  • Lecture: Digital Biomimetics – Concepts for Predictive Treatments
    In the digital world currently two megatrends exist – one is the digital revolution in technology – the other one is the minimal invasive “close-to-nature-dentistry”. On the first glance, this two developments seem to contradict each other. However looking closer dentists, dental technicians and patients can find an enormous potential of synergies: Digital dentistry offers great tools, to get closer to nature-imitating restorations and to respect biological principles. The presentations discusses the application of up-to-date technology, like intraoral scanners, face-scaners, and polymer materials and introduces new concepts and their integration into our daily work- and life environment. One emphasis on which the presentation focuses is the extensive win of information and analysing methods due to digital technology that leads to more predictability regarding the treatment outcomes.

    Objectives:
    - Learn about trueness and precision in digital treatments
    - Learn about the advantages of the Munich Implant Concept
    - learn how digital technology supports biomimetic treatment concepts.
    - Learn about the advantages in handling complex situations using digital technology

  • Lecture 1: Bond it or Lose it – How to fix Prosthetic Restorations in Daily Practice
    The reliable bond to enamel achieved with the adhesive luting technique has greatly impacted preparation designs resulting in significant preservation of tooth structure. The conservation of both enamel and dentin has become an important issue for dentist and patient. The combination of highly translucent all-ceramics and resin composite cements has opened up a new dimension in esthetics fulfilling the highest patient demands. Clinical data confirm the long-term success of all-ceramic restorations.

    However, adhesive luting techniques require a careful and meticulous clinical protocol. This stage can be considered very critical for a successful outcome and needs as much care as the preceding stages. Once a restoration is cemented there is no scope for modification or repeat. The clinician needs to establish a lasting bond to the tooth surface (enamel, dentin) as well as to the prosthetic restoration (e.g. glass ceramics, Lithium-Disilicate, Zirconium Dioxide, metal alloys). Specific guidelines must be carefully followed in dealing with these clinical challenges.

    The lecture will provide an overview on the various cementation techniques and materials available today. It is the goal of this lecture to enable the clinician to apply the new techniques and materials correctly in order to achieve long lasting and
  • Lecture 2: How to treat CAD/CAM Restorations Surface
    The adhesive luting technique allows the modern clinician to place esthetic CAD/CAM restorations with significant preservation of tooth tissue. The clinical challenge with placing non-retentive restorations is not only to optimize adhesion to the remaining tooth structure (enamel, dentin) but also to create a durable bond to the restoration in order to avoid retention loss and damage to the prosthetic work.

    There are numerous restorative materials available today from which the clinician can choose – depending on the clinical situation and the patient`s demand: Glass ceramics, Lithium-Di-Silicate, Zirconium Dioxide, composite and precious/ non-precious metal alloys. The ideal surface conditioning method for each of these restorative materials widely differs and can be at times confusing. The dentist needs to have a profound knowledge to carry out this important clinical step correctly in order to achieve long-term clinical success.

    This lecture will provide the clinician with an overview on the most ideal clinical surface conditioning methods for all the restorative materials available today. In the light of the latest scientific research and clinical outcomes step-by-step recommendations are presented that can be immediately implemented into daily practice.

  • Lecture: Assessment of Marginal Bone Stability around Dental Implants using Digital Radiography (CBCT)
    As we are in an era of digital dentistry , for the dental surgeon the most important digital tool is the cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). The use of CBCT in oral surgery demonstrated its advantages which include high resolution images, easy handling and accessibility as well as low radiation dosage. We have come to rely on it as a pre surgical assessment tool for all of our implant cases. Prior to digital radiography bone sounding and more aggressive tools were used to assess the residual ridge shape and bone defects. With the simplicity of this technology we can accurately measure the anatomy of the alveolar bone at the implant site. Having marginal bone stability and a thick buccal plate of bone surrounding the dental implant increases its survival rate and improves esthetics by decreasing the chances for soft tissue recession. In this presentation we will demonstrate the accuracy of CBCT in detecting the marginal bone level around implants that have been followed up for a minimum of 5 years.

    Objectives:
    1 - Understanding the added benefit of using digital radiography as a measuring tool for marginal bone levels around implants in three dimension.
    2 - To explore the factors that aid in maintaining marginal bone levels around short press fit implants.

  • Lecture: Golden Rules for Successful Digital Restorative Dentistry
    Introduced for over thirty years to dentistry, digital marks a major breakthrough in dental practices as well as in dental laboratories. It is becoming an indispensable tool for a dentistry of quality and precision involving the different dental specialities. The digital stream is used for producing dental prostheses, thus replacing the conventional impression and simplifying or eliminating a number of steps. Different prosthetic reconstructions in restorative dentistry can be performed by Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (single crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers). The success of the Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing CAM depends on several clinical parameters such as case selection, preparation, control of the oral environment, bonding and finishing of the restoration.

    Several systems exist, each having its advantages and disadvantages. Intra oral scanning is the starting point of the digital workflow and it may take several minutes if both arches are to be fully scanned. Many factors can affect the scanning procedure quality and duration and thus the final result.

