    How to approach the treatment of the patient with hopeless implants

    Abstract

    Today more and more implants are placed. According to the professionality of the Clinician implants are sometimes under risk or with fail due to surgical, periodontal or restorative compromised treatment procedures. As we all know implant dentistry professionalized over a period of about 40 years. In the beginning doctors did not very much care about the living tissues – bone and mucosa – which was more or less a try-and-error situation. Implant material, implantat surface, implant-abutment connection (the so called hardware complex) hat to be evaluated under clinical and scientific circumstances to determine the successful interaction with the different individual (patient related) situations. First of all the medical status and the medication plays an important role for an uncompromised implant Osseo integration and soft tissue adaption. The upmost diagnostic measure is the periodontal status of the implant-patient. Periodontosis always is a risk factor for long term success of the implants. Additional co-factor mostly smoking increase the risk of the afore mentioned risk. From a restorative point of view the number of missing teeth, the amount of bone atrophy and the unnatural interrelation of maxilla and mandible are the most critical factors from a aesthetic and/or functional point of view. Malpositioned implants are emphasized these problems in patients who need a re-treatment. Worst case scenario is failing implants. Because of the aesthete compromises due to infected soft and peri-implant tissues the preregnisites for a second or even third time of therapeutic intervention are very much uncontrolled. There is only a limited variety of treatment modalities of the peri-implantitis. To remove a failing means the patient will also lose his superstructure and the case with end up sometimes with a severe loss of soft and hard tissue. The patients of course are sensitive and are very anxious about a new intervention. My part of the session will focus on the multiple consequences after peri-implant deceases or even complete implant loss. In many compromised outcomes multi-staged treatment steps are necessary to achieve an acceptable aesthetic or functional outcome. Beside the clinical problems the dentist has to get along with the patients psychosomatic attitudes in addition.

    Full-arch zirconia rehabilitations

    Abstract

    Nowadays, zirconia is being increasingly used for the fabrication of full-arch implant rehabilitations. Thanks to recent advancements in implant diagnostics, treatment planning and execution, primarily due to the emergence of digital technologies, the fabrication of zirconia-based full-arch rehabilitations has become a routine procedure among practitioners. However, concerns regarding the applicability of this material as well as its longevity for such large rehabilitations have been raised. This presentation will provide an overview about full-arch zirconia implant rehabilitations, their advantages as well as current knowledge about their clinical performance. The goal is to provide clinicians with guidelines regarding the selection process and fabrication of such rehabilitations, ultimately facilitating predictable results.

    Importance of Implant Position and Emergence Profile, the role of Provisional restoration

    Abstract

    Factors of importance for implant esthetics include the anatomy of the implant recipient site, the position of the implant and the soft tissue management procedures during the various phases of implant placement and restoration. The soft tissue that frames the restoration contributes greatly to its overall appearance. To prevent loss of soft or hard tissue, each phase of rebuilding the implant site, placing the implant and managing the soft tissue must be carefully considered. Provisional restorations should be used to evaluate aesthetic, phonetic and occlusal function prior to delivery of the final implant restorations, while preserving and/or enhancing the condition of the peri-implant and gingival tissues. This presentation discusses the restorative aspects of soft tissue management and the consequences for improperly doing it and how to solve clinical situations.

    The biological and clinical keys for peri-implant regeneration

    Abstract

    Dental implants are considered a successful and predictable treatment of partial and full edentulism. However, a prerequisite for the successful placement of implants in the ideal, prosthodontically driven position is a minimum amount of bone width and height of the recipient site. Lateral ridge augmentation procedures are necessary when the width of the recipient alveolar ridge does not present with the adequate dimensions for implant placement. Among these techniques, the guided bone regeneration (GBR) approach has been one of the most widely used, which can be performed either in combination with the implant placement (one stage/ simultaneous approach) and this would be usually associated with dehiscence or fenestration bone defects, or before the surgical placement of the implants and following a period for healing (two stage/staged approach) for thin alveolar ridges. Various non-resorbable and resorbable membranes have been used in combination with different types of grafts in the context of GBR. This lecture will deal with the biological and clinical rationale for GBR in the simultaneous approach, showing the step-by-step surgical procedure.

