Let’s simpli5y full mouth implant supported rehabilitation
Implant supported restorations have been shown to be a reliable way to rehabilitate partially or completely edentulous areas, with high survival rates in the long term reported by systematic reviews of clinical evidence. At the beginning of the millennium, distally tilted implants were proposed for these situations, enabling the use of denser bone located in the anterior mandible and replacement of posterior teeth without extended cantilevers. “Simpli5y” treatment concept is based on the insertion of 2 implants in the inter foraminal region of completely edentulous mandibular arch and three implants in the maxillary arch , allowing the connection of prostheses with up to 12 teeth, similarly in the maxillary arch two distal posterior implants are placed with a distal tilt of up to 450 and a central implant in the either of the central incisor region, with as much as possible towards the middle line , thus three implants supporting the fixed connection of prosthesis with up to 12 teeth. “Simpli5y” was developed to maximize the use of the available residual bone in atrophic jaws with the minimal number of implants with adequate and appropriate dimensions of implants , allowing immediate function and avoiding regenerative procedures (such as bone grafting) that increases treatment costs, patient morbidity, and complications inherent to these procedures. This presentation will present an overview of this concept.

Hypnosis in Dentistry with Neuroscientific and Neuroimaging Aspects
Hypnosis is an event that evoke a change at behaviour, awarenes, emotions, perceptions or interactions on a human or community induced by another individual or sytem which causes by initiating communication with various strategies and techniques.Hypnosis is an effective, cheap, easy and harmless method with proven scientific validity and health benefits, especially with neuroimaging methods. For this reason, it should be included in dentistry education and daily practice.Dentists are always in communication and interraction with their patients and actually use hypnotic communication daily with or without being aware of it. In Turkey, according to the Traditional and Complementary Medicine Practices regulation stated at annex – ¾ published in the official newspaper numbered 29158 in 27/10/2014, hypnosis was alowed as a supportive method of treatment limited only to these areas for the phobia, purpose of relieving pain, anesthesia, tooth grinding, adaptation to treatment and prosthetics, temperomandibular joint dysfonction, trigeminal neuralgia and oral problems in dentistry. For this reason, we will explain the conce.pts of patients’ susceptibility, some important scientific evidences that are proven by neuroimaging methods in relation to pain. Some hypnosis techniques such as effective

Materials and Techniques for Alveolar Bone Augmentation
Tooth loss can develop due to many factors such as trauma or periodontal disease, and bone and soft tissue loss follow this condition. It causes difficulty in the treatment in terms of aesthetics and functionality, and also, its affect the success of implant treatment. One of the key factor in the treatment is the recipient site and its follow mechanical and biological adaptation, technical sensitivity and correct indication. Therefore, it is importanat to good analysis of the augmentation area and selection of the right technique. Recently, many different augmentation techniques have been introduced to reduce these negative effects, and novel techniques are still researched. In this presentation, the augmentation techniques we apply to our patients, the clinical results of these techniques and the points that require technical sensitivity will be explained through cases and brief information about newly developed techniques, will be presented.

Beauty is in the Eye of the Observer
The subject of this speech is those “three observers” who examine the images obtained in a study conducted to measure the diagnostic performance of a new imaging method or to radiographically examine the effects of a treatment method or a dental material. The selection of the observers and the process of observation, ie radiographic image examination, directly affect the findings to be obtained from a study. In addition, determination of intra-observer and inter-observer agreement is important in interpreting these findings correctly. Methods related to radiographic examination will be reviewed in the speech. The focus will be on tips that can be useful in designing a research or interpreting an existing study.

Inflammation as a Link between Oral and Systemic Diseases
Oral diseases are associated with more than 50 systemic diseases. This link can be bidirectional in which the systemic diseases impact the initiation, progression and severity of oral diseases such as periodontal diseases or the systemic impact of oral diseases can impair the management of systemic diseases. This presentation will focus on the inflammation in the oral-systemic connection as a mechanism and a therapeutic target.

