At The Campbell Academy we are delighted to have Jason Smithson back for a second time in 2019.
This time his course will be based on the vertical margin.
Historically, the vertical margin was the first to be used in fixed prosthodontics; however, with the advent of the turbine it was widely abandoned in favour of the horizontal shoulder or chamfer.
The vertical margin is not widely taught in UK dental schools since it is incorrectly considered to result in over contoured restorations and periodontal issues.
Today, with the advent of new materials, a broader understanding of tissue biology and proven evidence-based protocols the vertical margin can produce an elegant minimally invasive solution for patients with periodontally involved and discoloured teeth and may offer more simplified, cost-effective protocols for patients undergoing grafting procedures and soft-tissue surgery.
This course offers 75% hands-on experience, encompassing everything you need to know about vertical margins in fixed prosthodontics.
The course includes close support coaching by Dr Smithson and an extensive course manual.
