DentaNet Symposium 2018 byder på indlæg om protetik, vævsregenerering med lasere samt søvnapnø med tre inspirerende undervisere: Dr. Anas Aloum, Dr. Marc Cronshaw og Dr. Steve Carstensen.
DentaNet Symposium 2018
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 2018 is held the 2nd-3rd of February 2018 where we have yet again the honour of presenting 3 inspiring speakers for 3 lectures and as usual a lot of networking. Friday night we will offer you a gastronomic experience with a Network Dinner Deluxe on the restaurant Almanak by Claus Meyer.
A Clinical Perspective on Ceramics, Implants, Teeth Preparations, and Treatment Planning
Dr. Anas Aloum
Dr. Anas Aloum aims to lift the large cloud of confusion that surrounds contemporary dental ceramics and their application. A complete range of common clinical situations will be discussed and a systematic solution will be provided. This includes important sequencing and design consideration for restoring implants adjacent to ceramic restorations. The following questions will be addressed:
- How do we achieve longevity while maintaining a high level of aesthetics?
- When, why, and where should each contemporary ceramic material be used?
- What role do soft tissues play in ceramic material selection?
A simplified classification for contemporary dental ceramics will be provided, which will allow proper communication and make the selection process simple. You will be able to understand the benefits of feldspathic ceramics and their limitation as well as decide what type of ceramics to use and where to get the best aesthetic results with good long-term outcomes. A step-by-step evidence-based approach for predictable bonding will be proposed.
Furthermore, the pressed and milled ceramics - particularly Emax and Empress restorations - and the constituents of these materials as well as their physical properties will be investigated. In addition, systematic evidence-based applications will be provided for these materials. Translational research will be utilized to understand realistic clinical application and use for these materials. The clinician will be able to decide which ceramic to prescribe for various clinical presentations.
Furthermore, we will look at stronger ceramic restorations and how to use them appropriately to get the best result in terms of aesthetics and function. The materials covered in this part will include Zirconia crowns and porcelain fused to metal crowns. In addition, a proper framework design will be proposed to optimize aesthetics and function predictably for our patients. Finally, you will be able to communicate more effectively with dental technicians and be able to use dental ceramics predictably with dental implants.
You will learn:
Ceramic selection for every day practice - when, why and where
- When to use each ceramic material for each clinical scenario.
- The importance of understanding the framework of which you can decide on what material to choose.
- Advantages and disadvantages of each ceramic material.
From planning to execution. A success story for every case from start to finish
- The importance of treatment planning especially with interdisciplinary cases.
- A step by step protocol for each case, with the proper framework of thought to build on.
- The importance of the TRIAL-Therapy as it affects the treatment drastically.
New Developments in Tissue Regeneration and Repair
Dr. Mark Cronshaw
To some extent, lasers are another tool for achieving what you can already do with other devices.
However, in some aspects there are distinct clinical advantages:
- Reduced trauma and pain: TMD, dry sockets, oedema (enhanced drainage), and more.
- Less bleeding and enhanced wound repair: oral mucositis, diabetes, and bisphosphonates.
- Socket preservation techniques: more bone, less recession.
- Simplified surgical and implant procedures.
- The ability to deal with persistent infections e.g. associated with chronic periodontitis or peri-implantitis.
- Accelerated orthodontic tooth movement by up to 40%!
As surgeons, all dentists are faced with the challenge of optimising the patient experience and achieving consistently great results. As a management tool, lasers have a lot of useful properties that can make your practice the local centre of excellence. This can both add to a great personal professional satisfaction and a lot of interest to your daily practice. You can further build your practices and increase profits. This is an evidence-based clinical course with important implications for the specialist practitioner as well as general dentists. It is practically oriented, interesting, and easy to learn. Whether you already use a laser or not this is a day not to miss.
You will learn:
- Photo medicine: The science of enhanced healing and repair.
- Clinical applications of photo medicine in daily practice.
- Soft and hard tissue management in aesthetic dentistry.
Case 1: Laser periodontal bone regeneration (dual wavelength).
Case 2: Laser crown lengthening.
Case 3: Laser assisted periodontal management: the aesthetic-periodontal interface.
Treating Obstructive Sleep Breathing
Dr. Steve Carstensen
Sleep disruptions from obstructed breathing are an epidemic in our patient population. The consequences of the disease touch every part of the physiology and are directly linked to the signs and symptoms that dentists are especially adept at observing. After diagnosis by physicians, the most commonly prescribed therapy, positive air pressure, is unacceptable by more than half of the people who need treatment, while mandibular advancement devices, available only from dentists, are utilized at a much higher rate. The requirement to work closely with physicians to achieve optimum patient health is unique to sleep medicine, professionally challenging and rewarding on many levels to the dentist and every member of the dental team.
You will learn:
- To use simple screening tools to identify patients at risk in their practice.
- To understand the health links between sleep apnea and other diseases.
- The diagnostic process and the dentist’s role.
Networking and Exhibition
As usual, there is time set aside for networking, when the program ends Friday afternoon. The event will be held in the exhibition area at DGI-byen from 16.30-18.00. Everybody is invited to join each other for drinks and snacks. No need to sign up.
Network Dinner "Deluxe"
Friday night we will offer you a gastronomic experience with a Network Dinner “Deluxe” on the restaurant Almanak. Almanak is surrounded by the harbour areas “Inderhavnen”, “Slotholmskanalen”, Holmens Kanal”, and “Nyhavn” and has a beautiful view of the sea. Almanak is the little brother of the Michelin restaurant Studio, and it is one of the restaurants of Claus Meyer which always prioritize gastronomy. At this location, we will enjoy a five-course dinner of Danish modern food with matching wines in a relaxed, cosy atmosphere.
We will arrange transportation back and forth from Almanak. You will be taken well care of throughout the course!
You are very welcome to bring your beloved one to the Network Dinner “Deluxe”. The same fee applies. Remember to sign up for the Network Dinner “Deluxe” to attend.
