DHAA NSW: Fibre Reinforced Composite Resin splints, retainers and bridges

October 5, 2019 @ 13:00 - 16:00

DHAA NSW invites you to join us for a hands-on work shop on Fibre Reinforced Composite Resin for splinting, bridges and retainers. This event is limited to 20 participants.

About this event
This course will provide clinical information and a ‘hands-on’ experience with resin impregnated fibre reinforced materials combined with a range of aesthetic and high strength composite resins. Techniques for creating aesthetic anterior fibre reinforced bridges will be discussed and demonstrated as well as the use of these bridges for splinting mobile teeth and fixed ortho retainers.

Participants will be able to experience using the fibres.

Topics include:

  • Fibre reinforced composites – material types and indications for use
  • Case selection, treatment options and clinical techniques
  • Using aesthetic composites and layering anterior fibre reinforced bridges
  • Hands on construction techniques for a Perio splint and an anterior bridge only
  • Longevity and maintenance
  • Increase your scope of practice whilst delivering better oral health outcomes for your patient.

These products and techniques when adopted have the potential to create new business and encourage recall appointments.
