Break Down

The main goal of this course is to provide, indications and protocols to diagnose and treat severe worn dentition through a new no prep approach increasing the VDO: “The Index technique”. The lecture will also focus on when and how to bond on worn dentition, additive partial indirect restorations (onlays/overlays) in composite and/or ceramic, depending on the indication. All the step-by-step protocols will be addressed through images and videos in order to have a clear over view of this technique through an analog and digital workflow.

Learning Objectives:

  1. How to diagnose worn dentition (erosion and/or attrition).
  2. The indications and protocols for a no prep direct adhesive approach: “The Index Technique”.
  3. The indications and protocols for a minimal invasive indirect adhesive approach through composite and ceramic onlays/overlays.
