Anterior Composite Hands-On Course

Hands – On Course mastering methods of layering aesthetic anterior composite restorations

Patients and dentists increasingly demand all-composite restorations    which cannot be distinguished from natural teeth. The challenge is to mimic natural aesthetics at the highest level.

 Therefore, this course focuses on establishing a customised layering concept with Empress Direct. This concept is presented in theory and practice during the Workshop, in which deep insight into this trendsetting issue is achieved.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

The following topics will be addressed during the course:

 

  • Slide show on the science of composites and adhesives
  • Presentation of the system components by means of natural teeth
  • Adjustments of different translucencies
  • Shaping and shading by means of an additive layering technique
  • Creation of physiological inter-dental spaces
  • Imitation of natural surface texture
  • Understand the principles of bonding to tooth structure
  • How to minimise post-operative sensitivity
  • Mechanical polishing to achieve an optimised surface gloss

 

The course will be rounded off by tips and tricks that help you to ensure efficient and effective procedures in aesthetic dentistry. All delegates will receive an Empress Direct Course Kit compliment of Ivoclar Vivadent which includes composites, adhesives, finishing materials and accessories. Snacks and lunch will also be provided.

Posterior Composite Hands-On Course

Hands – On Course mastering clinical placement of direct posterior composite resin restorations

                                                                                                                              

With new European Directives to replace amalgam patients and dentists are increasingly demanding all-composite restorations and with new materials appearing in the marketplace the demand upon the dental clinician to provide high quality aesthetic restorations has never been higher.

Therefore, this course focuses on establishing a customised layering concept with latest Ivoclar Vivadent composite materials. This course will provide you a detailed insight in placing posterior composites in General Practice. This concept is presented in theory and practice during the Workshop. Our aim is to give you a better understanding into this trendsetting issue and improve your clinical success with posterior composite resins.

The following topics will be addressed during the course:

 

  • Slide show on the science of composites and new adhesive systems
  • 3 hands-on restorative techniques for placement of posterior composites
  • Understand the principles of bonding to tooth structure
  • Understand new bulk fil applications and how this influences work flow
  • Shaping and shading by means of an additive layering technique
  • How to minimise post-operative sensitivity
  • Learning techniques on preparation, isolation, matrix systems
  • Imitation of natural surface texture
  • Mechanical polishing to achieve an optimised surface gloss

 

The course will be rounded off by tips and tricks that help you to ensure efficient and effective procedures in aesthetic dentistry. All delegates will receive an Empress Direct Course Kit which includes composites, adhesives, finishing materials and accessories compliments of Ivoclar Vivadent.

Snacks and lunch will also be provided. Please specify any dietary requirements.

Chairside Characterisation of IPS e.max CAD Restorations

During this course you will cover planning, shade selection & intra oral situations are replicated with the IPS Natural Die material and are shown to demonstrate the communication required for a successful all-ceramic restoration where the underlying situation is not ideal.

Provided with the IPS e.max CAD overview, participants will be guided through and characterise their own IPS e.max CAD restorations using a formula which can be adapted to suit the aesthetics required for each case. This advanced material delivers higher strength and highly aesthetic results easily.

Cementation with aesthetic adhesive systems, adhesive systems and self-adhesive/conventional cementation is explored given the clinicians’ choice based on having to cement high/low strength all-ceramic, the latest bonding protocol is taught with the Abutment Solutions module.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:                                                                     

  • Learn about the IPS e.max CAD material, indications and processing
  • Understand the different translucencies available, know their benefits and limitations
  • Learn effective communication skills given a non-ideal situation whether the case is direct or an indirect all-ceramic restoration
  • Understand how fine finishing can enhance the life-like aesthetics of the chair side all-ceramic restoration
  • Using the Monolithic solutions module to enhance and finish permanent bridge restorations
  • Learn how to change monochromatic all-ceramic blocks into a more natural aesthetic restoration
  • Understand the protocols for the fabrication of the abutment solutions, characterise and bond the components using a coordinated approach.
  • Understand the difference between low strength and high strength all-ceramic chair side options
  • Having learnt those differences between low/high strength being able to select 

           the appropriate cementation method

Making In-House Oral Appliances

Custom fitted oral appliances are simple to make and a crucial piece of treatment for people seeking bleaching trays, bite splints, ortho retainers and mouth guards. If your patients are hesitant to pay for your impressions to be sent away for fabricating a specific oral appliance, then this course and hands-on workshop is for you. All you need is a few pieces of equipment, the knowledge and the room for a simple laboratory at your surgery and you too could provide your patients with access to a cost effective well-fitting oral appliances.

This course will cover the fundamental theory and practice of making oral appliances. It is suitable for any member of the dental team who would like to learn how to make oral appliances – dentists, lab technicians, hygienists, therapists or dental assistants.  Bring your own untrimmed stone model of your own teeth, a family member’s or a friend’s for the hands-on workshop (models will be provided if you cannot bring your own).

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

At the conclusion of this event participants should be familiar with:

  • Constructing a custom fitted bleaching or medication tray
  • Techniques creating a high standard of occlusal splints
  • Ortho retainers
  • What a mouthguard is and why your patient should wear one
  • Trauma
  • Different types of mouthguards
  • Methods of mouthguard fabrication
  • Mouthguards for the orthodontic patient
  • Creating and finishing mouthguards

All equipment will be provided during the hands-on session.

Silensor-sl Snoring Appliance

Snoring is generated in the area of the upper respiratory system. Caused by acceleration of the air flow when the respiratory tract is cramped (pharynx), parts of the soft tissue start to vibrate and cause the snoring noise. The Silensor-sl belongs to the mandibular advancement splints. These devices prevent the lower jaw to fall back during sleep. Clinical tests give proof of the effectiveness of mandibular advancement splints.

This course will cover the fundamental theory and practice of making a Silensor-sl snoring appliance. The course would be only suitable for dentists or lab technicians. In brief the Silensor-sl is a comfortable, adjustable appliance, which allows the patient to breathe normally and is not too intrusive. The Silensor-sl consists of two nightguard type appliances, covering the upper and lower arches. Held together by two lateral rotating connectors, it gently pulls the lower jaw forward. This means the pharyngeal space is enlarged as the lower jaw is displaced in an anterior direction.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

At the conclusion of this event participants should be familiar with:

  • An understanding of sleep disorders (snoring/sleep apnea)
  • Symptoms and consequences of the OSA
  • Overview of diagnostic investigations
  • Different therapies
  • Overview of different anti snoring devices
  • Effectiveness of protrusion splints
  • Introduction to Silensor-sl
  • Fabricating a Silensor-sl snoring appliance

All equipment will be provided during the hands-on course along with a Silensor-sl kit.
