1. Regenerative and Esthetic Techniques in Implant Surgery: Clinical Applications in Tissue Engineering
 
 
This presentation will provide an update on techniques for esthetic implant site development using rhPDGF-BB (recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor BB). Cases will be presented demonstating successful treatment of extraction socket defects and ridge augmentation procedures in preparation for implant placement combining rhPDGF-BB with bone replacement grafts (BRGs). The use of growth factor technology is reducing the need for autogenous bone grafting and allowing for less invasive procedures.. Techniques utilizing combined hard and soft tissue grafting for periodontal and implant applications will also be presented. Applying tissue engineering to clinical decision-making achieves optimal biologic and esthetic results for challenging periodontal and implant cases. Surgical management for esthetic challenges will be presented. Minimally invasive techniques will be presented and discussed.
 
At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand the benefit of platelet-derived growth factor for localized ridge augmentation
  • Predictably sequence surgical therapy for complex dental implant cases
  • Compare and contrast various bone replacement graft biomaterials for use as growth factor enhanced matrices
2. Advancing Implant Dentistry with 3-Dimensional Planning Utilizing Cone-Beam CT Scans and Guided Surgery
 
 
The ability to plan implant treatment using 3-dimensional planning has increased the ability to predictably place implants in correct position based on the restorative diagnostic plan. Masking techniques with Simplant allow for precise planning of implant placement. This can be transferred into surgiguides or safesystem guides for implant placement. This presentation will demonstrate the integration of these techniques into implant practice. The new Biomet 3I Navigator surgical system will be presented demonstrating guided surgery for surgical and non-surgical treatment. A protocol for simplified immediate provisionalization will be presented.
