Topic: Minimizing Dental Implant Complications with 3D Digital Planning

Technology has changed a great deal over the last few decades in many areas, including the planning and delivery of dental implant care. It is clear that paradigms based upon old technology are due for reassessment in the light of the new technology that offers the ability to enhance our results and lower the risk of complications.

•To provide an historical perspective of dental implant treatment planning
•To provide a current assessment of dental implant treatment planning technology
•To suggest ways to make significant improvements in how we currently plan and deliver implant therapy using 3D digital Imagery
•To provide a surgical rationale for how patients benefit when we maximize the use of digital planning
•To support the notion and better planning up front makes everything that follows so much easier… for us and for our patients.

Topic: A novel technique for ridge augmentation utilizing PDGF-BB, FDBA and Titanium Mesh

Sufficient multidimensional osseous support has been shown to be one of the most determinant factors for implant placement and long term success. Insufficient or total lack of bone has been addressed by bone grafts, which provide ridge augmentation through a regeneration process, ridge split procedures, and distraction osteogenesis. This case series study introduces a novel technique for vertical and horizontal ridge augmentation and clinically and histologically evaluates the potential of rhPDGF-BB to stimulate reliably significant vertical and horizontal bone regeneration when used with human bone allografts contained by a titanium mesh.

Topic: Give teeth a chance

Perio-prosthetic implant treatment plan is usually based on tooth prognosis evaluation and its comparison to the anticipated long-term implant survival. Different approaches for determining tooth prognosis were described in the literature. Over the past decade, the use of osseointegrated implants as a foundation for prosthetic replacement of missing teeth has become widespread. However, there is an increasing trend toward replacing diseased teeth with dental implants. This lecture will provide a re-evaluation of our paradigms, beliefs and knowledge regarding both tooth prognosis evaluation and long-term implant success according to the currently available knowledge. We, as dental professionals, should avoid basing our treatment planning on thoughts and beliefs and stick as much as possible to evidence based practice.

Topic: The total digital implant planning and restoration concept –Are we there yet?

The most important phase in a complex implant case preparation is a precise pre-operative diagnosis and understanding of the treatment aims and the case limitations. With the aid of digital planning of the case through digital modelling and softwares, the clinician can predict anatomic conditions and occlusal limitations. It allows the clinician to transfer the planned 3-D implant position from the software into the surgical field, to plan in advance the restored teeth in respect to the occlusal relasionship and to the optimal implant position, to produce in advance a Cad/Cam provisional restoration and to decide regarding the surgical and prosthodontic protocols to choose such as late vs. immediate loading following a conventional flap vs. flap-less implant surgery. But what about the precision of the available intraoral scanners in oral implantology? Are we there yet? During the presentation the relevant and most updated literature and actual conclusions will be presented with few complex clinical cases.

Topic: Implants surgical and prosthetic approach – coordinate through evidence

As dental materials and  procedures become increasingly sophisticated and the array of options that practitioners can offer expands, treatments decision making should be guided by best available evidence. In this lecture we will review how  the treatment planning process of cases involving dental implants is impacted by best-available evidence and how this evidence is applied in the execution of the treatment plan. This lecture intends to provide a multi-disciplinary perspective with a patient-centric approach while exploring treatment dilemmas faced by clinicians.
