Share Abstract:

Full-Mouth Adhesive Rehabilitation of a Severely Eroded Dentition: The Three-Step Technique. Part 3.

Vailati, Francesca / Belser, Urs Christoph

Pages: 236-257

Dental erosion is a frequently underestimated pathology that nowadays affects an increasing number of younger individuals. Often the advanced tooth destruction is the result of not only a difficult initial diagnosis (e.g. multifactorial etiology of tooth wear), but also a lack of timely intervention. A clinical trial testing a fully adhesive approach for patients affected by severe dental erosion is underway at the School of Dental Medicine of the University of Geneva. All the patients are systematically and exclusively treated with adhesive techniques, using onlays in the posterior region and a combination of facially bonded porcelain restorations and indirect palatal resin composite restorations in the anterior maxillary region. To achieve maximum preservation of tooth structure and predict the most esthetic and functional outcome, an innovative concept has been developed: the threestep technique. Three laboratory steps are alternated with three clinical steps, allowing the clinician and the dental technician to constantly interact during the planning and execution of a full-mouth adhesive rehabilitation. In this article, the third and last step of the three-step technique has been described in detail.
