Delivery of indirect restorations is a major component of fixed prosthodontics and restorative dentistry. A basic understanding of the principles of tooth preparation and insight into the technology of a contemporary armamentarium are necessary for a full-mastery of this necessary skill. This presentation will outline the design and execution of various tooth preparation techniques that aid in the preservation, retention, structural durability, and biological compatibility of many laboratory-fabricated definitive restorations that ultimately provide long-term predictability and enhanced patient outcomes.
- Identify the most common causes of prosthetic/biologic failure related to tooth preparation techniques.
- Review the five principles which contribute to the efficacy and predictability of the indirect laboratory fabricated restorations.
- Recognize the intrinsic hard and soft-tissue conditions which require additional/auxiliary procedures and preparation design modifications.
- Describe the clinical instruments and equipment armamentarium that are available to aid efficient and predictable tooth preparation.
- Establish a restorative protocol utilizing the five basic tooth preparation principles to improve successful aesthetic and biological-based dental outcomes for the existing patient base.
