Sessions

Longevity of anterior resin bonded bridges: Survival rates of two tooth preparation designs
Main Scientific Program
Saturday 4th May
11:20 AM - 12:05 PM
HALL D

Resin-bonded bridges have been used to replace teeth for many years. De-bonding of retainers led to the perception they should be used only as provisional restorations.
 
This presentation will discuss the history of resin-bonded bridges and describe the evolution of the concept. A recently published research project, comparing the survival of resin-bonded bridges with two different abutment preparations, will be discussed.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Discuss the history and evolution of resin-bonded bridges;
  • Present survival data of resin-bonded bridges provided by practitioners in Victoria, Australia;
  • Discuss the implications of this study in clinical practice

Lunch & Learn | Design Considerations for Success in Resin Bonded Bridgework
Lunchtime sessions Program
Saturday 4th May
12:10 PM - 1:40 PM

Resin-bonded bridges are a valuable option for replacement of missing teeth. They are predictable and can challenge the success of implant-supported restorations.
 
This session will discuss the treatment philosophy and describe the simple criteria required to provide this type of restoration. Bridge design, abutment tooth preparation and other steps will be described.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Outline the diagnostic criteria for planning a resin bonded-bridge;
  • Describe the steps to provide these restorations;
  • Discuss any questions relating to the procedures
