Removable Methamorphosis, a digital workflow
In the next years, as predicted by different epidemiological studies of tooth loss, a decline in edentulism incidence is expected, however due to the increasing global aging population the process will require several decades and more efficient solutions for prosthetic retrieval and maintenance. Tooth loss remain one of the most invalidating condition for patients, their rehabilitation with conventional complete dentures (CD) is still a very diffused and predictable treatment approach. Moreover the CD knowledge is determinant also for planning implant supported or retained prostheses. The recent advancements in digital technology have led to the use of CAD-CAM systems in the design and manufacturing of CDs. The Digital approach can simplify clinical protocols comparing to traditional one using materials with improved properties.
The aim of the lecture is to share with the participants our experience with digital denture workflow, in order to evaluate chair-side and laboratory times, advantages and disadvantages comparing to conventional procedures. The patient outcomes also will be evaluated in terms of retention, adaptation and clinical satisfaction.

The digital evolution of an instrumentation technique for the management of challenging anatomies in clinical endodontics
The root canal system is often a highly complicated canal network of multi-planar curvatures and anastomotic pathways. Reaching the biological and design objectives of instrumentation in severely curved canals, deep apical splits and complicated canal systems can be an extremely challenging aspect of root canal treatment. The aim of this lecture is to introduce a new conservative instrumentation concept with flexible electrical discharge machined martensitic files for the predictable and safe management of extremely challenging root canal systems and the digital evolution of the technique to a motorized controlled one with the new Jeni motor.

Modern concepts to approach a full-mouth rehabilitation: from the analogical to the digital world
The incidence of Non-carious lesions (NCLs) is increasing steadily in occidental communities and often they may induce a severe condition of tooth wear. In the past, a substantial loss of hard dental tissue implied an invasive therapy approach with full-crown coverage. However, the development and improvement of adhesive dentistry marked a shift of paradigm which allowed to treat these patients with minimally invasive and/or additives approaches. The aim of this conference is to elucidate treatments protocols and workflows of full mouth rehabilitations using additive techniques and full-digital approaches.

Digital Restorative Dentistry: the simple dentist point of view
The general practitioner could sometimes get scared, or get intimidated at least, when learning about digital dentistry. Because it usually looks “complicated, time consuming (to use and to get constantly updated), and most of all expensive”. This presentation is thus dedicated to the simple dentist, providing some understandable and clinical answers to the conservative and prosthodontic practice.

Digital Perio Plastic Surgery - How to use technology to achieve Predictabiliy
Nowadays the aesthetic rehabilitation requires a multidisciplinary interaction increasingly intense. Separate specialties leads to inadequate and often patient dissatisfaction with the end result. The digital workflow with the union of pink and white aesthetic is the big key for predictability and success in aesthetic rehabilitations.
The main point of the presentation is to show how perio plastic surgery combined with implant or natural teeth restoration can improve aesthetic results in complex cases. Using predictable and simple digital workflow to achieve better results for the patients.

Minimally invasive dentistry in the change from analogue to digital
The analogue treatment concepts in minimally invasive dentistry are well established. Digital tools are increasingly supporting us today in dental photography, treatment planning, smile design, intra-oral impressions and the manufacture of dental ceramics. This lecture compares analogue and digital treatment concepts in minimally invasive dentistry.
Color analysis and shade selection strategies for the anterior teeth following Bio-Emulation principles
Achievement of aesthetic restorations that resemble natural teeth represent a great challenge for both dentists and technicians. Obtaining optimal results with the minimum number of try-in tests or repetitions necessarily implies performing a systematic and exhaustive shade analysis. Advanced photographic techniques need to be used for this task, including different kinds of illumination and precise calibration of RAW files.
Defining proper shade selection strategies for both composites and ceramics is of paramount importance for our daily work. The Bio-Emulation approach provides specific tools designed to increase dramatically the accuracy of our shade matching, including the custom_eyes shade tabs as well as the “state of the art” eLAB protocol.
Ultimately, a successful treatment will always be the outcome of a good communication with patient and perfect teamwork between dentist and technician.

Post-COVID 19: take the opportunity and adapt your clinic to the future
In the midst of the resumption of the first biological pandemic of the digital age, there are many uncertainties and concerns about the future. However, as in any crisis, more important than problems is the focus on solutions and, not least, on opportunities. This biological crisis allowed us to highlight some aspects that were usually secondary, but that can be fundamental to the well-being and health of dental staff and patients. I am not just referring to the concern with SARS-CoV-2, which should not distract us from other equally important aspects, but to the internal environmental conditions of our dental clinics. We must take advantage of some of the changes to diagnose and implement background measures that relate to the overall quality of air, water, air conditioning, noise and lighting in dental practices. In this presentation, the quality parameters to be taken into account, the means of monitoring and control, as well as the implementation mechanisms related to these themes will be presented and discussed, which will probably be striking in the dental practice of the present and future.

Understanding the digital workflow and implementing it to your daily practice - the time is “now”.
From its origins to the present times Dentistry have evolved to become entirely digital. As such, the use of systems such as intraoral scanners, 3D xray imaging and printers as well as milling systems brought such enormous benefits that will become the future of our profession. For this reason, sooner rather then later, we all need to enter this world, understand it, put it in practice and use all its advantages to the service of our clinical procedures.

Why I am abandoning visual color methods
After taking the most out of any information that a shade guide can bring. Deep study and clinical experience on stock shade guides, material oriented shade guides, customized shade guides, button try-ins or direct mock-up have several problems, the most critical one, the subjectivity of the human eye. How we will use digital technology to avoid color troubles and do true predictions?
