Restoring The Endodontically-Treated Tooth With The Bioclear Method

Optimizing Dental Excellence: Creating Direct Restorative Workflows

Guest Instructor: Kerry Lepicek & Beth Parkes

Digital dentistry technologies and techniques have evolved substantially in recent years, allowing for more complex in-office workflows. In this course, Dr. Jennifer Bell will review scenarios where the use of a digital workflow expedites the delivery of direct anterior restorations in a more predictable and efficient way. Dr. Jennifer Bell will explain the process step by step, featuring multiple clinical cases with direct restorative applications.  Each of the elements will be presented with a theory-based approach, then evolving to a practical activity to demonstrate the techniques. The comprehensive live demonstration covers initial scanning protocol, exocad restoration design, 3D printing, and direct injected molded restorations made in the mouth with flowable composite.
