Be Aware of Wear: A Systematic Approach to Diagnosing, Treatment, Planning and Restoring the Worn Dentition

In today's society tooth wear is more prevalent than ever and it is therefore incumbent upon the entire dental team to be well versed in recognizing the clinical signs of wear while understanding the importance of prevention when possible and the restorative options when necessary. This half-day lecture will illustrate the different types of tooth wear with clinical examples, and demonstrate a systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the clinical signs of intrinsic and extrinsic erosion.
  • Office protocols to help patients prevent and/or treat acid erosion.
  • Recognize the clinical signs of horizontal and vertical wear patterns.
  • Designing an occlusal scheme that fits the grinding patterns of the patient.
  • Bite opening vs. crown lengthening vs. orthodontic intrusion to gain space for restorations.
  • The importance of an interdisciplinary team in treating wear cases.
  • A systematic approach in the treatment of simple to complex wear cases.

What’s a Dentist to Do?: Diagnosis, Treatment Options, and Rehabilitation of Difficult and Unusual Cases

Sometimes the restorative dentist encounters clinical situations that are out of the ordinary and can often be difficult to treatment plan. This half day lecture will examine several such cases in order to explore treatment options and develop treatment plans. Treatment results will be demonstrated along with helpful clinical tips on: material selection, how to determine incisal edge position, intra-oral composite mock-ups, opening bites, taking CR records, avoiding biologic width violations, fabricating and evaluating provisional restorations, multiple unit adhesive cementation, bonding to porcelain in the mouth, and fine tuning occlusal adjustments.
