Tooth Preparation and Wound Management From The Microscopic Perspective

Tooth Preparation for CAD/CAM Restorations - The Microscopic Perspective
Digital production of indirect dental restoration has gained popularity in recent years. However, there are some differences in the requirement of tooth preparation as compared to that of the conventional workflow.
There are some evidence that certain characteristics of tooth preparation would facilitate the capture by light scanner, resulting in a more accurate digital impression. The importance of creating a proper tooth preparation contour and margin for the subsequent milling process and verifying the fitting of the final restoration cannot be over-emphasized.
In the last decade, utilization of the dental operating microscope (DOM) in general dentistry has also been increasing. With the help of the DOM, the above criteria can be achieved precisely.
In this presentation, clinical techniques of tooth preparation for CAD/CAM restorations, with emphasis on crowns and veneers, will be discussed in a microscopic perspective.
- Tooth preparation design for CAD/CAM restorations
- Advantage of the DOM in tooth preparation for CAD/CAM restorations
- Hands-on experience in tooth preparation under an operating microscope

Wound Management Under Magnification
It is a daily practice for general practitioners to manage different types of intra oral wound. Management of surgical wound should begin with a good pre-operative assessment, gentle intra-operative soft tissue handling, while closure by suturing is by far the most commonly used technique. With the enhanced vision provided by the operating microscope, surgery can be done by minimal invasive approach, closure of those small flaps by finer sutures may reduce post-operative discomfort and promote better healing response, especially in thin biotype cases.
It is not uncommon for patients to present with different types of wound that are more difficult to manage. Traumatic injuries from sport activities or accidents often result in wounds with laceration, sometimes complicated with embedded foreign bodies or patient’s own fractured tooth structures. The cleaning up of these wounds is important for uncomplicated healing, that is much easier to be accomplished with high magnification. The subsequent wound closure with fine suture will minimize scar formation in esthetically important areas.
In this presentation, the basic principles of suturing, the characteristics of different suture materials as well as the use of fine suture under the operating microscope will be discussed.
- Basic suture techniques
- The advantages of fine sutures in wound management
- Hands-on experience of suturing under operating microscope
