Title: The versatile indications, techniques and properties of composites: different approaches to day-to-day-cases with silicone based indirect restorations and nanohybrides!
Biography: Eren Cicek
My presentation deals with the versatility of composites (types and techniques), its many functions and indications. Composites is a well known, and well used material in every dental practice, all over the world. Its properties varies from being colorstable, flexible, elastomeric and resistant to incoming forces. The latest trend in the ever growing universe of composites is nano-hybrid composites, which is also entirely biocompatible. These are just few of many of the advantages of composites, which dentists are enjoying from their day-to-day work. Before the clinical cases, the subject of light curing is going to be mentioned briefly, as it is imperative for the clinician to excecute properly, this phase properly, for sufficient restorations on patients.
With a solid theoretical foundation on the newest cutting edge technology in the field of bonding and nanohybrides, which I build my clinical cases upon, I am going to show-case different approaches, to chair-side treatments in restorative dentistry. Various techniques, with various composite materials are going to be elaborated upon, with references to the newest of research in the aforementioned field. Everything from direct composite restorations using silicon stamps to a chair-side-preparation of indirect restorations, using die silicone. Furthermore the use of cutting edge materials, being nanohybrid-composites and bundled glass-fiber-posts are going to be examplified, to give a taste of what the future looks like for the respectable field of restorative dentistry.
