Course Description:
Today, implant dentistry has achieved major advances toward simplifying oral rehabilitation with implant-supported prosthesis. The introduction of short and extra-short implants may have decreased the need for advanced bone augmentation surgeries in the treatment of severely atrophied alveolar bone. In these situations, the surgeon is working in the vicinity of critical anatomical structures like the inferior alveolar nerve, mentonian nerve, Schneiderian membrane, and floor of the nasal cavity.

Learning Objectives:
• Treatment planning following biological parameters
• Short and extra-short implants: surgical and prosthodontic considerations
• How to drill bone close to the inferior alveolar nerve and Schneiderian membrane
• Assessing the limit for short and extra-short implants

Time:

Course Description:
Augmentation surgical procedures that combine implant placements have become an integral part of modern dentistry.

Appropriate placement of the implants according to the prosthetic requirements is essential for rehabilitative success. Therefore, clinicians are often required to perform augmentation procedures in order to be able to provide a solution.

The diversity and complexity of bone lesions present challenges to clinicians, especially with existing bone substitutes marketed as granules, pastes, or blocks, which bring with them the need for stabilization by using membranes and fixating tools. As a consequence, high skill level is required as well as a long treatment time.

To facilitate these operations, bone substitute companies are engaged in a constant search for the ultimate matrix that can bond their products, for preventing particle migration and obtaining the stability of the bone graft.

Use of cement bone grafts in the orthopedic medical field is state of the art , and have existed for years. However, in the dental field, the use of bone grafts cements is relatively unfamiliar. In the modern augmentation procedure handling ,outcome and cost effectiveness are the essential requirements which no clinician should overlook . The evolution of dental bone graft cement simplifying and enhancing our augmentation abilities, while paving the future of the maxillofacial and dental augmentation field.

Learning Objectives:
• Overview of basic biological and physiological mechanisms of bone formation and repair.
• Rationale for bone grafting procedures and graft selection.
• Commonly used bone grafting techniques in clinical practice
• Basic criteria and techniques to obtain and enhance the volume and predictability of bone formation in the grafted site.
• Scientific Rationales, and practical ways to incorporate bone graft cements in our daily practice
• Methods and techniques for using bone graft cements in a diversity of indications
• How to deal with external root resorption cases, fractured teeth and fractured implants

Time:
2:00pm - 6:00pm

Course Description:
This course was designed to help the dental team develop verbal and non-verbal communication skills, patient interaction techniques, and case presentation approaches that can help them be successful when delivering exceptional patient consultations and case presentations that, ultimately, can be used to increase case acceptance. When dental team members build unique and trusting relationships with patients, they will be more likely to share their personal feelings, goals, and concerns about their oral health and appearance. This will then enable the dental team to offer and provide the treatments that will satisfy their needs and wants.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the importance of carefully selecting word choices and scripting when talking with patients
• Discuss how non-verbal communication and environmental factors in the practice affect the patient experience
• Explain the significance of patient transfers among the dental team and that patient experience
• Asking open ended questions to gather information, engage the patient and promote patient education
• Identify Communication roles within the practice

Course Description:
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes, while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore become cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition esthetic outcomes, and treatment plan accordingly, provided that preservation of the surrounding hard and soft tissues associated with an immediate post-extraction socket implant to replace a non-restorable tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. Several studies have documented the biologic and esthetic benefits of bone graft containment with either a custom healing abutment or provisional restoration. Esthetic complications increase in patients with a thin periodontal phenotype; therefore, an additional surgical intervention may be necessary to enhance the surrounding soft tissue architecture before, during, or after the implant placement.

This course will highlight a new approach: the Surgical Veneer Grafting, a combination of bone graft and a sub epithelial connective tissue graft to overbuilding the socket site and achieve a sustainable and predictable esthetic outcomes especially in thin gingival thickness patient.

This course is designed for any clinician managing extraction sites and who places implants and is the first in our series on implant site development and essential bone grafting. The hands-on portion will focus on minimally invasive extraction, bone and connective tissue grafting techniques as well as immediate implant placement. Participants will practice on Pig Jaws.
