As the first step in the restoration process, cavity preparations are only as successful as the technique and tools used for each application. Here are the steps and tools needed for cavity prep success.
Advanced materials science is changing single-visit dentistry. CEREC Tessera blocks, made of high-performance ceramic material, are the latest example.
In the world of so many generations of materials and multiple clinical approaches, how to properly seat a restoration for clinical success and longevity can be quite a dilemma. Choosing the proper cement for each application has become a much more complicated process. Here’s what to look for in a resin-modified glass ionomer cement.
Performing beautiful, lifelike restorations requires a tremendous amount of skill, expertise and attention to detail. See how Artisan by Kerr can help you achieve radiant results that last.
When choosing a CEREC block to work with, given all the choices on the table, it’s important to carefully assess each characteristic of the material in relation to how those attributes will best serve you, your team, and of course, your patients.
With the importance of performing pediatric dental procedures quickly in mind, a recent evaluation in Dental Product Shopper looked at durability, fit, ease of placement, practice benefits and overall satisfaction of Patterson Primary Molar Stainless Steel Crowns.
A break in the “normal” routine has presented clinicians with an opportunity to revisit common elective procedures that patients will request upon their return. If there’s a less invasive way to achieve highly esthetic results in the anterior, now is an ideal time to explore those techniques and revamp your material armamentarium.
As dental practices get comfortable operating in the “new normal,” the burden of wearing—and storing—extra PPE and time spent disinfecting operatories between patients continues to be a challenge. To meet these challenges, dentists are looking for new ways to save valuable chair time and streamline inventory management.
What if you could restore teeth by regrowing dentin and enamel? Although that technology remains the province of science fiction for now, bioactive restorative materials that do more than just take up space already do exist, and have for more than 40 years.
