The long-awaited masterpiece by Townie superstar Lane Ochi is now on Dentaltown! We cannot afford failures in our treatment.When we combine the narratives "art and science", one must think of the skill set necessary to fabricate predictable and long lasting indirect restorations. Successfully treating our patients with fixed prosthodontics mandates we have a comprehensive understanding of not only materials, but also a mastery of mechanical concepts and a healthy respect for the remaining tooth structure.

There is no other field in dentistry where real improvement in outcomes can be directly attributed to attention to detail and execution. Just as important as technical improvement, is developing an awareness of the interactions of all the choices we make; from preparation design, margin configuration, the use of a core build up or post, as well as our luting agent selection.

At the end of the day, we cannot afford failures in our treatment. Costs lost to time, remakes and loss of patient confidence are not something we strive for. After viewing this course, you will be able to identify the cause of failures so you can prevent them occurring.

I first watched this course as a review to the principles we were going over in prosthodontic residency and thoroughly enjoyed it. Over the coming months, I went back and re-watched it and was able to catch more tidbits here and there that tie in really well to the global picture. As I'm preparing for board certification, this video has again proved to be an awesome resource for tying in all the principles with a combination of classic literature and clinical/practical applications. Overall: GREAT video and entertaining presenter. THUMBS UP.
Very useful information.
