By hosting this event, we want to offer an opportunity for motivated dental students to expand their skills outside the basis of dentistry curriculum. Do you want to connect with fellow students and dentists? Are you interested in Restorative Dentistry? Then this course is for you!
To maximize the learning opportunity during the hands-on, we'll only accommodate a small group . We encourage you to register quickly and join us. For questions, please email Maxime Vandesompele at firstname.lastname@example.org
Subgingival margins remain a challenge in restorative dentistry, imposing a negative influence in the clinical success of adhesive indirect restorations. Conventional alternatives to expose deep margins include surgical clinical crown lengthening and orthodontic extrusion. However, the use of these techniques must be critically evaluated due to possible related complications.
Deep margin elevation (DME) is an alternative procedure in which direct composites are used to relocate the margins coronally. Besides being less invasive, it facilitates impression taking, rubber-dam application and adhesive cementation. This is, however, a technique-sensitive procedure which must be executed carefully.
In this course, the step-by-step of DME will be explained as well as the important clinical aspects to be considered.