Registration of Dental Trauma Cases with Eden Baysal Dental Trauma Index
Traumatic dental injuries are one of the emergency situations of dentistry. Impact to the face and jaw area causes damage to the surrounding hard and soft tissues as well as teeth at various levels. The correct diagnosis of the tissues affected by the damage, the type of injury and the development of the tooth play a decisive role in treatment planning. Keeping accurate records of trauma cases has an important place in evaluating the prognosis. Eden Baysal Dental Trauma Index is the first index developed for the recording of trauma and it is based on a 5-digit coding principle that allows the effects of injury to be recorded on the basis of teeth and tissues. The index allows the clinician to easily record the development status of the apex with information about the type of injury related to the affected structures (enamel, dentin, cementum, pulp, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone) according to Andreasen’s classification. The “Modified Eden Baysal Dental Trauma Index”, on the other hand, provides recording of soft tissue injuries with superscript numbers on patient base in addition to information about teeth affected by trauma. This presentation will include the content of the index and practical information about its clinical use.

Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Dentistry – Materials and Techniques. A success story
Modern restorative dentistry is based upon the principle of minimal cutting of hard dental tissues as it is widely documented and thus accepted the paramount importance of maximum preservation of sound tissues. Alongside goes the need for durable, long lasting cosmetic restorations for both anterior and posterior teeth. In response to these needs industry provides dentists with a large amount of suitable materials. In the present lecture advantages and disadvantages of cosmetic restorative materials will be discussed alongside with materials exhibiting some unique characteristics and also clinical step by step presentation of techniques on minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry. The goal of the presentation is to comprehensively discuss materials and techniques for the successful implementation of modern restorative dentistry.

Modulation of Bone Destruction in Apical Periodontitis Lesions: Melatonin?
The pathogenesis of apical periodontitis mainly arises from the host inflammatory reaction caused by microbial infections in the pulp tissue and root canals. The pathological changes of the periapical tissues are caused by microbes themselves, their toxins, noxious metabolic by products, and pulp tissue in the root canal system. The inflammatory process is primarily initiated in the infected and necrotic pulp but may then spread into the periapical tissues, which may lead to surrounding bone resorption. In recent years, the importance of host modulation with the formation, persistence and resolution of periapical lesions has been emphasized in several clinical and experimental studies aimed to fully explore the pathogenesis. Such clinical and experimental studies aimed to reveal the existing uncertainty would encourage implementation of more specified and target oriented treatment approach. Modulation of the host response may provide an adjunct to the management of apical periodontitis. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the agents that would be protective against periapical bone resorption in light of the current literature and the effects of melatonin on host inflammatory response and bone destruction as well.

Prosthodontic rehabilitation during and beyond Covid-19
Improvements in techniques, materials and technology over the years have made it possible to satisfactorily rehabilitate majority of challenging prosthodontic cases. The use of implantology and dental technologies has seen rehabilitation of many such cases. These developments however often come at a higher cost which socio-economically disadvantaged patients might not afford. The negative impact of Covid-19 pandemic on the economy has made this challenge worse as many people have joined this group. This can be very disheartening for those patients who are in dire need of Prosthodontic treatment or rehabilitation but unfortunately cannot afford it. Going into these unchartered territories of Covid-19, it is very important for the Dental practitioners and Specialists to be cognisant of the issues affecting their patients, including the increased cost of treatment. In light of this reality, the conventional and more ‘appropriatech’ methods will be more relevant when carrying out prosthodontic rehabilitation. This presentation will cover the use of the philosophy of ‘Appropriatech’ in Prosthodontics which describes the use of appropriate technology (meaning both materials and methods) to provide cost effective treatment without sacrificing prosthodontic principles. This discussion hopefully will contribute positively to the management of prosthodontic patients during and post the Covid-19 era.

GNATHOLOGY 1.0: Biomechanics and Occlusion, Dynamics of the Masticatory organ, Reference Position (RP), Custom Tailored Dentistry (Full Documentation) There is an increase of patients with TMJ. A profound education in diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities is an important factor in health economics. Interdisciplinary diagnosis and treatment are an important part of Dentistry. Another topic is focused on the interdisciplinary treatment of the complex patient: Patients with dysgnathia, post oral surgery, patients with anxiety or neurological or psychiatric problems. New scientific results, rapid development of dental materials and new technologies are forcing the craniomandibular system to adapt to new challenges. Strategic case planning becomes very important. Modern dentistry needs to be an interdisciplinary teamwork in order to deal with complex cases. Coexisting diseases force dentists to work together with other medical disciplines. A comprehensive and standardized case documentation is the basis of modern “evidence based” treatment. Scientific knowledge and evidence-based dentistry become more and more important in the context of an interdisciplinary treatment. Interdisciplinary networking of the different medical disciplines needs profound and conceptional knowledge of different diagnostic and therapeutic options. Interdisciplinary dentistry aims to improve the complete health status of patients.
