"Longevity & Clinical Realities of High Strength Ceramic Restorations” (9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon)

The evolution of dental ceramics has revolutionized our ability to restore patients. Due to their preferred optical and biological properties, all-ceramic materials assessed to be the ideal prosthetic component to fulfill the requirements of tooth- and implant-supported restorations. But ceramics are limited by their brittleness. The long-term success of a specific ceramic material is related to micro-structural resistance against aging. High resolution contrast microscopy and SEM analysis allows to investigate the initiation of failure. Recently, yttrium-stabilized zirconium oxide is the preferred all-ceramic material for the fabrication of abutments and implant-supported crown and bridge work because of an increased flexural strength. Understanding of the preferred clinical application for each ceramic system introduces incredible new opportunities for the dental practitioner and might reduce the individual failure rate dramatically.
Learning Objectives:
1. Principles of all-ceramic materials - Clinical Realities.
2. Biomechanical limitations – what is essential for long-term survival?
3. Applications and challenges of zirconium-oxide.
4. How to avoid chipping and early failure.
5. Clinical survival rates – where to use which ceramic?

"Oral Esthetic Rehabilitation with Ceramic Veneers, Partial Coverage Restorations” (1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.)

The concept of acid etching porcelain and bonding to a tooth with an acid etch technique was first cited in the dental literature in 1975 with Rochette’s description of an innovative restoration of a fractured incisor. Since then, there have been key advances in the development of ceramic veneers and their fabrication and placement. The introduction of glass‐ceramic and oxide‐ceramic materials with enhanced flexural strength offered an alternative to feldspathic porcelain to fabricate dental veneers. The new ceramic materials allowed for extension of classic facial veneer preparation designs to more defect‐oriented partial coverage and full veneer preparations introduced by Stappert et al. in 1999. The new flexibility in preparation design based on enhanced ceramic material strength established ceramic veneers as valid alternative to full crown restorations in the anterior dentition. Anterior veneer restorations require on average only 17–30% coronal tooth structure removal when compared to 60–70% of full coverage restorations. As the demand for esthetic dental services continues to grow, the introduction of stronger indirect ceramic restorations offers new minimal invasive options for both anterior and posterior restorations.
Learning Objectives:
This lecture describes in detail the advantages and disadvantages, the indications and contraindications, and the techniques for using ceramic partial coverage restorations for anterior and posterior teeth, ranging from veneers to partial crowns. Avoidance of clinical ceramic chipping, and repair.

"Implant Prosthetic in Modern Dentistry: From Single Tooth to Full-Mouth Rehabilitation"

In the last 25 years implantology has taken a great stand into dentistry and nowadays most of the rehabilitations rely upon the use of one or more implants. But while at the dawn of implantology osseointegration was still doubtful and thus major focus was put on the implant survival, nowadays clinicians and especially patients, are much more concerned with the aesthetic outcome of the “third pair of teeth”. Therefore, it has become paramount for the restorative team to have a thorough knowledge and understanding of each single phase and to manage properly the aesthetic (both pink and white) as well as the function to preserve the survival of the implants in the long run.
COURSE OBJECTIVE:
At the end of this course the trainee will be able to approach the restorative procedures of singles as well as more complex cases starting from the impression to the final restoration delivery. Treatment sequence, tools and materials will be highlighted for properly managing the restorative phase of the implant cases.

"Esthetic Management of Restorations with Compromised Anterior Tooth & Implant in Private Practice"

In last decades, dental technology and material are rapidly improved. Along with those changing, we are handling esthetic dental treatment significantly different in private practice.
The treatment planning with severely compromised tooth structure, compromised implant position and soft tissue condition are always challenging situation. The goal of treatment should be design for either long-term or short-term success, either function or esthetic success. The criteria of the decision-making process by clinician with only surgical, only prosthetic or both surgical and prosthetic reconstruction, or including other procedures are very important.
This presentation focus on treatment planning, decision-making criteria, material selection, handling technique of materials in anterior treatment of compromised tooth and implant situation.
Reviewing clinical relevant literatures and multiple case presentations with both conventional and contemporary dental materials including temporary materials, technique are explained for the key of current treatment planning. The content of this lecture material is designed for private practice clinicians.

"The Art of Successful Soft Tissue Management

Advanced implant dentistry faces the challenge of tooth and implant restorations close to each other. To achieve esthetic satisfying results, an appreciable width and thickness of attached gingival is desirable around implants and teeth. Due to alveolar ridge defects, tooth extractions or previous restorations the soft tissue appearance is often compromised. Full thickness flap designs unveil their limitations when additional vertical or horizontal volume should be gained or if extended augmentation areas should be covered by soft tissue. Common surgical procedures result in an extension of mucosa up to the alveolar ridge and a displacement of the muco-gingival-line repeatedly. Different surgical procedures like apical reposition flaps or free gingival grafts etc are required to re-establish lost attached gingival and healthy soft tissue color. The knowledge of soft tissue management and the ability to choose the right surgical soft tissue procedure in a given situation creates the foundation for an outstanding prosthetic restoration.
