ANDRAS FORSTER

Dr. Forster graduated in 2006. He completed a three year full time residency programme at the Szeged University and received a specialisation in Operative Dentistry and Prosthodontics in 2009.  He continued to teach operative dentistry at the Szeged University as an assistant professor for five more years. He has been studying, teaching and researching biomimetic methods since 2009 and is a pioneer of the biomimetic concept in his home country. In 2013 he transitioned to a private practice and is the leading restorative dentist at the world famous clinic of Dr. Istvan Urban in Budapest since 2016. In 2019 he got his Phd degree for the thesis  "Biomimetic Restoration of Endodontically Treated Posterior Teeth". In the publications of the thesis, he laid down the foundations of the new generation short fibre reinforced restorations of endodontically treated teeth. He is the author and co-author of several international publications. He is an international lecturer and has founded his own education platform, the Biomimetic Hub.

DIAGNOSIS AND BIOMIMETIC RESTORATION OF CRACKED TEETH
 

Managing cracked teeth is undoubtedly one of the most challenging situations we can face in Dentistry. We often search to treat caries but if the restoration fails to restore the biomechanical integrity of the original tooth, we most likely will face much bigger and more fatal consequences in cracks and fractures. To be able to confidently treat cracks, I will elaborate the biomechanics and histology of the natural tooth and explain the concepts of the BioRim and BioDome. After understanding these concepts one can mechanically analyse a restored tooth or a cavity and understand how to diagnose and treat each type of crack in an efficient way.  

At the completion of this lecture, participants will be familiarized with:

  • Learn about the histology and biomechanics of the natural tooth, including the BioRim and BioDome and the methods by which enamel, dentin and the DEC prevent crack propagation in nature.

  • Understand how to carry out mechanical analysis to assess for structural compromise, in relation to the underlying mechanics of the natural tooth.

  • Learn how to accurately diagnose cracks – including diagnostic methods and differentiation of crack types.

  • Understand how to successfully treat cracks using Biomimetic principles – including crack dissection of vertical and horizontal cracks with pulpal and non-pulpal involvement; and the Biomimetic restoration of cracked teeth.
