The Future of Bone Grafting
Craig Misch, DDS, MDS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain the trend towards a “graft less” approach to implant therapy; 2) discuss the use of customized scaffolds for bone augmentation; and 3) evaluate the current state of growth factors for bone augmentation.
8:30 – 9:00 am
Effects of Soft Tissue Augmentation Procedures on Peri-implant Health and Disease Prevention
Sonia Leziy, DDS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) discuss the indications for gingival augmentation which current literature supports; 2) recognize what treatment modalities and materials are considered superior; and 3) describe emerging trends to better document tissue stability and peri-implant tissue health.
9:00 – 9:30 am
The Future of Reintervention Concepts
Bach Le, DDS, MD
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) identify risk factors associated with early and late implant failures; 2) explain the difference between patient-related versus site-related etiology for implant failures; and 3) describe treatment strategies to improve the success of reintervention therapy.
9:30 – 10:00 am
10:00 – 10:30 am
Artificial Intelligence in Implant Dentistry: Current Applications and Future Perspectives
Wael Att, DDS, DMD, PhD
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain the basic concept of artificial intelligence; 2) discuss different applications of AI in dentistry; and 3) describe the current status of AI in implant dentistry.
10:30 – 11:00 am
Next Level of 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 success of implant placement with simultaneous GBR; 2) recognize the effect of graft stabilization and membrane stabilization; and 3) discuss the difference between using autogenous soft tissue grafts and collagen soft tissue substitute.
11:00 -11:30 am
The Future of Implant/Restorative Materials
William Martin, DMD, MS
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) describe the current implant, abutment and restorative material alternatives for the partially or completely edentulous patient; 2) list the contemporary dental materials utilized to maximize strength versus esthetics or a combination of both; and 3) explain the future direction of implant and restorative materials for use in clinical dentistry.
