Adhesive Bridgework: A Comprehensive Approach To Case Selection Planning Preparation And Cementation

Course summary

In many cases, dental implants are now considered the Gold Standard for replacement of missing teeth.

However, they require specialised skills for placement, extensive and expensive equipment, and multiple visits.

What do you do when the patient has a missing tooth and cannot afford implants or has an adverse medical condition?
Conventional bridgework offers a time-proven solution but requires preparation of teeth which in many cases is unnecessary destructive and may condemn the patient to future endodontic therapy and perhaps even future loss of the tooth.

In many cases, the tooth can be replaced with adhesive bridgework in a predictable manner which is low cost in terms of finance and tooth structure.

This fast-moving, evidence-based webinar shares 25-years of Jason’s experience with adhesive bridgework.

  • The history and classification of adhesive bridgework
  • Adhesive bridgework: to prep or not to prep. Prep design and why.
  • Ceramic classification: Zirconia vs Lithium Disilicate
  • How to create an ovate pontic site
  • The Rochette Bridge as a provisional to condition tissues
  • Predictable bonding of adhesive bridgework: non-precious, Lithium Disilicate and Zirconia.
  • Particle abrasion of tooth and ceramic and why.
  • How to create a provisional adhesive bridge using the patient’s natural tooth.
  • Avoiding and managing failure

And much, much more….

All illustrated with step-by-step cases and long-term follow ups

After our first hands-on exercise, the work I was able to do was better than any I8 have ever done before. On Monday when I got into the office, all that I had learned translated immediately. I was able to bring this new skill to my patients that day. Typically I do not see such an immediate impact on my practice, but this course was different. Thank you for making me a better dentist.

The A-Z of Restorative Dentistry course with Jason Smithson provided a comprehensive update on restorative dentistry with high end outcomes in mind. Jason’s presentations were all evidence based and simultaneously managed to inspire and entertain. The course structure allowed in depth discussion on cases including our own patients. A major element of the course was hands on with clear demonstrations and support throughout.

Eddie Bateman

What a comprehensive course! I learned a lot from the in-depth theory in the webinars and the thorough hands on instruction from Jason himself where he imparted many useful tips. The new biomechanic knowledge has completely changed my thought processes before putting bur to tooth. I now want to do all Jason’s courses. Thank you.

Caroline Jeffrey, Edinburgh

The Restorative course has helped me in my daily practice, it has a good mix of theory and hands-on skills and has made me feel more confident in tackling cosmetic cases that I may have referred in the past. Jason’s dentistry and breadth of knowledge is inspirational and it was a pleasure to learn from someone who is a master of their craft.
