You are here:Home/Live Courses/Worn Dentition: Protocols for Predictably Altering Vertical Dimension
Every dentist encounters cases of moderate to severely worn dentition, but very few know how to confidently plan and deliver successful treatment, especially when financial constraints are present. In this cosmetic dentistry course we will be looking at:
All of the ways teeth wear down
The specific protocols that must be used to solve each problem both functionally and esthetically
How to solve the problem when financial constraints do not exist
How to solve the problem when a treatment plan must be broken up and done over time.
Cases of bulimia, GERD, bruxism, sleep apnea, the restricted envelope of function, abfraction, and toothpaste abrasion will be reviewed. Special emphasis will be placed on teaching you several methods to provide direct and indirect “transitional bonding” techniques for your patients. These are must-know techniques in order have success in solving advanced occlusal problems in your practice.
Course Size: 20
Restore a moderately to severely worn dentition (by opening the vertical dimension of occlusion) an arch at a time or by sextant.
Open the vertical dimension with multiple “long-term provisional” techniques so that complex treatment plans can be phased (these techniques will transform how you do full arch dentistry).
Identify the various causes of wear and erosion and a step-by-step protocol to confidently treat these varying clinical situations.
Treat these undiagnosed problems will increase the predictability of your everyday dentistry, as well give you the confidence to handle cases you currently are not doing.
Use the Dawson Diagnostic Wizard® to communicate precise esthetic and functional tooth contours to the dental laboratory, for the fabrication of an optimal diagnostic wax-up.
Set cases up utilizing invisalign®, as well as do the periodontal surgical procedures (gingivectomy/crown lengthening) when it is appropriate.
Target Audience: General Dentists, Specialists, Lab Technicians
One of the most important and obvious differences between implants and teeth is the lack of the Periodontal Ligament (PDL). The PDL contains mechanoreceptors that help determine the amount of force being applied to a tooth. This helps act as a safety mechanism for the tooth, so that it is not overloaded with stress.
I want to spend a few minutes today discussing the benefits of utilizing a Lucia Jig to make a differential diagnosis. All right. Here's what I mean by that. Many times, you're going to have patients that come in the door, and they're going to be complaining about TMJ pain.
