Worn Dentition? Direct and indirect adhesive management through a non invasive approach
The main goal of this lecture is to discuss the indications and protocols for diagnosing and treating severely worn dentition through a new no-prep approach by increasing the VDO: “The Index Technique”. The lecture will also focus on when and how to bond on worn dentition and on additive partial indirect restorations (onlays/overlays) made of composite and/or ceramic, depending on the indication. All the step-by-step protocols will be addressed on the basis of images and videos in order to provide a clear overview of this technique through an analog and digital workflow.
In this webinar, you will learn more about the following themes:
- How to diagnose worn dentition (erosion and/or attrition).
- The indications and protocols for a no-prep direct adhesive approach: “The Index Technique”.
- The indications and protocols for a minimally invasive indirect adhesive approach using composite and ceramic onlays/overlays.
