CAD/CAM & Digital Dentistry

Dear Colleagues of the Dental Team, As you all know, the 7th edition of the CAD/CAM & Digital Dentistry International Conference was held in October 2012 in Singapore. As you may expect, the event enjoyed the same success that we are all used to. We are very much thrilled by the grounds that our conferences are covering year after year. By now, all of us; organizers, sponsors, as well as speakers are very well known symbol of quality at the international level. It is our mutual cooperation that brought us to this level of professionalism. All of us put the interest of our participants as our top priority. Though the dental CAD/CAM industry has reached quite a very high level of development and became a major trusted player in Dentistry, it continues to improve on a fast pace. Statistics tell us that by the year of 2050, more that 50% of dental services will be done through CAD/CAM technology. This serves only to highlight the importance in keeping up with this fast moving technology through such highly specialized conferences. We will continue this unsurpassed cooperation to bring to our audience the most recent updates of technology in the CAD/CAM field with few "surprises " as well. See you in the Dynamic City of Dubai!

The Role of the Superstructure

Optimizing Implant Function and Esthetics at the Perio-Prosthetic Interface: The Role of the Superstructure Dr. Peter Gehrke, Germany With increasing surgical reliability of implant dentistry and documented high success rates the standards expected of implant-supported dental restorations are rising. Especially on the part of patients there is a growing desire for an esthetic solution equivalent to the appearance of natural teeth. The condition of the peri-implant soft tissues appears to be a critical determinant. The current presentation will address the relevant parameters influencing the final outcome of fixed and removable implant-supported restorations. A natural symbiosis of a functional and esthetic treatment approach, considering biological and restorative aspects, as well as provisionalization , abutment design and material characteristics will be highlighted. The reproducibility of newer indices allowing for a more objective appraisal of the esthetic short- and long-term results of various surgical and prosthetic implant protocols, and the influence exerted by the examiner’s degree of dental specialisation will be critically discussed.

Photography & Documentation

NEW YORK UNIVERSITY (New York City) COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY Continuing Dental Education - Current Concepts in American Dentistry Middle East Program 2012 - 2013 Photography & Documentation (10:00 – 12:00 and 13:00 – 16:00) Dr. Philippe TARDIEU Just making a click is by far not enough to make good intra-oral pictures! Being good in photography in an absolute necessity in dentistry today. Photography is fully integrated in daily practice. It is first used for diagnosis purpose but also for communication purpose with patients and lab technician. It is used for medico legal reasons and allows getting a clear view on our clinical results. This course is an introduction to digital imaging techniques. A full and clear review of the material to use will be done: criteria of selection’s criteria for the camera, the flash, lenses and the software to use to manipulate images. The camera settings will be explained to take intra oral and extra oral pictures. The image transfer and storage will be fully covered. And all kind of in-office use of pictures will be explained. A hands-on workshop will be done using your camera, Adobe Photoshop on participants’ lap-tops and using [email protected] software. Aim of the course: To understand how to manipulate a digital camera to make good quality intra-oral and extra-oral pictures. To know how to treat store and manipulate our patient’s images.

NOPREP Veneers, Technical Point of View

NOPREP Veneers, Technical Point of View (Dental Technicians Parallel Session at the 4th DFCIC) Aiham Farah, CDT Dental aesthetic is about much more than optimizing the dentition. It's about how a beautiful smile can enhance your personality, presence and charisma. Many people hesitate to consult a dentist about cosmetic dentistry due to a previous painful experience, now the NOPrep veneers are what we call an absolute painless dental aesthetic, because it requires no reduction of tooth structure and no shots of aesthetic. In addition to the fact that we have materials and techniques available to us that eliminates the need to prep. But never to forget that every technique has its limitations, what are those limitations? Where is the (added veneers concept) from all that? To prep or not to prep? Here is the key answer.

