    NEW LIVE MEMBERS SEMINAR: Composite Mastery Materials and Technique Update for 2025 
    With Dr. Vargas And Dr. Margeas
    This online seminar will be presented by Dr. Bob Margeas and Dr. Marcos Vargas on Saturday, December 7, 2024 from 10:00am to 3:00pm Eastern.  
     
    There are many new dental materials introduced each year. During this online seminar Bob and Marcos will teach about new products and materials for members to consider adding in 2025. This seminar will include an update of new techniques in composite dentistry and provide curriculum updates to the core CMO modules. 
      NEW LIVE MEMBERS WEBINAR: Clinical and science-based elements of lithium disilicate and zirconia restorations… What every clinician must know with Dr. Taiseer Sulaiman
      We realize this is not exactly a composite topic but it is an important topic in restorative dentistry and Bob and Marcos wanted to schedule this for CMO members.

      There is a scarcity of evidence-based research supporting the use of contemporary ceramics in dental practices today. Poor clinical trials eventually lead to poor systematic reviews, and load to failure laboratory tests have little clinical relevance. This leaves clinicians in doubt about which ceramic restorative material is best for their patients. 

      The presentation will focus on lithium disilicate and monolithic zirconia, including the various generations. This will include a discussion of mechanical and optical properties, wear of natural antagonists, as well as ceramic adjustment, finishing, and polishing. A series of new retrospective studies will also be introduced to evaluate the survival of these ceramics.

      During this webinar CMO members will learn:
      1. Understand the mechanical (including wear characteristics) and optical properties of lithium disilicate and zirconia materials, as well as their implications for clinical practice
      2. Determine the best preparation design and cementation procedure for each ceramic material.
      3. Evaluate the projected clinical success of these two materials, based on the most current research.
        NEW LIVE MEMBERS WEBINAR:

        Module Four: Managing Black Triangles and Closing Diastemas
        Closing diastemas with composite resin  is a challenge for all of us. Post orthodontic cases are very prevalent due to a tooth size discrepancy. These require minimally invasive techniques due to the age of the patient. Obtaining proper proximal and gingival contour, adequate width, good proximal contact and blending of the composite resin into tooth structure are of outmost importance for longevity and esthetics. 

        This module will present a detailed step-by-step technique to close midline and other anterior diastemas. It will teach shade selection and very importantly opacity selection, tooth preparation, bonding, matrices, layering, “pull through techniques” and contouring and polishing.
