The Scientific Basis Of Dental Esthetics
Proffitt classifies Dental esthetics as Macro-esthetics: The face in all three planes of space, Mini-esthetics: The smile framework bordered by the lips on smile animation and Micro-esthetics: Tooth proportions in height and width, Gingival shape and contour, Black triangles and Tooth shade. Understanding and managing dental esthetics is an essential part of contemporary dental practice. However, there is little to guide the dentist as to the anterior tooth size, shape and orientation for optimum esthetics. This presentation summarizes recent research into dentists’ and the public’s perception of dental esthetics and provides practical data on optimizing anterior esthetics.
- Know the public perception of dental esthetics and the range of acceptability.
- Know whether dental esthetics differs among different ethnic groups.
Understand how dentists alter dental esthetics when restoring their patients.
Scanning and milling. Three dimensional printing and laser sintering. The way fixed restorations are being fabricated is rapidly changing and provides us with access to exciting new materials. This presentation reviews the available systems and explains how they all work.
- Know the current status of CAD/CAM dentistry.
- Understand how to select systems for your practice.

Biocompatibility of dental alloys is questioned whenever they are associated with other metals in the same oral cavity. Corrosive electro-chemical reactions caused by different alloys taking place in the presence of saliva lead to dissociation of metal ions resulting in various biological effects. Although all these reasons for a denture incompatibility are known by now, only poor consideration is bestowed upon them. A survey in dental laboratories in Germany revealed that currently more than 3 different alloys are used on average for the production of new dental prostheses leading to considerable electric field strengths. Typical effects of such a “metal-mix” are reactions of hypersensitivity, alterations of the oral tissues as well as dissolution of hard tooth tissues and luting agents emphasizing the significance of electro-chemical reasons for the development of a marginal misfit of fixed dentures or root posts. Moreover, changes of the ecological balance inside the oral cavity resulting from distinct impacts of electric fields on different oral microbes must be discussed whenever diseases and complaints of the oral mucosa or periodontal tissues occur. Therefore, every prosthetic treatment should comply with the repeated postulation to use only one alloy inside the same oral cavity. In this connection, the dentist must always identify the alloys located in the patient’s mouth in order to select an appropriate one for the denture planned. With respect to some static limitations, ceramic or resin materials can be used alternatively.

Actual State And Future Of Digital Dentistry
In the last years a tremendous step forward in CAD/CAM was made and still a lot of new applications are in development. Main aspects have been the improvement of intraoral optical impression systems and the mostly full-automatic calculation and design of functional surfaces of restorations. This knowledge-based description of tooth morphologies, called the biogeneric tooth model, can be used for reconstructing the missing tooth surfaces suitable for the individual situation. The model was already introduced successfully for inlay/onlay and crown reconstructions and has now been extended to larger restorations. Additionally, new procedures to include the dynamic occlusion are possible avoiding interferences during jaw movements. This all together enhances the possibilities and quality in treatment planning and diagnostic issues. This lecture will give an update of actual computerized concepts and their clinical applications and will provide a look into the future and potential of new developments.

Full-Mouth Rehabilitation – A Step-By-Step Approach
In the elderly population a number of factors can contribute to excessive tooth wear with subsequent reduction of the VDO. This can have adverse effects on an individual’s ability to chew food, on their facial appearance and on their quality of life. Correction of reduced VDO in dentate individuals is a complex and challenging process that is typically associated with potential risks. This presentation will focus on etiology and contributing factors for loss of the VDO in dentate individuals leading to the need for its correction. Careful diagnosis of potential cases and drawing appropriate treatment plans needs a fair amount of experience and skill to ensure successful and satisfying results. Typically more than one option exists for treatment of such complex cases and the patient must be made aware of all possible treatment options. The process of case presentation using diagnostic wax-ups and extra- and intra-oral images, review of treatment options and obtaining patient consent to proposed treatment are essential elements for success. In this presentation two cases that needed full-mouth rehabilitation due to loss of VDO will be presented and discussed in detail. Diagnosis, treatment options and step-by-step treatment stages will be presented. At the end of this presentation the audience will be able to list the causes of loss of VDO in the elderly dentate individuals, properly diagnose such cases in order to identify predisposing factors and draw treatment options with pros and cons of each. The audience will also become familiar with the treatment stages from correction of the VDO with provisional restorations/appliance to selection of the most appropriate definitive restorations.

To Bleach Or Not To Bleach, The Dilemma
Before civilization, and since time immemorial, one universal language has always prevailed, the smile. Therefore, early men knew that teeth were not just a tool for survival but also served esthetic purposes. Ancient Egyptians were infatuated with the concept of eternal beauty and perfection. This propensity for perfection led them to conceive the world’s first system of teeth whitening. This technique was performed using pumice and wine vinegar, combined with chew sticks to clean and scrape the teeth. As civilizations began to prosper, sparkling teeth were a sign of nobility and wealth. Nowadays, esthetics is the aim of every patient and practitioner. Teeth whitening is one of the most requested cosmetic services and its popularity is ever-growing. It is widely used in and out dental clinics, with and without medical surveillance. But is it really safe to whiten teeth? In this lecture, all side effects, risks and limitations of external and internal whitening on different levels are exposed and detailed: Gastric and respiratory mucosa, temporomandibular joint, soft and hard tissues, oral hydration, dental restorations and dental hypersensitivity. Finally, recommendations concerning preventive and curative treatments and possible limitations to whitening techniques are presented in order to keep this procedure a safe one. Having a bright, beautifying, confidence-boosting smile will then be a reality.