    The analog clinician with a combined digital-analog technician

    Abstract

    No doubt digital technology is here and is penetrating rapidly, but whether we implement it in our daily work is still a decision that we have to take. It goes beyond question that digital technology has improved enormously diagnostic tools such as radiology. Nowadays, for instance, 3-D imaging is routinely performed in many dental offices. Also, digital aesthetic diagnosis and digital flow of prosthodontic treatments are in constant yet vertiginous development at the clinical and laboratory level. Doubtlessly, when working in the laboratory, Cad/Cam systems are tools that provide versatility and precision. However, once in the dental clinic the introduction of this technology is somehow more complex, as for the usage of intraoral digital scanning and manipulation. In this conference, we want to show you what is our involvement with this technology and how we implement it to maintain maximum quality and efficiency in our daily practice.

    Full arch ceramo-metal restorations

    Abstract

    To obtained a mimetic integration of the implant-prosthetic device, due to the anatomical deficit and because of the discrepancy between the implant position and the one of the crown, is more complicated than the prosthesis made on natural teeth. The final results and the stability of perimplant tissues are influenced by the choice of implant components, of connections and of materials, that are decisive factors during decision-making level of the treatment plan.

    How to choose the proper connection and abutment. External connection and no abutment?

    Abstract

    The role of implant-abutment interface in peri-implant bone remodeling and the development of implant connections have been recognized as a major issue in modern Implant Dentistry. Proposed by P-I Branemark and designed to aid implant insertion, the external hexagon was adopted for abutment fixation and was generalized worldwide, with and without abutments. Implant connection type should be analyzed taking in consideration patient-centered and clinical outcomes, evaluated at the level of the implant and the prothesis. The available literature presents discrepant results with different methodologies. To scrutinize the influence of external connection in the mentioned parameters, a systematic search will be presented and the results will also be appraised based on quality assessment and risk of bias tools. This analysis will also be integrated with clinical data from the presenter’s center.

    The use of implant-supported prostheses to restore function after orthodontic therapy

    Abstract

    Orthodontic therapy can be used not only for aligning teeht but also for facilitating prosthodontic and implant therapy; furthermore, it can help developing the correct base needed for recovering an esthetic and functional dentition.  By dental movements, we can open spaces for placing implants and place teeth in the correct position in their arches. But also, when moving teeth, bone can be created and soft tissues displaced, thus facilitating the surgeon and the restorative dentist job and improving esthetics and function. Obviously, there are biological boundaries that we have to know and respect  by the correct study and selection of the cases and following the guidelines found in the literature.

    Tissue management in anterior zone – when, why and how to achieve it in the transitional zone around implants

    Abstract

    Many technological advances in implant dentistry have been made in the last decade, and while these advances help us in diagnosis and treatment planning, they cannot be properly used without a well-structured decision- making process to manage the soft tissue. Every dental procedure should be the result of a well-organized sequence of treatments in order to avoid an unpleasant result and perform a correct tissue management. The purpose of this conference is create a decision making process to help the clinician to achieve a correct tissue management in the anterior zone.

    Periodontal regeneration: translating biologic concepts into clinical application

    Abstract

    Success in periodontal regenerative surgery is build upon a complex panel of factors. One of the key aspects is soft tissue handling. There are some wound healing biologic principles that indicate a path to the clinicians. Translating these principles into clinical actions allows for the application a “biologically driven surgery”. The build-up starts from the proper preparation of the soft tissues before surgery, goes through the design of clean, appropriate and safe flap and ends into suturing techniques able to provide perfect stability to the wound. Personal skills and a lot of training make surgery predictable.

