Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Aesthetic Zone
The esthetic zone presents a far bigger challenge than any other area of the mouth. It is the one area that a patient has the ability to really scrutinize the work that has been done and anything that does not pass muster will quickly create problems in our practices. Uncompromising treatment planning is therefore essential to ensure the long term aesthetic stability of our esthetic cases. Treatment planning involves both bone and soft tissue therapy as both are critical for the stability. This lecture will highlife the importance of different treatment options as well as show numerous new techniques that are possible to achieve the results that both our patients and practitioners are proud of.
Controversies in Modern Implant Therapy; Lasers and Immediate Loading
The biological basis for clinical applications of Lasers and Immediate Loading will be discussed and and protocols for clinical applications will be demonstrated. Protocols for soft tissue management, treatment of peri-implantitis with lasers and the positive effects of the loading forces on the bone will be used in order to accelerate treatment in Implant dentistry.
Sinus Grafting and Minimal Risk Techniques
Sinus floor elevation represents today a predictable solution allowing implant placement in atrophic posterior maxilla with high implant success rate. Several techniques and different grafting biomaterials have been used clinically, depending on residual bone, patient’s needs and implantation protocols.
During this presentation, we will present latest advances in both lateral and crestal sinus floor elevation techniques. The importance of new advances and technologies, such as radiographic planning and the use of piezosurgery, will be exposed. These clinical advances will play a major in reducing risks and complications related to sinus grafting procedures while preserving maximum clinical efficiency.
Restoring the Pink and White Esthetics. Clinical Case Presentation
Every esthetic case is a challenge. As clinicians we need to understand and combine different treatment modalities and materials to achieve outstanding esthetic and functional results. This clinical case will demonstrate the importance of the little details, and how they influence the final result. We’ll go step by step thought the analyze, planning surgical and prosthetic procedures with focus on the key points that I find to be crucial.
The Diagnosis and Treatment of Inflammatory Peri-implant Disease: We Have a Problem
This detailed presentation will discuss the etiology, microbiology, histopathology and clinical manifestations of peri-implant disease, and will present evidence based in-office and at-home treatment regimens to stop mucositis from progressing to peri-implantitis. Additionally, "COAP", a new minimally invasive surgical technique for the treatment of peri-implantitis will be introduced.
