About the course

This hands-on covers in depth the essential knowledge on the successful clinical application of minimal invasive all-ceramic RBFDPs which in many cases present an excellent and less costly treatment alternative to single implants or conventional FDPs.

Resin-bonded fixed dental prostheses - hands-on course

Resin-bonded fixed dental prostheses (RBFDPs, so-called Mary-land bridges) with two metal retainer wings have been introduced over 30 years ago for a minimal invasive replacement of missing teeth. However unfortunately due to various reasons metal-ceramic RBFDPs are not considered a comparable treatment modality to implants by most of the dentists.

Cantilevered RBFDPs with a single ceramic retainer wing were introduced 20 years ago. They provide better esthetics and are less invasive than two-retainer RBFDPs. In the meantime long-term data of this minimal invasive treatment option are available. Similar concepts are now also implemented for the replacement of posterior teeth: premolars often can be replaced with resin-bonded cantilevers while of molar replacement with modified inlay-re-tainers show a promising medium-term outcome.

However, it is a prerequisite that the dentist has a good under-standing about indications, materials properties and the clinical procedures including specific bonding techniques.

During this hands-on workshop you will learn:

  • The indications and contraindications for single retainer zirconia ceramic RBFDPs.

  • The materials and laboratory procedures used for single retainer all-ceramic RBFDPs.

  • How to bond long-term successfully to zirconia ceramic.

  • The clinical procedures to successfully use single retainer all-ceramic RBFDPs. 

Hands-on training parts:

  • Tooth preparation

  • Fabrication of a RBFDP (resin)

  • Conditioning and bonding of a RBFDP (simulation)
