INJECTION MOULDING TECHNIQUES IN EVERYDAY DENTAL PRACTICE
From simple restorations to complex restorations this hands-on workshop will enable participants to gain experience in the use of injection moulding techniques (IMT) for the restorations of both anterior and posterior teeth.
It will include strategies for the management of a range of restorations from small to large to achieve simplified and predictable outcomes from both aesthetic and functional aspects.
1. Simple anterior restorations and the advantages of injection moulding
2. Restoration of the endodontically treated tooth and the compromised tooth
3. Injection moulding for the reconstruction of anatomical form and function of multiple teeth in the badly broken down and worn dentition
4. Injection moulding versus ‘stamp’ technique, which to use and when
5. Understanding the benefits and limitations of contemporary restorative materials
