Crestal Approach Sinus Augmentation with Osteotome Technique and Cartridge Delivery System
There are several ways to elevate the sinus membrane when accessed through the crest of the ridge and deliver graft into the sinus. Summers’ osteotome technique is one of the most widely used surgical procedures to achieve sinus elevation. One of the biggest challenges is instrumentation and grafting through the prepared osteotomy site. In this video, Dr. Kher will demonstrate the new cartridge delivery system from NovaBone that considerably reduces site preparation and facilitates elevation of the sinus membrane with the hydraulic pressure of Putty as it is delivered into the sinus.
Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques
There is rarely a day that clinicians do not have to deal with an extraction site. If implant therapy is a consideration, then bone and soft tissue quantity and quality must be factored into treatment options. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.
Managing Risk and Complications in Anterior Mandible Implant Therapy
In this presentation, Dr. Imad Salloum describes the risks and complications that may arise in placing implants in the anterior mandible.
General anatomy and associated risks are discussed along with the management of possible complications associated with surgery in this area. The emphasis of this presentation is that only through proper planning and understanding of relevant anatomy can implant placement in the anterior mandible be made to be safe and predictable.
Re-treatment Endodontics of a Missed Distal Canal.
Persistent pain in an Endodontically treated tooth can be often due to missed anatomy. This case demonstrates how an entire distal canal/root was missed during initial endodontic therapy. High mag images through the surgical microscope are used to demonstrate calcification which can obscure pulpal anatomy.
Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients
This presentation aims to bring some possibilities in the treatment of edentulous patients with a severe atrophic maxilla. The major problem is that the absence of an appropriate bone bed, will compromise any approach with bone grafts and substitutes, as well as involving a greater morbidity and treatment time. In this way the oral rehabilitation with zygomatic implants is a current need for many patients, which will require a scientific knowledge of the dental care professional. Through this slide show and video demonstration you will be able to recognize and diagnose cases recommended for the therapy with zygomatic implants and its possible configurations supporting an oral rehabilitation.
