DentaNet Symposium 2019
DentaNet Symposium is our annual event which always attracts a lot of delegates with the combination of world class speakers and the unique DentaNet networking.
DentaNet Symposium 2019 is held on 1-2 February 2019 where we yet again have the honour of presenting 3 inspiring speakers for 3 lectures and as usual a lot of networking. Friday night we will celebrate our 10th anniversary with a dinner at d'Angleterre
Restorative Oxymoron from Adhesive Dentistry to Vertical Crowns
Dr. Pasquale Venuti
The workhorse of general dental practice is treating caries and cracks. The Speaker aims to offer a comprehensive approach to the general dentist, sharing his 20 years of clinical experience. More emphasis will be put on the recent advancements in the field of Vertical Preparations for treating the residual dental structure: an efficacious remedy – to the prevailing “furor implantaris” – for the heavily damaged teeth. The preparation of the abutment using horizontal finish lines (shoulder and chamfer) has been widely used in the last three or more decades and acknowledged by the academic world as the gold standard. The development of new materials and equipment, as well as a better comprehension of soft tissue biology, has allowed us to “revive” the knife-edge finish line and the gingettage strategy (rotary curettage).
The main aims of the lecture are:
- To demystify the “hypothesis” of periodontal damage from vertical finish lines.
- To show the biomechanical advantages of the vertical finish lines, especially in endodontically treated teeth.
- To introduce a completely new approach to designing and managing the vertical finish lines.
You will learn:
- A Safe Drilling Strategy for getting vertical finish lines.
- To create an efficacious ferrule effect on the residual
- dental structure.
- To approach deep decayed margins (deep margin acquisition, deep margin extension, vertical edgeless approach).
- The limits of adhesive dentistry.
- How cracks initiate and propagate.
Craniofacial Dystrophy - Changing Faces, Curing Malocclusion and Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Dr. Mike Mew
Changing faces, and with this curing malocclusion and associated symptoms like OSA (obstructive sleep apnea), will give a better start in life for children and a better approach to treating adults and furthermore it is evidence-based and improves health.
It is more comfortable to believe that the way that your craniofacial form has developed, and the arrangement of your teeth is genetic. However, the hard scientific evidence clearly shows that this is false. This issue is highly controversial and challenges 100 years of orthodontic theory and dogma. None of our ancestors, none of the members of the other 5,400 species of mammals and few truly indigenous peoples have malocclusion. For hundreds of thousands of years everyone attained and maintained 32 perfectly aligned teeth for their whole life.
Modern melting faces: there is now a considerable mismatch between the environment that we evolved to live in and the one that we do live in.
- The effort required to masticate our food is a fraction of what it was.
- Transient nasal obstructions are now normal forcing postural modifications which become habits.
- Pureed foods and a lack of breast feeding interrupt the natural change from an infantile suckle to an adult swallow.
Use it or lose it, modern faces are not fulfilling their full genetic potential, and faces that are not the right shape do not function correctly. We have an endemic of malocclusion, OSA, middle ear infections, deviated nasal septums, sinusitis, forward head posture and temporomandibular disorders. No one can demonstrate the causes, pathology or cure of any of these. It is estimated that 10% of 60 year olds will die a decade earlier from OSA alone, and 40 years ago it was almost unheard of; what will this percentage raise to in a decade or two?
You will learn:
- The aetiology, epidemiology, pathology, treatment and cure of Craniofacial Dystrophy.
- The underlying problem of which malocclusion and obstructive sleep apnea are symptoms.
A New Perspective in Ceramic Restorations
Dr. August Bruguera
The final success in a dental treatment is the result of the execution of a previously designed plan. Having a protocol and well-defined steps will be conclusive to carry out the work.
In this lecture, we will try to split those protocols into small steps that, when followed one after the other, will lead us to the final success. We will pay extra attention to the materials to be used for the rehabilitation. Function and aesthetics are the main parameters that will guide our choice, but the question we will try to answer is: Do these two parameters coincide in one simple material? We know in advance that an all-purpose material does not exist, so we will have to choose one in each case to satisfy both requirements.
Simultaneously, we will update the aesthetic parameters and we will review the shade concept and its communication going to the level 2.0 that present new technologies give us.
We will look for a protocol adapted to each case that provides us with tangible and reliable information while being aware that any type of communication between doctor and technician is sensitive to induce an error.
You will learn:
- To diagnose problems and find solutions: Aesthetic/functional diagnosis.
- Diagnostic waxing and provisionals, concepts of a smile composition.
- Assessment of the different restoring materials: What, when and why.
- How to transmit the accurate color information without any error.
Together we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the DentaNet Symposium
Networking and Exhibition
As usual, there is time set aside for networking when the programme ends Friday afternoon.
The event will be held in the exhibition area from 16.30-18.00. Everybody is invited to join
each other for drinks and snacks. No need to sign up.
Anniversary dinner at d’Angleterre
Friday night, we will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the DentaNet Symposium. We offer you a
gastronomic experience with a anniversary dinner at the legendary and beautiful Hotel d’Angleterre.
D’Angleterre is located at the beautiful Kongens Nytorv, close to the esteemed Nyhavn area, Strøget and
Gothersgade. At this location, we will enjoy a three-course dinner of delicious and exclusive food with
matching wines in a beautiful atmosphere. Later, we will put on our dancing shoes to the tunes of
the live band. There is a formal dresscode so wear your fancy dress or suit.
We will arrange transportation back and forth from d’Angleterre. You will be taken well care of throughout the course!
You are more than welcome to bring your beloved one to the anniversary dinner at d’Angleterre. The same fee applies.
Remember to sign up for the anniversary dinner to attend.
