Teeth Whitening: A Fairy Tale or a Nightmare?

Prof. Carina Mehanna Zogheib, Lebanon
Ever since the ancient times, mankind has been questing for beauty through the perfection of every detail.


show more/less
Ancient Romans, for example, used urine and goat milk in an attempt to whiten their teeth. According to the FDA, whitening restores natural tooth color while bleaching whitens beyond the natural color. In this lecture, all staining etiologies are revealed as well as the whitening mechanism. Color concept is then explained and different products and techniques are exposed. Side effects, risks and limitations are detailed. Finally, recommendations concerning maintenance to minimize bleaching relapse are presented. Upon the completion of this course, the dental professional should be able to demonstrate knowledge of the following:

• Factors that should be discussed with patients before treatment begins
• Proper preparation of the patient
• Tooth discoloration types and the etiology of dental stains
• Proper method of tooth whitening
• Characteristics of various tooth whitening techniques
• Chemicals used for bleaching and the concentration levels
• Aesthetic effects, possible limitations, risks and adverse reactions to whitening procedures
• General results and side effects of external and internal whitening
• Dangers of hydrogen peroxide
• Results that can be expected with various tooth whitening techniques

Simple, Fast & High Quality Implant Dentistry

With increased cost and patient morbidity due to bone grafting, an increased patient resistance to implant treatment has been noted. The aim of this lecture is to show an alternative method of treating implant patients who have suboptimal bone volume, without bone grafting.


show more/less
This lecture will demonstrate how this is possible by using:
1) Angled implants placed in a titled manner into available bone anterior and posterior to the maxillary sinus thereby avoiding sinus grafting.
2) Wider and appropriately shaped implants placed into immediate molar extraction sockets thereby avoiding socket or sinus grafting.

OBJECTIVES:

Upon completion of this presentation participants should be able to:
1) Understand the benefits of avoiding bone grafts.
2) Understand the benefits of angled and wider implants.
3) Identify cases where bone grafts can be avoided by using angled & wider implants.
4) Understand the surgical technique of placing angled implants in a tilted fashion.
5) Understand the surgical technique of placing wider immediate molar replacement implants.

Zirconia Vs. Glass-ceramics – pro Et Contra

Dr. Anton Lebedenko, Russia
All-ceramic restorations become more and more popular. Nowadays this type of material is the first choice for high esthetics in dentistry.


show more/less
But another major point is the reliability of restorations which depends on the biocompatibility and the strength of material, on the marginal quality etc. There are a lot of different dental ceramics on the market, from translucent feldspar to high-strength oxide one. They offer not only different manufacturing techniques, but also different clinical approaches, such as less invasive preparation and the possibility of conventional cementation strongly depending on the certain art of all-ceramic material. In this presentation there will be discussed features and benefits as well all pros and cons of different types of all-ceramic materials to find the best suitable solution for every case.


Bulk Fill – Behind the Scenes

Dr. Anton Lebedenko, Russia
Last years the interest to Bulk Fill technique has grown dramatically. There is no question, that this is a clear trend in the area of direct restoratives


show more/less
There is no question, that this is a clear trend in the area of direct restoratives. But as usual there are different approaches how to implement this technique in clinical practice. In other words, how to increase curing depth of composites with less compromises. On the other side we get used to apply composites in several increments to compensate polymerization shrinkage, and there are still a lot of practitioners, who are stay skeptical in regards of one layer bulk filling. The reason for that is that it is necessary to solve a number of problems, such as shrinkage stress, insufficient depth of cure  and decreased working time. And the described problems have been overcome only recently. This lecture will cover scientific background as well as clinically relevant topics regarding recent composite restoratives for the bulk placement.


The Science & Art of Restoring Immediately Loaded Implants

Dr. Petros Yuvanoglu, Greece
Restoration of full arch implant cases using screw retained fixed zirconia prostheses with passive fit, structural integrity & acceptable aesthetics remains a challenge for the restorative implant dentist.


show more/less
With the advent of 5-axis CNC dental milling equipment, together with CAD/CAM technology, it is possible to restore the full arch implant case with a screw retained fixed Zirconia prosthesis.
This lecture will demonstrate step by step this innovative treatment modality.

OBJECTIVES:

The objective of this presentation is to demonstrate and eventually educate dentists about the protocol of “Sameday Teeth” on Dental Implants. With the advances of CAD/CAM dental technology we are able to manufacture Milled Screw Retained Implant Prosthesis with excellent Fit and Esthetics .

Dentists having attended this lecture, will be able to:
1) Understand the CAD/CAM technique of screw retained implant prostheses.
2) Understand the benefits of this technique.
3) Understand the limitations of this technique & their possible solutions.
4) See & understand the clinical application of this technique.

Innovative Solutions& Surgery in Aesthetic Dentistry

Dr. Bjoern Tittel, Germany
In recent past the Aesthetic part of dental surgery has been more and more in the focus. Mucosa is more and more important if it is about long time success of implants.


show more/less
Beside the important role in the question of success the aesthetic zone is very influencing the personal opinion of the patients. A good aesthetic result is a basis for happy patients.

Additionally to surgical techniques the choice of right products is very important for a good result.

