Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai, UAE
Course Description: show/hide

The course will cover the necessary knowledge to master advance anterior aesthetic direct restorations. After the lecture and clinical cases discussion the participants will prepare the teeth 11, 12 and 22. They will have to restore the central and lateral incisors due to problems in their proportions, insufficient length, a class Iv defect with a direct veneer and restore an asymmetric diastema medial. Reconstruction with composites of the incisal borders a peg lateral, one direct veneer and a diastema closure will be done. The right use of the different shades and opacities plus the necessary skills and knowledge for achieving the right shape, contours and natural appearance will be the focus of the course. In addition, new techniques for the closure of spaces and correction of the tooth form will be presented. All the steps will be shown by the instructor with an HD camera with high magnification for explanation of all the details.

Course Objectives:

at the end of the program, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand classic indications of composites and their survival.
  • Understand the last improvements in material science and the treatment possibilities they are opening
  • Prepare properly for a direct veneer and decide when and when not close a diastema with composites
  • Understand the challenges of diastemas and their functional limitations
  • Use the polychromatic approach for anterior direct restorations
  • Perform advance anterior restorations like difficult class IV, direct veneers, peg laterals and diastema closure with a novel technique.

3M Innovation Center, Dubai Internet City, Dubai, UAE
Course Description: show/hide

Restoring broken down and excessively carious teeth can be quite a challenge to the restorative dentist. The decision to restore a tooth with partial crown vs. full coverage crown should be based on numerous factors. What is the amount of tooth structure left? Is the tooth is vital or endodontically treated? What is the tooth location in the dental arch? These are few factors among others that influence such a decision.

Through presentations and hands – on, this workshop will discuss in details all factors involved in case selection, preparation guidelines, imaging and impression techniques, as well as bonding protocol of Inlays, Onlays, and Partial Crowns.

Course Objectives:

at the end of the program, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify the indications and requirement of Partial Coverage treatment modality.
  • Review the guidelines of Preparation, Impression, and Temporization of Inlays, Onlays, and Partial Crowns.
  • Evaluate the Clinical Bonding Protocol of Partial Coverage Restorations.

Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and
Implant Crown/Abutment Design

Tutor: Dr. Morten Worsoe, Denmark
09 May, 2015 / 13:00 – 17:00
3.5 CME HAAD | 4 ADA C.E.R.P CE CREDITS
Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai, UAE
Course Description: show/hide

The workshop is designated ceramic reconstruction users with more than one year experience. The course will start with a short lecture on implant supra-structures made with the ceramic reconstruction Chairside system. The participants will during the workshop get a thorough insight in the manufacturing process - step by step. During the workshop you will scan and design a case to get the necessary knowledge to manage this technic. We will go through the basic ceramic reconstruction 5-step design technic to create a fundament for fast and efficient workflow. This will help you in designing almost any restoration and we will use this knowledge in the hands-on case. We will discuss full anatomic screw retained crowns vs split crowns with opaque abutments and cemented crowns. We will discuss tips and tricks, risk factors and how do we ensure longevity, high esthetics and beautiful morphology. We will also discuss custom-made healing abutments and walk through the workflow. Most of the workshop will be done directly on the ceramic reconstruction omnicam and the participants will be able to follow to procedures working in pairs.

Course Objectives:

at the end of the program, the participants will be able to:

  • Safely and efficiently create their own implant restorations
  • Understand and master the 5 step design method
  • Create customized healing abutments for perfect tissue management
  • Understand indications and applications for ceramic reconstruction manufactured abutments
  • Master both full and split implant crowns on the ceramic reconstruction system.

Course Description: show/hide

Hard Tissue or Soft Tissue? What’s the key to long time success in Implantology using CAD/CAM technologies? How to build up bone in sufficient quantity, how to reach best possible bone quality in the implantation area? How to get a stable and aesthetic soft tissue at the implant?

All these questions - and more - will be answered and explained in the theoretical part. In the practical part we will demonstrate and train the surgical techniques and the use of latest digital techniques. The workshop is considered for advanced and professional users in Implantology and Soft Tissue Surgery. The workshop is splitted into two parts, a theoretical part with lecture and a practical part on model (Animal or plastic model. Animal model will be lamb head). In the theoretical part an overview on accessible materials and proven techniques will be given. Similarities and differences of the materials (eg Free Gingiva Graft vs. Collagen Tissue Matrix) will be shown and explained. Both parts will contain bone reconstruction with the use of particulate bone graft material and membranes in simultaneous and two stage technique. Soft Tissue surgery is more and more important an implant planning to receive good long term results and satisfied patients. To enable the users offer their patients the best possible result under the use of all available CAD CAM techniques and materials is the goal of this workshop.

Course Objectives:

at the end of the program, the participants will be able to:

  • Overview on available materials in Soft Tissue Surgery
  • Overview on Techniques in Soft Tissue Surgery
  • Advanced Knowledge and practice on important techniques - Importance of pre-surgical soft tissue planning
  • Importance of pre-surgical soft tissue planning

6.75 CME HAAD | 7 ADA C.E.R.P CE CREDITS
3M Innovation center DIC, Dubai, UAE
Course Description: show/hide

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.

Course Description: show/hide

The course will start with a lecture that will cover the biological background necessary to make appropriate tooth preparations for all-ceramic restorations. Different ceramics will be classified, in order to asses the properties of different materials. Advantages and disad- vantages will be discussed. Afterwards several clinical cases fully documented in high resolution will be presented showing a wide array of preparation techniques and cementa- tion materials and protocols. A comparison between the needs for CAD/CAM and non CAD/CAM restorations will be given.

The hands-on section will start at the end of the morning session. First, preparation guides will be made and several tips for the orientation during preparation will be given. In the afternoon session, the biological preparation for an inlay, overlay, a premolar crown and an anterior all-ceramic crown will be made. At the end of the session, an all/ceramic restoration will be cemented as a demonstration. Different cementation materials and techniques will be presented.

Course Objectives:

at the end of the program, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the biological principles of tooth preparations
  • Indicate the right type of preparation depending from the patient needs
  • Understand the advantages of certain materials for each indication
  • Prepare for inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers, based on the limitations and advantages of CAD/CAM and non CAD/CAM technology.
  • Understand the geometry necessary for improvements of fit and duration of all- ceramic CAD/CAM and non CAD/CAM restorations.