History Of Dentistry Through The Ages; With Synopsis About Alexandria Dental School
The Egyptian nation was the one in which civilization first took its rise and had its earliest development. From the time of Menas king of Egypt (3892 B.C.), the inhabitants of the Valley of the Nile were well advanced on the path of civilization, in medical science and the art of healing. This is demonstrated in several Papyruses of which Ebers Papyrus and Edwin Smith Papyrus are the most documented. Treatment of dental and gingival maladies were described in the 20 meters long of Ebers Papyrus, which is believed to be dated back 3700 years before the Christian era. In the book “History of Herodotus” that is written 2500 years ago medical specialties were practiced in the land of the Pharaohs. Dental art in ancient Egypt was also very far advanced, both filled and artificial teeth were found in Mummies. In the Renan’s Mission de Phenicie, 1862 the finding of wire-ligated bridges was attributed to the level of civilization of Thebes and Memphis Dentistry have advanced in leaps ever since. In this lecture history of dentistry through the ages will be presented with reference to the role of Egypt in modern dentistry and how the Alexandria Dental School was established by the pioneers of our past.

Experimental Investigation Of Gingival Discoloration Occurring After Restorative Dentistry
With the increased use of non-precious dental casting alloys as substitutes for semiprecious and precious gold alloys in restorative dentistry an increase of gingival discoloration after crown and bridgework can be observed. It is generally expected, that mainly the effects of corrosion lead to this tissue change. In order to prove this thesis, an investigation was undertaken to show the presence of products of corrosion of different dental materials in discolored gingival tissue. The energy-dispersive X-ray microanalysis on histologic sections of gingival tissue used in this study helps to qualify and quantify different types of metal ions and corrosion products. The different factors determining corrosion especially under clinical conditions are demonstrated and discussed in the light of new research and recent personal studies.

Ass. Prof. Tarek Salah Morsi
Head of Prosthodontics Department, Ain Shams University & British International University (BUE), Cairo, Egypt.Abstract
Longitudinal observations of bonded anterior ceramic restorations reveal an overwhelming success if the basic principles of bonding and minimal invasive procedure for the preservation of enamel are followed. In addition, new high strength all ceramic systems for fixed partial dentures have been developed in response to patient demand for tooth-colored and metal free restorations. Dental materials continue to evolve and improve in many areas. Zirconia restorative materials are one of the fastest evolving ceramic materials currently in dentistry. There are a few very common questions asked by practitioners regarding the cementation and adhesion process of zirconia ceramic restorations. This particularly applies to the Minimal invasive procedures with CAD/CAM zirconia restorations. This lecture will focus on the recent advances of zirconia materials and their applications in minimally invasive prosthetic procedures with innovative restoration designs, with emphasis on the recommended bonding protocols for such restorations.)

Progressive Smile Makeover Concept
The future of dentistry is shifting towards less intervention in all the sub fields of dentistry being surgery, Implantology, orthodontics, endodontics or restorative. That does not mean we will quit doing teeth preparations or extractions. But the less aggressive, short treatment protocols and solutions will replace the more complicated time consuming ones. That will be treatment solutions for cases it would have needed longer and more aggressive clinical techniques 10 years ago. Yet the quality of the treatment results should not become compromised. That is why case indication for any suggested treatment plan must be medically and ethically justified as there is no "one size fits all "in dentistry as in everything else in life. There has been an endless debate among general dentists and orthodontists whether crooked teeth preparations for instant veneers is an aggressive practice. In this presentation, we will introduce the progressive smile makeover concept explaining the ABR technique, align, bleach and restore technique. The Progressive Smile makeover concept came after 12 years of hard work in smile assessments. The ABR technique is based on aligning the teeth first before any restorative consideration whether that been ceramics or composites keeping the minimal invasive approach in mind.
Key points to be discussed in my Presentation:. Smile assessment using Keynote (pink & white), Treatment planning Ortho, restorative, periodontics or Surgery, Alignment for General Practitioner (removable Inman Aligner VS Clear aligners), Bleaching as part of the Progressive Smile Makeover Concept (PSMC), Restoration (Edge Bonding VS Veneers) when to do what in the minimal invasive world, Cases, examples, step by step full protocol will be presented with HD photography.

In TMDU he became a professor of Masticatory Function Control in 2000 and a director of Dental Implant Clinic in 2001. In 2004 he became a professor and chair of Oral Implantology and Regenerative Dental Medicine in TMDU. During his academic carriers his interests were always bone and periodontal tissues. He is currently focusing his research on bone and soft tissue regeneration.
New direction of bone regeneration
Oral rehabilitation with dental implant treatment is predictable, making highly functional and esthetical recoveries possible. However, this modality is difficult when bone is not sufficient at the implant installation site. It is also obvious that certain amount of bone and soft tissues is prerequisite around the implant for functional and esthetic outcomes with long-term good prognosis. Thus, bone augmentation is frequently required in our daily practice.
Interestingly, bone augmentation technique without any graft material in maxillary sinus has been reported. We experienced neither complication nor implant loss in this graft-less maxillary sinus augmentation technique.
We and others have reported that gradual elevation of periostium can produce bone over the basal bone in animal experiments. Furthermore, we have evolved this idea and developed “Expansible Guided Bone Regeneration (E-GBR)”, in which the space for bone regeneration under the barrier membrane increases gradually. In E-GBR, extensive bone is formed in the space under the barrier membrane.
Graft-less sinus augmentation and E-GBR clearly indicate that “respecting endogenous key players and providing space” are an important concept for bone augmentation. Instead of applying some key players exogenously, our strategy can solve all the problems, which the current tissue engineering strategies encounter.

