AAP 108th Annual Meeting | Phoenix 2022

Visit us at booth 1315!

For this year’s annual meeting, Dr. Alan Meltzer DMD, MScD will be presenting a lecture entitled:

“Full Arch Immediate Implant Restoration in Challenging Situations”

Lecture Summary:

Today, the use of full arch immediate implant restoration is entering the realm of mainstream treatment. Some believe that removal of teeth and their restorations is the conclusion of a patient’s dental problems. Some even feel that by giving a patient an oral irrigator they are set for life with no need for professional maintenance. With 30 plus years of implant dentistry behind me, I have learned that in some cases four implants may be enough, while in other cases it is a formula for disaster. A fixed restoration on four implants can easily become no fixed restoration on three implants. Case selection, case design, implant selection, abutment selection along with proper hard and soft tissue evaluation and treatment become the keys for success. Finally, designing a final prosthesis and formulation of a proper maintenance program is mandatory. Let us not trade our patients’ dental problems for implant problems and create unrealistic expectations.

Learning Objectives:

·        Diagnosis, Case design, implant, and abutment selection

·        Pre-treatment soft and hard tissue management

·        Execution of treatment, post operative care, long term maintenance

DASK Hands-on Workshop at the ICOI World Congress | Las Vegas 2022

Visit our booth or attend our DASK hands-on workshop.

Dr. Stephen S. Wallace is joining Dentium for this year’s congress to present a hands-on workshop about surgical techniques in maxillary sinus surgery entitled:

"Development of Surgical Techniques in Maxillary Sinus Surgery"

Lecture Summary:

Maxillary sinus elevation has become the most predictable technique for increasing bone volume in the maxillary posterior sextants for the placement of dental implants. Following the development of trans crestal sinus elevation techniques, the lateral window technique still remains as the “go to” technique for the more advanced cases of bone loss and secondary reparative procedures.

This presentation will highlight the evolution of the lateral window technique from the early rotary technique through piezoelectric surgery, the DASK technique, the simplified antrostomy design, and the low window technique.

The evolution of surgical technique follows the desire to create a more simplified protocol both for the surgeon (fewer complications, reduced treatment time) and the patient (reduced treatment time, reduced postsurgical morbidity).

Along the way, the major complications that occur with this procedure will be addressed both as to avoidance and treatment

Learning Objectives:

·        Attendees will learn the advantages of multiple surgical techniques

·        Attendees will observe how improved outcomes can be achieved by taking advantage of multiple surgical protocols

·        Attendees will be presented with complication avoidance treatment

The theme of the meeting was “State of the Art Implant Dentistry” and focused on comprehensive strategies for implant planning, strategic implant placement, GBR prosthetic restoration for soft tissue development, and management of implant complications. It also featured state of the art surgical and restorative procedures.

Dentium sponsored Dr. Jaime Lozada to host a hands-on workshop where attendees learned a traditional lateral approach and a minimally invasive crestal approach to maxillary sinus lift.

Our Study Club guest speaker for July is Dr. Bandar Almaghrabi who will be presenting a lecture entitled:

"Management of Complications Associated with Maxillary Sinus Lift"

Lecture Summary:

Maxillary sinus lifts and augmentations can be considered as a daily procedure done by the hands of dental surgeons. Although nowadays the diversity and conservative approaches to lift the sinus exist, we still have a limited knowledge and less of defined protocols of how to manage complications associated with it. These complications mainly happen post surgically but there are other complications that can occur during the procedure. This presentation will review these complications that are expected and how to manage the major ones that commonly happen in such procedures

Our Study Club speaker for September is Dr. Michael Danielak who will be presenting a lecture entitled:

"Digital Dentistry Series Part 1: Implant Planning Using BlueSky Plan"

Implant planning has advanced significantly over the past decade with the introduction of sophisticated digital 3D computer software. While model-based surgical planning and surgical guides can provide clinicians with a good idea as to where to place implants intra-operatively, they lack demonstration of the bony anatomy beneath the soft tissue and quite often leads to “guess-work” during the surgery. Clinicians who are interested in placing implants or are currently placing implants should be able to utilize 3D implant planning software for precise planning and placement of their implants. An overlay of a CBCT scan with digital intra-oral models should be considered as a gold standard for pre-surgical implant planning. At the very least, a working knowledge of various implant planning software can improve communication between the clinician, patient, and laboratory technician during the pre-surgical treatment planning phase.

This seminar is designed to introduce the clinician to a free implant planning software (BlueSky Plan) which clinicians can use to greatly improve the outcomes of their implant placement utilizing guided surgery. Alive demonstration of the software will highlight the steps needed for planning of a single maxillary anterior implant crown from diagnostic records to digital implant placement to surgical guide fabrication.
