There is nothing more frustrating for a clinician than to have a patient call to complain about post-operative sensitivity, or that food is now
getting stuck between my teeth and it’s hurting my gums. Not only can this cause a loss of trust or add to the existing fear that some people have of dentists but it can also cause the loss of a patient and/or patient’s family. Some only consider failure as the loss or breakdown of a restoration. We need to start considering sensitivity to be a failure as well! Is the cause of this sensitivity product related? Technique related? Both? This program will not only discuss the sectional matrix systems that will provide tight anatomical contacts which are resistant to
fracture, but will also explore the restorative techniques and materials that can virtually eliminate post-operative sensitivity.