Accessible Aesthetics

Dr. James Russell, UK
We all know that cosmetic dentistry has seen a huge boom over the last 10 years but we also know that more traditional, aggressive approaches to treatment have meant that the risks could be high.


show more/less
As a result only a small percentage of patients would seriously consider it and many dentists avoided it altogether because they thought it was too risky and too expensive for many of their patients.

This is all changing. Simple treatments are sweeping aside the traditional approach to “smile makeovers” and are redirecting the evolution of cosmetic dentistry. These new protocols are allowing any dentist in any practice to offer this kind of treatment.

It’s far easier, safer and more affordable and therefore opens up the potential of treating a much larger group of patients.

This presentation will cover clear protocols for the sequencing and timing involved in rapid pre-alignment techniques used before minimal and non-invasive cosmetic dentistry.

When used in combination the techniques discussed truly offer the potential to deliver minimum invasion with maximum effect.

Key Learning Objectives!

By the end of the presentation delegates will better understand:
• The role of orthodontic pre-alignment in restorative dentistry!
• Benefits of interceptive orthodontics in adults!
• ABB Protocol (Align, Bleach, Bond)!
• Role of no preparation veneers

Part I: The Intraoral Scan in Prosthodontic and Implant Prosthetic – New Workflows for More Predictability.

Dr. Marcus Engelschalk, Germany
Today computer-aided design (CAD) or computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) of dental reconstructions as crowns, bridges, inlays or abutments based on digitalized cast models can be seen as routine in the daily prosthodontic. Because of that various materials can be used for lab or chairside mills as well as various indications.


show more/less
Intraoral scanners of today can widen the opportunities in the workflow by scanning directly out of the patient mouth to avoid the model workflow and to allow a complete model free workflow in the conventional prosthetic. In the fixed implant prosthetic the direct intraoral scan is still a challenge because of the difficulties in scanning the intraoral scan body. Therefore even today conventional model casts with implant analogues are scanned in the lab to be able to create a digital abutment which can then be manufactured.

New camera systems for intraoral scanner enables two different workflows to generate an optimal emergence profile for implant reconstructions with the highest precision: the single scan and the double scan.

This lecture will demonstrate the current two successful workflows for digital intraoral impression of implants based different scan bodies and different scanners with printed models or model free. In the second part of the lecture the useable materials for abutments and prosthetic reconstructions and their pros and cons will be compared.

The following topics will be discussed:
- Update CAD/CAM in dentistry
- The intraoral scan – overview and basics
- The intraoral scan in prosthodontic – what is doable today
- The intraoral scan in implant prosthetic – overview of the different workflows
- Single scan vs. double scan in implantology
- What about the future

The Effect of Manufacturing Features of Rotary NiTi Files on Their Performance: A Clinical Approach for Analysis

Prof. Khaled Balto, KSA
The last 22 years have been witness to phenomenal growth in endodontic technology. The massive progress of theses new technologies particularly Rotary NiTi Files (RNTF) has resulted in endodontics becoming easier, faster and most importantly, better...


show more/less
This is measured by the ability nowadays to reach to consistent, predictable, and reproducible shaping. This predictability of shaping has not only influenced instrumentation but obturation results as well.

However, as our experience with rotary instrumentation grew, we become to realize that rotary instrumentation is not a panacea for every cases, and that what work in the hands of endodontists might not work in the hands of general dentists who performs fewer root canals a week. This difference is a result of file design and how it affects their clinical performance.

Now, in 2014 it is interesting to set back and review-in a clinical platform- how these changes have taken places across the past 22 years and also note the new trends that are emerging.

The objectives of the lecture is to:

1. Shed the light on the current status of RNTFs
2. Review how, the manufacturing features have been changed across the years to fit better clinical performance
3. Discuss performance evaluation of the traditional RNTFs
4. Enumerate some of the new trends in canal preparation methodology and discuss their efficiency -if any- in maximizing predictability

This presentation deals with different clinical cases beginning with minor to major and severe ridge reconstruction achieving esthetically and fuctionally rehabilitation.
Another purpose of this lecture is to present the results of augmentation with a special phosphate cement, which was used for the first time in dental implants rehabilitation.

Immediate Load With Aesthetic and Functional Restoration

Dr. Emilio Rodriges, Spain
Performing immediate post-extraction implants has been for several years now standard practice in implant dentistry...


show more/less
This technique enable an optimal post-operative due to minimal surgical trauma. Preserves bone volume and initial gingival architecture, and in cases where there is an inherent aesthetic commitment, as to be the leading edge of maxilla support, the preparation and placement of a custom provisional at the same time will facilitate the natural emergence profile.
However, the most laborious step for the practitioner is the provisional adaptation that continue being a careful hand made job.
Cad/cam technology can design and make high quality dental prosthetics over dental implants with high esthetic compromise in a short time. It is also an excellent instrument of communication between patient, dentist and laboratory technician.

The new digital impressions techniques can get dental implant impressions high predictability, clean, simple and faster than conventional techniques. New materials as cad/cam block resins with its improved physical properties get in a short time a high quality dental prosthetics which ensures a long term survival. keywords: implant dentistry, cad/cam, immediate load, digital impression, oral scanner, aesthetic restoration, emergency profile.
