Immediate Implant Placement and Provisionalization of Sin- gle Implants in the Esthetic Zone: Workshop for Beginners Dr. Christopher Köttgen, Dr. Ina Köttgen
After tooth extraction, the 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 implants 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 these procedures is influenced by patient-dependent or clinician-dependent factors. This workshop is aimed at the ambitious implantologist who is not yet familiar with this topic. The process will be described in detail, including patient selection, indications and contraindications, treatment planning, and choosing materials to achieve esthetic success.

Objectives
- Understand patient selection and the factors that are key for esthetic success
- Learn how to treatment plan and choose appropriate materials to preserve bone
- Learn the surgical techniques for immediate implant placement, grafting, and provisionalization

- Work on realistic custom models with authentic recession defects
08:0012:00
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 when initial treatment results are unsatisfactory. We will review how to obtain effective decontamination of the implant surface, including the use of laser-assisted procedures and innovative materials for a multi-antimicrobial approach. Specific protocols for mucositis and/or peri-implantitis will be outlined and discussed. The nonsurgical approach has proven effective for mucositis, when adequate home care is combined with mechanical instrumentation, and can sometimes even prolong the survival of severely ailing implants. In addition, for patients who may not be able to accept surgical management for any reasons, the dentist must evaluate the potential for a nonsurgical approach to achieve satisfactory long-term results. Although it is often possible to treat peri-implant disease, prevention remains the best cure.

Objectives
- Understand cause-related therapies such as calculus detection, site-specific instrumentation, and full-mouth debridement with modified techniques
- Learn about laser-assisted periodontal nonsurgical treatment
- Learn multiple nonsurgical antimicrobial approaches and nonsurgical protocols in cases of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis

09:0018:30
Mucogingival Esthetic Surgery Around Implants Prof. Dr. Giovanni Zucchelli
When soft tissue plastic approaches to increase the height of the keratinized mucosa and/or the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues are performed after implant placement, especially in the mandible, it is common to face clinical scenarios of no or only minimal keratinized tissue. This is often associated with a reduced depth of the vestibular fornix and coronal muscle insertion. When there are no esthetic demands, the main objective is to increase the quantity of keratinized mucosa and deepen the vestibule to facilitate patient oral hygiene and 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, buccal soft tissue deficiencies of implant-supported crowns are a matter of thickness rather than height, which can lead to an incorrect emergence profile of the prosthetic crown. In these cases, the main goal is to augment the thickness of the connective tissue at the level of the peri-implant transmucosal portion. This is achieved with the use of a connective tissue graft covered by a coronally advanced flap.

Objectives
- Understand the free gingival graft procedure, step by step, to increase keratinized mucosa height before or after implant placement
- Learn the surgical procedure combining transmucosal implant placement and simultaneous submarginal connective tissue graft
- Review the harvesting technique, step by step

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.

Objectives
- Learn how to diagnose peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis
- Learn effective implant surface decontamination and cause-related laser-assisted nonsurgical peri-implant therapy
- Learn multiple nonsurgical antimicrobial approaches and nonsurgical protocols in cases of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis

Vertical Ridge Augmentation with GBR Dr. Istvan Urban
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.

Dehydrated Human De-epithelialized Amnion-Chorion Membrane (BioXclude) in Periodontal and Dental Implant Regeneration Surgery Prof. Dr. Joseph P. Fiorellini DMD, DMSc
08:0008:15
Introduction Prof. Dr. Joseph P. Fiorellini
The use of allograft placenta for tissue repair and regeneration is rapidly and forever
changing medicine. Snoasis Medical has played an integral part of this movement, pioneering applications in dental surgery since 2007. Its dehydrated human de-epithe- lialized amnion-chorion membrane (BioXclude) provides the benefits of an occlusive barrier with growth factors having anti-bacterial and pain-relieving properties. The membrane is thin, extremely adaptable, naturally self-adherent with handling advan- tages that allow use of BioXclude in multiple aspects of patient care. Underscoring the versatility of this incredible membrane, each session will focus on an entirely different application. From saving teeth and failing implants, to minimally invasive techniques for dental implant reconstruction.

Objectives
- Appreciate improved patient-centered outcomes of allograft placenta 

- Review clinical and scientific evidence in support for its use in tissue repair and 
regeneration 

- Recognize biologic and handling advantages that underpin barrier versatility 

08:1509:15
Bioactive Materials Used at the Time of Extraction for Combined Socket and Periodontal Augmentation Prof. Dr. Robert A. Horowitz
With the increasing trend to minimally invasive surgery, bone graft materials and barriers must predictably perform at a high level. A bone replacement graft that maintains growth factors due to its processing methods is ground dentin. It is autologous and remains completely sterile through processing yet does not destroy the inherent growth factors. Barriers in the surgeon’s armamentarium include an amnion-chorion barrier with growth factors, binding proteins, and other properties that can enhance wound healing in a surgical site. Clinically and histologically, this combination can improve vascular ingrowth and osteogenesis, leading to formation of more vital bone in, around, and in place of teeth. Utilizing these biomaterials may enable periodontists to save more teeth and prevent future bone loss around teeth and implants.
09:1510:15
Applying Updated Protocols Using New Bioactive Products: Understanding the Paradigm Shift to Improve Outcomes in Your Regenerative Treatment Dr. Paul S. Rosen
Regenerative treatment has become an integral part of the surgical armamentarium both for dental implants and for maintaining teeth with advanced disease. As graft materials have evolved, so too must the barrier materials that are used in tandem. One such device is a barrier membrane comprised by deepithelized amnion-chorion material. The advantage of this barrier is that it is extremely thin and somewhat resilient, and it helps biologically active grafts achieve optimal results as they too capitalize on recruiting cells and blood supply to the site while assisting in maintaining the space through graft containment. This lecture will focus on combination graft-membrane therapies using a deepithelized amnion-chorion membrane for the successful management of peri-implantitis, periodontitis, and implant therapy.

