White Spot Lesions (Part I): A New Topographic Classification (WSTC) Dr. Fadwa Chtioui DDS and Postgraduate Student Department of restorative Dentistry and Endodontics University Hospital of Sahloul Sousse, Tunisia

Abstract Enamel demineralization is frequently encountered in dental practice. Histologically, hypomineralization is the common feature and several etiologies stand behind their clinical appearance.

Recently, resin infiltration technique was introduced to mask these enamel lesions. Over time, the indication evolved and was extended to all etiologies responsible for enamel white lesions. However, from a topographic point of view, the location of hypomineralized lesion differs based on the corresponding etiology and the appropriate choice of a specific treatment for each location is necessary. To date, the etiology of the lesion is solely considered when identifying their topographic location within the enamel. Conversely, the correlation between etiology and topography remains theoretical and is, however, regarded to be quite weak especially in cases where only a partial improvement of the esthetic appearance was seen. Therefore, the results remain unpredictable in most cases of such lesions regardless of their plausible etiologies. As this idea kept grabbing our attention during our study, it was compelling to figure out the missing link between etiology and the topography of hypomineralized enamel areas. Likewise, a clinical evaluation of the enamel white lesion’s depth must be adopted as, technically, the latter seems to exclusively influence the treatment outcome. This work proposes a new topographic classification along with a new set or classification criteria of enamel white lesions for a more proper management of hypomineralized teeth

comprising a major breakthrough in their treatment. The means of Visual examination and transillumination have served as references to develop this new topographic classification.

Introduction Hypomineralization is the presence of that visible white area on the tooth surface is due solely to a defect in the enamel. These opacities are developmental defects of enamel (DDE) resulting from enamel organ dysfunction due to a variety of agents and defined as a qualitative defect resulting histologically in hypomineralization [Mastroberardino et al., 2012; Pini et al., 2015; Senestraro et al., 2013]. Recently, resin infiltration technique has been introduced to optically mask these enamel hypomineralized lesions and improve their mechanical properties [Kielbassa et al., 2010; Paris et al., 2013]. In order to successfully infiltrate these lesions, having the necessary knowledge of their topographic location seems crucial. Right up to the present day, this topographic knowledge has been based on the etiology of these lesions despite the fact that new studies have emerged to provide data on the little-known subsections of white-spot lesions [Denis et al., 2013]. And while there is a good correlation between such lesions, their etiologies seem to present an unpredictable location of hypomineralized enamel surfaces. And it should be mentioned that several studies have shown only partial improvement of esthetic appearance of enamel white lesions while the

14 Oral Pathology results remain unpredictable in most cases of such lesions regardless of their plausible etiologies [Attal et al., 2014; Tirlet et al., 2013]. Indeed, in order to obtain successful infiltration of the lesion’s body, the surface layer has to be removed by the application of an etching procedure repeatedly [Meyer-Lueckel and Paris, 2008b, a]. Thus, when hypomineralized lesions are confined at the inner part of enamel, the classic protocol of infiltration technique seems to be inappropriate [Attal et al., 2014]. Therefore, the missing link between etiology and topographic position of the hypomineralized enamel surfaces has impelled our main attention to set forth a new approach in locating enamel white lesions. Consequently, a clinical evaluation of their deepness and thickness must be considered with a view to identifying a specific treatment for each topographic location. The aim of this work is to propose a new topographic classification of enamel white lesions, seeking to introduce a new paradigm concerning their treatment regardless of their causes, a codified procedure and a more conservative treatment for a better aesthetic result. A second article will be devoted more specifically to the treatment of these spots with regard to this new classification.

Visual examination To date, there are no clinical methods describing the topography of enamel white lesions. However, visual examination can be useful to determine their topographic location. The perception of white lesions on enamel surfaces is a complex phenomenon, yet, based on the available data, a meticulous visual examination can allow us to read a “topographic mapping” of the lesion. Optically and contrary to sound enamel, hypomineralized enamel is a relatively heterogeneous tissue made up of organic and mineral materials, with different refractive indices. In situ, the multiplicity of these indices lead to a diffuse reflection of light, and therefore the lesion appears white [Denis et al., 2013]. On the other hand, from a clinical point of view, Dental News, Volume XXIV, Number IV, 2017

Torlakovic showed a good correlation between white intensity and the volume of hypomineralized white lesions [Torlakovic et al., 2012]. In fact, the depth of enamel hypomineralization can significantly explain the range of shades of white lesions clinically observed. So genuinely, some white lesions are only slightly whiter than sound enamel, and air drying is required to detect them, whereas others are intensely white, easily seen even on a wet tooth surface [Torlakovic et al., 2012]. Moreover, enamel white lesions, may present a white-yellowish or creamy appearance [Contaldo et al., 2014]. The latter is due to the lesion depth as well as tothe optical properties of sound enamel. In fact, in regard to the small size of hydroxiapatite crystals (0.15 à 0.05 μm), the enamel, most likely scatters short wavelengths leading to an increased backscatter of blue light from its surface which in return reflects a bluish appearance. During significant light emission however, it filters and shifts blue to red and shorter orange wavelengths [Lasserre, 2007]. Indeed, Zijp reported that sound enamel, observed in daylight, appears to be pale yellow under transmitted light [Zijp et al., 1995]. Therefore, when the hypomineralization is confined at the inner third of the enamel, the reflected light coming out of this lesion is rather yellowish, and clinically, the lesion shows a creamy discoloration.

