Best of the PEERS Summit Watch Party

The award-winning Dentsply Sirona Watch Party Series returns in 2024, hosted by Dentsply Sirona, in partnership with Dental Update

Running for five consecutive weeks, from 28th February, this series of interactive webinars is led by renowned clinicians and technicians at the forefront of modern dentistry and features some of the highlights from one of the landmark clinical education events of 2023; the PEERS Summit.

PEERS is an independent, science and research led initiative covering Implants & Digital Lab, Endodontics, Orthodontics and CEREC® Digital Dentistry. Each PEERS network is led by a Clinical Board who for the 2023 PEERS Summit – which took place in London – curated a diverse and often unique topic programme featuring 27 sessions, and we’ve pulled together 5 of the best for our 2024 Watch Party Series. All sessions will be followed by in-depth discussions and lively Q&A debates.

The Watch Parties follow on from Dentsply Sirona’s highly successful ‘Decoding Digital Dentistry Watch Party’ series in 2022 and the ‘A Smile Is Born Watch Party’ from 2023 and still available On-Demand.

CEREC® CAD/CAM Chairside: Materials, Clinical Application & Workflow

Wednesday, February 28, 2024 19:00 - 20:00
Aims and objectives:

At the beginning of CAD/CAM chairside in the early 90s, there was only one feldspathic ceramic material available, the clinical indication was limited to inlays and partial crowns.

For the clinical CAD/CAM chairside application, meanwhile, we have a huge variety of different bloc materials available, glass ceramic, zirconium dioxide ceramic, hybrid ceramic, and composite blocs. These materials differ not only regarding strength but also regarding modulus of elasticity, resistance to degradation, resistance to abrasion, surface roughness, adhesive bonding, aesthetical appearance, polishability, and machinability by the milling unit.

All above mentioned aspects as well as different workflows and all clinical indications for tooth restorations will be discussed in the recorded presentation by Dr. Andreas Bindl. We will be joined by Dr. Simon Fieldhouse to moderate the session. 

Aims and objectives:

  • Material Mastery: Understand the diverse range of CAD/CAM chairside materials. Identify and differentiate between CAD/CAM chairside materials and understand their unique properties.
  • Clinical Proficiency: Develop skills to confidently apply these materials across various tooth restorations beyond inlays and partial crowns.
  • Workflow Optimisation: Integrate material selection seamlessly into chairside workflows for enhanced clinical efficiency.
  • Critical Analysis: Foster a critical mindset by comparing key material properties like strength, modulus of elasticity, and aesthetic appearance to drive decision-making in clinical applications.
