MANAGING OCCLUSION WITH A CHAIRSIDE CAD-CAM SYSTEM
Christian Moussally (France)

Learning Objectives

  • > When restoring a large number of teeth, it may become difficult to manage occlusion.
  • > With this lecture, I would like to show how it is possible, using a chairside CAD-CAM system, to adjust the Vertical Dimension of Occlusion (VDO) of our patients.

Abstract

When a large number of teeth are to be restored, the management of occlusion becomes more complicated. A wax-up   is made as a preview of the desired anatomy. It is transferred into the patient’s mouth through a silicone mold to allow an aesthetic and functional validation of the modeling. This technique presents technical difficulties of implementation. Considerable advances in Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) allow us to realize these wax-ups and mock-ups digitally with a lot of advantages and interests compared to the “conventional” technique.

OPTIMIZED BONDING AND MATERIAL SELECTION UPDATE FOR CHAIRSIDE CAD/CAM DENTISTRY
Julian Conejo (Costa Rica)

Learning Objectives

  • > Present the new restorative materials available for indirect restorations..
  • > Show scientific based material selection concepts.
  • > Update clinicians on latest bonding protocols.

Abstract

With less invasive indirect restorations, bonding optimization and proper material selection are crucial for long term success. Scientific studies and step by step clinical protocols will be described in this lecture with the objective of improving success rates for bonded CAD/CAM restorations.

DIGITAL ERA IN PINK AND WHITE AESTHETICS: IMMEDIATE DEFINITIVE CUSTOM ABUTMENTS
Erhan Comlekoglu (Turkey)

Learning Objectives

  • > Esthetic and mechanical properties of recently introduced CAD/CAM materials.

Abstract

The demand of the patients towards metal-free restorations has increased due to search for biosafety as well as esthetics. To meet this need, novel materials and processing technologies are being introduced. With recent developments in sinterized glass, polycrystalline, alumina and zirconia based ceramic materials and adhesive systems parallel with the computer-aided design and manufacturing methods have shifted the way of dental technology focused on lost-wax technique. Very precise intra-oral scanners have been developed due to advances in especially optical techniques. Computer technology in dentistry is not only used for restoration fabrication, but it is also used for diagnosis and treatment, as a communicative tool for patients and treatment planning for all dental fields as well as guided surgery. Digital dentistry will be the key of the future. Therefore, the objective of this lecture is to discuss the high quality, fast but precise and relatively economical dental restoration fabrication techniques and materials by using the CAD/CAM technology.
