Conservative Management of Tooth Surface Loss

Sold out!
9.30am - 4:30pm
Dr Didier Dietschi

In this lecture Dr Dietschi will cover the management of tooth surface loss cases. He will encover how to conservatively manage these cases in various situations of mild, moderate and severe toothwear. He will cover the practical tips and which materials to use in which situations

Aims and Objectives:

To gain an overview of conservation rehabilitation of tooth surface loss via case-based discussions

Learning outcomes:

Identification of key factors in tooth surface loss cases that can enable conservative rehabilitation and management:

  • Occlusion and functional factors identification
  • Lab or direct techniques and how to choose which option
  • Tips on management and bonding

Tooth wear represents a frequent pathology with multifactorial origins. Behavioural changes, unbalanced diet, various medical conditions and medications inducing acid regurgitation or influencing saliva composition and flow rate, trigger tooth erosion. Awake and sleep bruxism, which nowadays are widespread functional disorders, induce attrition. It then became increasingly important to diagnose early signs of tooth wear so that proper preventive, and if needed, interceptive-restorative measures are taken. Such disorders have biological, functional and also aesthetic consequences. Following a comprehensive clinical evaluation, treatment objectives, such as a proper occlusal and anatomical scheme as well as a pleasing smile line, are usually set on models with only anterior teeth or full mouth waxup, depending on the severity of tissue loss. Based on the new Vertical Dimension of Occlusion (VDO) set on the articulator, combinations of direct, semi-direct and indirect restorations (using composite resins or monolithic high-strength ceramics) can help to re-establish anatomy and function. The use of adhesive and ultra-conservative techniques has proven its potential, in particular for the treatment of moderate to advanced tooth wear. A modern approach to treat tooth wear shall involve a specific and detailed treatment planning involving its aetiology, risk factors control and the biomechanical status of each tooth to be treated.

This program will review recent knowledge and clinical concepts related to various forms of early restorative interventions (using adhesive techniques) and their potential to restrict on-going tissue destruction and restore an attractive smile.

General Practitioner with special interest in ortho-restorative dentistry

Orthodontics is one thing, understanding where to place and restore teeth for occlusion, function and the best aesthetics is another.

This workshop is designed to help you understand how to plan and perform the steps that can create magical, functional smiles where ABB can be used not only to improve appearance but to improve function, guidance, and gain better long-term occlusal stability.

During this workshop, you will learn hands-on techniques that will allow you to carry out ABB predictably, covering the basics of Simple Edge Bonding via the reverse triangle technique. Tif will also cover hands-on techniques to show how the Dahl principle works for direct restorative treatment as a direct splint and to gain space and in orthodontics to place retainers with a functional safer outcome.

The workshop will also cover the concept of digitally planned aesthetic tooth shaping for space creation and far more beautiful results via a complete digital workflow. It will describe how landmark points and correct analysis can guarantee no risk of flaring and total unrivalled control of the anterior occlusion and canine guidance and will also discuss restorative sequencing for cases involving orthodontics, crowns and veneers.

Tif will also demonstrate many cases and long term follow up of restorative and orthodontic cases.

Components:

    Hands on- Reverse Triangle Edge Bonding and polishing Hands on - Landmark points Hands on – The Dahl Principle Hands on - Aesthetic Tooth Shaping Advanced diagnoses – Changing your daily patient exam Anterior occlusal planning Anterior Guidance, Envelope of function and orthodontics Communication with patients Dahl principle- the science and evidence Dahl management- natural and assisted equilibration Advanced retention management

An Introduction to the Bioclear Method for Monolithic, Superior & Aesthetic Composite Restorations

12 out of 15 spaces left
9.30am - 4:30pm
Dr Claire Burgess

This Bioclear Method Introduction course is for all dentists who wish to advance their clinical skills with modern resin dentistry. The Bioclear Method offers a unique and cutting-edge alternative to traditional direct composite restorations. The course introduces the key stages of the Bioclear Method which includes Biofilm removal, anatomical Mylar Bioclear matrices and the use of ‘injection moulding’ 3M Filtek composite placement techniques.

