Implant Dentistry the Digital Way - Expensive gadgets or real improvement?

Today, Digital Dentistry seems to increasingly replace conventional approaches in all aspects of the dental workflow. The speed at which Digital Dentistry has improved, from its introduction to dentistry to its current capability, is more than astonishing. These improvements involve not only the operating speed of modern digital devices, but also the impressive accuracy and increasing user-friendliness that has been achieved during the last decade. It comes as little surprise then, that digital applications and devices also found their way into Implant Dentistry. Today, its impact extends over the whole workflow of dental implants, from diagnostics to treatment planning to the design and manufacturing of dental restorations, prostheses and appliances. However, the pivotal question for each private practitioner is, whether these new devices and applications provide a real and clinically relevant benefit or constitute just expensive and fancy gadgets for the younger generation.

The aim of this presentation is to outline the integration of digital dentistry in modern implant dentistry and to evaluate and critically discuss its pros and cons throughout the complete implant workflow, from diagnostics, via treatment planning and guided surgery, to implant restoration. The clinical relevance and implications of each digital step will be discussed. Another particular focus will be crucial parameters for a predictable and successful 3-dimensional implant placement, that promotes both a functional and aesthetic restoration but also facilitates proper implant hygiene and maintenance. Thus, resulting in stable and healthy peri-implant tissues and long-term implant success.

Government Health Scheme Vouchers: Your responsibility and how to make the most of them

Government Health Scheme Vouchers are vital for providing essential healthcare to those in need, especially amid financial challenges. For practitioners, accepting these vouchers is more than fulfilling a duty—it's a chance to expand services and nurture community reputation.

Participation in these schemes can boost profitability despite lower reimbursement rates. Efficiency is key: streamline processes and invest in digital protocols. Focus on patient volume and retention through quality care and additional services. Negotiate fair terms and engage with the community to attract eligible patients.

Ultimately, embracing these vouchers is both ethical and strategic, ensuring sustainable healthcare access while fortifying a practice's financial health.

Digital Denture Characterisation

Regardless of how a denture is manufactured - either traditional, milled or 3D-printed - the aesthetics can always be improved by a number of means. Tooth position, shape and size pay an enormous role as well as tooth surface texture and of course colour effect enhancing using staining and glazing techniques. This talk will discuss getting the most out of your digital dentures and how to make them "pop" using a variety of methods and materials from different manufacturers and comparing and contrasting the same.

11.45 - 12.30 • Session 4

Accuracy for dental applications

What is accuracy? Have you ever seen someone claiming that their 3D printer is the most accurate or that the intra oral scanner is the best at scanning for the most accurate results? In this lecture the facts of how me measure accuracy, what can effect it and a series of studies presente demonstrating the effects of various manufacturing techniques or scanning types will be shown.

                  Zirconia - Raising the bar in a Digital World

                  Digitalization is changing dental technical working methods and procedures in the laboratory. New production processes and materials require new techniques and sound know-how.

                  Do you fashion the majority of your crowns with zirconium oxide? Do you have high expectations for the materials you use and the restorations you create? Are you constantly looking for new ways to achieve impressive natural-looking results with ease?

                  If that is the case, we invite you to discover the latest zirconia generation IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime Esthetic. Easy – economical – lifelike: It takes only a few steps to produce aesthetic monolithic restorations.

                  What you will learn from this lecture:

                  • Not all zirconia is the same
                  • Which material is best for the indication and technique
                  • Staining and layering technique when to use which material
                  • Florescence and why the Fluro glaze is important
                  • Aesthetic cases and what to look for

                  Demonstration
                  Are you constantly looking for new ways to achieve impressive natural-looking results with ease for Monolithic Zirconia Restorations? I would like to invite you to discover a simplified technique and process to optimize aesthetics. The concept of applying the infiltration technique can enhance any restoration.

                  While the primary goal when shading zirconia to achieve a standardized basic shade will include the Selective infiltration of accent shades to customize the framework. The advantage of the infiltration technique for accentuating the restorations with the accent colours ,value, chroma which are applied before the sintering process and thus creating different depth effect. Working with these material is time-saving and efficient .The high level of aesthetics – in terms of shade and translucency – of the pre-coloured material also saves time in finalization.

                  During the Demonstration you will learn:

                  • The technique of infiltration
                  • What equipment is required
                  • Which areas should you be concerned about
                  • Why some materials are not recommended

                  • Lecture

                  Most private dental practices talk about going digital but many of them don't know what to invest in, in what sequence and how to roll out new technology with maximum buy-in and impact.

                  In this talk, we'll discuss which technologies and digital workflows - both clinical treatment and practice management - can deliver the biggest gains and which ones fail. We'll discuss the cost - benefit ratios and deliver a practical guideline to optimise your digital investments.

                  11.45 - 12.30 • Session 4

                  12.30 - 13.30 • Lunch

                  13.30 - 14.15 • Session 5

                  Perfect DSD veneer preparations powered by ASIGA

                  • Lecture

                  Porcelain veneers are the stock-in-trade of most aesthetic dentists and this lecture will review how to utilise Digital Smile Design (DSD) to predictably design, prep and place veneers that will satisfy your most discerning patient every single time. An overview of current porcelain veneer protocols incorporating the latest DSD techniques will be provided with an emphasis on the use of preparation guides. The labial depth guide, incisal guide and vestibular guide generated by the DSD software based on your smile design and 3D printed in-house using a quality 3D printing system such as from ASIGA provide the bridge between your digital design and your final restorations.

                  14.15 - 15.00 • Session 6

                  Digital workflows for full arch implant-retained prosthetics

                  • Lecture

                  Full arch restorative cases using multiple implants to retain full span bridges, the so called all-on-X procedure, present unique challenges for clinicians. Accurately recording and communicating implant position to the laboratory in order to create the definitive prosthetic has presented particular challenges to the intraoral scanning systems currently in use, for example. In this session, Dr Yassmin will detail the procedure for using the Nexus iOS system that incorporates proprietary scan bodies (Nexus iOS Scan Gauges) together with AI technology to validate the accuracy of the intraoral scan in the first instance. The complete workflow will then be explained from treatment and surgical planning through to the production of temporary and definitive prosthetics using a range of technologies including DSD, VSD and exocad, all without creating a single model.

                  15.00 - 15.30 • Afternoon Tea

                  15.30 - 16.15 • Session 7

                  Fast and Furious - where do innovative materials fit in our dental market?

                  • Lecture

                  Speed sintering zirconia, milling pre-sintered/pre-crystallised ceramics, printed ceramic restorations, graphene-based polymers, 3D printed mouthguards and more! The adoption of digital dentistry in many practices and labs has led to amazing developments in the materials we use today. However, why should we care when our current materials work just fine? Should we be fixing things when they aren't broken?
