IDSC 2018 will bring different workshops + special surprise! You can choose the combination of 2 that suits you best!
Jakub Exner : Anterior morphology - Back to roots
The process involved in aesthetic and fixed prosthodontic reconstruction requires knowledge and ability to reproduce three basic aspects of natural teeth: shape, surface texture and color. Of these three aspects, the shape is the one that gives us the aesthetic feeling of reconstruction and has a key role in its successful function. The aim of this course is to revise the theoretic knowledge of dental morphology of the upperfrontal teeth and then apply this knowledge during a practise of modelation on prepared models.
Dr. Miguel David Cevallos Lecaro, Ph.D. : Crown lengthening & suturing
The success of the oral rehabilitation is not only the result of the aesthetic outcome. The reliability of the rehabilitation depends also on the long-term stability. The prosthetic procedures require an accurate identification of the preparation margin. The periodontal tissue health should not be compromised by the final restoration. Sometimes it is necessary to prepare surgically the tooth to attain predictability and assure a long-term stability. This workshop is divided in theoretical and practical sections and will explain to you why, when and how to perform a surgical lengthening of the clinical tooth crown.
Dr. Ivan Martin : Endodontics
Every dentist knows that a root canal anatomy consists of the pulp chamber and root canals. Both of them contain the dental pulp. The smaller branches, called the accessory canals, are most frequently found near the root apex, but they might be found anywhere along the root. The total number of root canals per tooth depends on the number of the tooth roots ranging from one to four, five or more in some cases. Each tooth must be treated individually. To get the best results, you should have knowledge about root canal anatomy, you should use magnification devices like dental loupes or dental microscope and you should follow the rules of a root canal therapy. Does it seem too complicated? Do not worry! We prepared a practical endodontic workshop for you. You will work on plastic models of teeth and you´ll use hand and rotatory endodontic instruments. Also you can try to treat teeth with dental loupes or with a dental microscope. Our lecturer will show you how to do a root canal therapy in the 21st century.
Dr. Boris Vranak : Postendodontic treatment
Restore tooth as a whole is inseparable part of endodontic procedure. Why we would need nicely treated root without any possibility of further reconstruction and function? Sooner the post-endodontic treatment is done, better it is for long term prognosis, maintanance and survival or tooth in mouth of patient. Using dual-cure composite as build-up material and fiber reinforced posts become everyday practice in reconstructing endodontically treated teeth.
Dr. Ondřej Pavlík : Implantation
Dental implants have become common treatment of missing teeth so why to destroy healthy teeth and make bridges? In theoretical part of the workshop we’ll talk about history of implantology, types of implants, typical cases, limitations and complications. In practical part, you try to insert Dentsply implant into artificial jaw.
Dr. Davide Faronnato : Managing tissue grafts around implants: the phenotipe modulation
To achieve a predictable and stable aesthetic outcome in implant therapies the ideal site feature should be known in order to have a reference point on treatment planning. Many researcher are investigating how to manage the main variables that affects tissue maturation around implants during time. In this course will be analyzed the complex interactions between these factors focusing especially on tissue contouring and temporary prostodontic managing according to biology and clinical observations. Wide focus will be given to the fresh socket scenario, according to specific limits and indications and taking care about the soft tissue managing. The emergence profile managing, timing and bone volume correction techniques are described in order to gain good control of the final result and it’s stability upon time. The practical course is aimed at preparing doctors to a good managing of the immediate implant rehabilitation scenario, performing various tissue graft techniques after implant placement.
Dr. Basel Azar : Impression techniques for implant prostheses
For many clinicians and their patients, dental implants are quickly becoming the preferred treatment of choice for tooth replacement. As implants are becoming the standard of care, there is more demand for not only functional, but esthetic treatment outcomes. This lecuture will include step by step implant procedure and hands on impression taking.
Dr. Jana Melišková : CAD/CAM: From scan to crown
CAD/CAM originally industry used technology sneaked into dentistry since 90ies. Nowadays, by many dentists beloved because of its precision and ease of use. By others criticized for lack of technician hand-work. Many CAD/CAM workflows are adopted among dentists, from single crown to full mouth bridges or implant supported restorations. During this workshop you will go trough production of single crown restoration. All using world’s leading scanning hardware and software by 3Shape.
Dr. Radoslaw Jadach : Closing oro-antral fistulae
An oro-antral fistula (OAF) is is an epithelialized pathological unnatural communication between oral cavity and maxillary sinus. It has its origin either from iatrogenic complications or from dental infections, osteomyelitis, radiation therapy or trauma. These kinds of communications arise mainly after extraction of posterior maxillary teeth. In addition, a fistula might originate following removal of maxillary cysts, tumors or trauma. OAF closures can be achieved using different flaps which have lots of advantages and limitations. The most used flaps are these ones: vestibular flap, palatal flap and buccal fat pad Flap(BFP). Though, spontaneous healing may occur in defects which are smaller than 3 mm but larger communications require immediate attention and should be treated without delay, in order to avoid food and saliva contamination that could lead to bacterial infection,sinusitis and further complications leading to patient discomfort. There are several techniques and tips how to close it… do you want to learn more about this issue? Choose this workshop and you won´t regret!
Dr. János Grosz : Direct posterior reconstruction
As general or esthetic dentists, a big part of our daily schedule will be filled by posterior restorations. Mastering this kind of restorative treatment can give a massive foundation to grow our practice, so it is always a good investment to improve our technique, quality and effectiveness. This course gives a clear and simple guide to posterior direct restorations. I will cover all aspects of the topic from the very basics and give a step by step guide for the participants to create perfect restorations in a very effective way.
