CEREC – innovations non-stop November 08, 2013 14.00-15.00; November 09, 09.30 – 10.30

Esthetics by sustainable glass-ceramic chips, fillings and crowns mostly lacks on a one stop solution for the patients. Even chair-side solutions like former CEREC devices needs highly skilled experts using it successfully for precise and fast shaping of ceramics blocks. In contrary, today an easy and intuitive use of the CEREC CAD-software shorten the learning curve to some hours and even works in case of a not daily designing of restorations. In other words complex fillings and a challenging occlusion can be solved by some clicks, too. The powder free working intraoral scanning camera (Omnicam®) facilitates the work-flow and additionally optimizes the patients’ convenience. However, the milling post-process needs an increased expense to control the tooth preparation. Hackly preparation lines, undercuts and to small removal of tooth tissue have to be avoided to get well-fitting restorations – a decisive prerequisite to fulfill the promise of a one-stop solution. An innovative solution is now launched by a fully automatically working software-tool checking the preparation and identifying the spots for an optimization (Prepcheck®). Dentists comparing this new CEREC feature as a 3D-mirror showing you immediately details which can’t milled precisely. This further important innovation jump leads to an ultimately user friendliness and an elimination of the error rate.

CEREC meets Galileos – creating smart work-flows November 08, 2013 15.00-16.00; November 09, 10.30-11.30

Implantolgy starts fifty years ago which its main indication to retain full dentures at lower edentulous jaws.
Today the implant placement after a single tooth loss is the mostly used therapy concept replacing more and more the alternative three-unit bridge. In case of sufficient residual bone at a healed site or in case of an immediate placement in a fresh extraction socket a minimal invasive therapy concept is possible. A surgical guide is recommended to reduce risks for mal positioning during implant insertion. Additionally repeated abutment removal can contribute to esthetic complications by vertical soft-tissue loss. Therefore the “one abutment one time” and the “one crown one time” concepts are preferable. However, a lot of details within the logistic and communicative interaction between surgeon, prosthodontist and dental technician produce as a side effect a high complexity of the work flow.
Especially the template for guided surgery is manufactured by a dental lab or a production center for such items, avoiding mostly an one stop-solution for the patient. The concept “CEREC meets Galileos” offers a solution. It is an innovative process optimization combining the features of a cone beam CT based guided surgery with the advantages of a chair side system able to produce the surgical template, a CAD/CAM customized two-piece abutment and a temporary or final crown in office within one appointment.

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Recognize that a minimally-invasive treatment concept for an implant borne single crown is possible by a guide surgery template produced in-office by CEREC.
Understand that a virtual patient facilitate the planning of implant placement.
Become familiar with the work-flow “CEREC meets Galileos”

Abstract »

Today a lot of restorative procedures are primarily driven by esthetics. A beautiful smile seems to reflect a certain style of living, and the enhancement of facial beauty isone of the primary goals of patients seeking elective dental care. The lower one-third of the face has a major impact on the perception of facial aesthetics, and the role of a beautiful smile design not only changes the smile alone but also the overall facial appearance as well.
Once the ideal relationship between the restoration and the facial soft tissues is achieved, improvements in natural beauty can be expected to follow. With the ever-increasing importance that the media, patients and general society place on appearance, an even greater emphasis has recently been placed on elective aesthetic dentistry. By improving deficient facial proportion and integumental form, surgeons, orthodontists, and restorative dentists have the unique opportunity to weave these aesthetic needs and the creation of a pleasing smile into the fabric of their comprehensive treatment planning.
We are working on the limit to prevent the loss of healthy tooth substance and the expectations of the patients are high. It's imperative for the restorative dentist to understand patient's desires and expectations prior to initiating irreversible therapy. It's equally important for the dentist and the technician to explore the anatomical and technical limitations inherent with the planned restorative therapy. The next challenge of equal importance is, to visualize the patient the possible result of the further treatment to get his compliance with this. When esthetics is of prime importance in a treatment plan, the patient must be actively involved, so that his or her expectations can be determined and thoroughly comprehended.

Abstract »

Ceramic Veneers present one of the most conservative aesthetic treatment modalities. They are widely and successfully used to correct a wide scope of problems that may arise in the highly aesthetic zone of anterior teeth. These problems include mal alignments, discolorations both intrinsic and extrinsic, diastemas, traumatized teeth, as well as mal shaped teeth.This treatment modality demands that the restorative dentist acquire proper knowledge and skills as well as following certain protocols to be able to achieve the desired results.This presentation will discuss factors that affect preparation, shade selection, temporization, as well as bonding of veneers.