Dr. Umberto De Luca

7th CAD/CAM & Computerized Dentistry International Conference Dr. Umberto De Luca New Dental Hybrid Material in the CAD/CAM Technology and Its’ Opportunities for New Indications Back in 1997, a Siemens representative informed that there is a new device in Germany that is able to produce ceramic restorations chairside, without the need of conventional impressions. Without any further information, Jose Umberto and Silvio, his brother, travelled to Switzerland in order to participate in a lesson given by the creator of the technique in the University of Zurich, Prof. Moermann. Since then, they followed the technique. After the release of the CEREC 3D, it can be said with confidence that the technology has become a must-have in every dentistry office. As the technology evolved, VITA ZAHNFABRIK was always innovative with their blocks, the first block, MARKI and right after the MARK II bloc, which is used to these days, has evolved in both strength and aesthetics until the release of TRILUXE and REAL LIFE, which unquestionably meet all of the demands of modern dentistry. VITA will surprise the market with the launch of a brand newhybrid product that will, without doubt, change the course of dentistry. Therefore, do not miss the opportunity of learning more about the advances of this new technology. The Esthetic Limits of CAD/CAM Restorations Jose Umberto De Luca started his studies at the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro, obtaining his DDS certificate in 1978, working mainly with gold inlays, onlays and PFM for 18 years. In the year of 1997 he started using CAD/CAM technology as a participant of the course “CAD/CAM technology (Computer aided design – Computer integrated manufactory) in restorative dentistry, the CEREC method” at the Dental School of the University of Zurich, Switzerland. At that time, someone can imagine the difficulties to run the CEREC machine in BRASIL and how the results were coming out of that amazing but really tricky machine. As Dr. De Luca was getting confidence with the system, he started to give lessons and courses on the method and the principles of preparation and materials all over Central – and South America. Even knowing that the adhesive idea was introduced by Buonocore around 1955, at that time the process was still a little bit confusing with Silane, acid etch, moist or dry dentin, etc, but one point was clear: Adhesive dentistry was evolving rapidly. Two main incentives drove this evolution. Adhesive techniques combined with the use of tooth-colored restorative materials where and still are frequently requested by patients. They want us to restore their teeth not only anatomically and functionally, but also aesthetically. Although important improvements in bonding have been made in the last 30 years, note that the requirements of an ideal bonding system are quite similar to those indicated by Buonocore. But what about the materials? Are they following this improvement? Of course they are and if we talk about aesthetics, we have to mention VITA as one of the first whom came out with aesthetic blocks for the CAD/CAM technic. In the meantime a discussion started about the dental laboratories. Would that be the end of the lab work? Would the ceramist lose their artist work because of a computer? One thing has to be clarified, for the anterior region if someone wants to have color details as mamelons, mixed with translucencies effects etc. there is no question that a ceramist will be needed, but the question is: will these effects be visible by the patient?... www.capp-asia.com www.facebook.com/c appasiapacific  (Jul 22, 2012 | post #1)

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Eduardo Mahn

4th Dental - Facial Cosmetic International Conference Keynote Speaker: Dr. Eduardo Mahn New Indications in Aesthetic Dentistry: Closing Diastemas with Minimally Invasive Techniques (Part I & II) Classical dentistry is dealing with defects, caries, demineralized areas, discolorations or broken teeth after trauma. In such indications we are restoring damaged, infected or missing areas of the tooth structure. In order to achieve immediate success and long term survival we need to respect several biological rules and follow certain clinical protocols. Restoring the function was the priority and aesthetics was secondary. If at the end of the treatment the restoration looked nice it was always welcome. The above description fits well to dentistry during the last 30 years. But these ideas are not longer acceptable for many of our patients. In our competitive modern society it is considered a disadvantage to have “not nice looking” teeth. This means that whenever something happen to them (caries, trauma, insufficient form, proportions or alignment) the situation needs to be fixed… and in an aesthetic way! As a simple example, many patients have old anterior composites with an insufficient appearance and a diastema for years, they come to you for having them changed plus the diastema closed, and suddenly they do not accept anything but a perfect invisible filling! Others come for orthodontic treatment with too small teeth for their jaws, and after the orthodontic treatment they are not happy with nicely align teeth with spaces between them, they also want to have them closed! Fortunately the improvements in techniques and materials have been so great during the last years that we are in a comfortable position to offer the patients answers and predictable results for such cases.The lecture will focus in how to deal with diastemas in a simple, minimal invasive and predictable way, it will also give guidelines regarding the choice of materials, will present new digital diagnostic tools and show new prep-less composites and ceramics techniques, it will present a simplified layering concept and discuss the limitations of them. The aesthetic potential of ceramics and composites will be shown, the advantages of new materials and last improvements in their optical properties will be described. It will be based on many fully documented clinical cases in HD quality, with step by step procedures, showing what is really possible to achieve and the limitations of novel techniques. www.cappmea.com www.facebook.com/C APPMEA  (Jul 22, 2012 | post #1)
