The 7 pillars of ‘denture’ wisdom. Removable prosthodontics - Giving your patients truly aesthetic and functional dentures
This lecture is aimed at igniting your enthusiasm and love for removable prosthodontics, showing how we can change our patients’ lives with beautifully made dentures. Finlay will present his methods and techniques used to deliver dentures with superb aesthetics and optimal function. Finlay will cover complete dentures, partial dentures and implant retained dentures. This will be a very practical and clinically useful presentation; abundantly illustrated with photographs and videos showing how Finlay and his dental technician, Rowan Garstang, produce removable dental prostheses with optimal function and aesthetics.
Finlay says, “I used worry when providing dentures for my patients as success was so unpredictable. After dedicating the last 20 years to this discipline, I now love making them and it is all I do in my clinical practice. I love teaching the dental team how my team and I do it. I am so fortunate in having one the world’s finest dental technicians working in the next room, Rowan Garstang. During the last 20 years Rowan and I have made over 800 sets of dentures and have only had one patient that we know of where they have required dental implants to support our dentures afterwards.”
Aims, objectives and anticipated outcomes:
Have an improved understanding of state of the art complete dentures, partial denture and implant supported dentures production
Understand how to make excellent impressions in order to maximise retention and suction
Partial dentures which function like removable bridges
Understand that good quality removable dentures are a valid alternative to implant supported restorations
Planning tooth position and lip support
Be able to give patients’ dentures that look like age-appropriate, beautiful teeth
Improve your skills when providing dentures
Increased professional satisfaction and rekindle your enthusiasm for dentures
Have improved communication with dental technicians and the dental team
Have happier patients with improved outcomes
Dr. Suttons lecture will be complemented by a workshop presetning methods and techniques used to deliver dentures with superb aesthetics and optimal function

Non Surgical and Surgical Approaches to change tooth prognosis and Maximize Esthetic Periodontal Outcomes
Managing patient demands for highly esthetic and functional periodontal reconstructive outcomes is a major challenge in Dentistry.
Soft and hard tissues deficiency can be corrected by the proper surgical technique combined with the use of the appropriate biomaterial in almost each clinical case.
Classical Periodontal Surgical techniques and their combination with new flap design for plastic surgery with an appropriate suturing approach and the indicated bio-materials, promote predictable periodontal regeneration.
Aim of the innovative surgical approach is to allow blood clot stabilization and topromote a firm and better wound healing.
Guided tissue regeneration (GTR), periodontal tissue engineering by means of growth factors, and modified and simplified papilla preservation techniques, provide innovative solutions to address high level patient esthetic requirements.
This presentation will highlight reconstructive approaches as well as discuss the importance of careful pre-surgical treatment planning necessary to avoid postoperative esthetic failures. In addition, the presentation will emphasize the importance of the multidisciplinary approach, including periodontal, prosthetic, orthodontic and surgical parameters.
Dr. Rasperini´s presentation will be complemented with a workshop demonstrating key elements of surgical techniques including flap design, suturing techniques and wound management, critical for enhancing periodontal wound repair and maximizing esthetic and clinical outcomes.
