Lecture
Economic Solutions in Dentistry - Are High-End Solutions Always Necessary?
Despite advances in technological developments or dental materials, mechanical or biological failures are still being experienced in dentistry yielding to reconstructions that are more costly or to the cost of more tissues. Considering the increased lifetime of human beings, restoration/reconstruction cycle could in fact be decreased utilizing more economical alternative materials. This lecture will highlight such possibilities and discuss their longevity.

Learning objectives:
  1. Introduction of new materials and economic solutions
  2. Learning adhesive possibilities
  3. Protocols for repair
New Materials, New Challenges in Reconstructive Dentistry
With the advances in technological developments and introduction of subtractive and additive processing methods, new materials are being integrated in the dental therapy modalities for tooth- and implant-borne reconstructions. While the developments in the biomaterials field are cutting edge, fundamental properties of the materials do not change that frequently. In this lecture, an overview will be given on the current clinical possibilities, limitations and future perspectives with new reconstruction materials with a focus on metals, polymers, hybrids and ceramics.

Learning objectives:
  1. Update on current reconstruction materials
  2. Introduction to new materials and their limitations
  3. Introduction to new technologies
