Course Description

Dr. Burgess will discuss clinical problems related to impression materials and present current findings on digital impression systems. The problems and limitations of ceramic materials are many and specific materials can be used with advantages in certain clinical applications. This presentation will detail which materials must be bonded and how and which materials may be cemented conventionally. Full contour zirconia crowns are being advocated to limit chipping fractures, but are these materials problem free? An evidence based evaluation of materials and techniques will be presented with a strong emphasis on clinical success rates of multiple types of ceramic material.
