The Biologically Oriented Preparation Technique (BOPT) is a technique that has proven to achieve greater stability for the tissues around dental restorations over the long-term in comparison to the use of other conventional techniques. This type of preparation allows for better integration of the dental restoration while also producing a change in the shape and thickness of the soft tissue. 

Course objectives

  • To find out more about the BOPT technique and its clinical applications.
  • The conceptual foundations of the BOPT technique: reduction of the tooth, gingival abrasion, temporary dental restoration and determining the final crown shape.
  • Correct diagnosis and treatment planning to carry out the BOPT technique
  • A clear understanding of tissue provisionalisation and maturation times.

Competences to be acquired by students

  • BOPT technique indications
  • Step-by-step tooth preparation.
  • Step-by-step temporary crown.
  • Putting the information into practice on the permanent crown.

Prospective students

The course is aimed at Graduates / Graduates in Dentistry or Stomatologists.

Specialists in dental aesthetics or prosthetics

Course coordinators

Dr Edgar García Amorós

  • Theoretical explanation of the anatomical concepts of the BOPT technique. 
  • Showing clinical case studies of different situations in which the technique can be applied. Assessing the techniques’ potential by analysing case studies and using photographic documentation to clinically observe how the soft tissue improves thanks to the steps in this technique.
  • Looking more closely at vertical preparation, preparing the tooth and its benefits in terms of the final tooth restoration.
  • Putting the knowledge gained through the theoretical stage into practice, by carrying out a temporary crown based on the BOPT technique. 
  • Putting the temporary crown in place, step-by-step, and the materials and tools that can be used for a successful temporary crown.
  • Finally, transferring all the information prepared during the BOPT technique and while making the temporary crown, and using it in your dental technique to make the final restoration.
