Clinical Solutions for Complex Esthetic Adhesive Rehabilitations using Adhesive Dentistry

Novel adhesive techniques and bonded restorations are able to provide patients, clinicians, and dental technicians with treatment alternatives that until recently would require invasive approaches and sacrifice of pristine dental structure. Through microscopically interaction between biomaterials and dental structure, highly-esthetic and long-lasting clinical solutions can be attained while simultaneously preserving the integrity of the enamel and dentin. The adhesive revolution has overturned established dogmas and concepts by advancing our profession with groundbreaking ultra-conservative philosophies that supported by the sealing and reinforcement of dental tissues. However, as newer adhesive dental materials and technologies are introduced at a very fast pace, it is essential that clinicians and dental technicians become familiar with their indications and limitations to provide the best restorative strategy for each individual patient. This presentation provides a systematic and scientific approach for selecting esthetic treatment modalities using adhesive techniques and CAD/CAM materials based on original research data with special emphasis on minimally-invasive adhesive techniques for materials design and selection.
At the end of the presentation attendees will be able to:
1) Understand challenges related establishing a stable adhesive interface
2) Choose adhesive strategies for different clinical situations
3) Understand the advantages and limitations of current in-office CAD/CAM materials
4) Understand new preparation designs for esthetic restorations
5) Understand the advantages and limitations of different dental materials for esthetic restorations

Exploring Esthetics and Function in Complex Rehabilitations – The Restorative Approach

Digital technologies offer access to more diagnostic information and enable a higher predictability. With the transfer into monolithic polymer materials innovative options for the clinical evaluation of esthetics, phonetics and function are available. CAD/CAM-fabricated full-anatomic splints allow to exploring the final treatment goal in reversible test drives. Based on removability of the splints, surgical, periodontal, endodontical and restorative pretreatments can be integrated in this period. The transfer into definitive restorations can be divided into multiple treatment steps, segment-by-segment, minimizing risk factors of complex rehabilitations.
Attendees will learn:
1. To differentiate pretreatment options with CAD/CAM-fabricated polymers.
2. To understand material selection criteria to ensure durable CAD/CAM-fabricated temporaries
3. To identify the treatment steps for the transfer into definitive restorations.

Move it or remove it

Orthodontics is going through a technological revolution. During the last 10 years there have been more technological developments than in the entire history of our profession. One of these rapidly evolving areas is three-dimensional imaging. These changes have a direct effect on diagnosis; treatment planning; knowledge generation; treatment implementation; design and fabrication of appliances; communication; marketing; interdisciplinary interaction; and education in orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. Orthodontics is a key component during interdisciplinary diagnosis and treatment planning. In this presentation you will be exposed to situations where orthodontics and orthognathic surgery are the most conservative approach for preservation of enamel. Remember that sometimes you can either move it or remove it.

The techniques for correction of single anterior missing teeth

In the last 4 decades esthetic dentistry has been identified by patients as a profession capable of correcting and creating attractive smiles.  New materials and techniques have advanced the art of creating esthetic restorations and better anatomic smiles. Still, the creation of single anterior restorations is far more difficult than recreating the entire anterior segment.
The presentation will present the reconstructions of a single anterior missing a tooth, by matching the anatomy, dimension, and color for creating an esthetic and strong restoration. The new materials available today provide a larger array of materials and techniques to fulfill the patient’s needs.

Course objectives:
1. Attendees will refresh their concepts of anterior restoration
2. The presentation will review ideas for creating long lasting single restorations
3. Certain clinical ideas will be provided in detail to ensure success with restorative procedures.

Current Approaches in the Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning of Prosthetic and Orthodontic Patients

In many partially edentulous patients requiring prosthesis and osseointegrated implants, orthodontic treatment is indicated to reposition natural teeth. This may be important to correct the sagittal, vertical and transverse positions of the teeth, to improve masticatory function, to create the necessary space for restoring the M-D dimension of the crowns and to obtain a satisfactory and natural looking esthetic outcome. Osseointegrated implants, as well as non-integrated mini-implants or temporary anchorage devices (TADs), can be used as anchorage to carry out the planned orthodontic movements, especially in those patients with many missing teeth, and to support temporary crowns in edentulous areas. The treatment of such patients implicates a complete diagnosis, careful planning and an efficient line of communication between the orthodontist and the prosthodontist. This lecture will illustrate the variables that should be taken into consideration when a combined ortho-implant-prosthetic treatment is necessary. Several clinical cases will help demonstrate the decision-making process.

