Additive veneers in multidisciplinary dentistry - Dr. Arturo Imbelloni

In recent years, a new trend has emerged that will not likely be reversed, the movement toward more conservative preparations, and even no preparation, for many aesthetic smile design cases. Dr. Imbelloni believes that this trend is here to stay as the patient, when given a choice, will always seek out more conservative alternatives. In the world of medicine, there are numerous examples of this steady migration toward less invasive procedures and dentistry is undoubtedly following the same path. Case selection for “prepless” veneers is critical, and clearly, additive-only restorations are not for every situation.

Aims and objectives:

Gain knowledge of additive veneers in multidisciplinary dentistry, taking into consideration:

  • Maximum efficiency, minimally invasive
  • Conventional prosthodontics
  • Additive prosthodontics, advantages, disadvantages
  • Treatment planning
  • Multi-disciplinary team
  • Orthodontics, risks
  • Enamel, dentin, composition, etching
  • Adhesion substrates, process
  • Preparation, subtraction, incisal reduction
  • Feldspathic, zirconia  

Elegant solutions in dentistry: New generation zirconia and the digital workflow - Daniele Rondoni

With the arrival of the digital protocol in dentistry there has been a big change regarding the workflow, for the introduction of new generation materials, as key to our work.

Nowadays the digital workflow is a simplification of the analogue work phases, and so we use materials such as zirconia, and multi-layered, more and more.

With the best and most versatile performance, it offers high-quality solutions but reduces manufacturing cost, favouring effectiveness and a convenient solution for patients.

Aims and objectives:

Gain knowledge of new generation zirconia and digital workflow, taking into consideration:

  • Material, durability, evolution
  • Temporary, prototype, morphology, colour, reaction of the tissues
  • Multi-layered zirconia, new generation
  • Micro-layer technique
  • Single unit, multi-unit
  • Digital workflow, digital morphology, milling, sintering, accuracy
  • Wear evaluation
  • Fluid ceramic, 3D

Vertical occlusal dimension with a holistic approach - Dr. Lukasz Lassmann

Most people misinterpret “holistic” as something corrupt or left-field.

But are we being comprehensive clinicians if we don’t look at the “whole" or "wholeistic" view? What about posture, C-spine, the airway?

We know about them - sure. But do we know how to diagnose, and plan, with them in mind? 

Aims and objectives:

  • What is OVD and how much can you increase it?
  • What are the positive, and negative, consequences of increasing OVD
  • The primary reasons for increasing the OVD
  • The history taking, and signs that lead to diagnosis of pain
  • How to work out how much OVD to increase

Aims and objectives:

  • Learn the diagnosis for gingival recession
  • Indications for treatment
  • Review the different strategies for management
  • Learn the principles of soft tissue aesthetics, soft tissue management & mucogingival surgery
  • How orthodontic treatment can facilitate treatment outcomes
  • The benefit of interdisciplinary case management
