Live WebinarComputer-controlled local anaesthesia & paediatric patients: how to make your injections safe and effective
Aneta Olszewska DDS, PhD
24 Sep 2020, 06:00 PM Warsaw
Local anaesthesia can often be unbearable for young patients and stressful for a dentist. A computer-controlled local anaesthesia system allows the delivery speed and pressure to be adjusted to the clinical situation, developmental, anatomical, and physiological tissue differences observed in children. Effective anaesthesia is achieved with a lower amount of analgesic reducing the risk of toxic or allergic reactions and minimizing discomfort and sensation of numbness after the treatment. It helps prevent unwanted self- injuries to the lips, cheeks, and tongue.
Live WebinarDigital Dates – How to immerse in digital implant prosthodontics

Nowadays dental implants are mostly the first treatment option for missing teeth. Long-term promising results increase the interest on implant treatment for both patients and dentists. Especially with digitalization, dental treatment became more reachable as the procedures get easier. Plus, answering the demand of shortened treatment period is the most favorable result of digital implant dentistry.

Incomplete removal of a tooth has always been a dilemma for discussion over the centuries. In the 1920s, disservice of a patient was considered if a fragment of a tooth was not removed as it would cause pain, infection and even cyst formation. This was the historic consensus by then. Up to 11-37% the retained root fragments were accidentally discovered of routine radiographs and were reported. Studies have shown majorities of these root fragments will cause no harm to patients and will heal in situ under certain conditions. Healing will be by formation of a cementum layer on dentine, which allows bone deposition around the root fragment, hence being enclosed within bone. Coronectomy was a later developed, a technique to intentionally keep the root fragments for the benefit of the patient in preserving alveolar bone for prosthetics or avoidance of injury to the inferior alveolar nerve in impacted wisdom teeth where risk of damage is high.

Dr. Nygaard will share how the use of a digital implant workflow can be a powerful tool to build your implant practice and provide an exceptional patient experience to distinguish your practice.
Live WebinarMaster Class Complications Management
Prof. Giovanni Salvi
19 Sep 2020, 08:30 AM Warsaw
Trends in the thriving implant practice with more aggressive treatment protocols such as; immediate implant placements, immediate loading protocols and less careful patient selection approach are a reality. These trends together with more and more implant companies going into the market with limited or no scientific and clinical field experiences could lead to implant failures. This webinar gives you a comprehensive overview on how implants failures and technical complications can be prevented, and if they occur how they can be treated

Digital dentistry has become a popular and integral part of dentistry, both clinically and in the laboratory. With the advances in digital technology, we are equipped with the tools to diagnose, plan and carry-out treatment more effectively and efficiently. However, even greater advances have been possible in the placement and restoration of implants through these digital innovations. The management of patients with worn and missing dentition is complex and becomes difficult in countries of vast open spaces and where there is distance between clinician and technician. Through the use of digital dentistry this obstacle can be overcome allowing improved precision and predictable outcomes. In this case study, with an integrated team approach, full mouth rehabilitation will be done with the aid of CAD/CAM technology and other digital advances in dentistry.
Live WebinarEvidence Based Evolution of Immediate Loading in Implantology
Dr. Eloana Thomé
17 Sep 2020, 07:00 PM Warsaw
In over 20 years of experience in Implantology, our team has shown that the principle of immediately loading/temporizing implants with provisional crowns and bridges is accepted as a reliable and efficient method of oral rehabilitation. When well indicated, it can be a standard procedure in the daily clinic, and furthermore, based upon scientific and practical experiences, lead to a faster, cheaper treatment and to an improved biological response in healing, promoting both professional and patient satisfaction.
Live WebinarDeveloping a good pink aesthetic score in the anterior maxilla
Dr. Marlene Teo
17 Sep 2020, 12:00 PM Warsaw
In the anterior maxilla, it is not just important for an implant to survive and succeed but to also look natural and blend in harmoniously with the adjacent teeth. There are some basic principles that need to be adhered to before we can even do soft tissue grafting to enhance aesthetics in the anterior maxilla. Soft tissue grafts will not work if the implant is not placed in the proper position or if the implant and prosthetic design is not ideal. This lecture hopes to emphasise the basic principles to achieve a good pink aesthetic score in the anterior maxilla.
Live WebinarNarrow Diameter implants: are they a predictable treatment option?
Laura Maestre Ferrin DDS, PhD
17 Sep 2020, 09:00 AM Warsaw
Traditionally, narrow diameter implants have been used to restore anterior teeth in the mandible and in gaps with compromised mesio-distal dimension. Modifications in the materials and designs have produced more resistant reduced diameter implants, and thus they may be used in almost any indication. But, do we have enough evidence to choose them in posterior restorations? Are they a reliable alternative to horizontal bone regeneration procedures? And what can we expect from the industry in order to obtain mechanically resistant materials? We will try to find answers to these and other questions concerning this current topic.