The Use of Bioactive Bone Grafts and Barriers in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry Dr. Michael Sonick
Bone grafting can be confusing. A multiplicity of techniques exists to regenerate bone around teeth and in preparation for successful dental implant therapy. Ideal bone regeneration and wound healing is dependent upon choosing the proper surgical technique and correct combination of bone graft material, growth factors, and barrier membrane, as well as proper timing of the various procedures. This presentation will discuss a bone grafting algorithm that leads to consistent success.
14:0015:00
Achieving Predictable Horizontal GBR Outcomes with Dehydrated Human De-epithelialized Amnion-Chorion Membranes (BioXclude) Dr. Vinay Bhide
Currently, the most commonly used barrier membranes for GBR include nonresorbable synthetic membranes and resorbable xenogeneic collagen membranes. In the past decade, there has been much interest in the use of dehydrated human deepithelialized amnion-chorion membranes (ddACM). These are derived from placental tissue, and given their favorable and unique biologic and physical properties, can be used in various periodontal and oral surgical procedures. This evidence-based presentation will discuss the use and advantages of ddACM as a biologically active barrier membrane for achieving predictable bone regeneration with GBR procedures. Several cases will be presented detailing initial grafting to prosthetic restoration with long-term follow-up.

Utilization of Dehydrated Human De-epithelialized Amnion-Chorion Membrane for Periodontal and Implantology Regenerative Surgery Prof. Hom-Lay Wang
Membranes and bone grafts have been widely used for tissue and bone regeneration in the periodontal and implant fields. To achieve a predictable outcome, primary wound closure is often recommended. The open wound healing approach using an amnion-chorion-derived membrane can reduce the extent of tissue manipulation, reduce patient morbidity, and prevent additional surgery while achieving similar clinical outcomes and gaining width of keratinized mucosa at the grafted site. This presentation highlights the unique features of the amnion-chorion membrane and how this membrane can be used for tissue regeneration and bone augmentation.

Periodontal Regeneration: A Developing Storyline for the Clinician and the Patient Dr. Christopher R. Richardson
The pendulum is swinging back to focusing on treatment, retention, and long-term success of the natural dentition and a more balanced reliance on dental implants to replace teeth. This presentation will provide the foundation for decision making on the management of intrabony periodontal defects, including choices regarding bone grafting options, the utilization of biologic mediators, and graft containment considerations. The attendee will become familiar with findings from periodontal regeneration reentry studies and private practice–based assessment of an ER,CR:YSGG laser vs the MIST protocol.
09:1510:15
Biology of Bone Regeneration to Improve Implant Outcomes Prof. Dr. Tara Aghaloo
Favorable implant outcomes depend greatly on adequate bone and soft tissue for restoratively driven implant placement, long-term function, and optimal esthetics. For the practicing clinician, graft materials must be biocompatible, easy to use, and provide predictable structure and function to support dental implants. But, is this enough in 2022? Do our grafting materials improve vascularity, perform equally in compromised sites, or address combination hard/soft tissue defects? This presentation will update the practicing clinician on advances in bone grafting techniques and technologies to facilitate our implant rehabilitation procedures.

Understanding the Value of Biologic Principles in GBR and Transferring Them into Clinical Practice Dr. Isabella Rocchietta
GBR has been successfully implemented as a routine therapeutic approach prior to or in conjunction with dental implant placement to allow for correct prosthetically driven positioning. Understanding the biologic principles and transferring them to the clinical practice are keys to achieving successful outcomes. The use of GBR associated with nonautogenous scaffolds in combination with particulate autogenous bone grafts constitutes the standard of care of bone augmentation in all alveolar defects with or without implants, including the most severe vertical deficiencies. Choosing the correct therapeutic approach in the selected indications, along with the appropriate biomaterials, plays a crucial role in obtaining positive outcomes in advanced GBR procedures.

30 Years of GBR—Latest Development and Long-Term Results Prof. em. Dr. med. dent. Daniel Buser
This lecture will present the development of GBR procedures in implant patients since the late 1980s. Today, implant placement with simultaneous GBR procedures is done with a two-layer composite graft by using locally harvested bone chips and a low-substitution bone filler such as DBBM. Autograft bone chips stimulate bone formation during initial healing, whereas DBBM particles offer excellent volume stability over time. The surgical procedure will be presented with different case reports including up to 10 years of follow-up. In addition, the latest developments will be shown, such as immediate implant placement with a flapless approach, and computer-assisted implant surgery (CAIS) as well as socket grafting for ridge preservation to allow implant placement without GBR.
14:0015:00
Strategies for Effective Management of the Extraction Site Dr. Gustavo Avilla-Ortiz
The absence of a tooth in its alveolus triggers a cascade of biologic events that typically result in the volumetric reduction of the alveolar process. Alveolar ridge atrophy may have a considerable impact on tooth replacement therapy, particularly when an implant-supported restoration is planned. Hence, adequate management of the extraction site represents a major component of contemporary dental practice. This presentation is primarily aimed at reviewing the healing dynamics that typically follow tooth extraction and different conventional and novel, digital-based strategies to minimize the negative impact of tooth loss for adequate restorative-driven dental implant planning (either immediate or delayed) based on current evidence.

