Sorry it has taken me so long to answer, Jose...just saw your question as I was preparing for a lecture this week...And yes, the occlusion was handled by adjusting the lowers so there would be much less chance of a repeat fracture. And I do usually use the NTI appliance that I insist the patient wear at night. If the central incisors are all bonded or veneered I would then suggest a full night guard...soft on the inside and hard on the outside. Hope this answers your questions.

Nice and interesting Dr. Goldstein, i would like to ask you if the heavy oclusion was treated just by the selective reduction of lower incisors? And to know if is the same Oclusal guard and Bite guard? Thanks again for sharing your experience and knowledge

Posterior Composite Restorations: A New Age in Esthetic Efficiency
Placing posterior composite restorations is a routine component of restorative practice. Today we have many composite materials and techniques to choose from including bulk fill, sonic condensation and the old tried and true layering technique. We will discuss the pros and cons of these techniques and what we need to know about their effect on longevity and esthetics.

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.

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...