Knowledge Based Biological Key Factors For Success In Dental Implantology And Guided Bone Regeneration Set New Surgical Standards: The Merits Of The New Key‐ Technologies Piezotome‐Surgery, Biomaterials And Aprf
Bone healing, osseointegration of dental implants and biomaterials and guided bone‐ regeneration follow the same biological principle: after “natural” or iatrogenic lesion of alveolar bone the first step in successful healing and osseointegration of dental implants and biomaterials is a sufficient immobilization to enable vascularization as general base of any healing and to enable the periosteum ‐ which is the sole carrier of bone healing – to restore bone and osseointegrate dental implants and biomaterials. Piezotome‐surgery is now proven to induce soft‐tissue‐ and bone‐healing by transducing ultrasonic waves to alveolar bone already with the preparation of mucoperiostal flaps and osteotomies for implant‐insertion or bone‐augmentation. New self‐hardening biomaterials combined with Platelet Rich Fibrin amplify this Piezotome‐effect by further enhancement of vascularization and delivery of autogenous bone‐morphing‐proteins. These newly defined gold‐standards provide less invasive surgeries and significantly less patient morbidity and complications‐rates as recent studies suggest. The lecture gives an overview over the most recent results of experimental and clinical studies performed by the lecturer and related researchers, featuring Piezotome‐surgery, new biomaterials and the use of Choukroun ́s aPRF and iPRF‐technology and easy‐to‐obtain clinical parameters to enhance and determine the long‐term‐prognosis of dental implants with case demonstrations.

Digital Implant Dentistry : Imaging, Planning, Placement And Restoration
Recent developments in digital technology are rapidly changing the way we approach patients to be treated with dental implant dentistry. It is therefore imperative that the implant treatment team have common knowledge and goals in order to achieve optimal patient care and treatment success. Nowadays, digital implant dentistry starts with treatment planning implant (CBCT & surgery software) and implant guide surgery. Following the guided placement protocol, the restorative dentistry is undertaken with an intra-oral scan system (optical impressions) followed by CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufactory) technology to design prothesis without model. Routine digital implant dentistry flow is becoming inescapable to incorporate new trends into your daily practice and to improve quality of your dental implant treatment.

Dental Implant Complications – Prevention And Solutions
Dental implants are an option for replacing missing teeth for the reconstruction of function, phonetic and aesthetics with high success rate. However, there are a myriad of surgical, biological and biomechanical complications associated with surgical implant placement and restorative treatment. To enhance success and minimize dental implant complications, it is essential to know the types of complications that have been published in the dental literature and understand the causes of each complication. This presentation will identify the most common surgical, biological and biomechanical complications and discuss the optimal method of minimizing or preventing their occurrence.

How To Avoid And How To Manage Complications In Implant Dentistry: Practical Prosthodontic Pearls For Your Daily Practice
Tony Daher, DDS, MSEd, FACP, FICD. And Vahik Paul Meserkhani, DDS, MSD, FAAID
Many complications related to implant prosthodontics are described in the dental literature. Some of these complications will be described and a systematic approach will be presented how to avoid and manage them. Prosthodontists are faced everyday with the “growing problem” of implant complications due to the increase of treatment of patients with dental implants. Prosthodontists are asked to help solve the clinical situations where implants are misaligned or when mechanical complications are present such as screw loosening/fracture, implant fractures, framework, resin base and veneering material fractures, opposing prosthesis fractures, and overdenture mechanical retention problems. Using many clinical situations examples, the presentation will identify the most common implant complications and will focus on many practical clinical pearls, “Take-Home Tips”, serving as helpful reminders on how to prevent these complications from occurring. Moreover the management of these complications will be described in depth in an attempt to provide guidance and direction to the clinician when he or she experiences any of these problems.

Should Cement Retained Implant Supported Restorations Belong To The Past?
Cemented retained natural teeth supported restorations attains a long history of success, that explains the popularity of cement retained implant prostheses due to relative simplicity & ease of fabrication. However, the residual trapped cement around dental implant supported restorations has clinically revealed many drawbacks: an average of 60- 80 % of likelihood that excess cement would show a sign of inflammatory reaction to peri- implant tissues was recorded. The manifestation of the disease can occur as early as 4 months to up 9 years after final prosthetic delivery. As a matter of fact there is no clear reason on why does residual cement induced peri-implantitis develop in some patients and would not develop in others. Some claimed that Residual cement retained induced peri-implantitis might develop as a result of the inhabitation of the continuous flushing of the microorganisms from the peri-implant sulcus. This presentation will highlight the role of excess residual cement around implant-supported restorations, and the management of excessive cement induced peri-implantitis.

Smart Materials For Implant And Tissue Engineering
Recent technologies in materials science and engineering allowed designing of composite materials with superior mechanical, physical, and biological properties that far exceed those of pure elements. Beginning at nano-scale level, the building blocks of smart materials are assembled and engineered and its properties are optimized on micro-scopic level. In combination with principles of tissue engineering, restoration of damaged and atrophic tissue is now possible. New composite ceramics are currently available for use as implants, scaffolds for tissue engineering and as prosthetic appliances for damaged tissue. Controlled rate of degradation and ion release are adjusted to accelerate new tissue remodeling.This lecture presents several tracks of smart materials used to managed difficult cases where traditional bone grafting and implant placement are compromised. Nano-porous zirconia scaffolds enriched with hydroxy apatite are custom made using CBCT and CAD/CAM technology and provide a direct method for management of severely atrophic alveolar ridges. Restoration of facial esthetics after trauma and respective surgeries could be similarly achieved using bone replacement therapy using advanced biopolymers. Case presentation will be demonstrated in every presented track.

