Practical Sessions - Day 1

CAD/CAM Master Course in Aesthetic Dentistry

 

This course will give the theoretical background and the philosophy behind the concept for the ultimate challenge to “create prosthetic teeth that look like natural teeth”. Case presentations, material selection, properties of the components, tips and tricks to get an optimum result will be topics of this course. This presentation will illustrate work processes  such as polishing technique, characterization technique, and cut-back technique, by which it is possible to obtain good final results.

 

  • Chairside and Labside process
  • Smile Design concepts in digital dentistry
  • Digital wax-up and mock-up
  • Bio-copy and Copy and Mirror functions make the difference
  • Preparation techniques
  • CAD/CAM blocks materials and finalization techniques (polishing, staining and cut-back)
  • Cementation
  • Quality & standardization in the dental office
  • Handling Negaholic patients
  • Modern Dental advertisement
  • Depreciation and break-even analysis (when will the money be returned after investing in a device)
  • Marketing your dental services

Scan to Crown (Full Arch Case Practial Session)

 

Since the start of digital dentistry in implantology, dentists have wanted to use this technology for all aspects of implant dentistry, but full arch scanning has, so far, not been possible. Is the technology there for full arch scanning? What are the steps with the practice and the laboratory? What are the limitations? This hands-on Practial Session will aim to show the steps from the first scan to the final restoration of a fully digital, full arch case.

 

Learning Objectives:
 
  • To discuss the rationale for full arch scans in implantology
  • To understand the advantages for dentist, patient, and laboratory of the fully digital, full arch workflow
  • To understand the clinical and laboratory steps and stages of the fully digital, full arch workflow

A Critical Assessment of Minimally Invasive Endodontic Procedures

 

Minimally invasive dentistry (MID) is the application of “a systematic respect for the original tissue.” This implies that the dental profession recognizes that an artifact is of less biological value than the original healthy tissue. MID is a concept that can embrace all aspects of the profession. The common delineator is tissue preservation, preferably by preventing disease from occurring and intercepting its progress, but also removing and replacing with as little tissue loss as possible. With regards to endodontic procedures, it can range anywhere from diagnosis to deciding not to treat, to a minimally but purposefully crafted access openings based on anatomical challenges, to minimal removal of dentin during access opening, enlarging, and shaping of the root canal to retain as much sound dentin as possible, to retention of tooth structure during disassembly and retreatment or considering apical surgical intervention, to performing a crown lengthening procedure to establish sound tooth margins for core/crown restorations as opposed to tooth extraction and implant or bridge placement. This presentation will address the concept of MID, critiquing, from a realistic viewpoint, its contemporary impact on endodontic procedures.

Simplified restorative procedures in direct restorations

 

Learning Objectives
 
  • Understanding color matching in direct restorations
  • Choosing the correct adhesive system
  • Understanding the correct workflow of direct restoration for Anterior
  • Understanding the correct workflow of direct restoration for Posterior

Practical Sessions - Day 2

Single posterior crowns digital workflow: Single-visit teeth and implant restorations made simple

 

Indirect restorative procedures are highly complex. They consist of many different clinical and laboratory steps, and each separate step implicates several clinical challenges.

It is possible to carry out these steps and approach the related challenges in many ways. A large number of materials are available for every clinical situation, and various techniques may be adopted to reach the defined treatment goal. The fabrication of CAD/CAM chairside restorations can be a challenge. While having options is generally positive, it also creates confusion and uncertainty. 

The main objective of this demonstration lecture is to the digital workflow to fabricate tooth and implant supported restorations.

Empowering orthodontists in a complete digital workflow

 

Doctors are going to be able to watch a lesson (step by step) in real time, assuring them a practical live experience on how it is to work in an odontological clinic as an orthodontist in a fully integrated and complete digital workflow, focusing on intra-oral scanning, working with CADCAM, Orthodontic and Aligner Software. 

There are going to be three big screens showing every detail to the doctors: the scanning processes and complete orthodontic workflow being executed by Dr. Daniela Aggio - from start to end - reproducing an authentic clinical workflow experience.

 

On Intra-oral scanners, doctors are going to learn:
 
  • scanning techniques, both guided and free
  • file exporting in .DXD and .STL
  • and exporting on the Connect Portal

 

On the Orthodontic Software, doctors will be able to acquire knowledge on:
 
  • scanning techniques, both guided and free
  • file exporting in .DXD and .STL
  • exporting on the Connect Portal
  • model analysis 
  • and treatment simulation

Digital Implantology Practial Session: Chairside CADCAM Implant Restoration

 

A full digital implant case will be shown to serve as a guideline for the Digital Implantology Practial Session. A live demonstration of the 3 stages of Full Digital Workflow will be performed:

 

  • Digital wax-up with Chairside CAD/CAM and Implant planning Software to highlight the importance of “from crown to implant” planning
  • Design of Chairside surgical guide
  • Scanning of a printed model with the Intra-Oral scanner and designing of a Chairside CAD/CAM implant restoration. Advanced clinical procedures will be shown using Chairside Software.

Reciprocating shaping and bioceramic obturation of the root canal systems

 

Reciprocating motion has brought several advantages, simplifying our protocols when facing complex root canal systems. In addition, recently, bioceramic sealers have been released into the market. These new sealers have a biological approach and can be applied to obturate the canals with different techniques (including warm techniques). 

During this hands-on, a review of the contemporary shaping concepts will be reviewed, as well as how the metallurgy affects the behavior of our files. We will discuss the main features of the Bioceramic sealers and their scientific base.

A state of art Reciprocating System will be presented, explaining its clinical recommendations and use tips. For the obturation of the artificial canals, a new Bioceramic Sealer material will be used in combination of several obturation techniques.
