Management of Periodontal Complications: Science vs. Hype

Description:
The dental implant therapy has evolved both in implant surface and design. The reason for the initial crestal bone loss has been proven and the risks of having a peri-implantitis have increased due to the early exposure of roughened surface. The prevalence of peri-implantitis is at a range of 28 to 56%. The role of dental professionals nowadays is to know how to interpret the signs of inflammation and establish the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, which is the most challenging, and be able to treat it properly since this is becoming a more needed therapy.

Great lecture, thank you. So is the water laser more effective in treating peri-implantitis than chemical or mechanical method? Joey

Diagnosis, Planning, & Treatment of Altered Passive Eruption; From a Periodontists Perspective
This presentation will teach how to diagnose cases of altered passive eruption based on the radiographic evaluation (with periapical rx and CBCT) and how to plan and document a surgical procedure aimed to ‘uncover’ the beautiful and natural hidden enamel. In a world where esthetics is becoming more and more a concern a simple periodontal plastic surgical procedure can re-establish esthetic and balance to the patients affected by this condition.

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities Premium Member Content

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities
Socket Shield Technique is a concept in implant dentistry that utilizes the partial extraction therapy principles, with the goal of preserving the hard and soft tissues around the dental implants. It has been reported to be a very predictable therapy so far. The proper case selection is crucial for the success of the technique. In fact, it is very technique sensitive and requires an advanced level in implant dentistry. Although the technique has a high overall success rate, but long term studies and high evidence level researches are needed to support the proof of principle available. This presentation will discuss and review the "myths & realities" of the new Socket Shield Technique or "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapy) concept.

Novel Surgical BioSealing & Original BioProfiling Techniques - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Novel Surgical BioSealing & Original BioProfiling Techniques - Part 1 of 2
Biphosphonates Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw is one of the tragedies affecting our patients each time more often representing a new challenge in what we like to call human dentistry. This severe and unpredictable outcome can evolve from something as simple as a tooth extraction or simply an implant placement. In this presentation the authors display one of the first BRONJ cases in the world treated with the surgical biosealing technique using the PRGF ENDORET graft. Understanding the BIOlogy behind the healing process has been as much surprising as useful in trying to alleviate our patients pain and improve their quality of life. This video presents a novel technique to the post-extraction site based upon taking care of the overall tissue support from the bone level and we will discuss treatment planning, options and limitations with this technique/protocol.

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.

Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation: Optimizing Esthetic Results for the Restorative Dentist
Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition
Esthetic dentistry demands more of clinicians than just simeple knowledge of tooth anatomy and the proper dimensions of teeth. Dentists must also know and understand the proper positions of the teeth in relation to the gingiva, the lips, and entire face. Esthetic measurements are not the only important factors. Other considerations need to include the patient's phonetics and function. A example of a situation where this knowledge and awareness is imperative is in the case of the worn dentition (eg, attrition, abrasion, etc). This article addresses a simple case of how a patients esthetics have been compromised as a result of erosion as well as parafunctional activity (toothbrush abrasion) and how the patient was eventually restored with an interdisciplinary approach between the restorative dentist and the periodontal surgeon.

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog
Dental implant surface technology has evolved from a relatively smooth machined implant surface for osseointegration to more roughened osteoconductive surfaces. Recent studies suggest that peri-implant soft tissue inflammation with progressive bone loss (ie peri-implantitis) is becoming a prevalent condition. One possibility that could explain sucha a finding is that more bacterial plaque forms on the roughened implant and abutment surfaces, which may result in the peri-implant inflammation if the soft tissues. This study compared 36 tissue-level implants with a machined transmucosal collar to 36 implants with a relatively roughened transmucosal surface in the dog. The results demonstrated that the connective tissue contact was similar between the two implant types but that the junctional epithelium and biologic width dimensions were greater around the implants with the machined collars...
