The concepts in restorative dentistry are changing and adhesive dentistry has steadily gained in importance. Today modern operative dentistry focus is on minimal removal of tooth tissue and on application of adhesive restorative materials that possibly perform therapeutic action on demineralized dentin. During the last decades, an increasing variability of restorative materials has conquered the dental market.

Management of Risks & Complications in Implantology

Every patient has high expectations of dental implants in terms of appearance, function and longevity. It is essential that these expectations are realistically managed and that treatment of the highest standard is provided. This involves very careful evaluation. Proper case selection is the most important aspect of implant risk management. Provision of a successful implant restoration requires many skills including a surgical reconstructive procedures to place the implant in the best possible position and prosthodontic techniques to provide an aesthetic restoration in occlusal harmony with the rest of the dentition. Recognition of risk factors and long-term maintenance requirements are equally important.

Clinicians involved in these treatments must obtain adequate training and develop skills through treatment of straightforward cases using well established protocols before embarking on more demanding cases.

In this study, management of risk factors and possible complications in implantology will be presented.


Surgical Treatment In Temporomandibular Joint Internal Derangement

Internal derangement of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is defined as an abnormal anatomic relationship between the articular disc and the articulating surfaces. Clinically,TMJ  internal derangement is characterized by jaw pain, clicking of the joint, irregular and limited jaw motion, or restriction of joint function during mandibular movement. For treatment of this pathology, non-invasive, minimally invasive and invasive techniques have been proposed.

In this lecture, surgical treatments in TMJ internal derangement and in advanced pathologies  will be presented.
