SOLD OUT
A 1-Day Hands-On Course
August 10, 2018
NYU College of Dentistry, New York


Presented by:
Dr. Howard Gluckman

Course Location:
NYU College of Dentistry
345 E. 24th Street 1W (corner of First Avenue)
New York, NY, 10010

Cost:
$1995.00

CE Credits:
8 Credit Hours (AGD PACE Approve Provider)

Time:
8:00am - 5:00pm

Course Description:
The key to successful implant dentistry is the ability of the clinician to provide adequate volume and quality of bone to the recipient site. This requires a thorough and precise diagnostic evaluation utilizing bone sounding, PA films and CBCT 3D software.

Once the volume of the deficiency has been properly registered the appropriate bone grafting technique can then be selected. The desire is to utilize the least invasive and most conservative techniques needed to get the required results.

Extraction Socket Grafting, GBR, Onlay Block Grafting, Ridge Splitting and Expansion will be featured. The utilization and importance of bioactive modifiers such as PRF, PRGF, and autologous fibrin membranes will be highlighted.

The products available today for Bone Augmentation including, allograft and xenograft particulate bone, various membranes, bone tacks, fixation screws, BMP-2, titanium mesh and various membranes will be clarified as to their effectiveness in each procedure.

This hands-on course will highlight the 4 most utilized bone graft procedures in clinical practice which involve the socket graft and 3 different ridge augmentation techniques.

It will teach in detail and simplify the process of site evaluation, critical anatomy, flap design, harvest techniques, suturing and the required armamentarium to perform these techniques.

All necessary materials will be made available to each attendee; Bone models, surgical instruments, grafting materials and fixation screws.

This program will cover site preparation techniques prior to and at the time of implant placement.

Learning Objectives:
•To learn basic Surgical Anatomy and Incision Techniques in Hard Tissue Surgery

•To apply 5 commonly used bone grafting techniques in clinical practice

•To manage the “deficient” site through various and innovative augmentation techniques


Development of the hard tissues require an understanding and specific skill set which includes:

•Autogeneous or Allograft Onlay Bone Blocks

•Allograft Bone Particulate Grafts and GBR

•Utilization and fixation of Collagen Membranes

•Ridge Splitting or Expansion Techniques

A 1-Day Hands-On Course
August 10, 2018
NYU College of Dentistry, New York


Presented by:
Dr. Maurice Salama

Course Location:
NYU College of Dentistry
345 E. 24th Street 1W (corner of First Avenue)
New York, NY, 10010

Cost:
$1995.00

CE Credits:
8 Credit Hours (AGD PACE Approve Provider)

Time:
8:00am - 5:00pm

Course Description:
Dental health and esthetics is dependent on specifically defined relationships between the soft tissue, the teeth or implants, and the underlying osseous scaffold. A critical soft tissue dimension is required for long-term predictable support of the gingival margin, crestal bone and restorative esthetics.

Part and parcel of a thorough dental evaluation today is to determine that gingival phenotype of the individual. Thickness of the gingiva, zone of attached tissue and tissue color all play important roles in developing the long-term health and esthetics in dental treatment of any kind. In addition, the exact determination of the location of the underlying bone acts as a prognostic indicator of future soft tissue levels.

This course will highlight the 3 most utilized soft tissue procedures in clinical practice, the free gingival graft FGG, ridge augmentation for pontic sites and minimally invasive root coverage procedures for CTG “tunnel/VISTA approaches”.

It will teach IN DETAIL and simplify the process of site evaluation, critical anatomy, flap management and minimally invasive armamentarium.

Soft tissue grafting techniques, new regenerative materials and bioactivators will be highlighted. The expanding role of allograft materials (Alloderm, Dermis, Oraderm) and when to utilize them will be suggested. The ability of these combined protocols to alter the soft tissue profile around natural teeth, implants, edentulous ridges, as well as to support facial soft tissue structures will be reviewed as to its critical role in “Complete Esthetics”.

This hands-on portion of the course will highlight in detail and simplify the process of autologous harvest techniques, critical anatomy, flap design, microsurgical armamentarium and critical suturing materials/methods.

All necessary materials will be made available to each attendee; including gowns, masks, gloves, headlamps, microsurgical instruments, graft and suture materials.

Learning Objectives:
To learn basic surgical anatomy and incision techniques in soft tissue surgery
To apply three commonly used soft tissue grafting techniques in clinical practice
To learn modified suturing methods to secure flaps and grafts

Hands-On Content to be covered in DETAIL:

- Ridge Augmentation for pontic and implant sites
- Roll techniques
- Inlay pouch technique
- Onlay technique

- Root coverage procedures
- Connective tissue grafts – CTG
- Free Gingival tissue grafts - FGG
- Semi-lunar grafts
- Tunnel techniques
- VISTA
