Register now for the April 2, 2014, Regional Meeting at Drury Lane In Oakbrook Terrace.
Todd Snyder will present a discussion on restorative care entitled Restoration Hardware.
The direct replacement of damaged tooth structure is fraught with many challenges not only within the tooth but from the myriad of existing materials and techniques. There are many tools and concepts to tackle the ever changing landscape of the oral cavity. Which ones work best is based on many details. This presentation will provide a comprehensive look at the various current approaches to restoring posterior teeth using direct restorative materials and hardware. A progressive look at different types of materials and hardware to treat various types of lesions, based on remaining tooth structure, occlusal forces and other factors will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on diagnosis, material selection and occlusion. Further instruction will be provided on how to avoid post-operative complications and how to treat them if they should arise.
Topics to include:
