Organizers: Prof. Dr. Alexandra Roman, Conf. Dr. Andrada Soancă, Asist. Univ. Dr. Daniela Condor, Asist Univ. Drd. Andreea Ciurea, Asist. Univ. Drd. Cristina Micu Periodontology Department, UMF Iuliu Hațieganu Cluj Napoca

In collaboration with Hdental Store

Date: 09.05.2019, 12.00-14.00

Location: Periodontology Department, 15th Victor Babes street

Number of participants: 12

Periodontitis is a destructive infectious disease characterized by pocket formation, attachment loss, which left untreated will lead to tooth loss. It needs a complex treatment that aims to eliminate the pathological flora and stop the destructive process. The ultimate goal of periodontal therapy is to achieve periodontal regeneration with the re-formation of all components of the periodontium, including periodontal ligament, gingival connective tissue, cementum and alveolar bone. In the last years, various techniques and procedures have been used to predictably regenerate the lost tooth’s supporting tissues such as the use of different bone grafting materials, guided tissue regeneration (GTR), biological factors, or combinations.

This workshop will focus on the surgical techniques and procedures used to achieve periodontal regeneration, and the participants will improve their practical skills to apply these techniques in current practice.

The current techniques will be explained, shown and repeated by the participants.

Participants will do a surgical regenerative procedure on pig jaws.

All materials and instruments will be provided by the organizers.

Attendance fees: 100 Lei

In collaboration with NuTechnologies

Date: 09.05.2019, 14.00-17.00

Number of participants: 12

Accurate provisional restorations are essential and serve a number of functions including protection of the pulpal tissues, prevention of bacterial contamination, and preservation of periodontal tissues. In addition, preventing migration of the tooth from its normal position, maintaining esthetics and oral functions, such as mastication and speech, is paramount. With the introduction of computer aided subtractive manufacturing and, in the recent years, additive manufacturing in the form of 3D printing, new and improved methods to obtain this type of restorations have been introduced.

The aim of the workshop is to familiarize participants with the digital workflow required to manufacture a provisional crown through DLP 3D printing, by completing all the clinical and technical steps: intra-oral scanning, CAD design, 3D printing, post-processing and cementation.

A live demonstration of intra-oral scanning will be performed on a patient, each participant will design a crown with the InLab (Sirona) CAD software, 3D printing through the DLP technique will be explained and demonstrated, each participant will complete the post-processing of a printed provisional crown and a live demonstration of the cementation procedure will be shown.

All materials and instruments will be provided by the organizers.

Attendance fee: 100 Lei


Workshop for students

Organizers: Sef Lucr. Dr. Botoș Alexandra, Sef Lucr. Dr. Burde Alexandru-Victor, Asist. Univ.Dr. Grecu Alexandru, Stud. Mariș Anamaria, Conf. Dr. Baciu Sorana, Conf.Dr. Manole Marius, Prof. Dr. Dudea Diana

Date: 10.05.2019, 16:00-20:00

Location: Department of Propaedeutics and Aesthetics, 32 Clinicilor Street, 1st floor, Room 108

Number of participants: 12

Reproduction of dental morphology and occlusion is a very important aspect in prosthodontics and restorative dentistry because restored dental surfaces have to ensure the masticatory function and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) integrity. Restored teeth should not transmit excessive force in the joint or alveolar bone, regardless of the intermaxillary relationship established.

This workshop is intended for dental medicine and dental technician students. It aims to familiarize participants with a sequential modeling technique based on additive modeling in a single wax color. The participants will perform the wax modeling of a maxillary first bicuspid and maxillary first molar, using all the accumulated knowledge of morphology and mandibular dynamics in an effective and pragmatic way.

All materials and instruments will be provided by the organizers.

Attendance fee – FREE – on the basis of the fee for attendance at the congress for students (it is paid at the reception of the symposium)


Organizers: Asist. Univ.Dr. Varvara Elena-Bianca, Sef Lucr. Dr. Gasparik Cristina, Asist. Univ.Dr. Varvara Adrian Mihai, Sef Lucr. Dr. Burde Alexandru-Victor, Prof. Dr. Dudea Diana.

Date: 08.05.2019, 1500-1800

Location: Department of Dental Propedeautics and Aesthetics, 32 Clinicilor Street, 1st floor, Room 109

Number of participants: 12

Composite resins can be successfully used to improve the patient’s esthetics through minimally invasive, low cost and high clinical performance treatments. The layering techniques of composite resins in different thicknesses, with varying degrees of translucency, permit to create esthetic restorations that mimic the natural characteristics of dental structures. The concept of anatomical stratification, and the correct placement of pigments and opacities, lead to the achievement of esthetic and predictable restorations of composite resins. This workshop is dedicated to dentists in search of theoretical and practical information regarding the layering technique of resin composites in the frontal area of the oral cavity.

The theoretical part includes notions related to the optical properties of dental structures, indications of use for the dental composites, possibilities for choosing the restoration materials, depending on their optical properties.

Afterwards, the participants will restore a frontal tooth, respecting the anatomical layering technique and following a step-by-step live demonstration. At the end, finishing and polishing procedures will be done as to obtain the details of shape, macro and/or micro texture.

All materials and instruments will be provided by the organizers.
