PROSTHODONTICS....A FEW THINGS YOU DIDN’T LEARN AT UNI - A guide to understanding pitfalls to avoid occlusal disasters

Rationalising removable tooth-supported partial denture design In fabricating removable tooth-supported partial dental prostheses, the propensity for iatrogenic destruction of both teeth and supporting tissues is high. Decisions of what appropriate support mechanism – tooth, tissue or mixed, and the associated retention mechanisms to maintain the integrity of these structures, need to be based on what resultant force application will be applied to them.

Do posts weaken or strengthen endodontically treated teeth? It is generally accepted that in the absence of adequate coronal tooth structure, a post will be required to retain a core. But it is claimed that posts inevitably weaken teeth. This lecture will rationalise post placement, design and associated appropriate tooth preparation and restoration (bonded intra-coronal, cusp overlay, full coverage) for both anterior and posterior teeth.

Solving “Occlusion Confusion” Various “philosophies of occlusion” have evolved in an effort to describe the ideal relationship developed between the teeth during restorative procedures or adjustment of the natural dentition. This has led to “Occlusion confusion”. In a dynamic system, the relationship between force application and resistance, modulated by the resilience of the structures, will determine whether the natural dentition or our restorations stand the test of time.

Porcelain veneers: The Science and Art of Camouflage Porcelain veneers can disguise tooth discolourations, mal-alignments and unaesthetic contours and can restore teeth that have lost structure through trauma, caries, erosion, abrasion and parafunction. This discussion will explore the science and art of the technique sensitive porcelain veneer treatment option.

My lab offers “economiser” crowns. Exploring crown materials Have you ever ticked the box on the laboratory form: “economiser crown”? What does this mean? What crown materials can you and your laboratory choose? How do these decisions affect the outcomes for you and your patients?

Systematic Reviews: Facts and Fairytales It is a sad indictment that not all published articles offer conclusions that are valid. Are those from systematic reviews facts or fairytales?
