The Cycle of Tooth Preservation Via Stress-Reduced Direct Composite Restorations

Description:
This lecture will provide clinicians with an overview of differing biomimetic protocols and techniques to predictably restore the anterior and posterior dentition using a minimally invasive approach. Increasing interest has been developed on “Life-like” restorations also known as biomimetic restorations. These are either porcelain or resin based restoration that can be performed on the anterior and posterior areas of the mouth. They may adopt both an indirect and a direct technique. The common characteristic is that they are low stressed and highly bonded restorations able to reproduce the functional and optical characteristic of the natural dentition. Anterior and posterior stress-reduced direct composite (SRDC) restorations may be selected for the restoration of structurally compromised teeth if six basic steps are rigorously respected: 1. Analysis of the occlusion and opposing dentition; 2. Cavity preparation and caries removal endpoints; 3. Analysis of residual tooth structure; 4. Preparation of the dental substrate to achieve a reliable bond to enamel and dentin; 5. Control of polymerization stresses by using appropriate layering and curing techniques; 6. Occlusal force equilibration. With a solid scientific background in mind and a continuous training, clinicians may push the envelope of SRDC restorations. By combining the SRDC protocols on both the anterior and posterior dentition, it is possible to rehabilitate the worn dentition using a biomimetic approach.

Dr. Deliperi; Thanks for your excellent presentation. The vast majority of dentists believe that resin is an inferior material for restoring teeth. My approach to restoring teeth is very similar to yours and the esthetics and longevity can no longer be questioned. Posterior direct resin restorations have been functioning extremely well for almost a quarter of a century.

Great video content on biomimetic just the quality of the video audio is not so good

Thank you, Dr. Deliperi, very nice presentation. What composite material did you use?

Very nice presentation! Sergio Rubinstein

Bravo. Una presentazione molto informativo. Il tuo lavoro e proprio speciale. I tuoi pazienti sono molto fortunati di averti come dentista. Ho visuto in Cagliari per 3 mesi molti anni fa. Uno dei posti piu belli del mondo.

Vineet Sharma - (8/9/2015 3:22 AM)

thanks for your opinion Dr.Maurice Salama.

Jeffery Platt - (8/7/2015 8:36 PM)

This is exactly what dentistry needs to move towards short and long term. This is how I want my own teeth fixed as a dentist. I belong to the NO CROWN club!!! Thanks Jeff Platt

Maurice Salama - (8/7/2015 12:53 PM)

Vineet; It appeared to me that this technique is viable for post endo restorations and is KEY in truly minimally invasive biomimetic dentistry. This is a trend worth keeping an eye on. regards Dr. Salama

Vineet Sharma - (8/7/2015 8:32 AM)

is this technique reliable for post endodontic restoration,or by other mean are crowns not necessary if we follow this technique in post endodontic restoration?

Successful Composite Resin Restorations - Part 1 of 2
Amalgam has been a durable successful dental restorative material; however this material has recently come under question due to its mercury content and disposal. Composite resin materials range from flowable to highly filled condensable type viscosities. There are many factors that influence the success of posterior composite resin restorations. This presentation will identify the factors that limit success (size, patient type, caries risk, shrinkage, curing light) and the materials that can be successfully used to restore posterior teeth. Beginning with flowable materials and their clinical application the presentation will discuss the open sandwich technique, use of flowable posterior restorations, sectional matrices and fluoride, calcium and phosphate releasing materials.

Clinical Tips for Posterior Composites Premium Member Content

Clinical Tips for Posterior Composites
Despite the popularity of posterior composites, it is a topic that still creates questions and frustrations for many clinicians. Our goal is to place these restorations with ease and success to create long lasting results. We will discuss preparation design, material selection, matrices, and placement techniques. One of the most common questions I get is about predictably creating tight contacts, and we will look at several techniques to ensure this happens.

Creative Restorative Correction of a Unilateral Crossbite
Although orthodontics is usually the best solution for cross bite there are patients who wait too long to start treatment and now want an immediate esthetic solution. The patient in this video wanted a great smile for her sister's wedding so the treatment plan consisted of direct composite resin bonding in the brightest shade we could produce. Although the patient agreed to later undergoing orthodontic treatment to improve her occlusion the compromise restorative plan included improvement of the unilateral cross bite.

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team. This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.

Smile Transformations Through Composite Restorations
In today’s esthetic conscious society, to obtain ideal results, the dentist must have a thorough understanding of the patient’s desires, economic concerns, and esthetic expectations. The objective of this course is to help the practitioner successfully select and combine different treatment modalities and materials to achieve outstanding esthetic and functional results without committing the patient to the high biologic and financial cost of indirect porcelain restorations. Multiple clinical cases will be used to demonstrate the versatility of today’s composite materials and their advantages over porcelain restorations in both anterior and posterior situations.

Fatigue Resistance and Crack Propensity of Novel "Super-Closed" Sandwich Composite Resin Restorations in Large MOD Defects

Fatigue Resistance and Crack Propensity of Novel "Super-Closed" Sandwich Composite Resin Restorations in Large MOD Defects
To asses the influence of conventional glass ionomer cement (GIC) vs resin-modified GIC (RMGIC) as a base material for novel, super-closed sandwich restorations (SCSR) and its effect on shrinkage-induced crack propensity and in vitro accelerated fatigue resistance. A standard MOD slot-type tooth preparation was applied to 30 extracted maxillary molars. A modified sandwich restoration was used, in which the enamel/dentin bonding agent was applied first, followed by a Ketac Molar or Fuji II LC base, leaving 2mm for composite resin material. Shrinkage induced enamel cracks were tracked with photography and transillumination. Samples were loaded until fracture or to a maximum of 185,000 cycles under isometric chewing, starting with a load of 200 N and gradually up to a maximum of 30,000 each...
