Session III: Treatment-Planning Innovations for the Compromised Patient


Prosthetic Rehabilitation of Compromised Dentition: The Balance Between Function, Esthetics, and Long-Term Results


Mauro Fradeani
Saturday, June 8
8:15 am - 9:15 am
Grand Ballroom (Salon G-K)

The prosthetic rehabilitation of patients with esthetically and functionally compromised dentition frequently requires a multidisciplinary approach. Achieving esthetic objectives in these cases, both on implants and on natural dentition, presents a considerable clinical challenge, especially in the face of extreme compromise of tooth structure that also involves erosion and/or abrasion phenomena. The role of the prosthodontist is to select the most suitable prosthetic treatment that is the least invasive and at the same time aimed at achieving the best functional and esthetic long-term result. Traditional versus innovative protocols will be presented as well as some long-term follow-ups.


Mauro Fradeani, DMD, maintains a private practice limited to prosthetics on natural dentition and implants and is the founder and director of an advanced continuing education center in Pesaro, Italy. He is past president of both the European Academy of Esthetic Dentistry and the Italian Academy of Prosthetic Dentistry. He is an active member of the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry and the American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics. Dr Fradeani is an associate editor for the European Journal of Esthetic Dentistry and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry. He is the author of the two-volume series Esthetic Rehabilitation in Fixed Prosthodontics (Quintessence, 2004, 2008).
