Simplifying composite restorations

Sabiha Bunek - Final

From the desk of
Dr. Sabiha Bunek, Editor-in-Chief

THE DENTAL ADVISOR team just got back from the Chicago Dental Society’s Midwinter Meeting, where we saw countless new and innovative products. The sheer volume of products currently on the market is enough to overwhelm even the most experienced clinicians. The variety of different resin composites in particular marks one of the most significant changes in technology, as it has resulted in the creation of several categories and sub-categories of composites, which increase the complexity of choosing an appropriate product for a given application.

The goal of this issue is to simplify both the product selection process and the composite procedure from start to finish. We explain new terms and technology, recommending products evaluated by THE DENTAL ADVISOR, and offering clinical tips for use for both anterior and posterior restorations. Finishing and polishing and LED light curing units are discussed as well. I hope you find this information useful in your daily practice.

This issue is my personal favorite because it illustrates our new approach to presenting information. You can explore each step of resin composite procedures in one concise issue. As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions. You can reach me at Thank you for your continued support and reading!
