  • REFRAME, REFILL, REFRESH & RESPECT
    SUSANA KENNEDY
  • The reality is that the recent pandemic has left in its wake the same effects of emotional and psychological trauma created by war. Indeed we have been in a “state of war” fearing for the safety of our loved ones, our own safety and for our jobs/livelihood and ability to provide and even though life is “becoming normal again” the reality is that even “normal life” can be challenging. So how do we move through challenges with less suffering and more ease, empowered with grace? It is by cultivating the tools and techniques used by the most resilient mind masters in the world. Along with these tools and techniques, we also need to make sure we are not “pouring from an empty cup” and so how do we make sure we remain full, and finally we need to hit refresh. This combination will allow you to become truly resilient no matter what you face while also keeping yourself centred and living life fully.

  • KEY PRINCIPLES FOR SUCCESSFUL IMPLANT SUPPORTED RESTORATIONS
    DR RHOODIE GARRANA
  • The success of implant restorations depends on various dimensional features of the prosthetic crown and pre-prosthetic soft tissue development. This lecture aims to highlight the key features in developing peri-implant soft tissues and the features of an ideal prosthesis.

11:45 – 12:45
  • Pericervical Dentine Preservation: Paramount or Pointless in Endodontics?

    DR Martin Vorster

  • This lecture will focus on different endodontic access cavity designs, pericervical dentine preservation and its associated advantages and disadvantages. The benefit of dentine preservation during endodontic access cavity and final canal instrumentation will be discussed, with specific focus on fracture resistance and preparation time.

    Objectives:

    • To present the advantages and disadvantages associated with different endodontic access cavity designs.
    • To discuss the effect of different endodontic access cavity preparations in combination with different instrumentation systems on pericervical dentine preservation, canal preparation time and fracture resistance.
    • Present clinical case studies to highlight key features of pericervical dentine preservation.

12:45 – 13:45

Lunch and Exhibition


13:45 – 14:45
  • MANAGEMENT OF PATIENTS ON ANTICOAGULANTS IN THE DENTAL PRACTICE

    DR JACQUES BEUKES

  • Advances in medicine has resulted in numerous patients being required to take chronic medication. These medicines are often vital for the patient’s wellbeing but may predispose them to complication in the dental setting.

    This lecture will give an overview of current trends in anticoagulative therapy and some tips to enhance patient safety.

  • HOW TO BE MORE EFFICIENT AND PROFICIENT IN YOUR ENDODONTIC TREATMENT

    DR HEINRICH DIPPENAAR

  • Find the Target….Stay on Target and execute the mission with Precition. Treating multiple root canals in a tooth can be time consuming specially if there is more than one root canal all with different lengths.How can we eliminate hand files even for emergency treatment and use new technology to our advantage to gain speed and accuracy. How do we Obturate these preped root canals predictable with single cones? Should we aim for huge puffs of sealer through the apex or do we just seal te canal off at working length?


15:45 – 16:15

Refreshments and Exhibition


16:15 – 17:15
  • IMPLANTS VS ENDODONTICS – EVERYDAY DECISION MAKING PROTOCOLS

    DR CHRISTIAAN VICTOR

  • Very often both clinician and patient are confronted, during treatment planning, with a choice between an implant or root canal treatment.

    What are the factors that we should consider? Are there really any true contra indications for non-surgical root canal therapy? How does you decision influence the overall treatment plan? Does a simple comparison of long-term survival or success rates of root filled teeth and implants fulfil the demand?  These issues (among many others) will be addressed during this lecture, in a humble attempt to make some sense of it all, backed up with relevant literature and case studies.

  • TOOTH REPLACEMENT IN THE AESTHETIC ZONE, AVOIDING PITFALLS TO ENSURE SUCCESSFUL OUTCOMES

    DR GEOFF PATTERSON

  • Tooth replacement by means of dental implants has gained popularity over the years. Prosthetically driven implant surgery has become a standard of care to improve short and long-term treatment success. Precise implant positioning has obvious advantages, such as favourable aesthetic and prosthetic outcomes, long-term stability of peri-implant tissues and the potential to ensure optimal occlusal contacts and implant loading.

    The correct three-dimensional positioning of implants often requires extensive augmentation procedures. The timing and sequence of which, often have a dramatic impact on the final treatment outcome. In cases where the tooth is still present, options such as partial extraction therapy (PET) may have potential advantages, such as reduced number of surgeries. This presentation will focus on the various treatment options and timing of interventions in the replacement of teeth in the aesthetic zone, with a particular focus on avoiding pitfalls.