Modified Ridge Splitting And Immediate Implant Placement In Deficient Anterior Maxillary Alveolar Ridge
Our aim was to describe and evaluate a new modification of the classical alveolar bone splitting for the treatment of the narrow ridge in the maxilla using the dream expander of IBS system. Twenty patients aged from 20-50 years who presented with narrow edentulous ridges (2.9-4.7 mm) were treated by ridge-splitting using the dream expander of IBS system and immediate implant placement. IBS® implants were used. Inclusion criteria were: inadequate maxillary buccolingual dimension, 2.9–5 mm of crestal width, and sufficient height from alveolar ridge tip to nasal cavity floor. Cone-beam computed tomography was used preoperatively and postoperatively at 0 week and at 24 weeks to assess the morphology of the ridge and the outcome of the operation. Twenty implants were placed in the 20 patients selected, and none failed. At follow up all the implants functioned well and we saw no sign of gingival recession. All the data were analyzed by Paired t-test for pre/post operative bone width. Difference was considered significant if P value was less than 0.05. Mean value for presplit width was 3.92 ± 0.5 mm while post-split mean width was 5.13 ± 0.1 mm. Mean gain in crest ridge after ridge splitting was 1.22 ± 0.114 mm. Statistical analysis showed significant differences in width before and after operation (P > 0.05). For a narrow edentulous ridge in an aesthetic zone, ridge splitting using the dream expander of IBS system is a reliable technique. This technique provides an acceptable inter-cortical gap, decreases the risk of necrosis of the outer cortex, and provides a firm-wall box for the placement of an implant.

Decision Making In Implant Dentistry
Dental implants have contributed significantly to the treatment of patients with worn out or lost dentition. With many dentists becoming involved in implant dentistry, clinicians should make every effort to avoid any possible complications, especially when attempting to treat advanced / complex cases. The majority of these complications arise due to failure to properly diagnose and formulate an efficiently planned treatment approach for each individual case. Understanding patient’s specific needs, successfully restoring the function, aesthetics, as well as achieving and maintaining osseointegration, are the main objectives for a sound treatment plan in implant dentistry. This lecture will present three completed cases with variable degrees of difficulty showing in detail the steps of the preoperative planning as well as the surgical and prosthetic aspects of the treatment.

Extraction Socket Preservation Using Socket Shield Technique, Is It A Myth Or Reality
Ideally, a method for the prevention of alveolar ridge resorption after extraction should be cost-effective and minimally invasive. Various methods of guided bone regeneration (GBR) have been described to retain the original dimension of the bone after extraction. All these procedures are cost-intensive and technique-sensitive. In contrast, the socket shield technique is cost-effective but still technique-sensitive. Socket shield technique avoids the resorption of the bundle bone by leaving a buccal root segment (socket shield) in place. Conclusion The presented cost-effective but still technique-sensitive socket shield technique avoids the resorption of the bundle bone by leaving a buccal root segment (socket shield) in place.

Pathway from natural dentition to immediate implant placement
Predictable immediate implant placement is a demand for all dental implant practitioners, after fulfilling possible endodontic, restorative and microsurgical approaches to save the natural dentition, thus the preparation for the procedure through treating the present infected root and the osteotomy site, site development and implant positioning is a necessity.
The presentation will go through:
-Decision making, when to utilize more tools and techniques to save a tooth? How to microscopically approach hopeless teeth? When to extract? When to immediately place the implant?
-How to preserve implant site before, after and during extraction procedure to help maintain the site in a state of aesthetic predictability
-Root canal disinfection
-Osteotomy site disinfection and preparation
-Ideal implant positioning, in respect to surrounding tissues and biomechanics
-If the site deters from the ideal, procedures using orthodontics, bone grafting, or soft tissue grafting should be instituted to receive a well-placed implant.

Tooth Transplantation, Surgical Uprighting, and Re-implantation
This presentation will discuss the indications for tooth transplantation, particularly in the area of dental implants. The surgical technique will be described in detail, and long-term results presented. The commonest teeth to transplant are impacted upper canines and also transplantation of lower third molars into carious first molar sockets. The relationship of this procedure to re-implantation of avulsed teeth will be discussed, and also the concept of uprighting impacted second molar teeth. This seems to be becoming a commoner problem since orthodontists are no longer removing a tooth in each quadrant before performing orthodontics, and this often means that the lower second molars have inadequate space to erupt.
This lecture will discuss a range of implant complications including implants displaced into the maxillary sinus, implants causing damage to the inferior alveolar nerve and its branches, and also the problem of medication-related osteonecrosis in relation to dental implants.

The Diode Laser In Oral Surgery
Diode lasers were introduced to dentistry in the early 90s of the last century. Due to compact size and reasonable pricing they have become the most popular and most sold laser by far. In comparison to other lasers there are some intrinsic, technical disadvantages that have not been overcome until now. Many companies have improved the efficiency of their lasers using different strategies. The aim of this presentation is to show that diode lasers can be used quite efficiently using modern treatment protocols in oral surgery. We will highlight our strategy for only a few indications to illustrate the use and options of the laser. Video documentation will show the workflow for the different procedures.

Complications Of Orthognathic Surgery
These could be due to anesthesia or due to the procedure itself. Improper selection of the patient could raise psychological problems to both the patient and the surgeon. Improper planning might affect drastically the occlusion and the facial esthetics. Complications due to the procedure could be immediate or delayed. Primary or secondary hemorrhage might happen. Also, improper oteotomy might lead to poor stability, relapse, mal or non-union.
The most serious complications in Le- Fort osteotomies are retro-bulbar hemorrhage and loss of vision.
This lecture will elaborate on the causes and how to avoid them and the proper management of each complication.

Aggressive Jaw Cysts And Cyst-Like Lesions
Backgrounds: The jaws are host to several cysts and neoplasms, mainly due to the tissues involved in tooth formation. Odontogenic aggressive jaw cysts are destructive jaw lesions with the propensity to recurrence.
Methods: Thirty patients with different aggressive jaw cysts were operated upon in our Department in the period from Jan. 2005 to Dec. 2009. Their age ranged from 12 to 25 years with a mean of 15 years. Eighteen were males and twelve were females. The pathological diagnoses were; odontogenickeratocyst (13), ameurosymal bone cyst (5), dentigerous cyst with ameloblastic changes (2), unicysticameloblastoma (5), mural ameloblastoma (3), and Gorlin's cyst (2). Eighteen patients were fresh cases while twelve cases were recurrent. All patients were subjected to diagnostic work up. All patients were surgically treated in aggressive way, especially recurrent lesions via adequate resection with safety margins (one dental unit on each side), immediate reconstruction by bone graft , fixed by reconstruction plate and screws. All patients were followed form 5 to 10 years.
Results: All patients were free of lesions during the follow up period, up to ten years. Two patients had mild infection. One patient had severe post-operative infection with partial loss of bone graft, after control of infection augmentation bone graft was performed. Two patients showed fracture of the mini- reconstruction plates after six months. The esthetic outcome was satisfactory in all.
Conclusions: Aggressive jaw cysts and cyst-like lesions should be managed in an aggressive surgical procedure to prevent recurrences and multiple surgical interventions.

