About this Event

Event Overview:

A unique blended learning module.

Verifiable enhanced CPD (as per GDC UK guidelines) - Online recorded lectures, technique video’s and academic references supplemented by 2 days intensive interactive hands on instruction on clinical occlusion and principles of restorative techniques in the management of tooth wear.

Start studying online material upon registration and access content for 1 year after intensive hands on sessions.

Comprehensive learning module to cover current concepts in the management of tooth wear:

- Aetiology, diagnosis and prevention.

- When to intervene.

- Occlusal principles and techniques in the restorative management of tooth wear.

- Restorative management of localised anterior tooth wear.

- Restorative management of localised posterior tooth wear.

- Restorative management of generalised tooth wear.

- Management of the worn partially dentate patient.

- Monitoring and maintenance.

Aims, Objectives & Learning Outcomes:

AIMS:

- List the characteristics and presentations of tooth wear.

- Demonstrate the various management strategies for dealing with tooth wear using minimally invasive techniques with the use of clinical cases.

- Identify the relevant literature and evidence with their clinical implications.

- To enable skill transfer, application, management and treatment of patients presenting with tooth wear in general dental practice.

OBJECTIVES:

- Explain the characteristics and presentations of tooth wear.

- Describe, demonstrate and instruct on minimally invasive management strategies.

- Demonstrate and instruct the occlusal principles relevant and applicable in the restorative management of tooth wear.

- Evaluate the relevant evidence.

LEARNING OUTCOMES;

- Recognise the advantages of a minimally invasive approach to the management of tooth wear.

- Have an understanding about the various alternatives for treatment of patients with tooth wear.

- Recognise the role, limitations and advantages of the various materials available for the restorative management of tooth wear

- Formulate an effective management strategy for patients with tooth wear.

- Recognise the various signs and symptoms associated with patients with tooth wear.

Delegates will attain an understanding of tooth wear and will learn strategies to achieve a conservative solution avoiding further loss of healthy tooth structure in order to achieve a functional and predictable outcome. They will be informed on the current concepts to include aetiology, diagnosis, prevention and factors to help decide when and how to prescribe and treatment plan restorative intervention. The blended approach is designed to allow for reflection, appraisal, revision of course content and literature after the delivery of the intensive interactive 2 day hands-on seminars and instruction. Online assessment is included to complete the pedagogical objectives for an overall feedback of learning and understanding of the topic to enable skill transfer into general practice.

Dr Subir Banerji has been in private practice for over 30 years in London UK where he sees referral patients. He has published extensively on the topics to be covered in this program in peer reviewed international journals. He is a member of the European Expert Consensus Panel on Tooth Wear. Subir is the Programme Director for the MSc in Aesthetic Dentistry at King’s College London Faculty of Dentistry Oral & Craniofacial Sciences where he also conducts research on the topic of tooth wear amongst other projects. Along with co-authors Dr Shamir Mehta, Prof’s Bas Loomans & Niek Opdam he has written a book “Practical Procedures in The Management of Tooth Wear” – Published and released by Wiley in January 2020.
