AOS (NSW): A/Prof Irena Sailer - Monolithic or veneered? Paradigm Shift in Fixed Prosthodontics

Event Details

A/Prof Irena Sailer: Monolithic or veneered?

Paradigm Shift in Fixed Prosthodontics

Digital impressions and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) of restorations steadily gain in importance within restorative dentistry. One of the factors raising the attractiveness of computerized procedures is the high variety of new restorative materials which were introduced for the computerized manufacturing.

High strength ceramics, lithium-disilicate glass-ceramics or non-precious alloys are already well established as restorative materials. New hybrid materials like e.g. nano-ceramics even promise to be long-lasting, highly esthetic and less costy. They can be used in the monolithic stage, and processed chairside in the dental practice. An increase in the application of these monolithic tooth- and/or implant- borne restorations can be observed in daily clinical practice. Still, the literature on their outcomes is very scarce.

One advantage of the monolithic over the traditionally veneered reconstructions may be a reduced risk for chipping. Another possible benefit may be a better cost – benefit ratio. The lecture will critically evaluate the possibilities that the new materials and associated technologies offer, and will offer selection criteria for daily clinical practice.

Learning objectives:

  • learn about today’s material options – ceramics, hybrid materials, and more
  • learn about the benefits and the shortcomings veneered and monolithic reconstructions, and their indications
  • learn about the recent developments of digital impressioning and CAD/CAM

Online Meeting

With COVID restrictions still in place, the lecture will be an online meeting streamed live from Switzerland.

We look forward to being back to face to face events next year.