    The treatment of the anterior maxilla with deficient availability of bone

    Abstract

    The treatment of the vertical bone deficiencies in the anterior maxilla are very critical procedures due three aspects: (i) patient's esthetic expectation, (ii) technical aspects related to the surgical procedures and (iii) biological limitations related to the implant therapy. During the lecture a treatment protocol will be presented which involves the use of autogenous bone computer guided harvested from the mandible to reconstruct vertically the alveolar crest, the use of biomaterial for over-contouring the alveolar profile and an accurate soft tissue management to passivate the flap, first, and than to graft during the second stage implant surgery.

    The full digital workflow

    Abstract

    The recent digital technology offers numerous new and efficient options for planning and conducting implant and restorative treatments. Within digital dentistry cone beam CT scanning and optical impressionning are the first steps towards a digitalization of the patient’s intraoral situation. The resulting digital files are then used for the virtual planning and guiding implant placement. .In the restorative phase digital dentistry is used to virtually design reconstructions, which thereafter can be milled out of prefabricated blanks of different materials with aid of CAD/CAM systems. Evenmore, these CAD/CAM reconstructions can either be made in a centralized production facility or chair-side in the dental office. The digital systems available today offer numerous advantages, like e.g. the precision of the reconstructions. A high number of studies has demonstrated good accuracy of the current subtractive manufacturing, i.e. the computer-aided milling or the grinding of ingots. More recently, additive procedures have been introduced. Stereolithography, laser sintering or printing of materials like wax, resins or metals has shown to be even more precise than the subtractive manufacturing. Furthermore, the additive fabrication of reconstructions may even be more efficient due to the fact, that less time may be needed for the fabrication and no material excess is produced. Finally, the „digital workflow“ and the associated additive procedures, is not only interesting for the planning and fabrication of implant reconstructions but also for a better patient/dentist communication. As an example, 3D prosthetic diagnostic files of digital wax-ups or set-ups may be printed out of resin and used for try-in in the clinical situation.

    The analogue fundamentals

    Abstract

    An ideal treatment plan can often be created only by recourse to a team effort involving the concerted action of various specialists. The cooperation with the orthodontist, the periodontist, the implant clinician, the oral and maxillofacial surgeon and the dental technician is often a determining factor, in the successful outcome of the most complex prosthetic cases. The presentation will discuss the fundamentals required to accomplish a pleasing, functional and long lasting esthetic outcome: treatment plan, team collaboration, understanding of the patient’s needs and selection of restorative materials. In order to perform a an ideal treatment plan, a careful evalutation of all the esthetic parameters such as facial, dento-labial, phonetic, dental and gingival analysis should be combined with an appropriate function and an adequate overjet/overbite value. Thanks to the digital technology, including the use of specific Apps, it is nowadays possible to simplify many steps of the treatment plan, thus furtherly improving the predictablity of the success of the rehabilitation.

    The full digital workflow

    Abstract

    During this lecture, clinical considerations and indications for dental implants will be analyzed in the context of their direct application to esthetic implant-prosthetic rehabilitations. Risk assessment, treatment planning, surgical protocols and esthetic/prosthodontic rehabilitations will be discussed in detail according to different clinical situations. Recommended planning steps and treatment procedures will be presented through scientific evidence. Modern Implant-prosthetic restorations using different implant designs and digital technology call for a harmonious esthetic integration with the pre-existing environment. A scalloped gingival line with distinct papillae and free of any abrupt vertical differences in clinical crown length between anterior implants, is paramount. In this context, biologic considerations affecting normal peri-implant soft tissue integration will be discussed as a major esthetic parameter.

    Objectives: upon completion of this lecture participant should be able to:

    • Familiarize with current trends in esthetic implant dentistry.
    • Assess associated risk factor for suitable treatment planning
    • Widen treatment planning options using a selective approach.

    The formulation of a treatment plan: planned road map or extemporaneous improvisation?

    Abstract

    If mastering any clinical dental procedure requires the acquisition of manual skills through training and practice, how does the dental professional learn to formulate a proper treatment plan? The clinician who undertakes this path has to understand that developing the necessary skills to plan a therapy that takes into account all patient-specific variables requires the acquisition of not only a good dose of experience, but also of evidence-based information on the predictability of the different clinical procedures, and an understanding of their correct sequence. If you are unsure about the approach to have when facing a challenging clinical case or if you often find yourself improvising, this lecture will provide you with a clear roadmap to treatment planning.

