Restorative Options in the Esthetic Zone for Young Patients
Daniel T. Kerrigan, DMD, FACP
Traditionally, restoration of teeth in young patients is thought to be interim and minimally invasive. Delayed or non-treatment, following traumatic events or congenital issues, can have lifelong psychological effects for young people. Evolving techniques and exciting new materials offer the restorative practitioner many options. Our goals focus on long-term esthetics and stability while being mindful of continued growth and development.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
- Demonstrate with clinical cases how the use of modern-day restorative materials has application in pediatric patients.
- Provide criteria for the use of implant placement in children and adolescents.
- Describe criteria for the use porcelain veneers in young patients.