Background: Direct composites are underappreciated in today’s world of implants and computer-assisted ceramics. Posterior tooth preparations have not been reinvented from the 1890 G V Black models. Those preparations no longer have a place in today’s composite dentistry. Dentist and inventor Dr David Clark founded Bioclear in 2007. He has created a new system for a modern approach to restorative dentistry. The Bioclear Method provides the latest, most progressive products and techniques evolving from the traditional preparations, and anatomical matrix systems, for anterior and posterior composite restorations. The method gives dentists the tools and equipment to allow for longer lasting, stronger, and aesthetically superior composites, with the ultimate aim to improve patient Oral Care.

Composite can be the least invasive restorative option, producing the most natural and wonderfully aesthetic of all restorations.

Participants will perform anterior and posterior practicals to experience injection moulding. They will create restorations with ideal margins, rounded emergence profiles, and mirror smooth finishes. The Posterior Class II practical demonstrates how to predictably achieve good inter-dental contacts. The Anterior Class IV demonstrates how to achieve good isolation and emergence profile. The Black Triangle Practical demonstrates the technique applied to measure and predictably close black triangles.

The course utilizes HeatSync heaters, Diamond wedges, Twin Rings, 3M Filtek Supreme XTE and One Bulkfill composite materials with different types of Bioclear Matrices.

Aims:
By the end of the day delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the principles of the Bioclear Method
  • Demonstrate Class IV, Black Triangle Closure restorations using the Bioclear Method
  • Understand skills to achieve high quality Class II restorations

Objectives:

  • Receive an update and hands on evaluation of modern matrices, wedges and separators
  • Discover heated composite
  • How best to combine flowable and liquefied paste composites and what is the injection moulding technique
  • Solutions to avoid the most common mistakes that lead to less than satisfactory results when performing Class II restorations.
  • Methods for predictably closing Black Triangles

Outcomes:

    1. Understand the principles of the Bioclear Method 2. Be able to understand the Bioclear Biofit posterior and anterior Black Triangle Matrix selection and adaptation to achieve good interdental contacts/emergence profiles. 3. Be able to understand Heating and injection moulding of composite materials 4. Be able to understand Biofilm removal 5. Be aware of the Clark 2-step Polish technique to achieve good contacts 6. Be able to understand how to predictably produce longer lasting, stronger composites.

Composite Veneers

Sold out!
9.30am - 4:30pm
Dr Dipesh Parmar

With the growth of social media, the demand for composite veneers has increased dramatically as an alternative to ceramic veneers for minimally invasive smile makeovers. It is widely accepted that the aesthetic and mechano-physical properties of ceramic are superior to that of composite resin, however, most often at the cost of healthy tooth tissue, creating a difficult decision between the two materials for many dentists and patients. This full day lecture and hands on will outline diagnostic thought processes and operative techniques to maximise aesthetic and functional outcomes of direct composite veneers.

Educational Objectives

  • Case assessment and treatment planning for composite veneers
  • Material science and selection to optimise aesthetics and function
  • Monochromatic versus polychromatic layering techniques
  • Freehand versus index-guided techniques
  • When, where and why to use opaquers
  • How to handle resin interproximally to create tight stain-proof contacts and anatomical emergence profiles
  • Anatomy of anterior teeth • Contouring and finishing restorations to create form and texture
  • Polishing restorations to impart long-term gloss and lustre

Complete Dentures

12 out of 15 spaces left
9.30am - 4:30pm
Dr Riaz Yar
Specialist in Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics

Complete dentures are an aspect of dentistry which is taught insufficiently at undergraduate level. This compounded by the lack of courses in the postgraduate arena. I’m sure most dentist’s make a little prayer before seating that upper denture or even cross their legs and fingers and close their eyes just waiting for the denture drop as soon as the patient speaks. Why should it be so stressful.

The day is based on providing solid basic principles in complete denture fabrication focusing on correct diagnosis, impressions, bite registration, trial insertion and definitive insertion with aftercare. By the end of the day you will be armed with useful tips and skills to aid you. Following a good protocol makes life easier and hopefully more predictable.

