Current Concepts in Dentistry Day I


Course description

The Ceramic Update for the Contemporary Dental Practice – From Concepts to Clinical Successes

Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018
Presented by Dr. Ariel J. Raigrodski, DMD, MS, FACP

The purpose of this course is to provide evidence-based knowledge addressing the properties of ceramic materials (mainly zirconia and lithium-disilicate) in terms of esthetics and physical properties. It will highlight how the advent of CAD/CAM technology supports the design and fabrication of these restorations in the dental laboratory, with emphasis on zirconia-based restorations. It will also focus on concepts of restoration design (bilayered, monolithic, and hybrid) for all-ceramic restorations and how appropriate restorations’ design may alleviate prospective clinical complications. The unique properties of zirconia and its use in the restorative phase of implant dentistry will be discussed as well. Finally, this course will describe the newer more translucent zirconia systems and their evolving role in the restorative practice.

Preparation design, insertion aspects (adhesive/traditional cementation procedures), advantages and limitations, and treatment planning considerations for complete-coverage restorations will be demonstrated while presenting complex comprehensive patient care. In addition, the course will focus on the unique properties of zirconia in implant dentistry, emphasizing its use for custom implant abutments for cement-retained implant-supported restorations and for screw-retained implant-supported restorations.

Learning objectives

  • Discuss different all-ceramic materials
  • Describe available design and fabrication techniques and identify how the advent of CAD/CAM technology supports the design and fabrication of such restorations for both tooth borne and implant-supported restorations
  • Refine tooth preparation techniques and restoration insertion procedures which optimize successful clinical outcomes
  • Develop patient treatment plan with all-ceramic restorations while discussing their advantages and limitations
  • Provide tools for attaining more predictable esthetic results with high-strength complete-coverage all-ceramic restorations
