Symposium Topics

- Patient selection for regenerative success
- Extraction management and decision making for immediate versus delayed implants
- Discussion of multiple treatment options for extraction site management, including but not limited to using dense PTFE membranes
- Review the main biological and clinical events that take place after tooth extraction
- Discuss the role that different local and systemic factors may play in the healing dynamics following tooth loss
- Understand the rationale and scientific evidence supporting alveolar ridge preservation via socket grafting to minimize alveolar ridge reduction after tooth extraction
- Presentation of the results of a new randomized clinical trial comparing tooth extraction alone with alveolar ridge preservation using a combination allograft and dense PTFE membranes
- "Open Barrier Membrane Technique"
* a minimally invasive GBR technique using non-expanded, high-density PTFE (d-PTFE) membrane without primary closure for ridge preservation and ridge augmentation
* utilizing a combination of graft materials, including mineralized and demineralized allografts, PRP, and enamel matrix derivative
* factors for achieving success, including diagnosis, treatment planning, several biologic principles that must be followed, careful execution of the surgical treatment, and postoperative infection control
- Sinus augmentation technique, biomaterials, and keys to success using the crestal approach
- ‘Everyday’ GBR cases, including the learning curve using dPTFE
- Treatment planning for hard and soft tissue grafting in vertical ridge augmentation
- Vertical bone augmentation surgical techniques
- “Free Curtain Flap” design in vertical ridge augmentation
- Selection of graft materials, membranes, fixation screws/tacks, and sutures, with rationale and review of available evidence, in vertical ridge augmentation procedures
- Autogenous bone harvesting – regions and techniques
- Soft tissue grafting techniques with vertical bone augmentation
- Double-layer suturing technique for obtaining and maintaining primary closure in alveolar ridge augmentation procedures
- Provisionalization of surgical area following alveolar ridge augmentation
- Patient post-op instructions following alveolar ridge augmentation
- Regenerative healing and implant placement timelines following alveolar ridge augmentation
- Strategies for minimizing and treating complications in guided bone regeneration
- Managing membrane exposures in vertical ridge augmentation procedures
- Avoiding sloughing of the flap in alveolar ridge augmentation procedures
- Superior outcomes in implant dentistry through change in the anatomy of the bone and gingiva supporting and surrounding the implant
- Methods of adding, subtracting, or modifying soft and hard tissues in order to develop the best results
- From ‘mixed success’ to highly predictable, lessons learned in performing GBR ridge augmentation procedures

Symposium Highlights

The symposium will feature optional hands-on workshops and presentations by world-renowned speakers. The three in-depth limited-attendance hands-on workshops are offered Thursday, March 31. Topics include: advanced hard and soft tissue regenerative techniques in vertical ridge augmentation with Dr. Istvan Urban, socket grafting and guided bone regeneration in various single-tooth implant scenarios with Dr. Sascha Jovanovic, and state of the art ridge expansion with Dr. Dan Cullum.
