ADA CE Online is offering a new course on posterior resin restorations.

In Top Ten Tips For Enhancing Success With Posterior Resins, Dr. Jeffrey Galler discusses how to overcome some of the common problems associated with posterior resins and provides useful tips on enhancing success with this treatment modality.

"Dentists are becoming increasingly aware that many of today’s patients desire a dentist who can competently restore posterior teeth with resins," said Dr. Galler, a general dentist and an international lecturer who has written more than 50 articles in dental journals. "A dentist in a successful, contemporary practice must be able to provide this service efficiently, routinely and predictably."

He cites post-op sensitivity, open contact points and recurrent decay as some of the common problems associated with placing posterior resins. His lecture, which provides 2 units of CE upon successful completion, includes a discussion of cavity disinfectants, resin-modified glass ionomers, proper light curing, newer matrix systems and one-step adhesives.

"It is my hope that dentists will learn how to overcome some of the difficulties associated with posterior resins, how to incorporate some of these techniques in their practices and feel more confident about providing predictably successful posterior resin restorations," Dr. Galler said.

ADA CE Online is designed for general dentists, specialists and dental team members. It features a comprehensive library of courses, automated grading and secure credit card payment, and special pricing is available to ADA members.
