FOURTH EDITION OF OUR MODULAR ESTHETIC WORKSHOPS. MODULE 1: WAX-UP TECHNIQUE IN THE ANTERIOR ZONE APPLIED TO CLINICAL PRACTICE

The first module of the fourth edition of modular esthetic workshops began today. Carlos Saavedra kicked off the day with 16 new dentists coming from all over Spain practicing wax-ups in the anterior zone. We incorporated new tricks and tips that will be useful in our daily practice when making composites or modifying our restorations.

Faces, planes, angle lines, depressions, ridges, and lobes determine the wonderful nature of human teeth. Throughout two days, students will continue working with wax and visualizing with plaster models and drawings to obtain a different viewpoint of teeth.

Learning in a different way, from the basics, from the beginning. In nature nothing is created by whim, everything has its intended end use. To understand this is to be able to improve esthetics without forgetting function.

All of this in a pleasant, calm and bright environment.

COMPOSITE WORKSHOPS MODULE 2. DIRECT AND INDIRECT POSTERIOR RESTORATIONS

LOn March 3rd and 4th, we taught the second module of the first edition of composites. The objectives of the course were: to obtain an exhaustive, up-to-date knowledge of adhesives nowadays, commenting on the current status of the philosophy of self-etching adhesives and cements, to practice the techniques of absolute isolation with rubber dam, to teach our philosophy and protocol for direct restorations and explain step-by-step how to perform incrustations with composites using semi-direct and indirect techniques

One of the main problems we currently have in our consultations is related to contact points. Matrices and wedges are imperfect tools that create proximal anatomies that are not realistic. In this course we present different solutions, tricks and tips to help solve these drawbacks.

In the hands-on workshop we taught students how to create a silicone model to carry out indirect techniques. At D91 we follow a protocol with materials that allow us to create reliable models that do not have practically any pores so we can work safely.

The students made composite incrustations and were taught cases with a high level of difficulty, protocolizing cavity design, impression-taking, subgingival techniques, polishing and cementation of restorations.
