Workshop #4

Shade matching - myths, mis-perceptions, tips and techniques

Shade is of great significance to success of an anterior restoration or prosthetic appliance. Initial patient satisfaction is mainly based on shade judgment thus a large share on practice marketing is based on it. Despite its importance, little effort has been devoted to develop more accurate methods for shade matching and decode, teach and obtain repeatable results on color. Vita shade guide still remains the main tool to decide for color selection in dentistry, even though has been suggested more than 90 years ago. During the lecture and the workshop we will have the opportunity to go through the issues related to Vita shade guide, we will critically appraise alternative shade matching methods, we will explain with examples optical properties of dental materials comparatively to Vita shade guide, we will discuss the subjectivity factors and the results repeatability, we will deepen into the dimensions of color and its mapping systems, we will suggest current methods for shade matching and give tips and tricks for better results.

Workshop #6


Bone grafts are commonly used to augment bone loss in the oral and maxillofacial region, however large bone defects continue to pose clinical challenges. Tissue loss in the complex oral and maxillofacial region pose challenges towards successful restoration and the challenges stem from the complexity of the maxillofacial defects due to the variability of the location, size, geometry and vascularity of the defects. Autologous bone continues to remain the ‘gold standard’ since it has the ability to stimulate bone regeneration through osteoinduction and avoid immunological response the reconstruction of maxillofacial defects have had limited success due to the complexity and variability of the location, size, geometry and vascularity of the defects.. Despite advances in regenerative medicine, the reconstruction of maxillofacial defects have had limited success due to the complexity and variability of the location, size, geometry and vascularity of the defects. Tissue engineering (TE) approaches are being increasingly being considered in order to grow de novo bone for the repair and reconstruction of bone defects, however presently clinically viable systems are very limited. This chapter will discuss challenges in bone tissue regeneration in the oral and maxillofacial region, the ideal material requirements and advancements in both materials science and bioengineering towards new generation of therapeutics in clinical regenerative medicine.
  • -Introduction
  • -Challenges of Bone Tissue Regeneration in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
  • -Material Requirements for Bone Substitute in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
  • -Existing Strategies in Bone Tissue Regeneration in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
  • -The Gap and Future Improvements for Bone Tissue Regeneration in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Workshop #8

Direct Composite Veneer Workshop

To emulate and simulate nature as it exists in many different ways, has always been a dream for mankind .The loss of tooth structure calls for restorative procedures to replenish the missing tooth substance in its form, function and esthetics.The major clinical challenge lies in replacing tooth in its complex morphologic diversity in terms of physical and optical properties.

Morphologic stratification of resin-based composites is based on stacking materials with varying degrees opacity and translucency to match the different layers within the tooth.A stepwise morphologic layering technique can be highly effective to create optically mimetic restorations. This mentor-guided hands-on workshop is intricately designed to enhance the skills of the clinician in Anterior Direct Composite Artistry

Hands-on: Direct Composite Veneer Build-up on Polychromatic teeth in Silicone models.

Simplifying rotary endodontics

World over, Most Dentists are switching over to rotary instrumentation for shaping the root canal. It is fast, easy, reproducible, and consistent in high quality output. There are choices of many instruments to the practitioners. However many lacunae exist in the way the instruments are used, resulting into complications like separation of instruments, transportation etc.  This has been overcome by modifying Nickel Titanium alloy. Recently a New upgraded version of Protaper  Rotary NITi Instruments have been introduced which are made from this newly improved NITI of Golden colour. This Instrument series is called Protaper Gold. These instruments have overcome all the previous shortcomings of various NITi instruments and the shaping with them results into superior shapes and utmost safety with regards to breakage. Seeing is believing as one can see these instruments take care of highly curved canals with ease. The workshop is designed to have technically detailed Lecture, DEMO and Hands-on of Protaper Gold  Rotary instruments and  highlighting the safe use of various Rotary instruments.

Workshop #12

Functional Esthetic Dentistry-TMJ Occlusion Perspective

In day to day practice Dentist perform lots of Esthetic Restorative procedures like laminates, All ceramic crowns, Full mouth Rehabilitation & Implants etc. While performing such procedures, major emphasis has been given to the Esthetic part rather than the functional part. Such restoration leads to the Failure, fracture & may cause damage to the stomatognathic system. The main Triad of the stomatognathic System is 1) TM joint 2) Muscles 3) Occlusion with neuromuscular control.

The “Neuromuscular Dentistry” deals with Rehabilitating Restorations Esthetically but knowing the Functional aspect of it before treating them.It is of utmost importance to know the condition of TMJ, tension in the muscles, occlusal condition & Posture of the patient during Treatment planning.

With the advent of COMPUTERISED JAW TRACKING device -the opening & closing path, deviation of mandible & TMJ condition can be evaluated. With the help of MYOGRAPHY- the tension in the muscle can be measured, as Muscle is the main component which positions the mandible in the desired occlusion.The Muscle should be Relaxed to Normalcy before Restoration with the help of Transcutaneous Neural Stimulation (T.E.N.S.). The jaw relation should be recorded to this Normalcy state of muscle i.e.- Myocentric relation. Before Esthetic workoutit is important to know various aspect of occlusionlike---When to increase Vertical?,Anterior guidance, Centric Relation, Lateral guidance, Long Centric, importance of occlusal plane & various philosophies of Occlusion

“If it has been measured, it is a Fact; if it has not been measured, it is an opinion”

The course will cover various Functional aspect of Stomatognathic system with hands on Demonstrations for Esthetic Rehabilitation from Neuromuscular Dentistry point of view

Workshop #15

Dental Ergonomics and in-clinic Yoga

Dentistry is the profession which includes various procedures based on co-ordination of hands, eyes and feet. It also needs a good control on muscles for the accurate execution of clinical procedure. Also there is a continuous and prolonged static posture which is necessary during the clinical hours. This makes the dentist vulnerable and leads to chronic musculo-skeletal disorders such as back, neck and shoulder pain which may be the reasons for painful clinical sessions and also an early retirement at times. One can achieve the perfect posture by applying ergonomic methods and also can overcome the musculo-skeletal disorders by practicing specific Yoga based static exercises. This workshop will help the participants to understand the ergonomic postures, some simple stretches which can be participated chairside during the clinical session. It will, also, give a short exercise regime which will help them in overall fitness. Demonstration regarding the postures which should be practiced as a day to day activity to keep the body flexible, supple and active through out the day!!!