Aims:

  • How to take excellent impressions
  • How to record accurately the inter-arch relationship
  • How to choose the shape and size of tooth and speech changes

Objectives:

  • To Understand the importance of accurate impressions
  • To provide a basis for trouble shooting and to know what to do and when.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Correctly manage complete denture patients and their expectations
  • Advocate assessing complete denture patients in a structured protocol
  • Modify current practice in relation to best clinical guidelines
  • Identify factors which cause problems and how to solve them

How to shape anterior teeth to morphology and aesthetics

8 out of 15 spaces left
9.30am - 4:30pm
Dr Jurgita Sybaite

Synopsis
You went to numerous composite courses and your composites still don’t look right? Your patients ask for extra-white composite veneers and you feel bad that they look too artificial? You put so much effort in your crown and veneer preparations and the final outcome is not pleasing you? You make your own temporary crowns and veneers and struggle to make them look natural?

Does that sound familiar?

It’s not another composite course that you need. And most likely you don’t even need a better technician. All you need is to understand smile aesthetics, morphology of anterior teeth and have the skill to master the form and the function! The same skill can then be transferred to your composites, temporaries as well as crown and veneer work.

Dr Jurgita will guide you through the process of becoming a true master of anterior teeth. Six anterior composite veneers will be shaped to morphology to demonstrate how even monochromatic composites can look natural and aesthetic. You will be guided through the practical process of designing the smile and shaping teeth to correct anatomy and symmetry. You will then learn the protocols of achieving secondary morphology as well as the texture. Finally, finishing and polishing protocols will be covered to give your composites the final touch of perfection.

The objective of the course is to provide you with an invaluable skill of understanding aesthetic perception and the ability to reproduce it on any material of your liking. You will be given the recipes of designing, shaping, finishing and polishing of anterior teeth.

Endodontics 101: back to the future

14 out of 15 spaces left
9.30am - 4:30pm
Claudio Farnararo and Sanj Bhanderi

In the last few years, we have heard about minimally invasive dentistry. The common point is tissue preservation, preferably by preventing disease from occurring and intercepting its progress but also removing and replacing with as little tissue loss as possible.

This concept can embrace all aspects and fields of our profession. Today all three main phases of modern Endodontics )access, opening, shaping and obturation) can be managed minimally invasive. Although on these issues there is often disagreement and their application turn out to be empirical and subjective.

The authors will explain the rationale behind their choices and will give a predictable and reproducible protocol to reach the goal of being effective an at the same time minimally invasive in all steps of endodontics, access opening, shaping and obturation.

To gain an overview of conservation rehabilitation of tooth surface loss via case-based discussions

Learning outcomes

Identification of key factors in tooth surface loss cases that can enable conservative rehabilitation and management:

  • Occlusion and functional factors identification
  • Lab or direct techniques and how to choose which option
  • Tips on management and bonding

Tooth wear represents a frequent pathology with multifactorial origins. Behavioural changes, unbalanced diet, various medical conditions and medications inducing acid regurgitation or influencing saliva composition and flow rate, trigger tooth erosion. Awake and sleep bruxism, which nowadays are widespread functional disorders, induce attrition. It then became increasingly important to diagnose early signs of tooth wear so that proper preventive, and if needed, interceptive-restorative measures are taken. Such disorders have biological, functional and also aesthetic consequences. Following a comprehensive clinical evaluation, treatment objectives, such as a proper occlusal and anatomical scheme as well as a pleasing smile line, are usually set on models with only anterior teeth or full mouth waxup, depending on the severity of tissue loss. Based on the new Vertical Dimension of Occlusion (VDO) set on the articulator, combinations of direct, semi-direct and indirect restorations (using composite resins or monolithic high-strength ceramics) can help to re-establish anatomy and function. The use of adhesive and ultra-conservative techniques has proven its potential, in particular for the treatment of moderate to advanced tooth wear. A modern approach to treat tooth wear shall involve a specific and detailed treatment planning involving its aetiology, risk factors control and the biomechanical status of each tooth to be treated.

