Clinical benefits of a novel non-resorbable membrane: Experiences with permamem® in guided bone regeneration

The webinar focuses on a new high-density PTFE membrane. Prof. Windisch will present his first hand clinical experiences as well as the handling properties and benefits of this novel membrane.

Several reconstructive surgical methods are suggested in literature to rebuild the deficient alveolar ridge, such as transplantation of autogenous bone blocks, distraction osteogenesis as well as guided bone regeneration (GBR). Among these, GBR is documented to have the widest field of indication in terms of defect morphology.

The essence of GBR is to maintain a secluded space under a barrier membrane preventing epithelial soft tissue migration to stabilize blood clot formation with any particulate auto- or xenografts. The ultimate prerequisite for prevention of epithelial ingrowth is the long term membrane barrier function. Especially when utilizing nonresorbable membranes, primary intention wound healing as a result of a surgical approach avoiding membrane exposure is a key factor for successful hard tissue reconstruction.

Recently a new generation of nonresorbable polytetrafluoroethylene membranes ( high-density PTFE) has been introduced, which is characterized by improved tissue compatibility and resistance against postoperative infections in case of membrane exposure compared to ePTFE and nPTFE membranes.

In this webinar, GBR procedures with different types of nonresorbable membranes will be addressed, highlighting the benefits and handling properties of a new high-density PTFE membrane (botiss permamem®).

Update Bone Ring Technique: New science and clinical studies

Dr. Emre Benlidayi, Dr. Orcan Yüksel

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.

How to simplify the clinical use of MTA: the StyleItaliano Endodontics Philosophy.

During the webinar different clinical techniques about correct use of MTA for the repair of iatrogenic errors and a step by step will be presented. Additionally, tips for a feasible and repeatable approach following SIE Philosophy will also be shared.

MTA is probably the most researched material in dentistry, outcomes are always great, and it is considered the ideal material for sealing the pathways of communication between the root canal system and its surrounding tissues. Many clinical investigations have been performed evaluating MTA for each one of the above-mentioned applications however, does the application of a repeatable method of MTA really exist? Which sequence, device and protocol are suggested?

The New Standard of Care in Oral Hygiene

Dr. James Kouzoukian

The New Standard of Care in Oral Hygiene

Specific changes must be made to the oral hygiene protocols used in our dental practices in order to be in compliance with the new standard of care in dentistry.

How do patients maintain a healthy dentition and protect an investment in dental prosthetics? Current research indicates that our old standbys are no longer considered effective to maintain implants and protect them against peri-implantitis, maintain a post surgical result in periodontal treatment and effectively treat a non-surgical periodontal case. Our new standards and their dentolegal considerations will be discussed. The topic and material contained in this seminar will be of interest to dentists as well as hygienists.

Overcoming extreme endo-restorative isolation challenges using off-label methods and materials

The heavy marketing and ever-increasing popularity of dental implants challenges the rationale for complex endodontic procedures. Without creative and time-tested methods for managing difficult endodontic cases, this challenge would go unanswered. The inability to isolate is frequently cited as the reason for removing teeth that might otherwise be treatable. Using high-magnification clinical videos, the webinar... View Article

The heavy marketing and ever-increasing popularity of dental implants challenges the rationale for complex endodontic procedures. Without creative and time-tested methods for managing difficult endodontic cases, this challenge would go unanswered. The inability to isolate is frequently cited as the reason for removing teeth that might otherwise be treatable. Using high-magnification clinical videos, the webinar will present a variety of off-label methods using common dental devices, materials and instruments in uncommon ways to isolate teeth under the most challenging of circumstances. This will help to achieve superior endodontic results, while allowing patients to retain their natural dentition. We're endodontists and endo-savvy dentists; we still save teeth….

Modern Composites: Versatile, minimal invasive, esthetic and durable. How to get the most of them.

The lecture will give guidelines regarding the choice of materials, explain different systems and show the advantages of systems like the Tetric N-Line, show new techniques with composites in the anterior region as well as in the posterior, present a simplified layering concept and discuss the limitations of them. It will also give insights to master the form in highly demanding clinical cases, fully documented, with step by step procedures.

Try to answer this question honestly: If you will need a restoration in your mouth, which characteristics should fulfil a material? I am sure your answer will be straight away: Simple, minimal invasive, aesthetic and durable. In the posterior region, we can summarize the state of the art as what I call “the combined Bulk Fill technique”, which means the combination of a flowable bulk fill composite and a mouldable composite. Traditionally, flowable bulk fill composites are very translucent and make the esthetic integration difficult, especially for bigger cavities. Newly developed materials like Tetric N-Flow bulk fill represent a major advantage to the older materials since the change of opacity after curing make the material close dentin in opacity. Probably the use of the universal bondings and the understanding in focusing on adaptation instead of layering close the topic. In the anterior region, the difference of the value vs A-D systems probably is the first that clinicians need to understand. Once this is done, the correct use of dentin, universal and enamel shades need to be mastered. Tetric N-Ceram is one of the examples of a very efficient and versatile system for most of the indications. The wide range of colors, but at the same time simple philosophy, make it very easy to use. Finally, the clinician should focus on mastering the form, texture and emergence profile of natural teeth.

Full arch rehabilitation: customize treatment plans according to the patient

The goal of this webinar is to address the decision making process in order to provide the ideal treatment plan for full arch rehabilitation patients

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.

Working together to enhance patients’ self care

Tim Newton Professor of Psychology as Applied to Dentistry

Working together to enhance patients’ self care

Oral health is critically dependent on the behaviour of individuals, yet behaviour change can be challenging.

Psychologists have identified those interventions that are most likely to be effective in changing a patient’s behaviour. Drawing together a large body of research, Michie et al (2011) developed a model of behaviour change which seeks to identify the core elements of successful approaches. The COM-B model suggests that behaviour change occurs when there is Capability, Opportunity and Motivation. Capability refers to both the physical and psychological skills to perform the behaviour, Opportunity has physical components (e.g. access to resources) and social environment aspects (e.g. exposure to ideas) such that the person feels able to undertake the new behaviour, finally Motivation (M) refers to the person’s conscious (e.g. planning and decision making) and automatic (e.g. innate drives, emotional reactions, habits) processes said to underline the emission of any behaviour. In my talk I will look at each component in turn, drawing on the published literature to outline simple and brief ways that the dental team can enhance patients’ Capability, Opportunities and Motivation to change their oral health related behaviour. Participants will learn:
  • Psychological theory underpinning behavior change interventions
  • Examples of published research applying the principles of psychological theory to behavior change
  • An overview of the application of behavior change methods in oral healthcare settings
  • The implementation of the principles to their own practice
