Restoring the Worn or Broken Dentition

Restoring the Worn or Broken Dentition
This hands-on workshop is designed for dentists. Oral Health Therapists can attend this course but please note this course cannot change or alter the scope of practise.

Course overview

Restoration of an extensively worn or badly broken-down dentition can be complicated, costly and time-consuming to implement. Because of its complexity and cost, this treatment is often delayed until it becomes essential.

Dentists (and patients!) want to stop the repeat restoration cycle and its ongoing costly restorative burden. This workshop will assist clinicians to predictably manage their patients and provide aesthetic and functional restorative outcomes.

Learning Objectives

Clinical evaluation of patients

  • Review of a number of patient cases 
  • Risk assessment tools
  • Impact of patient’s health and lifestyle 
  • Correct treatment planning prior to restoration.

Oral environment

  • How dry mouth and salivary acidity correlates with severe tooth wear and non-carious tooth surface loss
  • Examination requirements, salivary analysis and remineralisation strategies
  • Stabilisation of the oral environment and risk reduction prior to restoration.

New materials and techniques

  • How to evaluate the range of materials and techniques available for cost-effective and conservative management;
  • The use of injection moulding techniques to simplify and enhance aesthetic and functional outcomes
  • Step-by-step procedures (using a range of materials) to allow participants to compare the various materials and techniques for direct and semi-direct restorations.

Practical experience 

  • Demonstration and participant simulation exercises covering techniques for the restoration of the worn dentition;
  • Direct restorative techniques, laboratory procedures, and direct, semi-direct and indirect adhesive technologies.
