Adhesive Posterior Restorations: Function, Biomechanics and Esthetics in Synergy All What Matters for Long-Term Success with Direct and Indirect Techniques
October 23 - 26, 2024

Course Overview

Esthetic Posterior Restorations

Adhesive Dentistry Esthetic Restorative Dentistry

This dental course on bonded posterior restorations features all aspects of tooth-colored direct and indirect restorative protocols as well as the specific aspects of bio-mechanically fragilized teeth, like cracked teeth and non-vital teeth.

Reliable Success for Posterior Adhesive Dentistry using Clear Protocols

Esthetic Restorative Dentistry – the clinical application and concept of minimally invasive dentistry and restoring teeth according to their natural properties ensuring biomechanical behavior, function and esthetics to the highest satisfaction for your patients, and successful treatment outcomes for yourself.

Dentistry is way beyond the “post amalgam” era, and full crowns are historical treatment. Today, state-of-the art- in dentistry means bonded, adhesive dentistry, and additive rather than reductive.

This dental course represents the evolution of today’s state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry based on scientific evidence and dental clinical experience. To upgrade your skills in restorations with natural properties, such as biomechanical strength, function, and esthetics, is the goal of this dental course.

Copy Biomechanical, Functional and Esthetic Features of Nature

The dogma of “Extension for Prevention” and “Extension for Retention” is long-time historical.  We are practicing additive, rather than reductive dentistry. New preparations of full crowns can be avoided in most cases. Tissue preservation is today’s state-of-the-art treatment approach and highly appreciated by teeth and patients.

Chemical adhesion has proven to show predictably long-term success, under one condition, that distinguished protocols and techniques are understood, respected, and applied. Therefore, to achieve the most reliable treatment result in esthetic restorative dentistry, it is best recommended to learn directly from the Master himself, Didier Dietschi.

Master All Aspects of Direct and Indirect Restorative Protocols

At IDEA you will be taught by a thought leader in esthetic restorative dentistry, Didier Dietschi, one of the pioneers of adhesive dentistry, a visionary, innovator, and mentor to many, who looks back to over 35 years of clinical practice in adhesive dentistry.

In his posterior, dental hands-on course, Didier Dietschi will be sharing with you his tremendous experience and long-term clinical follow ups, backed up by science and research, and spiced with the latest developments and innovations for clinical practice.

Be exposed to the Forefront of Clinical Adhesive Dentistry

You will experience a paradigm shift in how to approach teeth, dental materials, preparation design, bonding, cementation, and luting protocols. This course will eliminate the troubles and complications you might experience out of your daily practice of esthetic restorative dentistry

Successful restorations for over 35 years in the mouth of your patients with very little degradation

You will upgrade your skills to achieve predictable and long-term stable treatment results based on reliable bonding protocols, new preparation design, decision when to stay direct and when to go indirect, material selection, based on different ceramics and different composites properties, and all consequent details.

You will leave this dental hands-on course as a technically better and more mindful dentist.
