Hinman Lectureship Series
October 25, 2014 - 8:00 AM - 4:15 PM
As health care professionals our pre-eminent desire is to treat our patients with the most contemporary, yet proven procedures and materials. Dentists and dental laboratory technicians have watched as countless of the “latest and greatest” techniques and materials come to the forefront, usually amidst a flurry of interest and advertising hype, only to see the failure of many of these systems. Add to this fact that there is a constant barrage of new products being introduced to our profession, there has never been a time when the information we receive, even in many educational venues, has been so commercially biased. Considering all of these factors, one of our greatest challenges becomes deciding when, or if, we should incorporate new restorative options into our practices.

7:30 a.m. Registration and Continental Breakfast
8 a.m. Welcome and Introduction to Course
– Dr. Barry D. Hammond
8:15 a.m. “A Look at New Restorative Materials through the
Lens of Proven Principles”
In this presentation we will pursue a completely
unbiased approach of evaluating new materials and
technologies using current evidence and proven
principles as our litmus test of when, where, and
if we should introduce them into our practices.
We will examine what the contemporary ceramic
materials may offer in the way of conservative
preparations, esthetics, efficiency, accuracy, and
even predictability. We will explore how the various
materials and technologies discussed may modify
our concepts of treatment planning and ideal
preparation design, as well as when traditional
restorations are still the best choice.
1 p.m. “Bonded Ceramic Restorations, Minus the Hype”
In this presentation we will discuss the practical,
real-world indications for bonded restorations
based on the defects that exist in the tooth and
the patient’s risk factors. We will examine the
preparation details critical for anterior and posterior
bonded ceramic restorations. These preparation
designs vary with the planned restorative material,
the luting resin system that will be utilized, the
character of the dental substrate to which they will
be bonded, and perhaps, most importantly, a clear
vision of risks vs. benefits based on the possible
modes of failure of the restoration. We will also
review veneer provisionalization techniques and
bonding procedures, as well as the various resin
cement systems available.
