Dental materials - what works where in the COVID-19 era?
A recording of a webinar that took place on Thursday 26 November 2020. *Available on-demand until Monday 18 January 2021*
This webinar will consider previously “normal” methods of restorative treatment, which have involved the use of a turbine (with its' associated aerosol), that have been thrown into disarray by the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic.
This webinar will explore treatments which are possible without the use of an aerosol, using the variety of adhesive techniques at our disposal. It will also explore factors which may affect restoration survival. The results for survival will be taken from evaluations carried out in general dental practice on resin composite restorations on posterior teeth, and resin composite restorations in anterior teeth used in treatment of tooth wear.
• Understand the value of choosing the correct, high-quality material for a given clinical situation
• Outline the latest information on bonding to dentine and the survival of resin composite materials
• Evaluate which restoration types may adversely affect the lifespan of the restored tooth
• Understand that longevity of the restored tooth, as opposed to merely the survival of the restoration, is most important.

About the speaker
Trevor BurkeDDS, MSc, MDS, MGDS, FDS RCS (Edin), FDS RCS (Eng.), FFGDP(UK), FADM
Trevor Burke graduated from Queens University in Belfast. Following academic appointments in Belfast and Manchester, he worked in general dental practice in Manchester for 22 years, whilst also working in restorative dentistry at the University of Manchester. He was Professor of Primary Dental Care at the University of Birmingham and Honorary Consultant in Restorative Dentistry from 2000 to 2020.
Trevor is (co)author of 370 papers in peer-reviewed journals and three books. He has been awarded over 80 research grants.
His main research interests include properties and applications of tooth-colored restorative materials, and the translation of in vitro research on dental materials into the clinical situation. In this regard, he co-ordinates the work of the PREP (Product Research and Evaluation by Practitioners) Panel, established in 1993, a group of dentists who carry out research in their practices. This group, which has now completed over 70 evaluations of materials and techniques, presently has 30 members.
He is also the Editorial Director of the journal Dental Update. His most recent research has involved the interrogation of a 10 million restoration dataset which he helped establish, in which the restorations are followed for 16 years, enabling not only the survival of the restoration to be assessed, but also the survival of the restored tooth, arguably the more important criterion.
