Digital Planning for Esthetic and Functional Success
Webinars facilitated by Drs. Ingeborg De Kok, Wendy Clark, Renata Camino Navarro and Ibrahim Duqum (University of North Carolina)
Speakers will review the basic principles that guide the digital process and how it can be applied in the clinical dental practice. Particlar emphasis will be given to understanding the process and indications of 2D and 3D digiatal smile design and effective digital communication strategies among the dental care team.
Webinars facilitated by Prof. Luigi Nibali and Dr. Emily Lu (King's College London)
This webinar will discuss how the latest advances in periodontal treatment have pushed the boundaries of what teeth affected by periodontitis can be retained. The definition of 'hopeless' tooth will be reviewed and both non-surgical and surgical treatment options will be described.
This presentation will highlight the key biologic regulators of the junctional epithelium in health, disease and following periodontal and implant surgery. Drawing on the latest research, clinical implications of this knowledge will be discussed.
3D Orthodontic Diagnosis
Webinars facilitated by Prof. Marie Cornelis and Assoc. Prof. Paolo Cattaneo (University of Melbourne)
Traditional orthodontic diagnosis relies on 2-dimensional images and plaster casts, with treatment outcomes heavily relying on clinical skills. Digital technology slowly made its way into the orthodontic world at the end of last century. CBCT imaging and digital models only entered our clinics at the beginning of this millennium. Does CBCT technology improve our diagnostic performance? Can 3D digital treatment planning improve outcomes?
This session will describe the impact and advantages of digital technology in the field of orthodontics, with the aim of improved personalized patient care. The lecture will identify areas where digital technology can help clinicians improve orthodontic treatment. The lecture also will focus on the possibilities of CAD-CAM technology for customized treatments.
Third Molar Surgery
Webinars facilitated by Drs. Raymond C.W. Wong, Intekhab Islam and Lim Li Zhen (National University of Singapore)
The speaker will review the basic sciences, basic principles, surgical anatomy and techniques involved in surgical removal of the third molar. He will then go through the common complications that may occur with an overview of the updated evidence for management.
The speakers will review the criteria on case selection, how to evaluate the patient clinically and radiographically and stratify how to minimize risks in case selection.
