Course Description:

CAD/CAM material choices grow on a daily basis. It can be confusing to try to understand the application, selection, and science of each material and how these products will fit into your clinical practice. Preparation design also has an impact on the performance of these materials as we no longer prepare our teeth for a lab tech, we prepare them for a machine. This series will focus on the biology (the teeth), the engineering (the preparation, and materials science), and the chemistry (bonding). The purpose of this lecture is to place materials into categories for you to make informed clinical decisions in your own practice and to shine light on material interaction with preparation design. This second lecture topic will look at common material classifications for posterior indirect restorations.

Learning objectives: 

  • What is the function of mastication?

  • What makes up a tooth?
  • What are teeth really?
  • The form of teeth follow their function