    The biological and clinical keys for bone regeneration

    Abstract

    GBR has broadened the indications for implants to jaw regions exhibiting bone defects. Clinical and scientific evidence demonstrates the successful use of GBR to regenerate missing bone at implant sites. Recent studies report the long-term success of implants placed simultaneously with or after GBR. Many of the materials and techniques currently available for bone regeneration of alveolar ridge defects have been developed years ago. Recently, new materials and techniques have evolved. Many of them, however, have not sufficiently been documented in clinical studies. The aim of this presentation is to summarize the scientific basis of GBR and the accepted clinical procedures. A classification of bone defects will be presented aiming at simplifying the decision-making process regarding the strategy for bone augmentation. Finally, an outlook into actual research and possible future options related to bone augmentation will be provided.

    Flapless, immediate implant placement in the esthetic zone

    Abstract

    Dr. Arndt Happe, DS, PhD Immediate implant placement is a concept that is discussed highly controversial. However there is a high acceptance for the concept regarding patients and clinicians, because of its efficiency. Low morbidity and short overall treatment time are obvious advantages. From literature today we gained a clear understanding of the biology around implants placed in fresh extraction sockets. Also studies identified risk factors for the typical complications such as soft tissue recession and loss of tissue volume and current concepts involve hard and soft tissue management protocols that may prevent these complications.

    Use of autogenous bone grafts

    Abstract

    Management of the atrophic edentulous ridges constitutes a challenge for the reconstructive surgeon. Different clinical scenarios, demand tailored solutions based in scientific evidence, personal experience and skills. In our view modern preprosthetic surgery should be based in three principles: “Preserve, Use, and Reconstruct”. In the last few years we are witnessing a paradigm shift in the way we approach atrophic scenarios. We have evolved from rather aggressive treatments which included in most cases extraoral sources for bone grafting, to minimally invasive protocols which combine autogenous bone from intraoral sites, and biomaterials. The use of available bone to anchor fixations can also solve a number of complex scenarios. In our presentation we will discuss our management protocol related to the different atrophy stages.

    The treatment of the anterior maxilla with deficiency of bone

    Abstract

    The loss of attachment on a single tooth in the interproximal area creates a tremendous problem in the esthetic zone. When more then one tooth is lost in this area, the reconstructive surgeon already faces a vertical deficiency of bone. These two statements clearly demonstrate how important the maintenance of periodontium and teeth in the esthetic is to prevent the bone deficiency in this delicate area. The prevention of this major problem, as we discuss here, should always be in our minds.

    Therefore, this presentation will demonstrate some clinical solutions off the beaten track. Maintenance of the periodontal attachment  may help us in the future to achieve great esthetic results on a predictable basis in the future. It is obviously that this lecture does not present clinical concepts based on external evidence. The intention of this video session is to depict a new concept which may help us to handle problems in the esthetic zone in a very elegant way. A more predictable approach that is not as complex, not as painful and not as expensive as current techniques.

    PEEK implants: Ready for clinical use?

    Abstract

    Titanium and its alloys has been the material of choice for endosseous implants over the last decades. However, titanium has been reported to exhibit a variety of problems due to the high elastic modulus, wear debris and ion leakage. Because of this, alternative materials has been introduced in the orthopedic and trauma field with promising outcomes. One advancing material is polyetheretherketone (PEEK) which is a thermoplastic, tooth-colored polymer with an elastic modulus in the region of trabecular bone. However, pure PEEK is relatively bioinert and in contrast to titanium it possess limited osteoconductive properties. The bioactivity of PEEK can be improved by compounding the PEEK or coating the surface with calcium phosphate biomaterials. Some of these techniques are more successful than others. The aim of this lecture is to present the outcome of the current research on PEEK and highlight its properties as a future dental implant material.

