Worn Dentition: Two Approaches
The main goal of this lecture is to provide, indications and protocols to diagnose and treat severe worn dentition through a new no prep “hybrid” approach increasing the VDO: 1) a direct workflow “The Index technique”; 2) The lecture will also focus on when and how to bond on worn dentition, additive partial indirect restorations (onlays/overlays) in composite and/or ceramic, depending on the indications.
All the step by step protocols will be addressed through step by step images and videos on patients, in order to have a clear over view of this hybrid (direct-indirect) technique through an analog and digital workflow.
· How to diagnose worn dentition (corrosion; attrition; abrasion; abfraction).
· Opening the VDO and planning the treatment plan
· The indications and protocols for a no prep direct adhesive approach: “The Index Technique”.
· The indications and protocols for a minimal invasive indirect adhesive approach through composite and/orceramic onlays/overlays.
