The restoration of posterior teeth is one of the main treatment modalities carried out by all practicing dentists. Patients are becoming more discerning and demanding, requiring their posterior teeth to be aesthetic rather than just functional. The clinician has 2 options on deciding which materials to restore decayed teeth or failing restorations, namely, whether to use a composite or a porcelain material. To add to this equation there are number of questions that need to be answered:

  • Which subgroups of composite and porcelain available should be used
  • Once the decision has been made as to the material what is the correct protocol for the preparation of the teeth to accept these materials.
  • How do you justify your choice of technique and material
  • What is the expected longevity of the material

These are some of the questions that will be answered in this workshop. There will be parallel presentations ,with evidence-based information and typodont preparations, going through a step-by-step technique on restoring the posterior teeth with composite and porcelain restorations. Dr Andrew Chandrapal will provide the posterior composite course and Dr Julian Caplan will provide the posterior ceramic course.

Aims

  • To be able to provide ideal treatment for posterior teeth
  • To understand the material options
  • To understand the preparations required

Objectives

  • To be able to make an informed decision as to the technique/material to be used for restoring the posterior teeth
  • To know the practical steps that are necessary for the materials chosen
  • To provide a highly aesthetic restoration
  • To be able to gain informed consent, knowing the advantages and disadvantages for the techniques and materials discussed
  • To build confidence in successfully treating posterior restorations

Composite Resin in the Posterior Dentition РThe Possibilities….

An interactive day to highlight, educate and inspire delegates of the versatility of composite resin in the posterior dentition. This lecture and hands on session will show how steps can be taken to obtain predictable results, troubleshoot and safely push the boundaries of direct restorations in the posterior dentition. Attention will be paid to obtaining life-like restorations that function with occlusal principles in mind that are based around science and longevity. This interstice day will also highlight the synergy obtained between indirect ceramics and direct restorations.
