Resin Composites and Tooth Wear

Resin composite materials have acquired a prominent position amongst direct restorative materials for a wide range of clinical situations including rehabilitation of the worn dentition. Tooth wear has become a significant dental problem, it is estimated that the prevalence of erosive tooth wear in permanent teeth of children and adolescents is 30.4%. Prevention is key in management of tooth wear however restorative rehabilitation may also be required. Modern resin composite materials provide a conservative, minimally invasive approach for management of tooth wear with acceptable survival and long term maintenance requirements. Understanding the aetiology and treatment planning strategies of tooth wear patients using direct composite restorations is key achieve predictable outcomes.

Dr Al-Taie is a Clinical Lecturer/Speciality Registrar in Restorative Dentistry at the Leeds Dental Hospital. She completed her MSc with distinction and PhD at Leeds. For her PhD she developed novel nano-hybride dental composite with anticaries properties.

Dr. Mile Churlinov

Single Session Treatment

Patient centred approach

Single-visit root canal treatment, very well accepted by the patients as being cost and time effective is a real patient-centred approach (Maddalena Manfredi et al. 2016). Single- visit treatment reduces the risk of interappointment infection and resulted in fewer flare-ups (Yingying Su et al. 2011). It is however a technique and instruments-sensitive concept and it depends of clinician ability to isolate the working field, shape, clean and obturate the root canal space in a single visit. If possible, restoration should be finished in the same session, providing complete treatment.

Although two-visit protocol with an inter-appointment medication with calcium hydroxide resulted in improved microbiological status of the root canal system when compared with a single-visit protocol (Jorge Vera et al. 2012 ), it still remains a controversial issue as some studies revealed that it has limited effectiveness in eliminating bacteria from the root canal human teeth when assessed by culture techniques (Sathorn et al. 2007) and does not eliminate the entire spectrum of microorganisms (de Souza et al. 2005).

Finally, there is no strong scientific evidence to favour the single-visit or the multiple-visit root canal treatment, neither one can prevent 100% of short- and long-term complications (Figini Lara et al. 2008), therefore, it is a critical to rationalize and prioritize evidence when comparing the single and multiple-visit treatment to make feasible evidence-based decision for day-to-day practice. This means that the clinician needs to be aware of how to develop an evidence-based rationale to shape the clinical decision-making process (De-Deus et al. 2016).


Started his dental journey by graduating as a dental technician in 2004 in Bitola- Macedonia. Dr. Churlinov's education continues in 2010 where he graduated Dental Medicine at the Medical University of Plovdiv- Bulgaria, with a masters degree. Since 2013 he works as a full time endodontist in one of Sofia's leading clinic.    In 2015 Dr. Mile Churlinov started his online project ‘Endorestodontics’ which is followed by more than 4000 thousand people all over the World. He has taken a keen interest in endo-restorative treatment and continues to lead innovation in the field of "Endorestodontics" by having publications in peer review journals such as Dental Traumatology as well as online research magazines like Dentaltown, Hungarian Endodontic Journal and other international endodontic journals. He is active member of International Association of Dental traumatology guide and IADT. Since 2017 he is part Of Coltene  opinion leaders.

Jackie Dorst

Sterilization Tune-Up

Every day you clean, package and sterilize instruments and equipment to ensure patient safety.  Surfaces and technology equipment must be cleaned and disinfected after each patient appointment.  All sterilization and disinfection procedures must adhere to current regulations and standards.  Staying on schedule while practicing correct sterilization and infection control is an on-going challenge for busy dental practices.

Chaos can reign in the sterilization room when there is an inadequate inventory of instruments, cassettes and handpieces for the “through put time” required for proper cleaning and sterilization.  Inefficient cleaning and sterilization equipment or inefficient sterilization room layout & cabinet designs slow down the dental team and compromise the sterilization process.

Jackie Dorst’s webinar updates dental practices on the latest sterilization standards to ensure that your practice meets the “Standard of Care” for instrument reprocessing.

The clinical team often struggles with inefficient systems and the doctor is not aware of the sterilization room chaos!  Just as in the show, the Undercover Boss’ difficulties highlight changes needed to improve instrument sterilization.  Jackie Dorst will provide solutions to eliminate sterilization bottlenecks and improve efficiency for your dental practice.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe “Closed Door” sterilization
  • Distinguish between internal and external indicators
  • Demonstrate correct sterile pouch seal
  • List validation methods & records for sterilization process

Jackie Dorst speaks, writes and consults on dental instrument sterilization, infection prevention and OSHA safety.  Her experience in the dental profession, business, public speaking and research contribute to her energetic seminars based on scientific information applied to clinical effectiveness and efficiency.

She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology from the University of Georgia and, as an undergraduate, served as a Research Assistant in Medical Mycology. Jackie is a Dental Hygiene graduate of Clayton State University.

Composite – Its Many Usages

Replacing tooth structure with composite is the ideal when holding to the truths of biomimetic dentistry. Our objective as cosmetic dentist is to replace missing, defective or decayed teeth in the most conservative fashion.  Composite is incredibly versatile and can be used in anterior and posterior clinical situations. The esthetic and functional outcome is uncompromised when following Dr. LeSage’s four parameters.  The anterior system includes a starburst bevel, putty matrix, layering of composite, and finishing and polishing. See the possibilities of composite usage - it will be an eye opening experience!


  1. Attain restorations that match the tooth in color and contour.
  2. Watch as Dr. LeSage shows his simple four parameter system 
  3. Tips for creating seamless, predictable and long lasting composite restorations
