CERAMICS 2020:
an open clinical and technical discussion

Debate with Markus Blatz, Stefano Gracis, Nicola Pietrobon
There are no frontal lectures in this webinar. Put a clinician, a researcher/educator and an experienced dental technician in the same “room” and see what happens when they speak freely and without filters about all ceramic materials. Which ceramic materials do they use more often and why? Do they find differences between pressed and milled glass ceramics from a clinical point of view? Which criteria do they apply to determine if a single-wing resin-bonded retainer should be manufactured in zirconia or lithium disilicate? What is their experience with the quality of the restorations when they take a digital vs a traditional impression? What is their thought about printing models from a digital file? These and other questions will be addressed in the debate.

ALL-CERAMIC SINGLE-RETAINER RESIN-BONDED PROSTHESES:
gambling or reliable solution?

Debate with Prof. Matthias Kern
Cantilevered anterior resin-bonded fixed dental prostheses (RBFDPs) with a single ceramic retainer wing were introduced over 20 years ago. They provide better esthetics and are less invasive than two-retainer RBFDPs. In the meantime excellent long-term data of this minimal invasive treatment option are available. Similar concepts are now also implemented for the replacement of posterior teeth that show promising medium-term outcomes comparable to single tooth implants. This lecture summarizes when zirconia ceramic RBFDPs present a favorable, minimally invasive and cost effective treatment option.

We will talk about this and more with one of the world's leading experts.
