Treatment of the Worn Dentition: Occlusal Consideration and Restorative Solutions.

20th May - 21st May 2022

Course summary

Historically, Tooth Surface Loss affecting the anterior teeth was treated with full coverage restorations, often to the full mouth; although predictable and durable this approach is expensive both financially and in terms of further iatrogenic loss of tooth structure. More recently, Dahl proposed an approach whereby composite is used additively to restore worn tooth structure: this offers a less expensive, conservative solution, however, it can be somewhat unpredictable to plan and often requires multiple adjustments.

This Master class is designed to allow the experienced practitioner to confidently approach more challenging anterior cases starting with transferring information from the patient to the articulator, functionally planning the smile design and occlusal scheme on the articulator and finally accurately transferring the treatment plan back from the articulator to the patients mouth in a predictable time efficient manner.

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.

Phil Zelmanow

The whole course was brilliant. I have been on several restorative courses in the past and this was far and away the best one I’ve been on. All the tutors were very approachable and knowledgeable on the subject and the relaxed environment and venue added to the experience. Thanks again!

Stephen Deboo, University of Liverpool

This is a real must-do-course! Well organised and expertly run.

Dr Alan Hirschowitz BDS-Wits

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.

Chis Cumming

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.