Using transillumination From an optical point view, sound enamel is translucent. It permits not only the passage of light, but also disperses it. However, enamel hypomineralized lesions are opaque and prevent the passage of light [Powers and Sakaguchi, 2006]. Based on this criterion, fiber optic transillumination (FOTI) has been used in vivo in caries detection for many years. It offers an alternative method of diagnosis of decayed tissue to supplement the clinical examination. It is a simple, non-invasive, painless method and can be used repeatedly with no risk to the patient. FOTI works due to differences in light transmission between normal and carious lesions. Indeed, the disruption of crystal structure, which occurs in hypomineralization has the ability to absorb light

16 Oral Pathology photons producing a gray shade in this kind of lesions. The procedure has been proven histologically and has levels of sensitivity and specificity that exceed those of radiography [Davies et al., 2001; Pitts and Stamm, 2004; Strassler, 2014; Zandonรก and Zero, 2006]. Based on the same optical law, the supplemental use of FOTI with other etiologies responsible for enamel hypomineralization can be helpful in order to evaluate depth and thickness of these lesions. Indeed, when hypomineralized lesion is covered by enamel, the transmitted light dispersed from this translucent layer reveals poorly-defined and fuzzy enamel opacity underneath sound enamel [Chawla et al., 2008]. Presumably, we may assume that just like underwater optical imaging where illumination techniques illustrate the depths being portrayed; this new technique may provide an idea about the 3-D depth information for optically shallow areas. Accordingly, the subsurface lesion appears well demarcated by the scattered light under transillumination as the thin layer of enamel -if it ever exists- will not distort light and rather appear transparent. The case here may be simulated to a hand moving away from a frosted piece of glass, special resolution degrades precipitously the more the hand moves away from the exit surface (Picture 1)

The use of transillumination and visual examination in the elaboration of a topographic classification of enamel white lesions. As suggested by Denis, a white lesion may present different locations. It may be deep, superficial, or both combined in one lesion. Based on the optic law that defines enamel hypomineralization and sound enamel, we have set forth the new White Spot topographic classification (WSTC) based on visual examination and transillumination.

Superficial lesions Regarding the optical properties of the enamel, the incident light transmitted towards the lesion is directly reflected to the eye and when it is superficial since reflected light is not dispersed nor distorted; thus, the lesion appears white. Nevertheless, depending on the thickness of the lesion, the appearance may differ. Thin superficial lesions are slightly whiter than sound enamel making the lesion hardly distinguishable from it and can only be detectable only after a prolonged air drying. On the other hand, when the superficial lesion is quite thick, the considerable difference in refractive indices between sound and porous enamel yields to intensely white lesions easily visible even on a wet surface.

In transillumination the lesion absorbs light, transmitting the light beam entirely when it is thin and thus yielding a slightly opaque appearance with less-pronounced edges. This process is yet reversed in cases of thick lesions which appear quite darker as they prevent the passage of light. The poor light dispersion through these superficial lesions gives appearance of a roughened white spot within well-demarcated margins [Fleming et al., 2004].

Deep lesions Due to their topography, deep lesions differ from superficial ones. In fact, a hypomineralized lesion is covered by enamel. Optically, the incident light beam passes through the translucent sound enamel, reflects at the lesion site, re-crosses through the translucent sound enamel coating, scatters then it re-emits from the surface back to the eye. Light-penetration and light-scattering through sound enamel gives forth a creamy and yellowish appearance, a criterion of deep lesions. In transillumination, a more complex optical phenomenon takes place. When the hypominerelazied lesion is covered with translucent sound enamel, the latter disperses the transilluminated light away from the enamel opacity, which, as a result, appears poorly defined and fuzzy [Jälevik and Norén, 2000]. Besides, the deeper is the hypomineralized enamel, the more important is the scattering and the fuzzier the lesion would be [Fleming et al., 2004; Kersten et al., 2006].

Mixed lesion Topographically, part of the lesion is deep and another part is superficial, which makes both characteristics present clinically and under transillumination.

Figure 1: Schematic Description of Enamel Lesions According to the WSTC: A: In Hypominerilized Lesions, the changes of refractive index, the light is thus deviated at each interface and reflected, becoming imprisoned in an “opticalmaze” that is over-luminous and therefore perceived or seen as white and opaque by the eye on account of the excess brightness which depends of the thickness of the lesion in cases of Superficial Lesions. B: In cases of deep lesions, the hypomineralized lesion is covered by enamel. The incident beam light passes through the translucent sound enamel, it is reflected at the lesion, then re-passes through the translucent sound enamel and re-emerges from the surface to the eye with a creamy to yellowish appearance.

C: Mixed Lesion show a part of the lesion is deep and another which is superficial. Then both characteristics of deep and Superficial Lesions are present on visual examination and under transillumination.

These observations can be easily concluded when a tooth shows a mixture of deep and superficial aspect or when we remove the superficial layer of enamel to transform deep lesions into superficial ones. Moreover, the degree of opaqueness reflects the degree of hypomineralization, i.e. the degree of porosity, implicating that the more opaque the enamel appears in incident light, the more porous it is since porous enamel scatters light more than does sound enamel [Villarroel et al., 2011].

22 Oral Pathology

Classification Based on all the already-cited information, in wet conditions, meticulous visual examination, the white intensity as well as limit-and-opacity features under transillumination of white lesions have served as reference to develop this topographic classification.

Three types of enamel white lesions were proposed. As a consequence, all the etiologies responsible of the enamel hypomineralisation are unified. After analyzing and studying more than a hundred forms of white lesions in our dental department, we found out that they may fall under one of the categories regrouped in table 1.

