2024-05-16T10:31:33-04:00

2024 will mark the 30th anniversary of my father, Dr. Ronald Jordan’s passing and the inception of Clinician’s Choice® Dental Products.

Achieving Clinical Success Utilizing the DualForce™ Sectional Matrix System

2024-03-08T12:21:11-05:00

By Susan Prater-Kudlats, DMD

Although Class II restorations are routine amongst restorative dentists, they still present challenges when it comes to proper contour isolation, and marginal seal. Failure to achieve adequate contour can lead to food packing, gingival inflammation, and bone loss over time. The inability to ensure isolation can result in post-operative sensitivity; the marginal seal is essential to prevent recurrent decay.

An Ultra-conservative Path Leads to Unparalleled Patient Satisfaction

2024-03-08T12:03:25-05:00

By Ellen Katz, DDS

There is a feeling of immense satisfaction when you complete an esthetic case, and the patient cannot stop smiling because you have delivered exactly what they had envisioned. It can be challenging for a patient to communicate what it is that they do not like about their smile, leaving the possibility that the clinician does not completely understand what procedure to perform. It takes active listening, restating, rephrasing, and follow-up questioning to clarify what vague description of dislike for their smile may be.

By David Chan, DMD, AAACD

I believe there are two important concepts that should be embraced when considering direct restorative materials for anterior restorations: 1. Composite restorations can be indistinguishable from natural dentition and 2. Composite materials aren’t an inferior option to porcelain.

The Back-to-Back Class II Composite: A Predictable Workflow for One of the Most Common Clinical Procedures

2023-11-07T13:28:59-05:00

By Megan Shelton, DMD

While it may be one of the most common procedures in most restorative dental offices, the efficient placement of multiple Class II composites in a single quadrant can be technically demanding. Creating strong and natural proximal contours and contacts with the restoration of even a single Class II composite restoration can pose a challenge using traditional matrix systems.