    The treatment of anterior maxilla with deficient available bone

    Abstract

    Guided bone regeneration to optimize anterior peri-implant gingival esthetics in presence of vertical defects is always challenging. While it is possible to regenerate bone vertically, the challenge is can the final few vertically millimeters be regenerated to the point where it need to be? This often will mean the difference between esthetic looking implant restoration with optimal gingival architecture verses long crowns without papilla or the need of artificial gingiva. This presentation will evaluate bone regenerative alternative and prosthetic manipulation for vertical maxillary anterior defects.

    Ceramic implants as a real alternative to titanium today? Material aspects and clinical outcomes.

    Abstract

    This presentation is a tandem lecture with Christel Larsson from the Department of Materials Science and Technology at Malmö University. Christel Larsson will present and discuss aspects on similarities and differences regarding mechanical and physical properties of titanium and zirconia respectively, as well as aspects on biocompatibility. The clinical outcomes part will be to elaborate on the clinical application of zirconia oral implants and will present an update of the scientific background of zirconia implants, using also data from in-vitro laboratory and animal investigations. There seems to be no difference regarding osseointegration with the newer generation of zirconia implants. Furthermore, the short term results of certain zirconia implants are promising with implant survival rates similar to titanium implants (when one-piece implants are considered at the moment). Nevertheless, long-term data comprising a duration of more than five years of recall are scarce yet.

    The analog clinician with a combined digital-analog technician.

    Abstract

    No doubt digital technology is here and is penetrating rapidly, but wether we implement it in our daily work is still a decision that we have to take .

It goes beyond question that digital technology has improved enormously diagnostic tools such as radiology. Nowadays, for instance, 3-D imaging is routinely performed in many dental offices.
 Also, digital aesthetic diagnosis and digital flow of prosthodontic treatments are in constant yet vertiginous development at the clinical and Laboratory Level.

Doubtlessly, when working in the laboratory, CAD CAM systems are tools that provide versatility and precision. However, once in the dental clinic the introduction of this technology is somehow more complex, as for the usage of intraoral digital scanning and manipulation. In this conference we want to show you what is our involvement with this technology and how we implement it to maintain maximum quality and efficiency in our daily practice.

    Focus on implant selection, surgical placement and restorative design

    Abstract

    The aim of this presentation is to evaluate surgical techniques for bone reconstruction in severely atrophic jaws due to perimplatitis. The objective of the clinician is to follow a procedure that reduces invasiveness and provides patient satisfaction. Recently, a new surgical procedures, the “Fence Technique” and the "Wafer Technique", were developed where the volume of the bone augmentation is planned in advance. These techniques allow for the formation of large quantities of bone in both the horizontal and vertical dimension with limited discomfort for the patient. Space making is obtained and maintained by osteosynthesis plaques and collagen membranes, to be filled with autologous bone alone or the combination of bone substitute/autologous bone. In addition, the presentation deals with the management of peri-implant soft tissue in terms of techniques applied prior to or during abutment connection. The importance of the prosthetic design and the emergency profile will be described in details.

    The socket without buccal bone wall

    Abstract

    In the last decades, immediate implants and immediate provisional restorations in esthetic zone have become a frequent treatment option in the clinical daily routine. Despite a divergence of views in the scientific literature regarding the medium to long term aesthetic results, the effectiveness of this approach is not disputed from a functional standpoint. The most critical point of this debate is undoubtedly related to the aesthetic risk of developing midfacial recession, leading to a poor aesthetic outcome. Among the described risk indicators, we can highlight the presence of a thin or damaged buccal bone wall, which represents, according to several studies, a prevailing condition in the majority of alveolar post-extraction sites. There are different types of alveolar defects, and their identification is a critical point to decide on the alveolar reconstruction protocol associated or not with an immediate implant placement. The reconstruction of the buccal bone wall defect is unquestionably an important parameter in the search for aesthetic excellence. However, it is only one among several factors that must be controlled in order to achieve the ultimate treatment goal. The aim of this presentation is to depict a treatment and evaluation protocol based on four parameters, and to propose a surgical-prostho concept for the treatment of pos-extraction socket with immediate implants.

