I have been restoring broken down dentitions with composite very successfully for over 30 years mainly due to the fact many of my patients simply could not afford conventional treatments with porcelain. I started out many years ago building up badly damaged single teeth and that worked well. It soon evolved out of desperation that I would do a whole arch usually lower teeth against an upper complete denture and that seemed to work well. The fact patients did so well with single arch rehabs I started doing both arches about 12-15 years ago and they have worked well. Many of my patients were older in their 60s and 70s and I have found they did well and were very appreciative that we could keep their teeth as many were advised by other dentists that their teeth were not restorable. Viewing this course will allow dentists to learn about an alternative treatment method to restore dentitions and save many teeth that traditionally would be lost since many patients can not afford porcelain.
Description of Speaker:
Dr. Terry Shaw has practiced general dentistry in PerthAndover, New Brunswick, Canada since 1976 with a special emphasis on direct composite dentistry. He is presently the Continuing Education Chairperson for the Atlantic Academy of General Dentistry. He also has contributed over 225 cases for Dental Town's Cosmetic Dentistry message boards.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to achieve the following:
- Learn an alternative method of restoring broken down dentitions that would enable dentists to offer an additional treatment methodology
- Learn how to restore a single broken down tooth and hopefully can expand that to include a whole arch.
- Learn how to isolate the remaining stumps of these damaged teeth so you can maximize your bonding technique for long lasting restorations
