Due to the changes in event dates, the organisers expect there to be changes to the current programme. We are happy to update that our valued conference sponsors have expressed their continued support for IDEM and would like to express our gratitude to them. Please check back at a later date for further updates.
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
