The presentation is entitled:
New Biologic Materials For Pulpal Vitality
Save More Teeth Every Day
Vital pulp therapy may be broadly defined as any aspect of restorative dental treatment intended to minimize trauma to the dental pulp.
Tonight’s presenter will describe techniques for placement in direct restorative protocols, along with the use of TheraCal LC in trauma. The use of bioactive materials for pulpotomies of primary teeth will be shown, along with techniques for their final restoration.
The presentation includes a brief history of the development of calcium silicates as they are now used in dentistry, with further elucidation on our Presenter’s personal participation in writing that history.
