The direct injection technique: Creating beautiful forms with minimum effort and maximum reproducibility
Workshops Program
Wednesday 1st May
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
R8

New strategies of applying resin composites have arisen, making new techniques possible. Mock ups using bis/acryl, composite shells and injecting flowable composite. Originally, the injection technique had the disadvantage of having only one matrix, based on an analog wax up. This created a much more difficult excess removal than the modified version we are going to present. The course will help you understand the capabilities of these techniques, specially the newest version and will give you all the tools necessary to master them.

Learning Outcomes:
 
The participants will learn:

  • The potential, advantages and disadvantages of the injection technique

  • To differentiate which cases are suitable or not for the injection technique

  • How to prepare teeth previous to the injection

  • How to build a correct matrix

  • How to inject  the composite and cure it.

  • The classic analog and the digital modification for posterior as well as for anterior teeth.

  • The simple way, the layering modification and the “Crystal Shell” technique.

Lunch & Learn | Integrating conventional approaches and digital technology in smile design
Lunchtime sessions Program
Thursday 2nd May
12:10 PM - 1:40 PM

Every year we have the feeling that more and more new materials, equipment and techniques are developed. It is true that many represent an improvement to older options, but as clinicians we should not forget the core of “good dental practice”. Technology might help us in many fields, but is not magical. Proper knowledge of analog procedures is still mandatory to explore the new options. With this knowledge the clinician will be able to wisely choose new options that help us a lot with minimal extra effort and costs for our practice.

Learning Outcomes:

  • To learn when and how to use wisely some of the new technologies

  • To learn how important digital dynamic analysis is.

  • To learn how to diagnose the natural smile

  • To learn the limitations of modern CAD-CAM systemsTo learn how analog procedures can be integrated efficientrly in the digital era

The face and tooth integration in modern dentistry - new insight
Main Scientific Program
Thursday 2nd May
4:00 PM - 4:45 PM
HALL D

Traditional dentistry taught us about facial lines and landmarks in order to make the treatments more harmonic. Nevertheless new insights have arisen showing that harmony is achieved better by following natural imperfections than by forcing symmetry or average forms.
The lecture will show how to analyse dynamic smile patterns, how to choose the proper tooth forms and will propose a more organic method of analysing the face and the smile based on the newest publications.

Learning Outcomes:

  • The participants will learn about the importance of the dynamic smile in their treatments plans.

  • They will learn how to select tooth form

  • They will learn how to integrate digital tools in their traditional workflow.

  • They will learn how to integrate the natural asymmetries in their treatments in a more organic way.

Lunch & Learn | A new look at the comparative benefits of resin composite and ceramic restorations in the aesthetic zone
Lunchtime sessions Program
Friday 3rd May
12:10 PM - 1:40 PM

In most of the countries, direct restorations represent lower costs for the patients than indirect restorations. On the other hand, from the clinician point of view composites can be done with no preparation or small bevels, compare to more extensive preparations necessary for ceramic restorations. Nevertheless, they do have some advantages that should always be addressed in the decision making process.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn about how to bevel and if no bevel is possible in indirect restorations
  2. Learn about the possibilities of ceramic fragments, edge-ups or  partial veneers
  3. Learn about the importance of value and opacity for anterior restorations

Learn about new systems that allow us to be less invasive

Changing the paradigm in anterior restorations: Composites vs Ceramics
Main Scientific Program
Friday 3rd May
2:35 PM - 3:20 PM
HALL D

During recent years, novel resin biomaterials and clinical techniques have appeared. Nevertheless, the process of making final restorations is still tedious and time consuming; demanding highly specific skills from the clinicians. The wide array of options and techniques does not make the decision of the clinician any easier.

The lecture will focus in a simplified direct philosophy called the 3 x 5 and will give the insights necessary to decide when better go direct or indirect. In addition it will prove the relevance of value and tooth form in modern dentistry.

Learning Outcomes:

  • The participants will learn the potential, advantages and disadvantages of direct composites

  • They will learn when ceramic restorations represent an advantage

  • They will learn the simplified 3 x 5 technique

  • They will learn the importance of value and the form and contours of the restorations
