The BAARD Overlay, Onlay, & Advanced Adhesion Foundational Online Course
This comprehensive online course is the foundational course to enable doctors to execute Biomimetic & Advanced Adhesive partial coverage ceramic restorations immediately. The course will review the biomimetic and biomechanic rationale behind the overlay & onlay design. Students will be given diagnosis and real world treatment planning education & guidelines for minimally invasive ceramic restorations. Dr. Schiffenhaus will then review the ceramic design fundamentals (Ceramic Design Rules) that underlie the BAARD overlay design. Next, fundamentals & armamentarium for ceramic preparation will be discussed before the Overlay & Onlay preparation protocols. Dr. Schiffenhaus goes over the the step by step approach to the BAARD overlay & onlay in lecture format followed by several narrated demo videos of the BAARD overlay & variations.
The non-retentive posterior overlay & onlay requires a firm understanding and execution of advanced adhesion. The rest of the modules deal with the science and fundamentals of Advanced Adhesion, Immediate Dentin Sealing, & Advanced Adhesive Delivery. Students will not only be given lecture content, but step by step demos & protocols for IDS, Biobase with Ribbond, & delivery of overlay with Warm Composite.
