  • Lecture: Philosophy of Dental Esthetics & Single Visit Smile Design Concept
    Dentistry faced 3 big evolutions in the past 60 years: Adhesion, dental implants and digital dentistry. Amongst all, digital dentistry seems to be the strongest one. After this evolution, first the dental industry was affected and numerous new materials have been introduced in the market nearly every day. Now, we begin to change our treatment protocols accordingly and a new concept is born: Single Visit Dentistry. On the other hand, the big alterations were not only on the dental side, the esthetic perception of the people has also changed. Today, a well-balanced, whitish smile has become the most important communication tool and therefore an increased number of patients are demanding smile design rehabilitation. When the improvements in digital dentistry and the new expectations of the patients are combined, single visit smile design dentistry may be a rational treatment concept. In this presentation 3 topics will be covered;

    • Esthetic perception of the patients in terms of smile design
    • Creating an individual smile design protocol for patients
    • Single visit smile design concept.
  • Lecture: Digital Dentistry: Do novel materials meet all our expectations?
    The demand of the patients towards metal-free restorations has increased due to search for biosafety as well as aesthetics. To meet this need, novel materials and processing technologies are being introduced. With recent developments in sintered glass, polycrystalline, alumina and zirconia based ceramic materials and adhesive systems parallel with the computer-aided design and manufacturing methods have shifted the way of dental technology focused on lost-wax technique. Very precise intra-oral scanners have been developed due to advances in optical techniques. Computer technology in dentistry is not only used for restoration fabrication, but it is also used for diagnosis and treatment, as a communication tool for patients and treatment planning for all dental fields as well as guided surgery. Digital dentistry will be the key of the future!

    The objective of this lecture is to discuss the high quality, fast but precise and relatively economical dental restoration fabrication techniques and materials by using the CAD/CAM technology.

  • Lecture: Digital Biomimetics – innovative treatment strategies in prosthodontics
    In the dental environment currently two megatrends exist – one is the digital revolution in technology – the other one is the minimal invasive “close-to-nature-dentistry”. On the first glance, this two developments seem to contradict each other. However looking closer towards the details, dentists, dental technicians and patients can find an enormous potential of synergies: Digital dentistry offers great tools, to get closer to the aim of nature-imitating restorations and to respect biological principles at the same time. The presentation discusses the application of up-to-date technology, like intraoral scanners, face-scaners, 3D-printers and innovative materials and introduces new concepts and their integration into our daily work- and life environment. One emphasis on which the presentation focuses is the extensive win of information and analysing methods due to digital technology that leads to more predictability regarding the treatment outcomes.

    - Learn about trueness and precision in digital treatments
    - Learn about the advantages of the Munich Implant Concept
    - Learn about the advantages of digital full dentures
    - learn how digital technology supports biomimetic treatment concepts

  • Lecture: The Evolution of the Digital Workflow in the Dental Practice
    Nowadays our patients are demanding more esthetic, durable and minimally-invasive all-ceramic restorations. There is also a strong desire for a one-visit treatment without the need of a temporary restoration. The combination of digitally manufactured all-ceramic restorations using the latest 5XT technology and the adhesive cementation technique facilitate long lasting restorations resulting in significant preservation of tooth structure and excellent esthetics meeting the highest patient demands. However, small mistakes in the various clinical steps of the treatment sequence and the manufacturing process can compromise the clinical long- term success of our digitally produced restorations.

    Dr. Michael Dieter will introduce a digital chairside concept that helps the clinician to make esthetic dentistry more predictable and more profitable in the dental practice.

    Learning objectives:
    • Clinical indications that can be ideally covered chairside - and the limitations.
    • Ideal tooth preparation and isolation techniques.
    • Predictable intraoral data acquisition (Scan)
    • Favourable restoration designs (CAD)

  • Lecture: Preparation rules for CAD-CAM restorations. Did something really change?
    We have seen a lot of changes during the last years involving material science.
    From Gold and different metal alloys we progressed to ceramics materials. From traditional conventional cementation we advanced to adhesive bonding. Since the survival rate of traditional materials was quite acceptable, the question was why should these be changed. The obvious answer was because they were not esthetic enough. With new demands of an increasingly “esthetically concerned” society, those materials are not longer adequate. The issue was that new materials were more sensitive to technique and clinicians were relying too much on adhesion and forgetting the “classic” preparation rules. So the question that arises is if preparation rules for all ceramic restorations once were changed, should they be modified again for CAD-CAM restorations?

    The lecture will analyse this topic from an historical perspective, based on practical examples and fully documented clinical cases. Material science will be discussed and new challenges of minimal invasive preparations combined with CAD-CAM restorations will be presented.
  • Lecture: Digital Dentistry: How to Get the Best of Digital Photography, Computarized Smile Design and CAD-CAM Technology?
    Every year it is easier to document our cases, thanks to the improvement in digital photography.
    We already know the importance not to document a whole case, but at least give the technician certain information and have a minimal protocol for the diagnosis and planning of anterior cases. This is crucial in order to develop a minimal sense for esthetic and it will help us to recognise 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 occlusal plane are fundamental and should be under control. If there is no way to paralelnize them we should at least diminish their esthetic impact. How to choose the proper tooth form and size is also of paramount importance and still difficult to control. In addition, the CAD-CAM technology is still not making this process any easier.

    How to simplify clinical digital protocols and combine them with simple traditional tools will be the key of this lecture. Advantages and limitations of modern systems will be be discussed.

  • Lecture: Guided Smile: Providing Predictability to the Immediate Hybrid Cases
    With the global acceptance of the All-on-4(or 6), it is extremely important to plan these cases prosthetically before an implant has been placed. Traditional cases rely on the surgeon to remove enough bone to allow for the substructure and restoration of the final prosthesis. In many cases this may not be realized until several months later and it is time to restore the patient. By integrating CAD/CAM technology with CBCT technology these pitfalls as well as many others can be resolved prior to surgery. Guided Smile enables the surgeon, restorative dentist and lab technician to work on the prosthesis and implant placement before the procedure. It also allows for a more accurate placement of the implants with guided osseous alveloectomy, and a guided prosthetic placement. This takes the guessing out of the immediate prosthetic design and allowing for a more ideal PMMA at the time of placement with minimal occlusal adjustments. It also allows for ease of placing the implants at the desired angulation and at the optimal and desired posterior distances. Ultimately this provides an easier surgical visit for the patient and reduces the lab time needed for the prosthetic aspect of finishing and delivering the PMMA.
