Team expertise - key for clinical success
Contemporary dentistry offers incredible opportunities for our patients who are always keen on restorations that look very natural and for dentists concerned with continuously improving the quality of the treatment they offer. This evolution, or perhaps even revolution, which we are witnessing is only possible due to the use of synergies in the following three areas:
- A change in the practice and treatment concept: minimally invasive dentistry becomes the standard; we are entering the era of biomimetics.
- Close collaboration through extensive communication between the dentist and the dental technician.
- Leveraging the opportunities offered by modern materials with bonding capability in order to meet increasing biological, esthetic and biomechanical requirements.
These three pillars of success need to be upheld in order to meet the high demands of our patients in our daily practice. For this purpose, the dentist/technician team must work in harmony and follow the same philosophy. These concepts will be presented by means of clinical cases involving cosmetic and functional rehabilitations, which illustrate the high importance of teamwork.
