What’s New? What’s Proven? Controversies
and Clinical Tips
Knowledge of the latest indirect dental materials is vital to maximizing the aesthetic and functional success of your team-created restorations. Dental materials are sometimes being brought
to market and being widely used in patients without adequate
science-based evidence. Dr. Adams will help you increase your
understanding of the most advanced materials with the goal of
making better-informed choices.
A basic knowledge of today’s all-ceramic materials is also a must
for today’s assistants and hygienists, allowing them to explain,
discuss, and support treatment plans presented to patients that
include the most proven advanced aesthetic options. This full-day
science-based presentation is recommended for doctors, chairside assistants, hygienists and dental technicians.
Course Objectives:
• The basics classifications of the all-ceramic materials currently
• Advantages and disadvantages of each class of modern allceramic materials
• A review of some of the latest developments and innovations in
the world of all-ceramics
• How to minimize all-ceramic fractures/ failures to reduce
stress and increase profits
• 100% zirconium restorations: Evidence-based data versus
future challenges?
• New coping designs for HIP’d zirconia. Should our labs be slow
cooling, or fast cooling zirconia restorations? Myths versus
• What are the best cements for all-ceramics available today?
The latest approaches to increase bond strength and decrease
microleakage. Curing challenges under ACs?
• An update on surface treatments for all-ceramics. Making it
much simpler!
• Treatment planning considerations for all-ceramics: opening
the doctor-technician channels
• Are all-ceramics always the best choice? What are some of the
best alternatives?
• The role of occlusion in the function and longevity of allceramics
• Ways to improve bite registrations for your dental lab team to
ensure better occlusal results

Esthetic Realities For Today and Tomorrow
What will separate us more then ever before in the years to come
will be our talent level and ability to understand the clinical/
technical side of dentistry. This lecture will focus on the “Team
Concept” of restorative dentistry and the importance of the dental
teams ability to effectively control the esthetic outcome. Under
the best of circumstances the transfer of information between the
dentist and technician for the fabrication of restorations is diffi cult
and challenging. Our educated patients and the advancement of
materials has created a need for us to didactically move through
the diagnostic process including biomechanical, functionally,
periodontal and
esthetically. With the advent of newer technologies such as
photographic, video and cad cam, our role in the communication
process will be a value to the dental community.

This assures that surgical and restorative factors are considered
prior to implant placement. Once the optimal implant positions are

Full Arch Zirconia Hybrids: Predictable
Results with GC Initial ZR-FS and GC Initial
Far too many variables (heat rate, holding time, cracking, cooling)
hinder the fabrication of full arch zirconia hybrids. Add to that the
fact that we have no set formula to follow during fabrication we have become accustomed to following a standard formula
when fabricating single crowns and small span bridges (how to
grind, how to steam, what temperatures, cooling, etc.). With full
arch zirconia hybrids, technicians must rely on past experience,

Individuality in the field of implant
prosthetics: Is ceramic still the material of
the future?
Ceramic and Zirconium are often too hard for human tissue and
serve no resilience in protecting the body for long term use.
Polymer, composite, and/or acrylics currently used as prosthetic
dental materials are too weak in strength, dissolve quite easily
showing no restraint to colour changes, often can produce a bad
odor and are prone to bacteria adhesions.
In this presentation, the speaker demonstrates the concepts
and materials used to achieve optimal patient satisfaction. With
Bredent Group’s innovative new system; Visio.lign the above
mentioned weaknesses and shortages will be overcome. The
aesthetic options possible with new and modern materials, such
as modified composites, are demonstrated on the basis of fixed
and removable restorations on implants. The speaker poses the
provocative question, “Does it always have to be ceramic?“

the box into new areas of healing. What
otherwise may have been a very guarded prognosis , laser
applications can shift the outcome to a more
favourable prognosis. This lecture looks at real time video
procedures and post ops that allows faster healing
and less stress chairside, not only for the dentist and team but
also for the patient. Application involves not
only soft tissue but also hard tissue, teeth and bone. Local
anaesthetic is often not needed! Minimally invasive
dentistry makes it fun for everyone. We all deserve a win-win
