Direct restorations of teeth affected by trauma
After dental trauma, it is essential to restore the lost hard dental tissues due to the potential negative impact on the patient’s physical appearance, mastication, and speech. According to available data from the literature, 92% of trauma cases in permanent dentition are fractures of the tooth crown. Traumas most often occur at a young age and represent a functional, aesthetic, and psychological problem. The choice of material and the restoration method of hard dental tissues depends on the size of the injury, the patient’s age and medical and dental status. Modern composite materials allow a minimally invasive approach to direct restorations after dental trauma. The lecture will highlight the materials and possibilities for making restorations after dental trauma with a presentation of clinical cases. Participants will make direct restorations in the front region with composite materials on plastic jaw models during the practical course.
