Biomechanics of Teeth Explained Course is organized by Kois Center, LLC and will be held from Sep 20 - 24, 2021 at Kois Center LLC, Seattle, Washington, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 46.5 continuing education credit hours. Course Description : Accurate information about the biological and mechanical properties of teeth and dental restorative materials may be hard to find due to opinion and marketing efforts, yet these remain fundamental to the success of our dentistry and the happiness of our patients. In Biomechanics, Dr. Kois shares independent research and evidence based guidelines to understand caries detection, removal and prevention; the modes and etiology of tooth structure loss; tooth preparation and design principles utilizing proven dental materials and specific protocols for their use and important laboratory protocols to achieve predictable results. This five day, comprehensive course will give you the power to make educated decisions about materials options and their specific protocols. You will understand how and when to utilize effective caries management regimens in challenging situations, and you will gain great clarity in making clinical decisions about when to restore and retain individual teeth, and when to remove them. Course Objectives : • Learn how to assess biomechanical risk and prognosis. • Learn metrics and principles for tooth preparation and design. • Learn when to use direct vs. indirect restorations. • Understand when to use cohesively vs. adhesively retained restorations. • Learn laboratory and clinical protocols for adhesively and cohesively retained restorations. • Understand why and when restorative failures occur and how you can use that information to increase your success rate.
