Event Details

Resin bonded bridges have been extensively used to replace missing teeth for many years. Historically, problems with de-bonding of retainers led to the perception that they should only be used as temporary replacements. If, however, a few simple criteria are applied, these bridges can approach the success rates of dental implants.
In this course, Melbourne prosthodontists will explain their philosophy through a series of lectures and hands-on exercises. Both the history and science of this technique will be presented. Delegates will have ample opportunity to converse with the presenters about treatment planning and execution of fixed tooth replacement in their patients. The hands-on exercises will follow the process from planning to delivery.


At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
Š Recognise cases where adhesive bridgework would be an appropriate
treatment option
Š Understand the parameters that are important in bridge design and
clinical management
Š Perform the clinical procedures, including tooth preparation and
impressions, require for adhesive bridge construction.