Conclusion The choice of the basic range of appropriate treatments existing today, erosion/infiltration and/or micro/mega-abrasion will then be much easier as the dentist who is now capable of estimating the 3-d image of the lesion. And based on the optical properties of sound and hypominerilzed enamel, we have managed to set forth a new topographic classification for enamel lesions which allows us to choose the best non-invasive treatment with a fairly predictable result. Dental News, Volume XXIV, Number IV, 2017

The classification comes exclusively with a purely therapeutic goal as it clinically guides us towards the appropriate treatment option for each lesion based merely on its topography.

Many ways with one material Dr Dan Krammer, Fuchstal/Germany

Recently, nineteen dental technicians from all over the world and one dentist from the Czech Republic convened at the International Center of Dental Education (ICDE) in Vienna. They were invited by Ivoclar Vivadent to take part in a very special educational session, where they were given the opportunity to compare their expertise with other seasoned dental professionals. The title of the challenge was “One aim, three solutions”; the material they would be using was IPS e.max.

At this unusual event, twenty participants were asked to treat a real patient by using three different treatment approaches. At the end of the session, the patient had to decide which type of restoration she preferred: the IPS e.max® CAD restoration made with a chairside method and completed by the dentist; a conventional CAD/ CAM-fabricated restoration; or a restoration made of IPS e.max Press. The attending dentist and representative of the chairside approach, Dr Petr Hajný looked like he was going to break out into a sweat once he fully understood the implications of this challenge. The contenders were not to be underestimated. His preliminary work and the needs of his patient would set the standard for his fellow contestants (Figs 2 to 3g). In actual fact, the task turned out to be more complex than was initially anticipated. A wide array of fabrication options was available. The participants were able to choose between IPS e.max CAD (lithium disilicate); highly translucent IPS e.max ZirCAD (zirconium oxide) either in monolithic or anatomically reduced form, ground or milled; or IPS e.max Press full-contour or anatom-ically reduced pressed and subsequently stained/veneered restorations; or a combination of all these Fig 1

versions. The choice was extremely wide because of the exceptional versatility of the all-ceramic product portfolio of Ivoclar Vivadent (Fig. 4). For those of you who find your head spinning at the thought of all these possibilities, you will be relieved to know that the solution actually turned out to be quite simple. This contest offered a number of possibilities for comparing different methods, such as the CAD/CAM and the conventional fabrication techniques, and analyzing them according to a number of critical aspects. Nevertheless, the patient would be the deciding factor in this challenge. She would be the one who would make the final decision, irrespective of whether the restoration was fabricated chairside, stained, veneered or fabricated with the conventional or CAD/CAM technique. Which group would get the job done first? The conventional or the CAD/CAM representatives? The dental technicians or the dentist? And at what esthetic price? All these issues would be addressed and the debates over many different matters resolved. Fig 2

28 Prosthodontics Could the simplest restoration perhaps be the most attractive one? How important is the number of powders and colours that are used? What is the significance of the shape and surface structure of the restoration for the overall esthetics? How important are listening skills to find out what the patient really wants?

In any case, the event offered the participants a wonderful opportunity to find out all the answers to these questions and more from the most important person in this case: that is, the patient. Now, let’s join the contestants at the ICDE in Vienna (Fig. 5) and accompany them on this exciting journey … (Figs 6 to 41).

Fig 3








Figure 3: Dr Hajný shows photos of the preoperative situation. He highlights the esthetic failings of the old restorations on the central incisors. In order to enhance the esthetic appearance of the new restoration, the patient agrees to have tooth 12 and 13 and tooth 22 and 23 included in the restorative treatment strategy. The three groups – conventional laboratory, CAD/ CAM laboratory and CAD/CAM chairside – are allocated a specific time in which to fabricate the all-ceramic restorations for teeth 13 to 23. The old crowns are removed from tooth 11 and 21. Tooth 11 is shown to have been restored with a metal root post in the past. Dr Hajný masks the post with opaquer to adjust the shade. Fig 4

Fig 5

Figure 4: The materials portfolio from Ivoclar Vivadent is immense. Therefore, the selection and combination possibilities are extensive. While this stage is easier for the conventional group, since they are using IPS e.max Press and the associated ingots, the CAD/ CAM team should also be thinking about using monolithic and individually characterized IPS e.max ZirCAD zirconium oxide restorations. Dental News, Volume XXIV, Number IV, 2017

Figure 5: Ready, steady, go: At ten o’clock sharp the participants are allowed to see the models of the case. These include a study model of the provisionally restored upper jaw and a silicone matrix, a saw-cut model of the prepared upper jaw as well as model of the lower jaw.

Figure 7: The dental technicians provide the photographer with a lot of very interesting material. The dies are prepared for the creation of the restorations and the silicone matrices have been adjusted accordingly.

Figure 8: The patient is prepared for the digital capturing of the intraoral data in the practice facilities of the ICDE in Vienna. Dr Petr Hajný, the dentist, and Vjekoslav Budimir, the dental technician, prefer to pursue a digital approach. As a result, scans are conducted with two different systems.

Figure 9: Dr Petr Hajný and his assistant scan the patient’s jaw with the CEREC Omnicam (Dentsply Sirona), an intraoral dental scanner which, like the Trios machines (3Shape), does not use powder. He takes advantage of chairside workflows to design the crowns and mill them from IPS e.max CAD MT A1.

Introduction Javier Echarri, D.D.S. Student of the Master in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics of Athenea Dental Institute, San Jotge University, Spain

Actually CA Clear Aligner through CA Digital offer a complete solution for the doctors that want to digitalize their offices. In fact from one scan (directly from the patient with an intraoral scanner or scanning the plaster models), the CA Digital software can offer: Fig 1

In this article the author will focus only in the CA Clear Aligner Therapy characteristics due to the extension of this paper.

