    Current potential of reconstructive periodontal surgery: established concepts and new ideas

    Nowadays, in the era of aesthetics, any treatment must be performed meticulously to maintain a natural tooth or provide successful replacement. Recent developments in the field of regeneration have enabled clinicians to perform minimally invasive, patient-friendly approaches. Tooth retention procedures involving regenerative periodontal surgeries have been well documented over the last 20 years. Innovative techniques and sophisticated flap designs have improved the clinical outcomes and decreased patient morbidity. Success of periodontal regeneration is highly correlated with wound stability in the early and late phases. Biomaterial exposure or healing by secondary intention may lead to bacterial contamination in the surgical area and impair the outcomes of periodontal regeneration particularly in the interproximal site. To date, different surgical procedures have been proposed to preserve the interdental papilla during the early and late phases of wound healing to prevent contamination of the regenerating area and eventual wound failure. However, published findings do not report 100% primary closure over the defect-associated papilla during the wound healing process. An ideal flap design may overcome this particular issue and preserve the original anatomy of the entire interdental soft tissues. This presentation is aimed to introduce a novel tunnel-like surgical technique designed specifically to maintain the integrity of the defect-associated interdental papilla thereby providing an optimal environment for wound healing in the regenerative periodontal approaches.

    Soft tissue conditioning in the aesthetic zone with a temporary

    implantoprosthodontic replacement


    The basis for achieving long-term predictable aesthetic results in implant prosthodontic involves proper patient selection by determining an aesthetic risk profile, a detailed treatment plan, and prosthetically guided implant placement. The use of temporary substitutions according to the appropriate protocol further optimizes the desired shape of peri-implant tissue for the best aesthetic result of implant-prosthodontic therapy.

    Non-surgical rejuvenation of the face by a combination of techniques in a single act

    In indicated cases, in one act and a combination of filler (augmentation effect), botulinum toxin (relaxation effect) and mesonitis (rejuvenation and lifting effect) stimulate collagen synthesis (firmness and tone) and angiogenesis (better blood flow), elastin synthesis (elasticity of the skin) ) as well as hyaluronic acid synthesis (hydration effect). The final effect results in skin regeneration and further improvement in its complete structure and quality. The skin becomes fuller, tighter and firmer, better elastic, moisturized and the wrinkles less noticeable or completely disappear. In experienced hands, the use of mesonite in combination with the above materials and methods of rejuvenation can lead to more serious corrections of the face resulting from illness or injury.

    This method, using a combination of techniques and materials, is performed in a single act and is minimally invasive. Such a combination can give very nice aesthetic results and delay the need for surgical type correction. The main feature of this technique is that it is extremely safe, without cuts and scars with rapid recovery and return to daily activities, and the results are natural and long lasting.

    Tooth loss leads to impaired chewing, speech and appearance of the patient, which often causes psychosocial decompensation. With the increase in the proportion of older people in the general population, and thus edentulous patients, there is an increased need for their treatment. The most common therapy for completely edentulous patients is the production of complete dentures. Full dentures should fit precisely on the surface of the lining of the edentulous bearing and be aligned with the surrounding masticatory and facial muscles for good retention and stability and to properly transmit chewing pressure. This is only possible through the proper and accurate performance of all clinical and laboratory procedures. This lecture will outline and describe in detail the clinical and laboratory procedures for the production of complete dentures, from imprint procedures and the determination of inter-jaw relationships to the repair and delivery of complete dentures with a presentation of clinical cases.

    Invisible Art: Integrating Our Work with Nature and the Face

    With the increasing amount of technologies at your disposal, don’t lose sight of the main impetus for your work: the patient. It’s not wonderfully advanced tools and materials that distinguish us — rather, it’s our humanity and artistry that set us apart. As artists, we must be familiar with and ready to utilize a wide array of approaches to our everyday esthetic challenges. Dr. Sivan Finkel will provide an overview of clinician-ceramist communication protocols at both the macro level (facial integration) and the micro level (mimicking natural tooth structure). Topics covered include esthetic diagnosis, smile design, color communication and material considerations – all with the aim of maximizing predictability, and, in turn, patient satisfaction.

    Application of autologous growth factors in dental implantology

    In today's world of modern dental implantology, with the increasing number of implant implants and a growing range of clinical indications, the ever-increasing demands of high aesthetics are being set. The basic question of the therapist, especially from the surgical point of view, are we always able to reach and reach the highest point in terms of aesthetics? In cases of exceptional atrophy of the alveolar ridge, conditions after trauma of the oral and maxillofacial region, and patients after oncologic surgery are a major challenge in daily clinical practice. The importance and value of a multidisciplinary approach to such patients is the key to success in achieving a functional and aesthetic result.

