Amira Galal is a Graduate (2001) and Postgraduate (Msc-2009, phD-2015) of Cairo University, School of Oral and Dental Medicine. She is currently a Researcher of Endodontics at the National Research Centre and a Lecturer of Endodontics at Misr International University. She is also an FDI speaker and has lectured extensively nationally and internationally. Moreover, she has published articles in local and international Journals. She operates at her own private practice “Dr Amira Galal Dental Care” in New Cairo, Egypt.
Major advances have been made in the field of bioceramics used for endodontic treatment. Bioceramics are biocompatible in nature and have excellent physico-chellmical properties. Since their discovery, the material development has further evolved significantly developing formulations of high antibacterial properties and enhanced sealing abilities by overcoming certain limitations of earlier endodontic materials. Bioceramics can function as root repair materials, root canal sealers and filling materials, retrograde filling materials, revascularization materials and capping materials in vital pulp therapy. Bioactive materials are emerging in the marketplace and hold promise to ignite a new era of regenerative endodontics by creating new hope. This lecture gives an overview of bioceramics in endodontics, with a detailed insight into individual materials currently used, along with their properties and clinical applications.The Objectives of this study is to review the medical and dental employment of bioceramics, its components and properties; evaluate the traditional endodontic materials; recognize the evolution of bioceramic materials; Interpret the application of bioceramic materials in different treatment methodologies; develop newer av0enues for further research to broaden the application scope of bioceramics in different dental fields.

Eugene L Antenucci is an expert in the clinical integration and utilization of advanced dental technologies has helped numerous dentists understand how to utilize and fully integrate advanced technologies into daily clinical dental practice. He maintains a full-time restorative, implant and cosmetic private practice in Bay Shore N.Y., USA. He has served numerous Academic Appointments most recently as a Clinical Assistant Professor at NYU College of Dentistry Teaching Implant Surgical and Prosthetic Dentistry. He is a Diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. He has served in numerous leadership roles with the Academy of General Dentistry. His years of experience with CadCam and Cone Beam Imaging, along with his implant teaching experience and years of training dentists in seminars and workshops have assisted other dentists in achieving the highest levels of practical understanding regarding advanced technologies with concrete and usable information on the application of technologies such as digital impressioning and CAD-CAM and 3D cone-beam imaging.
Dramatic advancements in technology and the applications of technologies are occurring at such a rapid pace that it is difficult for dental practitioners to manage the changes comprehensively and incorporate the technologies. There are two core technologies today which are driving all aspects of prosthetic restorative and implant dentistry. These technologies are 3D Cone Beam Imaging and CadCam digital impressioning technologies. Select cases will be presented to illustrate how two core dental technologies have become an integral part of dental practice and provide practical guidance to practitioners in their use in prosthetic restorative and implant dentistry from a clinically based perspective. Integral to the technologies are a sound understanding of ceramic materials such as eMax Lithium Disilicate and the use of digital impressioning and in-office fabrication techniques in creating restorations. 3D Cone Beam Imaging and digital scanning impressioning technologies are integrated clinically in the field of implant dentistry to digitally guide implant placement and to plan, produce and deliver implant restorations economically with greater levels of precision and patient comfort. The goal of utilizing and implementing digital impressioning and 3D imaging technologies is by improving patient care as well as the efficiency at bottom line of the practice.

The traditional standard for edentulous patients was the construction of complete maxillary and mandibular dentures. The use of dental implants to support and retain removable or fixed prostheses can eliminate many reported problems of conventional complete denture. The presence of several limitations in placing multiple implants to retain and support fixed prostheses has always been present. Sever resorption of alveolar ridges, maxillary sinus enlargement and unfavorable jaw relations can limit the placement of sufficient number of dental implants. The unwillingness of the patient to do surgical procedures to modify the bone and financial restrictions sometimes prevent the placement of a sufficient number of dental implants to support a fixed prosthesis and therefore require a different approach for those edentulous patients. Implant supported overdenture can be the best treatment choice of those compromised patients with the following advantages; excellent retention, additional support and stability, improved mastication and function, minimal number of implants and easier surgical procedure. Converting the existing denture into the new prosthesis can be an added value. However, several questions arise like how many dental implants should be used in the upper and lower arch for supporting and retaining an overdenture? Whether those dental implants be splinted or not? What is the ideal attachment to be used? What are the most common early and late complications present in such approach and how to maintain the overdenture? The presentation will answer those questions and gives ten golden tips to be remembered and considered in making an implant overdenture.
