What if a prosthetic frame could influence quality of life?

There is increased interest in the long term clinical outcomes and quality of life of patients treated with a high performance polymer for the framework material for full-arch implant-supported dental prosthetics, rather than the traditionally used metal or ceramic materials.

The presentations will focus on laboratory experiences and clinical outcomes with JUVORATM full-arch implant supported prostheses on edentulous patients.

Moderator:  Marcus Jarman-Smith

ISQ as an objective key value for digital workflows and the importance of resonance frequency analysis guiding clinical decisions for complex cases
Steven Eckert (USA), Giorgio Tabanella (Italy), Luis Cuadrado (Spain)

Moderator: Marcus Dagnelid (Sweden)

Patient focused Implant Dentistry is changing and protocols especially around immediate loading are being redefined to accommodate the benefits of digital planning/ diagnostic tools. There is therefore a need for an objective tool to guide and optimize the whole implant treatment, valid for complex as well as simple cases. These speakers represent more than 30 years of combined experience with Osstell and the ISQ scale in daily practice and will in this unique and interactive lecture discuss the process of osseointegration success in various treatment indications, illustrated by cases and data.

B.O.P.T.: innovative techniques on natural teeth and implants
Ignazio Loi (Italy)

The B.O.P.T. (Biologically Oriented Preparation Technique) is a simplified prosthetic procedure that permits to operate in clinical cases already treated at a prosthetic level. New concepts belonging to this technique will be analysed: the controlled invasion of the sulcus, the adaptation to the emerging profiles and the selective abrasion. To evidence the long-term stability of the aesthetic results obtained with B.O.P.T. cases will be shown step by step, as well as follow-ups. The B.O.P.T. concepts have been transferred to implantology with the creation of shoulderless posts. The soft tissues thickening allows to obtain a greater stability and an excellent aesthetic result in the marginal zone. Further evolution has been the realization of a new transgingival implant: PRAMA.

New treatment methods in soft tissue management
Giovanni Zucchelli (Italy), Mariano Sanz (Spain), Daniel Thoma (Switzerland)

Moderator: Christoph Hämmerle (Switzerland)

The first part of the Geistlich Symposium will focus on optimal flap designs for soft tissue augmentation, key factors for successful healing and current trends on how to handle soft tissue dehiscences. The following presentations will give deeper insights into soft tissue management procedures at implant sites and the coverage of recessions – all in the light of the question: “When do autogenous grafts remain the gold standard – and when can they be replaced by innovative biomaterial solutions?” An interactive panel discussion focusing on treatment planning of a clinical case will round off the symposium.

Patient centric treatment protocols: prosthetic and surgical solutions for predictable results in esthetic and fully edentulous cases

Implant therapy has proven to provide not only long-term success, but also predictable treatment outcomes, and pleasing esthetics. Nevertheless, esthetic cases and fully edentulous jaws with substantial bone resorption still present significant challenges to successful oral rehabilitation.
The presentations will focus on the techniques to treat complex esthetic cases as well as on the Straumann® Edentulous Solutions designed to enable personalized treatment protocols, taking into consideration patient expectations and unique anatomic, clinical situations. Particular attention will be paid to patient centric outcomes, treatment planning, prosthetic and surgical protocols, recent literature, and case reviews.

Patient centric treatment protocols with Straumann® Pro Arch for fully edentulous cases.

Pushing the limits of minimally invasive techniques in implant dentistry
Eduardo Anitua (Spain)

Modern implant dentistry is moving toward implant treatment completion in shorter time, optimize cost and evidence-supported predictability. This trend change is the net outcome of collaboration between companies, researchers and clinicians. This human convergent work will be presented in this session where new strategies for treatment planning and execution will be the essence of cutting-edge presentations of several leading researchers and clinicians.

The way to Itaka: from vision to clinical implication.
Dieter Bosshardt (Switzerland), Ofer Moses (Israel)

Revolutionary surgical solutions while exploring implant housing biology require combination of vision, open minds, precise animal models and surgical skills.
Collaboration with experts in histology is crucial to obtain high-quality results, and their correct interpretation ultimately indicates innovative implications for academic and clinical use.

Digital Flow in the multidisciplinary patient environment with the help of iTero and Invisalign
Mariano SantaMaría (Spain)

In the last decade, the introduction of scanners into our clinical routine has allowed us to obtain intraoral images without the need to use impressions. In addition, the application of the existing Digital CAD-CAM technology has meant a dramatic change in the planning and treatment of our patients. In this environment, the intraoral scanner iTero allows us to obtain a strategic framework for orthodontic treatment (through Invisalign) and restorative (through CAD-CAM systems) in the multidisciplinary patient.