Characteristics of the CA Clear Aligner Therapy 1- CA Clear Aligner prepare 1 to 3 steps from one digital or traditional impression As we don’t manufactures all the aligners from the first impression, we can: Fig 4

• Make the control of the treatment periodically and not only at the end of the treatment. This characteristic allow us to reduce the treatment time and avoid the final refinements of the cases. The system is a continuous control of the evolution of the case called PTMA (Plan - Treat - Monitor - Active) that means that we active the treatment according to the evolution of the case. Also we can adapt the treatment to the possible relapse due to the fault of use of the aligners, adapt to the changes in the mouth during the mixed dentition and to the stripping changes. 2- We use three different thickness of aligners One step includes 3 aligners adapted to the same set-up but with different thickness (soft, medium and hard) that activates the treatment every week. As we change the aligners every 5 to 7 seven days according to the individual evolution, we maintain a good range of dental movement. 3- CA Clear Aligners cover 2mm of the gingival tissues. In 2013, in the University of Nevada, they published that the aligners with no attachment and scallop margins has significant less retention. Less retention means less anchorage and less effectiveness in the dental movements. Covering 2mm of the gingival tissues we increase the aligners’ retention

44 Orthodontics without the use of attachments. On the other side, the Clinical Center of Munich demonstrated that the extension of the aligners get less inclination in the dental movements because the force application is near of the dental center of rotation. In this way we get a better effectiveness of the movement but as the changes in the soft tissues are not so predictable we can not prepare all the aligners from the first impression. 4- We use a lot of tools or aids in the CA Clear Aligner Therapy to reduce the treatment time and increase the efficiency of the appliances. a- CA Vector Screws for transversal expansion (anterior (CA Vector 40), posterior (CA Vector 50) or lateral-oblique (CA Vector 30)), Screws for distalization (CA Distalizer Kit), to Fig 9

close spaces (CA Tractive Screw) and for individual movements (Piston Screws). b- CA Tip Pliers. We have 4 cold pliers to activate the aligners (1- to increase the retention, 2for activation points, 3- for inclination activation, 4- for torque activation). c- CA Power Grip. We have 9 different shapes to increase the effectiveness of the treatment (1- for forced extrusion and forced ; 2 and 3 for mesio-distal angulation; 4 and 5 for torque control; 6 and 7 for posterior build-ups and 8 and 9 for anterior build-ups), d- plastic buttons as anchorage for elastics To complete de system we have another tools like stripping kits, etc. Fig 12

Whereas production times with zirconium of up to 14 hours are no exception, aesthetically appealing composite crowns can today be created within 35 minutes and only require minimal post-polishing. The CAD/CAM experts of the renowned laboratory partner DT&Shop know all about the benefits of fast, high quality production and how to keepdental laboratories competitive in the long run. In this interview, Dr. Nicolas Rohde, Head of Digital & International Division, and dental technician Manfred Bild-häuser explain what is possible in the field of CAD/ CAM with state-of-the-art materials research. Dr. Nicolas Rohde is well acquainted with the notion of speedy deliveries. The fast implementation of demanding customer orders is the daily agenda of the leading mail order company for dental laboratory equipment. Eight dental technicians produce highly aesthetic prosthetics for the company‘s numerous customers in the in-house milling centre. No wonder the enthusiasm for the novel CAD/CAM composite blocs, for example the BRILLIANT Crios submicron hybrid composite from Swiss dental specialist COLTENE, knew no bounds. The flexible all-rounders make life considerably easier for CAD/CAM production and are notable for their rapid polishability, among other things.

Question: “Dr. Rohde, it is difficult for dentists to bypass composites in classical filling therapy. Now this versatile material is also entering the arena of CAD/CAM technology. Is composite the new ceramic?”

Dental News, Volume XXIV, Number IV, 2017

Dr. Rohde: This depends entirely on the indication! Indeed, the CAD/CAM composite blocs currently available on the market bring with them a number of excellent ma-terial properties. In many cases it is possible to create visually attractive results from this flexible material in virtually no time. Long sintering or crystallising of other dental ma-terials can be eliminated completely. After oughly 35 minutes, the milling machine produces virtually finished crowns, partial crowns, inlays, onlays or veneers. Due to the high intrinsic gloss of high performance composites such as BRILLIANT Crios, brief polishing is all that is required. This allows fabrication of a top quality restoration within one hour.

Q: “How did you find out about the reinforced composite blocs?” Dr. Rohde: Based on our long-standing experience in milling, COLTENE asked us to grind a number of restorations from the material for their acrylic models. Amazingly, of the 700 units which we produced in record time, there was not a single restora-tion which did not leave the CNC machine in perfect condition. After this convincing result we immediately included BRILLIANT Crios in our portfolio and are already han-dling first enquiries for the novel material.

Q: “What can composite do which traditional CAD/CAM materials can’t?” M. Bildhäuser: Above all, the marginal stability of BRILLIANT Crios is extremely high. Compared with glass ceramics, the high performance composite is ideally suited for inlays or onlays requiring extremely thin walls. We also use the flexible material in all cases where preparation was not so good.

58 Restorative Dentistry Dr. Rohde: From my days in implant dentistry, I know that removing part of the dental fibres for dentures with implants often leads to a lack of the natural damping effect of the ligament in the jaw. This makes it extremely pleasant for patients, if the crown itself has a slight damping effect. Many users have reported on the high wear comfort of composite based restorations. The dentine-like modulus of elasticity provides for a natural chewing feeling and is gentle on the opposite tooth at the same time.

