. These procedures are also very material-specific. Conventionally, separate adhesives and primers (sometimes of different generations) are used to facilitate every single technique. Now the following questions arise: Can universal adhesives be used as a substitute for all other bonding agents and primers? Are there any limitations or compromises? This webinar covers both bonding mechanisms to the tooth and restoration surfaces, as well as optimal technique selection to streamline your bonding protocols for direct and indirect restorations.
In this webinar, you will learn more about the following themes:
- Overcoming challenges in bonding to the tooth
- Bonding mechanisms to the restorative material
- Understanding universal adhesives
