Morning Program

MACdentistry: The What, When, How, and Why of Current Indirect Restorative Materials, Adhesives, and Cements

As restorative materials, adhesives, and cements continue to evolve and improve, keeping up with the latest advancements is difficult. Patients continue to have high expectations for long term clinical success. Having an understanding and working knowledge of these materials will enable you to make sound decisions and drive that long term success. This half-day lecture will discuss factors affecting the selection of indirect restorative materials that will satisfy the aesthetic and functional goals of the patient as conservatively as possible. Cases will be used to demonstrate the use of these materials, bonding agents, and cements in different clinical situations.

Course Objectives: The attendees will understand:

• the factors that affect material selection
• how to choose Monolithic vs. layered restorations
• how to combine aesthetics and function with emax lithium Disilicate
• the advantages and disadvantages of full contour zirconia
• the benefits of the new universal adhesives
• what cements to use and why
• how to treat the tooth and the restoration when conventionally cementing or adhesively bonding
• the long term benefits of bioactive cements

Afternoon Program

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

One of the problems faced in restorative dentistry is that when teeth wear, they move. Understanding this concept, being able to recognize the different types of wear, and knowing the treatment options are instrumental in obtaining the desired results. This half-day lecture will discuss the etiologies and distinguishing characteristics of tooth wear, as well as a systematic approach to diagnosis and restoration illustrated with clinical cases. Multidisciplinary coordination and laboratory communication are key elements to successful treatment and will also be discussed.

Course Objectives: The attendees will:

• recognize the clinical signs of intrinsic and extrinsic erosion
• develop office protocols to help patients prevent and/ or treat acid erosion
• recognize the clinical signs of horizontal and vertical wear patterns
• design an occlusal scheme that fits the grinding patterns of the patient