Bisphosphonates And Osteonecrosis Of Mandibular And Maxillary Bones
Bisphosphonates are drugs used to slow down or prevent bone damage. They also lower calcium levels. They are called bone hardening or bone strengthening treatment. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons recognized and reported cases of non-healing exposed bone in the maxillofacial region in patients treated with IV Bisphosphonates; Pamidronate (Aredia) and Zoledronic acid (Zometa). The major goals of treatment for patients at risk of developing, or who have BRONJ are: Prioritization and support of continued oncologic treatment in patients receiving IV Bisphosphonates. Oncology patients can benefit greatly from the therapeutic effect of Bisphosphonates by controlling bone pain and reducing the incidence of other skeletal complications. The treatment objectives for patients with an established diagnosis of BRONJ are to eliminate pain, control infection of the soft and hard tissue, and minimize the progression or occurrence of bone necrosis.

Hard Tissue Reconstruction for Dental Implant Rehabilitation. An Update
An ideal implant site with complete preservation of bone and the overlying soft tissue is infrequently seen, thus it must be enhanced with a variety of surgical techniques. Implant protocols for replacement of missing teeth with compromised ridges have evolved considerably and modern approaches are much less invasive but a predictably beautiful result is a challenge.
Aims of Hard Tissue Reconstruction for Implant Site Development are to reestablish bone volume for implant placement, restore inter-maxillary ridge relationship, ensure good esthetic results, fulfill biomechanical requirement of prosthesis and obtain healthy bone ensuring osseointegration.
Choice of augmentation technique depends on Size of defect and area to be augmented, Horizontal or vertical and Anatomical structures. 3D bone augmentation in atrophied alveolar ridge Techniques are Bone expansion and compaction, Ridge split, Guided bone regeneration,,Onlay bone grafting and Sinus augmentation in addition to orthognathic surgery and distraction osteogenesis techniques will be highlighted.
Grafting of bone &/or soft tissue is sometimes essential to achieve adequate aesthetic and functional results.
3D evaluation of alveolar bone defects before adopting the technique for bone grafting is imperative for predictable outcomes. The choice of technique determined by the three dimensional pattern of bone loss.

Office Surgical Dentistry And Minor Oral Surgery: A Guided Experience For Dental General Practitioners
Oral surgery does not require technical skills alone: Surgery is a very complex discipline that includes many factors of success, among them; surgical judgment, diagnosis of the surgical problem, preparation of patients (both psychologically and physiologically), timing of the operation, adjustment and modification of standard surgical procedures to fit the individual needs of each patient, and finally, the supportive postoperative care that is essential for an uneventful post-operative recovery from oral surgical procedures. Oral surgical procedures performed in dental offices by general practitioners are usually much less extensive than that practiced by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Many general dentists desire to perform advanced dental and oral surgical procedures, but without sufficient skills and adequate clinical training and experience, outcome will often be unforeseeable and unpredictable. Indeed, surgeons with little respect for oral soft and hard tissues are most likely to experience longer recuperation and higher incidence of surgical complications.
The purpose of our lecture is to address a comprehensive clinical description of main dental and oral basic surgical procedures that should be performed by general practitioners. During our talk, we will expose fundamental principles of surgery, case selection, surgical diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical difficulty, risk assessment, surgical techniques, and patient home-care instructions, all these being illustrated through many surgical clinical cases.

He manages many of these oral surgery conditions under procedural sedation.
Dental Phobia: A clinical approach with reference to conscious sedation
Anxiety is a term that is often used to describe vague feelings of apprehension to unknown danger. However, phobia is an unreasonable fear that leads to avoidance of a specific situation or object. Dental phobia is prevalent among adults in the UK and causes a lot of distress that impacts on both quality of life and the quality of dental treatment received. In the UK, the General Dental Council (GDC) recognises procedural sedation as an essential method of pain and anxiety management of dental patients, especially those attending for Oral Surgery. Any dentist who is appropriately trained can administer a sedative and provide treatment safely, providing the or she is supported by an appropriately trained assistant. This presentation focuses on: the methodology of providing conscious sedation, types of sedatives that can be safely used and administered by dental sedationists, and the possible risks associated with procedural sedation.

Setting up a sedation clinic. Providing a service through an ideal team and environment.
Dental sedation is a very useful adjunct to routine dental treatment. Phobia is not the only indication for sedation and there are a number of other instances when a sedative may be useful. Sedation however requires a specifically designed environment for the safe delivery of the treatment. The presentation will deliver an overview of how sedation can contribute to dental treatment and details of how a clinic should be equipped to provide such a service.

