Live Webinar水雷射在牙周再生與植牙的進階應用 ” Advanced applications of Waterlase in periodontal regeneration & implant dentistry”
Jerry C. Lin DDS, DMSc
Laser-assisted periodontal therapy & applications in implant dentistry Conventional root planing relies on the tactile feedback. However residual calculus has been an issue, which may limit the efficacy. Utilizing the Er,Cr:YSGG dental laser to open up the pockets enables the visibility, which will optimize the treatment outcomes. The first obstacle of periodontal regeneration is to remove the granulation completely. The Er,Cr:YSGG dental laser has its advantages of non-touching blasting effects and focal spot laser beams, making it easier to debride the periodontal defects. In implant dentistry, laser can be applied in treating peri-implantitis through decontaminating the implant surface and soft tissue gingivectomy. Peri-implant bone regeneration can be achieved via laser decontamination and peri-implant GBR. The laser de-epithelialized autogeneous gingival grafts can be successfully used for treating gingival recession, for achieving soft tissue augmentation around implants and for
Live WebinarSo, you think oral health doesn’t matter? Standardizing global oral health data
Dr. Tom Broomhead, Dr. Dany Daou, Prof. Sarah Baker, Prof. George Tsakos, Prof. David M. Williams
Standardized global oral health data are limited. Oral health data are rarely integrated into national disease surveillance, particularly in low-and middle-income countries. There is an urgent need to assess the true impact of oral diseases and develop strategies to abate them in order to improve health outcomes in a measurable way.
Live WebinarImplant Placement and Loading Protocols in Partially Edentulous Patients: Findings from the 6th ITI Consensus Conference
Dr. Adam Hamilton
Implant placement protocols have been extensively research and reviewed in an effort to determine the most efficient and predictable pathway for implant therapy following tooth extraction. The timing of implant placement is directly linked to physiological process of wound healing and ridge alterations following tooth extraction. Similarly implant loading protocols have been evaluated to determine when is the safest time to restore an implant and provide occlusal loading. Similar physiological processes also dictate the osseointegration process and concepts related to primary and secondary implant stability. However, it is imperative to understand the relationship between implant placement and loading protocols.
