    New Generation Materials in Restorative Dentistry

    Digital technologies have revolutionized prosthodontics, and computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) systems have been integrated into daily practice by means of subtractive manufacturing and, more recently, additive manufacturing. Of many available additive manufacturing technologies, digital light processing (DLP) has been commonly used for dental procedures. Regardless of the technology, additive manufacturing improved the manufacturing processes by enabling cost-efficient fabrication with less waste and the fabrication of products with more complex geometries. The additive manufacturing of dental products has become more popular given the advantages of this technology over subtractive manufacturing, and additively manufactured composite resins that can be used for definitive prostheses have been recently introduced.
    Even though these materials have been indicated for use in definitive prostheses by their manufacturers, the properties of prostheses fabricated by using materials that could affect their clinical success should be broadly investigated.
    The presentation will focus on the key components of 3D printing, how printers function and on recently introduced resin-based materials that are claimed to be used for definitive restorations. The studies on the accuracy of various restorations manufactured with these novel materials will be presented. Clinical steps for printing and recent patient treatment situations will be demonstrated with pictures.

    Prof. Dr. Burak Yilmaz I obtained my dental degree in 2000 and received my PhD degree in Prosthodontics in 2007. Following 2 years of private practice, I completed a full-time Implant Prosthodontic Fellowship post-doctoral program at the Ohio State University College of Dentistry Implant Clinic in 2009. After completing the Fellowship, I was hired as a full-time tenure-track faculty member in the rank of Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University, College of Dentistry. I received tenure and promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in 2014. Then, I was promoted to the rank of Full Professor in 2019. I was involved in teaching dental and postdoctoral students and research in the Division of Restorative Science and Prosthodontics, also practicing in the Dental Faculty Practice during my time at The Ohio State University. In September 2020, I became the Director of Digital Dental Technologies Research Laboratory at the University of Bern School of Dental Medicine. I am also, currently, an Adjunct Professor at the Ohio State University. I hold a special interest in implant prosthodontics and digital dentistry and published more than 280 original research studies, and clinical and technical reports. I am the co-author of the Implants Chapter in 5th and 6th editions of “Contemporary Fixed Prosthodontics” textbook by Rosenstiel et al. My activity in specialty organizations includes Associate Editorship at the Journal of Prosthodontics, membership on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry and Journal of Dentistry, Digital Dentistry Section, and I also serve as the Chair of the E-Posters Committee in the Academy of Osseointegration. I am a member of the American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics.
