Abstract

The course will cover the necessary knowledge to master anterior and posterior direct techniques. First, the participants will evaluate the model and plan how to prepare the anterior teeth. Afterwards, they will prepare the teeth and then they will have to restore them with different techniques, depending on the indication. From classic wedge and mylar strips use to more sophisticated techniques like the FEM technique, the pulling and reverse pulling to the injection technique. The complete range of indication for composites is going to be covered.

In the beginning, the hands-on will start quickly with simple class III to IV, V as the foundation. Then, more modern indications like direct veneers, peg laterals and diastema closures will be done. The second day will start with complex cases that present stains or special optical challenges. Then, the direct injection technique will be presented. How to build a proper translucent matrix will be shown. In the posterior region, severely worn dentition will be simulated and restored with the “Crystal Shell” technique. Simple monochromatic and multilayer polychromatic approaches are going to be shown. The advantages of the digital approach are going to be shown. CAD-CAM will be merged with the composite world

How to finish and polish is going to be demonstrated in detail. 

All the steps will be shown by the instructor with an HD camera with high magnification for an explanation of all the details. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the potential, advantages and disadvantages of direct composites
  2. Understand how to differentiate which cases are suitable or not for the injection technique
  3. Demonstrate how to prepare teeth previous to composites 
  4. Demonstrate how to make correctly all kind of indications for direct restorations
  5. Demonstrate how to build a matrix, inject the composite and cure it.
  6. Demonstrate the classic analog and the digital modification for posterior as well as for anterior teeth.
  7. Explain the simple way, the layering modification and the “Crystal Shell” technique.
