IDEM 2022: 7 - 9 October 2022

Technology is shaping the future with essential information and innovative ideas. The orthodontic field, with hardware, software and humans combined, is rapidly changing, probably faster than at any time in its history. If you believe that people are the most valuable asset to your business, then you have to communicate, plan, and be consistent. 

Learning Objectives:  

  • Understand the digital flow with clear aligner therapy 
  • Evaluate critically case selection 
  • Develop your skill set to communicate with colleagues and patients 
  • Interpret predictability with digital orthodontics 
  • Recognize the importance of retention 

With increasing demands by patients for aesthetic and functional materials, it is imperative for today’s clinicians to understand the diversity of materials available as well as the clinical indications and limitations in practice. The application of composite resin in restoration of teeth can be a rewarding treatment option providing conservative and economical solutions for our patients. Dr. Ho will share step-by-step procedures allowing the participant to master direct resin restorations. This course is a mixture of lecture and workshop giving attendees practical hands-on experience. Attendees will take home techniques learnt and immediately adopt these to their practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • To perform predictable adhesive procedures
  • Understand the selection of shade for different materials.
  • Describe the optical behaviour of teeth
  • Utilise different opacities of composite resin to sculpt a multilayered restoration replicating natural aesthetics
  • Visualise the anatomical form and morphology of teeth
  • To learn simplified and predictable techniques in direct placement
  • Optimal posterior contacts with correct contours
  • Be able to finish and polish composite resin to reveal a lustre-like finish

Dental Implants are no longer perceived as metal constructions passively anchored in bone. On the contrary, implants are shown to be biologically active systems, which constantly interact with human tissue and microbes, supporting function and aesthetics in a delicate balance between biology and technology. It is exactly this interrelation between living tissue and precisely constructed biomaterials that determines long term success or complications. In no other part is this interrelation more crucial than within the Supracrestal Complex.   

Possibly one of the most complex man-made ecosystems, the Supracrestal Complex is the tiny space defined by the cortical Marginal Bone (apically) and the first couple of mm of the implant prosthesis exposed in the oral environment (coronally). It’s no more than 200 square mm, but this tiny space packs 3 out of the 4 tissues of the human body, at least 3 mechanical constructions (implant, abutment, abutment screw, prosthesis), more than 300 types of human cells and countless numbers of bacterial species. 

The Supracrestal Complex is a true “cyborg” organ: it includes all 3 key players: Human Tissue, Mechanical parts and Bacteria in a constant dynamic interplay. As recent studies have pointed out, this tiny space is the source of the most common implant long-term complications of both the biological and the technical type. Proper design coupled with a careful individualized maintenance scheme and daily practice of oral hygiene from the patient are the keys to ensure long term successful clinical outcomes! 

In this presentation, we will identify the interactions that take place in the Supracrestal Complex, we will discuss the latest evidence of design features and conditions that give rise to the most common problems and finally identify the strategies for prevention or early identification of Mucositis and Peri-implantitis.  

Learning Objectives:

  • What is the Implant Supracrestal complex and what are the key elements and design features with clinical importance
  • How the design of the Implant-prosthesis -abutment complex can predispose to or protect from biological complications and peri-implant tissue inflammation
  • How can we devise individualized maintenance strategies and use professional and patient driven maintenance to ensure long term success and health of the peri-implant tissues 

The dental implants penetration rate into the dental industry has been increasing at an exponential rate over the last 20 years since its inception nearly 60 years ago. However, the technology of implants, techniques and how we deliver care have been evolving and is now at an extremely exciting era.

With the advancement of technology, this lecture will discuss how it has changed the practice of immediacy. Has it really improved our way of practice? Is it time to jump in and invest into technology? What are the main benefits and how do we find balance? The differences of the traditional and the digital way of practice will be illustrated in this lecture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the differences between digital workflow and traditional workflow on immediacy
  • Learn how to incorporate digital dentistry into your practice for implant dentistry
  • Learn the clinical steps to practicing immediacy with a digital workflow

Successful long-term results in oral implantology rely on a solid treatment plan and the application of rational surgical and prosthetic concepts. Guided implant placement integrates the digital transition in implant surgery; accuracy and predictability highlights digital implantology as a powerful and indispensable instrument for the contemporary clinical practice. Guided surgery is predictable and faster to execute; additionally, it provides a very comfortable recovering period for our patients. This lecture aims to highlight the effects of digitization on various aspects of prosthodontic treatment and the advantages it has over conventional techniques, thus focusing on reproducible digital implant concepts for optimal surgical and prosthetic long-term results.

Learning Objectives:

  • This presentation will highlight the principles of guided implantology, various stages of the protocol, as well as advantages and limitations of guide manufacturing
  • Selecting the virtual implant position, length and axis will be discussed
  • Clinical guidelines on the performance of CAD/CAM monolithic implant-supported ceramic restorations, from single tooth restoration to cross-arch, will be extensively discussed

Designing and creating Smiles involves certain attitude, technical competence, artistic ability and intuition. It necessitates the development of skills to balance illusion with the reality to attain the highest level of clinical success. Some restorations we do look great and attractive than some, even though the work was technically good. Of all the procedures necessary to accomplish better results, it is important to understand the architectural development and the fundamentals of creating a pleasing restoration. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn to distinguish between a laminate and a veneer and when and how to opt for a laminate or veneer in a given situation. 
  • Learn how to do a multi-chromatic laminate/ veneer ad to create illusions by shading and shaping. 
  • Learn to finish and polish the restoration for the desired result. 

Emerging evidence points towards significant interrelations between the condition of the peri-implant tissue and the implant-abutment-prosthesis complex. A new paradigm is essential, where the peri-implant tissues will be analysed in close interrelation with the implant, abutment and prosthesis complex, under the presence of oral biofilm. The aim of this course is to make the participant familiar with the concept of the “Implant Supra-crestal Complex” (ISC) and describe the critical elements that define it as a unique anatomic, and functional system of human tissues, mechanical components and oral bacteria / biofilm.

The course reveals recent evidence to identify the impact of design features on both short-term clinical outcomes, as well as on the long-term health of the peri-implant bone and soft tissues. Prosthetic-driven implant placement is the prerequisite for the proper design of the ISC, which in turn can indirectly influence the structure and dimensions of the peri-implant soft tissues. Design features of the implant-prosthesis abutment complex such as the Emergence Profile (EP), Emergence Angle (EA) and Cervical Margin (CM), as well as the design of the implant-abutment and abutment-prosthesis junctions and their location in relation to the tissues of the ISC can have significant impact in the maintenance of stable and healthy peri-implant tissues in the long term.

At the end of this course the participant will be able to understand how to properly manage the ISC in order to establish the foundation for long term stability and reduce the incidence of cases affected by peri-implantitis.
