Resin-bonded bridges

Event Details

Hear Melbourne prosthodontists explain their philosophies through a series of lectures and demonstrations.

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 philosophies through a series of presentations and demonstrations. Both the history and science of this technique will be presented. You will have the opportunity to converse with the presenters about treatment planning and execution of fixed tooth replacement in your patients. The demonstrations will follow the process from planning to delivery. 

You will learn how to: 

  • Recognise cases where adhesive bridgework would be an appropriate treatment option
  • Understand the parameters that are important in bridge design and clinical management
  • Understand the clinical procedures including, tooth preparation, records and delivery required for the adhesive bridge technique.
