LECTURES

 

1) WHEN AND HOW TO RESTORE POSTERIOR DENTITION

THROUGH DIRECT AND INDIRECT ADHESIVE SOLUTIONS

The evolution of restorative materials for direct and indirect options, together with adhesive techniques are meeting the requests of clinicians and patients, who ask less invasive therapies combined with highly esthetic results in posterior and anterior regions. The main goal of this lecture is to provide the clinician indications in the posterior area, for direct or indirect approaches (in which clinical context use composite, ceramic or zirconia) and the step-by-step protocols for direct and indirect (composite, ceramic and zirconia) restorations.

At the completion of the course, participants will be able to discuss:

  1. Direct Adhesive Composite Restorations

  2. Indirect Adhesive Composite Restorations

  3. Indirect Ceramic Adhesive Restorations

2) WORN DENTITION? DIRECT AND INDIRECT ADHESIVE MANAGEMENT THROUGH A NON-INVASIVE APPROACH

The range of restorative options, on worn dentition, is getting wider. Composite material is an option that can adequately respond to mechanical stress, offering natural aesthetics and an effective adhesion when treated with specific protocols. The main goal of this lecture is to give the clinician a simple, but effective guide to diagnose which kind of worn dentition we are dealing with in that specific case. The lecture will provide indications and protocols to treat severe worn dentition through a new no-prep approach increasing the VDO: “The Index technique.”  The lecture will also focus on when and how to bond on worn dentition, additive partial indirect restorations in composite and/or ceramic, depending on the clinical context or wear.

All the step-by-step protocols will be addressed through images and videos in order to have a clear overview of this technique through an analog and digital workflow.

At the completion of the course, participants will be able to discuss:

  1. How to diagnose worn dentition

  2. The indications and protocols for:

    • No-prep direct adhesive approach (the index technique)

    • Indirect adhesive approach through composite and ceramic restorations
