Molar-Incisor-Hypomineralization – From Science to Practice

- Know the case definition of MIH - Be able to grade and stage MIH cases and lesions - Deduce treatment options for different MIH lesions

Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) is a highly prevalent enamel developmental disorder. The lecture will systematically present how to detect and diagnose, to stage and grade MIH, and to deduce appropriate treatment options based on scientific evidence.

The whys, wherefores and hows of replacing single missing tooth in the esthetic zone: strategies for implant supported crowns on different clinical indications.

In this webinar single tooth replacement in the esthetic zone will be covered. Different clinical situations will be described and according to indications appropriate approaches are going to be presented and discussed on clinical cases.

There are several challenging factors inherent on replacing a missing incisor in the esthetic zone. Decrease in bone and soft tissue volume, subsequent to tooth loss, is one of the most important of these factors. When the treatment option is an implant supported crown, adequate tissue volume becomes a prerequisite for optimum esthetic outcome. There are several treatment plan options available for the clinician to decide when a tooth is condemned to extraction. Immediate implant placement would be the first option in order to decrease treatment time and also to preserve tissue volume and contours. However, there are limitations for immediate implant placement.  Socket preservation could be another option for the management of fresh extraction sockets. If the tooth was lost certain time ago and ridge resorption has already been occurred then the clinician should consider augmentation techniques in order to obtain sufficient hard and soft tissue volume for pleasing esthetic results. There are several challenging factors inherent on  replacing a missing incisor in the esthetic zone. In this webinar single tooth replacement in the esthetic zone will be covered. Different clinical situations will be described and according to indications appropriate approaches are going to be presented and discussed on clinical cases. key words: immediate implantation, single tooth replacement, esthetic zone, socket preservation, site development, socket shield, dental  webinar

MIH in 2019

Patrick Rouas

MIH in 2019

A good knowledge of MIH will enable better care. But which strategy the practitioner should follow? Which prevention agents or dental materials should we choose? What knacks can be used in each step of treatment?

Nowadays, dental practitioners seem to be more and more confronted with molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH). This anomaly of enamel can cause some important deteriorations of first permanent molars and aesthetic problems on permanent incisors. An effective care must include early diagnosis, caries prevention of these fragile teeth, desensitizing, potential restorations and monitoring. If extraction is needed, orthodontia can help practitioners. Through a review of scientific publications and different case reports from our exercising, we’ll describe the care strategies of patients with MIH.

Celiac Disease, Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, and Your Dental Patients

Melissa Ing D.M.D., Associate Professor

Celiac Disease, Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, and Your Dental Patients

Nearly 3 million people in the United States have Celiac Disease (CD) with many of these people remaining undiagnosed due to poor understanding of the disease. 

CD presents with a wide range of symptoms, complicating the diagnosis.  In general, health professionals are lacking in CD knowledge and as a result are slow to diagnose.  Celiac patients sustain damage to the small intestines as well as a possible myriad of other problems.  If the condition worsens, although rare, it can lead to cancer. Dental professionals can play a large role in detecting CD as well as other gluten disorders  (non-Celiac gluten sensitivity) for their patients if they learn to recognize the symptoms and oral manifestations.  This lecture will explain how gluten affects those with CD and gluten disorders.  Some of the latest research done at Tufts School of Dental Medicine will be presented as well.   Arming the dental team with better awareness of both CD and gluten disorders can result in prompt referrals for diagnosis and subsequent treatment options. Participants will learn:
  • Identify oral manifestations and symptoms of CD and gluten disorders to assist in prompt referrals of patients to primary care providers.
  • Participate with interdisciplinary teams in medicine and nutrition for information integration.
  • Apply knowledge about poorly understood CD and gluten disorders to create safer clinical environment protocols in dental offices.

Full arch rehabilitation: customize treatment plans according to the patient

This dental webinar will focus on surgical techniques for full arch rehabilitation with dental implants. On a more regular basis, we must perform treatment plans customised to patient features.

Therefore, the time when we were offering the same solution to everyone is over. It is necessary to include new treatment approaches such as DSD or new predictable tools, even in full mouth cases, in order to achieve a better outcome. A critical analysis of the most recent data regarding the various surgical procedures will be presented in order to guide the clinician in making the best choice for each clinical situation.

Update Bone Ring Technique: New science and clinical studies

Bone Ring Technique: The use of autologous or allogenic bone for simultaneous augmentation and implant placement. The webinar discusses the (dis)advantage of both materials through histological evaluations and new clinical studies

Bone Ring Technique was originally described as a one-stage procedure for vertical augmentation, in which an autogenous block bone graft is stabilized with a simultaneously inserted dental implant. Harvesting of bone from symphysis using a trephine appears to be safe and results in minimal morbidity. Autogenous bone used in Bone Ring Technique is accompanied by the fracture risk during removal or implant placement and usual donor site morbidities. The  allogenic bone ring is a pre-fabricated graft which allows bone augmentation and implant placement in a one-stage procedure. The main benefit of allogenic bone ring is the avoidance of harvesting of autogenous bone. However there is not enough data in the literature about the success of this graft material. The webinar will address the remodeling process of autogenous and allograft bone rings based on histological evaluations and histomorphometric analysis in an experimental animal model. In addition, the use of autogenous and allograft bone rings in vertical alveolar augmentation and sinus augmentation will be discussed in clinical cases.