    Flap design based on peri-implant defect characteristics

    Abstract

    Studies evaluating dental implant therapy have mainly focused on clinical and radiological outcomes. The reporting on “patient reported outcome measures” (PROMs) is, however, also considered important (Calvert et al. 2013). Still, few studies reporting such data are available (Abrahamsson et al. 2016). A qualitative interview study by Johannsen et al. (2012a) focused on the views on dental implant therapy among patients diagnosed with severe periodontitis. It was reported that poor periodontal conditions affected the daily life and well-being of patients and when realizing that certain teeth had to be extracted a period of fear, shame and denial followed. Dental implant therapy resulted in improvement of oral function and appearance, together with a recovery in overall daily life functioning and well-being. Moreover, most patients considered the treatment to be worth the financial costs, although expensive and that implants were expected to sustain for life. Although reported survival rates of dental implants are high (Pjetursson et al. 2007), complications may occur. A biological complication that may jeopardize the long-term function of dental implants is peri-implantitis (Berglundh et al. 2002). Peri-implantitis is a disease affecting peri-implant tissues. It is characterized by bleeding/suppuration on probing together with loss of supporting bone. Recent evaluations on the prevalence of the disease indicate that about 15% of implant-carrying patients present with significant peri-implantitis problems (Derks et al., 2016). Treatment of peri-implantitis aims at eliminating the infection. Pre-clinical in-vivo experiments have demonstrated that resolution of peri-implantitis is possible following surgical therapy without the use of adjunctive systemic antibiotics and that implant surface characteristics influence outcomes (Carcuac et al., 2015). Similar results were presented in a large randomized controlled clinical trial on 100 patients (Carcuac et al., 2016). It was reported that outcomes of surgical treatment of peri-implantantitis were influenced by the type of targeted implant. A further goal in treatment of peri-implantitis is to restore supporting tissues lost during disease progression. Such a goal is not only important for the longevity of the implant but also for the aesthetic outcome of the treatment procedure. As indicated in a systematic review (Khoshkam et al., 2013), it is currently not known whether reconstructive treatment procedures of peri-implantitis-associated osseous defects are predictable and to what extent the use of bone graft materials is beneficial. There are two publications in the field using a controlled research design for the evaluation of the effect of using bone graft materials in such cases. Wohlfart et al. (2012) and Jepsen et al. (2016) used porous titanium granules in the treatment of peri-implantitis-associated bone defects and reported that no differences in clinical outcomes were observed between test and control procedures. Both studies, however, also reported that analysis of radiographs indicated that the use of the graft material resulted in an enhanced defect fill but also that interpretation of radiographic findings suffered from the inability to distinguish between graft material and newly formed bone. A further consideration to the reported findings is the lack of assessments regarding recession of the mucosal margin. In a recent observational study on the use of bone substitutes in the treatment of peri-implantitis-related infra-bony defects, Roccuzzo et al. (2016) concluded that successful treatment of peri-implantitis is possible, but also emphasized the need of well-designed controlled clinical trials using patient samples with sufficient power. Taken together, randomized controlled clinical trials on reconstructive surgical therapy of peri-implantitis need to include recession of the soft tissue margin and the tissue quality as outcome variables and carefully address the influence of the bone defect morphology when assessing outcomes.

    Abstract

    Nowadays, Zirconium dioxide abutments, crown and bridges are used widely to restore dental implants in the anterior region. This material in general has better esthetic characteristics than metal abutments and when are well designed respecting thickness and height have shown well biomechanical behavior. Regarding crown and bridges, after a long period in which some chipping of the veneer seems to be its main problem, new formulations including the so called translucent zirconia as well as monolithic solutions has improved the esthetic and mechanical features. Although these new options have solved part of the limitations of this material still some important considerations have to be taken into account to lead to a stable solution. During this presentation we will review the most important clinical and mechanical aspects to be considered at lab and clinical level regarding a successful use of this material.

