Soo-Wee is a specialist oral surgeon in full-time private practice in Dunedin, NZ. Having previously been a general dentist for nearly 10 years, he understands the daily struggles of carrying out oral surgery during the day, especially when the patient has been “fitted in” between other appointments! Carrying out stress free and efficient exodontia is not an easy task, and the responsibility does not always just falls on the dentist, but requires a team approach to provide the best outcome for your patients. Building confidence in oral surgery require dedication and perseverance, but the journey can be fun, fulfilling and extremely rewarding for your career.

The modern management and conservative treatment of dental traumatic injuries is a skill underpinned by the clinician's knowledge and skill at placing well-sealed, biomimetic, invisible resin restorations. The concept of responsible aesthetics is echoed in this course through a review of preparation design through to occlusal control for long-lasting performance. The course will progress from restoration of a Class IV using a stratified approach with Voco Amaris through to the placement of composite veneers with maverick effects in the afternoon. There will be an opportunity for delegates to learn how to mask a dark tooth during the course of placing a composite veneer.

The restorative requirements for older patients can vary considerably, as can individual patient expectations, and tolerances. In addition, the presenting dentitions of the older patient can vary significantly and often will include a range of previous dental interventions. There are frequently concerns over the long-term stability of the dentition and which teeth should be retained and which teeth may need extraction. As such the maintenance and ongoing restorative management of these dentitions can be quite challenging, and in many cases may not be predictable. Consequently, the clinician must be mindful of what future restorative interventions should be undertaken and what outcomes should be expected. This workshop will present a range of individualised minimally invasive restorative management protocols that take into consideration the persons abilities and tolerances, that are less invasive, less costly, and more time efficient, and can provide predictable, pragmatic and practical outcomes. Participants will be able to gain hands-on experience with a range of materials and techniques that can be used to enhance the range of direct restorative options which may be offered to patients, and will enable more time and cost effective conservative approaches. A range of clinical cases showing contemporary dental restorative materials and conservative restorative techniques will be presented to demonstrate how to enhance and optimise outcomes for older patients. Ongoing maintenance and management strategies will also be provided to ensure maximum long term benefits for all patients.

Fibre reinforced restorative materials have a range of uses in restorative dentistry, and they enhance the options available for replacing missing teeth and strengthening weakened teeth. Resin impregnated glass fibres provide an excellent option for cost effective and functional fibre reinforced adhesive bridges, and the newer short fibre reinforced composites (SFRC), due to their extremely high fracture toughness, provide an excellent option for reinforcing teeth. These SFRC are particularly effective for restoring badly broken down and endodontically treated teeth. This workshop will provide clinical information and a ‘hands-on’ experience with resin-impregnated fibre reinforcing materials and SFRC combined with a range of aesthetic and high strength composite resins. Techniques for creating aesthetic and functional anterior bridges and for provision of high strength anterior and posterior restorations will be undertaken. Materials handling and clinical hints and tips will be highlighted to assist in ensuring successful patient outcomes.
