Posterior Bio-Esthetic Restorations: Bio-mechanics and functional concepts in synergy
This courses covers essential knowledge and clinical expertise about tooth bio-mechanics and its impact on material & clinical protocol selection. Techniques for direct, semidirect and indirect techniques using either composite or ceramics will be presented and practised, with a special focus on the CTS (Cracked-Tooth-Syndrom) and non-vital teeth.
1. Tooth colored restorations & bio-mechanics: general indications & considerations 2. Material choice: conventional composites, bulk-filling products, ceramics, etc... 3. Direct restorations (with update on bulk & simplified filling techniques) 4. Tooth preparation for semi- and Indirect techniques 5. Cervical margin relocation & Cavity Design Optimization 6. Adhesive and luting procedures for the tooth and restorations 7. The Cracked Tooth Syndrome & Non-Vital tooth configurations
