Lecture highlights across the two lecture theatres

Joe McEnhill – Planning beyond the extraction: is there a bigger picture?

Atraumatic tooth extractions are an essential skill that all dentists should have if they are to reduce damage to surrounding hard and soft tissues. Extractions, however, are not the final act of the patient journey. 

Preserving the width and height of the jawbone prepares for easier placement of dental implants, either immediately or down the line, and is a fundamental skill every dentist could master. This lecture is designed to give a better understanding of atraumatic tooth extractions along with the short- and long-term factors to consider. 

Nishma Sharma – Finding the elusive ICP (inner calm and peace)

Much like a stale, one-way relationship, you work your ball-burnishers off, feel isolated and undervalued, and threaten to leave after every broken core… Yes, dentistry is hard work and has never tested our resilience as much as it currently does. So, what happens when you fall out of love with dentistry? What happened to that dental dream we all chased at uni? Why is happiness harder to find than a sclerosed MB2? In this lecture, Nishma reflects on her personal ups and downs with portfolio dentistry, life after burnout, our toxic obsession with tooth porn and the secret to us all smiling more, including how to find more joy and humour in what we do.  

Nishma looks to dissect not only where we maybe going wrong, but more importantly, where we are going right, and why sometimes it isn’t the world around us that’s covered in spittle, but maybe just our loupes that need cleaning. 

Domonic Castro – Revolutionising oral care: exploring the benefits of Burst products

Stuart Aherne – Considerations for extractions on the approach to implant therapy

Extraction is the first step in most implant therapies and whether a dentist is going to be involved in the implant treatment or not, it is important that they understand the decision pathway that needs to be considered before any tooth is extracted. 

This presentation by Stuart will cover the decision pathway as well different techniques that can be provided at this stage to produce the paramount outcome for the finalised treatment.

Tony Aherne – Soft tissues around single tooth implants

With changing expectations for dental treatment, aesthetics has become a fundamental component in defining successful rehabilitation with dental implants. 

The durability of the gingival contours, as well as the colour of the adjoining tissues, are critical for the long-term maintenance of successful treatment outcomes. In this lecture, Tony will discuss all of the influencing factors, including the stability of the interface, implant materials, bone and soft tissue augmentation, as well as patient biology.