Full-Arch Reconstruction and Planning with Robotic Guidance Dr. Scotty Bolding
Full-arch prosthetic reconstruction of the maxilla and mandible with dental implant support has gained significant popularity over the past several years. There have been multiple approaches to managing these cases both surgically and prosthetically. Despite the advances and development of CBCT-based planning software and fabricated static surgical guides for dental implant placement, there are several limitations that impact their use during surgery. These limitations not only affect the accuracy of the dental implant placement, but also impact the efficiency and accuracy of the surgery and prosthetics. This program will review the accuracy of robotic technology, its advantages, and how it can be used to streamline the planning and surgical delivery process for full-arch prosthetic reconstruction.
14:0015:00
Surgical and Prosthetic Planning: Implant-Retained Overdentures Dr. Evanthia Anadioti
Edentulism is prevalent in many parts of the world, and removable prostheses have traditionally been used for its management. As implant and digital dentistry advancements occur, improvements in implant-retained removable prostheses have changed the way we help the edentulous population. Despite the higher initial costs, those prostheses lead to higher oral health–related quality of life yet are still more affordable than other implant-supported treatment alternatives. This presentation will focus on the prosthetically driven surgical treatment planning and sequencing of overdentures. Clinical cases with adequate and inadequate planning will be reviewed as a learning tool for future success.

Reimagining Maxillofacial Prosthetics Utilizing Digital Technology and Additive Manufacturing Dr. Lydia Legg
Maxillofacial prosthetics have been utilized for decades to rehabilitate craniofacial defects, whether acquired as a result of cancer surgery or trauma, alterations in growth and development, or congenitally. The method of fabricating these prostheses is very labor intensive, as they are generally handmade. With the usage of optical scanning technology, the facial anatomy can be used to create a 3D CAD design. This 3D CAD model can then be used to design and digitally 3D print custom prostheses utilizing additive manufacturing. In addition, incorporating virtual surgical planning with the prosthetic CAD design prior to reconstructive surgery aids in streamlining the prosthetic workflow. This digital workflow has many advantages over existing analog techniques, such as precise accuracy, custom characterization, and minimally invasive record collection.

Bone and Soft Tissue Augmentations in the Esthetic Area: A Technique-Sensitive Procedure Dr. Ueli Grunder
Bone and soft tissue augmentation are necessary to compensate for or prevent tissue deficits around implants placed in the esthetic region. When used correctly and with the right materials, GBR can be achieved with good long-term results. However, the GBR technique is very technique sensitive, and bone augmentation alone doesn’t give us the perfect tissue volume. Soft tissue augmentation appears to be of enormous importance, particularly for long-term success. This presentation will discuss the goals of the GBR and soft tissue augmentation techniques, especially in the esthetic field, as well as which steps in the surgical phase are really essential for success.

Resin-Bonded CAD/CAM Ceramics in Esthetic Dentistry Prof. Dr. med. dent. Markus B. Blatz
Digital workflows, new ceramics, and adhesive technologies offer a whole new range of esthetic, less invasive, and long-lasting treatment options. However, there are still many questions: What are the treatment planning guidelines for material selection considering the large variety of ceramics available today? What ceramics can be used with chairside CAD/CAM systems, and what are the preparation guidelines? Do different ceramics require specific laboratory and clinical treatment? What cements or bonding protocols should I use to avoid failures? What are the best materials on implants? And where is the scientific evidence on all these topics? This presentation will answer such questions and provide an update on esthetic treatment options with resin-bonded CAD/CAM ceramics from conservative partial-coverage laminate veneers and onlays to resin bonded bridges and implant-supported restorations.

Essentials of Esthetics: Analog vs Digital Dr. Galip Gürel
In dentistry today, regardless of how complex a case is, the patients will not be happy if the final esthetic outcome will not fit their expectations. Therefore, it is imperative that the final result be previsualized by the patient in 3D before the start of treatment. This can be done via an analog (direct) or digital mockup. The timing will depend on the type of restoration: as part of treatment planning for complex implant cases or just before tooth preparation in simple veneer or crown-and-bridge cases.

Decision Making and Clinical Handling for Best Success with Implants in the Esthetic Zone Prof. em. Dr. Dr. h.c. Christoph Hämmerle
Based on the well-documented predictability of implant-borne reconstructions, a special focus in implant therapy has been to reconstruct the patient’s lost tissues for optimal esthetics. The GBR technique has been proven to be most effective and is widely used for the augmentation of lost bone tissue. Recently, new strategies such as ridge preservation techniques have evolved, enhancing predictability while reducing clinical complexity. The clinical procedures leading to predictable function and esthetic results of soft tissues are rapidly evolving. Several factors, such as location of the implant, presence or absence of adjacent teeth, height and width of the bone crest, mucosal thickness, and scalloping have been identified as critical factors for obtaining reliable final outcomes. Autogeneic soft tissue grafts represent the gold standard, and graft replacement materials made primarily of collagen have successfully been applied.
Advances in Adult Orthodontic Treatment with a Multispecialty Approach Dr. Luca Gobbato DDS, MS, PhD
13:0013:05
Introduction Dr. Luca Gobbato
Patients that want more ideal facial esthetics and function may choose to have the
interdisciplinary team use orthodontically informed surgery, including orthognathic surgery or surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy (SFOT). Surgical, orthodontic, and restorative perspectives will be presented to challenge the team to move beyond traditional interdisciplinary therapies into a new frontier for a broader view of dentofacial esthetics and enhanced outcomes. The rationale behind how to actually enhance facial appearance will be discussed. The biology behind SFOT and Piezoincision as well as their applications will be presented to familiarize the audience with the clinical possibilities.

