The treatment of teeth with prosthodontic techniques has changed considerably over the last few years.
Traditional restorative protocols are considerably invasive and in most cases compromise dental structure, which often leads to loss of dental vitality and resistance. Nowadays, with the availabilty of new improved restoration materials, clinicians can approach prosthetic rehabilitation in less invasive ways, especially in cases of severely worn teeth.
For instance, localized and/or generalized wear can be determined by attrition, chemical erosion and abrasion. In the rehabilitation, damage of these cases can be minimized through the addition of very thin layers of ceramic/composite restorations that are bonded over the tooth structure. In most occasions, this procedure allows the dentist to avoid the need of anesthesia. In extensive cases where one or two arches are involved, it is fundamental to respect the basic functional concept of rehabilitating the patient in centric relation (C.R.) and altering the vertical dimension of occlusion (V.D.O.) in order to minimize tooth reduction.
In this program Dr Mauro Fradeani will discuss the above points extensively and provide substantial research and case study examples as well as treatment planning. In addition various kinds of tooth preparations for veneers, full veneers, buccal-occlusal veneers, table tops, onlays and overlays will be discussed.
