about speaker >>>
Dr. Fernando Miñambres Freijeiro

Qualified from La Plata University Dental School, Argentina, in 1992, Fernando worked as a General Dentist in his private dental clinic for three years before continuing his education at Santiago de Compostela Dental School, Spain; he received a Master of Science Degree in Endodontics in 2000. In 2002 Fernando received a Diploma of Advanced Studies from Santiago de Compostela Dental School. In May 1995, he opened his private Dental Clinic in Sigrás, La Coruña. He still maintains a private practice limited to Endodontics, since 2000. From 1998, Fernando Miñambres was Clinical Tutor at the University of Santiago de Compostela Dental School, until 2011. Fernando Miñambres devotes much time to teaching Endodontics and he has presented over 80 workshops and lectures in Spain and Portugal. He is currently speaker in different Universities of Spain and Portugal. Fernando is a member of the Spanish Association of Endodontics. Vice President of the Dentist College of La Coruña, until 2011.

Due to the limitations of dental radiology images, only two dimensions of the tooth can be observed, generally the height and width; fortunately, thanks to CBCT scanners, a three-dimensional model of the space can be constructed, which facilitates the diagnosis and treatment plan.

Likewise, in the different stages of endodontic treatment, a very close to three-dimensional obturation has been achieved, however, we will be able to see how in the processes of shaping and cleaning the root canal system the appropriate solutions appear to resolve this issue in a satisfactory manner.

After attending the theoretical part, the participants will be able to experience in practice the cleaning and shaping of root canals with results close to three-dimensionality and be able to achieve excellence in Endo".

10.10-11.20 | Digital orthodontics in comprehensive treatment planning

Speaker: dr. Marco Martignoni

He is founder of the SIPRO Italian society of prosthodontics and oral rehabilitation. Visiting Professor at the International Master in Endodontics and Restorative Dentistry, University of Siena.
Every field of modern dentistry bases its practice on digital technology.
From diagnosis to complex treatments there is a great advantage in being able to use digital data to understand different cases.

more >>>
Digitalization of the patient offers better communication with the patient and easy storage of data but, most important, enables to design virtual tooth movement in case a modification of the position of teeth is needed for a number of reasons and combine dental movement to other dental therapies that may be decided necessary for that particular case.

In adjunction we can combine data from the IOS with the pictures of the patient so to have a comprehensive aesthetic-functional driven plan that will be simple to follow. The possibilities are many and most important are in continuous evolution.

Reduction of the tooth surface is a fine balance between the principle of minimal intervention, the structural requirements of the restorative material and esthetic considerations. Among other considerations are the need to have adequate material to resist the forces of occlusion and to achieve proper anatomic contour.

more >>
With the introduction of high strength ceramics, the use of adhesive cementation and a change from predominately bi-layered materials toward monolithic ones, we now have the ability to markedly reduce the amount of tooth preparation compared to traditional techniques. However, the number of materials with varying physical properties and the lack of research in this area has led to much confusion in the profession.

How much tooth reduction is adequate and for which materials? What effect does the substrate have, when is adhesive cementation recommended and will it contribute to the long-term survival of high strength ceramic restorations? There has also been some uncertainty regarding the optimum adhesive protocol for oxide ceramics and the effectiveness of the bond.

These and other issues will be addressed in this lecture based on the literature and over thirty years of experience with bonded ceramic restorations.

13.00-14.10 | Increasing the Vertical Dimention with Composites - to inject or not inject?

Speaker: dr. Kostas Karagiannopoulos

about speaker >>>
Dr. Kostas Karagiannopoulos

Dr. Kostas is a specialist prosthodontist and an honorary consultant at King’s College, London. He is working in specialist practice in London and he has also been teaching training specialists and dental students since 2008. His area of interest is additive, adhesive, interceptive dentistry and he is a key opinion leader for GC in the UK where he has published and trained 250 dentists in the topic of injection moulding.

Resin composites are used more and more in the daily routine of the restorative dentist. Additive, adhesive dentistry is now preferred by dentists and patients alike and the value of copy/paste in direct restorative dentistry is as high as in the indirect world.

In this presentation we will evaluate the properties and use of injectable composites with a clear silicone matrix taken off a diagnostic wax. I will discuss indications, advantages, limitations and comparisons to alternative techniques. Step by step technical and clinical procedures will be covered and also will compare the digital and analogue workflows in the patient journey. 

14.10-15.10 | Lunch

15.10-16.20 | Integrating smile, prosthetic, surgical & biological parameters in complex full mouth rehabilitations using dental implants

Speaker: dr. Fernando Rojas-Vizcaya

about speaker >>>
Dr. Fernando Rojas-Vizcaya

Dr. Rojas-Vizcaya is Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Prosthodontics at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, NC, USA. He is the Founder and Director of the Mediterranean Prosthodontic Institute, BoneModels, and Dentalhow, and maintains a private practice limited to dental implant surgery and prosthodontics in Castellon, Spain. He received his DDS degree at the University Javeriana of Colombia. He received his University Specialty Degrees in both; Oral Medicine and Implant Surgery at the University Complutense in Madrid. He received his Certificate training in Oral Surgery at Gregorio Marañon Hospital in Madrid, Spain. He completed his post-graduate specialty degree in Prosthodontics along with a Master of Sciences Degree in Prosthodontics, and a Fellowship in Oral Implantology in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA.
In complex cases of patients with terminal dentition, it is essential to determine the position of the final teeth before implant placement. In this way, the relationship of the new teeth with the patient's existing bone can be visualized in order to carry out a treatment plan where the patient's smile is integrated with the prosthesis, and this, in turn, with biology and surgery. In this presentation, each aspect of the process is described in detail from the treatment plan to the final restoration.


16.20-17.30 | Composite veneers and digital science fiction - workflow between the dentist and lab

His career features numerous international professional experiences in Switzerland, Germany and Japan and since 2007 he has been accepted as an active member of the EAED. In 1994 he started an international lecturing career in many of the most prestigious dental symposiums around the world. Particularly devoted to the study of morphology and dental aesthetics, he actively collaborates to the development of materials used for aesthetic dental restoration. He authored the text "Tecnica della Multistratificazione in ceramica" (Ceramic Multilayering Technique) and a “Micerium lab manual” about the use of composite materials, aimed at establishing working protocols for both indirect technique and composite pressing on metal structures and implants and thus introducing his own method, named "Sistema di stratificazione a durezza inversa" TENDER (Inverted Hardness Layering System).

With the arrival of the digital protocol in dentistry, on the last years, there was a big change regarding the work flow both for the introduction of new generation materials and most of all for a better use the “project“ as key of the our work.

Nowaday the digital workflow it is a semplification of the analogyc work phases, and so we use new generation materials, more and more with the best performance and versatile in order to offer high quality solutions but reducing manufacturing cost favouring effectiveness and convenient solution for our patient. 

This possible options to allow a better fluency and the quality of the sinergy between dental office and laboratory and more and more the technician can be involve during the digital acquisition on the patient with the intraoral scann and most of all as a designer to make the final project under morphological and functional design.