    The purpose of this lecture is to present through well documented clinical cases, the main parameters that ensures a successful digital scanning procedure for an optimal result.

  • Lecture: Composite in CAD CAM technology - a new Challenge
    Since the late 90s, based on scientific data’s, it is known that Composite can be used for CAD CAM technology. In certain cases It shows several advantages compared to ceramic.

    In the last 20 years it was difficult to establish composite based materials in reason of low acceptance. Today high compressed Composite material is available, whereby the physical and chemical properties can compete with those of ceramic. Additionally the optical properties may have advantages. Scientific data’s and clinical aspects will show all these advantages with a new designed CRIOS Composite - block material. Topics: Material properties: e-modulus, wear, fracture resistance, marginal adaptation, opacity & translucency, radio opacity. color, polish ability. Clinical: Milling process, Wear resistance, Interface, crowns on implants, bevel preparation, bruxism, minimal vertical clearance, non vital teeth, repair, characterization, color management.

  • Lecture 1: All Ceramics and CAD/CAM Technology: An Ideal Combination for Greater Esthetic Success
    Esthetic restorative procedures have become increasingly popular among today’s patients. As a result, the demand for all-ceramic restorations has risen greatly. By utilizing innovative ceramic components, such as lithium disilicate, we can offer new esthetic possibilities for creating exceptional true-to-nature restorations. The additional use of CAD/CAM technology can significantly improve the overall esthetic outcome by adding predictability to the team work, resulting in better efficiency and superior long term success.
  • Lecture 2: Lithium Disilicate Glass Ceramics: Selecting the right Ingots for Ideal Integrations and Maximum Esthetic results
    In the past few years, patients have become increasingly interested in esthetic restorative procedures. As a result, the demand for all-ceramic restorations has risen greatly. By employing innovative ceramic components, such the new e.max lithium disilicate ingots, we can offer new esthetic options for creating exceptional true-to-nature restorations even when conditions are not ideal for an excellent outcome. However, the characteristic that make new materials more integratable from an aesthetics perspective, the translucency of the substructure, is also the most controversial limit. This feature adds a new evaluation parameter which is essential for all projects that involve the use of metal-free as a prosthetic solution, especially in the anterior sectors. The need for an exchange of information between the clinician and the technician are demonstrated by means of the step by step documentation of several clinical cases involving the anterior area.

  • Lecture: Complete 3D Virtual Planning of Orthodontic Treatment using CT Cone Beam and Intraoral Scanner
    The Aim is to illustrate features and advantages of complete 3D planning using CT Cone beam for orthodontic diagnosis and treatments.

    New generation of CT Cone beam for dentistry allows to visualize and analyze 3D images of jaws, teeth and soft tissues of the patient.

    After a single exposure it is possible to generate a 3D cephalometric tracing and a setup of the malocclusion. With the same system it is also possible to generate setup models, simulating not only the movements of the crowns but especially of the roots, with respect of the real bone limits of the patient.

    The intraoral scanner allow to obtain solid casts of the dental arches of the patients, by using a cad-cam technology and stereo-litographic machines. With specific procedures and dedicated softwares it is also possible to produce intraoral orthodontic appliances, without having any stone model.

    On the digital setup of the malocclusion can be virtually positioned the brackets on the teeth, in order to make a customized transfer system for indirect bonding, that is very important in lingual orthodontics.

    Complete 3D planning of orthodontic treatments using CT Cone Beam and intraoral scanner

    Objectives: to illustrate features and advantages of complete 3D planning using CT Cone beam for orthodontic treatments. Materials e Methods: 16 patients with age between 18 and 45 years old were selected for orthodontics. New generation CT Cone beam and scanners for dentistry allow to visualize and analyze 3D images of jaws, teeth and soft tissues of the patient, after a single exposure, consenting to generate a 3D cephalometric tracing and a setup of the malocclusion too. Results: the same digital data, processed by dedicated softwares, allow to obtain solid casts of the dental arches of the patients, using cad-cam technology and stereolitographic machines, without neither any traditional impressions. With the same system it is also possible to generate setup models, simulating not only the movements of the crowns but especially of the roots, with respect of the real bone limits of the patient. On the digital setup of the malocclusion can be virtually positioned the brackets on the teeth, in order to make a customized transfer system for indirect bonding or to construct different appliances.

    The new possibilities offered by CT Cone beam and intra-oral scanner allow to make a full and accurate 3D planning for orthodontic treatments, from diagnosis to indirect bonding, using a single x-ray exposure for the patients.

    This conference will give the background of orthodontic digital technology and provide the current "state-of-the-art" of 3D orthodontics.

