This presentation is a follow up to the course "Fundamentals of Fixed Prosthodontics." Our outcomes are the result of attention to detail and execution. Just as important as technical improvements are in restorative care, we must be able to fabricate restorations that work in harmony with the entire gnathostomatic system. This requires the selection of the appropriate restorative instruments, and understanding what articulators do and not do. We will discussing how to create a blueprint from a functional and aesthetic diagnostic wax-up and carrying that design though patient approval, provisionals and the definitive restorations. Time-saving tips will be presented from simple single-unit restorations, how to rapidly prototype an aesthetic case and how to complete a full-mouth reconstruction. This course is a must for all restorative dentists.
