Athens Session

Athens: Nov. 14-18, 2018

This course is referred to clinicians and dental technicians.

A complete live clinical veneer case from A-Z will be performed during the course, while the dental technicians will be able to follow the laboratory procedures performed by Nondas Vlachopoulos. At the same time in the clinic, live demonstrations, intensive hands on courses will be performed with the clinicians regarding the clinical protocols (photography, smile design, silicon indexes, preparations, provisionals, isolation technics, cementation) under the supervision of Stavros Pelekanos, Panos Bazos and Michalis Diomataris.
The last day will be common in the clinic where the try in, isolation and cementation of the veneers will be live demonstrated.

Full mouth rehabilitation – what has changed? Treatment steps and sequencing.

Basic prosthodontic procedures haven’t changed through the years regarding the occlusal registration techniques (centric relation, maximum intercuspation) and defining the vertical dimension of occlusion. What has changed is the introduction of new materials (Zirconia, Lithium disilicate) and latest technology (CAD CAM) in conjunction with simplified methods that enable the clinician to perform the treatment workflow in the everyday practice.

All the treatment steps starting from analyzing a prosthodontic case to the smile design and final reconstruction will be presented in this course.

At the end of the course all the participants will know:

  • To select and analyze a case regarding the smile design, diagnostic wax up and transferring the information to the patients mouth
  • To be able to choose and perform correctly occlusal registration techniques (maximum intercuspation, centric relation)
  • To be acquainted with semi-adjustable articulators and Facebow registration
  • To understand the properties of the latest ceramic materials and technology and incorporate the minimal invasive procedures in the every day clinical dentistry. To fabricate in an easy way stabilization occlusal appliances
  • 9:00-10:30 Starting with a prosthodontic patient (case analysis)
  • 10:30-11:00 Coffee break
  • 11:00-13:00 Treatment positions and registration techniques
  • 13:00-14:00 Lunch break
  • 14:00-15:30 Techniques for centric relation and facebow registration (demo and hands on)
  • 15:30-16:00 Coffee break
  • 16:00-17:30 Fabrication of a stabilization appliance. A simplified method. (demo and hands on)
