Applications and Implications of GBT in Restorative Dentistry (4 CPD)

Contemporary restorative dentistry relies on developing the best possible adhesive interface between the tooth structure and the restoration. Key to this is creating the ideal tooth surface to ensure optimal mechanical and chemical bonding when using adhesive restorative materials. Clinicians frequently use a range of etchants, conditioners, primers and bonding agents in the adhesive process, but they may not achieve ideal results if the tooth surface has not been effectively cleaned prior to the surface preparation. This hands-on workshop will look at the use of Guided Biofilm Therapy to create more predictable tooth surface preparation for preventive and restorative procedures. Along with a range of excercises including surface sealing and posterior restorative techniques, utilising a range of restorative materials.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Understanding the concepts of Clean, Protect, Restore and Maintain
  • Predictable tooth surface cleaning and protecting exposed root surfaces
  • Optimising AIRFLOW® powders to various restorative procedures
  • Optimising adhesive interfaces and increasing longevity of restorations
  • Managing subgingival restorations and gingival inflammation
  • Patient friendly procedures – making it easier for the young, old, and anxious patients
  • Complete different types of restorations using a range of restorative
    materials and techniques
