Contemporary Prosthodontics; Digital, Adhesive and Micro Dentistry.
The advent of digital and adhesive dentistry has led to a new era of minimally invasive dentistry. Intraoral scanning, digital design, milling and 3D printing along with all-ceramic materials and bonding systems are routinely used in clinical practice for optimum patient care. Tooth preparation under high magnification allows better visualization and less tooth reduction. This presentation will focus on contemporary prosthodontic treatment solutions to restore chipped, fractured and endodontically treated teeth. From single tooth to extensive rehabilitation, clinical scenarios will be discussed.
At the end of this presentation the listeners will be able to:
- Understand the different digital workflows currently available for fixed prosthodontics
- Review appropriate surface treatment for adhesion depending on all-ceramic material used
- Evaluate the incorporation of dental microscope in fixed prosthodontics
