LECTURE PROGRAM: Contemporary Materials and Conservative Management Strategies for Maintaining Compromised Teeth

Patients often present with a compromised or broken down dentition which may require complex and challenging restorative management.

While crowns, bridges and implants may be required in some situations, there are frequently situations when other more minimally invasive options need consideration.

These presentations will look at a range of clinical scenarios and discuss a number of conservative options for assessment and management of compromised teeth.

Topics to be covered include:

· Assessment of the dentition and the oral environment

· Management of the oral environment and risk factors

· Conservative restoration of the worn dentition

· Selection of restorative materials and techniques

· Contemporary concepts with adhesion and bonding

· Management and maintenance of the ageing dentition