Objectives
- Learn how to evaluate each patient to yield maximally esthetic outcomes 

- Understand diagnostic findings and imaging modalities critical to treatment 
planning the interdisciplinary patient 

- Review the biology, risks/benefits, and execution of SFOT in advanced interdisciplinary cases from a surgical, orthodontic, and restorative perspective

Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (SFOT): An Interdisciplinary and Facially Prioritized Approach Dr. George Mandelaris
Patients who want more ideal facial esthetics and function may choose to have the interdisciplinary team utilize SFOT to alter the dentoalveolar bone and optimally position the roots of the teeth for the patient’s face. Space may be appropriated to enable the restorative dentist to create natural tooth dimensions and morphology in the worn, eroded, or otherwise altered dentition. Surgical, orthodontic, and restorative perspectives will be presented to challenge the team to move beyond traditional interdisciplinary therapies into a new frontier for enhanced outcomes.

Dentofacial Esthetics—From Macro to Micro Dr. David M. Sarver
The commentary “design the smile to fit the face” is almost a cliché in dentistry. But do we really focus on the face, or does it play a minor role in smile design? In this presentation, Dr Sarver will give a broader view of dentofacial esthetics and how a smile can not only fit the face, but indeed can enhance facial appearance. After all, a great outcome is rarely the result of just one thing, it is the cumulative effect of many smaller things!
14:0015:00
New Perspectives for Immediate Placement in the Esthetic Area Dr. Daniele Cardaropoli
To compensate for the bone modeling and remodeling processes in the empty alveolus, ridge preservation with simultaneous implant placement can be performed to manage the bone-to-implant gap. A contemporary technique describes the grafting of the bone-to-implant gap before rather than after implant insertion to provide a more accurate 3D filling. Instant provisionalization results in a more stable maintenance of the soft tissue contour and esthetics. A key role is played by the creation of a soft tissue barrier due to a proper management of the transmucosal height. Interdental, midfacial, and horizontal soft tissue dimensions also tend to remain stable.

Indirect Esthetic Ceramic Restorative Material and Technique Options Dr. Robert Winter
The ultimate goal for indirect restorations is to provide an esthetic outcome that is enduring. There are many material choices and fabrication techniques that can be utilized to create a restoration. One key element to the success of the case is the predictability of the process that is followed for both clinical and technical procedures. This presentation will discuss ceramic material options for indirect restorations, review the literature concerning the long-term predictability of ceramic materials, and highlight clinical and technical procedures to improve outcome predictability.

Achieving Optimal Esthetic Outcomes with Implants Where It Really Counts Dr. Prof. Dennis P. Tarnow
Implants have been an amazing addition to the field of dentistry. However, with the increased use of implants in the esthetic zone, there have been a large number of problems as patients are demanding excellent esthetic results in addition to function. This lecture will focus on the surgical and restorative concepts that will make or break the success of the case. From initial incision to the final restoration, there must be an orchestrated sequential approach to minimize problems and increase success, using evidenced-based protocols wherever possible.

Predicting Success in the Regeneration of the Periodontium to Save Natural Teeth Dr. Maria L. Geisinger DDS
08:0008:05
Introduction Dr. Maria L. Geisinger
Although our ability to regenerate the periodontium has continued to evolve over the
last decade, our ability to save teeth is often overlooked for alternatives of extraction with dental implant placement. This session will highlight the predictability of periodon- tal regeneration with various approaches from bone replacement grafts, membranes, biologics, and customized growth factor–enhanced scaffolds, all with a focus on how to save natural teeth.

Objectives
- Understand a detailed rationale for deciding when to save teeth

- Discuss strategies for periodontal regeneration in compromised sites

The Three R’s for Multi-Rooted Teeth: Regenerate, Resect, Remove Dr. Pamela K. McClain
Multirooted teeth exhibiting bone loss present one of the most challenging periodontal defects to treat. Although dental implants have expanded treatment options, retention of the natural dentition remains an ideal goal in dentistry. Many therapeutic modalities in periodontics have demonstrated success in saving teeth. Among those is periodontal regenerative therapy. However, specific criteria are required for successful regeneration. When regeneration is not feasible, other options for retention include resective approaches as well as nonsurgical therapy. Unfortunately, there are times when removal is the only or best option. This program will review the criteria involved in making those decisions.

Interproximal Attachment Gain: The Challenge of Periodontal Regeneration Prof. Dr. Giulio Rasperini
In dentistry today, the esthetic demand from the patients has become
the main challenge in periodontology. Understanding the biology of
the periodontal wound healing will lead to respect and protection
of the healing phase. The new classification of periodontal disease
is based on the interproximal clinical attachment level (I-CAL). The
aim of classic periodontal reconstructive surgical techniques is the
regeneration of the infrabony defects or the treatment of gingival
recessions. The development of regenerative clinical and biologic
concepts, biomaterials, and new surgical techniques during the last
few years makes it possible to respond to the patient’s demands and
regenerate the interdental attachment of compromised teeth with
predictable long-term results.

Prevention and Correction of Peri-implantitis Dr. Sergio De Paoli MD, DDS
08:0008:15
Introduction Dr. Sergio De Paoli
Implant therapy is commonly selected for tooth replacement. Unfortunately, it is estimated that more than 28% to 50% of patients suffer from periimplantitis and require treatment modalities. In disease, the active peri-implant microbiome surrounding healthy implants is severely disrupted in a way that encourages a chronic nonhealing wound. This session will review the risk factors for and diagnosis of periimplantitis and provide a roadmap for evidence-based decision-making to optimize the removal of bacterial contaminants and resolve the inflammatory lesion. This panel will discuss both surgical and nonsurgical treatments to facilitate regeneration and consider the role that the prosthetic phase has in limiting marginal bone loss.