Treatment of esthetic failure around implants

The recession of the buccal soft tissue margin is a frequent complication of well integrated dental implants. The appearance of metallic structure or even their transparency through the thin buccal soft tissues are common reasons for patient aesthetic complains. Moreover, bad implant installation frequently results in excessive apical dislocation of the buccal soft tissue margin of the implant supported crown. Soft tissue plastic surgical procedures and bilaminar techniques in particular, can be successfully used in combination with a pre and postsurgical prostethic approaches to increase the volume of the interdental soft tissue, to treat buccal gingival recessions and soft tissue dehiscence around dental implants and to provide the new implant supported crown with an esthetic transmucosal emergency profile

B.O.P.T: NEW APPROACHES IN FIXED PROSTHESIS
BOPT (Technique of biologically oriented preparation) is a simplified prosthetic procedure that allows intervention in cases already treated with prostheses, without multidisciplinary interventions. New concepts will be examined: controlled invasion of the groove, emerging profiles of adaptation, differentiated embrace that are part of the technique itself. Cases will be presented step by step with long-term follow-up, demonstrating the stability of the aesthetic results. The concepts of the technique B.O.P.T. They were also transferred to the implant field with the creation of vertical milling abutments. The consequent thickening of the soft tissues allows to obtain a greater stability of the same ones and a better esthetics in the marginal zone. The subsequent evolution of these concepts was the realization of a vertical component transmucosal implant: the PRAMA.

Interdisciplinary approach: the daily challenges

Obtaining a functional and aesthetic result in dentistry, goes through a comprehensive treatment and sometimes a multidisciplinary approach. The challenge of creating a natural appearance both in natural teeth and in implants, depends to a large extent on the orthodontist-restorer-surgeon-technical laboratory knowledge and understanding in all phases of the treatment. This presentation will not only deal with the systematic step by step to solve aesthetic problems but also the necessary communication among all professionals in the multidisciplinary approach of complex cases. Combined clinical techniques will be focused in order to achieve predictable results through the preparation of provisionals, a critical element for gingival integrity and oral health and excellence in the final aesthetic result.

Monolithic implant reconstructions - the keystone to advances in CAD/CAM technologies
The recent digital technology offers numerous new and efficient options for restorative dentistry. Within digital dentistry the optical imprisoning is the first step towards a digitalization of the patient’s intraoral situation. The resulting digital file is then used for the virtual planification and the virtual design of reconstructions, which thereafter can be milled out of prefabricated blanks of different materials with aid of CAD/CAM systems. The digital systems available today offer numerous advantages, like e.g. the precision of the reconstructions. A high number of studies has demonstrated good accuracy of the current subtractive manufacturing, i.e. the computer-aided milling or the grinding of ingots. More recently, additive procedures have been introduced. Stereolithography, laser sintering or printing of materials like wax, resins or metals has shown to be even more precise than the subtractive manufacturing. Finally, the „digital workflow“, is not only interesting for the fabrication of dental reconstructions but also for a better patient/dentist communication.

Long term Esthetics Growth effect on implant treatment planning

What should we do with the edentulous space in the esthetic zone with young or adult patients. Causes: Dental agenesis, ankylosis, trauma, and other pathologies.¿ Is the implant the best solution ? ¿ Which factors should be taken into consideration? : Age, sex, smile and face type.
We will present several cases to illustrate different situations and results.

Implants in the Aesthetic Zone. Decision making.

During the last 30 years placing implants we have had to update our decisions to be able to solve the increasingly demanding challenges to achieve an aesthetic long term. There have been many discussions about what is the best time to place the implant: deferred implant, immediate implant, age of the patient, stabilization of peri-implant tissues, etc. Through a series of cases we will discuss all these issues.

Exploring new ideas with implants in the esthetic zone – The Soft Tissue Approach
The soft tissue management around implants in the esthetic zone has changed tremendously in the last years. For many years the quantity of the tissue around implants in the esthetic zone was the bottom line. In the last years another important issue came in the play: namely the quality of the tissue. Therefore, we need to reconsider the surgical approaches in this delicate area. During this presentation the new thinking about esthetic will be demonstrated. In addition, new surgical ideas will be discussed and will be depicted in videos and clinical pictures.
Attendees will learn:
1. To define the goals of implants in the esthetic zone.
2. To identify the problems with implants in the esthetic.
3. To understand new surgical procedures to achieve the new goals.

Long term Esthetics Growth effect on implant treatment planning
What should we do with the edentulous space in the esthetic zone with young or adult patients. Causes: Dental agenesis, ankylosis, trauma, and other pathologies.¿ Is the implant the best solution ? ¿ Which factors should be taken into consideration? : Age, sex, smile and face type.
We will present several cases to illustrate different situations and results.

 

Implants in the Aesthetic Zone. Decision making.

During the last 30 years placing implants we have had to update our decisions to be able to solve the increasingly demanding challenges to achieve an aesthetic long term. There have been many discussions about what is the best time to place the implant: deferred implant, immediate implant, age of the patient, stabilization of peri-implant tissues, etc. Through a series of cases we will discuss all these issues.

