Fibre-Reinforced Composites and Deep Margin Elevation.

presented by:
Dr Haider Waleed

Dr Haider Waleed believes that fibres are the future of Adhesive Dentistry. In this presentation, he gives us an insight into the types of fibres we can use in dentistry, and their relevant roles in minimising the chance of microleakage and fracture. Dr Waleed gives us an insight into the roles of short fibre-reinforced composites such as Ever-X, and long fibres such as Ribbond. He then delves into another challenging area of Biomimetic Dentistry as his lecture continues with an overview of the background and science regarding Deep Margin Elevation. Dr Waleed walks us through several of his own clinical cases relating to the use of fibres and Deep Margin Elevation. This presentation gives an insight into clinical protocols, but has a strong focus on the relevant scientific literature, meaning you can stay up-to-date with the latest evidence surrounding these 2 key topics.

Aims & Objectives:

1) Understand the difference between short and long fibres and learn about their clinical applications.
2) Gain an insight into the evidence-base relating to fibre-reinforced composite restorations with a review of the relevant literature.
3) Gain an understanding of the concept of Deep Margin Elevation as an alternative treatment to surgical crown lengthening.
4) Learn how to carry out Deep Margin Elevation with a focus on relevant Biomimetic concepts, materials and equipment.

Lecture Duration: 1 hour 6 minutes.