Q: “Where exactly is the specific advantage in processing, Mr Bildhäuser?” M. Bildhäuser: I was amazed at how easy the novel material could be smoothed and polished. There are no interfering inclusions of the polishing paste and post-processing takes next to no time, be it for monolithic crowns, onlays or veneers, whereby we use a compact wet grinding machine also used by many of our customers. This is not difficult to reproduce even for smaller laboratories: for example, the Finocam W is an inexpensive wet grinding machine which often delivers better results than far more expensive chairside CNC machines.

Q: “What needs to be observed in general terms when processing CAD/CAM composite blocs?” M. Bildhäuser: Of course every technician has his own style. A somewhat slower speed is generally recommended for composite. It is important to apply only little pressure on the

material. And as the processing time is short anyway, one can take a more relaxed approach. Of course, with a new material one always needs to first try out the pressure effects of the grinding tools. After one to two units, processing is possible with comparatively little effort. The final finishing and polishing is separated from the carrier with a thin disc. I then smooth the surfaces with a soft rubber polisher. For further processing I use the DIATECH ShapeGuard from COLTENE, this adapts perfectly to the respective surfaces. This is followed by meticulous post-polishing with the margin polishing paste and finished!

Q: “Which material is currently in particularly high demand in laboratories?” Dr. Rohde: Zirconium remains the gold standard in the industry, last not least because of its favourable price structure. At approximately 25 units per blank, the circular blank is certainly in a different price category than the conventional blocs for chairside grinding systems. At the same time, zirconium has a convincing flexural strength of over 1,000 megapascals. At approximately 600 megapascals the value is of course somewhat lower for highly translucent pieces. On the downside, zirconium needs to be sintered for a very long period to achieve an aesthetic solution. 14 hours for production is quite common. When using CAD/CAM composite blocs we can process orders from laboratory customers quicker as the firing process is eliminated. If we have the data by 3 p.m., our milling centre can generally deliver on the same day.

Q: “Who benefits most from rapid processing?” Dr. Rohde: If the dentist has a CAD/CAM device in the practice, a crown can be produced within an hour and be fitted during the same session. The patient saves the need for a second session and is pleased by the immediate treatment. Also in the laboratory, production only takes one hour, in other words: the patient can have his dentures a few days later which is still considerably faster than in the past.

Q: “...does this mean there are no limits to patients‘ demands?”

M. Bildhäuser: Today, patients obtain extensive information via the Internet on various indications and the treatment methods available. This increases the wish for highly aesthetic restorations and patients do take a closer look. In view of the marked quality awareness of many customers, one is of course delighted to deliver work to laboratories distinguished by a fantastic gloss.

Q: “Dr. Rohde, how has the competition from the Far East changed the domestic laboratory market in your opinion?” Dr. Rohde: As leading mail order company we export to over 100 markets and monitor the development in Europe with mixed feelings. The pressure on margins is no doubt increasing if d entists outsource their laboratory work more and more to India or China. Investment into CAD/CAM technology is therefore a good approach for the individual dental laboratory: machine fab-rication largely eliminates the intermediate labour-intensive steps, making production costs competitive again. Usually the unit labour costs are the deciding factor in the calculation. M. Bildhäuser: Add to this that the starter models for CAD/ CAM have meanwhile become affordable, together with a manageable learning curve. In the past you more or less had to be an engineer to operate the devices, these days dental technicians attend one of our training courses at the beginning, the rest follows automatically.

Q: “And finally: what properties would you want the dental material of the future to have?” Dr. Rohde: (laughs) The all-in-one solution for every purpose would be a material with the flexural strength of zirconium, the aesthetics of e.max and the processing characteristics of composite, but we place our trust in the inventiveness of the manufacturers. The amazing development of modern high performance composites over the past years would suggest that it is not only processing time in the laboratory which will undergo rapid progress. And we would be pleased to actively support easing the work burden for dental technicians.

Highly esthetic hybrid ceramics: VITA ENAMICÂŽ multiColor All material advantages unchanged!

VITA ENAMIC has been an established solution for functional restorations since 2013. The successful material attracted attention at the IDS 2017 focusing on highly esthetic solutions. The unique structural design and all the associated advantages are retained without any modification: a porous pre-sintered fine structure feldspar ceramic block (86% wt%) is infiltrated with a polymer (14 wt%). This produces a robust and user-friendly CAD/ CAM material that is quick and easy to process. Prepare and polish – done! No firing in the oven is required and individualization with composite is possible at any time. These are great features for labs and dental surgeries from an economic perspective. Integration takes place adhesively with hydrofluoric acid etching and silanation, analogous to feldspar ceramics.

Fig. 1: VITA ENAMIC multiColor: All practical and clinical advantages of VITA ENAMIC are now also available with an integrated natural color gradient in six finely nuanced layers, from neck to incisal.

restorations for front and side teeth. Esthetic rehabilitations can be conducted faster and easier in the digital workflow, making them more interesting for a larger patient group.

Clinical advantages for patients The dominating ceramic component in the dual network structure ensures stability and esthetics, while the interacting polymer network facilitates a dentin-like flexibility for absorption of chewing forces as well as stopping crack development at the ceramic interfaces. Chipping and fractures are prevented. In minimally invasive or non-invasive restorations, the material can be ground thinner than pure full-ceramic CAD/CAD materials. Patients and clinicians report high wearing comfort due to the damping action. Patients with functional problems requiring total reconstructions can in particular profit from thin material layer thicknesses and the absorption of chewing forces. The shock-absorbing effect is also advantageous for implantology purposes since no elastic fiber apparatus is involved. The ability of VITA ENAMIC to absorb forces helps to compensate the rigid ankylotic anchorage of the implant. This relieves the bone, spares the antagonist and supports long-term success.

