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?

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.

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.

The Key Role of the Provisional Restoration as a Blueprint in Esthetic Tx Premium Member Content

The Key Role of the Provisional Restoration as a Blueprint in Esthetic Tx
Thru the direct Aesthetic Provisional Application technique, the provisional will serve as a preparation guide, aesthetic guide to both patient and lab as well as an occlusal guide. This gives the practitioner total control over the case, gives the patient a true visualization of what the permanent teeth will look like and gives the laboratory an accurate tooth position to be copied into final form. The d-APA is done with flowable compostite in the patient’s mouth thru a series of additions and reductions to the teeth to gain final position. Although challenging, the technique becomes very rewarding by placing artistry and control into the hands of the dentist.

3 C's of Composite: Contour, Color and Creativity
Mastering composite artistry is the most challenging tooth replacement procedure clinicians are asked to preform. It requires the clinician to understand the optical, physical, handling and mechanical properties of a resin filled with quartz, silica and glass. Combining these attributes to reproduce the natural dentition three dimensionally in contour and color is our goal. Adding a bit of imagination, the clinician can create restorations that are brilliant and ultimately seamless and undetectable.

Planning & Finishing Techniques
Longevity and optimal aesthetics are critical aspects to consider when planning for direct composite resin restorations. While strength, wear resistance, and superior micromechanical retention are typically associated with functional durability, during the planning stage clinicians must equally consider aesthetic longevity, which includes retension of the original morphology, color stability, stain resistance, and marginal adaptation. To ensure optimum results for direct composite resin restorations,…