    Communication Protocol: Dental Practice-Lab

    The basic task of the dental technician is to provide the prosthetics with the best possible function and aesthetics. Numerous innovations in the field of engineering, technology and material development have opened a number of new prosthetic rehabilitation solutions. Predictable success is only possible with the joint planning of the practice with the laboratory and the proper selection of materials for the manufacture of substitutes. Digital dentistry is any dental technology or device that uses digital or computer components instead of the older mechanical or electrical methods. Computer aided dentistry simplifies many processes and eliminates several previous analog steps that can now be automated. Putting all of these innovations into practice in front of the dental technician has posed new challenges. Information and the acquisition of new skills have become a priority and essential for everyday work. By combining our daily needs with new technologies, we are adapting to a constantly changing world.

    Aesthetic challenges of implant-prosthodontic rehabilitation

    implant-prosthodontic rehabilitation of the aesthetic zone is a major clinical challenge. Basic diagnostics, which includes dental radiographs and an orthopantomogram, are absolutely not sufficient. Basic diagnostic parameters are provided by 3D imaging, and the addition of an intra-oral scan overlapping with 3D rtg imaging is currently the most complete diagnostic analysis. Based on these parameters, the treatment plan becomes very predictable and in complete harmony with biological concepts (implant angulation, 3D position, biological width).

    Considering the indications for implant-prosthodontic rehabilitation, there is a very big difference in the planning of therapy for the replacement of one, more or all teeth (complete toothlessness). By losing two, more or all teeth, the bone ridge will be transformed from a wavy shape into a plane and lose some of its volume, thereby losing the morphology that ensures the natural appearance and position of the soft tissues. Professionally, the concepts of such different rehabs are diametrically opposite, and looking at the same issues from a patient's point of view, the aesthetic criteria are exactly the same! So when, how and why to choose a particular concept of therapy is a key question that needs to be answered clearly at the very beginning of therapy.

    Rehabilitation of the aesthetic zone with implants is a demanding task that needs to be based on detailed diagnostics including 3D RTG diagnostics, aesthetic smile analysis and soft tissue analysis. The implant placement should be prosthodontically guided, their position exact in all three spatial dimensions, and the shape and material of the final supra-structure so as to ensure that the necessary aesthetic criteria are met.

    Tooth injury - How to achieve long-term success in treatment?

    The lecture will present a detailed protocol for the treatment of a patient who has suffered dental trauma from emergency admission to the planning of long-term treatment that will fulfill the patient, but also the wishes of the therapist from a functional and aesthetic point of view. The first step should always be appropriate emergency treatment after tooth trauma, from the first contact with the injured patient until the completion of the first visit. Taking anamnestic data or heteroanalysis (from a person accompanying a child) is an extremely important factor in assessing the psychophysical status of a traumatized patient. An element that certainly needs to be differentially diagnostic when considering minor patients is the aspect of physical trauma in terms of abuse or neglect. Clinical examination, X-ray diagnostics and vitality testing precede the clinical diagnosis, after which the patient can be optimally treated, as emergency surgery on the traumatized tooth is of utmost importance for the further course of therapy and long-term prognosis. A definitive treatment plan is more certain after reviewing what has been achieved so far during treatment, with the potential collaboration with other specialist branches (prosthetics, orthodontics). The lecture will also cover topics on proper splinting and stabilization of injured teeth, as well as compensation of lost hard tissue with adhesive procedures and composite materials, with all endodontic aspects of traumatized young permanent tooth, as well as possibilities in prevention of dental injuries.

    21st century digital aesthetic dental technology

    Full ceramic systems are one of the first choices when making aesthetic prosthetic restorations. The development of materials, techniques and technologies has significantly influenced digitization of the prosthetic procedures and enables the application of ceramic materials depending on the conditions in the patient's mouth. In addition to the high aesthetic requirements of the patient and the color of the future replacement, the design should take into account the thickness of the restoration, the color of the ceramics, the colors of the cement and the abutment. Proper selection of all the parameters ensures the desired highly aesthetic result.

    The lecture will present the clinical application of ceramic systems in various aesthetic prosthetic cases.

    Endodontic therapy - the invisible foundation of aesthetics

    Endodontic treatment within aesthetic rehabilitation is a key infrastructure part of therapy. If done incorrectly, it can not only compromise the aesthetic part of the definitive restoration but also the pain, functional problems, patient dissatisfaction, and ultimately the failure of therapy and the need for repeat work. Also, in the preparatory phase, the question of endodontic indications and the prognosis of the success and long-term treatment of compromised teeth are raised. Due to the increasing popularity of bio-ceramics in endodontics, as well as the generation of advanced adhesive systems of restoration and upgrading of lost hard tissue, it is possible to make the preparatory phase of therapy minimally invasive and to avoid unnecessary traumatization of teeth, surrounding tissues and structures, and even the patient. In addition to materials and techniques, the use of state-of-the-art machine systems and sound / ultrasound or laser activation of solutions in root canal chemomechanical treatment contributes to the success of the therapy and to the reduction of postendodontic complications. The lecture will present a minimally invasive approach in endodontic treatment as a basis for successful oral rehabilitation, including a presentation of complex cases of endodontic treatment of compromised teeth.

    eLAB protocol - digital determination of tooth color

    Determining the color of your teeth when performing prosthetic work in a dental laboratory is a difficult challenge, even for very experienced technicians.

    eLAB is a standardized protocol by which we can digitally determine (measure) tooth color.

