The Very Dental Podcast Network

What if seeing posterior composites on your schedule gave you the same warm, fuzzy feeling as a crown prep on #14? We make no promises, but the Bioclear method can help! We pick up where we left off with Dr. David Clark talking about the Bioclear system, specifically the "Diamond Wedge." Since David is a dentist, he spent a bunch of years addressing problems that dentists have run into with posterior composites and designed solutions that everyday restorative dentists can use to take the drudgery out of direct restorations! You'll hear David discuss the problem of "back to back" composites and his tricks to avoid poor contacts as well as how to choose wedge sizes and separation rings for regular cases. Finally, David and Jeremy discuss how the "Rock Star Polish" and how they invented Magic Mix to make the polishing process simple and consistent. Honestly...if you hear one thing in episode 124 it's trying out Magic Mix. Man is that stuff awesome!

Jason and Alan regroup in the second half of the episode to be their very own Brain Trust. Some stuff they talk about:

  • office holiday parties
  • learning to scan: the first few days with an intraoral scanner
  • experience with Bioclear Magic Mix
  • Why some patients are just clinically easier than others and what to do about it
  • putting together a team of specialists to work with

Cosmedent has invented a new instrument specific to anterior composite placement. The coolest thing about it is that the instrument curves the way an anterior tooth curves! Placing and shaping composite in the anterior has never been easier. You need to check out the CASI (pronounced "Kassie.")
