Minimally invasive restorations have been at the center of dental clinical practice for several years now. Two factors have significantly influenced the philosophy of tooth restoration. Initially, the clinically and scientifically established need for the greatest possible preservation of healthy tooth structure leads to highly conservative restorations. Secondly, the growing knowledge in the field of dental adhesives, aided by the existence of strong aesthetic materials, is able to meet the needs of posterior restorations.
In this seminar, there will be a theoretical presentation of the basic principles of restoration design with immediate and indirect materials for posterior teeth. Both analog and digital means of designing restorations will be analyzed, with the aim of achieving a predictable result with maximum tooth structure preservation.
This presentation and workshop will enable the clinician to focus on the characteristics and use of the most modern materials and techniques for the creation of immediate and indirect polymer restorations for posterior teeth. Although the philosophy of the layering techniques will be presented, the aim of the presentation will be the use of simplified techniques, providing optimal results. Intraoral scanning, digital tooth modification and the use of matrices made on printed models will help to simplify and expedite the restorative process.
In the extensive workshop, the participants will create matrices for the stamp technique. Subsequently, they will restore posterior teeth using the stamp technique as well as the incremental build-up. In addition, participants will prepare posterior teeth for various types of minimally invasive restorations (inlays, onlays, endo-crowns), and will be trained to cementation procedures.
Different marketing strategies for the integration of posterior composite as well as indirect polymer restorations in any clinical practice will be presented throughout the lecture.
In conclusion, the ultimate purpose of the seminar is to integrate modern methods and materials with knowledge and respect to the biology of the oral cavity.
- To recognize the basic principles of restoration design for minimally invasive restorations.
- To distinguish among modern materials and their use for specific immediate and indirect polymer restorations.
- To be able to create and restorations for posterior teeth using different restorative techniques
- To be able to prepare posterior teeth for inlays, onlays and endo-crowns.
- To use simplified methods for the cementation of indirect polymer restorations for posterior teeth.
