AM VIRTUAL LECTURE: Evolution - An Update on Ceramics, CAD/CAM, Bonding, & Implants

Time: 8:30 - 11:30 a.m.

Presented by Markus Blatz, DMD, PhD

Synopsis: The recent evolutions in ceramic, adhesive, and Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technologies provide aesthetic, less invasive, and long-lasting treatment options in restorative and implant dentistry. With these advances, that many questions arose that may or may not have been answered. This presentation will answer the following questions in an unbiased manner:

  • What are the aesthetic treatment guidelines considering the large variety of silica-based, high-strength, and hybrid ceramic materials available today?
  • What is the best way to integrate digital workflows and resin bonding technologies?
  • Is all zirconia the same?
  • What are the best materials to restore dental implants?
  • Is the scientific evidence for these topics?

During this presentation, Dr. Blatz will also provide updates on treatment options for conservative laminate veneers, implant-supported full-mouth rehabilitations, etc. We will also discuss case selection, tooth preparation, dental implants, digital manufacturing in the dental laboratory and in clinics, fundamental material science, cementation, and bonding of ceramics.

DDS PM LECTURE: 3 Big Trends will Reshape Dental Practice - Are We Ready?

Time: 12:30 - 3:30 p.m.

Presented by Marko Vujicic, PhD

Synopsis: Difficult cases can be simplified when carefully thought out. A strong proficiency in crowns and bridges, precision attachments, restorative dentistry, and implants allows the practitioner to choose the best treatment option for the patient. This course will present a unique approach to diagnosis and treatment planning that will offer the practitioner new and creative treatment options to help patients—including patients who are not candidates for sophisticated dentistry. Course attendees will learn how to treat teeth with insufficient clinical crowns.  Many teeth being extracted in favor of implant therapy can actually be saved—without buildups or posts. During the course, a demonstration will show techniques for making provisional and permanent restorations on teeth that do not fall out.  Course attendees will be introduced to the double-tilt precision attachment case—a treatment option with a more than 70-year track record. This presentation will feature numerous case examples from a library of more than 100,000 pictures and X-rays taken throughout the past 68 years.