Anterior and posterior restorations: the chairside CAD/CAM experience

Today’s dentist has a wide choice of restorative materials available when replacing missing or damaged tooth structures.
Since introduction in dentistry of composite resins, those materials have undergone a tremendous development and their adhesive properties on both enamel and dentin have been constantly improved, allowing a more conservative approach during the tooth preparation. Patients’ demands for a more aesthetic and metal-free restoration on posterior and anterior teeth increased during the last decade focusing the interest of the dental profession towards aesthetic restorations with composite resins.
The continuous improvement of the digital CAD-CAM technology is revolutionizing the dental profession in both laboratory and dental office.
Today is possible with the chair-side CAD-CAM restorations to restore teeth in a single session saving time for the patient and dentist as well.
Numerous type of glass ceramic and composite block are nowadays available; partial and full crown restorations can be fabricated directly in dental office by the dentist.
However, it is vital that the treating clinician have a thorough understanding of the principles that lead to a successful outcome.
Naturally appearing and problem free outcome can be achieved if certain rules are followed by a conscientious operator.

Clinical Solutions for Complex Esthetic Adhesive Rehabilitations using Adhesive Dentistry
Novel adhesive techniques and bonded restorations are able to provide patients, clinicians, and dental technicians with treatment alternatives that until recently would require invasive approaches and sacrifice of pristine dental structure. Through microscopically interaction between biomaterials and dental structure, highly-esthetic and long-lasting clinical solutions can be attained while simultaneously preserving the integrity of the enamel and dentin. The adhesive revolution has overturned established dogmas and concepts by advancing our profession with groundbreaking ultra-conservative philosophies that supported by the sealing and reinforcement of dental tissues. However, as newer adhesive dental materials and technologies are introduced at a very fast pace, it is essential that clinicians and dental technicians become familiar with their indications and limitations to provide the best restorative strategy for each individual patient. This presentation provides a systematic and scientific approach for selecting esthetic treatment modalities using adhesive techniques and CAD/CAM materials based on original research data with special emphasis on minimally-invasive adhesive techniques for materials design and selection.
At the end of the presentation attendees will be able to:
1) Understand challenges related establishing a stable adhesive interface
2) Choose adhesive strategies for different clinical situations
3) Understand the advantages and limitations of current in-office CAD/CAM materials
4) Understand new preparation designs for esthetic restorations
5) Understand the advantages and limitations of different dental materials for esthetic restorations

Current Approaches in the Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning of Prosthetic and Orthodontic Patients

In many partially edentulous patients requiring prosthesis and osseointegrated implants, orthodontic treatment is indicated to reposition natural teeth. This may be important to correct the sagittal, vertical and transverse positions of the teeth, to improve masticatory function, to create the necessary space for restoring the M-D dimension of the crowns and to obtain a satisfactory and natural looking esthetic outcome. Osseointegrated implants, as well as non-integrated mini-implants or temporary anchorage devices (TADs), can be used as anchorage to carry out the planned orthodontic movements, especially in those patients with many missing teeth, and to support temporary crowns in edentulous areas. The treatment of such patients implicates a complete diagnosis, careful planning and an efficient line of communication between the orthodontist and the prosthodontist. This lecture will illustrate the variables that should be taken into consideration when a combined ortho-implant-prosthetic treatment is necessary. Several clinical cases will help demonstrate the decision-making process.

Augmentation: The solution for long-term soft tissue and bone preservation for compromised extraction sites in the aesthetic zone

Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, it is questionable if any preservation technique should be used. Augmentation procedures are still needed and our goal has to be to preserve newly generated tissue volume over years. Upon completion of this lecture about long-term soft tissue and bone preservation in compromised sites in the aesthetic zone, participants should be able to:
- select the ideal technique in compromised sites in the aesthetic zone
- understand the need for augmentation procedures in the different situations

Monolithic implant reconstructions - the keystone to advances in CAD/CAM technologies
The recent digital technology offers numerous new and efficient options for restorative dentistry. Within digital dentistry the optical imprisoning is the first step towards a digitalization of the patient’s intraoral situation. The resulting digital file is then used for the virtual planification and the virtual design of reconstructions, which thereafter can be milled out of prefabricated blanks of different materials with aid of CAD/CAM systems. The digital systems available today offer numerous advantages, like e.g. the precision of the reconstructions. A high number of studies has demonstrated good accuracy of the current subtractive manufacturing, i.e. the computer-aided milling or the grinding of ingots. More recently, additive procedures have been introduced. Stereolithography, laser sintering or printing of materials like wax, resins or metals has shown to be even more precise than the subtractive manufacturing. Finally, the „digital workflow“, is not only interesting for the fabrication of dental reconstructions but also for a better patient/dentist communication.
