How will AI technology applies in the field of general dentistry and aligner treatment? How will it change your traditional approach and treatment?
Remote Monitoring has all the answers. Using Artificial Intelligence provides doctors with a measurable way to monitor patients’ treatments leading to improve clinical outcomes, practice efficiency and convenience for both doctor and patient to a higher level of care.
The use of all-ceramic restorations for the restoration of the natural dentition has become the cornerstone of the modern general dental practice. However, the constant evolution of materials and techniques has made the planning and execution of these modalities of restorations increasingly challenging.
This bespoke 2-day program, presented by Dr Christopher Ho and Dr Anthony Mak, aims to provide participating dentists with the core knowledge and confidence to predictably deliver these forms of restorations in everyday practice.
The program introduces a comprehensive approach for the restoration of anterior and posterior restorations with ceramic-based restorations. The emphasis will be on the adhesive, minimally invasive tooth ceramic restorations from treatment planning, tooth preparation, impression taking, provisionalisation, and final cementation and finishing.
The goal of the course is to provide participants with the following learning objectives:
Hands-On Exercises and Demonstrations
For over 30 years CEREC has pushed the boundaries of clinical excellence in restorative dentistry and technology integration. CEREC is the past, present, and future. This course is for clinicians who want to get the best out of their CEREC system or anyone considering incorporating this amazing technology into their practice. How to get beautiful fitting restorations? How to get tight but manageable contact points? How to make restorations drop right in with little adjustment? How to master tooth shape and shade so that whatever you do is invisible? How to master the surface characterization and ideal texture of anterior restorations?
Enjoy this session where we discuss tips and tricks to enhance your chairside restorations in an efficient and systematic way. We will address what makes a chairside restoration different from a lab-fabricated restoration and easy ways to overcome these differences.
In this session, the speaker will share with you an efficient method for reviewing CBCT scans and documenting relevant findings. He will show you various software tools that enhance CBCT scans to ensure optimal visualisation in the area(s) of interest, while clarifying which filters actually degrade image quality. A variety of pathology will be reviewed live, showcasing the techniques demonstrated during the session. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop computer so that they can follow along. Anonymised cases will be provided for the purposes of the demonstration.
This half-day workshop aims to provide dental teams with theoretical knowledge and practical techniques for modern methods of biofilm and stain removal and implant maintenance. It will assist the dental team in upgrading and updating the dental hygiene department through the integration of a systematic workflow using biofilm management devices.
This workshop will deal with the “Root-2-Crown” concept that will enable clinicians to provide a high level of care to their patients after endodontic treatment. It is a well-established fact that endodontic success can drop from 90% to 18% if the coronal restoration is poor or delayed.
The restorative concepts and materials discussed will enable a clinician to achieve more predictable long-term results in clinical practice. The presentation will be supplemented with a large amount of video material to illustrate the clinical use of the materials and techniques on patients.
This workshop will allow participants to fully immerse themselves into the digital workflow experience. The workshop will guide participants through the data acquisition and processing of CBCT & IOS. Using real clinical cases we will undertake surgical / prosthetic digital treatment planning. We will then examine the various outputs of digital planning including surgical template manufacturing and dynamic guided surgery to facilitate clinical delivery of the digitally planned case and potentially enable same-day implant surgery.
Nowadays the clinicians have at their disposal high-performance materials that can help them facing aesthetic and functional treatments using minimally invasive prosthetic techniques. This workshop will consider both prep and no-prep techniques for a perfect result in anterior and posterior areas.
Indications and limitations of prep and no-prep techniques will be clearly illustrated in order to guide the clinicians both for simple situations and complex rehabilitations in case of worn dentition, however using always minimally invasive procedures.
The learning objectives of the programme is to provide the participants with the didactic knowledge and technical skills in the following areas:
– Tooth Preparation
– Posts and Fibres
– The principles of the Class 4 restorations as it pertains to the direct restoration of the endodontically treated incisor (the direct layering protocol)
– Tips and Tricks to manage colour in non-vital teeth
• How to restore the endodontically treated molar tooth with direct composite techniques
– Tooth Preparation
– Use of post and fibres in the endodontically treated posterior dentition
– Restoration of the posterior endodontically treated tooth and cuspal overlays with direct posterior composite techniques
Hands-On Exercises and Demonstrations:
1. Restoration of the severely damaged endodontically treated anterior tooth with a direct post retained composite restoration
– Preparation of the post space and adhesive bonding / cementation of the aesthetic post
– Class IV filling replacement: wax up, silicone index, index cutting, layered reconstruction, shape correction, excess removal, polishing
2. Direct composite restoration of the endodontically treated molar with cuspal overlays
The aim of this workshop is to discuss the indications, advantages, disadvantages, efficacy and correct application of the different approaches, instruments, and materials for root debridement in initial as well as supportive periodontal therapy. One focus of this workshop will be the application of modern AirFlow devices as well as their integration in a modern Guided Biofilm Therapy concept. Participants of this workshop will not only get the theoretical background but also have the opportunity to try the discussed techniques and materials during a hands-on session on models.
