Salvaging hopeless teeth? Doing 5 surface fillings? Restoring a tooth broken to the gumline? These are not the typical subjects of most dental articles or courses. However, for myself and many dentists I speak with, they are a daily reality that we face. Even when it's simply a quadrant of back to back teeth with proximal decay, it can be a very stressful procedure without a reliable system for how to approach them. Through many of my own struggles with these cases and by using pearls learned from other clinicians, I eventually developed an approach that greatly reduced my stress in these situations and allowed me to do them efficiently. In this course, I discuss the techniques and instruments I use in these cases and how to select which approach to use. We' also explore the indications for "outside of the box" techniques such as direct resin matrices, teflon wedges, partial extraction therapy.

Great to see a dentist who takes the time to do conservative yet quality dentistry, especially for those who cannot afford crowns. Some real helpful ideas I am excited to try on Monday morning.
