Paradigm in restorations of teeth with excessive material lost: From conventional to digital


Dentistry had always used current technologies successfully and had developed throughout its history. In the 21st century, the use of new digital technologies in our profession is at a level to create major changes, increasing productivity and success.


The nearly perfect software and hardware had started a new age: the digital age in dentistry. The proceeds of this new age are: they make our work faster, easier, more economic, more qualified and more predictable.


The first part of this conference will include restorations of teeth with excessive material lost by using conventional fiber reinforced direct restoration techniques. In the second part, there will be the clinical and academic studies that show which method and materials are suitable to create biomimetic and biomechanic restorations by using digital techniques. The last part will contain suggestions for cementation procedures.

 

Biomimetics: How close are we to the natural?

 

Biomimetic dentistry is defined as to copy what is natural, in the literature. Natural teeth have the most ideal qualities. The main objective while restoring damaged, broken, decayed and lost teeth is to regain them their original strength, function, and esthetics.

In this panel biomimetic approaches will be explained and discussed through the use of academic and clinic work on pedodontics, prosthodontics, restorative, and endodontics.
