WEST-EAST MIS CONFERENCE Hilton, Tel Aviv, June 20-21, 2019

29 ינואר, 2019

WEST-EAST MIS CONFERENCE
Hilton, Tel Aviv, June 20-21, 2019

Inspired by Dr. Bernard Hahan

Culture has a great influence on esthetics, and what doctors consider to be a success or failure in esthetic dentistry. Cultural trends and lifestyles, are certainly a significant factor to which dentistry must adapt. While in the West, esthetic dentistry is influenced by a classical approach, exposure to Eastern cultures reveals a very different concept of an esthetic ideal. The vision guiding this unique conference is to present these different approaches, and find the harmony in each signature smile.

Welcome reception

Opening Remarks

The Mystery of Harmony

Dr. Bernard Dahan (Israel)

Esthetics have taken a predominant place in our world and have often been associated with harmony. A pleasing arrangement and the right combination of different elements which form a consistent whole, could define harmony in art as well as in the social sciences.

Could it be only a magic proportion, a mathematical formula, or is it more than that?

Different cultures have also influenced and adapted the concept of harmony.

Artists and creators also have their own perspective and interpretation of it, and are influenced by trends, lifestyles and philosophy.

Esthetics in dentistry have also reflected cultures and geographic influences in which harmony is often presented as a signature smile.

Harmony in Surgical Implantology

Bone Support and Harmony, Clinical Decisions on Extraction Day

Dr. Iñaki Gamborena (Spain)

This lecture will focus on the difference in protocols when it comes to surgical and prosthetic criteria to treat anterior implants on an immediate, or delayed manner using only soft tissue grafting procedures as a volume maintainer. We will look into the necessity of grafting, donor site selection and the histologic background that creates the difference. Criteria, techniques and tools will be discussed in order to reach the best, and most consistent results around anterior implant treatments. From key aspect involved in the decision making, to execution; taking into account all aspects which the clinician should take into consideration.

Tissue Management Around Implants as a MUST

Dr. Masana Suzuki (Japan)

To have stability in an implant restoration, it is necessary to have both quality and quantity of soft and hard tissue around it. If we look back, there was a time when the important focus was more on the hard tissue rather than the soft tissue. Only recently, has the importance of soft tissue been generally recognized.

The role of peri-implant soft tissue is simply for function and aesthetics. Function, meaning the defensive barrier which protects an implant restoration. This is the role of peri-implant keratinized tissue. The aesthetic is mainly a requirement for the anterior area. When considering the case of an implant restoration, it is necessary to construct a structure that will be different from those of natural teeth.

During this lecture, the author wishes to consider mainly peri-implant soft tissue management, taking into account both the functional and the aesthetic, from clinical prognosis.

Harmony and Dental Restorations in the Smile Zone

Can Full Dental Restorations Achieve Harmony?

Dr. Eric Van Dooren (Belgium)

Less is More - Contribution of Minimally Invasive Esthetic Dentistry to Harmony - Part 1

Dr. Masayuki Okawa (Japan)

Lately, favorable results are seen in many esthetic & functional rehabilitation cases with minimally invasive techniques.

This became possible due to the development of bio-mimetic advancements in bonding techniques, and treatments using the etiological-based approach.

In addition, the use of the microscope has allowed us to obtain precise and predictable outcomes in many clinical cases.

On the other hand, in the digital age, producing the restorations by CAD/CAM has become common, and it is now up to the tool to assist in the examination, diagnosis and in making treatment decisions.

The future prospective of minimally invasive esthetic rehabilitations adopting a digital approach, would require the following clinical discussions:

1. There are multiple clinical cases reported on the shift from MI to none-invasive treatment by maximizing the preservation of sound tooth structures; but is tooth reduction necessary at all? Or, what is the correct designated location of the finishing line and marginal morphology? Is it a full-veneer or an additive veneer restoration? What will be the amount of tooth reduction needed for respective restoration materials?

2. In case of Bonded Ceramic Restoration (BCR), accuracy is essential to maximizing its predictability, but what would be key points in the clinical workflow to maintain this high predictability when digital technology replaces traditional restoration work?

3. What will be the appropriate material selection guidelines for all relevant materials between the traditional and digital

restorative works?

4. In case of minimally invasive full-mouth rehabilitation treatment providing occlusions, a test drive of a provisional restoration considering both function and aesthetics, is mandatory. However, what would be keys for indirect Bonded Restorations, which do not suppose retention and resistance factors?

5. Development of the 3D facial scanner combined with digital face bow, and digital occlusal instruments is desired.

The speaker wishes to explain all of the above through his clinical cases.

Harmony with Implant Restorations

The Secret of the Emergence Profile: the Harmony Between the Reconstruction and the Biological Tissues

Dr. Iñaki Gamborena (Spain)

The goal to create a harmonious, “aesthetic” outcome around dental implants, that mimics the surrounding dentition and softtissue condition as well as morphology, is indeed difficult to create and maintain long-term. The aesthetic outcome and natural appearance of the implant restoration ultimately depends on the execution and understanding of the team participating in the different treatment phases. Key elements and basic criteria will be discussed in order to achieve the best prosthetic outcome related to the soft tissue volume present at the implant site and to choose the correct technique to maximize the best result.

