BruxZir: The Dental Zirconia Revolution

Brian Branton

Many across the dental industry have looked upon monolithic zirconia as a unesthetic solution for dental restorations, a material that, if used, should be confined to indications in the posterior area of the mouth. As the material saw increased adoption by technicians and clinicians around the world, the requirements asked of the material began to grow in tandem. Soon, this ever-improving material was defined as a trusted replacement for standard porcelain fused to metal restorations.

Milling or Filling – how do you restore compromised teeth in the digital age

Alif Moosajee & Nik Sethi

In this exciting duo - Dr Alif and Nik will look at whether direct or indirect restorations are the answer for compromised teeth . In an ageing be population often with heavily restored posterior dentition, the clinician always faces a tough call when faced with failing large amalgam or composite restorations. Indirect crowns and onlays still provide the highest level of long term aesthetics but at what biological and financial cost? Especially in the digital age. On the other hand , direct composite overlay restorations rather than large inlays are a wonderful but time consuming way to reduce cuspal fracture risk and also monitor pulpal vitality over years. Today we discuss the relative merits and drawbacks of the materials we use, and the procedure itself. Come join us and engage in this debate .... the best of it's kind.
