Learn how to incorporate minimally invasive restorative dentistry techniques into your practice for maximum success.  

This comprehensive, evidence-based, hands-on workshop offers clear, easily understood protocols for adopting a minimally invasive approach to restorative treatments. It has been designed for dentists to develop and enhance their clinical skills to a minimum intervention, preventive patient-centred approach.

Understand the latest minimally invasive remineralising and tooth-preserving technologies, adhesive restorative materials and techniques to clean, protect, restore and maintain dental disease aesthetically, long-term and effectively. Hands-on experience includes exercises such as surface sealing and posterior restorative techniques, using a range of restorative materials.  

You will explore -

Minimally invasive techniques/procedures, including:

  • AIRFLOW prior to surface protection and surface sealing and prior to fissure protection and fissure sealing
  • Tooth surface cleaning and preparation prior to restorative management
  • Enhancing adhesive bonding and cementation
  • Minimal invasive management of root surface lesions
  • Occlusal anatomy replication techniques

Types of dental problems to manage, including:

  • Plaque identification and assessment in relation to examination and patient risk assessment
  • patient risk groups and minimal invasive approaches for the very young, the elderly, special-needs and special-care patients, including tooth protection during orthodontics
  • the oral environments and addressing demineralisation/remineralisation issues
  • management of exposed root surfaces
  • atraumatic and minimally invasive restorative management of paediatric and geriatric patients
  • improving bonding and adhesion on compromised tooth surfaces

Minimally invasive dentistry techniques, including:

  • selection and use of fluorides in patient management, glass-ionomer cements in restorative management
  • implications and use of injectable composite resins in minimally invasive dentistry
  • tooth anatomy replication using translucent silicone templates (ExaClear)
  • maintenance and minimally invasive repair of restorations