    The treatment of peri-implant soft tissue deficiencies in the anterior maxilla.

    Abstract

    Successful modern therapy can no longer be judged by whether or not the implants osseointegrate. One of the greatest challenges facing clinicians is to obtain an ideal soft tissue integration that mimics a perfect gingival contour. This is particularly difficult in compromised sites, due to trauma, atrophy, periodontal disease and/or infection. Even though several studies have shown optimal implant survival rates, the clinical results in terms of long-term soft tissues stability are often less than ideal. This program will show that careful selection of bone-grafting techniques and/or soft tissue augmentation procedures can, in most cases, produce long-lasting esthetic results. Educational Objectives: • Evaluate hard and soft tissues to achieve optimal esthetic; • Determine the role of risk and prognostic factors; • Identify the situations where soft tissue grating is indicated; • Recognize when GBR and/or GTR is necessary.

    The restorative treatment of the partially edentullous periodontitis patient.

    Abstract

    Clinicians are often faced with complex decissions in their daily practice regarding whether or not to maintain periodontally involved teeth, to restore teeth that have a questionable prognosis or to extract them and place dental implants. Regardless of the decission made each option has advantages and dissadvantages that must be taken into consideration to satisfy the patients demands and expectations. This presentation will address the issues related to conservative treatment involving the preservation of teeth that have a questionable periodontal prognosis and the use of periodontal regeneration and periodontal surgery procedures to improve the long-term prognosis of periodontally affected teeth.

    Battle of concepts. The restorative treatment of the partially edentulous periodontitis patient

    Abstract

    Periodontitis is a multifactorial chronic inflammatory disease and, if left untreated, it may progress until tooth loss. The treatment of periodontitis is highly predictable. However, in the advance forms of periodontitis, we have to deal with teeth with an unfavourable prognosis or with partial edentulism. Several treatment options have been proposed depending on the philosophy of maintaining teeth and the fact that these patients are in a higher risk of developing peri-implantitis. The most conservative approach is going to treat periodontitis with the objective to maintain all the teeth and to restore the missing ones with fixed partial or adhesive prosthesis, whereas the most aggressive method is going to extract the teeth to replace them with implants. The objective of this lecture is to present an advanced case in which an intermediate approach has been used. Different modalities of periodontal surgery have been applied to maintain the teeth. On the other hand, the missing teeth have been replaced with dental implants. This treatment approach will be defend over different treatment options, presenting the results after 10 years of follow-up.

    Apically positioned flaps and implantoplasty

    Abstract

    Surgical treatment of peri-implantitis commonly involves open flap debridement including a thorough granulation tissue removal from the defect area and a decontamination of the exposed implant surface areas. This basic procedure may either be combined with augmentative (e.g. bone fillers/ autografts, guided bone regeneration) and/ or resective (e.g. pocket elimination, bone recontouring, implantoplasty) approaches. In particular, implantoplasty has been proposed as a procedure to smoothen endosseous implant parts passing the bony envelope, with the aim to render those surfaces less attractive for plaque biofilm formation. The presentation will critically assess the effectiveness and potential clinical indications for resective therapy of peri-implantitis.

    The use of implant-supported prostheses to restore function after orthodontic therapy

    Abstract

    Orthodontic therapy can be used not only for aligning teeht but also for facilitating prosthodontic and implant therapy; furthermore, it can help developing the correct base needed for recovering an esthetic and functional dentition.  By dental movements, we can open spaces for placing implants and place teeth in the correct position in their arches. But also, when moving teeth, bone can be created and soft tissues displaced, thus facilitating the surgeon and the restorative dentist job and improving esthetics and function. Obviously, there are biological boundaries that we have to know and respect  by the correct study and selection of the cases and following the guidelines found in the literature.

