Alveolar Contour Changes Following Tooth Extraction
Thiago Morelli, DDS, MS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) demonstrate the three-dimensional remodeling process after tooth extraction; 2) quantify the benefits of socket grafting after tooth extraction; and 3) evaluate the use of collagen 3D-matrix during socket grafting procedures.
1:50 - 2:10 pm
The Next Level for Hard and Soft Tissue Regeneration in Esthetic Implant Sites
Ronald Jung, DMD, PhD
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) describe the long-term outcomes of implants placed with GBR after more than 10 years; 2) explain the next level of bone grafting by using volume stable graft materials; and 3) judge the effectiveness of current soft tissue substitutes and their availability in the clinic.
2:10 - 2:30 pm
Immediate Implant Placement and Restoration in Intact Sockets
Ernesto Lee, DMD
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) implement a predictable protocol for immediate implant placement and provisionalization; 2) recognize complex esthetic scenarios that require treatment with interdisciplinary therapy; and 3) identify those adjunctive interdisciplinary procedures necessary to develop intact sockets prior to immediate implant placement.
2:30 - 3:00 pm
Implant Placement and Grafting in Patients with Damaged Sockets and Ridges
Guido Sarnachiaro, DDS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) diagnose the type of socket, based on the labial bone presence; 2) perform a guided bone regeneration procedure to regenerate the labial bone when absent; and 3) fabricate a screw-retained provisional to contain the material and manage the soft tissue architecture.
