Every 3 years since 1983, the beautiful city of Boston hosts the return of the International Symposium on Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry, and 2022 will be no exception. Our program will focus on the core elements that set this symposium apart—most notably a distinguished program featuring an internationally renowned group of clinicians, researchers, and academics to share their cutting-edge information.

As in years past, this meeting is expected to be characterized as a "can’t miss event" in continuing dental education. It is an opportunity to mingle with thought leaders and fellow professionals and to discover an authentic sense of camaraderie.

The topics presented and debated at the 14th Symposium will address clinical therapeutics including periodontics, oral surgery, implantology, orthodontics, and restorative dentistry as they interrelate in multidisciplinary dentistry. We are confident that you will return from the symposium to your office, laboratory, or university with a renewed enthusiasm for our profession.

Presented by the Quintessence International Publishing Group, publisher of The International Journal of Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry, and co-sponsored by the American Academy of Periodontology, this symposium addresses current trends in these dental fields as well as implant and esthetic dentistry. The symposium offers three cutting-edge sessions daily, presented by internationally recognized speakers, including the following formats: live lecture sessions involving case studies, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops. Participants can attend any sessions they wish. Pre-symposium workshops are also available for an additional fee.

Mucogingival Esthetic Surgery Around Implants Prof. Dr. Giovanni Zucchelli
Soft tissue plastic approaches to increase the height of the keratinized mucosa and/or the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues can be performed at three different stages: before implant placement, simultaneously with implant placement, and after implant placement. After implant insertion, especially in the mandible, it is common to face clinical scenarios in which there is complete absence or a minimal quantity of keratinized tissue, which is many times associated with a reduced depth of the vestib- ular fornix and coronal muscle insertion. In these cases, when there are no esthetic demands, the main objective is to reconstruct/increase the quantity of keratinized mucosa and deepen the vestibule to facilitate oral hygiene by the patient and at the same time reduce the risk of soft tissue dehiscence. The most appropriate surgical technique to obtain those results is the free gingival graft. Most of the time, soft tissue deficiencies at the buccal aspect of implant-supported crowns are a matter of thickness rather than height. The lack of adequate thickness of the buccal soft tissues can lead to an incorrect emergence profile of the prosthetic crown, which is difficult to maintain from a hygienic point of view; in these cases, the main goal of the plastic surgery is not to increase the height of the keratinized tissues but to augment the thickness of the connective tissue at the level of the peri-implant transmucosal portion. This is achieved with a surgical technique that involves the use of a connective tissue graft covered by a coronally advanced flap.

Vertical Ridge Augmentation with GBR
Vertical ridge augmentation with GBR is a well-documented and predictable surgical technique for the rehabilitation of patients with vertical bone atrophies. However, it is a very technically sensitive technique in that all the surgical steps must be respected to avoid complications and failures. The most important factors influencing the therapy success are the flap design, the correct placement and stabilization of the nonresorbable PTFE membrane, the periosteal releasing incisions, and the suture. This hands-on workshop will consider all these factors and give participants the opportunity to practice on specific models.

Peri-implant Diseases: Differentiated Nonsurgical Protocols Dr. Marisa Roncati
The surgical treatment of peri-implantitis should always follow nonsurgical periodontal therapy and be performed only in cases of unsatisfactory initial treatment results. We will review how to obtain effective decontamination/detoxification of the implant surface, including the use of laser-assisted procedures and innovative materials for a multiple antimicrobial approach. In cases of mucositis and/or peri-implantitis, specific protocols must be followed, which will be outlined and discussed. The nonsurgical approach has proven effective in cases of mucositis, when adequate home care is combined with appropriate mechanical instrumentation, and can sometimes even offer satisfactory results to prolong the survival of severely ailing implants. In addition, for patients who may not be able to accept surgical management, either for reasons of general health or psychologic and/or economic considerations, the dentist must evaluate the potential for a nonsurgical approach to achieve satisfactory results in the long term. Although it is often possible to treat peri-implant disease, prevention remains the best cure.
13:0017:00
Effective Periodontal Therapy: Diversified Protocols and Techniques Dr. Marisa Roncati
When is it appropriate to select a surgical option? Efforts will be made to answer this question through an evaluation of clinical cases with long-term follow-up. We will discuss periodontal patient management and modus operandi, including clinical ethics. Guidance is provided on protocols for appointment scheduling in clinical practice. The use of modified subgingival debridement techniques, state-of-the-art technologies, cause-related laser-assisted nonsurgical periodontal therapy, and novel materials are fully described. Clinical cases will be used to demonstrate how patient home care performance can influence the clinical management and outcomes, as well as to document satisfactory clinical stability following periodontal nonsurgical treatment.

