Course Overview -

Toothwear is a vast subject that encompasses an array of different subjects and approaches…

Aims & Objectives -

This course has been designed to inform, educate and tackle the clinical, psychological,
biological and technical aspects of managing tooth wear effectively and efficiently – perhaps
most importantly in a predictable and low-risk manner.

  • Cover the many aspects of managing tooth wear.
  • Constructing a patient risk profile
  • Hands-on component using some of the most advanced toothwear models available

Day One - Theory Element

This course runs over two days and includes substantial reading material as well as an
intensive theory element on the first day. This initial day runs for 10 hours and will cover many
aspects of managing tooth wear beginning with the psychological aspects for approach and
communication. This follows through to viewing management as an aspect of risk and
constructing a risk profile for your patient leading to diagnosis and suitable management that
is evidence based and thus fully supported.

Day Two - Theory Into Practice

The second day compromises of putting the theory into proactive using some of the most advanced toothwear models available to recreate clinical scenarios and simulating the clinical management using composite resin. The same principles can be applied to composite resin or indirect materials however the theory and detail will be the same. This course is for those who have experience of advanced composite resin as well as those who wish to treat wear cases succinctly and safely. A paradigm shift in management, this course whilst being very intense will provide the building blocks required to safely and predictably treat such cases.

    " I have been on multiple composite courses and also done a masters in aesthetics and teach basic restorative procedures to other dentists. However I must say, what these two provide in 2 days is an absolute masterclass. They can take any dentist at any level and raise their game to absolute top standards through honest teaching and no holding back detailed protocols. They leave nothing hidden and keep their message clear and concise. I really was impressed by how much I picked up. Whatever your level, this is a must do. Excellent course, thanks Gurvinder and Andrew"
