Nuevos conceptos en operatoria dental

Eduardo Julio Lanata


Los odontólogos ocupan una importante cantidad de horas de su consulta realizando y reemplazando restauraciones, por lo tanto algo estamos haciendo mal. Este artículo sintetiza los cambios de la Operatoria Dental en la última década: el diagnóstico, la mínima invasión y la intervención sin invasión, el tratamiento de caries proximales y el protocolo a seguir al aplicar los sistemas adhesivos.
