Lecture topic: “Integration of Smile Design and Occlusion Using a Three Step Analysis
The clinician today is faced with a myriad of challenges as the uncertainty of our world moves at a dizzying pace. The notion of being a professional and being insulated to fluctuation in our politics and economy is a thing of the past. To be successful today, we need to be able to hear and understand our patient needs and develop the skills for successful outcomes and thus build a loyal following. The day will discuss creative thinking around aesthetic diagnosis, occlusion and bonded ceramics. A three-step analysis will be presented, which takes a structured approach to build successful outcomes for esthetic predictability for our patients. In the morning session, we will cover the following concepts.

  • A methodical approach to an aesthetics-driven diagnosis: Identify the problem, visualize the solution, and choose the appropriate technique.
  • Fundamentals of aesthetics and understanding the important macro and micro aesthetic elements of the smile. 
  • Using the macro and micro aesthetic elements to create a language of aesthetics that allows the technician and aesthetic dentist to communicate effectively.
  • The integration of occlusal concepts and aesthetics will be presented
  • Identify the problems through a three-step analysis of the aesthetics and function with an aesthetic evaluation form checklist and mounted study casts. 
  • Visualize the solution through a diagnostic wax-up of the mounted study casts.  
  • Aesthetic mock-up: A direct mock-up in the mouth transferring the diagnostic wax-up via a silicone stent. In cases that are reductive and not additive, two-dimensional computer imaging or other visualization techniques can also be employed.
  • Once the solution is visualized, choose the appropriate technique, which means the most conservative option. This defines a patient-centered, vs. technique-driven approach. 
  • The techniques available today for bonded ceramics and conservative dentistry
  • The current state of the art thinking around the chemistry of whitening and how it impacts our clinical thinking
  • Executive development concepts for the clinician

From 1996 to 1998 he worked as Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Houston, USA, Department of Periodontics, and did research on dental implants and regenerative materials. From 1999 to 2004 he was Associate Professor at the University of Würzburg, Germany, Department of Prosthodontics. Currently he is a Visiting Scholar at the University of Kiel, Germany, Department of Prosthodontics, where he finished his Ph.D. thesis in 2011. Apart from conventional fixed prosthodontics and esthetic rehabilitations, his main focus lies on surgical and prosthetic aspects of prosthetically driven implantology and soft tissue management upon which he has lectured and published nationally and internationally. Dr. Weng is a member of several scientific societies and serves on the editorial board of the Quintessence journal „Implantologie“. Since 2004 he has practiced in a private office in Starnberg, Germany, with a special focus on implant dentistry and periodontics. He has become Vice President of the German Society of Dentistry and Oral Medicine (DGZMK) in 2013.


Lecture Topic: Handling of extraction sockets with and without immediate implant placement - predictability in soft and hard tissue maintenance.
For a predictable functional and esthetic result in implant dentistry hard and soft tissue alterations after tooth extraction and after implant insertion have to be foreseen and to be compensated for. The more these changes of hard and soft tissue levels can be controlled, the less invasive procedures can be performed. Systematic over-augmentation of hard and soft tissues should be the last option in esthetically challenging cases. Simplified treatment options should be the first choice. This presentation will focus on the prerequisites for predictability in such cases by analyzing the biologic and technical factors contributing to the final result. Based on today’s knowledge clinical scenarios for immediate implant placement as well as for socket and ridge preservation will be developed  and discussed.

Date: 18th February 2018 
Time: 02.00pm to 04.00pm

Speaker: Dr. Robert Scheoring

Dr. Robert Schroering has placed over 10,000 implants during his career and has spoken in many countries across the globe. He lectures extensively on the immediate load principles of the NobelActiveTM dental implant and has taught over 4,000 dentists concerning the precise techniques of the “all on 4” procedure. His office in USA was the North American Training Center for the “all on 4” procedure.

He has been published in numerous articles and most recently in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial implants for his research concerning immediate loading of the NobelActiveTM implant in immediate extraction sockets.  He holds numerous patents concerning dental implant modifications.

He is a fellow with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantology and member of the Academy of Osseointegration. He is adjunct faculty with the University of Louisville School of Dentistry.


Lecture Topic: Graftless solutions for the compromised edentulous arches

Many patients who have an atrophic jaw refuse treatment due to the lengthy and costly procedure of grafting. These patients have the greatest needs but with the least bone to work with. Today, the Allon4 or the Zygomatic dental implant solutions have greatly decreased the need for grafting and cost of these lengthy procedures. Learning these procedures opens the door for the high percentage of patients who have atrophic jaws, but could only be treated with expensive and complicated grafting in the past.

The presentation will discuss the basic principles of Immediate loading of a full arch using only 4 dental implants without any grafting required. Zygomatic implants will be discussed. The premise of why this can be successful and the success rates of this technique will be shown. Before and After photos will be presented for the dentists to understand completely the dramatic results that can be obtained from this immediate restoration.
