3 Step additional, Adhesive Rehabilitation | Francesca Vailati | Friday 20th May 2022
In a profession where competition is very high, ADDITIVE Prosthodontics is the answer to propose treatments that nobody does.
For the restorations of the anterior teeth for example, in addition to crowns an additive dentist can offer palatal veneers,
Tacos, double veneers, Step veneers… to satisfy the requests of minimally invasive dentistry. Additive dentistry means a more global vision, less single tooth Dentistry, less remakes and emergencies. However, this new way of doing Dentistry needs training.
The 3STEP provides the protocol to help the general practitioners to start improving their therapeutic approach.
Session 1: WHY SHOULD GENERAL PRACTITIONERS BE INTERESTED IN ADDITIVE DENTISTRY?
Session 2: 15 QUESTIONS TO ANSWER BEFORE REPAIRING THE DAMAGED INCISAL EDGES
Session 3: THE 3STEP TECHNIQUE IN FEW WORDS
Session 4: CLINICAL CASES PLANNED FOLLOWING THE 3STEP PROTOCOL
