I am back from two days lecturing in Norwich last week and am hugely motivated by the level of knowledge and dedication that the dentists we taught showed. I was lecturing as usual with Dr Jansie van Rensburg (www.fibrebond.co.uk) on our special interest in fibre reinforced composite restorations. I have mentioned this topic before in the blog and it is one of the exciting growth areas in dentistry. We taught a hands on course to 25 dentists over the two days and they all found the techniques easy to use and very beneficial for their patients.
A fibre reinforced composite restoration is a strengthened white filling that can provide an excellent restoration for a tooth that is too broken down for a normal filling but does not need (or the owner cannot afford) a crown. Following on from the previous post about alternative choices to amalgam fillings, this technique is ideally placed to allow patients to replace their current large amalgam fillings with out having to go the expense of multiple crowns. (A FRC costs approximately £275, typically, compared to £495 for a crown.)
If you would like to know more about FRCs and how they might help you then please do not hesitate to contact the practice on 01580 752202 or firstname.lastname@example.org
