REMOVABLE DENTAL PROSTHESES FOR OLD AND VERY OLD PATIENTS
Martin Schimmel (Switzerland)

Learning Objectives

  • > Correlate the signs of ageing of the orofacial system into features for a removable prosthesis for geriatric patients
  • > Establish an age–adequate treatment plan
  • > Adapt removable prostheses with functional decline later in life

Abstract

Despite significant progress in dentistry, tooth loss still has a high prevalence in old age. Old and very old patients tend  to be more challenging to treat, as signs of ageing, multimorbidity, reduced mobility and often an unfavourable socio- economic context may dominate treatment planning. Treatment considerations may therefore have to deviate from an ideal academic treatment plan to a reasonable or even feasible approach, thus taking into account the patients functional limitations, motivation and the cost-benefit ratio. Prospective treatment planning should avoid comprehensive changes of dental prostheses in late life, when neuroplasticity is diminished. Restorative measures might reverse some of the functional, psychological and psychosocial effects of tooth loss and thus increase the oral health related quality of life.

RESTORING THE EDENTULOUS PATIENT; TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES TO OBTAIN MORE PREDICTABLE RESULTS
Julian Conejo (Costa Rica)

Learning Objectives

  • > This lecture is focused on explaining clinicians the basic concepts of restoring the edentulous patient and how to incorporated the latest technology to facilitate clinical workflows and obtain higher success rates

Abstract

The rehabilitation of the edentulous patient can be a big challenge for many dental practitioners.

On this lecture, step by step protocols with clinical cases from complete dentures, over dentures and fixed implant supported restorations will be presented.

These guidelines are very useful for treating the edentulous patient in your daily practice.

The CAD-CAM technology for the production of different frameworks and new materials will be addressed. Computer guided surgery and Immediate loading protocols for more demanding patients will also be explained.

CLINICAL USE AND LONGEVITY OF ALL-CERAMIC RESTORATIONS
Matthias Kern (Germany)

Learning Objectives

  • > To learn the clinical application of all-ceramic prosthetic restorations
  • > To understand the parameters which influence the longevity of all-ceramic restorations

Abstract

All-ceramic restorations provide better aesthetics and biocompatibility than metal ceramics. A review of the clinical application and outcome of all-ceramic prosthetic restorations will be presented. Very promising long-term data are available for single tooth restorations and minimal invasive tooth replacement using resin-bonded retainers. However, for many all-ceramic materials long-term data are still missing, especially when used for fixed dental prostheses in the posterior.

DIGITAL DENTISTRY: DO NOVEL MATERIALS MEET ALL OUR EXPECTATIONS?
Erhan Comlekoglu (Turkey)

Learning Objectives

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

Abstract

The shift in patient demand towards metal-free restorations has increased due to desire for biosafety as well as aesthetics. To meet this need, novel materials and processing technologies are being introduced. Recent developments in sinterized glass, polycrystalline, alumina and zirconia based ceramic materials and adhesive systems, in parallel with computer- aided design and manufacturing methods, have shifted dental technology away from 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 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 high quality, fast, but precise and relatively economical dental restoration fabrication techniques and materials using CAD/CAM technology.
