Course Description:
With the growing understanding of bone requirements for long term stability of dental implants, it becomes a biological imperative to establish adequate ridge dimensions around every implant. This places great impetus on the understanding of ridge augmentation procedures. With the plethora of materials and techniques for ridge preservation and augmentation, each claiming superiority over the others, it is indeed tough for the busy clinician to make informed decisions on which technique to choose.

This hands-on course will provide an algorithmic approach to ridge augmentation, on the basis of available soft tissue, bone, defect morphology and augmentation needs, making it easy for the clinician to decide on choice of techniques and materials, be it GBR, ridge split, or autologous grafting techniques

Course Description:
This course is designed for specialists and general practitioners who are interested in enhancing their bone grafting technique, especially for dental implant cases. Leukocyte- and Platelet-Rich Fibrin (L-PRF®) is derived from a small sample of the patient’s blood, taken at the point of care and processed to develop a fibrin clot. The fibrin clot is prepared into a membrane that is rich in platelets, growth factors and cytokines necessary to produce rapid healing and efficient regeneration.

This biomaterial is resilient, strong and pliable, making it easy to manipulate and receptive to suturing. It can be cut to size and is supple enough to adapt to many anatomical areas. It is adhesive in nature, making it an ideal carrier for bone graft material. Uses for the material include bulking graft material, replacing graft material, using it as a barrier membrane, placing it in extractions sites for increased healing, and using it in guided tissue regeneration procedures. It is also ideal for extraction/immediate placement cases.

In this course, you will learn the science behind L-PRF and how to incorporate it in your clinical practice. The hands-on training portion will teach you how to create the L-PRF membrane/plugs, and a live surgical procedure will demonstrate how L-PRF is easily incorporated into everyday practice.

Time:
8:00am - 12:00pm

Course Description:
In our implant practice we often have to deal with conservative root extractions, thin crestal bone and poor quality alveolar bone; especially in the posterior areas where it is often necessary to increase the height of the residual bone after tooth loss. The purpose of this course is to learn about a new conservative surgical approach to manage narrow ridges, poor quality bone, low bone height under the sinus and post extraction implants to achieve optimal primary stability and predictable implant outcomes, with very low morbidity for the patients.

This innovative technology called the Magnetic Mallet is a device based on a EU/US patent of invention in oral surgery that uses magnetism to generate a very impressive acceleration of the instrument tips that maximizes the forces applied to the bone (making the procedure fast and efficient) and in the meantime minimizes the inertia and discomfort for the patient. Such speed does not cause any bone heating therefore no need for irrigation during the surgical procedures!

Participants will learn how this Magnetic Dynamic Technology improves surgical procedures allowing to implement fast, minimally invasive, conservative and complete controlled protocols during extractions, osteotomies, crestal sinus lift, implant placement, ridge splitting, osseodensification AND bone modeling!

Course Description:
Full arch management has its challenges in itself not only from a surgical point of view but also under a prosthetic stand point. Diagnosis and treatment plan properly these cases play a pivotal role for the final successful outcome.

In fact, CBCT software analysis together with all the prosthetic evaluation needed prior the surgical day will be highlighted during the day, bringing then the focus of course specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures that can improve the predictability of the overall procedure. Which implant geometry to be used? Which is the rationale behind the choice of placing straight or tilted implants? How many implants are needed and where?

The discussion will also highlight how to obtain an accurate, passive and strength immediate provisional restoration, focusing then not only on the esthetic but also on the technical side. We are faced with a multitude of restorative option and during the day You will be taken through a full arch restoration and why we chose this particular restoration.

Today with the availability of different materials and technologies we can make sure we create a restoration that is not only hygiene friendly but retrievable and repairable.

A part of the day will highlights the protocols needed in communication between the surgeon, the restorative dentist and the laboratory. What are the expectations from the patient and the dental team and how can we meet these expectations? These are questions we have to ask our self for every full arch case we restore. This course is both for surgeons and restorative colleagues. Lab Technician are strongly encouraged to participate.

Course Objectives:
- How to diagnose and treatment plan a full arch case? Team Communication - Referral Strategies
- Focus on Indications and guidelines for edentulous arches and failing dentition patients
- CBCT Software Analysis - Which Information are providing Us?
- Surgical Strategies - Straight and Tilted Implants Rationale - Prosthetic Guided Surgery

- Technical Tips and Tricks - How to achieve Accuracy, Strength and Passivity on the Immediate Fixed Provisional Restoration on Implants
- New Cad Cam Technologies and Monolithic Materials: Is the future already here?
- Full Arch Digital Scanning: Is it already possible?

Time:

Course Description:
While the essential requirement is to provides our patients with the ultimate functional and aesthetic oral rehabilitation outcome, augmentation and grafting procedures become an indispensable part of modern dentistry and implantology. Grafting procedures include simple socket grafting cases to preserve the height and width of the bone for future implant placement, or more complex and challenging procedures such as bone reconstruction in a large 3D bony defect, lateral augmentation, vertical augmentation, sinus lifts, periodontal defects, etc.

The purpose of this course is to shed light on Biphasic Calcium Sulfate (BCS) Bone Graft Cement. A disruptive, innovative paradigm shift concept that can provide you, the clinician, the ability to confront even the most challenging augmentation cases very easily with minimally invasive surgical protocols. Accelerate and simplify your treatment flow and patient healing, regenerate patient's own bone, enhance healing, minimize patient's discomfort and bring the percent of complications to almost zero.

The course will focus on how we can predict the outcome during the surgery, application of the BCS and suturing technique, how to minimally manipulate the surgical flap, keep it under tension but minimally invasive (not tension free as we used to) as to eliminate the muscle influence — removing the muscle pull 'out of the equation' results in almost no complication, less discomfort to the patient, and higher surgical predictability.

Learning Objectives:

- How to minimally manipulate the surgical flap

- How to eliminate the Muscles influence on the stability of the graft

- Bone cement application, techniques & protocols

- Suturing & flap closure technique

- How to predict outcome during the surgery