High esthetics without individualization! Highly esthetic versions of all the familiar advantages of VITA ENAMIC have been developed: a new integrated natural color gradient in six finely nuanced layers, from neck to incisal, is now available. The result is VITA ENAMIC multiColor! Even without individualization, this material with dual network structure ensures highly esthetic monolithic single-tooth

Left to Right: Deans, Mansour Assery, Thakeb Shalan, Abdullah Shammery, Fahad Al Qahtani, Saleh Shamrany, Fahad Al Harbi We are celebrating today the achievements of two young establishments that have worked hand-in-hand and put tremendous efforts to see this day. The two young establishments are: The

“Excellence in Dentistry Education�. This conference aims to be the first cornerstone in advancing dental education through recruiting international and local experts as well as channeling

Saudi Dental Education Society, established recently, and the College of Dentistry at Princess Noura University, which has just graduated its first batch of 30 female dentists this last summer. We started with a dream; a dream to design a unique academic program that best serves the medical field by graduating distinguished professionals who could compete locally and internationally. The journey to realize our dream has gone through many phases, as mentioned in the presentation this morning. But the results, thanks to Allah, have exceeded our expectations. That took years of team-effort, hard work and exemplary dedication. The change in dental education we have aimed to impact has not been easy to implement. The question has always emerged: Why Change?! But incredible efforts were exerted to support our faculty in recognizing and accepting the rationale behind the sought change, and participating in developing and tweaking modern theories of medical education to suit dentistry education.Through that challenging process, the need to establish this society has become exceedingly apparent. We have come to realize how educators and trainers in the field of dentistry whether in college or other institutions are eager for new approaches to teach dentistry. This was further confirmed in the workshop and seminars organized by the founding committee of the society. So we are very honored today to welcome you in our First Conference of the Saudi Dental Education Society entitled

networking among interested parties in the kingdom. The Vision of society is to be the regional reference for outstanding Dental education its Mission is to support and develop academic dental education for institutes and members, ensuring the promotion and development of oral and dental health service for individuals and society. In view of our mission, we would like to take this opportunity to announce the launching of a dental education award to honor those who have greatly contributed to its advancement. Moreover, the association is in the process of launching several short and long programs which will be open for admission soon. To realize the society’s vision, this conference is held in collaboration with a young college of dentistry that has a uniquely developed curriculum, namely the college of Dentistry at PNU. Next year, we are proud to announce, our second conference will be organized through collaboration with a senior college that has excelled in dental education. The purpose is to enrich our experience by including different perspectives through different sets of practices.

Thanks to their low RDA values, toothpastes containing fine-grained diamond powder provide a better and safer means of dental cleaning than conventional toothpastes containing conventional abrasives such as ground silica, calcium phosphate and precipitated silica.

DIAMOND TOOTHPASTES – A NEW DEVELOPMENT IN DENTAL HYGIENE Dr. Hans Gaiser, Engineer Kurt Spring, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Peter Saxer Diamond is the hardest known natural material. In light of its hardness, it is used for various industrial applications (milling, cutting, polishing, etc.). In smaller grain sizes, it is also used for polishing jewelry and the precision processing of optical and electronic components. The abrasive proper-

ties of diamond approach zero as its grain sizes decreases. The capacity of a substance to have an abrasive effect on enamel is measured in REA. The same effect on dentin is measured in RDA. The RDA values of conventional toothpastes range from a mild 30 to a highly abrasive 200 (too abrasive for

daily use) depending on their indication (e.g. for removing tobacco stains or plaque from sensitive teeth). The grain size of conventional abrasives typically ranges from 1 to 100 μm, with some exceptional cases as large as 150 μm.

Figure 4: Dentin and enamel loss caused by diamond at grain sizes 1.5 μm, 2.5 μm and 4 μm compared to the loss caused by the abrasives in the biggest selling toothpastes on the market, as measured via profilometry (Attin T., University of Zurich 2014) Figure 5: Dentin and enamel loss (in micrometers) over the course of 100 years Dental News, Volume XXIV, Number IV, 2017

Given that many conventional abrasives tend to be softer than enamel, but harder than dentin, they have a cleaning and only mildly abrasive effect on enamel surfaces and an overly abrasive and destructive effect on dentin and cementum, especially on account of their larger grain size. They are ultimately responsible for the common wedge-shaped loss of tooth substance in the neck of the teeth and various sensitivity disorders. The concentration (percent by weight) of abrasives in conventional toothpastes is usually between 10% and 30%. One particular advantage of bio-inert diamond powder is that its grain size and concentration can be easily adjusted in the context of toothpaste production. Although diamond is

harder than enamel, it does not have an overly abrasive effect at a grain size of 2 to 3 μm. On the contrary, it enables thorough cleaning without destroying enamel and dentin. The diamond concentration in diamond powder toothpaste is also minimal when compared to the concentration of abrasives in conventional toothpastes. At around 20 μm for every 70 years of use, the abrasive effect of diamond powder toothpaste on enamel is negligible. Moreover, its abrasive effect on dentin is 70% to 90% less than that of conventional toothpastes whose impact can measure as high as 700 μm for every 70 years of use. The advantages of diamond powder toothpaste include the preservation of a smooth enamel

surface, reduced hypersensitivity and the prevention of dental defects, even in the face of vigorous brushing. The polishing effects also prevent tartar and plaque formation and help to brighten the teeth. Diamond powder is bio-inert, meaning that it will not react with other substances in toothpaste. The advantages have been demonstrated in clinical studies carried out at universities in the United States and Europe, and the new toothpaste has been patented around the world. Finally, given that diamond powder does not need to be added to toothpaste at concentrations as high as the abrasives in conventional toothpastes, its use as an abrasive is altogether consumer friendly in terms of its price.


