Lecture Title: "3-Pronged Approach to Material Selection"


Dental restorative materials are required to fulfil basic prerequisites including similarity to tooth structures in their mechanical, physical, and aesthetic properties. However recent developments in material science  and availability of newer restorative options has often left clinicians on cross roads when identifying the ideal material for the most suitable treatment approach that helps meets their patients’ aesthetic needs and expectations. Understanding direct restorative materials, their clinical applications and limitations play a vital role in the final treatment outcomes and longevity of the restorations placed.


The introduction of injectable composites has played an important role in restorative dentistry and revolutionized the capabilities of direct composites by providing a high level of aesthetics and reliability, . This presentation will help enhance the participants knowledge and understanding on the importance of material selection by introducing the 3-pronged approach, where the clinical applications of the  restorative material are evaluated using three perspectives: aesthetic characteristics, mechanical properties and bioactivity.


Key Learning Points

  • Better understanding on the role of material selection in long term restorative success with direct composites

  • Why Bioactive restoratives should be considered as the material of choice

  • Tips and Tricks to identifying the right material based on the type of restoration
