About the course

Friday - Whole Day


Full Mouth Reconstruction - Fast track

Dr. Lukas Lassmann



During this lecture, you will learn:

1. Understanding Orofacial Pain & TMJ- what prosthodontist should know

  • What is pain? How can a dentist correctly diagnose orofacial pain and assess whether it is treatable? How does the source of pain differ from the location of pain? 

  • How to conduct an interview with a patient suffering from pain. 

  • Disc pathology - how to differentiate it and when intervention is necessary

  • How to distinguish between locks of muscle and articular origin

  • Synovial pain map of the temporomandibular joint

  • Radiological picture of disorders of the temporomandibular joint

  • How to examine the temporomandibular joint


2. Occlusal Philosophies - In Search of a Common Denominator

  • How has the approach of occlusal philosophies changed in terms of tooth guidance and its impact on bruxism TMD (Temporomandibular Disorders)? 

  • The impact of improper occlusion on TMD- correlation or causative relationship?

  • “Complicated Relationships between Anterior and Condylar Guidance and Their Clinical Implications” (Lassmann et al.)

  • “Sagittal condylar guidance angle measurement methods: A systematic review” (Lassmann et al.)

  • Is the use of fully adjustable articulators and a facebow really necessary to achieve proper prosthetic reconstruction?

  • Controversies regarding centric relation from the perspective of diagnosis and therapy. 

  • In search of a common denominator between different occlusion philosophies. 

  • What are the limitations of articulators, and can we truly design prosthetic reconstruction that never require adjustment in occlusion?



3. Interdisciplinary Approach to Full Occlusal Reconstructions

  • Interdisciplinary Approach to Full Occlusal Reconstructions. Collaboration Between Orthodontist and Prosthodontist in Advanced Occlusal Reconstruction Cases. 

  • Sleep Apnea and Dental Treatment - How to Diagnose OSA with a Polygraph and Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy? Is Increasing Vertical Dimension of Occlusion Detrimental for Apnea? 

  • Modern Approach to OSA Treatment in the Dental Profession. Lip Lift - An Unconventional Procedure That Changes Everything. 

  • Treatment approach for severe tooth wear.

  • Leaf gauge in clinical practice.

  • Vertical Occlusal Dimension - What Are the Limitations? Should We Be ‘That’ Precise? 

  • Biomechanics of Damaged Teeth. 

  • What Type of Crown-Root Post to Choose? Standard, Fiberglass, or Cast Post? 

  • Shoulderless Preparation - Why? How? When?”


4. Algorithms and decision tree for full mouth reconstruction

  • Simple bite registration for full arches 

  • V-Veneers - An Excellent Treatment Option for Patients with Bulimia.

  • When not to change the existing bite?

  • When should we choose a tool to make bite repeatable and easy to register ? Which tool should we choose?

  • What? When? How long? - A journey through all the appointments with a patient requiring full reconstruction.

  • Discussion





 
Networking dinner at “Tårnet“ at Christiansborg


With its 106 metres, the Christiansborg Palace tower is the highest in Copenhagen, and it offers a magnificent view of the city’s rooftops. We have booked the whole tower so we can have dinner for 100 people (only!), so make sure to book your networking dinner spot well in advance.


The Tower’s restaurant is run by the company Meyers, which was founded by Claus Meyer – one of the central figures responsible for the uprising of the new Nordic cuisine. The team from Meyers makes food with the best products from all over Denmark. The intention is to bring traditional Danish dishes back into the limelight, but with a modern twist to make them outstanding.


Private busses will bring us to Christiansborg and afterwards we will return to Hotel Crowne Plaza and enjoy DJ music and a bar.




During the Friday program you can choose to list yourself at the “fixed tables” and choose which people you will spend the dinner with. A lot of people choose not to and will end up at the “networking tables” where you are randomly seated and might get a new friend or perhaps even get the seat right next to one of the lecturers and have the opportunity to pick their brains.


When the dinner is done we get back to Hotel Crowne Plaza and a DJ-controlled dance floor will be open.


In these surroundings all your minds will be open for new inputs including drinks as well. In other words: We will have a great networking party only limited by the fact that we have to great lectures to attend Saturday.

 

Saturday Morning

Bio-Emulation: 3D histo-anatomic analysis and dynamic light observation for direct restorations

Dr. Javier Tapia-Guadix


Achievement of aesthetic restorations that resemble natural teeth represent a great challenge for our daily practice. Obtaining optimal results with the minimum number of adjustments or repetitions necessarily implies performing a systematic and exhaustive shade analysis.


Understanding light interaction with tooth structures as well as proper 3D histo-anatomic relation between enamel and dentin is essential for an optimal shape and shade reproduction during restorative procedures. Properties such as light scattering, opalescence and fluorescence, as well as considerations to teeth ageing should always be incorporated into our selection criteria.


The dynamic light observation as defined in Bio-Emulation: Visual Synthesis represents the state of the art analysis of light interaction with tooth structures. As such it should become our reference not only for the shade analysis previous to our treatment, but also for the trustworthy final result. Only the restorations that could integrate with different kinds of light (i.e. cross-polarized, transmitted, ultra-violet, diffused, etc) can be considered a true success on the difficult process of emulating nature with dental materials.


The penta_laminar concept represents the ultimate implementation of this philosophy:

Understanding different ageing stages to build a dynamic shade concept that adapts to nature. By implementing this universal shade concept, it is possible to simplify the layering echniques to make them approachable in all situations. From a bi-laminar technique to the penta_laminar technique we can learn to adapt our work in order to optimise the clinical outcome achieving cost-effective treatments to cover our patients needs and expectations.


Key Learning points:

  • Better understanding of optical properties of tissues and materials

  • Understand the 3D spatial relation between enamel and dentin

  • Learn advanced photographic techniques for shade analysis

  • Material selection criteria based on patients age

  • Layering techniques for composites following Bio-Emulation principles

  • Selecting the proper shades for masking fracture lines and creating

    incisal effects. restorations.




 

Saturday Afternoon

Creating Beauty by Recreating Nature

Dr. Rhodri Thomas


his lecture will explore how we can strive to recreate nature in our daily work. Come to adapt a mindset shift and realise as dentists we are also responsible for creating transient artworks that our patients will wear for hopefully many decades.

To begin with we will analyse both the structure and anatomy of teeth, diving into the beautiful world of nature with unique 3D visuals. We will explore the forms of enamel and dentine and how these interact to create unique visual properties. In turn this helps increase our awareness when layering resin cases and also aids in our communication and planning of ceramic cases with our ceramists.

We will then delve into light and optics, materials choices and go step by step through techniques including the planning and delivery of both resin and ceramic to achieve beautiful smiles.


We promise a truly inspiring lecture!



During this lecture you will learn:

  • Natural anatomy of teeth in three dimensions

  • How to effectively plan and visualise cases

  • How to layer resin to maximise results

  • Engage in discussions of preparation and cementation techniques

  • Gain insight into thorough lab communication
