Practical Pearls for Clinical Use: A Day with Terry Donovan
Monday, Nov. 9, 2020
Presented by Terence E. Donovan, DDS
The contemporary restorative dentist has an increasing evidence base to consult when making both treatment planning and therapeutic decisions. However, there are numerous areas of controversy where the evidence does not provide a clear answer without interpretation. This course will discuss several controversial topics related to restorative dentistry and attempt to provide guidance based on the best available evidence. Discussion topics will include an evaluation of current ceramic materials, and diagnosis and management of dental erosion. This course will cover current controversies in restorative dentistry such as amalgam vs. composite resin, tooth reinforcement with adhesive materials, contemporary cement selection, etiology and management of non-carious cervical lesions, bonding of zirconia restorations, direct pulp capping (MTA vs. calcium hydroxide), metal vs. flexible endodontic dowels, implants vs. endodontics, cemented vs. screw-retained implant supported restorations, cordless gingival displacement, occlusal vertical dimension, and silver diamine fluoride.
Define the differences in presenting signs of intrinsic and extrinsic erosion
Understand which ceramic systems work and where they should be used
Explain when and how NCCLs should be restored

Describe when to use an endodontic post and what type of post to use
Identify the important role silver diamine fluoride will play in the management of root caries
