  • Lecture: ESTHETIC DIGITAL PROCESS: Lab side protocols
    The modern dentist who has decided to follow the path of digital dentistry obtaining predictable and constant results, in order to manage properly the complex cases he must know the potential that the dental softwares offer today.
    During the presentation a complex aesthetic case will be described.
    It will be shown how traditional materials, techniques and methods of communication between dentist - dental technician have been replaced with new innovative technologies and protocols of work, and how the results obtained by these processes are better of traditional ones.
  • Lecture: ESTHETIC DIGITAL PROCESS: Chair side protocols
    Technology role is to simplify the work of the dentist who has to meet the expectations of his patients from an aesthetic and functional point of view.
    The final challenge should be "to create prosthetic teeth that look natural like natural teeth".
    In order to obtain the best results from an aesthetic point of view, the modern dentist must know how to manage ceramic and the new materials, in particular on the frontal teeth.
    These presentations will illustrate work processes such as polishing technique, characterization technique, and cut-back technique, by which it is possible to obtain a good final results.

  • Lecture: 3D printing in the full digital workflow
    Trying to get around Digitalization of the dental workflow is becoming very difficult. The quality aspects of the digitalized treatment approach are becoming more and more apparent. Dental laboratories are up and running with CA Designing of crown and bridge work and frame works for removable dentures as well as CA milling and printing of these appliances. Analogue impressions are scanned in the dental lab and in this way placed in the digital environment. Digital implant treatment planning has been embraced by many working in oral implantology. Intraoral scanning gives dentists the possibility to get away from analogue impression taking and integrate the digital files into their treatment planning. The dental implant industry has providing restorative dentists with scanning abutments so they can take IO scans of the implants as well. Software is available for dentists using open scanning systems to go further and plan large fixed dental prostheses but also CAM these using milling and 3D printing technology. In this presentation the role of 3D printing in the digital workflow as it is available for dentists today will be discussed.

  • Lecture: Improving Planning and Predictability Using Digital Workflows in Ortho-restorative Cases
    Digital smile design and planning is a fast growing area of both cosmetic density and orthodontics and with increasingly IT literate patients it is essential that clinicians use digital planning to the full potential and also use the technologies to improve efficiency of their workflow. In addition, digital technologies can be used to assist and guide the patient in making informed decisions based upon greater accuracy of the predicted outcome.
    The lecture will explain and demonstrate how digital planning combined with an integrated digital workflow between clinician, laboratory and patient work in practice results in efficiencies in both time and cost.

    1. To understand the currents state of digital planning in orthodontics and restorative dentistry
    2. To understand how the use of a workflow between clinician and laboratory enables greater predictability of treatment outcome
    3. Realise the importance of using digital technologies in helping patient understanding of treatment outcome
    4. Be able to make use of digital workflow in patient management and hence improve predictability of outcome

  • Lecture: Improving patient care through modern technology
    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 efficiency, leading to improvements 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 Jürgen Feierabend from the South Tyrolean company Zirkonzahn, will explain and demonstrate its perfectly combined digital and analogue workflow. The Zirkonzahn CAD/CAM software has been developed with the aim to put together a software package in which all the existing modules are linked together to provide the user with a complete solution within a single software. By demonstrating the single software components and their distinctive features, Feierabend 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®, the appropriate device to record the authentic patient situation, creating a precise starting point for all subsequent steps. The PlaneSystem® captures and identifies the natural position of the maxillary arch, the individual occlusal plane and any associated natural asymmetries. 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, the dentist and the patient, since the tooth restoration can be realised based on the patient’s physiognomy, taking into account bone asymmetries and resulting muscular compensation.

    Feierabend will display further innovations achieved by modern CAD/CAM technology, show a range of material options and different patient cases, giving answers to the difficulties encountered during their planning and fabrication.