Objectives
- Understand patient risk factors for periimplantitis

- Consider the regenerative treatment plan for success

- Observe the esthetic end-point goals of prosthetic treatment

For more than 30 years, GBR techniques have been demonstrated to be effective to rehabilitate localized jawbone atrophies. This program will provide an evidence-based update and guidelines for vertical ridge augmentation procedures. A comprehensive treatment plan is needed to restore not only missing teeth but also the volume and position of the edentulous ridges, the volume of soft tissues, the interarch relationships, and the final position of the natural teeth. Several approaches will be presented with focus on diagnostic criteria for case selection and technical approaches to improve predictability and limit complications. The presenters will share their decades of research and clinical practice applications of their preferred techniques.

Armamentarium for Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry (BRD) PD Dr. med. dent. Pascal Magne
In BRD, science, common sense, experience, and the patient’s constraints and preferences are the four synergistic components involved in the decision for the optimal treatment plan. Nevertheless, placement of biomimetic adhesive restorations also requires the use of adequate materials and instruments. Proper tooth preparation should include the most conservative caries detection and caries removal techniques. The process includes strict isolation procedures. In this presentation, special tools will be discussed such as fiber optics, abrasion devices, oscillating tips, composite resin placement instruments, and magnification aides. Adequate bonding procedures to enamel and dentin and the selection of the most appropriate restorative materials and techniques—including direct, semi-(in) direct, and indirect—will complete this essential guide to BRD.

Understanding and Treatment of Peri-implantitis Prof. Dr. Myron Nevins
The prevalence of peri-implantitis has been documented internationally. The etiology includes inflammation of the supporting structure, occlusal forces of the prosthesis, medical histories, certain types of implant surfaces, and cemented prosthetics. It is a significant problem that must be diagnosed at an early stage. Treatment options vary from a nonsurgical approach for mucositis to regeneration of lost osseous structure, including a laser approach to decontaminate the implant surface. Of special interest has been the concept of satisfying esthetic demands. Our expanded use of implants has been positive and usually successful, but a failure is problematic for both the team and the patient.
08:1509:15
An Updated Decision Tree for Horizontal and Vertical Bone Augmentation Dr. Craig Martin Misch
Bone augmentation is often required to place an adequate number of dental implants in ideal positions for prosthetic support. In addition to improving biomechanics, bone enhancement can improve esthetic outcomes. There are various techniques that are available for bone augmentation, including GBR, block bone grafting, titanium mesh grafting, interpositional grafting, ridge expansion, and distraction osteogenesis. The use of autogenous bone is still a mainstay in our surgical techniques, but growth factors may be considered as an alternative. This presentation will guide clinicians on an updated decision tree for bone augmentation in preparation for implant rehabilitation.

Soft and Hard Tissue Corrections in Peri-implantitis defects Dr. Stefano Parma-Benfenati, Dr. Carlo Tinti
Peri-implantitis is a bacterial infection of peri-implant supporting tissues, characterized by loss of supporting bone. Early interception is a crucial factor that can improve treatment prognosis. The appropriate diagnosis will facilitate preoperative selection of soft and hard tissue techniques for the correction of peri-implantitis defects. The primary objective of surgical treatment in peri-implantitis lesions is to get access to the exposed implant surface to optimize the removal of bacterial contaminants and decontamination or conditioning, resolving the inflammatory lesion. Additionally, it is highly recommended to reconstruct the lost soft and hard periodontal tissues. Several peri-implantitis cases with survival follow-up, strategies, clinical protocol, techniques, and clinical outcomes on reentry will be presented.

Restorative Dentistry in Times of Digitalization Prof. Dr. Irena Sailer
One main topic of interest in prosthodontics is the technologic changes over the last few years. These advances include digital impressions, CAD/CAM restorations, and augmented reality treatment and planning tools to increase patient engagement. In addition, a variety of new restorative materials have been introduced for computerized manufacturing, which promise to be long-lasting, highly esthetic, and less costly. They can be used in the monolithic stage and processed chairside in the dental practice. This lecture will critically evaluate the possibilities that the new materials and associated technologies offer, and will offer selection criteria for daily clinical practice.

Zircomania: Full-Arch Zirconia Rehabilitations Prof. Dr. Wael Att
Due to demands for more esthetic rehabilitations, advancements in technology, and introduction of new materials, the application of ceramic materials in dentistry has been increasing rapidly. The ultimate goal of a combination between new materials and technology is to achieve faster, better, and preferably cheaper patient services. For these purposes, zirconia became the material of choice for many clinicians, especially for implant-supported full-arch rehabilitations. At the same time, clinicians sometimes face challenges when dealing with zirconia and prefer to utilize conventional or alternative materials. This presentation will provide an overview about the application of zirconia materials and related digital workflow in full-arch implant rehabilitations. Guidelines will be presented to help clinicians identify when zirconia or alternative materials should be chosen, reducing the risk of experiencing complications and facilitating a successful outcome.

Perspectives on Vertical and Horizontal Augmentation Dr. Istvan Urban
Vertical and horizontal augmentation presents one of the greatest challenges of bone regeneration in implant dentistry. This is primarily due to the difficulty of the surgical procedure and its potential complications. However, it has been demonstrated that successful clinical outcomes can be predictably achievable when strict protocols are followed. The detailed understanding of clinical anatomy should guide the clinician when managing the soft tissue flaps in an attempt to securely close the flaps to achieve optimal healing environment of the graft. Graft immobilizations and the optimal use of graft materials are essential in achieving bone formation even in a distance from the bony walls. This presentation will summarize the essential steps of ridge augmentation and provide insight how a clinician can learn these demanding procedures.

