Dr. Marcos Vargas and Dr. Bob Margeas will hold lecture and hands-on sessions in reference to: Direct resin composites are an important tool in any dental practice. The restorations enable patients to experience minimally invasive procedures that preserve tooth structure while providing esthetics, function and longevity.
In every dental practice, there are numerous patients with severely worn dentitions. Many of these patients would like to have full mouth rehabilitation yet cannot afford to do so all at once. These patients can effectively be treated utilizing a treatment plan phased in over many months or even years. In such cases, treatment planning is the key to success.. There are many common clinical challenges that often lead to failure, one of which is over-focusing on esthetics while compromising biomechanical principles.
Other common challenges with these cases include bonding to different substrates, occlusal disharmony issues, and the development and maintenance of an ideal occlusal plane throughout the treatment plan. The Kois Deprogrammer will be demonstrated to help in understanding centric relation position and to help determine the vertical dimension of occlusion. This lecture and hands-on course is designed to teach a straightforward, step-by-step approach utilizing composite resin to insure long-term clinical success through the Augmentation vs. Amputation of tooth structure. The course is designed for the general dentist and prosthodontist. All models, materials, and equipment will be provided.
