Advanced dental training within the framework of the IFG in Hamburg

Course contents:
Complex rehabilitations with a change in the vertical dimension of the occlusion pose a particular challenge to the restorative team and require a structured approach to treatment planning and the primary definition of esthetics and function with the active involvement of the patient. Due to the availability of polymer-based CAD/CAM materials, innovative treatment strategies in the pre-treatment phase can be used to conduct a longer “analog” trial run to explore the treatment goal. In each step, the patient remains actively involved and at the centre of the action.

Who is the course adressed at?

To committed colleagues who would like to deepen their knowledge in the field of modern restorative dentistry with a focus on complex rehabilitations.
