NLS 2020 – Clinical Trial of 3S Exposure Composite Material
Advances in dental materials technology continue to influence the practice of restorative dentistry, giving dentists the option of placing restorations faster and more effectively than ever before.
As part of the Northern Lights Symposium 2020, Dr. Nathaniel Lawson, Assistant Professor in the Division of Biomaterials at the University of Alabama, walks through his ongoing clinical trial of the 3 Second Power Cure System from Ivoclar, a new composite that can be cured in 3 seconds. Dr. Lawson presents his 12 month and preliminary 24 month results and discusses the benefits and potential risks of using a closed system with a dedicated composite and curing light.

On The Northern Lights Symposium
The Northern Lights Symposium (NLS) is an international dental gathering focussed on the sciences and research in dental materials. The symposium was founded by Dr. Richard Price, Professor in the Department of Dental Clinical Sciences at Dalhousie University.
Since 2012, experts in dental restorative materials from North and South America, Australasia, the Middle East, and Europe have been convening at Dalhousie University, Halifax, to discuss advances in dental restorative materials and light curing technology.
This year, due to restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Northern Lights Symposium successfully pivoted to a 3-day online format, featuring six diverse presentations on cutting-edge topics:
