The Digital Implant – Restorative Connection in the Anterior Esthetic Zone

The fully digitized protocol that will be presented in this lecture, will emphasize the importance of correct communication, which will improve the esthetic diagnosis and the predictability of the implant-based anterior aesthetic restoration

Modern techniques and materials can be useless if the final outcome does not live up to the patient’s esthetic expectations. It has always been a challenge to create a smile design, where the final result can be precisely predicted from day one. In some cases, the dentists do build this design directly in the patient’s mouth. However, some leave it to the ceramist that they work with. Most importantly, however, this smile design needs to match the patient’s functional, biological and emotional needs. To obtain such results, especially when implants are involved, we need very well communicated, interdisciplinary teamwork. Every member of the team (including the specialist, lab technicians and the patient) should be aware of the treatment planning and the anticipated end result, right from the start.

Biological approach to dental implantology: An evidence based choice

This lecture aims to provide insights into the important evidence-based choices made during the development and the clinical impact of this unique implant, based on clinical indications and cases.

The development of the V3 implant focused on the design of the conical connection and the titanium grade of all components, providing more bone where it matters most. The V3 has a unique triangular neck design, resulting in minimal cortical bone compression, though ensuring excellent primary stability. This triangular shape also results in narrow chambers around the implant, allowing blood pooling and blood clot formation, thereby maintaining crestal bone vitality and enabling new bone growth. Placing the implant slightly sub-crestal even enhances more bone growth in these critical crestal bone areas. Sub-crestal placement, however, requires a very tight connection between implant and abutment, protecting the crestal bone from bacterial infiltration or micro-movement of the abutment.

Oral biofilm and its management in professional prophylaxis

Oral biofilm and its management in professional prophylaxis

In the era of mini-invasiveness also in dentistry, specifically for what concerns the Non-surgical periodontal therapy, you are trying to veer towards greater compliance fabrics, hard and soft. Our new therapeutic approach marries Flemming's proposal that in 2012, through Air Polishing Therapy, therapy based on the use of powders allow abrasiveness, proposes the removal of biofilm, the main proponent of oral diseases,in an atraumatic manner.This type of approach makes treatment, motivation and more precise and effective patient's instruction.The diagnostic aspect represents an essential basis from which to start. To it is It is necessary to combine a detailed knowledge of the mechanisms that contribute to extrusion. To isolate a periodontal pathological picture, which can be solved effectively by working within a cohesive team, prepared and well organized. During this webinar the diagnostic, etiopathogenetic, ergonomic, preventive and therapeutic aspects will be addressed.

Guided bone regeneration: Biomaterial and surgical techniques for a success aesthetic implant reconstruction

Bone resorption is a process that follows after patient loses teeth, especially in anterior maxilla.

Bone resorption is a process that follows after patient loses teeth, especially in anterior maxilla. Bone loss is even more when combined with a severe pathology, such as periodontitis or large apical lesions. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) in implant dentistry is essential for the reconstruction of bone volume to support implants and achieve aesthetic results. Characteristic of bone graft materials differ significantly in terms of their biochemical properties, such as resorption rate, volume stability and new bone formation. The webinar will discuss GBR principles, bone substitutes & resorbable membranes as well as surgical techniques for long-term success of implant treatment.

Novel low-dose protocols for 3D imaging in oral and maxillofacial radiology: a game changer?

The introduction of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has created new diagnostic possibilities in dental medicine.

Although computerised tomography (CT) has been available for quite some time, its use in dentistry has always been limited because of cost, access, and radiation. Nevertheless, for three-dimensional (3D) imaging using CBCT, there is still considerable ambiguity in offering a decisive suggestion to routinely use this technique for diagnostic procedures. The main reason for this is that the radiation dose of CBCT, despite being lower than that of conventional CT, negates routine clinical usage, when one applies the principle of as low as reasonable achievable (ALARA). Recently, low-dose protocols have been recommended to assist practitioners in dose optimisation. However, in practice, dentists are likely to depend on the manufacturers‘ instructions on appropriate exposure settings, so it is encouraging that new low-dose protocols have also been developed by manufacturers. While low-dose protocols for CBCT devices are possible and even marketed today by many brands available, there is no or only limited evidence to demonstrate their diagnostic quality and acceptability for diagnostic imaging in various disciplines of dental medicine. This lecture will focus on the potential of low-dose protocols with novel CBCT devices, their potential implementation into daily practice, and future developments in diagnostic imaging in the oral and maxillofacial region.

Update Bone Ring Technique: New science and clinical studies

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.

Sex, Drugs & Oral Cancer™

Sex, Drugs & Oral Cancer™

Due to a recent rise in HPV, oral cancer rates have continued to rise and are now affecting patients that we never thought were at risk. This webinar will provide oral cancer education and proper protocols for early discovery to save lives.

Recent trends in oral cancer have heightened the importance of a proper oral cancer screening protocol for all medical and dental professionals. Oral Cancer has risen each of the past seven years, and the deforming disease is now affecting patients with no traditional risk factors. Due to a 225% increase in HPV related oropharyngeal cancers, oral cancer is occurring in younger populations, changing the perception of who to screen. With the need for a new oral cancer screening protocol, adjunctive screening options will be covered in detail. This course will introduce recent and emerging technologies for early discovery of oral cancer, including fluorescence technology and quantitative cytology along with the importance of proper implementation. Clinical examples of these procedures will also be provided.