The presentation focuses on the clinical criteria, sequencing/timing and current prosthetic techniques for maximizing optimal aesthetics in conjunction with the lab technician communication, which is a critical element for achieving gingival integration and aesthetic success.

Is Restoration of Lost Papilla Achievable? - Myth or Reality

Dr. Masana Suzuki (Japan)

Needless to say, that both vertical and horizontal soft tissue levels are important factors which determine the success of the aesthetic restoration. This is especially true of the soft tissue level at the interproximal space, and has a substantial impact on the morphology of the restoration. Soft tissue management in this area is mandatory. However, the reconstruction of soft tissue within the lost interproximal space is very much technique-sensitive, due to its anatomical morphology and its surgical flap design, which needs to be well considered.

During this lecture, the author wishes to consider his own clinical key points along with clinical cases for soft tissue reconstruction at natural tooth to natural tooth, pontic to implant, as well as between implant to implant, implant to pontic and pontic to pontic.

Digital Treatment, Esthetics and Harmony

Less is More - Contribution of Minimally Invasive Esthetic Dentistry to Harmony - Part 2

Dr. Masayuki Okawa (Japan)

The Digital Treatment in the Smile Zone- the Future is already Here

Dr. Florin Cofar (Romania, USA)

Fundamentals of digital dentistry. Treatment architecture. Smile design basics from a clinical approach. Design using natural morphology and enhancing the CAD-CAM’s ability to copy. 3D Printing - Library printed designs / Digital alveolar model.

3D staining technique for monolithic restorations. Digital synapses - Orthodontic and surgical integration - options available today. Clinical workflow from A to Z.

Friday, June 21st

Harmony at the Dentogingival Interface

Dr. Mirela Feraru (Israel)

In order to achieve a harmonious esthetic result of indirect restorations at the smile zone - the operator should not only choose the material of the restoration, but also analyze and relate to the abutment type and color, and to the integration of the whole restorative complex with the surrounding tissue, whether of a natural tooth (vital or non-vital), or an implant.

In cases where different types of adjacent abutments should be restored, the treatment is even more challenging. One should plan ahead the different phases of the perio-restorative treatment in order to end up with a harmonious natural looking result, by choosing the most suitable materials for each site, so that the combined abutment-crown complexes will blend with each other, as well as with the adjacent dentition and with the vital periodontium, in an esthetic and healthy environment.

State of the art strategies will be presented where different abutment types were to be restored, utilizing diverse laboratory and clinical restorative techniques.

The concepts of Model Based Restoration and Cervical Contouring will be presented and analyzed in a variety of esthetically challenged clinical cases.

The Inter-Disciplinary Approach to Achieving Harmony

Digital Workflow in the Office: Is it a Reality in Daily Practice and for a Single Doctor?

Dr. Eric Van Dooren (Belgium) & Dr. Florin Cofar (Romania, USA)

Our main goal is to reach a better understanding of the possibilities of digital dentistry today and be able to leverage them based on both clinical and entrepreneurial efficiency, and current restorative possibilities, while trying to distinguish between what is a proof of concept (something that can be done) and an efficient workflow, from a dentist’s point of view. This lecture will explore the digital tool kit available today for traditional analogue concepts and workflows. Specifically, it will relate to 3 important aspects of a complete rehabilitation: copying natural shapes and transferring natural morphology to monolithic restorations; designing trans-mucosal segments, by copying natural root profiles; and guided surgery integration in implantperio-prosthetic cases.

Harmony in Complex Cases

The Challenge: Achieving Harmony & Managing Esthetic Dilemmas in Complex Cases

Dr. Iñaki Gamborena (Spain)

Planning for aesthetic predictability and success in implant dentistry represents a great challenge for the dental team. The aesthetic outcome and natural appearance of the implant restoration ultimately depends on the execution and understanding of the team participating in the different treatment phases. This presentation focuses on the different clinical criteria and current surgical-prosthetic techniques for maximizing optimal aesthetics in conjunction with orthodontics, which is a critical element for achieving gingival integration and aesthetic success in complex implant failures.

Is Harmony still Achievable after Complications? The “Via Dolorosa”

Dr. Masana Suzuki (Japan)

For the aesthetic implant restoration, peri-implant soft tissue dehiscence is one of several complications. The solution to this complication may be roughly divided into the following three options:

  • Removal and relocation of the implant
  • Re-fabrication of the prosthetic component and reconstruction of the surrounding tissue
  • Sleeping implant and alternative restoration

By combining these three, we can define a solution to the peri-implant, soft tissue dehiscence issue. However, this is also considered a technically-challenging solution. Actually, a decade ago, peri-implant soft tissue reconstruction was said to be impossible to achieve. However, recently, some articles applying CTG have been evaluated. Yet, these articles are limited to cases of single implants. For multiple implant cases, the solution would become more complex.

During this lecture, the author wishes to consider mainly the technical solution to recover peri-implant, soft-tissue dehiscence for multiple implant cases. 

Please note: This is a tentative program and is still subject to changes. A final scientific program will be published closer to conference date.

See You at the West-East Conference!
