Aesthetic restorative procedures for endodontic treated teeth.
Thursday 8th November 2018
The workshop is designed to offer a comprehensive presentation of esthetic and contemporary direct and indirect restorative procedures for endodontic treated teeth. This will focus on the planning, preparation, and placement fibre posts and indirect restorations options, as well as science of contemporary adhesive materials. This will look at the evolution of posts and concentrate on the benefits of fibre post technology while providing clinical hints on maximizing the potential longevity and aesthetics of post-endodontic restoration. The adhesive procedures on both coronal and root canal dentin will be addressed to clarify the decision of which bonding agent and which composite cement is right for specific clinical situations and a step-by-step technique for cementation will be described to guarantee a predictable result.
9:30-11:30 – Clinical characteristics of endodontic treated teeth
– Direct and indirect restorative procedures of endodontic treated teeth in the posterior and anterior dentition
– Properties and indications for fibre posts
– Properties and indications of adhesive-systems and composite cements
– Adhesive luting procedures for fibre post
11:30 – 12:00 Coffee Break
12:00 – 2:00 – The core build-up for post and core restorations
– The core build-up prior inlay and onlay preparations
– The ferrule-effect and preparation concepts for single porcelain crowns
– Removal of metallic posts from the root canal
– Discussion of clinical cases
2:00 – 3:00: Lunch Break
3:00 – 5:00 – The participant will exercise practically the adhesive luting procedure of a glass fibre post and core build-up on extracted natural teeth and prepare the abutment for a full-ceramic crown. Moreover they will prepare and cement an onlay, as conservative option for the restoration of an endodontic treated molar.
5:00 – 5:30 Exam
