Full Immersion on Direct and Indirect Restorations on The Anterior and Posterior Area

The course is divided into 50% theoretical sessions and 50% hands-on training, with the aim of clearing any doubt the participant may have regarding the correct restorative approach for the treatment of the posterior area, from simple cases to the most complex rehabilitations with a multi-disciplinary approach.

The participants will be provided by the course organizers with most of the necessary equipment for the hands-on sessions. A list of required materials will be given to the participants at the registration.

Day 1 - Module 1: Direct Posterior Restorations

Direct posterior restorations represent one of the most frequent treatment in daily practice and the clinical scenario for this procedure can be very different in every single case, from simple and easy to manage situations to intra-surgical and very challenging restorations. During the course will be analyzed the indications and the right approaches step by step to obtain easy and predictable results with direct composite restorations, from proper isolation of the operative field, to choosing the correct adhesive procedure, to manage deep margins and emergency profiles, until the adequate layering and modeling techniques.

During this hands-on session the “stamp technique” will be illustrated and performed according to the procedures explained in the theoretical sessions.

Day 2 - Module 2: Indirect Posterior Restorations

The design of full-mouth rehabilitations for an optimal esthetic result requires correct treatment planning, evaluation of a suitable ceramic material and skillful application and techniques. Current technologies validly support the clinician in the definition of an ideal treatment plan and the optimization of time and costs. In particular the dentist can count on new digital tools guiding him/her in the step-by-step collection of all the necessary data. The selection of the ceramic material with the dental technician is another fundamental step in the management of complex rehabilitation cases.

Nowadays a systematic approach based on a 35-year experience allows the dentist to face highly com- promised clinical situations with the application of minimally invasive prosthetic procedures. Thanks to the alteration of the Vertical Dimension of Occlusion (VDO) it is possible to take advantage of the newly created space between the two arches: the result of this technique leads to a dramatic minimization of the invasiveness of the prosthetic treatment when using veneers, full-veneers, buccal-occlusal veneers and table tops, even with reduced ceramic thickness. This procedure also enables the clinician to re-establish an ideal occlusal relationship and avoid additional endodontic and/or surgical procedures, which traditionally were necessary in order to improve the retention of the restorations. Finally, the maintenance of a maximum amount of enamel combined with the use of the appropriate bonding technique guarantee a remarkable resistance of the restorations and a long-lasting result of the prosthetic rehabilitation.

A 12-year follow up of this technique will be presented through the presentation of clinical cases.

Day 3 - Module 3: Direct Anterior Restorations

The use of composite direct restorations in the anterior area is a valid treatment option and alternative to improve esthetics, function and biology.

The modern materials, together with valid bonding systems, allow the clinicians to perform well integrated, esthetic results that mimic the optic and physical behavior of the natural dentition.

Any aspect of the decision-making process and operative procedures will be covered to allow the partici- pants to realize high-impact direct composite restorations.

Day 4 - Module 4: Indirect Anterior Restorations

The use of all-ceramic veneers represents a valid alternative to complete crown restorations.

The minimally invasive tooth preparation procedure allows the maximum preservation of health tooth structure thus guaranteeing vitality and higher overall resistance of restoration also thanks to the unde- niable advantages offered by the adhesive cementation technique. Nowadays a new clinical approach based on an innovative minimally invasive prosthetic procedure (MIPP) also applicable to full crown restorations allows preservation of vitality and tooth structure.The availability of a wide range of ceramic material (glass ceramic, alumina and zirconia) permits the achievement of excellent, long lasting esthetic results mixed rehabilitation on implants.
