Fractures - Hands-on - Dr. Stephane Browet
Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment
The ”molar lifecycle” or the ”Circle of Death” whereby a small filling can eventually lead to loss of vitality or even extraction of a tooth is well known. Nevertheless, a clear strategy and guidelines on how to prevent this dramatic scenario to develop has not been proposed.
Thorough understanding of the bio-mechanical behaviour of teeth, both sound and restored, on a macro- and micro-level will allow us to come forward with effective measures to save teeth and be less aggressive in our treatment proposals. The importance of early diagnosis, healthy strategy, effective isolation and skilful execution will be evident in this presentation.
Content of the hands-on parts
The objective of this hands-on is to become highly effective in your diagnosis and treatment of cracked teeth. You will learn to use flowchart flashcards that help you in the decisive protocol to be used for these teeth. You will perform a direct composite cuspal coverage restoration and also bond two onlay restorations with two different bonding protocols. Specific attention will go to the preparation, immediate dentin sealing (IDS), provisional phase.
You will learn:
- Early diagnosis
- Making the right decisions about cuspal coverage … where, when, how ?
- Correct tooth preparation and prepping
- Using the right materials for direct cuspal coverage
- Using the correct bonding protocols for indirect restorations
- How to communicate openly with the patient.
What others said about the hands-on course:
Browet gave an interesting and educational insight into the world of infractions. Many impressive clinical photos. Good clinical tips for direct adhesive technique. For me, these had a lot of practical relevance on a “connoisseur level” without getting too elaborate.

I have a lot of patients with large fillings at my dental clinic, so different types of cracks in the teeth are a part of everyday life. After the course by Stephane Browet, I have a more systematic approach. Diagnosis, documentation, and classification form the basis for how I should treat the tooth and inform the patient. The aim is to prevent and restore the tooth in a tissue-saving manner.
