6 of the Best Lecture - Friday 8th November 2019

Graftless solutions to edentulous maxilla (Conventional All-on-4 & Zygoma implants) with immediate loading using a full digital workflow.

The edentulous maxilla is challenging to rehabilitate with implants when there is advanced residual bone resorption coupled with pneumatisation of the maxillary sinus. Traditionally, such cases were treated in multiple stages involving bone grafting, sinus augmentation, multiple procedures and prolonged treatment duration. In modern implant dentistry, these patients can be treated without these complicated time-consuming procedures. The modern approach is graftless surgery and immediate loading of fixed implant bridges. This lecture will also focus on incorporating a full digital workflow allowing faster, accurate and patient-friendly treatment.
Learning Outcomes:
- Indications for graftless solutions to rehabilitate the edentulous maxilla.
- Indications for All-on-4 and Zygoma implants.
- Immediate loading of temporary bridges.
- Digital workflows.

Getting Started with Digital Dentures – A Myth or Reality?

What we will cover: The evolution of prosthetics. What can be done digitally? How do we do it. The Digital Denture Evolution.

Advantages and disadvantages of digital.

Minimal Prep and Non-Prep Ceramic Restorations

All dental professionals today agree in the importance of preserving as much as possible of the patient’s dental structure, and at the same time guaranteeing the best aesthetic result for the longest period of time. This is undoubtedly possible since the available techniques allow us to manufacture extremely thin indirect restorations such as ceramic fragments and lens-contact veneers. This type of solution is considered the quintessence of dental ceramic restoration and at the same time has been neglected for so long, that today there is a very large and dissatisfied market waiting for our intervention.
Learning Outcomes:
- Appreciate and propose this type of bio-mimetic solution for aesthetic and functional purposes, when how and why.
- Treatment plan, from diagnosis to final photo.
- From bonding to polishing, step by step in order to achieve the best outcome.
- Recognise the limits … if any

Novel Strategies to Optimize Clinical Outcomes utilising the Invisalign System

Digital Technology is rapidly changing the way we practice dentistry and it can be overwhelming for dentists to keep up. We will look at how intra-oral scanning technology works and how we can utilise it in Invisalign treatment digital planning. It may simplify your everyday work flow to bring you optimal restorative and aesthetic outcome. We will also look at some novel uses for Invisalign in general practice.
Learning Outcomes:
- You will have a better understanding on how intra-oral scanning digital technology works to help give you a better restorative outcome.
- Learn how you can integrate Invisalign Aligner system into your practice and digital work flow.
- Use of Invisalign digital dentistry to achieve optimal restorative outcome.

What Clients Really Want

With change upon us like never before, ‘ordinary (in business) is no longer acceptable”. We look at what successful companies globally, are doing differently to drive effective business outcomes in an environment where the Digital Age is creating not only disruption, but uncertainly.

So how do we set ourselves apart from our competitors?
In this session, we highlight 5 key elements that clients are telling us are critical to driving favourable outcomes, commonly called Moments of Truths. Depth of Relationship remains critical, but what are the other key issues that drive advocacy and what are effective businesses doing in this space? Over 60% of clients will either leave their supplier or not contract their services as a result of ‘perceived indifference’. What impact does this have on businesses and how can we turn this around? This is a fast-paced
session with a number of take outs that can be implemented immediately. Standing still is no longer an option!

Dentin Conservation in Endodontics: Hope or Hype

Dentin Conservation and minimal intervention while performing endodontic treatment has gained importance in the last decade. The endodontic community is almost polarized about this concept. The literature on this topic is equivocal. Those who are in favour of dentin conservation are hopeful that it aids in long-term tooth retention, which is the goal of endodontic treatment. The literature shows that the extraction of endodontically treated teeth is usually due to structural failure of the tooth rather than endodontic failure. This clinical presentation will discuss the history, literature and challenges of dentin conservation to ensure a better understanding of modern concepts of endodontic treatment. The importance of new instrument designs and the role of CBCT to perform conservative endodontics will be discussed.
Learning Outcomes:
- Review of dentin conservation in endodontics.
- How to plan and perform dentin conservation in endodontics.
- Role of CBCT and microscopes in planning and executing conservative endodontic treatment.

6 of the Best Workshops - Saturday 9th November 2019

Step-by-Step Treatment Plan Analysis of simple and complex Invisalign Clinchecks in Slow Motion

Morning Session:
Invisalign cases from start to finish. From initial scans, receipt of first Clincheck back, thought process and why the decided to request certain modifications.

Afternoon Session:
Development and reviewing of the Clincheck treatment plan. Difficult cases, identifying cases that are less predictable in outcome and what to do with these cases. Recent developments, new technologies and how this impacts on Invisalign and orthodontic treatment planning and smile design. Case sharing and questions.

Course outcomes:
- You will learn about the mechanics of Invisalign tooth movement and what cases are suited to Invisalign.
- You will refresh on case submissions and cover in more depth Doctor preferences settings and how to use them for increase efficiencies in submitting your cases.
- You will generate ideas for Invisalign workflow. From patient interview to case acceptance and submission (this will allow you to consider and adapt if necessary, any ideas into your own workflow. This will be done through lecturer guidance and peer interaction).
- You will learn a thorough 5 step process of Clincheck review and what to look for when developing you Clincheck 3-D treatment plan.
- Tips and tricks when starting your case.
- What to do and look for when monitoring and what strategies to implement when things do not go as planned.
- Learn more about specific case through case sharing.
(Participants are encouraged to bring as least one case they would like to share).

The Complete Digital Workflow for the Single Implant: A to Z

Digital planning and guided implant surgery is almost a requirement in modern implant dentistry. This digital workflow will not only improve the restorative outcome and predictability, it will also allow maximum safety and precision. An immediate restoration can be done easily on the same day without having to spend much chairside time. There is a bit of learning curve at the start but eventually it will save valuable chairside time.
Learning Outcomes:
- 3D implant positioning, guided surgery, immediate loading.
- Digital implant planning using Dental Desktop software (3 shape).
- Digital workflow of fabricating in-house or lab-based crowns.
- Guided implant placement using Osstem One-guide kit