    New Perspectives on Ridge Augmentation

    Abstract

    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. Patient selection, patient preparation for surgery, precise surgical techniques and postoperative management are the key factors in reducing the rate of bone graft complications. To predictably achieve successful bone augmentation angiogenesis, clot stability and space maintenance should be employed. Another important factor is flap closure during bone augmentation. The key to achieving wound closure is not only the clinician’s ability in obtaining tension free release flap but also good soft tissue quality and quantity. In an attempt to achieve wound closure and hence graft stability, the buccal mucosa are often broadly released, and this often results in a severe apical translocation of the mucogingival line, loss of vestibule and keratinized mucosa (KM). Recent research on vertical and horizontal ridge augmentation as well as soft tissue reconstruction will be presented. Utilizing these procedures may lessen the need of harvested autogenous bone and may generally lead to decreased morbidity and therefore increased patient comfort and satisfaction associated with these regenerative procedures. Learning objectives: 1. Understand the biology of the incorporation of the bone graft. 2. Understand the surgical anatomy of the floor of the mouth 3. Learn the surgical principles of ridge augmentation surgery 4. Learn the surgical principles of the reconstruction of the vestibule and keratinized tissue after ridge augmentation.

    Abstract

    Tailor made implants for the individual patient are the text step in implant dentistry. Fact or Fantasy?

    Digital implant planning based on software and (CB)CT scans is becoming state of the art in Oral implantology. New technology and integration of existing technology with new technology creates new approaching to this field of Oral health Care. Industry still provides us with cylindrical implants with prescribed diameters and lengths to which we must adjust our planning. In this presentation we will show how technology can be used to design and 3D print individual implants for individual patients based on the dimensions of the bone at the implant site. This treatment approach can reduce the number of augmentation procedures and widen the scope for the indication of dental implants for individual patients.

    Is conventional still future - oriented?

    Abstract

    The continuous and rapid development in digital dentistry has allowed implant-supported monolithic crowns and short span FDPs to benefit from the digital workflow without the need for a physical master cast. However, when treating a severely reduced dentition or an edentulous arch with implant-supported restorations, conventional concepts are still necessary. The quality of the final restoration benefits from a conventional setup, impression and maxillomandibular relationship record. Also, the dental technology process for the resulting fixed or removable restoration is dependent on a combination of elaborated conventional and digital workflows. Even if in many clinical situations, a conventional or a digital workflow are realizable, it has to be critically discussed that for a digital workflow in short time periods, hardware and software updates are necessary. Therefore, it can be concluded that especially in complex clinical situations, a conventional workflow will still be essential.

    “The treatment of peri-implant soft tissue deficiencies in the anterior maxilla”

    Abstract

    Although the periodontal literature has done a great effort through out the last 40 years to study, define, classify and establish adequate protocols for the treatment of gingival recessions around teeth, very little has been done yet to develop similar descriptions for the "soft tissue deficiencies" around implant supporters restorations. It is the purpose of this interactive video presentation to present the treatment of various situations in the aesthetic zone where the inadequate amount of soft tissue creates an aesthetic and sometimes functional problem for these patients. Minimally invasive approach in contrast to higher morbidity produces will be presented to solve undesirable situations, as well as short and long term stable results. We will also discuss the etiology of these conditions and possible prevention mesures.

    What are the limits of immediate implant placement and immediate restoration? - The approach to posterior wide sockets

    Abstract

    Today’s implant treatment has to match a variety of requests of restoring a healthy situation as well as matching high aspirations concerning functionality and esthetics. Simultaneously and especially in times of patient related outcome measurements, expeditious restorative provision and achieving treatment goals by less invasive procedures and a minimum of pain get more and more into the focus of modern implant therapy. Comprehensive knowledge of different ridge preservation techniques, limiting factors and influencing criteria is inevitable to provide patients satisfiable treatment outcomes in a long-term. This lecture wants to give an overview on current surgical techniques of implant related tissue management, biological factors influencing the long-term stability of peri-implant hard and soft tissues and opportunities and risks of modern treatment approaches. From the surgical step-by-step procedures till to the design of the final restoration important measures will be discussed.
