TECHNIQUE & LONG-TERM STABILITY OF AUTOGENOUS BLOCK GRAFTS & MAXILLARY RESECTION VS. AUGMENTATION

CHAIRED BY: BEVERLY HILLS PERIODONTAL & IMPLANT SYMPOSIUM
Sunday, January 19, 2014
2pm – 5pm

3 CE Units

SPEAKERS: DR. HESSAM NOWZARI & DR. MAMALY RESHAD

Target Audience: Dentists, Hygienists

SYNOPSIS:

Autogenous bone graft is reliable. Mandibular cortical grafts remain the gold standard in the restoration of intraoral bone volume. They are convenient sources of bone grafting, allow for a dense cortical quality graft, do not produce immune reactions, and are incorporated by osteoclastic resorption with a short healing period when compared with other methods of bone repair.

At this meeting surgical modalities aimed at enhancing bone structure and harmonizing tissue structures will be presented. The amount of oral autogenous bone that can be safely harvested and the related techniques are analyzed.

In contemporary implant dentistry, site development in the anterior maxilla has been synonymous with aesthetics. Although preservative procedures may be the right choice in many situations, there are others where resection may provide better esthetics, biology and function. A critical analysis of unhealthy, non-physiologic and unesthetic situations will be provided, with particular attention to the sagittal plane. This analysis will shed light on which situations a resective procedure in the anterior maxilla is the appropriate choice. Based on proper diagnostic principles, a classification system followed by guidelines will be provided. The aim of this presentation is to introduce an alternative treatment strategy that may be beneficial in the treatment of patients that require restoration of the edentulous maxilla with implant-supported prosthesis.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Discuss techniques and the healing dynamics of the autogenous bone graft.
  • Explain the various factors affecting graft incorporation to achieve an optimal outcome.
  • Complications and resolution.

3 CE Units

SPEAKERS: DR. FRED MONEMPOUR, DR. TOTA SHIMIZU

Target Audience: Dentists, Hygienists and Assistants

SYNOPSIS:

CT Scans have been utilized for years in implant therapy. In recent years they have also been utilized in endodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. Their enhancement of pathologic conditions has greatly influenced how we can treat the previously unidentifiable problems. Problems ranging from resorptive defects to missed canals to small periapical lesions not identifiable on conventional / digital radiographs will be discussed.

Microscope, together with CBCT, has become an integral part of clinical dentistry, which is proven by the fact that more than 90% of American Endodontists are using microscope routinely.

Nevertheless, its prevalence among GP is still one-digit percent, unfortunately. This presentation will describe how specialists are using the microscope to become efficient in treatment, and how GPs can incorporate the microscope in their daily activities and become more productive in a different way than specialists.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Understand how to read CBCT scans in Endodontics.
  • Different scenarios CBCT can help enhance patient care.
  • How to utilize CBCT for greater profit in your practice.
  • Know how specialists are utilizing the microscope.

Sub-Topic: Hair Loss – What can you do about it?

SPEAKER: DR. WILLIAM RASSMAN

Target Audience: Dentists, Hygienists and Assistants

SYNOPSIS:

Hair loss affects 50% of men before the age of 50, and 50% of women over the age of 50. The impact of looking older and less healthy is a major problem for those impacted with hair loss and the options for treating it have been limited to topical concealers and surgical procedures. Medications are effective for slowing down or halting male genetic hair loss, but few real good treatments are available for women. There has been many recent advances for managing hair loss for men which are so good, that men who promptly recognize that they have a problem can manage it reasonably well through their lifetime, many without surgery. Unfortunately, good solutions for preventing women's hair loss are not available today; however, some new non-surgical advances can address the thinning hair of many women. I will discuss the various surgical and non-surgical solutions for hair loss with many pictures showing what can be done today.

OBJECTIVES:

  • To understand the causes of hair loss for men and women.
  • To understand the medical and surgical treatments of hair loss.
  • To understand the treatment options and costs associated with treatment.

His greatest accomplishment was his pioneering work which led to his introduction of the Intra-aortic Balloon pump in 1969 where he presented the technology at a meeting before 800 cardiologists. This device is now used as the standard heart assist pump in every coronary care unit in the world, saving thousands of lives every year. He also developed medical devices for the cardiac field in his fellowship years. In 2001, he formed Maven Biotechnologies (now holding 23 patents) which developed a 'Lab-on-a-chip' technology and has developed and patented surgical tools for hair transplantation, including the use of a robot for hair transplantation (now marketed).

3 CE Units

SPEAKER: DR. EDWARD FEINBERG

Target Audience: Dentists

PART 2: Saturday, January 18, 2014
2pm – 5pm

3 CE Units each

SPEAKER: DR. ROBERT CONVISSAR

Target Audience: Dentists

SYNOPSIS:

Dentists have a variety of wavelengths to choose from when deciding which laser is most appropriate for his or her practice. Some wavelengths are perfectly suited for periodontal therapy, while other wavelengths may be more appropriate for a prosthetics-driven practice. The use of lasers for specific procedures found in everyday fixed, removable and implant prosthetic cases will be highlighted. Since the basis of a successful prosthetic reconstruction is a healthy periodontal foundation, the use of lasers for non-surgical, surgical, and regenerative periodontics will also be discussed.

Specific procedures to be discussed in both the adult and pediatric dental patient include:

  1. Soft and hard tissue crown lengthening
  2. Cordless gingival troughing
  3. Cosmetic recontouring of gingiva prior to laminate placement
  4. Treatment of altered passive eruption cases prior to eruption
  5. Peri-implant soft tissue modification and treatment of peri-implantitis
  6. Torus and tuberosity reduction (both hard and soft tissue)
  7. Removal of epulis without scar/contraction of the vestibule
  8. Treatment of chronic denture stomatitis
  9. Residual ridge surgery/vestibuloplasty
  10. Ovate pontic site formation
  11. Long term management of the perio-prosthetic patient
  12. Hard tissue lasers – are we ready to replace the turbine handpiece?
  13. Frenectomy
  14. Gingivectomy
  15. Periodontal regeneration surgery/non membrane laser guided tissue regeneration

The participant will perform many of the above procedures during the wet lab on animal jaws.

OBJECTIVES:

Upon completion of this course, participants

  • Will be familiar with the use of lasers for specific procedures found in a periodontal and prosthetics-driven practice.
  • Will be able to incorporate this knowledge into a basis for determining which laser wavelength is most appropriate for their practice.
