Program SummaryThere is no larger frustration than complications or failures in our treatment. When we combine the narratives "art and science", one must think of the skill set necessary to fabricate predictable and long lasting indirect restorations. Successfully treating our patients with fixed prosthodontics mandates that we have a comprehensive understanding of not only occlusion and materials, but also a mastery of mechanical concepts and a healthy respect for the remaining tooth structure.There is no other field in dentistry where real improvement in outcomes can be directly attributed to attention to detail and execution. Just as important as technical improvements are in restorative care, we must develop an awareness of all the interactions of the choices we make; use of the appropriate restorative instruments, creating a blue print with a diagnostic wax up and carrying that design though patient approval and provisionals, shade selection and communication, preparation and margin design, the use of a core build up or a post, as well as our luting agent selection.At the end of the day, we cannot afford failures in our treatment. Costs lost to time, remakes and loss of patient confidence are not something we strive for. This course will help you identify potential causes of failures so you can prevent them occurring.Course ObjectivesBack to Basics● Understanding TMJ biomechanics● What is “occlusion”● Requirements for occlusal stabilityUltimate and predictable diagnosis● Evaluation of mountings and confirming final positions for restoration● Verification techniques for mountings and importance of condylar position● Importance of diagnostic waxingArts and Crafts of Restorative Dentistry● Provisional restorations that are true prototypes for our definitive restorations● Understanding colour and how to communicate with the patient and the lab● Instrument selection based on difficulty of caseThe Plan is in Place: Now How Do I Do It?● Treatment plan execution● Clinical steps to complete extensive segmental or full moth rehabilitation
