Hands-on workshops are back again!
Take this opportunity to get hands-on experience to hone your techniques, enhance your knowledge and gain readily applicable clinical insights at IDEM 2024 Workshops!
Participants can look forward to the following workshops during IDEM:

HALF-DAY WORKSHOP A
Treatment of Complete Edentulism: The Full-arch Concept II
Date and Time: 19 April 2024 | 9.00am – 12.00pm
Treating complex fully edentulous patients can be a clinical challenge. It can be very confusing to start treatment without established clinical guidelines. The team of professionals (surgeon, restorative dentist and technician) must spend adequate time to diagnose, treatment plan and carry out the clinical and laboratory procedures according to the agreed treatment sequence. This close collaboration and cooperation is essential to ensure clinical success.
The workshop part of this course will discuss the importance of treatment planning and key considerations in managing such patients, and also explore the various possible restorative designs for the complex fully edentulous patient treated with implants. It will also include a hands-on module for key stages of the treatment process, including implant placement according to the Pro-arch treatment concept, and fabrication of a full arch fixed provisional restoration.
- How do we decide on the number of implants to be used?
- How do we perform restorative material selection?
- Be equipped to discuss treatment options effectively
- Considerations for implant-retained overdentures
- Pro-Arch concept
- Understand if the immediate loading protocol is predictable and safe
- Occlusal concepts for Pro-Arch prostheses
- Protective occlusal appliance and maintenance protocol
HALF-DAY WORKSHOP B
Biomimetic Dentistry Hands-on
Date and Time: 19 April 2024 | 2.00pm – 5.00pm
“An adhesive restoration… has many advantages over conventional non-adhesive restorative techniques except that it cannot yet be realized in a simple way.” This quote from Bart Van Meerbeek highlights the crux of modern dentistry’s transition to adhesive dentistry. A doctor can cut a tooth down for a crown in 30 minutes, but they irreversibly remove critical tooth structure that is essential for the tooth’s long-term success. Or a doctor can restore a tooth in a way that lasts twice as long without sensitivity or the need for retreatment, but the techniques require an advanced understanding of adhesive principles.
In this workshop, doctors will practice hands-on Dr. David Alleman’s Six Lessons Approach to Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry, a set of protocols that outline the six essential steps in a biomimetic restoration to ensure predictable, long-lasting outcomes. Under the guidance of Drs. David and Davey Alleman, doctors will learn start-to-finish, how to predictably treat caries and cracks, implement advanced adhesive techniques including immediate dentin sealing, resin coating and deep margin elevation and complete the restoration with biomimetic prep design options and occlusal adjustment.
Doctors will also learn how biomimetic techniques can be applied to endodontically treated teeth to help support their remaining tooth structure and longevity. While an endodontic tooth can never be truly biomimetic, doctors will understand how these advanced adhesive protocols can benefit non-vital teeth.
- Doctors will learn each step in completing a biomimetic restoration, including creating a crack- and caries-free peripheral seal zone, immediate dentin sealing and resin coating, managing C-factor stresses, direct onlay techniques, and occlusal adjustments
- Doctors will learn how to adapt these techniques to non-vital teeth and see case examples
HALF-DAY WORKSHOP C
Predictable & Successful Implant Placement – Do it Guided!
Date and Time: 20 April 2024 | 9.00am – 12.00pm
This hands-on workshop will discuss the crucial parameters for a predictable and successful 3-dimensional implant placement that promotes both a functional and aesthetic restoration but also facilitates proper implant hygiene and maintenance. Thus, resulting in stable and healthy peri-implant tissues and long-term implant success. Furthermore, this course will outline, how this knowledge can be predictably transferred into a real clinical situation by using Guided Implant Surgery.
Besides the theoretical background, this workshop will focus on practical hands-on exercises on models. Each participant will get the opportunity to practice correct free-hand placement of Conelog implants, but will also experience the application and advantages of Guided Implant Surgery by placing implants in an exact pre-determined position using customised 3D-printed guides.
- What parameters need to be considered for correct implant positioning
- How can I determine the optimal implant position
- What is the impact of implant diameter and implant length
- What is the impact of implant type and implant/abutment connection
- What are the benefits of Guided Implant Surgery
- How do I place implants free hand
- How do I place implants guided
- Where are the pitfalls
HALF-DAY WORKSHOP D
Veneer Voyage: Uncover the Ceramic Secrets!
Date and Time: 20 April 2024 | 2.00pm – 5.00pm
Sometimes, we have questions regarding the optimal treatment for a particular case: direct or indirect? This decision is multifactorial, as the choice of material for rehabilitation. While the adhesive technologies move towards simplifying the application steps, the indications for indirect restorations have significantly broadened. Ceramic veneers are one of the most popular materials currently used in smile rehabilitation. These materials combine aesthetics with resistance, allowing to preservation of most of the dental tissue and re-establishing the function. The workshop will describe all clinical steps from planning to maintenance (planning, wax-up, mock-up, dental preparations, impressions, provisional restorations, adhesion, cementation, and maintenance). This hands-on is structured for the dentist to apply the next day in their office. All the practical procedures will be demonstrated and followed step by step by Dr. Monteiro.
- Index for mock-up, provisional, and ceramic thickness control
- Mock-up, tooth preparation
- Impression of the preparations
- Bonding & cementation
