    Dental Hygiene - COVID-19 & Beyond

    Coronavirus poses a much higher risk to people living with pre-existing conditions and systemic inflammation. Now more than ever, it is imperative that we consider the role we play as true health care providers to support our patients to optimal oral and overall health.

    With the many changes in our clinical practice for the foreseeable future, we must utilize any and all adjunctive therapies that can help reduce oral disease and inflammation.

    During this discussion we will review aerosol management options and considerations, the critical role of adjunctive therapies such as bacterial testing, host modulation, oral probiotics and locally delivered antibiotics for better clinical outcomes.

    Full mouth immediate load and challenging hard & soft tissue augmentation

    Course Objectives: To understand long term hygiene requirements of a fixed prosthesis and there consequences. To understand the patients perspective on how to choose a removal Prosthesis over a fixed prosthesis. To identify long term complications with Immediate load fixed prosthesis. To demonstrate the Planning , surgical and prosthetic Technique for full arch immediate load. To demonstrate the steps and planning for a double arch immediate load.

     

    Course Outline: Full mouth immediate load will be discussed from a unique prospective. The patients perspective . Testimonials from 2 weeks after to 8 years after treatment will be shown. We will look at the long term failures and what we have learned over the last 10 years, is it acceptable to treat everyone with one paint brush? We will demonstrate both surgical and prosthetic techniques using the latest treatment options available in immediate load. We will also look at some common errors and causes of failure both in the short term and long term. Surgical augmentation both hard tissue and soft tissue will be shown, that are used to correct these failures. Finally we will conclude that there is another option, a hybrid option that has better long term success both from the patients perspective and clinical perspective.

    How to Enhance Wound Healing in Implant & Oral Surgery: the use of Aminogam

    This webinar featuring Dr. Daniele Cardaropoli will discuss how the wound healing following periodontal and implant surgery is a key moment in order to achieve optimal aesthetic and functional outcomes.

     

    Course Objectives:

      • Clinical indications following the “open healing” concept.
      • Rationale and applications in Periodontal surgery.
      • Rationale and applications in Implant surgery.

     

    Course Outline:

     

    The wound healing following periodontal and implant surgery is a key moment in order to achieve optimal aesthetic and functional outcomes.

    Improve bone defect repair

    The current long list of available natural and/or synthetic materials and surgical techniques makes the decision-making challenging with regards to what graft materials and surgical approach to use in oral surgery.

     

    This talk is going to be delivered by a clinician-scientist, with more than 60+ publications, will provide an evidence-based rationale for the use of Geistlich Bio-Oss® in combination with two novel bone anabolic conjugates of a bisphosphonate (INACTIVE alendronate) and a potent bone activating EP4 receptor agonist (EP4a) known as C3 and C6 conjugates. A study was conducted to investigate whether the conjugates prebound and released via Bio-Oss® granules have the potential to achieve rapid, enhanced and clinically significant bone regeneration. This talk will focus on this new combination of Bio-Oss® granules with conjugates that resulted in greater new bone volume and an increased rate of formation. This is expected to allow development of clinical treatments that provide more predictable and improved bone defect repair in oral and maxillofacial surgery. The results from this preclinical study were recently published in the Journal of Periodontology (JOP) which is the official publication of the American Academy of Periodontology.
