Restoration of mutilated and endodontically treated posterior teeth masterclass
Hands-on Courses
26 Oct 2023, 09:00 - 18:00 Zabeel House | Onyx Tower 2 | Dubai | UAE Area of interest: General Dentistry, Endodontics, Restorative Dentistry


Face-to-Face Training | Dubai (full day)


Minimal invasive adhesive dentistry became increasingly important during the last decade aiming for a greater preservation of healthy tooth tissue and proper restoration of both anatomical and functional relations of the offending tooth. This course will cover all modern principles of practicing additive adhesive dentistry. First, the instructor will elaborate in detail the importance of proper case assessment, how to restore mutilated and endo treated teeth with direct esthetic restorations and when to take the decision to shift to the indirect restoratives. It will also highlight the importance of integrating the additive approach to solve many restorative complexities including deep margins and extensive tooth structure loss and how to overcome these obstacles utilizing adhesive dentistry. 

This course will tackle all hot topics in modern dentistry including deep margin elevation, immediate dentin sealing, cavity design optimization and how to apply guided subtractive dentistry in tooth preparation. 

The course will cover all typologies of cavity preparation including inlays, onlays, overlays, vonlays and endocrowns, and elaborate when to shift to full coverage restorations. It will also discuss the added value of implementing digital dentistry in indirect restoratives and different material options used for indirect esthetic restorations. The course will provide systematic protocols for different surface treatments used for indirect esthetic restorations according to the selected material. It will also cover how to achieve perfect field isolation utilizing rubber dam and how to select the correct cementation protocol based on the typology of tooth preparation for more predictable and durable outcomes, and how to glimmer the final outcome using simplified finishing and polishing protocol. 

All presented material will be supported with high quality scientific evidence, photos and videos of HD quality and numerous clinical cases with different scenarios documented step by step to elaborate all presented scientific material.

In the hands-on part, the instructor will start, first with detailed demonstration showing step by step how to reach the desired outcome using simplified, predictable and repeatable protocols followed by the practical part done by the participants.
