Course Description

 Course Description:

Tooth preparation is the single most important aspect of restorative dentistry because it establishes the foundation for all our restorations.

The objective of the course is to provide the clinician with a predictable and systematic approach that would assure a successful treatment in various situations. The theoretical component will review basic principles, highlight new concepts as well as delineate current clinically relevant concepts of tooth preparation.

A series of clinical cases will be presented and discussed along with some common problems and their solutions. A strategy to approach failing cases will be outlined, involving the management of frequent de-cementation and the famous "red line around my crown". Finally, a variety of "tips, tricks" and technical refinements that will aid the practitioner to optimize their clinical results will be presented.

Topics covered:

 1. Indications of extra-coronal coverage

 2. Comprehensive sequence for restorative treatments

 3. Basic concepts of tooth preparation

 4. Current concepts of tooth preparation

 5. Margin design and its implication on gingival health and esthetics

 6. Case presentation and discussion

 7. Complications and management strategies


The hands-on course will provide an overview of the various steps of tooth preparation for both anterior and posterior restorations. The most common errors will be presented and simulated on a selection of artificial teeth. The participants will have the opportunity to learn how to recognize and correct these errors by applying the management strategies discussed in the theoretical part of the course.
