COURSE OVERVIEW:

The concepts and techniques for placing precise cast gold − considered by many as the premiere method of restoration − has become somewhat of a dying art. Yet, gold restorations are beautiful, long-lasting, and increasingly, patients are asking about placing gold in their mouths. This comprehensive course provides education and clinical training in the casting and placement of gold inlays/onlays using techniques developed by Dr. RV Tucker and followed by RV Tucker Academy Study Clubs throughout the world.

Part 1 of the hands-on component offers simulated activities. DENTISTS ONLY

Part 2, offered as an option to participants who complete Part 1 of the course, allows dentists to bring in their own patients to perform gold onlays/inlays under the guidance of expert mentors. Dentists and Dental Assistants

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Assess, treatment plan, prepare, impress/temporize, wax and cast and finally adjust, seat and finish a number of dental inlays and onlays in the Tucker tradition.
  • Explain to patients the advantages and disadvantages of gold restorations
  • Improve the quality of all restorations by transferring techniques used in this course into other areas of operative and fixed restorations
  • Describe conservative preparations for cast gold
  • Determine when to cover and not to cover cusps
  • Apply techniques to minimize the display of gold
  • Explain the importance of a build-up under the gold preparation
  • Communicate to and know what to expect from a dental lab
  • Trouble shoot problems seating cast restorations
  • Utilize a finishing technique to create imperceptible margins in gold restorations with tips to maximize the outcome of gold casting

 

PART 1  – NOVEMBER 24, 25, 2018     DENTISTS ONLY 

During the two-day, intensive hands-on course, participants will prepare, cement, finish and polish several inlay/onlay castings on manikins in the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry’s main clinic. Each day will begin with lectures on topics such as advantages and disadvantages of cast gold, the restorative cycle, biodegradation, and why, where, and how to place gold castings. During the hands-on workshop, expert instructors will provide concentrated over-the-shoulder coaching to guide participants in applying principles taught in lectures, in addition to demonstrating the use of digital scanning for gold casting. Dentists are encouraged to bring their dental assistants.

PART 2 (OPTIONAL) – JANUARY 19, & FEBRUARY 2, 2019 

During this two-day program, participants who want to advance their skills by delivering live patients, will be provided expert guidance in placing gold inlays/onlays in their patients. Lectures at the beginning of the days will share case studies, which will be followed by discussion.

Participants who complete this comprehensive course will be able to start preparing and seating beautiful gold castings immediately.
