POSTPONED-Lecture Course
Fundamentals and Advances in Resin Composites,
Adhesive Systems and Cements

Sharukh S. Khajotia, B.D.S., M.S., Ph.D.

Resin composites, bonding agents and dental cements are constantly evolving areas of restorative dentistry. Dentists are faced with a vast array of restorative dental biomaterials, and are expected to separate advertising from reality. in this presentation, Dr. khajotia will differentiate among the various categories of resin composites, adhesive systems and resin luting cements from the perspective of critical Materials Science considerations and clinical use, without personal bias or commercial interests. During this presentation, Dr. khajotia will review the composition, manipulation and properties of various types of resin composites including nano-hybrid, nano-filled, flowable and bulk-filled categories. Dr. khajotia will then provide attendees with a unique insight into current research in his laboratory on the development of an antibacterial bonding system. He will also discuss interactions between oral biofilms and polymer-based dental biomaterials based on his research efforts. Tools will be provided to assist participants with reviewing and selecting restorative biomaterials.
