The Maryland (Resin Bonded) Bridge Revisited.
A Success When Done Right
AGD Subject Code: 610
The Resin Bonded Bridge was first developed in Maryland and hence was named the Maryland Bridge. It was created at a time when we knew little bout bonding and materials. Many early failure were encountered because of trial and error techniques. For this reason many dentists no longer use this method and it is not taught at many schools. Over the years methods have been developed at PA (Prosthodontic Associates) that ensure longevity of this type of restoration. This presentation will present 35 years of experience with this restoration and present a checklist of how to do this restoration with confidence and success.

New Innovations in restorative implant dentistry
Mark Chan, DD
AGD Subject Code: 690
Restorative dental work is becoming more and more popular and accessible in the world. In fact, studies suggest that dental implants will fully overtake dentures as a restorative dental procedure eventually. The limitations of dental implants are also decreasing with time. For example, patients with small jaws, weak jaw bone, and thin soft tissue can acquire dental implants without any complications with the help of new innovative technologies. The future of dental implants will likely contain seamless tooth replicas, more affordable options when you visit your dentist near you, faster healing times, and a lot more precision in placing the implant.
