It has been almost 20 years since a new comprehensive book has been written on just crown and bridge. The 21st century has been both a digital revolution and a materials revolution. Techniques and materials have changed pace faster than schools have been able to keep up with. This course is designed to teach the novice practitioner how to treatment plan simple crown and bridge using both old and new techniques and materials.
For the experienced practitioner it will be a welcome update. Practitioners critical thinking ability will be challenged as old conventions and myths are dispelled.
Since 60% of all implants placed in the United States are placed by general practitioners who also restore them a section is specifically devoted to treatment planning and prosthetic restoration of both single and bridged implants.
With a large trend towards implant us due to the high success rate and longevity over traditional crown and bridge another section will cover current controversies, FDA approvals, and Dental Patents from the late 19th through the 21st century.