Proximal Tibia Versus Iliac Crest Bone Grafts In Alveolar Cleft Reconstruction
Bone grafting of the alveolar cleft is an essential step in the reconstruction of the Orofacial cleft deformity. The gold standard in all bone grafting today remains the autogenous bone despite the efforts concerned to gain comparable outcomes with allogenic bone, xenogenic bone, bone substitute and alloplasts. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of secondary bone grafting of alveolar clefts using corticocancellous autografts from the proximal tibia in comparison to that obtained from the iliac crest. Ten patients with unilateral alveolar clefts were included in this study. Reconstruction was performed using tibial bone graft in five patients and the other five patients were treated using iliac crest bone graft. The marginal bone level achieved was satisfactory in all cases evaluated by occlusal radiographs, the radiographs also demonstrated that the bone grafts were totally integrated after six months in all cases. It was found that the proximal tibia offers a reliable site for harvesting sufficient quantity of good quality cancellous bone with the advantages of less morbidity, reduced hospitalization time, reduced operating time and that it gave a post-surgical scar that was smaller and less apparent than that of the surgical intervention to harvest corticocancellous bone from the iliac crest. In conclusion, it was clear that in comparison to iliac crest harvesting, tibial bone harvesting was easier and quicker, caused less blood loss and less donor site morbidity. Furthermore, tibial bone harvesting revealed less gait disturbance and analgesic intake post-operatively compared to iliac crest harvesting.

Temporomandibular Joint dislocation
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dislocation is defined as an excessive forward movement of condyle beyond the articular eminence, and complete loss of articular relationships. The condition may be unilateral or bilateral and can be acute or chronic. The pathogenesis of chronic dislocation is diverse. Manual reduction may be difficult to reduce after certain period because of fibrosis. Management of TMJ dislocation remains a challenge.

Comparison Between General Dentists And Oral Surgeons Awareness In Managing Patients On Warfarin: A Survey
In everyday practice, general dental practitioner (GDP), especially oral surgeons (OS) are placed in situations where they have to treat patients on anti-platelet agents and warfarin. The present study assesses the approach of GDPs and OS approach to the management of patients taking warfarin and are undergoing invasive dental procedures. A structured questionnaire was designed to survey GDP, OS and dentists from other specialties (DS) in the Middle East. The preliminary results show that the knowledge of the recent guidelines was low among GDP and very few checked the INR value prior to starting the surgery. On a more positive note, the preliminary results also show a pattern of seeking advice of a cardiologist before undertaking complicated and surgical dental extractions especially if the INR was high.

Infected Facial Tissue Fillers: An Emerging Problem. Case Series
Soft tissue fillers provide an attractive option in facial rejuvenation. Trained dentists are allowed now to apply those fillers. With their increasing use the prevalence of complications is also expected to increase. While these products are primarily meant for treatment of aging face, the age structure of our patients suggests their frequent misuse and spurious indications. Especially worrisome is recently observed application of fillers in cosmetic saloons. We believe that the use of STFs should be regulated and their administration in non-medical facilities should be prohibited. Patients with atypical course of facial inflammations should be questioned about previous history of cosmetic procedures.

Evidence-Based Orthodontic Treatment Strategy In The Future Society With Low Birthrate And Longevity
Progress and development of medical and dental care are constantly advancing, and the results enliven the mass media almost every day. Also, there is something to be amazed in the accumulation of recent basic and clinical data concerning the orthodontic treatment. The favor is beneficial for expanding the age group that becomes a therapeutic target from kids to the seniors. It seems to be important that the seniors can spend indefinitely high life of QOL on a social system, and the health promotion of kids that become supporters in the future may be more important in the social infrastructure construction. In view of these backgrounds and the social conditions that many countries are facing now, I want to shed a spotlight with a prospect for the future on the significance of the early treatment from functional perspectives and the autotransplantation of the tooth with complete root formation.

Diode Laser, a new member in the Orthodontic family
Over the last several years, laser technology has helped dental professionals improve the level of care provided to their patients. For orthodontic procedures, lasers are now being used to reshape gingival soft tissues for esthetic finishing and solve issues involving altered tooth eruption. This advanced laser technology is significantly and efficiently improving the design, health and overall appearance of orthodontic patients' smiles, while also enhancing their chairside experience.
Soft tissue lasers have numerous applications in orthodontics, including gingivectomy, frenectomy, exposing impacted teeth and even crown lengthening. Low level laser therapy is useful for acceleration of orthodontic tooth movement to shorten treatment time which is a challenging task in orthodontics.
As clinicians are becoming more knowledgable about the benefits of laser in therapy, they are growing more comfortable with applying lasers to several different procedures. Lasers are not only making practice more effective and efficient, but they are also providing a more comfortable patient experience

The Fully Mechanical Shaping Of The Root Canal System: Simplification Of The Operating Sequence Respecting The Original Root Canal Anatomy And Maintaining A High Quality Of Shaping
Shaping, cleaning and filling of the root canal system are essential phases of orthograde root canal treatment. Their correct execution allows the clinician to hit the goals of endodontic treatment and achieve the success of the therapy. In nonsurgical endodontics the difficulties encountered by the practitioner are almost exclusively of anatomical type, so the clinician who wants to treat teeth predictably has to know all the possible anatomical variations and try to identify them in the diagnostic phase of the treatment thanks to clinical anatomy knowledge and with the correct radiographic interpretation. During the shaping, the original anatomy respect allows the operator to prepare the endodontic space saving radicular dentine, with an ideal shape for receiving the three-dimensional obturation with warm gutta-percha. The execution of shapes that fit and meet the original anatomy decreases the risk of creating alterations in the morphology of the root canal itself, such as steps or transport, regarded by the international scientific literature as factors predisposing to failure of the therapy.
This lecture has three main goals: the first one is to highlight how nowadays in nonsurgical endodontics a totally mechanical shaping can be performed by the clinician, while maintaining a high quality of therapy. The second goal is to underline how endodontic anatomy and shaping are closely related to each other, and also how rotary NiTi files can create alterations that may result in a failure of the endodontic therapy. The third and last goal is to emphasize how it is possible to carry out high quality and original anatomy respectful shaping, using a reduced number of instruments.

