Maintaining the Worn Dentition: Learn the Latest in Ceramics, Whitening, Provisionals and More is organized by Minnesota Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (MACD) and will be held on Jan 10, 2020 at Edina Country Club, Edina, Minnesota, United States of America.
Successful Techniques for Whitening Discolored Teeth (2 hours):
From a little whiter to extreme white, this presentation covers a wide range of clinical cases and includes techniques that produce whiter teeth for most people. Successful techniques for bleaching vital and non-vital discolored teeth are demonstrated in a detailed step by step series of techniques. For example chair side, abrasive, and home bleaching techniques will be discussed as well as success experienced in combination applications. Bleaching difficult cases will be shown (tetracycline and other) and methods to obtain whiter teeth for these patients will be revealed. Chairside high intensity halogen light bleaching success with the Zoom and Rembrandt Lighten will be shown and discussed. Effective methods to decrease cold sensitivity will be demonstrated.
Provisionals (1 hour):
Making esthetic provisionals with automixing bis aryl and methacrylate provisional materials are compared. The results demonstrating what materials should be used in what situation may surprise you. A comparison of light cured, chemically cured, and dual cured materials used to fabricate accurate provisional restorations will be presented. An esthetic malleable single unit provisional restoration will be presented. Advantages and disadvantages of these newer materials will be discussed. Flexible provisional restorations for inlays and onlays with easily fabricated VLC materials are shown.
Ceramics (2.5 hours):
If you are placing all ceramic restorations you should hear this presentation. Ceramic materials have evolved from weaker feldspathetic porcelain to high strength more translucent zirconia materials. Veneers, inlays and resin bonded all ceramic fixed partial dentures will be shown. Do zirconia restorations produce significant enamel wear on opposing enamel? Are they viable restorative materials and how much occlusial reduction is necessary and what margin design is best to produce viable restorations with all ceramic materials? How to bond and when to cement all ceramic restorations will be detailed in step by step illustrations. Lithium dislocate, full contour zirconia and feldspathetic porcelain materiais, will be compared using their mechanical and physical properties. Translucent zirconia will be examined as well as cases of each type of zirconia shown. Indications, where to use these materials and contraindications will be discussed. The most effective cutting instruments for removing zirconia will be shown and compared. All this and nice cases as well.
Maintaining the restored dentition (1.5 hours):
Ever had a patient whose name on the appointment schedule strikes fear into your heart because your recently placed dentistry is failing?. Not only do you not want to show this case to anyone, would you like to hide them? Beginning with an easy to use caries risk assessment to quickly identify at risk patients, this lecture discusses factors which increase tooth decay and details in a logical step by step manner how to motivate patients to remove those factors. Useful oral hygiene instruments, modifications and using remineralizing agents like bioactive materials, resin infusing materials like ICON are detailed for at home and office use to treat those patients who are caries prone. But that is just the start as new materials have developed with significantly different mechanisms of action which are extremely useful for high risk patients. Amorphous calcium phosphate, pH modifiers, fluoride supplements and xylitol and bioactive materials will be advocated as alternate and supplemental methods for treating high caries risk patients. Useful instrument modifications will be shown to improve the patient’s ability to maintain your restorative treatments. This program addresses caries management by risk assessment to identify an indivjdual’s risk level for dental caries, and provide proper current preventive treatment modalities and recommendations. Using case studies, participants will review and discuss how they can select appropriate therapies and home-applied practices to reverse or reduce caries. Emphasis is given on recognizing the changing paradigm in preventive care. After a review of currently available sweeteners, xylitol and the research on this sweetener will be provided.
