  • Lecture: 3D Printing in the Full Digital Workflow
    Trying to get around Digitalization of the dental workflow is becoming very difficult. The quality aspects of the digitalized treatment approach are becoming more and more apparent. Dental laboratories are up and running with CA Designing of crown and bridge work and frame works for removable dentures as well as CA milling and printing of these appliances. Analogue impressions are scanned in the dental lab and in this way placed in the digital environment. Digital implant treatment planning has been embraced by many working in oral implantology. Intraoral scanning gives dentists the possibility to get away from analogue impression taking and integrate the digital files into their treatment planning. The dental implant industry has providing restorative dentists with scanning abutments so they can take IO scans of the implants as well. Software is available for dentists using open scanning systems to go further and plan large fixed dental prostheses but also CAM these using milling and 3D printing technology. In this presentation the role of 3D printing in the digital workflow as it is available for dentists today will be discussed.

  • Lecture 1: Making Virtual Patient for Digital Dentistry
    From the long history of successful dental implant treatment era, we know that classic operational and prosthetic procedure can provide treatment outcome of safe and durable result but for a less possibility of risks, using of provisional removable prosthesis in an edentulous state for healing period is unavoidable.

    However in the modern era, waiting time can be shortened up to immediate loading with careful meticulous planning and preparation such as making a virtual patient in the computer and with intra oral scan or model scan data, 3 dimensional facial photo, used old prosthesis and planning prosthesis data files could be arrange to the backbone of patient CT file and through these alignment, it is possible to make more valuable planning and result.

    Surgical guide can duplicate the original planning position of dental implant and customized abutment and provisional prosthesis might be designed before operation. GBR process can be done simultaneously in immediate loading case with delicate scheme.

    In this presentation, it will be considered for reproducible and satisfactory planning and doing.
  • Lecture 2: Clinical Use of Surgical Guide
    In daily treatment procedure, implant restoration of lower 1st molar is a simple process with lower concentration level. But after delivery of final restoration, some drawback of treatment results could be found, and this handicap could not be reverted easily. Furthermore in multiple complicated implants case, best treatment result could not be guaranteed by intuitive approach by simple manual process.

    Nowadays in updated dental field, 3-dimensional CBCT is a routine process for treatment planning instead of 2-dimensional pantomograph. Technology with CBCT can provide more realistic environment via data merging with intraoral scan and model scan file. These data complex can make more precise treatment planning

    Tangible works like surgical guide, customized abutment and provisional restoration could be made by meticulous handling of input data.

    The goal of this process is a reproduction of planning data to the treatment results in patient.

    Final prosthesis must be planned and designed according to initial guidance environment.

    These treatment planning and doing guarantee the best treatment results by adequate data conversion between digital and analogue process through CAD/CAM technology.

    Through this presentation, several clinical cases will be presented in the theme of CAD/CAM process.

  • Lecture: Dynamic Smile Analysis, Tooth Form Selection and the Sense for Esthetics
    How to integrate them in the new digital era? Every year is easier to document our cases, thanks to the improvement in digital photography. We already know how important it is, probably not to document the whole case, but at least to give the technician certain information and to have a minimal protocol for the diagnosis and planning of anterior cases. This is crucial for us in order to develop a minimal sense for esthetic and it will help us to recognize what kind of treatment we should do and for example, how many teeth we should include or leave untouched. The facial midline and inclination of the teeth midlines or oclusal plane are crucial, should be under control and if there is no way to parallelize them we should at least diminish their esthetic impact, following natural asymmetries. How to choose the proper tooth form and size is also of paramount importance and still difficult to control and CAD-CAM technology is still not making it any easier. How to simplified clinical digital protocols and combine them with simple traditional tools will be the key of the lecture. Advantages and limitations of modern systems will be shown, based on detailed clinical cases and the newest publications.

  • 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.
