Accurate information about the biological and mechanical properties of teeth and dental restorative materials may be hard to find due to opinion and marketing efforts, yet these remain fundamental to the success of our dentistry and the happiness of our patients. In Biomechanics, Dr. Kois shares independent research and evidence based guidelines to understand caries detection, removal and prevention; the modes and etiology of tooth structure loss; tooth preparation and design principles utilizing proven dental materials and specific protocols for their use and important laboratory protocols to achieve predictable results. Biomechanics Biomechanics Biomechanics Biomechanics This five day, comprehensive course will give you the power to make educated decisions about materials options and their specific protocols. You will understand how and when to utilize effective caries management regimens in challenging situations, and you will gain great clarity in making clinical decisions about when to restore and retain individual teeth, and when to remove them.