The first daily whitening treatment with diamond particles! The new exclusive EMOFORM®-F DIAMOND formula with very fine diamond particles gently and deeply cleans the surface of the teeth without irritating sensitive areas. EMOFORM®-F DIAMOND: Helps eliminate spots and avoids the formation of dental plaque. Gently restores the natural whiteness of the enamel and makes teeth smooth and shiny. Particularly suitable for sensitive teeth. Helps protect and strengthen tooth enamel thanks to its fluoride-enriched formula which prevents cavities.



AN EXCLUSIVE FORMULA WITH DIAMOND PARTICLES suitable for sensitive teeth Contains diamond particles at least 100 times finer than the abrasive components used in most bleaching solutions.


Gently and deeply cleans the surface of the teeth down to the finest grooves in the enamel without irritating sensitive areas (RDA 30). Also works on composite and ceramic surfaces. Prevents the formation of tartar by smoothing the irregularities in the enamel and removing the biofilm. This makes it more difficult for tooth discoloration to settle on the enamel.

EDITORIAL Ethics vs Social Norms With the advent in our societ y of the “Hollywood Smile” concept, as a social norm, the dental practitioner is left in front of a problematic in which he has to determine what is right and what is wrong for the wellbeing of his patient.

The patient comes with a desire. But what if the ethics of the doctor finds it unreasonable? Sometimes it is a tedious job to try to convince the patient not to undertake a treatment plan that brings profit to the office but may not be the ideal treatment in the eyes of the dentist. And what if this is the desire of the patient and the dentist is left under such pressure. Should he give up and act according to the aspirations of his patient even though the treatment may bare a potential harm to the oral tissues? The consequences of an act should determine its rightness and not the act by itself. The Dentist should explain to the patient the possible risks that may arise from such treatments even though the upfront result is an enhancement in the esthetics. Will the dentist go as far as to lose his patient for another office that offers “Holly wood Smile” indiscriminately. This is an Ethical question that arises in face of the healthcare professional and he has to always bear in mind that the consequences of his acts will determine the well being of his patient in the future as well as the dentists reputation.

Dr. Tony Dib

Should the dentist sacrifice his ethics under the social norm pressure? This question is left to everyone of us to try to give it the right answer.

A new ultrasound feature complements the light acceleration by helping to better focus on tooth stains in the enamel for optimal targeting with the gel. The high-end features continue with passive air ionizer, intuitive color TUI panel and audible call button that can give periodic updates on the remaining time for treatment.

In response to customer feedback, we created a system that was highly mobile and sleek, that required less space to operate with. The Beyond II utilizes high-powered LED and a dedicated system-specific cheek retractor to allow for optimal targeting of the light to the gel that will follow the patient’s movement. Key features are twopatient simultaneous whitening function capability, passive air ionizer and intuitive touch user interface. The Beyond II can be used for full standalone chairside treatment or for single touch up situations where gingival protection may not be required. Secondary light, cheek retractors and trays sold separately. Comes in white, silver and blue colors.

Single Visit Dentistry with CEREC Single visit dentistry is an emerging expectation amongst patients today. Everything from a single source for safer, better and faster dentistry, and this is made possible by CEREC. Dentists can now deliver full contour crowns and small bridges made of the fullstrength high-quality zirconium oxide chairside while the patient waits. Spare your patients the discomfort of a conventional impression tray. Take digital impressions, with CEREC Omnicam, our small powder-free colour camera. CEREC Software 4.5 then generates outstanding restoration proposals, based on the unique “Biojaw” function which is optimally synchronised with the CEREC grinding and milling unit to produce extremely precise restorations. Full contour zirconia restorations are sintered and glazed for a high-gloss finish at the dentist’s chair in the compact CEREC SpeedFire furnace.

Celtra® Zirconia-Reinforced Lithium Silicate (ZLS) The new generation of high strength glass-ceramic, (ZLS), is available in the form of CAD/CAM blocks for CEREC and inLab, Celtra® Duo, or as pellets via the traditional pressing procedure, Celtra® Press. This unique material provides top aesthetics thanks to its chameleon effect, enabling them to blend in with surrounding teeth for a natural vitality and lifelike appearance. Celtra® Duo provides you with an unsurpassed level of freedom, control, and workflow flexibility. It can be processed with two alternative methods; Mill and Polish, offering a restoration of around 210 MPa in just 15 minutes, and Mill and Fire, stain/glaze firing the material to achieve the strength of lithium disilicate (370 MPa). Celtra® Press offers high strength (>500 MPa), creating natural opalescence and translucency alongside stable margins. It is also simple and fast to process thanks to a minimal reaction layer, easy polishing, and a simplified shade system.

Company name: DÜRR DENTAL AG Country of origin: Germany Website: DÜRR DENTAL represents progress and innovation in dental medicine. The headquarters of the independent family business are in Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany. The business group with a turnover of more than 200 Mio. Euro, employs more than 1,000 people worldwide. Many standards in dental medicine originated from Dürr Dental developments such as oil-free dental compressed air or hygienic spray-mist suction. Dürr Dental compressed air and suction systems have made the company one of the global market leaders in dental medicine.

In the areas of compressed air, suction, imaging, dental care and hygiene, this innovative leader provides many system solutions. Dürr Dental sets the benchmark with its developments and has the right choice of products for all requirements. To achieve the best possible quality our manufacturing is done almost exclusively in Germany. Our greatest advances have been in digital diagnostics: high quality intraoral images with VistaCam as well as high quality digital radiographs with VistaScan imaging plate system.

