Life Behind Bars: How to Identify a Biomimetic / Supercomposite

Jun 21, 2023



Presenter: Mr. Gregor Connell
Credits: 1 CEU
AGD Subject Code: 780
Webinar Begins: 6/21/23 7:00 PM ET
6:00 PM CT
4:00 PM PT

The goal of every composite restorative material developed by manufacturers, is to become the synthetic restorative that best mimics natural tooth structure and be the most Biomimetic available. Materials can claim to be the “best” in one or more performance categories or testing protocols. However, the best material theoretically – will be the one that is “best” in the greatest number of those testing categories or properties. This CE webinar will detail and analyze the various “key” testing protocols used in manufacturing for the testing of composite materials. We will then explain the in-vivo, clinical value, of those tests and associated bar graphs. Additionally, we will discuss how these various performance indicators, impact the long-term marginal integrity of restorations.

At the conclusion of this CE webinar, the attendee will have a better understanding of exactly what the Key Clinical Performance Indicators (KCPI) are for composite restorative materials. Armed with this information, a more informed decision can be made that will allow for the selection of a restorative that will offer the most optimal, long-term clinical outcome.
