  • Lecture: Three-dimensional imaging, treatment planning and printing as a predictable approach to successful prosthodontic workflows
    With recent advances in technologies, digital dentistry has become accessible, affordable and predictable. The digital workflow vastly improves clinical efficiency and accuracy, from records acquisition, communication, treatment planning and treatment delivery. Communication between technologies enables a simple yet successful approach to prostheses design and fabrication through 3D printing/additive manufacturing in both plastic and metal.

    This presentation will demonstrate several clinically applicable dental technologies, including 3D plastic and metal printing, from image acquisition to prostheses fabrication.


    • Explore digital technologies relevant to clinical dentistry
    • Understand how digital dentistry can benefit the patient workflow
    • Appreciate how 3D plastic and metal printing can impact dentistry
    • Learn how to implement the technologies into your practice

  • Lecture: Improving patient care through modern technology
    Virtual planning and designing of dental prosthesis has become an indispensable factor in modern dentistry and dental technology. The usage of new technologies results in greater accuracy, speed and efficiency, leading to improvements in patient care. Furthermore, computer-based guided implant surgery is minimally invasive and requires a shorter chair time and fewer appointments than traditional methods.

    In his lecture, MDT Jürgen Feierabend from the South Tyrolean company Zirkonzahn, will explain and demonstrate its perfectly combined digital and analogue workflow. The Zirkonzahn CAD/CAM software has been developed with the aim to put together a software package in which all the existing modules are linked together to provide the user with a complete solution within a single software. By demonstrating the single software components and their distinctive features, Feierabend will describe new possibilities in treatment planning that allow bringing the patient data from the analogue into the digital environment.

    In this context, he will mention the PlaneSystem®, the appropriate device to record the authentic patient situation, creating a precise starting point for all subsequent steps. The PlaneSystem® captures and identifies the natural position of the maxillary arch, the individual occlusal plane and any associated natural asymmetries. Together with the Face Hunter 3D facial scanner, used for photo-realistic 3D digitisation of patient faces, it guarantees a planning reliability for the dental technician, the dentist and the patient, since the tooth restoration can be realised based on the patient’s physiognomy, taking into account bone asymmetries and resulting muscular compensation.

    Feierabend will display further innovations achieved by modern CAD/CAM technology, show a range of material options and different patient cases, giving answers to the difficulties encountered during their planning and fabrication.
