Preparations and Techniques for Modern Direct Adhesive Restorations

Dr. Jihyon Kim DDS

A more comprehensive understanding of preparation design and adhesive techniques can elevate direct composite restorations to be a more satisfying and successful aspect of your clinical practice.

Direct composite restorations are commonly viewed as “Bread and Butter” dentistry. As a first intervention procedure, they can set the stage for the long-term health, function, and survival of the tooth. Though more technique sensitive, trust in dental adhesion over traditional mechanical retention allows for maximum conservation of tooth structure. Understanding preparation design and adhesive techniques can elevate this “basic” procedure to a long lasting and satisfying foundational practice.

Learning Objectives include:

  • Demystify bond strength to different tooth substrates.
  • Understand cavity design and its impact on structural integrity.
  • Explore selective caries removal versus complete removal to preserve pulp health.