Peri-implantitis: Is Regeneration an Option? Dr. Donald Clem
Dental implants have arguably been the most influential change in dentistry over the last 35 years. Despite the high predictability of this treatment option for many patients, there has been a rethinking of implant health conditions influencing long-term maintenance of bone and an ongoing interest in managing inflammatory lesions affecting surrounding bone and soft tissue. Discussions with patients regarding dental implant options is akin to discussing any other medical device implanted in the body, and reasonable expectations both in terms of potential success and mitigation of complications now and in the future can be a delicate discussion. We will attempt to address each of these aspects to provide the clinician a roadmap for evidence-based decision making and treatment options.

An Advanced Perspective on Lithium Disilicate Restorations in the Age of Zirconia Dr. Kenneth A. Malament
Ceramics are the most consistently predictable esthetic dental material, allowing dentists to offer more treatment options for patients’ simple and complex problems. Single-phase or monolithic all-ceramic materials have become increasingly more popular and do not chip as do all bilayered ceramic materials, bringing with them more long-term success. Monolithic zirconia and metal-ceramics are the “state of the art” for complex splinted teeth and implant prosthodontics. Original research will be presented on the clinical behavior of almost 8,000 all-ceramic restorations and more than 4,000 e.max lithium disilicate restorations. An emphasis on the survival of complete and partial coverage restorations will be discussed.

Vertical Ridge Augmentation in Advanced Clinical Cases of Dental Agenesiae: A Multidisciplinary Approach Prof. Dr. Massimo Simion
GBR techniques have been demonstrated to be an effective treatment to rehabilitate localized jawbone atrophies for more than 30 years. Recently, the advances in soft tissue management have considerably improved the final esthetic outcomes. The treatment of advanced jawbone atrophies requires a multidisciplinary approach involving the periodontist, the orthodontist, the prosthodontist, and the hygienist. Comprehensive treatment planning is needed in order to restore not only the missing teeth, but also the volume and the position of the edentulous ridges, the volume of soft tissues, the interarch relationships, and the final position of the natural teeth. This lecture will present complex clinical cases in which the treatment plan and the surgical techniques will be described in detail.

Peri-implantitis: A Chronic, Nonhealing Wound Dr. Purnima S. Kumar
Dental implants replace missing teeth in at least 100 million people, yet over 1 million implants fail every year due to peri-implantitis, a bacterially induced inflammatory disease. Our ability to treat peri-implantitis is hampered by a paucity of information on host-microbiome interactions that underlie the disease. By characterizing molecular events at the mucosal-microbial interface in the peri-implant crevice, we discovered an active peri-implant microbiome surrounding healthy implants. Microbial genes regulate human genes encoding cell development, metabolism, morphogenesis, adhesion, gap junctions, cell-cell signaling, and immuno-inflammatory pathways, suggesting a role for commensals in protecting epithelial integrity. In disease, we discovered that microbial dysbiosis in the peri-implant sulcus promotes abandonment of host-bacterial transactions that dictate health and instead drives a move toward chronic programming of a nonhealing wound.

Full-Mouth Rehabilitations in Patients with Severely Worn Dentition: The MIPP Technique Dr. Mauro Fradeani
Restoration of esthetics and function can represent a major challenge when performing a full-mouth rehabilitation in patients with a severely worn dentition. Preserving tooth structure is crucial to provide long-term tooth survival, and the MIPP technique (minimally invasive prosthetic procedure) has proven to be not only reliable but also effective in maintaining pulpal health. The key steps of this technique include the increase of the vertical dimension of occlusion that automatically creates a clearance between the two arches, thus avoiding invasive occlusal preparations. The lecturer will demonstrate how the maintenance of a maximum amount of enamel in these very thin partial and complete coverage restorations, combined with the appropriate bonding technique, can guarantee a remarkable resistance and a long-lasting result of the prosthetic rehabilitation.

During the session, novel techniques for 3D bone reconstruction, such as the fence technique and the wafer technique, will be illustrated. Management of peri-implant soft tissue in terms of techniques applied prior to or during abutment connection, with the intention of providing not only esthetic but also a biologic benefit, is also discussed. A critical analysis of the most recent scientific literature regarding the various surgical procedures available will be presented along with the results of clinical research compiled by a team of multidisciplinary professionals.

Key Surgical and Prosthetic Factors in the Limitation of Early Marginal Bone Loss Dr. Sergio Spinato
Marginal bone loss (MBL) may be influenced by both surgical factors (overheating during site preparation, excessive cortical compression, insufficient crestal bone width) and by prosthetic variables (type of implant/abutment connection, entity and location of implant/ abutment microgap, multiple abutment disconnections, cement remnants). Recent findings suggest that early marginal bone resorption is influenced more by prosthetic phases than by surgical phases. In particular, the use of high prosthetic abutments seems to be effective in preventing MBL. Additionally, recent findings relating to both peri-implant mucosal thickness and the effects of implant surfaces (machined and traditional rough surfaces) in the limitation of MBL will be discussed. Are zirconia implants beneficial in limiting MBL and the subsequent onset of peri-implantitis?

Gap Management in the Anterior Zone: Direct Bonding or Ceramics, Full or Partial Reconstructions Dr. med. dent. Konrad H. Meyenberg
An unfavorable relationship between the form and dimension of the dental arch and the number, dimension, and shape of the existing teeth can pose several esthetic, biologic, and functional problems. In this presentation, the various restorative options are discussed based on clinical and scientific evidence. These include gap closure, gap opening, gap distribution, gap shifting, and gap compensation. The reconstructive tools with special emphasis on the materials and their inherent esthetics and sustainability are discussed, and numerous cases are presented to illustrate the different concepts.
15:3016:30
Papilla or Not Papilla—This Is the Question... Dr. Marco Ronda
The loss of teeth in the esthetic area will always cause an alteration of both hard and soft tissue volume, and these reabsorption patterns have been extensively reported in the literature. Bone augmentation procedures aim to reconstruct missing tissue volumes to achieve functional and well-integrated implant-prosthetic rehabilitation. However, even when these reconstruction procedures are well-executed, a uniform esthetic result is not a guarantee. The presence of the papilla is a crucial factor for the harmonious integration of implant-supported prosthetic restoration in the esthetic zone. The purpose of this lecture is to assess the management of missing teeth and associated bone defects in the esthetic area, as well as to discuss the viability of integrating prosthetic restoration in a mimetic context which comprises scalloping, papillae, and symmetric morphologies.