Dürr Dental expands its expertise with the new brand Lunos® for professional prophylaxis Dürr is a global dental specialist and renowned for its top product lines, including Dürr Dental compressors and suction units, Dürr System Hygiene, as well imaging systems and the Vector ultrasonic system. Their high standards and expectations are still the source of motivation for employees now as they were back then, particularly in the latest, new area of Prevention and Therapy. With the motto ‘the best by design’ the Company aspires to create entirely new opportunities. Above all else, the focus here is on the partnerships between the company and dental surgeries and on providing a range of carefully coordinated products. It goes without saying that, right from the start, during development, the highest demands were set in terms of medical quality, user-friendliness and patient satisfaction. The portfolio ranges from dental rinse solutions and powder jet handpieces with a unique exchangeable chamber principle to a wide range of different powders and pastes – an evolution for dental practices and for Dürr Dental!


VistaVox S: CBCT and panoramic images with exceptional image quality The jaw-shaped field of view of the VistaVox S maps the diagnostically relevant range of a 130-mm volume. Thanks to this changed volume shape, VistaVox S also completely covers the region of the rear molars – an essential requirement for diagnostics, e.g. for an impacted wisdom tooth. VistaVox S additionally offers ten further Ø 50 x 50 mm volumes: five each for the upper jaw and for the lower jaws. These are used if the indication only requires imaging of a certain region of the jaw, e.g. for endodontical or implantological treatments. Depending on the required level of detail in the image, the volumes can be used with a resolution of either 80 or 120 μm. Supplemented by the 17 panoramic programmes in the tried-and-tested S-pan technology, this provides dental practices with excellent imaging diagnostics in both the 2D and 3D areas.

A new formulation for Orotol® plus and MD 555 cleaner gives even better results The suction unit disinfectant Orotol ® plus and MD 555 cleaner have long been viewed as the gold standard. The improved formulation of the MD 555 cleaner from Dürr Dental represents the best-possible system solution for the removal of persistent deposits on dental units. Both concentrates complement each other perfectly; whilst Orotol ® plus deals stringently with bacteria, fungi and viruses, MD 555 cleaner reliably removes deposits of insoluble salts, limescale, prophylaxis powders, or calcium carbonate-based Pearl products from all components in the suction unit – including the lines. When performed regularly this considerably reduces the risk of a loss of performance or complete outage of the unit. Use of the unbeatable duo also increases the service life of your suction unit. Independent experts concur with Dürr Dental’s estimation of the benefits afforded by regular use in improving the general care of suction units - every second unit in a German practice is thought to be suffering from poor performance due to inadequate cleaning. Disinfection does not always mean proper cleaning! Dürr Dental hopes to play its part in improving this situation. Dental News Yearbook 2018

XP-endo® Shaper Plus sequence


FKG Dentaire presents its new single file sequence

A new generation of Swiss-made instruments enables safer and more effective root canal treatments, thanks to unique 3D extension capabilities. The XP-endo® Shaper Plus sequence, launched by leading Swiss endodontic firm FKG Dentaire SA, solves a common problem for dentists: how to treat complex root canal systems without causing damage to the dentinal structure. FKG combined unique Adaptive Core™ technology with 3D design to create instruments that can easily adapt to the canal anatomy to clean once impossible-to-reach areas. The result is enhanced debris removal and irrigation for a more gentle, conservative treatment compared to instrumentation using traditional NiTi files.

“The main problem with conventional files is their lack of flexibility, which means that dentists can’t remove all the debris, but sometimes end up taking off too much healthy dentin,” says Thierry Rouiller, CEO of FKG Dentaire. “But that all changes with this XP-endo® generation of instruments.” The patented MaxWire® alloy reacts to the body’s temperature, making the tools highly flexible compared to instruments of the same final size. A small, free-floating adaptive core designed in 3D allows the instruments to expand and progress with agility along the canal while resisting to cyclic fatigue. • The XP-endo® Shaper (XP-S) performs 3D debridement of the canal while respecting its natural shape. • The XP-endo® Finisher (XP-F) achieves 3D cleaning and biofilm removal, including in areas impossible to reach with traditional files. • The instruments are delivered in a sterile blister pack destined for single patient use, thus maximising safety. With the XP-endo® Shaper Plus sequence, dentists have the most advanced Swiss precision tools at their fingertips to perform a complete, minimally invasive root canal instrumentation.

Rooter™ S FKG Dentaire presents its new cordless endodontic motor The outstanding feature of this new instrument is its ability to be used both on its own and in combination with the new apex locator from FKG, the S-Apex™.

Convincing functions in practice

The Rooter S and S-Apex combination

With its modular capabilities, the new endodontic motor from FKG provides users with maximum possible flexibility during treatment. The elegant endodontic motor only weighs 103 grams and guarantees application without any signs of fatigue. In addition, the angle piece can be turned through 290° to ensure optimum visibility in all quadrants. This is assisted above all in the molar sector by the extremely small head, which has an integrated electrode file.

The Rooter S can also be connected to the FKG S-Apex by data transfer cable in order to provide additional functions such as “Auto Start and Stop” or automatic stop as soon as the file has reached the reference point (“Auto Apical Stop”).

With speeds from 50 to 1,000 rpm, users have the choice of eleven different speed settings to suit their individual needs. The user can adjust all functions by push-button and store the settings at six storage locations. The easy-to-read colour display shows all the relevant information and settings and can be turned through 180° for left-handed users. Acoustic signals further assist root canal preparation as the user does not have to keep looking at the instrument’s display. Dental News Yearbook 2018
