Aesthetic And Functional Challenges In Compromised Dentition: Balancing Tradition And Innovation

Aesthetic And Functional Challenges In Compromised Dentition: Balancing Tradition And Innovation

An ideal treatment plan can often be created only by recourse to a team effort involving the concerted action of various specialists. The cooperation with the orthodontist, the periodontist, the implantologist, the oral and maxillofacial surgeon and the dental technician is often a determining factor in the successful outcome of the most complex prosthetic cases. In order to perform a an ideal treatment plan, a careful evaluation of all the aesthetic parameters such as facial, dento-labial, phonetic, dental and gingival analysis should be combined with an appropriate function so to reach an adequate overjet/overbite value.
Thanks to the digital technology, including the use of specific Apps, it is today possible to  simplify many steps of the treatment plan, thus furtherly improving the predictability of the success of the rehabilitation. Nowadays the prosthetic rehabilitation is undergoing many changes thanks to some revolutionary clinical procedures and technologies. An  innovative operative protocol allows the dentist to face highly compromised clinical situations such as worn out dentition with a minimally invasive prosthetic procedure (MIPP), which guarantees a remarkable and long-lasting resistance of the restorations, while maintaining a maximum amount of enamel. 

The presentation will discuss the fundamentals required to accomplish a pleasing, functional and enduring aesthetic outcome of the prosthetic rehabilitation on natural dentition: treatment plan, team collaboration, understanding of the patient’s needs and selection of restorative materials. 

Learning objectives: 
  • Perform an ideal aesthetic and functional treatment plan with a digital approach
  • Select the appropriate technique and ceramic material when approaching a full-mouth rehabilitation
  • Learn innovative operative protocols with minimally invasive prosthetic procedures (MIPP) for long-lasting aesthetic and functional results
