An Interdisciplinary Team Approach to Complex Aesthetic & Restorative Challenges

The aesthetic rehabilitation of the periodontally and structurally compromised dentition in the aesthetic zone remains a challenge despite the numerous advances in the treatment of periodontitis, regenerative and dental implant therapies. This presentation will discuss the general principles of treatment planning with an interdisciplinary team approach to managing our cases predictably. The management of some cases requires some ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking and it is also essential to have effective communication and teamwork between the restorative dentist and laboratory technicians.

Learning outcomes:

Participants will:

  • Learn the key principles for the diagnosis, treatment planning and management of the compromised dentition
  • Review a systematic approach to case management in complex cases
  • Learn the benefit of interdisciplinary case management
  • Understand how better to communicate and work as an effective team between the restorative dentist and Laboratory technicians
  • When and why veneered restorations and when and why full contour zirconia
  • Designing of zirconia frameworks and angulated implant restorations
  • How to handle and finalise zirconia frameworks on teeth and implants
