Laser:Unconventional Management for Soft & Hard Tissue

Tutor: Prof. Dr. Alfred Resch, Germany & Dr. Manaf Taher Agha, Syria
08th May, 2014 (09:00 - 18:00)
Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai, UAE
Course Description: show/hide

Starting from focusing on what is light, we will see what is happening in laser assisted applications in Endodontics and Periodontics. Moreover, we will analyse the reason why we need different wavelengths depending on soft tissue and hard tissue treatments and besides why the use of laser in Implantology is becoming more and more common. We will also see how the laser works in the field of Biostimulation. In a few words, we will deal with new generation laser devices. Today we use laser in dentistry also for 3D scanning for the CAD/CAM and milling systems, an other one for troughing - this is the perfect resolution in new dentistry - not conventional.

Course Description: show/hide

Understanding and using GC GRADIA composite.
GRADIA is a unique light-cured micro-ceramic-composite system for crowns, bridges, inlays and veneers, which compared to conventional composites, gives restorations a color tone close to that of natural teeth.
During this hands-on course our expert explains clearly step-by-step procedures of building up various GRADIA and GRADIA gum shades restorations in the most aesthetic way.
The course includes practical oriented "tips & tricks" and explanations to technical and clinical aspects of composites restorations.

- Anestesia and local anesthetic gels
- Magnification
- Instrument metals that require less or no sharpening
- Lasers
The hands-on course will focus on the use of the miniaturized gracey curet which allows better access to furcations and narrow pockets. When should an extra oral or alternative fulcrum be used and how can we generate more force with the hand instrument. In addition, is the periodontal probe or an explorer more efficient in defining the root surface for remaining subgingival calculus?
To demonstrate the necessity and use of the miniaturized instruments in the procedure or debridement and subgingival root planning.
Approximately 2.5 hours lecture and hands on with typodont and instruments allowing time for 10 breaks, questions and discussion.
Hu Friedy Instrument, company will be supplying instruments and typodonts for participant usage.

Oral Prevention and Management of Dentine Hypersensitivity

Tutor: Dr. Rasha Ahmed, UAE

Course Description: show/hide

Oral prevention and management of dentine hypersensitivity [Varnish application, fissure sealants, impression techniques, introduction to restorative materials]. Dentine hypersensitivity (DH) is a common clinical condition usually associated with exposed dentinal surfaces. It can affect patients of any age group and most commonly affects the canines and premolars of both the arches. This LECTURE tackle the patho-physiology, mechanism and clinical management of the DH. Treatment of DH should start with an accurate diagnosis. Differential diagnosis should be made and all other probable causes should be excluded. An often neglected phase of clinical management of DH is the identification and treatment of the causative factors of DH. By removing the etiological factors, the condition can be even prevented from occurring or recurring. There are various treatment modalities and innovations available which can be used at home or may be professionally applied. The "inoffice" includes desensitizing agents include Varnishes, DBA or restorative procedures. and they act by either occluding the dentinal tubules or blocking the neural transmission.
