Gurun Dr Pascal Magne ger kurs den 24-25 maj 2019 i Stockholm


”Gurun” Dr Pascal Magne är en mycket populär och efterfrågad kursgivare. På kursen ”Update in the biomimetic principles – including CAD/CAM” i Stockholm gör han en djupdykning i forskningen runt biomimetisk tandvård. Många anser att detta är den ultimata formen av både minimalinvasiv och estetisk tandvård.

Dr Pascal Magne är en internationellt erkänd föreläsare som helt gått ifrån de traditionella preparationsteknikerna och endast utför minimalinvasiva behandlingar med bondat porslin och komposit. Hans fokus på denna typ av restaurationer har, och kommer att få, en stor betydelse för de funktionella, estetiska och även socioekonomiska möjligheterna för praktiserande tandläkare.

Dr Magne har författat mer än 200 publikationer och hans mest uppskattade verk, boken ”Bonded porcelain restorations in the anterior region – a biomimetic approach”, ses av många som jobbar minimalinvasivt som en bibel och den har översatts till 12 språk.

Dr Magne innehar positionen som “the Don and Sybil Harrington Foundation Professor of Esthetic Dentistry in the Division of Restorative Sciences”, vid University of Southern California, Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. Han tog bland annat sin tandläkarexamen vid University of Geneva Dental School, i Schweiz (1989 DMD, 1992 MSc och 2002 PhD). Under perioden början av 1989 till 1997 undervisade han på denna tandläkarhögskola i ämnena “fixed prosthodontics and occlusion”, ”operative dentistry” och endodonti. Under perioden 1997—199 var Dr Magne Visiting Associate Professor vid Minnesota Dental Research Center for Biomaterials and Biomechanics, University of Minnesota, School of Dentistry, och mellan 1999 och 2004 var han Senior Lecturer i the Division of Fixed Prosthodontics and Occlusion at the University of Geneva Dental School. Han hade denna tjänst fram tills han rekryterades till University of Southern California 2004.

Dr Magne är en av grundarna till the Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry och mentor i the Bio-Emulation think-tank group. Under 2012, introducerade han ett helt nytt sätt att utbilda freshmanstudenter i ”Dental Morphology, Function and Esthetics (the 2D/3D/4D approach)” vid Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry på University of Southern Californa.

Ny forskning på bondade restaurationer med fokus på CAD/CAM

Dr Pascal Magne är en känd person för många i Skandinavien. För tio år sedan besökte han Sverige på ett SACD-arrangemang i Stockholm och 2013 var han en av huvudtalarna på DentaNet Symposium i Köpenhamn. Tre år senare gav han en kurs i Oslo som fick topputvärderingar av de mer än 300 deltagarna.

Naturligtvis har det skett en hel del sedan 2016, och ännu mer har hänt under de tio år sedan Dr Magne besökte Stockholm förra gången. I maj kommer han att utgå från sin senaste forskning runt bondade restaurationer med fokus på användningen av CAD/CAM.

Inför kursen har vi lyckats få en intervju med Dr Pascal Magne som du kan läsa nedan.

Your program May 2019 will be 50% related to CAD/CAM – can you tell more in-depth about how much research you have done and are doing at the University of Southern California?

I like to say that CAD/CAM technology is to the dentist what the smartphone has become for everyday life. A tool for improving our workflow, but also a double-edge sword that should be handled with caution. Nowadays, most of our research focuses on CAD/CAM materials because they present unique mechanical properties compared to ”hand-made” restorations. Handcrafting remain unmatched for aesthetics – most will agree with this. So I will try to demonstrate that CAD/CAM and handcrafting can meet each other in the form of semi-(in)direct approaches and may be the solution for many patients. I believe that composite resins are also instrumental in this marriage.

In your expert opinion, what will be some of the most exciting future perspectives of CAD/CAM?

CAD/CAM, like your smartphone, is a multitask tool and will be used beyond just making restorations. It is a diagnostic tool and it will help for prognosis by monitoring wear and erosion with consecutive scans of dental arches, printing guides for tooth preparations, endodontics etc. The possibilities are endless and 3D and even 4D printing will make an enormous difference in the way we practice.

May 2019 will beside the CAD/CAM perspective be both an anterior and posterior update on bonding. Has a lot happened since you were in Scandinavia 2013 and 2016?

CAD/CAM systems do not cease to evolve and gain in efficiency and precision. There has not been a strict revolution during the last decade, but we have more experience. Manufacturers have tried to re-invent the wheel many times with new materials, but I think that the sound principles of biomimetic restorative dentistry are the same. Some interesting new fiber-reinforced materials and new research about radical no-post no-crown approaches will be presented because we keep investigating the topic with new ideas. We will also talk about some simple ways to keep improving your skills in bonding.

When you were here in 2013 and 2016, what do you recall the most about the Scandinavian dentists/delegates?

I remember very well the nice connections we made and especially the effort from the organizer, Peter Lembke Gerdes at Dentanet, to keep everyone connected and develop the professional network. Peter is all about networking and I love this because I guess dentists can have a very lonely life in the office. I see Scandinavian dentists, like myself, trying to make things simple rather than too complicated, realism and healthy lifestyle, with family values that shine in everyday life.

You are part of the Bio-Emulation group. What is the main purpose and the future perspective of the group?

The group is a Think Tank for innovation and advanced biomimetic restorative dentistry. Amazing tools have been produced such as the Polar eyes and the eLAB system for shade matching etc. Publishing and education are also amongst the main endeavors in the group, which generates very high level of continuing education courses and articles. Above all, it is inclusive of dental technicians, private practitioners, academics and researchers, a fantastic diversity of people with all kinds of backgrounds.

What would your best advice be if a dentist wants to
significantly improve aesthetics?

FALL IN LOVE WITH NATURE, watch and study the natural dentition and recognize that the God-made natural teeth are the blueprint for our work. GET INSPIRED and COPY it as faithfully as you can knowing that it cannot be fully matched. But strive to copy the work of the Master in Heaven.

You have published a lot of papers and are one of the most referred authors within dentistry. What research can we expect from you in the near future?

We want to keep building on the biomimetic approach and as I said before, simplifying the protocols and eliminate the old-fashioned armamentarium. Psalm 37:16 ”Less is more and more is less.”

We are also trying to think OUT of the box and look at uncharted territories such as recycling of wisdom teeth and natural teeth extracted for orthodontic reasons and combine them with CAD/CAM technology.

Dr Pascal Magne håller kurs den 24—25 maj på Clarion Hotel Arlanda Airport.
