How do you create long-lasting indirect restorations?

There is no larger frustration than complications or failures in our treatment. Successfully treating our patients with fixed prosthodontics mandates that we have a comprehensive understanding of not only occlusion and materials, but also a mastery of mechanical concepts and a healthy respect for the remaining tooth structure.

Real improvement in outcomes can be directly attributed to attention to detail and execution. Just as important as technical improvements are in restorative care, we must develop an awareness of all the interactions of the choices we make; use of the appropriate restorative instruments, creating a blue print with a diagnostic wax up and carrying that design though patient approval and provisional resttorations, shade selection and communication, preparation and margin design, the use of a core build up or a post, as well as our luting agent selection.

At the end of the day, we cannot afford failures in our treatment. Costs lost to time, remakes and loss of patient confidence are not something we strive for. This event will help you identify potential causes of failures so you can prevent them occurring.

Dr. Chris Ho had a great presentation style, and his content on prosthodontics was really helpful for me.

The environment at YDC was non-intimidating, and I can implement Dr. Mark Evan's tips immediately.
