A Geeky Discussion on Adhesive Onlays
3 months ago
Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics
I have a quadrant isolated. Classic FM is playing in the background. The teeth are bone dry. I pick up the air abrasion unit and begin my adhesive protocol. I am well and truly in my happy place!
This week we're joined by 'Dr Ash Lifts' - a wonderful, reflective practitioner from The States. We had a great time discussing cusp preservation to material choices for onlays.
