Lecture: Symplexity in Dentistry
The guidelines of modern restorative dentistry are adhesion and minimum invasiveness:
• Composite materials are now leading on the market as a permanent and universal restoration solution: there is no treatment planning which does not include the use of composite materials as for sealing, anterior or posterior restoration.
• The perfect knowledge of the advantages and limits of these materials is fundamental for all dentists: a superficial approach to the use of composites may lead to failure and very long chair-work times.
• To know composite materials, nowadays more than ever, means to understand their practical application, to choose the ideal material on the market under the mechanical and aesthetic point of view, to understand when to choose indirect rather than direct technique, to evaluate the use of composites not only in the conservative field, but also in the prosthetic one, both for provisional and permanent solutions.
• All in all, it means to properly plan the patient’s treatment, focusing on the quality of its final result and the working time to reach it. Unfortunately sometime seems to be really difficult.
• Symplexity is the philosophy "How to create something difficult in a very easy way"
• Aim of the lecture is to show, according to the literature and last materials, in how to obtain high quality restorations in a predictable and repeatable way.

Lecture 1: To bleach or not to bleach: all the modern techniques of dental bleaching in association with prosthetic treatments.
Nowadays the clinician is faced with the difficult challenge of covering discoloration sometimes quite severe. Currently we can use extremely predictable techniques of dental bleaching, allowing sometimes to avoid the covering discolored elements, achieving excellent results in terms of aesthetics and durability.
The choice of extremely versatile products, together with the use of appropriate techniques, facilitates the clinician in cases of discoloration of medium severity.
In contrast, in more complex situations, which require changes in shape, color and position, it is possible to use high-performance ceramic materials, in order to perform high aesthetic rehabilitations, however using minimally invasive procedures.
Lecture 2: Prep vs. no-prep veneers: indications and limitations.
Nowadays the clinicians have at their disposal high-performance materials that can help them facing esthetic and functional treatments using minimally invasive prosthetic techniques. This lecture will consider both prep and no-prep techniques for a perfect result in anterior and posterior areas.
The different types of ceramic materials will be analyzed in depth and indications will be given on how to chose the ideal ingot and the correct protocol of cementation, especially in case of thin veneers.
Indications and limitations of prep and no-prep techniques will be clearly illustrated in order to guide the clinicians both for simple situations and complex rehabilitations, however using always minimally invasive procedures.

Lecture 1: DSD or wax UP?
The main purpose of this lecture is to give a brief overview of the most popular digital smile design (DSD) software and compare their benefits to the use of wax-up.
We all like to make beautiful smiles and if we had a system that could help is communicate our ideas and the possible end result to the patient – we would likely pay a good sum of money for it. Software companies and progressive and innovative dentist around the world have already figured this out and are flooding the market with all types of DSD-software. So how do we navigate in this market and find a suitable program that is easy to use, looks good, works efficiently and comes at a fair price?
There is not a simple answer to that, because we all have different ideas, wishes, demands and patients. There is not one perfect system, but we will take a closer look at 9 different systems.
After this lecture, you should have better insight into DSD and clear idea where to look if you would like to expand your work with creating beautiful smiles.
Lecture 2: Long lasting smiles - but how long?
The main purpose of this lecture is to discuss the dilemma in the longevity of advanced cosmetic dentistry and a population that lives longer and longer.
We can create almost any smile on any patient it is only a question of time and money, but with todays technology – every thing is possible. But how do we secure the long-term success of our work and how do we point out those patients who most likely will get into trouble?
This lecture will give you food for thoughts and at the same time encourage you to help out the most difficult patients and get amazing results – just by introducing a simple way of risk assessing your patients.
A beautiful smile can change peoples life – but if not planed well a new smile can cause headaches, chipped ceramic, fractures roots, infections, TMD, perio and the list continues.
Maybe less is really more?

