  • Lecture: Periimplantitis - Etiology - Diagnostics - Therapy - What next?
    In order to deal with the topic periimplantitis there are many facts that have to be addressed. We will help to familiarize you with this specific issue with the aim to make you feel more comfortable in dealing with it.

    First of all we will introduce you to the definition and etiology of periimplantitis and mucositis. Then we will show you the biology and pathology of periodontal vs. periimplantal soft tissue. Further the appropriate clinical and radiological diagnostics will be presented and the correct choice of therapy.

    There are different options of treatment of patients that we would like to address. The non-surgical proceedings like mechanical (manually – mechanically), antimicrobial (CHX, H2O2, Iodine, local + systematic antibiotics), the photodynamic therapy (aPDT), the ozone therapy or the laser that we will familiarize you with. On the other hand we will present to you the surgical procedures in the treatment of periimplantitis.

    Additionally, Dr Hufschmidt has held various lectures about direct restorations, indirect all-ceramic restorations and removable prothetics in the last years.
  • Lecture: No limits! - The world of direct restorations
    Successful dentistry focuses on caries prevention.
    If preventive measures fail, caries lesions may develop. A successful way of restoring such lesions in a minimally invasive manner are direct restorations.
    Modern restorative dentistry would be unthinkable without established and innovative techniques. The adhesive technique is the method of choice in the restoration of both smaller and larger defects. It provides a wide array of application options and allows a maximum amount of healthy tooth structure to be preserved. At the same time, it helps to stabilize the remaining tooth structure.
    In this course, the individual application steps will be discussed in detail. They are the basis for successfully using and integrating the shown restorative techniques into the daily practice routine.

    1 · The principles of minimally invasive dentistry
    2 · Fundamentals of the adhesive technique
    3 · Composition of state-of-the-art composite resins
    4 · Rubber dam technique
    5 · Instruments and auxiliaries
    6 · Material selection
    7 · Single-tooth restoration in the posterior region
    8 · Quadrant restoration with composite resin
    9 · Rehabilitation of anterior trauma with direct restorative procedures
    10 Set-up and wax-up in the restoration of complex anterior defects
    11 Easy-to-achieve, impeccable contours (silicone key)
    12 Reconstruction of abraded teeth by means of direct resin restorations using the stamp technique.

    The lecture is focused on the the clinical aspects of everyday dentistry.
    It covers a lot of clinical cases from the initial clinical situation to the final outcome, including treatment planning, and discussion of alternative treatment options.
  • Lecture: Esthetic solutions! - From single tooth restorations to full-mouth rehabilitation
    In order to provide esthetic and functional rehabilitation to patients with difficult and complex dental care needs, not only a clearly structured dental treatment plan but also a state-of-the art, multifunctional all-ceramic system is required. This practical oriented lecture will focus on the important advantages of all-ceramic materials in the fabrication of predictable and high esthetic restorations and the delivery of defect-oriented care. Both, simple standard cases and very difficult, complex cases can be resolved by using the IPS e.max all ceramic system in combination with the adhesive technique. The red thread running through this lecture will be a standardized esthetic treatment protocol, which will be presented in detail by means of various clinical cases.

    The following topics will be addressed:

    • Indications for lithium disilicate zirconium oxide frameworks and fluorapatite glass-ceramics
    • Preparation techniques
    • Temporization
    • Soft-tissue management
    • Impression making of natural tooth and implants
    • Adhesive cementation
    • Aftercare

    The lecture is focused on the the clinical aspects of everyday dentistry.
    It covers a lot of clinical cases from the initial clinical situation to the final outcome, including treatment planning, and discussion of alternative treatment options.

  • Lecture: Progressive Smile Design. An Introduction
    When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, dental professionals in an effort to give their patients a nicer smile often focus on providing the patient with an idealised smile. Translating the elements of a beautiful smile into proportions, ratios, rules etc. that can be easily conveyed to a dental technician, easily reproduced, easily taught and remembered.

    This rigid adherence to smile design principles may, in some circumstances, result in patients having more treatment than they may require to meet the needs. Moreover, several studies have shown that many patients’ goal is a natural smile and that smiles that correspond to these idealised principles are not actually viewed as any more aesthetic.

    It has been shown that there can be a low correlation between what a clinician believes requires aesthetic correction and the patient’s view. Dental appearance can have a significant effect on the patient’s self-perception and social interaction In my view, our goal in aesthetic dentistry should be a smile that the patient views as meeting their aesthetic goals and requires the least amount of tooth tissue loss at a reasonable cost.

    A progressive approach where the smile is gradually improved and the patient is allowed to see and assess the improvement before committing to the next stage is a sensible and pragmatic approach. Using a protocol of Align Bleach and Bond we can take the patient quickly through this progressive journey and also make the provision of ceramic restorations more simplified by ensuring the optimal position of the underlying teeth so that the process of shade matching, preparation, impression taking and adhesive cementation is more predictable: setting the scene for long lasting success.

    In this talk Andrew will outline the progressive smile design principles and introduce the Inman Aligner a quick, simple removable dental appliance for the alignment of the anterior teeth, as a tool for use in this protocol.
