Periodontitis! How age and regenerative therapy may make a difference (Convention Hall), Prof. Dr. Peter Eickholz
If you want to prevent periodontitis you have to die young? Age and periodontitis, PD Dr. Bettina Dannewitz
Our treatment goals for periodontitis usually requires life-long management of periodontally involved teeth and often includes various treatment modality. Periodontal intrabony defects are the most challenging treatment modality when compared to horizontal bony defects. Many studies have shown that it is possible to regenerate periodontal attachment in localized intrabony defects, including the formation of new root cementum, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone.

Presently, the ideal treatment of periodontal intrabony defects can be treated by regenerative therapy, such as GTR(guided tissue regeneration) and EMD (enamel metric derivative), rather than resective therapy.
I would like to present the long term results of these procedures by comparing GTR with EMD procedures. This presentation also shows how to save teeth for years that many would prognose as questionable to hopeless.

Paradigm shifts in in the era of digitalisation (Convention Hall), Prof. Dr. Irena Sailer
Emerging technologies in contemporary prosthodontics , Prof. Dr. Petra Gierthmühlen, Prof. Dr. Wael Att
The main goal of comprehensive dental rehabilitation is to achieve a pleasing harmony between the face, smile and teeth. Here, a number of tools are being implemented by the clinicians to evaluate the relationship between the different components of the face and to provide guidance for treatment planning as well as for the fabrication of the final restorations. Today, the progressive shift towards implementing digitally-driven 3D engineering tools in reconstructive dentistry is obvious. Compared to the conventional techniques, the ultimate goal of the digital technologies is to improve the quality and capabilities in examination, diagnosis and treatment of the dental patient. It is still questionable, however, whether such digital tools facilitate improved accuracy in data acquisition and assessment, superior efficacy in treatment planning, and more controlled and faster manufacturing process. This presentation will provide an insight about the emerging technologies in contemporary prosthodontics and discuss their possibilities and advantages compared to the conventional approach.

Anterior tooth replacement and esthetics (Convention Hall), Prof. Dr. Matthias Kern
Current surgical concepts for implants in the esthetic zone, PD Dr. Arndt Happe
Die moderne Adhäsiv- und Implantatprothetik ermöglicht uns zahnsubstanzschonenden Einzelzahnersatz in der ästhetischen Zone herzustellen. Dabei besitzen beide Versorgungskonzepte spezifische Vorteile. So sind Adhäsivbrücken sowohl bei engstehenden Nachbarzähnen, in die Lücke gekippten Wurzeln der Nachbarzähne als auch bei noch im Wachstum befindlichen Patienten vorteilhaft. Außerdem weisen sie neben der geringeren Invasivität auch eine kürzere Behandlungsdauer auf. Voraussetzungen sind allerdings karies- und füllungsfreie Nachbarzähne, die über eine ausreichende Klebefläche im Schmelz verfügen. Der Vorteil der Implantate liegt in der sehr guten Langzeitbewährung, der besseren biomechanischen Abstützung des Ersatzzahnes und des größeren Indikationsbereiches.

Root-filled teeth in prosthetic rehabilitation , Prof. Dr. Daniel H.-J. Edelhoff
In den letzten Jahren haben sich verschiedene moderne Therapiemöglichkeiten entwickelt, die wesentliche Bereiche für den Aufbau endodontisch behandelter Zähne abdecken und klassische Behandlungsprinzipien in Frage stellen. Heute sind in zahlreichen Situationen alternative Aufbaumöglichkeiten für endodontisch behandelte Zähne verfügbar durch die der Einsatz von Wurzelkanalstiften umgangen werden kann und die aufgrund der geringeren Invasivität zu bevorzugen sind. Voraussetzung ist jedoch eine detaillierte Kenntnis der Materialeigenschaften transluzenter Keramiken und deren Kombinationsmöglichkeit mit geeigneten adhäsiven Aufbau- und Befestigungsmaterialien, um stark verfärbte Zahnhartsubstanz minimalinvasiv maskieren zu können.
Ziel dieses Vortrages ist es, ein klares Konzept für die Restauration endodontisch behandelter Zähne mit unterschiedlichen Destruktionsgraden an die Hand zu geben, das die aktuellsten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse und Bewertungen berücksichtigt. Anhand zahlreicher klinischer Beispiele wird ein Update zu den verschiedenen Indikationsbereichen vom plastischen Adhäsivaufbauten bis Wurzelkanalstiften gegeben, wie auch das Vorgehen bei stark verfärbten endodontisch behandelten Zähnen beim Einsatz von vollkeramischen Restaurationen dargestellt.

Minimally Invasive Full-Mouth Rehabilitation Adapting Digital Dentistry, Dr. Masayuki Okawa
N.N., Prof. Dr. Matthias Kern
The prosthetic management of the edentulous patient has long been a major challenge for dentistry. The main problem is the mandibular complete denture that lifts up easily with the mouth opening. Most clinicians know that patients report significantly more problems adapting to their mandibular denture. When using our current techniques, most lower dentures exhibit a lack of retention, this can contribute to patient dissatisfaction and acceptance of their new dentures. Normally, in clinical experience, conventional dentures don't create mandibular suction effectiveness.
In 1999, in order to overcome this problem, I established a successful concept and mechanism to fabricate the mandibular suction denture and have been expanding this technique around the world. My presentation will take clinician on a new journey to discover and implement my suction effective mandibular denture techniques.

Consultant Endodontist / Senior Lecturer

I divide my time between working in a large multi-disciplinary specialist practice in central London (4 days/week), and teaching future Specialist Endodontists inthe Postgraduate Unit at Kings' College London Dental Institute (KCL) (1 day/week).

In addition, I have published over 60 papers in peer reviewed scientific journals and co-edited 4 textbooks; 'Principles of Endodontics' is now in its second edition, and is a very popular undergraduate endodontic textbook, 'Pitt Ford's Problem Based Learning in Endodontics' was one of the first PBL textbook in our specialty.
