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.

  • How to record a facebow registration.

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

A great lesson on recreating anatomy. Ideal for young dentists and experienced clinicians alike.

Nik Sethi BDS

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

Dr Alan Hirschowitz BDS-Wits

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

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.
