Adhesion in Dentistry

Dental adhesion is crucial for practicing minimally invasive dentistry and obtaining predictable and long-lasting restorative outcomes. In this course, Dr. Jeff Bonk provides an overview of dental adhesion with insight into dental cement. He discusses how dental materials and tooth structure interact, the structure of teeth, the chemistry of materials, and the strategies and techniques applied to achieve predictable results. Case examples, descriptions, and video demonstrations help enhance learning.

Learning objectives for this course:
– Define the critical components related to dental cement and adhesive restorative outcomes.
– Explain how adhesive technique strategies differ and provide insight into which adhesive strategy to choose for predictable outcomes.
– Describe how the chemistry of dental cement impacts the process and results.
– Discuss how interferences to adhesion may weaken or limit the longevity of adhered restorations.
– Observe case examples that exemplify adhesive techniques and how applying FGTP treatment planning creates predictability in outcomes.