Why Restorations Fail: Analyzing Risk and Improving Treatment Longevity Dr. John Kois
The ability to provide restorative dentistry with a predictable outcome is dependent on an individualized risk assessment for your patient. Unfortunately, the majority of data utilized in making decisions regarding patient care is based on survival analysis, which is procedure-generated and may not accurately reflect the individual needs of your patient. This program will provide a conceptual framework for clinical practice that will create a paradigm shift in the way we interface with our patients and collect data. This presentation will lead to more successful strategies regarding the integration of restorative dentistry.

Immediate Loading Minimally Invasive Procedures in the Treatment of the Fully Edentulous and Transitional Patients: Myth or Reality Dr. Tiziano Testori
Innovation and new techniques emerge almost weekly, and clinicians are often tempted to experience new trends, losing sight of the most important factors in treating patients (diagnosis, treatment plan, prognosis, and minimally invasive procedures). These factors are fundamental in treating patients in an ethical and professional manner. This lecture examines the treatment process in fully edentulous and transitional patients from multiple points of view, not only the immediate loading perspective, in an effort to balance the very complex process of deciding the best treatment for each patient.

The Impact of Soft Tissue Phenotype on Esthetics, Health, and Longevity Around Teeth and Implants Dr. Lorenzo Tavelli
The term phenotype has been recently introduced to indicate a site-specific component around teeth and implants that can change over time. The augmentation of the soft tissue phenotype using different graft materials and techniques has shown to have the potential to promote better esthetic outcomes and long-lasting results. This lecture will present the most updated evidence on soft tissue phenotype modification procedures and their benefits on periodontal and peri-implant health, esthetics, and patient-reported outcomes. The rationale of intervention and the expected clinical, volumetric, and ultrasonographic results are highlighted through a case presentation.

Interdisciplinary Management of the Worn Dentition Dr. Greggory Kinzer
No single factor has as much influence on the long-term predictability of restorations as managing the occlusion and occlusal forces. This is especially true for the multitude of patients who present with tooth wear. To increase the predictability of the restorative treatment and reduce the potential of ceramic fractures, special attention needs to be given to diagnosis and treatment planning, as well as occlusal design. This presentation will address the etiologies of tooth wear and discuss the current thoughts around treatment planning and occlusal design. The information applies to the entire spectrum of restorative dentistry, whether the restoration is a single tooth or an entire arch.

Long-Term Outcomes of Loading with the IDR Technique—How to Mirror Natural Biology Using Autogenous Bone and Soft Tissue Grafts from the Maxillary Tuberosity Dr. José Carlos da Rosa
The immediate dentoalveolar restoration (IDR) is a powerful surgical and prosthetic technique established to broaden indications for immediate loading on compromised teeth. It is a technique that allows tissue losses in compromised sockets to be reconstructed using autogenous graft harvested from maxillary tuberosity in the same surgical session of implant placement and provisional crown installation. The main focus of the lecture is to present the IDR protocol, which advocates minimally invasive surgery and flapless procedures, and discuss challenging clinical cases in the anterior zone in combination with severe bone loss and soft tissue damage, and the biologic response. This is a new perspective to manage compromised sockets in a simple and reproducible way.

Minimally Invasive Tooth Replacement Strategies: Alternatives to Surgical Bone Augmentation in the Esthetic Zone Dr. Maurice Salama
A single-tooth implant has a high potential for a successful esthetic result. But it remains challenging to our profession to provide similar esthetics for replacement of multiple adjacent teeth. This is because the reconstruction of an interdental papilla in between adjacent implants is difficult due to the occurrence of alveolar bone remodeling following extraction. This presentation will cover three strategies to improve esthetics without bone augmentation: orthodontic neogenesis with periodontal plastic surgery, partial extraction therapies, and the creation of artificial gingiva. The benefits of each technique will be highlighted as well as current data and references.

Innovations in Implant Design for Maxillary Anterior Extraction Sockets: Biology Always Wins! Dr. Stephen J. Chu
The original cylindrical dental implant developed by Brånemark and introduced into North America is the early 1980s was designed to treat edentulous patients. Since that time, treatment strategies and techniques have evolved immensely based upon patients’ needs, including immediate tooth replacement in the anterior maxilla. This presentation will discuss a novel hybrid implant concept that incorporates transformations in diameter, shape, thread pattern, and prosthetic angle correction within a singular body form to meet the requirements of extraction sockets in the anterior maxilla. Supporting data through animal and clinical research validating the rationale of design as well as early- to mid-term outcomes in multicenter studies will be presented.

Immediate Implant Placement: When Should It Not Be Flapless? Prof. Dr. Giovanni Zucchelli
Immediate implant installation is traditionally considered as a flapless procedure, and it is indicated only in sites with ideal anatomical conditions such as an intact facial bone wall with a thick wall phenotype (> 1 mm) and a thick gingival biotype. The aim of the lecture will be to describe a novel mucogingival approach to immediate implant installation that allow this treatment to be performed in different clinical scenarios, such as unfavorable position of the soft tissue margin of the tooth to be extracted; unfavorable condition of the soft tissue margin of the adjacent teeth (eg, presence of gingival recession or altered passive eruption); loss of papillae height and thickness of the tooth to be extracted; or unfavorable condition of the buccal bone wall.

