Restorative Space Management: Treatment Planning & Clinical Considerations for Insufficient Space
Stephen J. Chu, DMD, MSD, CDT;Jason Kim, CDT, MDT, Galip Gurel, DDS, George Cisneros, DMD
In attempting to provide a restorative solution for cases that have been compromised by spatial considerations, clinicians have traditionally opted for an orthodontic approach that did not provide optimal aesthetics due to changes in tooth morphology, specifically tooth size and shape as a result of dental deterioration. With the advent of contemporary aesthetic materials and preparation techniques, clinicians and technicians are now empowered to deliver a penultimate result with minimal compromise to the surrounding dentition. This article presents the clinical and laboratory considerations that must be addressed when providing a prosthetic restoration for crowded teeth.
This article discusses an option outside of orthodontics in the restoration of cases that are compromised by spatial considerations. Upon reading this article, the reader should:

Tissue Management for Aesthitc Success with Posterior Restorations
Due in part to the positive tissue response to metal-ceramic crowns fabricated with Captek™ substructures, clinicians can now provide an aesthetic restoration with healthy supporting periodontium for their patients. All indirect restorations, however, depend on an accurate impression of the preparation and proper tissue management throughout provisionalization. Even after careful tooth preparation, the restorative site often fills with blood, intracrevicular and intraoral fluids, and the delicate…
