"Adhesion Dentistry Incorporates Biomimetics"  8 CEU's

with Dr. Raymond Bertolotti

Adhesion Dentistry Incorporates Biomimetics:

  • Flat, adhesion retained onlays on a biobase is a major paradigm shift, leading to easier and far better dentistry
  • Elevation of the margins is superior to extending indirect restorations subgingivally
  • Mechanical retention leads to post-op sensitivity.
  • Why immediate dentin sealing (IDS) increases restoration strength in addition to stopping sensitivity 100%.
  • Avoid crowns to increase the chance of avoiding endodontics.
  • Avoiding bond failure when using CAD-CAM
  • The indications for zirconia crowns: Sorry, there are none.
  • Ceramic survival data from over 30 years makes the best choices clear.
  • CoJet / SilJet adhesion to all hard surfaces, a great simplification.
  • Bonding to non HF-etchable ceramics by several methods.
  • Some popular self-etching cements prove to be very poor choices.
  • Making intelligent compromises:  What is acceptable?

Dr. Raymond Bertolotti is perhaps best known for introducing "total etch"  to North America in 1984. He has been credited as the guru who, in 1985, coined the phrase "adhesion dentistry".  Dr. Bertolotti first used "Adhesion Dentistry" when he retitled his "Cosmetic Dentistry" seminar, reflecting the true nature of what he was using to achieve aesthetic results.

Dr. Bertolotti received his D.D.S. degree from the University of California, San Francisco, after working as a Ph.D. metallurgical and ceramic engineer at Sandia National Laboratories. He is currently on faculty at Warwick University (UK) and guest lectures at Loma Linda University. He conducts a private practice in California. Most of his private practice is involved with ozone, conservative esthetic techniques and adhesion dentistry.
