Prosthodontic Problems?

Event Details

Plan to prevent them!

Every clinician aims to provide the best dental treatment for patients in a predictable manner resulting in the least amount of problems. However at times we provided the right treatment for the wrong clinical situation, resulting in a clinical failure. This 1 day presentation will cover a wide range of topics including:  tooth assessment, patient assessment, aesthetic assessment, occlusion assessment, parafunction management, bridge design and material selection. All of which are important factors to help you identify the risk factors which could result in premature failure, then plan your treatment with long-term success in mind.
