This lecture will present a diverse mix of diagnostic, restorative and complex treatment protocols that embody the philosophy that the best dentistry is no dentistry. Early detection of dental pathologies and use of minimally invasive procedures can set a patient up for long term oral success. The materials, equipment an techniques used to recover create important learning points. When the National Institute of Health prints that composite resins only last 5.7 years and the main reason for replacement is recurrent decay and fractures, we need to step back and examine how this impacts our patients and practices. The reasons for this lack of success will be presented and techniques for creating long term success will be taught. More complex care will also be presented that follow along the lines of this Minimal Invasive Philosophy.
- This course will delve into the full palate of dental care from diagnostics to final restoratives and maintenance protocols to help the attendees learn how to create and maintain long term success with minimal impact on the patients health.
- Minimally invasive preparation designs, restorative techniques and subsequent equipment utilized will be presented to help the participants tweak and fine tune their current procedures to help their patients.
- The course participants will understand biomimetic restorative treatment protocols for more severely destroyed teeth to enhance long term success.
- Through complex diagnostics and case presentations the participants will understand not only how they can trasition patients into more definitive care but also how to maintain these cases for long term health.
- Various advanced diaganostic technologies will be presented that will help the participants understand how these technologies can diagnose early to prevent future complex care and to intervene early to enhance success.
