8:00 – 8:30 am

Retreatment of Failed Implant Cases

Costa Nicolopoulos, BDS, FFD (SA) MFOS

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) identify failed implants requiring removal and replacement; 2) discuss the concept of immediate replacement of failed implants in the same or adjacent site; and 3) describe the protocol of immediate loading of replaced implants.

8:30 – 9:00 am

To Save or Remove an Ailing Implant?

Paul Rosen, DMD, MS

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) list what factors would support trying to retain implants with severe peri-implantitis; 2) describe what factors should be considered when selecting to remove the implant with severe peri-implantitis; and 3) discuss what options for treatment may be used to save dental implants with severe peri-implantitis.

9:00 – 9:30 am

Treatment of Soft Tissue Defects Around Dental Implants

Anton Sculean, DMD, MS, PhD

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) discuss the potential causes for facial peri-implant mucosal defects; 2) provide the rationale for treating facial peri-implant mucosal defects along with the indications and contraindications; and 3) explain how soft tissue defects/mucosa recession at dental implant can be treated.

9:30 – 10:00 am

Using Dental Lasers for Implant Surface Detoxification to Promote Treatment of Peri-implantitis

Hom-Lay Wang, DDS, MSD, PhD

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) discuss the most updated recent evidence related to dental lasers; 2) list the protocol of how to use lasers for peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis treatment; and 3) determine when and when not to use dental laser for the management of peri-implant related diseases.

10:30 – 11:00 am

Gingival Augmentation Options for Esthetic Zone Implants

Sonia Leziy, DDS

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) identify the role of digitally planned treatment by ‘previewing’ soft tissue outcomes; 2) describe the role of new grafting procedures and material alternatives and where they apply… and importantly, where they don’t; and 3) recognize when autogenous tissues must be considered, and how they should be procured for long-term stability.

11:00 am – noon

Using Technology for Full-arch Immediate Loading

Brent Allan, BDS, MDSc; Glen Liddelow, BDSc, MScD

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) implement pre-operative 3D photography and dense correspondence planning of facial form and support for predictable esthetics; 2) describe the use of 3D imaging and digital planning for full arch rehabilitation; 3) explain the use of guided and navigated surgery for full arch implant placement; and 4) discuss provisional and definitive bridge framework concepts and construction.