An Update On Endodontic Glidepath: “The Road To Ni Ti Rotary Safety And Efficiency”
The initial preflaring and glide-path are normally carried out using steel hand files. Unfortunately these files present several drawbacks. Few years ago the concept of mechanical glide-path and preflaring has been introduced, a multi file rotary NiTi systems dedicated only for glide path. Recently the next generation of these systems has been introduced. The current concept is to have a single file for Glide path (One patient, One use) preparation. This presentation will discuss the limits of the new files for mechanical glide-path and learn how to use them in a more safe and productive way.

Regenerative Endodontics: Following The Road Less Traveled
Regenerative endodontics is a fast growing field that has begun to reap its fruits in the past few years. It is a field that is based on the concept and foundations of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. These fields have also rapidly evolved over the past 25 years to develop into a generation of science that strives to trigger endogenous repair mechanisms. These aim to tease the body into healing itself by modulating the inflammatory response, enhancing stem/progenitor cell recruitment, promoting angiogenesis and finally tissue repair/regeneration. Although regenerative endodontic procedures (REPs) are now considered part of many daily clinical practice regimens there are still several challenges that need to be addressed to reach full clinical translation of this new science and its applications. Challenges include but are not limited to; developing appropriate antibacterial regimens that are effective yet having minimal toxicity to targeted stem cell populations, new quantitative methods of assessment following REPs, as well as establishing criteria of successful treatment outcome that are no longer compared to the goals of conventional endodontic treatment but that can encompass the biological goals associated with REPs. Biomimetic approaches have also gained much attention in an effort to mimic the natural wound healing microenvironment. Such strategies rely heavily on the integration of numerous growth factors and cytokines, many of which can be naturally derived. Using timed delivery of multiple growth factors, molecules derived from natural extracellular matrix and cocktails of naturally derived growth factors such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) are also paving the way to further advancements in the field of regenerative endodontics. This presentation will focus on providing an overview of the current status of clinical translation of regenerative endodontics including approaches for mature teeth. It will also highlight updates regarding terminology, assessment and outcome-based determination of success as well as address many of the above-mentioned challenges. Finally, clinical evidence to support the advancement of REPs in practice will also be presented.

Root Canal Reconstruction: A Recent Technique For Avoiding Endodontic Complications
Endodontic treatment of challenging teeth is a great burden for clinicians. The ability to see the complex anatomy of the roots and canals would allow adequate preparation, disinfection and obturation of such teeth. In endodontic treatment, a physical tooth model fabricated by 3D printing guided by CT imaging has been used in various cases such as planning sites for surgical tooth replantation , the diagnosis of abnormal root morphology, the determination of locations of root resorption, and the location of complex apical canal anatomies. The use of a physical tooth model has been limited to reconstruction of the external shape of teeth in previous reports. Recently however the idea of physical tooth models reproducing the internal root canal anatomy has emerged and has been employed successfully allowing the procedure to be accomplished extra-orally first on the fabricated models. Endodontic treatment on the patient after that guided by the surgical microscope can ensue. Thus physical tooth models reproducing the internal root canal anatomy can render untreatable teeth to become treatable, avoid any iatrogenic errors and improve the overall success rate and prognosis.

Bring The Best Smile For Your Patients
The goal of Dentistry is to recover the oral function and aesthetics. Ultimately it is the most important aspect to obtain the oral health and the systemic health in human life. Currently there is a significant demand of aesthetic aspects among women in all over the world. Periodontal disease is an inflammatory disease that leads to the loss of attachment around the teeth /implants. As a result the amount of exposure of the healthy gingival tissue might be affected by the consequences of the periodontal diseases. Acquiring the preferred smile as well as the healthy periodontal tissue associated to the optimal gingival exposure is also one of the goals of Periodontal and Orthodontic treatment. It is well recognized that the beautiful smile plays an important role in the social communication in our life. There are several reports of characteristics of ideal shape of lips in smiling in the Prosthodontics literatures however as far as the author’s knowledge is concerned there is no report of preference in the relation between the shape of lips and exposure of the teeth and gingiva in smiling. Furthermore, in fact that some women have a tendency to cover their mouth when they smile which might be related to some degree of self-confidence of their oral health. In the comparison of different countries and different background it will be beneficial to study the value of beautiful smile patterns in terms of exposure of the teeth /gingiva associated to the shape of lips for the designing the optimal Periodontal and Orthodontic treatment.

Forensic Dentistry: Assessment of the diversity and individuality of human dentition Comparing ante-mortem and post-mortem dental characteristics has been a reliable, accurate and quick human identification method. This is based on the assumption that each individual's set of teeth is unique. Investigation was done on the uniqueness of basic dental features in a cohort of multinational patients. Two thousand dental charts were retrieved and dental patterns were coded and entered into a computer program that was written specifically for analyzing the results of this research. Introducing a single dental modification in sound teeth dropped the percentage of similarity between dental charts from to 24.1% to only 1.05%. This percentage is narrowed down to 0.7% when the gender is introduced to the comparison. The results support the assumption that dental characteristics show a diversity that is useful for human identification, even when those characteristics are recorded in their simplest forms.

Is Cellular Phone A Source Of Infection? This original study was carried out to know the different micro-organisms harboring the cell phones of health care persons working in the dental centre of our hospital and to determine what are the potential pathogenic organisms transmitted via mobile phones. An interviewer-administered questionnaire was used for data collection. Two samples were collected by rotating the swabs over all the surfaces of cell phones; one without any sterilization and second sample after decontaminating the cell phone using isopropyl alcohol in the morning. The swabs were inoculated and streaked onto five per cent sheep blood agar, Mac-Conkey agar and chocolate agar. Isolated organisms were processed according to colony morphology and gram stain. Tests for identification of gram positive cocci included catalase, Oxidative/ Fermentative test, anaerobic mannitol fermentation and coagulase production. Tests for identification of gram negative bacilli included catalase, oxidase and other relevant biochemical tests (API 20E). In the samples taken without prior decontamination, 40% of the samples did not show any growth. Staphylococcus species dominated the growth in the remaining specimens. Gram positive bacilli, Pantoe species and Enterobacter Cloacae were also found. In the samples taken with prior decontamination at the beginning of the day, 36% of the samples did not show any growth. Staphylococcus species dominated the growth in the remaining specimens. Gram positive bacilli, Micrococci and Citrobacter Freundii were also found.

