Diagnostic Considerations and New Treatment Options for Difficult Cases

8th Annual Generations Conference

Friday, September 13, 2019



Difficult cases can be simplified when carefully thought out. A strong proficiency in crowns and bridges, precision attachments, restorative dentistry, and implants allows the practitioner to choose the best treatment option for the patient. This course will present a unique approach to diagnosis and treatment planning that will offer the practitioner new and creative treatment options to help patients—including patients who are not candidates for sophisticated dentistry. Course attendees will learn how to treat teeth with insufficient clinical crowns.  Many teeth being extracted in favor of implant therapy can actually be saved—without buildups or posts. During the course, a demonstration will show techniques for making provisional and permanent restorations on teeth that do not fall out.  Course attendees will be introduced to the double-tilt precision attachment case—a treatment option with a more than 70-year track record. This presentation will feature numerous case examples from a library of more than 100,000 pictures and X-rays taken throughout the past 68 years.



At the completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Diagnose, examine, and choose the best treatment option for a patient
  • Simplify the treatment of difficult cases, manage difficult cases, and incorporate a contingency plan if something goes wrong
  • Save teeth without build-ups or posts; teeth that have a poor prognosis can be useful for transitional restorations and managing patients during implant therapy
  • Best utilize fixed bridgework, removable bridgework, and implant restorations
  • Understand the double-tilt precision attachment case, which can be made with both natural tooth and implant abutments.

Jack R. Winston, DDS Professorship in Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry

The professorship was established at the School of Dentistry in 1981 by the late Jack R. Winston, DDS class of 1943. Dr. Winston wanted to set a professional example by demonstrating the significance of continuing dental education. His personal credo was to help others by contributing his time, skills and resources. Offered to undergraduate dental students and faculty of the School of Dentistry, the lecture will emphasize the field of restorative dentistry. Nationally recognized speakers and distinguished practitioners have presented the lecture yearly since 1983.
