Management of the severely compromised dentition

The problems of abrasion, erosion and attrition are becoming more important as people try to retain their teeth and keep them looking good. It is vital for us to pick up the signs of tooth surface loss as early as possible. But when the damage goes beyond prevention, it is just as important to be able to provide solutions which will protect teeth, restore mastication and speech, and, of course, look good.

This course will help you:

  • Recognise the causes of tooth surface loss
  • Understand diagnosis, management & prevention
  • Identify the treatment options for extensive tooth surface loss
  • Discover how to rehabilitate the dentition cost effectively
  • Activate five principles of occlusion that work in every situation
  • Learn how and when to increase the vertical dimension of occlusion
