Dr Urs Brodbeck – Switzerland | 7.5 CPD POINTS
This lecture presents a concept out of private practice how to restore dentitions with fixed restorations. Single tooth problems as well as complex full mouth rehabilitations in combination with implants will be discussed.
Small edge ups and full veneers, inlays/onlays and partial crowns, full crowns, three-unit-bridges, multiple-unit-bridges, adhesive and cantilever bridges and intraosseous implants: the armamentarium in present prosthodontics has grown extensively and should be of interest for any modern dentist.
It is up to the clinician now, which concept he/she wants to chose for his/her patients.
Dr Urs Brodbeck runs a private dental practice and is a Specialist SSO/SSRD for Reconstructive Dentistry. He works as an instructor at the Prophylaxis Clinic Zurich, Switzerland, and holds lectures on all-ceramic reconstructions and esthetic dentistry worldwide
The search for an optimal concept to recreate a new dentition that leads to a perfect function and smile is one of the major challenges in dental research. White (teeth, hardware, dental technician made)
embedded in pink as the frame (the soft tissues and ridges, software, clinician made) have both to be in full harmony, regarding function and aesthetics. Both white and pink can be recreated as the natural model in almost all clinical situations, but a meticulous planning is absolutely mandatory.
For several decades, ceramic has been used as a restorative material because of its aesthetics and intraoral stability. Unfortunately, the survival rate of most full ceramic systems seemed unsatisfactory; due to the natural brittleness of ceramic, fractures had been the primary reason for the high failure rates in the past.
Ceramics went though dramatic developments and the material properties changed significantly. In combination with innovations and improvements in adhesive technology, new possibilities were evolved to restore single teeth and to replace missing teeth.
Sintered ceramics, pressable ceramics and high strength ceramics such as zirconia are described and critically discussed and compared with traditional porcelain fused to metal.
Many restorative techniques will be presented with mostly intraoral slides, that will show step by step procedures, right from the beginning with the right diagnostics to the end with the final cementation.
Example clinical cases will ensure inspiration for the practitioner’s daily work and inform about all the different treatment options available and their different fields of application. The general practitioner as well as the specialist for prosthodontics will profit from more than 25 years of practical and teaching experience of the speaker in the broad field of prosthodontics.
