CBCT as an Interdisciplinary Diagnostic and Treatment Planning Tool

Description:
The era of in-office Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has unequivocally transformed interdisciplinary dentofacial therapy (IDT). While in-office CBCT imaging may be the latest technological breakthrough enhancing opportunities for treatment planning, it is diagnosis that has remained the constant variable critical for predictable patient outcomes. In the “team-approach” context, surgical specialists are expanding the boundaries of reconstructive surgery and are often called upon to treat more complex bone deformities in patients seeking dentofacial and/or craniofacial rehabilitation. Faced with today’s patient demands, the need for predictable surgical strategies is of even greater importance to ensure successful outcomes. This presentation will discuss and demonstrate the utilization of CBCT imaging from the perspective and scope of a periodontist and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Treatment planning, critical thinking skills and surgical execution of cases demonstrating complex dentoalveolar bone reconstruction and craniofacial deformities will be presented demonstrating how this paradigm shift has expanded capabilities and predictability to treat demanding cases.

The Biomimetic Approach to Saving Teeth: Minimally Invasive Restorations and Periodontal Surgery
Stress reduced composite restorations now play a significant role in minimally invasive restorative dentistry. When combined with micro-periodontal surgical grafting techniques to alter gingival levels these procedures save teeth and warrant further consideration in our daily treatment. Our ability to minimize tooth reduction during tooth preparation and still maintain a strength of material and of bonding on previously exposed root surfaces as well as endodontically treated teeth is the future of a truly biomimetic approach. This presentation highlights this biomimetic approach to treatment and showcases the clinicians ability to provide long term management of both function and esthetics. It should open our eyes to the potential of maintaining the dentition of our patients rather than crown or implant replacement.

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities Premium Member Content

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

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.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was the evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant disease. A search of PubMed and a hand search of articles related to peri-implant diseases were conducted up to August 2013. A summary of the current methods for the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, its potential risk factors, and a flow chart to guide the clinical management of these conditions are presented.
