How to Prevent Knit Lines in Your Composite

 As most of you know, I have two full time jobs.  The first is being a general dentist.  I see patients four days per week about 8 hours per day.

My second job is Chief Dental Editor & Technology Editor for Dental Products Report.  My second job gives me the opportunity to see a lot of really great emerging technologies and clinical breakthroughs.  

One of the really incredible things that I love about my "second" job is the fact that I get to meet and become friends with some really amazing people.  My post today is going to be short, because the meat of this post is going to be in the link to the video below.

One of the people that I have been fortunate to meet in my career is Dr. Richard Price.  I had heard his name a lot before I had a chance to meet him.  He is a world renowned expert in curing lights, curing light technologies, and the physics of bonded dental materials.  A few years back we happened to bump into each other at a meeting and we struck up a friendship.  This lead to us swapping emails and I'm lucky enough that Richard gives me insights into his work from time to time.  Richard is an expert and when he talks I have found that it is important to listen.

Today's post is about how to eliminate "knit" lines in composites.  This is great info for any dentist that is doing adhesive composite dentistry.  Head over to YouTube and see what Richard has for you.  It is less than a 4 minute video, but it will make a lot of difference to your restorations.
