The Art of Aesthetics and Occlusion
Aesthetically pleasing restorations take a lot of effort to place them properly and also provide proper function with no postoperative problems. Modern materials are being developed every year that can simplify our restorative care when diagnosed and treatment planned properly. By performing a thorough diagnosis of the occlusion prior to treatment planning it will allow clinicians to avoid future complications and costly failures. The objective of this lecture is to present a predictable and systematic approach to occlusion and aesthetic restorations that will enable clinicians to achieve consistent quality results.
- Understand how to diagnose a case and sequence the treatment to have the best aesthetic and occlusal outcome
- Know when occlusal problems are present and how to address them so that the condition is not worsened
- Understand what types of restorative material to use based on their material properties
- Clinical cases will be presented and discussed along with some common problems and solutions
- Aesthetic crown and bridge techniques: To eliminate adjustments at cementation
- Fast and efficient temporaries every day
- Simplified impression techniques
- Proper cementation of indirect restorations to eliminate any complications
This program is a very comprehensive look at how to incorporate the best that dentistry has to offer into a practice with no complications.