Bad Breath: A Multidisciplinary Approach To A Social Stigma
Bad breath is one of the main reasons people buy oral care products or seek the professional help of a dentist. Most of them, however, don’t get the results they hope for or the answers they need from their dentists. Halitosis, or bad breath, is a multifactorial condition that can have roots in so many different places and needs to be treated as such.
Dentists should be able to diagnose the underlying cause of the bad odour, develop a suitable, well functioning treatment regimen and track the development. This presentation aims to help oral healthcare professionals to do just that.

Early Childhood Caries - An Epidemic Oral Health Problem in the United Arab Emirates
Early Childhood Caries (ECC) is a specific form of tooth decay affecting the primary dentition. It can result in a considerable suffering and disfigurement and frequently compromises the future dentition. The Prevalence of ECC in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is very high. According to Al-Hosani & Rugg-Gunn (1998) the prevalence of ECC in Abu Dhabi Emirate preschool children was over 90 % (93.8% in Abu Dhabi and 90.4% in Al-Ain). The treatment of ECC is very costly and in most cases it requires full dental rehabilitation under general anaesthesia by a paediatric dentist. However, the disease is preventable (i.e. primary prevention) and also in its early stages (secondary prevention). The aims and objectives of this presentation are: to investigate the contributing factors for the high ECC prevalence in the UAE (presenting the results of Ras Al-Khaimah ECC study), its clinical picture and to discuss and suggest an evidence-based ECC prevention strategies.

Conservative Prosthetic Enhancement
Treatment modalities that are currently utilized to cover pitted, chipped or defective enamel will be presented, and the advantages and limitations of each option will be explained. The use of Lumineers is considered a very effective non-traumatic and conservative solution for correcting minor tooth deformities. This treatment option can be done without removing any sensitive tooth structure compared to other options, such as crowns and conventional veneers. The enhanced bond strength and decreased sensitivity utilizing this technique lead to more patient case acceptance.

To Save Or To Extract Primary Anterior Teeth? Challenges And Controversies In ECC
Early childhood caries (ECC) is a common dental problem in preschool children in Egypt. ECC is characterized by rapidly progressive decay of the upper primary incisors and molars. These teeth may become necrotic and shortly cause alveolar abscesses. Management of ECC based mostly on techniques adopted from current literature and the clinical experiences of experts. Most of the general dental practitioners extract the involved primary anterior teeth with severe destruction of crowns and/or apical pathosis. However, many parents nowadays are demanding for esthetic alternatives for their children. Restoring badly decayed primary anterior teeth to its previous function and esthetics presents a challenge to the pedodontists. The infected pulp can be treated with various materials, Metapex shows promising results in arresting or improving the pathological condition. In some cases of severe crown destruction, the use of fiber posts is suggested. Zirconium crowns were emerged as an esthetic alternative, in the last few years it perceived interests among pedodontists all over the world. To save or to extract those teeth is a debatable issue. Research on this topic is surprisingly minimal and clinical experiences remain the main source of learning. The clinical procedures, challenges and tips for using zirconium crowns, metapex, fiber posts, and others for saving those questionable teeth will be presented in this lecture. Results of clinical cases showing successes and failures will be presented. Criteria for selecting cases in which to save or to extract will be discussed in an interactive way with the audience.

How to Become a Unique Dentist
Fresh graduates usually find it very difficult to find the way to properly decide which way to go afterwards, but most important is that they need to know what their identity is. An undergraduate dentist can end up his/her journey believing that he have become a skillful technician or diagnostician, while in many instances this skill although improves by time, yet only few clinicians become distinct. The reasons behind that are plenty but need to be clearly addressed.
This presentation is directed towards newly graduates, and last year dental students to pave the way for a clear future. It shows the lifetime experience of the author with lots of clinical tips. The course will discuss how great it is to be a DENTIST. Lots of newly graduates wonder when is the right time and place to start. Furthermore, the course helps discovering the answer to a very hard question: What type of dentist do i want to be?

Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Reflex (NTI) --Tension Suppression System (TSS)
Tension headache patients without symptoms of Temporal-mandibular disorders (TMD) contract their temporalis muscles during sleep 14 times more intense than upon awakening. Once the jaw is clenched, the supportive musculature of the skull assumes a static contraction causing chronic stiff and sore neck. Night guards could relax the lateral pterygoid musculature by providing less resistance to side-to-side movement. When the lateral pterygoids are chronically contracted (dysfunctional habit) they can cause sinus symptoms and /or TMD. If the patient’s parafunctional habits includes both horizontal activity (lateral pterygoid) and vertical activity (temporalis) the result is “excursive clenching or bruxing” which allows significant TMJ strain. But if the parafunctional habit is purely vertical (temporalis) the result is “primary clenching” which causes severe morning headaches. During this unprotected nocturnal parafunction, massive amounts of noxious input called nociception bombard the trigeminal sensory nucleus. By keeping the molars and canines from touching, the method of generating “Nociception to the Trigeminal” is inhibited. In conclusion an inter-occlusal device which provides anterior incisor contact only will reduce the contraction intensity of the temporalis significantly. This occurs only in a static position, so modifications of the device to avoid lower canine contacts during excursive movements are done as:
- Constructing an Anterior Midline Point Stop (AMPS) will avoid canine contact to the device during lateral movements hence Headaches and TMD are prevented.
- Further modification to maintain perpendicular incisal contact in protrusive and retrusive movements allows for suppression of parafunctional contraction intensity in all mandibular movements thereby reducing and preventing Headaches and TMD symptoms.