Lecture: Aesthetic "MI" caries management - the contemporary clinical approach to best practice.
Prof. Avijit Banerjee, the renowned international expert researcher, clinician and lecturer in Cariology & Operative Dentistry from the UK’s leading Dental Institute in King's College London, will stimulate the participant to re-think and seriously question the appropriateness and validity of the traditional principles and practice of operative caries management still taught and practised around the world. The surgical approach to excising all carious tissue before placing a larger than necessary restoration is now questioned and has been proved to be biologically detrimental to the long-term success of the restored tooth-restoration complex in patients' mouths. With the development of high quality adhesive aesthetic materials using chemical bonding technology to seal caries-affected tissues, it is now accepted that a much more conservative approach to caries management is the appropriate method to handle cavitated caries lesions presenting in patients. This contemporary selective, minimally invasive aesthetic caries management rationale will be explained in this presentation, using scientific and clinically evidence based guidance. The use of modern aesthetic adhesive materials requires a different, perhaps more technically demanding minimally invasive surgical skill-set and this too will be highlighted and illustrated with clinical tips of how to optimise their use in daily clinical practice for the best and most reliable long-term outcomes.
The objectives of this presentation will include:
1. An understanding and appreciation of the minimally invasive operative management of caries.
2. An understanding and appreciation of the chemistry and clinical handling of modern aesthetic adhesive restorative materials used to restore cavities and maintain the viability of the tooth-restoration complex.
3. To be made aware of the postgraduate training opportunities available in this field – flexible-learning masters (MSc) in Advanced Minimum Intervention Dentistry (AMID) offered by KCL.

Lecture: Supportive periodontal treatment
Supportive periodontal treatment is an integral part of periodontal therapy. Supportive periodontal treatment is usually started after completion of active periodontal therapy and continues at varying intervals. Equally important is the extent to which the patient cooperates with the clinician so as to enable him to keep a periodic check on the stability of active periodontal treatment. Thus, patient cooperation is termed as patient’s compliance. Therefore, both the supportive periodontal therapy and patient’s compliance are of critical importance to the survival of the dentition. Keywords: Supportive periodontal therapy, Patient’s compliance, supervision, dental hygienist
The therapeutic objectives of supportive periodontal therapy are:
1. To prevent the progression and recurrence of periodontal disease in patients who have previously been treated for gingivitis and periodontitis.
2. To prevent the loss of dental implants after clinical stability has been achieved.
3. To reduce tooth loss by monitoring the dentition and any prosthetic replacements of the natural teeth.
4. To diagnose and manage, in a timely manner, other diseases or conditions found within or related to the oral cavity.

Lecture: Fast & Good in direct restoration: decisional criteria
In daily practice, composites are the materials most commonly used for restorative dentistry: we use them for preventive seals, micro-invasive restorations, build ups and complex, direct and indirect restorations in the anterior and posterior sections.
Recent product developments, combined with clinical research into stratification, now make it possible to utilise new evolved composites with excellent characteristics from mechanic and aesthetic point of wiew.
It is however, a common complaint among colleagues that the techniques of layering seem to be rather complex and it is difficult to make the right colour choice: paradoxically, they say that the appearance on the market of sophisticated materials, designed to give ever better results in the medium or long term, only makes it even more difficult to make the correct decision, and takes much more chair time.
In this lecture, the author would like to discuss these topics and make suggestions which aim to give high quality and predictable results every day, both from an aesthetic and clinical point of view with undeniable advantages for ourselves and for our patients.

Lecture 1: Biological Indirect Restorations: Conserve to preserve
With the development of dental adhesives and adhesive luting agents, together with the development of stronger all porcelain restorations, there has been a shift in clinical dentistry to a more conservative treatment model. Traditional indirect restoratives required aggressive preparation designs that lead to the sacrifice of healthy tooth structure to establish adequate retention. Dr van Lierop will explore the modern preparation principals of “Bio-Substitutive Dentistry”. Using simplified adhesive techniques to limit the amount of healthy tooth structure loss during indirect posterior restoration design. Identifying techniques for preparation and cementation that allows every clinician to incorporate biologically conservative processes into their daily practice.
Participants should understand:
- Why go conservative?
- What is the ideal preparation?
- The Bio-Substitutive model
- Simplified cementation techniques
