Dr Carlos Sabrosa is visiting our School courtesy of 3M Oral Care and will present a lecture titled ‘Beauty and strength – is it vital or lethal?’ on Tuesday 10 May from 5.00 – 6.30pm in the Stirling LT, Medical School South.
Beauty and Strength – Is it Vital or Lethal?
Beauty is only skin deep. How true is this statement for materials used for crowns and bridge? That is because the so-called ‘skin’ that is used is a vital component for the longevity, aesthetics and functionality of the prosthesis we provide for our patients. Clinical Prosthodontics is a branch in dentistry that relies heavily on circumstances that can be beyond the control of the dentists themselves. Effective communication between laboratory and dentist is also a critical factor and can directly implicate the quality of the restorative outcomes.
If we as clinicians do not understand the materials used, this can result in indicating unsuitable types of indirect restoration options to our patients. Beauty and strength – is it a vital need that’s achievable or is it a lethal expectation that is often unrealistic?”
A display of 3M Oral Care materials will be available at the lecture and finger food will be provided by 3M Oral Care before the lecture.
