Digital Smile Design and 3D Printing of Treatment Provisionals in Modern Dental Practice Premium Member Content

Digital Smile Design and 3D Printing of Treatment Provisionals in Modern Dental Practice
The DSD Concept 2D is the portal to Digital Dentistry and Digital Workflow. Utilizing Facial Aesthetics as a starting point and ending with a functional, aesthetic and emotionally fulfilling Smile designed with Natural Algorithms via Keynote and translated via a DSD Planning Center into a 3D printed Wax-Up, or Full Arch Implant Guides and Conversion Smile. DSD protocol is special in that it fosters True “Team Synergy” between the Restorative Dentist to Laboratory and Specialist. This results in more predictable treatment outcomes from simple Smile Cases to Full Mouth Rehabilitations involving natural teeth to dental implants. Finally, by learning DSD’s unique connection to the Emotional component of Dentistry, you will gain skills on how to Consult, Present, and Gain High Levels of Case Acceptance.

The "Robin Hood" Approach to Tissue Engineering Premium Member Content

The "Robin Hood" Approach to Tissue Engineering
Autogenous tissue is still a gold standard for augmentation procedures. There are great sources of patient’s own tissue, often in adjacent areas, that can be utilized. The soft tissue can be moved, flipped, rolled, pediculated - in order to take from the rich sites and give to the poor ones. A novel approach for the wound closure after ridge augmentation and/or implant placement in lateral maxilla will be presented.

Mastering Anterior Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Mastering Anterior Implant Aesthetics
Implant in the aesthetic zone is considered to be the ultimate challenge for the Implantologist.   The chief concern in the early days of implantology was tissue health and implant survival.    These days surgical success seems to be a given, and the treatment is considered a failure without aesthetic and prosthetic success.   The lecture will cover the absolute latest trends ..paradigm shifts , summarize  the inferences of the  latest articles in the field of implant aesthetics     This lecture will also cover failures in cases not just in the  traditional procedures   but also the failures of the newer protocols.

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry
Knowledge of bone biology and physiology are crucial for successful dento-alveolar reconstruction. The presentation will review the natural healing process of the bone and the sequence of events needed for proper regeneration. This process will then be discussed and compare with the present materials and technologies available in the market including alloplastics and allogenic materials. The role of the Stem Cells and rh-BMP2 will be exposed as part of these new trends in alveolar reconstruction for modern implant dentistry. Multiple cases will be presented demonstrating the versatility and outcomes in different clinical situations based on biological, bio-mechanics, and implant aesthetic needs.

“IPG-DET Technique” The Evolution of New Age Concept Premium Member Content

“IPG-DET Technique” The Evolution of New Age Concept
“IPG” DET protocol: a pioneer technique of internal bone regeneration in the sinus without the need of sinus floor elevation (SFE) Patients suffering from maxilla deficiencies are treated with extensive bone transplantation and Sinus Floor Elevation (SFE) procedures, in order to accomplish a successful and stable dental implantation. In 2014, “IPG” DET – called the Ioannis P. Georgakopoulos Dentist Education Institute Technique – has been proven a solid and reliable alternative to SFE. Actually, “IPG” DET is a well-established, simple, safe, efficient and cost-effective dental implantation protocol that combines a complex of fibrin, concentrated growth factors and CD34+ stem cells (fibrin membrane) along with bone grafting and intentional perforation of the Schneider’s membrane towards a rapid implant insertion.

Hydraulics and Densification in Sinus & Ridge Management Premium Member Content

Hydraulics and Densification in Sinus & Ridge Management
Majority of the cases in the maxilla require some form of sinus grafting or procedures to increase ridge width. Innovations in the field of site preparation using Osseodensification principles and use of Hydraulics for sinus elevations have simplified the procedure of gaining bone volume in such clinical situations. Newer tools and materials have enabled clinicians to offer a minimally invasive transalveolar approach to sinus grafting compared to the lateral window approach. Densification drills have provided the clinicians a solution to optimize and expand the site for implant placement. This presentation will analyze various clinical situations needing ridge and sinus augmentation and provide predictable solutions to achieve high success rates.

Crestal Sinus Approach: A Hammerless Solution to the Indirect Sinus Lift Premium Member Content

Crestal Sinus Approach: A Hammerless Solution to the Indirect Sinus Lift
Posterior maxillary dental implant reconstruction for advanced alveorlar ridge atrophy has become possible through bone grafting procedures involving the maxillary sinus. This procedure involves augmentation of either the internal or external aspects of the sinus, or both. Bone grafting of the external aspect is performed with guided bone regeneration, using allogenic, autogenous, cortical, or corticocancellous grafts, as well as growth factors such as PRF as onlays with immediate or delayed implant placement. With the advent of new surgical techniques and equipment, sinus augmentation has become a predictable and efficient treatment. This presentation will focus on the internal, hammerless approach.

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials Premium Member Content

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials
Soft tissue root coverage microsurgery and pontic site enhancement are frequently utilized periodontal plastic surgery techniques to create an ideal restorative frame for teeth, pontics and implants. Tunnel, Semilunar, VISTA etc. are among the new age techniques highlighted in this growing area of periodontal microsurgery. New autologous tissue harvest techniques, Allograft ACDM and Bioactive Modifiers have all changed the way we are capable of managing soft tissue deficiencies and have assisted the clinician in improving the healing qualities of these minimally invasive techniques. This lecture will cover site preparation techniques for conventional dentistry as well as prior to and after implant placement.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery Premium Member Content

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach Premium Member Content

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach
In patients with terminal dentition esthetic and functional replacement is a necessary objective, but no longer a sufficient-objective: nowadays, due to the clinical and extra clinical characteristics of these patients, management of the therapy is as important as its conclusion. Respect of the principle of autonomy, reduction of treatment length, simplification of surgical procedures and prosthetic management of implant immediate loading are the cornerstones of this philosophy and are the object of this lecture.

Stem Cells in Dentistry Premium Member Content

Stem Cells in Dentistry
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, capable of renewing themselves, with the capacity to produce different cell types to regenerate missing tissues and treat diseases. Oral facial tissues have been identified as a source and therapeutic target for stem cells with clinical interest in dentistry. In this brief presentation, Dr Ana Paz presents stem cells and outlines the clinical applications of stem cells in dentistry. Although more clinical research in this topic is still needed, Dr Ana Paz believes that the main features of stem cells in the future of dentistry should be understood by clinicians.
