Workshop Abstracts

23 - 24 April: Fundamentals of All-Ceramic Restorations in General Practice: Contemporary Concepts on Tooth Preparation and Cementing Protocols in the Anterior and Posterior Dentition by Dr Anthony Mak & Dr Christopher Ho

The use of all-ceramic restorations for the restoration of the natural dentition has become the cornerstone of the modern general dental practice. However, constant evolution of materials and techniques has made the planning and execution of these modality of restorations increasingly challenging.

This bespoke 2-day program, presented by Dr Christopher Ho and Dr Anthony Mak, aims to provide participating dentists with the core knowledge and confidence to predictably deliver these forms of restorations in everyday practice.

The program introduces a comprehensive approach for the restoration of anterior and posterior restorations with ceramic based restorations. The emphasis will be on the adhesive, minimally invasive tooth ceramic restorations from treatment planning, tooth preparation, impression taking, provisionalisation and final cementation and finishing.

The goal of the course is provide participants with the following learning objectives:

  1. For the participants to confidently select and manage the provision of all-ceramic restorations for their patients in general practice.
  2. To provide the practical training in the form of hands-on exercises in the 2 critical aspects of this modality of restorations: Preparation and Cementation.
  3. To provide a step-by-step workflow to allow the immediate implementation of the concepts and techniques taught.
  4. Aspect relating to the delivery of these forms of restorations not covered in detail in the program will be provided in a comprehensive technical and diagrammatic course notes collated and written by the speakers.
  5. Participants will also have the opportunity to work under microscopes and have the opportunity to experience the use of modern digital impression scanners and in-office milling units.

25 April: ENDO PROSTHODONTICS: Restoring the Endodontically Treated Anterior and Posterior Tooth Utilising Direct Composite Techniques by Dr. Maciej Zarow

The learning objectives of the program is to provide the participants with the didactic knowledge and technical skills in the following areas:

  • Materials and Techniques for restoring endodontically treated teeth
  • Posts for endodontically treated teeth: How, where and when
  • When can an endodontically treated tooth be restored with direct composite techniques.
  • How to obtain esthetic direct restorations in the endodontically treated anterior tooth.
    • Tooth Preparation
    • Posts and Fibres
    • The principles of the Class 4 restorations as it pertains to the direct restoration of the endodontically treated incisor (the direct layering protocol)
    • Tips and Tricks to manage color in non-vital teeth.
  • How to restore the endodontically treated molar tooth with direct composite techniques.
    • Tooth Preparation
    • Use of post and fibres in the endodontically treated posterior dentition
    • Restoration of the posterior endodontically treated tooth and cuspal overlays with direct posterior composite techniques

Hands-On Exercises and Demonstrations

  • Restoration of the severely damaged endodontically treated anterior tooth with a direct post retained composite restoration.
    • Preparation of the post space and adhesive bonding / cementation of the aesthetic post
    • Class IV filling replacement: wax up, silicone index, index cutting, layered reconstruction, shape correction, excess removal, polishing.
  • Direct composite restoration of the endodontically treated molar with cuspal overlays

Information is correct as of January 2020 and is subject to change without prior notice.
