Occlusion - Confusion? (09.30-12.30)

assoc. prof. dr. Ilia Roussou, DDS
  • Occlusion-Confusion, most of the dentists feel this way. Occlusion is one of the most important part of dentistry, but also the most controversy. The equilibrium and the restoration of function of the stomatognathic system is often an everyday challenge during most dental treatments. Even more so for orthodontists and prosthodontists since their treatment plans often require the repositioning of the joint in a three dimensional way against the maxilla. Therefore, it is important for the dentist to study and fully understand the normal function of the TMJoints, understand how the mandible rests against the cranium in a most favourable po-sition, and of course how occlusion and any dental prosthetic restorations should be adjusted without jeopardising the stability of the stomatognathic system. Epidemiological studies suggest that 40-60% of the general population have at least one sign of a temporomandibular disorder (TMD). That means that it’s not uncommon for such a patient to present at the dental clinic seeking for advise or treatment. Also some dental procedures such as dental anesthesia, third molar extraction, endodontic treatment might secondary cause such a disorder. The dentist does not necessarily need to treat this cases if he/she do not feel comfort-able with but they should have the knowledge to recognise the disorders, advise the patient and be able to prevent these disorders from happening during routine dental treatment. In this lecture some common clinical problems that puzzle the orthodontists and the restorative dentists will be discussed.

Endo-periodontal Lesions (14.30-15.30)

assoc. prof. dr. Georgi Tomov, DDS, MS, PhD

  • The structural and functional relation between endodontium and periodontium is a prerequisite for existence of separate group of “border” or combined lesions the diagnosis and treatment of which often hinder the general dentist. The educational goal of the lesson is to familiarize the audience with the anatomical, physiological and iatrogenic ways and prerequisites for development of combined diseases of endodontium and periodontium, their microbiological component and specific clinical expression. Special attention is paid to the diagnosis and differential diagnosis, made on the basis of modern clinical and paraclinical methods. The conservative, surgical and combined approaches and strategies in the treatment of periodontal lesions with secondary endodontic involvement, endodontic lesions with secondary periodontal involvement, simultaneous endodontic and periodontal lesions and iatrogenic lesions are presented in a systematic way. Some modern treatment modalities that could improve the prognosis of the combined diseases of endodontium and periodontium like ozone therapy, the application of lasers and photodynamic therapy are commented in a critical point of view. The lesson is richly illustrated with more than 30 clinical cases of the author.

New approaches to achieve excellence when treating your patients (15.30-18.00)

dr. Kareem Akleh, DMD

  • New technologies have been recently used in orthodontics to help us achieve best results when treating our patients. Cases which were impossible to treat are now treated with excellence especially those patients that come to our offices seeking prosthetic rehabilitation. Those patients have had missing teeth for a long period of time and it used to be impossible to treat them without sacrificing a lot of the dental tissue of the adjacent or opposing teeth. Another breakthrough for these new technologies is their application to treat orthodontic patients with such anomalies which used to be extremely difficult or impossible to treat. Through this lecture we will share together these new approaches and we will learn how to transform all our difficult cases into easy ones achieving best results.
