Course 1525

The Dental Wear Patient:  Diagnosis and Treatment
Paul A. Hansen, DDS
Location:  UMKC School of Dentistry
Date:  Friday, August 21, 2015
Time:  9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Tuition:  $185
Credits:  6.0 ADA-Recognized Hours (AGD Code #610)
Audience:  Dentists, Dental Hygienists, Dental Assistants

Initial examination of a new patient occasionally reveals a severely worn dentition characterized by extensive wear and loss of tooth structure. Function and esthetics are compromised, and the prognosis for one or several teeth may be jeopardized if the problem is not corrected. The complex nature of this condition, and its multifactorial etiology, often overwhelms the restorative dentist in treating such widespread tooth destruction. Loss of tooth structure may be a result of mechanical wear (attrition, abrasion) or chemical attack (erosion). Dr. Hansen’s presentation will include reviews of:  the various etiologies and the risks associated with each when we try to reconstruct the patient; dental occlusion as a point of orientation; the new materials on the market for restoring these patients; and the use of zirconia or lithium disilicate.

Learning Objectives
• Describe the etiologies for the worn dentition
• Identify the types of tooth wear
• Describe how to perform an accurate diagnostic mounting to evaluate wear
• Explain the use of the diagnostic mounting in diagnosis and treatment planning
• Understand the proper sequence for restoring extensive wear cases
• Understand the various new materials used to restore difficult cases

Dr. Hansen serves as an associate professor and the director of Prosthodontics and Dental Implants at the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry. After earning his DDS degree at the University of Nebraska in 1975, he joined the U.S. Air Force and served until 1995 when he retired with the rank of colonel. While in the Air Force he received one year oral surgical training and three years of prosthodontics training at the University of Texas-San Antonio and Wilford Hall Medical Center. He served as the director of the UMKC Graduate Program in Prosthodontics from 1995 to 2001 and maintained a private practice in Kansas City, Kan., from 2001to 2007. In 2007 he became director of Prosthodontics at the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry in Lincoln, where he also maintains a private practice.
