Dr. Akyalcin graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Currently, he serves as the director of the advanced education program of Orthodontics at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. He has published more than 40 papers, 6 chapters and an orthodontic textbook, and has been serving on the editorial review board of prominent orthodontic journals such as Angle Orthodontists and American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.
The major key to orthodontic treatment planning is to identify the direction and amount of dental movement required within each quadrant. Without sound objectives and proper planning, anchorage requirements could easily be overlooked. While cephalometric analyses are helpful in providing a rough estimate of skeletal and dental relationships, treatment goals need to be developed accordingly with the face. In this presentation, instead of using the mandibular incisor position as the primary criterion, the aim is to provide a facial aesthetics oriented treatment approach using the maxillary incisor position as the starting point while the mandibular arch still serves as the diagnostic arch. In this context, VTO is a critical tool for anchorage reinforcement together with the use of TADs and other conventional mechanics. This is possible by customizing the required amount of tooth movement in each arch quadrant and applying the appropriate anchorage strategy for the individual. In this presentation, clinical cases will be presented to facilitate the discussion of the key concepts of orthodontic excellence by sound mechanics and the use of temporary anchorage devices (TADs). Secondly, it is aimed to present the importance of strategic positioning of the maxillary central incisor in producing optimum aesthetics.
Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands
Keynote: What are the advantages of Digital planning and Custom Orthodontic Appliances in Orthodontics?
Time : 09:30-10:00
Dr. Hero Breuning is recognized internationally for his innovation in orthodontic procedures and appliances. He is the “inventor” of the combination of active and passive selfligating brackets. He has lectured internationally on subjects such as efficient use of selflligating brackets, indirect bonding of brackets, efficient use of TAD’s: when to use miniscrews, palatal miniscrews or miniplates? He is assistant professor 3D imaging at the department of Orthodontics Nijmegen, the Netherlands and is involved in projects such as diagnosis using digital dental models, indications for CBCT’s, digital planning of orthodontic treatment advantages of custom orthodontic appliances and intra oral scanning for orthodontic patients. Hero Breuning published many research papers and articles in peer viewed professional journals. He is a reviewer for 7 orthodontic journals. Currently, he prepares a new boek on digital planning in orthodontics, with professor Chung How Kau and professor Orhan Tuncay.
Orthodontic treatment will rapidly change during the next years. The use of intraoral scanners, CBCT radiographs, and 3D extra oral images, will allow the use of a “virtual head” for treatment planning and appliance fabrication. Custom made orthodontic appliances, such as individual brackets, indirect bonding, custom wires, lingual braces and aligners will allow efficient and fast orthodontic treatment.
The use of the intraoral scanner and the smartphone photographs during treatment, will allow evaluation of the treatment progress and the correction of treatment to achieve the treatment goal planned, without delay.
Patient will know the result of treatment before the actual start. Durng treatment the will be informed about the treatment progress. Off course, every treatment should be changed when needed. Monitoring during treatment will improve the progress.
After treatment, retention of the treatment result will be needed. Evaluation of treatment stability using intraoral scanners and the smartphone of the patient can be used to prevent a severe relaps of the treatment result.
Keynote: Complex Orthodontic-Prosthetic Treatment – Treatment Plan, Treatment Options and Possible Mistakes
Time : 10:00-10:30
Specialisations, courses and participation in congresses: USA, Monaco, Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, Greece, Turkey and more. Member of the Bulgarian Orthodontic Society, European Orthodontic Association, American Orthodontic Association and World Federation of Orthodontists.
Nowadays more and more adult patients are looking for orthodontic treatment. More ofter an additional correction is needed in order to restore one or more missing teeth more. Because of that the colaboration of the dental specialists is of great importance. In our practice we have many years of experience with the complex treatment of such patients. Our team consists of an orthodontist and an implantologist.
The role of the orthodontist is to decide what the treatment plan will be in colaboration with the implantologist; to choose the right mechanics; to decide what is the appropriate retention for the particular patient.
The implantologist’s role is to determine the exact medio-distal size of the space needed to restore the missing tooth; to determine the type and the size of the implant, the operative technique and the time of insertion; to select the appropriate type of prosthetic construction; together with the orthodontist determines the appropriate retention of the opened space.
We can divide the patients in need of complex treatment into two main groups – with the need of restoring missing teeth in the distal regions and missing frontal teeth.
In the distal section, we most often replace missing second premolars or first molars due to hypodontia or caries complication. We found that when we get enough space, it is not a problem to place the implant during orthodontic treatment. We do the prosthetic recovery after finishing the orthodontic treatment.
We most often recover missing upper incisors in the front - unilaterally or bilaterally. Taking in mind the difficulties we have encountered in recovering missing teeth in the frontal areas, we concluded that it is better to finish the orthodontic treatment first and then place the implants.

Dr. Thamer is the general secretary of the British Academy of Implant and Restorative Dentistry. He lectures extensively in the field of Aesthetic dentistry and is an active member of numerous dental societies. He was a part-time lecturer at the University of Jordan. Dr. Thamer conducts many lectures and media shows dedicated towards public awareness in the field of cosmetic dentistry.
In the last few years, great achievements have been made in the field of aesthetic and adhesive dentistry. Meeting the patients’ desires and expectations with minimal prosthetic intervention is becoming a large issue to dentists. There are many tools and materials that can assist dentists in evaluating and achieving the best aesthetic outcomes. In this presentation, detailed analysis of the most significant clinical and technical procedures will be discussed. Starting with the clinical diagnosis and diagnostic wax up, smile test drive, and creating a harmonious occlusion with minimal restorative intervention will be described. We will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require full mouth rehabilitation and minimally invasive approaches keeping patients' input and wishes in-mind. The key to success is to preserve the original structure of the compromised tooth and, on the other hand, involve a very low biologic intervention.

He has various published more than 60 papers in reputed journals and has been serving as an Chief editorial board member of repute. He is also Chief and member of Turkish Fishing Organisation, and member of Turkish Dental Tourism Organization
His Current Research Interests are Dental Caries Chemistry, Pulp Capping,Restoration of Endodonticaly Treated Teeth,Dental Caries Management and smiling design. International medical Dental Tourism. His mostly indexed papers are pulp capping and caries releated studies.
The purpose of this study was to determine the pH values of calcium hydroxide and MTA mixtures in combination with either distilled water, one local anaesthetic solution, physiological saline solution, Cholor hexidine (CHX) and Glyserine which are commonly used as a dressing materials during endodontic treatment. The pH of each vehicle prior to mix with calcium hydroxide and MTA subsequently each prepared combination was determined using a digital pH meter. The pH measurements were determined at 3 min, 10 min, 1 h, 3h, 24 h, 48 h and 7 days. The results of this study indicated that; five different vehicles demonstrated similar pH changes range within pH 11–12 when mixed with calcium hydroxide.
While four different vehicles showed similar pH changes values with calcium hydroxide, MTA+local anaesthetic solution mixtures demonstared lower pH change values. This finding shows us anaesthetic solutions seems not available for to prepeare MTA for dental theraphies.
