This course is a comprehensive hand-ons workshop to enable doctors to execute Biomimetic & Advanced Adhesive Overlay & Onlay designs immediately. The course will review the biomimetic and biomechanics rationale behind non-retentive partial coverage ceramic designs. Students will be given diagnosis and real world treatment planning education for partial coverage ceramic restorations. Preparation fundamentals with electric handpieces including bur selection and prep protocol will hands on portion of Day 1. Dr. Schiffenhaus will demo several overlay designs and prep principles and mentor students as the perform similar designs.
Day 2 will start with fundamentals of Onlay design followed by prep protocols and demos. Students will learn and perform various non-retentive & adhesive onlay designs. The second half of day 2 will focus on immediate dentin sealing. Immediate dentin sealing is the cornerstone to the non-retentive partial coverage approach. Fundamentals and protocol for immediate dentin sealing will be reviewed. Immediate dentin sealing will be demo’d by Dr. Schiffenhaus & students will perform IDS on their preparations. Last, students will be taught how to adhesively lute to IDS treated preps. This program is intended for General Dentists.
