Operative Dentistry | Composite Resin & Glass Ionomer | NBDE Part II

In this video, we talk about adhesive dentistry, generations of bonding systems, composite resins, glass ionomers, and everything in between. Thanks for watching!


Lana Bissett:

Dr. Ryan, thank you so much for your concise efforts and detailed info. I am a veterinary dentistry resident getting ready for board examination and your foundations are priceless as we do not learn in an academic institution for most of us- we are mostly self taught for theory but use most of the same human text books with slight species variations. Thank you!!!


This is amazing Dr Ryan. Thank you for these superb interesting videos!!

Dr. Rasha Al-Edilbi:

I’m not preparing for the exam but I’v been looking for these information for so long, thank you so much Dr. Ryan!

Thank you Dr Ryan for all your efforts. I found during community service that I used these materials over the years and you make me stop and think about the importance of the development of these materials. For example I used Ketac silver or Cermet- ionomer as restortaive material and I found it was part of an effort to improve the filler of Glass Ionomer restortaion by adding metal alloy to improve the filler part and reinforce( first approach). Then the second approach was to improve the matrix not the filler by adding Di-methyacrylate monomer which you described in other series to have covalent crosslinking of the matrix through free radical by creating carbon- carbon bond in addition to primary ionic bond in GIC which is excellent in order to reduce the secondary bonds that is causing poor mechanical properties such as weakness, law modulus of elasticity, and law fracture toughness. I found also that the ionic bonds through acid -base reaction leads to release of calcium, aluminium,sodium,fluoride and silicate ions which is favorable for caries control.Thank you very much


So the best composite type is (nanohybrid) ?
And thank you for all of your videos they are really and truly helpful and without them I would’ve been lost in the dentistry world 😅