    Dental photography with a DSLR camera, polarizing filters and a gray white balance card, which is then processed in eLAB software, gives you an accurate measured tooth color (light and chrome), and a personalized dentin recipe that can be reproduced with almost any ceramic system .

    The protocol also allows digital try-in verification of results.

    In this way we are able to produce even the most demanding work, such as one tooth in the front, (which is the biggest challenge for any technician), with a predictable and measurable result.

    Ceramic veneers

    Today, the demands for dental aesthetics are increasing.

    Ceramic veneers are the most aesthetic, minimally invasive prosthodontic replacement, but the indications for the shells are still limited.

    Each case should be analyzed and planned in detail. The course of therapy and preparation are different for each indication. In order to fully achieve the desired look and function, we must follow strict design protocols.

    Ceramic veneers are works that require maximum precision but also have a superior finish.

    Digital workflow in implant supported restorations

    Digital workflow in dentistry has three components. Acquisition of data, planning and

    designing the restoration with the help of computer and manufacturing of the restoration.

    These steps are common in every field of restorative dentistry. Volumetric tomography

    gives us detailed information on implant site combined with proper software it is possible

    to produce a surgical guide which facilitates the correct placement of implants. After the

    placement of implants it is possible to take a digital impression and design the restoration

    and most of the case restoration can be finished in one appointment. In this presentation

    the seteps of digital workflow for implant supported restorations will be discussed in

    Color in Esthetics

    Color and appearance are very pertinent to dental practice for the esthetic outcome and the natural replication of biomimetic restorations. This lecture will provide an overview of the most recent scientific developments combined with their clinical application. Examples and practical suggestions associated with enhanced functional esthetics in both the dental office and the dental laboratory will be covered. This includes, but is not limited to, the nature of color, evidence-based interpretation of clinical results, materials selection and quality control, computer modelling for “white”, “pink”, and relevance of translucency. You will learn traditional and advanced approaches aimed to address drawbacks and provoke a paradigm shift.


    1. Understand the nature of color appearance and visual thresholds in dentistry, and their clinical relevance through the day-to-day dentistry point of view

    2. Review and contrast traditional (empirical) and contemporary (evidence-based) approach to tooth color matching, communication and reproduction

    3. Compare the “pink” related issues and solutions

    Is there a future for dental ceramics?

    Developments are unstoppable and we are always unsure where the journey goes, what the future looks like.

    Climate change - CO2 emissions - Electromobility?

    No one knows exactly where the development is going, but one thing is for sure, change is a natural endeavor.

    We had countless discussions about the entry of CAD-CAM, or currently about generative finishing processes.

    Curse or benefit?

    It is a question of positioning, strategy and personal touch.

    The key to a rational, and yet premium aesthetics is the symbiosis of both worlds.

    Machines can not replace our curiosity!

    An almost perfect crown is and remains a unique piece of craft, more than ever, because the demands of the patients have grown.

    Ceramic concepts with minimal effort and maximum aesthetics are future-oriented strategies in the fight against industrial production.

    Synergy of periodontology and orthodontics in the service of smile aesthetics

    Aging is a natural process that leaves a mark on the dentition. Loss of alveolar bone height and gingival papillae, recession, distraction, and protrusion of teeth impair the smile aesthetics. The lecture will show the possibilities of cooperation of periodontists and orthodontists in the treatment of adult patients with reduced periodontal and disturbed aesthetics of smile.

    The Bio-Emulation approach to direct composites

    Understanding light interaction with tooth structures as well as proper histo-anatomic principles is essential

    for a better material and shade selection during direct restorative procedures.

    Tooth structures form a complex optical medium for light as it passes through enamel, dentino-enamel

    complex and dentin. Furthermore, this behavior changes over the years, as tissues change in morphology

    and composition. Comprehension of dynamic aging of tooth structures is a key for success when selecting

    the proper value and chromaticity for restorative materials.

    By using the selective enamel dissolution technique it's possible to reveal the true shape of dentin, which

    leads to an even better understanding of light interaction and simplification of layering techniques.

    The Bio-Emulation approach assess all this histo-anatomic parameters to achieve the ultimate simplification

    of current techniques as well as development of future technologies for restorative dentistry.
