Changing Objectives in Periodontal Prosthetic Rehabilitations

Dentistry that is esthetic, comfortable, survives long-term, and minimizes health risks to the patient is an important clinical objective. The knowledge within dental science, practice, and technology has dramatically expanded leading to better quality through artistry and more standards-based clinical applications. Ceramics are the most consistently predictable esthetic dental material. Today, dentists can offer more treatment options for patients’ complex problems. With advances in digital design, CAD, CAM, dental implants, and new generations of dental ceramics, one can ask if the basic tenants in education and treatment being overridden. If specialty care is ignored, where will the referral patterns be in the future? What needs to be taught to and mastered by students today?

At the conclusion of this lecture, participants will have gained an understanding of:

  1. Which factors and concerns a prosthodontist would have treating patients that require esthetic procedures
  2. The controversies that exist with modern dental materials
  3. The restoration of dental implants in complex conditions
