Digital Dentistry Session


Chia Room 2

JUNE 8, 2023


The Digital Approach in Daily Dental Practice.

In dentistry new digital tools such as intra and extra oral scanners, conebeam computed tomography (CBCT), software systems for computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD / CAM) are used in our practices. Innovative manufacturing procedures, such as 3D printing and Laser Sintering are changing the way we treat our patients. As a result, clinical procedures are moving towards completely digital workflows, which can be useful in all fields of dentistry, from conservative and prosthetic, to implant surgery and orthodontics.

9.00 - 9.30 | Digital in Implantology

Alessandro Perucchi

9.30 - 10.15 | ROBOTIC Assisted Implantology - The FUTURE of Minimal Invasive Implant Surgery

Thomas G. Wiedemann

Robot-assisted implant surgery combines the advantages of both the physical constraints of static guides and the flexibility of dynamic navigation. The first F.D.A. approved commercially available robotic system for dental implant surgery accommodates haptic and audio-visual guidance to the implant surgeon. Robotic technology also provides a valuable aid to the dental prosthetic and surgical teams during the entire dental implant rehabilitation. For the implant practitioner, this will improve outcomes and thereby patient retention and serves as a great educational tool when patients are able to see advantages of 3D planning and execution in real time.

The lecture will focus on:

  • the history of robotics in medicine and dentistry
  • the evolution of guided implant surgery: from the disadvantages of freehand, static and dynamic navigation to the advantages and potentials of robotic-assisted surgical implant placement
  • the flexibility of different robotic workflows from treatment planning to implant placement in robot-assisted implant surgery including future applications and options in daily implantology
  • how robotics has changed and will continue to influence the practice of Minimal Invasive Implant Surgery
  • educational aspects for general dentists / dental students and opportunities for practice differentiation

10.15 - 11.00 | Break

Uli Hauschild

11.00 - 11.30 | Break

11.30 - 12.15 | Digital Dental Prothesis

Piero Venezia

The use of digital technology must determine a concrete benefit in the study and laboratory workflows.

The implications of this evolution favorably fall on the patient: reduction of treatment times, cost reductions linked to an increase in productivity, reduction of the invasiveness of prosthetic procedures.

The use of CAD-CAM in fixed prostheses, on implants and natural teeth, is now an indispensable element.

The digital work-flow that can be effectively applied to the construction of the fixed and removable prosthesis will be descrive; indications for the choice of new prosthetic materials will be provided.

12.15 - 13.00 | M. Vision digital workflow from A to Z

Nazariy Mykhaylyuk

During the presentation speaker will discuss all benefits and restrictions of digital workflow for full mouth reconstructions and smile makeovers. Proper choice of equipment and team communication. He will demonstrate clinical cases with all steps video documented. Starting with planning and finishing with bonding procedures.

13.00 - 13.30 | 3D Orthodontics: time to shift

Luis Huanca

Do you already have an intraoral scanner? Do you use it only to order clear aligners (as if you were using a smartphone without downloading any App) or to full potential? Digital orthodontics is possible from A to Z. You don’t have to give up your traditional therapeutic tools, or make compromises. Making digital lab appliances means giving a new, more practical look, for the patient and the orthodontist, to the good appliance you already use. Without bands, time and money are saved, and for the patient, fitting braces becomes like putting on a glove. This applies to both fixed and removable braces. Working digitally to move teeth implies a change of mindset that can be summed up in the motto “Start with the end in mind”. In practice, the digital workflow has as its obligatory starting point the setup of the expected outcome, based on the diagnostic considerations unique to each case. Whereas previously setups were the prerogative of only the most complex cases, with digital orthodontics they become the sine qua non. It is not simply a matter of relying on, albeit good, technicians, but knowing how to direct therapy by making “bends” with the mouse, rather than chairside, saving chair time. Speaking of custom buccal brackets coupled with custom arches, the field narrows to the Insignia system. We will discuss of retention in the digital age and modern versions of digitally “cut” retainer wires that achieve a precision that the human hand cannot approach.