Hard and Soft Tissue Management for Functional and Esthetic Treatment Outcomes in Periodontally Compromised Patients Dr. Takeshi Sasaki
The different tissues of bone, gingiva, and tooth are in continuous harmony when teeth and periodontium are cleansable and esthetic. However, once caries or periodontal disease has caused bone resorption or tooth loss, continuity of bone level, gingival line, and tooth position is disturbed. Not only are function and esthetics compromised, but cleansibility is also decreased, which contributes to disease progression. The same tissue continuity is important in implant cases. Therefore, in order to maintain the long-term tissue stability in periodontally compromised patients, it is indispensable to achieve tissue continuity with the effective application of hard and soft tissue management. In this presentation, we will discuss reconstructive treatment procedures of gingival grafts and GBR to improve alveolar defects.

Clinical Relevance of Abutment Muco-integration Luigi Canullo
Recently published literature showed that interactions between soft tissues and a foreign body like an abutment are mediated by the tissue characteristics and the material features of the abutment. However, soft tissue expression seems to depend on both histologic characteristics and inflammatory and regenerative patterns. The abutment surface features could be didactically summarized in macro, micro, and nano. While narrower macro morphology was clearly associated with better bone level maintenance and better esthetic outcomes, moderately rough microsurfaces were shown to enhance the connective/metallic adhesion, as well as a more hydrophilic and more decontaminated surfaces. Finally, in a microbiologic contaminated environment like the oral cavity, microbiologic colonization of the abutment surface was shown to influence the soft tissue/foreign body interaction.

Real-World Evidence Supporting Alternatives to Autogenous Tissue Dr. Michael K. McGuire
Clinicians successfully increase keratinized tissue and cover denuded roots every day using tissues harvested from the palate. This program will demonstrate how practice-based research conducted in offices like yours can identify alternatives to palatal tissue that satisfy clinical needs and patient desires. You will learn what makes practice-based research powerful, how different alternatives compare to the “gold standard” palatal tissue, and the importance of real-world evidence and patient-reported outcomes in guiding treatment decisions.

Anticipatory and Comprehensive Implant Planning Guides Enhanced Dental Implant Esthetic Outcomes Prof. Dr. Lyndon F. Cooper
This presentation will focus on the current development of comprehensive digital planning and execution for single-tooth dental implants involving the simultaneous guided implant placement, tissue augmentation, and delivery of an abutment and crown. Data regarding the accuracy of planning and guided implant/abutment placement will be provided as a foundation. The esthetic augmentation of the alveolus will be illustrated using a flapless approach, and the results of a prospective RCT comparing grafted versus non grafted implant treatment will be presented. Using CBCT and intraoral scanning to build a virtual patient enables the clinician to provide comprehensive single-tooth implant therapy in a single visit that manages the challenges and limitations of such therapy.
12:2013:05
The Conometric Concept in Implant Prosthetics: A New Way to Make Fixed Restorations Dr. Marco Degidi
Until now, two means have traditionally been used for retaining prostheses: screws or cement. We all know the pluses and minuses of each method. Now imagine a third method that has the advantages of both traditional methods with none of the disadvantages; for example, restorations with occlusal tables that don’t have holes but are easy to remove. This is the conometric concept: Permanent prostheses retained only by friction, not removable by the patient, but easily removable by the dentist when required. It can be applied on single teeth, partials, or full arches; to make temporary or definitive prostheses; loaded immediately or delayed; and in combination with many types of restorative materials.
12:2013:05
Optimal Regenerative Protocol for Esthetic Rehabilitation Utilizing Growth Factors
A variety of soft tissue augmentation procedures have been employed for treatment of gingival recession defects, as well as for augmentation of mucosal deficiencies around implants. For periodontal and implant therapies, periodontal plastic surgery (PPS) is essential. However, results are sometimes unpredictable and not consistently successful. Growth factors such as EMD and FGF-2 have attracted recent attention. They make up one of the three elements for regeneration of periodontal tissue and can be utilized in PPS to help provide dependable outcomes. This presentation will substantiate the effectiveness of EMD and FGF-2 by reviewing cases that demonstrate incidences of success and failure. The etiology of failure and how to recover from failure will be also discussed.

The coverage of recessions around teeth is a very successful surgical treatment. The published evidence suggests that periodontal plastic surgeons can very predictably perform these procedures. However, how does reality present? What are the measurement methods and indexes used to support the external evidence? During this lecture, we will look very critically at the evidence we used to support our enthusiasm about the coverage of recession procedures. Second, we will try to answer the raised question in the title of this lecture. Third, the entire thought process will be supported by clinical cases.

It is the responsibility of each participant to verify the requirements of their state licensing board. Meeting attendees are responsible for ensuring that their education credits are current and on file with their respective state board or other licensing/regulatory agency.

This continuing education activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the standards of the ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) through joint efforts between the American Academy of Periodontology and Quintessence International Publishing Group.

ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry. Concerns or complaints about a CE provider may be directed to the provider or to the Commission for Continuing Education Provider Recognition at ADA.org/CERP.

Participant caution: Quintessence International Publishing Group and the American Academy of Periodontology caution participants in CE courses about the potential risks of using limited knowledge when incorporating new techniques and procedures in their practice, especially when the course has not provided supervised clinical experience.

Quintessence Publishing Company Inc is designated as an Approved PACE Program Provider by the Academy of General Dentistry. The formal continuing education programs of this program provider are accepted by the AGD for Fellowship/Mastership and membership maintenance credit. Approval does not imply acceptance by a state or provincial board of dentistry or AGD endorsement. The current term of approval extends from (9/1/2020) to (8/31/2022). Provider ID #308695