Tif now lectures nationally and internationally and has had many articles published on all these subjects.
  • Lecture: ABB - from the Simple to the Interceptive Restorative
    Why treat anterior crowding? Straightening teeth is not just an aesthetic treatment because teeth continue to move throughout ones’ life, so all patients with even mild anterior crowding are at risk of increasing crowding, occlusal instability and uneven wear. Making adult patients aware of these problems and offering interceptive orthodontic treatment is a great service for patients and simple for GDPs to provide. Tif will talk about how simple anterior tooth alignment combined with bleaching and bonding, can be one of the most minimally invasive ways of improving smiles in a more progressive ethical way.
    The lecture will cover the basics for simple tooth alignment planning, consenting patients with the latest techniques in digital analysis and planning. He will also cover the use of modern composite materials for simple non invasive edge bonding that can also improve the patients function, guidance and prevent natural, ageing, occlusal changes and the use of simultaneous bleaching technique. The concept of Progressive smile design (PSD) through ABB (Alignment, Bleaching and bonding) can mean that any dentist in any practice can offer safe, aesthetic patient led treatments.

    Implementing ABB (Alignment Bleaching and Bonding) into general practice

    - Know the protocols and planning of simple tooth alignment
    - Understand the process of simultaneous tooth whitening
    - What edge bonding materials are available?
    - Understand the practical use of ABB interceptive restorative dentistry.

  • Lecture: CAD/CAM technology, easier, faster and better than ever...
    All-ceramic restorations provide better esthetics and biocompatibility than metal ceramics. However, many early all-ceramic systems were plagued by relatively low fracture strengths and an uncertain long-term clinical behaviour. Current high-strength ceramic materials provide fracture strengths and fracture toughness up to ten times higher than that of traditional ceramic materials.

    Traditionally dental lab technologists have manipulated metals and ceramics using centuries old methods. These methods are time-consuming, sensitive and unpredictable. With multiple steps, many variables and a need for innate hand-eye coordination skills. For many years, CAD/CAM dental restorations have been considered novel and on the cutting edge of treatment technologies. Even today, only a small percentage of practicing dentists use CAD/CAM generated restorations in routine practice.

    However, in the last years we have seen a strong new interest. We are opening the doors to a new era in Dentistry. CAD/CAM technology is not only here to stay—it will be the standard in dentistry in the very near future.

    The lecture will analyze the history and the improvements in CAD/CAM technology. The properties, advantages and indications of new blocks are going to be discussed and new cementation techniques with the latest improvements are going to be presented.

  • Lecture: The digital workflow
    Virtual planning and designing of dental prosthesis has become an indispensable factor in modern dentistry and dental technology. The usage of new technologies results in greater accuracy, speed and efficiencies leading to improvement in patient care. Furthermore, computer-based guided implant surgery is minimally invasive and requires a shorter chair time and fewer appointments than traditional methods.

    In his lecture MDT Clemens Schwerin from the South Tyrolean company Zirkonzahn, will explain and demonstrate Zirkonzahn’s recently upgraded CAD-software. The software has been developed with the aim to put together a software package in which all the existing software programmes are linked together to provide the user with a complete solution within a single software.

    By demonstrating the single software modules and their distinctive features, he will describe new possibilities in treatment planning that allow bringing the patient data from the analogue into the digital environment.

    In this context, he will mention the PlaneSystem® for capturing and identifying the patient individual occlusal plane and any associated natural asymmetries with the aid of the Natural Head Position (NHP) and the ala-tragus plane. Together with the Face Hunter 3D facial scanner used for photo-realistic 3D digitisation of patient faces, it guarantees a planning reliability for the dental technician and the patient, as the tooth restoration can be realised based on the patient’s physiognomy, taking into account bone asymmetries and resulting muscular compensation.

    Schwerin will display innovative solutions achieved by modern CAD/CAM technology, show different patient cases and different material options and explain eventual encountered difficulties during the realisation of the cases.

  • Lecture: How digital a smile can be? SKYN concept
    The world definitely switched to digital solutions. And dentistry is not staying aside. The preciseness, fastness, control of the CAD/CAM procedures are amazing.
    But in the process of creating a smile there are much more than scanning and milling. To create natural beauty we need to go much deeper. How to achieve naturally looking restorations? How to incorporate the act of creativity into a digital project? How to use technology to create unique masterpieces, not serial production?
    Can we eliminate some of our routine procedures such as Wax-up and replace them by direct SKYN Mock-up? And what would be the benefit for our patient and for us?
    Should we imitate nature, or should we copy it?
    SKYN Concept is all about digital expression of a naturally created perfection.

  • Poster Presentation: Biomechanical behaviour of all-ceramic crowns based on different stress analyses
    The trend for development of all-ceramic crowns is a field of constant investigation. High strength zirconia core can be manufactured through CAD/CAM technology and subsequently veneered conventionally. While zirconia provides strength, the clinical success of these restorations has been hampered by fractures within the veneering porcelain. The focus of the studies was on the framework design and how different designs may influence possible biomechanical failures, using varied stress distribution analyses. For the experimental analyses different posterior teeth were chosen in order to simulate the biomechanical behaviour of these teeth restored with zirconia - all ceramic crowns. Static structural analyses were performed in order to calculate equivalent and principal stress distribution. Under the same loading conditions, the stress distribution patterns for the zirconia all-ceramic crown using differential stress analyses exhibited similarities, only the values were different and they should be reported to the Yield, respective tensile strength of the materials, and also design parameters. The present study suggests that varied simulation methods are promising to assess the biomechanical behaviour of all-ceramic crowns.
