Kerr Webinar: Adhesive systems: Overview, Evaluation, Development Lorenzo Breschi, DDS, PhD
Aim of the presentation will be a critical review of the latest improvements of dental bonding systems. Chemical background and physical characteristics of the adhesives will be critically assayed to understand the clinical capabilities and the possible role of the clinician to obtain the highest bonding performances, in terms of improved bond strength, extended durability and reduced post-op sensitivity.

The lecture will also clarify the mechanisms that affect the stability of the adhesive interface over time, analyzing the role of different degrading phenomena synergistically contributing to degrade the hybrid layer.
Along with research background the lecture will provide clinical step-by-step procedures along with “tips and tricks” to achieve the highest clinical success in terms of aesthetic requirements, biomechanical properties of adhesive restorations, bond strength and stability of the adhesive interface over time.
