Summary:

Dental implant, periodontal , and oral surgical procedures or any potentially hemorrhagic procedures put the practitioner and staff at risk for exposure to blood-borne viruses (eg, AIDS, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C), as well as saliva and blood-transmitted pathogens (eg, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Staphyloccus, Streptococcus, cytomegalovirus). There are also a number of viruses that may infect the upper respiratory tract. In these cases, infections may be transmitted through direct contact with blood or saliva, droplets, aerosols, and possibly by accidental inoculation (parenteral exposure) from sharp instruments. This can be minimized by using infection-control measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles
The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.

Surgical and Orthodontic Management of Impacted Maxillary Canines

Surgical and Orthodontic Management of Impacted Maxillary Canines
Although the mechanical management of impacted teeth is a routine task for most orthodontists, certain impactions can be frustrating, and the esthetic outcome can be unpredictable if the surgeon uncovers the impacted tooth improperly. When referring a patient to have an impacted toothuncovered,theorthodontist might assume incorrectly that the surgeon knows which surgical procedure to use. However, if not instructed properly, the surgeon could select an inappropriate technique, leaving the orthodontist with…

"All on X" Therapies & The Digital Evolution
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 in needed prior to the surgical day will be highlighted, bringing then the focus of the presentation specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures that can improve the predictability of the overall procedure. Which implant geometries are to be used? Which is the rationale behind the choice of placing straight or tilted implants? How many implants are needed and where? Abutment selection? Space requirements? Material selection? Bone quality issues and how to best incorporate new digital software and planning tools.

Full Arch Immediate Loading Using Pterygoid Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Full Arch Immediate Loading Using Pterygoid Implants - Part 1 of 2
Non-grafting alternatives for the rehabilitation of the Atrophic Maxilla is a growing arena in our implant patient population. The Intermaxillary Surgical Protocol for Zygomatic Implants and its modification to Extramaxillary techniques has been a huge advantage in the treatment of these advanced maxillary atrophy patient cases. Anatomical and X-Ray interpretation connected with the placement of Zygomatic Implants will be reviewed in great detail. Patient selection and Treatment Planning as well as Pre-Operation Patient’s Medical Condition Assessment etc. is the foundational knowledge required for treatment of these individuals. The surgical procedure and prosthetic rehabilitation aspects as well as impressions and the laboratory work will also be further highlighted.

Fully Guided with Root Membrane Technique Premium Member Content

Fully Guided with Root Membrane Technique
Loss of blood supply derived from the periodontal ligament (PDL) has been identified as a major etiologic factor for ridge resorption. Animal studies and case reports provide proof-of-principle data on the feasibility of immediate implant placement in proximity to a retained root fragment for the strategic preservation of the natural tooth apparatus. This novel concept relies on the preservation of PDL, buccal bone and soft tissue esthetics via selective preservation of the buccal portion of the root and PDL which can lead to predictable and sustainable clinical stability of immediately placed and loaded implants.

The Importance of Facially Driven Smile Design in Modern Comprehensive Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Importance of Facially Driven Smile Design in Modern Comprehensive Dentistry
Modern dentistry is comprehensive, comprehensive dentistry is interdisciplinary, interdisciplinary dentistry is facially driven, Facially Driven dentistry starts with Smile Design. Facially Driven Natural looking Smile Design is the starting point of modern restorative dentistry and the key to improve diagnosis and decision making. The importance of understanding how to consistently create adequate smile designs in harmony with faces is underrated in dentistry and the notion that this topic is under control is overrated. We don’t know what we don’t know. The aim of this lecture is to highlight the challenges, evolution, and the important concepts to become a great smile designer and also how to use technology to streamline the process and deliver naturally beautiful healthy smiles consistently.

Surgical Management of Third Molars

Surgical Management of Third Molars
Removal of third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, continue to be prevalent in our society. Indications for removal vary from pericoronal infections to orthodontic treatment. Several factors such as age, position of the tooth and affected jaw can dictate the surgical technique. Proper diagnosis and management will be covered at length as well as impaction classification systems, value of imaging, instrumentation and surgical approaches. Post operative management and methods to recognize, avoid and treat potential complications will also be discussed.
