Full-mouth Adhesive Rehabilitations of Patients with Tooth Wear: New Prosthetic Materials and Latest Fabrication Techniques
Time: 4:15 PM, February 23, 2024
Speaker: Dr. Irena Sailer
This dental lecture will cover the latest advances in full-mouth adhesive rehabilitations for patients with tooth wear. The lecture will explore the use of defect oriented preparations and adhesive cementation techniques, which have revolutionized the field of restorative dentistry. Defect oriented preparations involve the removal of only the defective or damaged parts of a tooth, rather than the entire tooth structure. This technique allows for more conservative and minimally invasive treatments, which is especially important in patients with tooth wear. Attendees will also learn about the latest innovations in prosthetic materials, which play a critical role in full-mouth rehabilitations. New materials such as zirconia, lithium disilicate, and resin composites have vastly improved the strength and esthetics of dental restorations. The advantages and disadvantages of these materials will be discussed and insights into their appropriate use in clinical situations with wear will be provided.
