Immediate Implant Placement, Extraction Site Management & Partial extraction Therapy

This presentation will focus on alveolar defects seen immediately following tooth removal with emphasis on evaluation, classification, and treatment guidelines of the extraction socket.  Parameters to be assessed include gingival phenotype, buccal plate status, number of bony walls, and soft tissue status.  Clinical and CBCT based diagnostic and treatment protocols will be featured that include evaluation, timing, and sequence of extraction site management for both soft and hard tissue grafting.  Graft materials, bioactive modifiers and the use of membranes will be presented in a step-by-step protocol.  Temporization utilizing immediate loading protocols.  An in-depth review of a new innovative armamentarium and techniques utilized for Root membrane (Socket Shield) for tooth replacement with dental implants.  A step-by-step design and utilization of each bur and tool will be highlighted as well as a biological rationale supported by current literature and histology.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe sequential surgical treatment planning for implant treatment, including alternative treatments, based on interactions between implants and host tissues.
  • Review bone-grafting procedures following tooth extraction.
  • Describe predictable soft tissue management of extraction site.
  • Classification of gingival types and defects and techniques to preserve and develop keratinized tissue.
  • Guided surgical solutions.
  • Implant selection.
  • Temporization utilizing PMMA Fuse abutment and final abutments with an emphasis on developing emergence profiles.
  • Immediate loading and criteria, when to restore implants using ISQ device.

Event Details

PRESENTER: Dr. Vincent Celenza, DMD, Prosthodontist. New York, New York

Long Term Effects – Realistic Expectations with Implant Restorations

The use of dental implants has changed prosthodontics forever.  We will ask the questions:

“Are teeth better than implants?”
"Are implants better than teeth?”

This presentation will raise issues on the positive and negative aspects of our use of dental implants focusing on the timing of when to make decisions to utilize this relatively new technology. In addition, we will delve into questions regarding the retention of questionable teeth and what might we do to keep healthy teeth healthy.  Expectations from appropriate periodontal treatments to save ailing teeth will also be discussed.

Learning objectives:

  • Gain a deeper appreciation for real teeth and develop some criteria for when to keep and when to lose them.
  • Develop some skill sets and objectives for tooth preparation and impressioning.
  • Come away with a firm understanding for the importance of documentation of our work.

Event Details

PRESENTER: Dr. Edward Mills, DDS, Dentist, Atlanta, Georgia

Hard and Soft Tissue Vertical and Horizontal Regeneration

When treatment planning edentulous sites for dental implant therapy, invariably, the clinician and patient are faced with deficient volume of hard and soft tissue.  These deficiencies range in dimensions, but the need for either horizontal augmentation, or vertical, or both prior to implant placement is frequent rather than the exception.  The purpose of this presentation is to discuss surgical and also restorative protocols which are biologically additive and predictable for the partially and completely edentulous patient.

At the end of the program, participants should be able to:

  • Understand diagnosis and treatment planning of deficient ridges for future implant therapy.
  • Enhance bone formation and soft tissue thickness and biotype through bioengineering and rejuvenation.
  • Discuss appropriate long-term restorative material selection for predictable functional outcomes.

PRESENTER: Dr. Aldo Leopardi, BDS, DDS, MS, Prosthodontist, Greenwood Village, Colorado

Aesthetic Zone Provisionalization Clinical Update: fabrication, immediate vs custom healing abutments and tissue shaping

In the partially edentulous patient, achieving functionally acceptable treatment outcomes is often realized.  However, when tooth replacement is required in the aesthetic zone, the additional challenge of meeting both patient and clinician aesthetic expectations may prove to be significantly more challenging.  The objective of this presentation is to present treatment planning concepts and provisionalization techniques in the aesthetic zone that can help to minimize the gap between expectations and reality.  Following completion of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Understand direct and indirect provisionalization techniques.
  • Soft tissue manipulation to enhance tissue framing.
  • Develop custom impression posts replicating ideal tissue profiles (emergence profile update).
  • Immediate provisionalization and alternate techniques – custom healing abutments.

PRESENTER: Dr. Lambert Stumpel, DDS, Dentist, San Francisco, California

Fixed hybrid prosthesis: the cumulative experience of over 500 cases

It has been almost 50 years since the development of the prosthetic concept replacing missing teeth, bone and gums with a bone anchored bridge.   Much has changes since, but also much has stayed the same.  Edentulous patients today still require solutions to restore them back to function.  Luckily today we have many more options and insights on how to best do that.  This presentation will review the process.  Starting with treatment planning and how this makes or breaks a case.  Discussing the various immediate load techniques followed by almost every possible way one can produce a final prosthesis. A critical review will show that everything what is new is not necessarily better (but could be) and that we should always keep an eye on the long term functional and economic factors affecting our patients.

Learning objectives

After this presentation the audience should

  • Be able to pre-evaluate the edentulous or to be edentulous patient for implant prosthetic reconstruction.
  • Describe the various immediate load techniques.
  • Have a good understanding of the fabrication process of a fixed bone anchored bridge.
