Dr Stefan Koubi graduated from the Marseille University School of Dentistry, France, in 1998. From 1998 to 2001, he worked as a Clinical Assistant at the Hôpital Louis Mourier (Hôpitaux de Paris) in the Department of Stomatology headed by Prof. Poidatz. In addition, he was Research Assistant at the University of Paris V, School of Dentistry in Montouge. In June 2001, he received the AEA diploma (clinical traineeship) and the DEA diploma (postgraduate study program) at the department headed by Prof. de Lumley of the Hôpital Nord in Marseille, France. He earned a doctorate degree in dental surgery in 2001. In the same year, he became an Assistant at the Department of Conservative Odontology headed by Prof. Koubi at the University Clinic of Marseille, France. Dr Koubi opened a private dental practice in Marseille in 2002. In 2004, he obtained a university diploma in oral implantology. In April 2004, he was appointed Assistant Professor at the Department of Conservative Odontology of the Marseille University School of Dentistry. He became Associate Professor in 2008 and earned his PhD in 2011. Moreover, he was awarded the Gold Molar by the students of Marseille University. In 2009, he established a private dental practice in Paris, France. Dr. Koubi is the founder of “L’institut de la Facette”, a private training center established in 2013 which mainly focuses on laminate veneer restorations and the minimally invasive rehabilitation of worn dentitions. Dr Koubi is the author of various national and international publications and reports. He has lectured internationally on the topics of esthetic dentistry, smile design, wear and erosion.
Treating tooth wear has increased over the last two decades. Nevertheless, the treatments involved have not been satisfactory to most patients, nor have they achieved the expected goal in some worn teeth scenarios. New approaches have emerged to reconstruct full arches in a minimally invasive way. These new concepts constitute a revolution in dentistry and their application requires adapted technique and training to achieve optimal results.
The purpose of this session is to suggest a precise and reproducible method that simplifies the treatment of worn dentition. A wax up and a mock-up is mostly used for designing aesthetic outcomes, and then used as a guide (preparation through the mock up or the wax up- apt for the preparation of anterior teeth). The technique can also be used on the posterior occlusal surfaces of the teeth. This will not only provide the exact new vertical dimension of the occlusion but also let the dentist use it as a guide for precisely controlling occlusal preparation simultaneously with buccal preparation
The classical cavity design for a partial bonded restoration on posterior worn dentition will also be reviewed. During the preparation of the occlusal surfaces of the posterior teeth, the marginal ridges must be preserved to reduce the biological cost and the mechanical stress leading to fracture. A new type of thin and reduced restoration called “table top” will be presented.
- Learn the management of worn dentition.
- Learn Minimal invasive techniques.
- Learn about tabletop technique.
