The erosion explosion! A practical guide to the MI management of erosive tooth wear

15:30 - 16:15

Lecture content

This lecture will provide a practical overview of the latest management techniques for the minimally invasive management of patients with erosive tooth wear.

Aims and objectives

This lecture will use clinical case examples to demonstrate the latest materials, equipment and evidence-based clinical techniques for the minimally invasive management of tooth wear and will include the following subject areas:

  • Prevalence of non-carious tooth tissue loss
  • Detection and diagnosis of erosive tooth wear
  • Prevention of erosive tooth wear
  • Treatment planning (including occlusal and aesthetic considerations)
  • Step-by-step guide to treating wear cases using direct composite
  • Restoration maintenance

 

Development outcomes

By the end of this lecture delegates will be able to enhance patient care by optimising all aspects of the management of erosive tooth wear. This lecture meets the criteria for category C of the GDC’s development outcomes for enhanced CPD (maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice).