This program will review recent knowledge and clinical concepts related to various forms of early restorative interventions (using adhesive techniques) and their potential to restrict on-going tissue destruction and restore an attractive smile.

The severely worn dentition - longterm outcomes of minimally invasive full mouth rehabilitations. The Geneva concept

12.30 pm to 1.15 pm
Dr Dr Irena Sailer

Synopsis

Patients with severe wear of the tooth substance due to dental erosions or functional abrasions have a become a common problem in the daily clinical practice. One major problem of this pathology is that the patients are frequently of very young age when they need to be treated to protect the remaining tooth substance. Erosions due to acidic soft drinks lead to a reported prevalence of 30-40% of teenagers with exposed dentin.Furthermore, other reasons for erosions or abrasions are observed, due to bulimia or bruxism.

The main treatment approach in these patients is to restore the worn teeth as minimally invasive as possible, yet, as durable as possible at the same time. Ceramic or composite occlusal and facial veneers may be considered to rebuild the lost tooth substance. But what is the longevity of these recent types of restorations? The lecture will give an overview of the current knowledge about the minimally invasive, adhesive full mouth rehabilitation of patients with severe tooth wear.

Objectives

  • to learn about the incidence and the prevalence of pronounced tooth wear
  • to learn about the treatment options and the approach of full mouth minimally invasive rehabilitations of severe wear
  • to discuss the current status of knowledge on the longevity of these rehabilitations

Direct composite restorations: current trends and future perspectives

3.15 pm to 4.00 pm
Dr Dr Marleen Peumanns

During the last 25 years there has been a real evolution in adhesive dentistry, by which the number of treatment possibilities has expanded seriously. Initially, direct composite restorations were only indicated for simple restorations where enough of the natural tooth structure was left to serve as a reference to make a nice esthetic composite build up. Nowadays the clinical indications for direct composite restorations are stretched towards more complex situations: direct composite crowns, treatment of generalized tooth wear and even replacement of missing teeth. Although, it is more difficult for the dentist (from a practical point of view) to obtain natural looking large direct composite restorations with a good marginal adaptation, there is a high patient demand for this kind of moderate esthetic treatment because of its more favorable cost. At present, evidence based approval is missing. Nevertheless, clinical experience shows that placement of extreme direct composite restorations is justified in controlled clinical situations. The clinical performance of these restorations will be determined by the patient factor, the operator, the materials and maintenance of the restorations.

The Lifetime patient - who should we be treating?

4.15 pm to 5.00 pm
Dr Tif Qureshi

This lecture will look and question some of the traditional pathways of problem/ sales- led cosmetic dentistry. Are we focused on treating the right patients?
There is an argument that cosmetic dentists take far more risk by treating patients not known to them with treatments that the patients don’t really understand the benefits of, other than aesthetics.This lecture will explore the idea that using a longer term approach to patients, and via relation- building, more treatment can be carried out on patients who are better educated ?
Tif will cover some of the diagnostic processes you can use to identify the collapse of the dentition, how to communicate these with your daily patients and how to treat these at an early stage simply, affordably and non invasively using methods such as the Dahl principle.

Much dentistry is also carried out too late- by the time it is identified, too much damage is done for many patients to be able to afford the optimal solutions. Arguably no patient should ever need a full mouth rehabilitation, if enough dentists had the confidence to treat patients sooner.
This lecture will also show how a good orthodontic and occlusal scheme go hand in hand- so correctly planned orthodontic set ups are essential for functional success.
He will look at cases treated over 25 years and the approach he has taken that can be applied to any practice which focuses on prevention of wear and maintenance of function and aesthetics.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  • Appreciate the importance of treating patients over their lifetime- have an understanding of the Dahl Principle
  • Identify toothwear and functional changes due to tooth movement and employ digital analysis in treatment planning and case acceptance
  • Describe tooth alignment, and bonding as a comprehensive approach to offering patients improved aesthetic and functional outcomes.
