This lecture series was filmed at the British Society of Restorative Dentistry Spring Scientific meeting 2017

In this first two lectures, Dr Charles Goodacre covered the topic of digital complete dentures

Lecture 1. Computer-Aided Engineering of Complete Dentures and Implant Prostheses

Aims and Objectives:

  • Gain an insight into the first digital denture made
  • An overview of the 5 ways in which digital technologies can help fabricate complete dentures
  • An overview of the Avadent Complete Denture system that enables fabrication of complete dentures within 2 visits and the benefits
  • 5 methods for obtaining the clinical records for digital dentures

Lecture 2. Computer-Aided Engineering of Complete Dentures and Implant Prostheses

Aims and Objectives

  • An overview of the complete process of the complete denture fabrication process using digital technologies
  • An overview of the custom milled denture teeth from the AVADENT system
  • The Avadent protocol for immediate loading of Implant Fixed Complete Denture and how this process reduces appointments and provides benefits

Lecture 3. Incisal migration of soft tissue around teeth or implants by Dr Charles Goodacre

Aims and Objectives:

  • The causes of poor gingival responses during prosthodontic treatment
  • In this lecture Prof Goodacre stressed the importance of the contour, shape and smoothness of prosthodontic restorations on teeth and implants and how it can impact the soft tissues. He presents a number of clinical cases, highlighting how these factors had an impact on soft tissue. This lecture is very important to anyone who does regular prosthodontic work in the aesthetic zone as well as restoring of dental implants
  • The Benefits of the S shaped Cervical Contour for crowns
  • A series of case examples where overcontoured crowns can lead to periodontal tissue inflammation and how this can be improved and corrected
  • An overview of incisal migration of soft tissue in relation to dental implants

Lecture 4. Tooth Retention Through RCT or Tooth Replacement Using Implants or FPDs by Dr Charles Goodacre

This is a great lecture for those considering treatment planning. Saving or extracting teeth can be a challenging decision. Various factors need to be considered. In this lecture, Professor Goodacre considers so many factors when choosing tooth vs implants including survival rates, treatment fees/cost effectiveness, ethical considerations, approximation of the ideal, biological and mechanical factors, patient specific factors and other considerations.

The Overall AIM is to provide factors that are helpful in treatment planning on whether to extract or save teeth

The objectives are to discuss the following topics and gain information on these

  • A comparison of dental implants vs endodontics
  • A comparison of dental implants vs endodontics in the hands-on specialists and non-specialists
  • Success and survival rates of fixed partial dentures
  • Factors that lead to failure of fixed partial dentures
  • He considered treatment costs and ethical considerations
  • The benefits of maintaining teeth in terms of cost-effectiveness
  • The benefits of implants comparing to fixed partial dentures
  • The role of periodontal biotype on success
  • Predictable papillae preservation and data. How to get papillae infill and where to consider infill may not happen especially in immediate implants
  • Multiple adjacent implants and the difficulty of regenerating papillae
  • Should teeth be treated periodontally or extracted and be replaced with implants

Lecture 5. Communicating aesthetics by Julian Martin

Aims and Objectives

  • Gaining an understanding of communication with the team for aesthetics
  • Gaining an overview of the challenges of finding the correct aesthetics and identifying cases of challenge
  • Gaining tips on communicating aesthetics with the patient and the main tips to follow
  • How to use photos and records for communication tips

Clinical case discussion 1. This was an interactive clinical case discussion with a panel of restorative consultants and led by Dr Richard Welbury. The first case was one of tooth surface loss

Aims and Objectives:

  • Gain an insight into the various factors to think about in multidisciplinary planning in tooth surface loss cases

Clinical case discussion 2. This was an interactive clinical case discussion with a panel of restorative consultants and led by Dr Richard Welbury. The second case was also one of tooth surface loss

Aims and Objectives:

  • Gain an insight into the various factors to think about in multidisciplinary planning in tooth surface loss cases
