Comprehensive, Conservative, and Predicable Adhesive Solutions in Complex Fixed Prosthodontic Rehabilitations
Time: 9:00 AM, February 25, 2022
Speaker: Dr. Avishai Sadan
With a conservative approach in mind, clinicians should be able to provide patients with minimally-invasive, functional, highly-esthetic, and long-lasting solutions.
These solutions should take into consideration patient needs and desires, functional issues, available materials, and clinical approaches.
Novel conservative restorative techniques are able to combine a variety of treatment modalities for a large range of clinical situations including some that until recently were not considered possible. This presentation provides a systematic and scientific approach for selecting esthetic treatment modalities based on original research data with special emphasis on techniques and new materials design and selection. The presentation will also focus on showcasing a host of customized solutions for comprehensive clinical situations that involve significant alterations of key clinical parameters such as VDO, occlusal schemes, interarch relations, etc. As predictable and advanced as these solutions are, they are not risk free; thus, failures and complications are still a clinical reality. Key risk factors will be discussed with the understanding that complex clinical rehabilitations have a much higher likelihood of complications and failures that have to be factored in prior to initiation of treatment.
At the end of the presentation attendees will be able to: 1) Understand challenges related establishing a stable adhesive interface to ceramic and composite based material 2) Choose restorative solutions that are age appropriate 3) Understand the advantages and limitation of ceramic vs contemporary resin composite CAD/CAM solutions