Immediate Implant Placement and Provisionalization of Sin- gle Implants in the Esthetic Zone: Workshop for Beginners Dr. Christopher Köttgen, Dr. Ina Köttgen
After extraction of hopeless teeth, the inevitable loss of hard and soft tissue in vertical and horizontal dimensions often results in compromised implant sites. The effects can be very noticeable on anterior implant esthetics in patients with high smile lines. Immediate implant placement, and in some cases immediate provisionalization, is a recognized option for replacing teeth in the esthetic zone. With simultaneous grafting of soft and hard tissue, the horizontal topography of the peri-implant tissue can be almost perfectly maintained. The esthetic success of immediate implant placement and provisionalization procedures is influenced by a number of factors that can be identified as patient-dependent or clinician-dependent. This workshop is aimed at the ambitious implantologist who is not yet familiar with this topic. The process of this procedure will be described in detail. You will learn about patient selection, indications and contraindications, treatment planning, and choosing adequate materials to achieve esthetic success with immediate implant placement and provisionalization.
08:0017:00
Fundamentals of Dental Photography Miguel A. Ortiz
This workshop is divided into a morning seminar and afternoon hands-on experience. During the lecture, we will have an introduction to the fundamentals of photography: aperture, shutter speed, depth of field, ISO, white balance, histograms, and more. Once the fundamentals have been covered, we will turn into the accessories that are needed in dental photography, including cameras, lenses, lighting, and mirrors. Although not necessary, it is recommended that you bring your camera with you for this lecture. During the afternoon, we will divide into small groups to practice how to use all the parameters of photography described in the morning session. This will include but not be limited to aperture settings, shutter speed manipulation, lighting, and artistic photography. Dr Ortiz will also demonstrate the “Simple Intraoral Protocol” as described in his bestselling book LIT. You will have the opportunity to practice it as well.
08:0017:00
Soft Tissue Grafting with the Tunnel Technique Dr. Edward P. Allen
This interactive limited-attendance hands-on course, based on current clinical and biologic research, is intended for surgeons who wish to learn more about the tunnel grafting technique for treatment of soft tissue defects. Step-by-step surgical and suturing techniques are presented and discussed. Case presentations, surgical videos, and hands-on exercises provide in-depth knowledge about the use of the tunnel technique to achieve predictable coverage of single and multiple recessions. Attendees perform surgical exercises on custom models that simulate human recession defects, as they follow an illustrated procedural manual that describes each step. Individual instruction will be provided by Dr Allen during the exercises. At the completion of this course, you will have the knowledge and hands-on experience to begin performing the tunneling grafting procedure in your office.

He coordinated the specialization course in Implantology at the same school from 2006 to 2008. He was scientific coordinator of the specialization course in Implantology at Brazilian Dentistry Association (ABO) in Florianópolis/SC from 2000 to 2003. Nowadays, he is teacher of Implantology of these Study Centers. He developed a new technique to broden indications for immediate loading on individual teeth. Through it, cases of compromised sites with bone loss/gingival recessions can be reconstructed in the same surgical session of tooth extraction, implant placement and provisional crown installation, reducing the number of interventions and keeping predictability on esthetic aspects. The name of this technique is Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration or "IDR". The technique was theme of the book of the same name launched in Portuguese language in 2010, by Santos Publishing (São Paulo – Brazil). The book "Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR): Immediate-loaded implants in compromised alveolar sockets", sold out its first edition in three months. A new edition in Portuguese was launched in 2011 and the Spanish language version was launched in May 2012. The English language version in going to be launched until the end of 2012. Since 1993 he is giving lectures in all parts of Brazil and since 2009 he is giving lectures in Brazil and around the world to spread the technique developed by him. He has a private practice and Study Center in Caxias do Sul/RS – Brazil, "Rosa Odontologia", where he gives courses, hands-on and coordinates research groups.
