Course Description

This one-hour presentation will discuss a novel indirect/direct injection technique that adds a new dimension to the restorative process. Over the past eleven years, Dr. Terry has continued to develop a noninvasive adhesive technique that adds a new dimension to restorative and esthetic dentistry. This inverse injection composite layering technique provides a precise and predictable method for translating a diagnostic wax-up or a pre-existing diagnostic model into composite restorations by mixing various hues and opacities of highly filled flowable materials. There are a myriad of applications for this technique using an Adhesive Design Concept described in Dr. Terry’s latest book “Restoring with Flowables.”

Learning Objectives

  • Discover a predictable and precise method for developing anterior composite veneers.
  • Understand and explore the significance of color mixing for creating polychromatic lifelike restorations.
  • Appreciate the myriad of applications of the injectable technique and how an improved biomaterial and this revolutionary technique can enhance patient communication and your practice of dentistry.

It is strongly suggested that each participant review Chapter 3 and 8 of Esthetic & Restorative Dentistry: Material Selection & Technique 3rd Edition and Restoring with Flowables as a precursor to this presentation.
