Intermediate Restorative Seminars (IRS)

4 x 2-day Clinical Course

Four two-day sessions. Each delegate fabricates up to twelve anterior and eight posterior restorations for 2 patients on the course, using (Cadiax) and fully adjustable Denar instrumentation.
Preparations are done in each dentist’s practice between sessions.
Denar (Cadiax) fully adjustable articulators, Centricheck, facebows & Kois Analyzers are provided.
Patient typically pays for services provided, offsetting tuition plus lab cost.
Laboratory technicians from Waters Edge Ceramics will be on hand throughout.
We will encourage you to create photographic records throughout and present your cases.

Fees: £6,000  + vat  includes loan of necessary instruments, refreshments, notes etc.
Limited to: Maximum 10 participants
The purpose of this seminar is to involve the participant in the restoration of both anterior and posterior teeth utlising the principles of occlusion WITHOUT CHANGING THE VERTICAL DIMENSION OF OCCLUSION in the process.

You will need two patients for this seminar; one requiring between four and six units of anterior fixed restorative dentistry, and one requiring three or four units of fixed restorative dentistry in the same posterior quadrant. If both of these requirements are found on the same patient, that is acceptable, as long as additional extensive restorative dentistry is not needed in other portions of this patient’s mouth. All endo, perio, ortho, and TMJ treatment and necessary implant procedures must have been completed well in advance of Session One. By Session One, both patients should have been equilibrated to a neuromuscular release and have a functional centric relation appliance (of any design you choose) and an anterior deprogrammer. Please bring two sets of unmounted study casts for each patient, poured in die stone and properly trimmed. You will also need to bring your usual dental charting for each patient, completely filled out, including:

  • Medical and dental history

  • Occlusal/TMD screening

  • Full periodontal chart

  • Complete dental charting

  • Full mouth X-rays

  • Any relevant photographs (if possible)

  • Patient details to be on a power-point presentation / memory stick      (if possible)

Patient 1

This is the patient on which the anterior restorative dentistry will be done. It is preferred that at least one cuspid tooth be involved if possible. The ideal patient would require six maxillary anterior crowns, on either implants or natural teeth. A six unit maxillary anterior fixed bridge would also be fine. Mandibular anterior restorations are also acceptable, but do not require as much attention to anterior guidance as the maxillary, so are less desirable.

Patient 2

This patient should require the restoration of an entire posterior quadrant with fixed restorations, either single units on natural teeth or implants, or bridgework.
It is recommended that the participant consider charging his or her patient at least a portion of the usual office fee for the restorative dentistry provided in this seminar in order to offset the tuition cost. In previous seminars, participants typically charge between 50% and 80% of their usual fee, providing some consideration for the additional time invested by the patient because of the educational environment. Please be aware that you are providing first class dentistry in this seminar, and your tuition does not include the cost of laboratory services or provisional restorations.
