Advanced Protocols for Converting Removable Dentures to Fixed Interim Prosthesis: A Review and Hands-on Course

Tony Prestipino, CDT, Certified Dental Technician in the Washington DC area

With the popularity of immediately loading dental implants growing you will learn how to convert an immediate denture into an immediate fixed temporary hybrid prosthesis in the same day as implant placement.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) Identify the correct implants parts to convert a denture to a fixed hybrid prosthesis; 2) utilize materials needed to convert a denture into a fixed hybrid prosthesis; and 3) convert a denture into a fixed immediately loaded hybrid.

This workshop has been designated for 3.5 ADA CERP credit hours.

1:30 – 5:30 pm
($250 AO Member / $300 non-AO Member)

Socket Bone Grafting With and Without Biological Modifiers

Joseph Fiorellini, DMD, DMSc, Chair of the Department of Periodontics at the University of Pennsylvania

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) identify indications for socket preservation; 2) list the materials utilized for socket preservation; and 3) explain the surgical procedures for socket preservation.

This workshop has been designated for 3.5 ADA CERP credit hours.

Innovative Strategies and Techniques in Ridge Augmentation

Edgar El Chaar, DDS, MS, Director of Postgraduate Periodontics Specialty Program at New York University
The Ridge augmentation procedure and Implant dentistry have evolved over the years and became a corner stone in our treatment plan. With that, a widespread of practitioners have embarked on this journey raising the bar in demand and complications requiring a newer more creative thinking to fulfill the challenges. With the advent of technologies and material, a more predictable result is achievable in this ever-changing environment.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:1) describe the wound healing process in bone regeneration; 2) explain how 3-D printing is used to communicate and create a space needed in bone regeneration; and 3) discuss different techniques including titanium mesh with 100% allograft and allograft rings.

Occlusion and Dental Implants – What Gives?

Thomas Taylor, DDS, MSD, Head of the Department of Reconstructive Sciences at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine
The biomechanical basis for implant component design has evolved dramatically since the early days of implant dentistry. Changes in thread profile, surface treatment, materials, connector configurations and many other aspects have improved the strength, stability and esthetic outcome of implant supported restorations. Unfortunately, many of the assumptions dentists and dental implant manufacturers continue to work under are not based on scientific evidence and may, in fact, be erroneous. Issues such as axial vs. nonaxial loading, progressive loading, occlusal overload and occlusion related bone loss are areas of concern to the dentist who places and/or restores dental implants and will be the topic of this review.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain how the state of the science is relative to dental implants and occlusion; 2) differentiate between high and low risk factors associated with functional loading of dental implants; and 3) discuss how implant design and failure mode can be related.

Implant Overdenture: The Past, the Present and the Future

Eva Anadioti, DDS, MSc, Director of the Postgraduate Prosthodontics Specialty Program at the University of Pennsylvania
Edentulism remains prevalent worldwide and in the US. Treatment modalities to address this condition have changed over time. Implant retained overdenture has become commonly provided solution for completely edentulous patients. This presentation will discuss the history of overdentures, their current designs and future direction.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) discuss the history and evolution of implant retained overdenture; 2) identify and select implant retained overdenture designs and attachments; and 3) describe the future directions in the field of implant retained overdentures.

Bone Tissue Engineering

Maria Troulis, DDS, MSc, Chair of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Harvard University School of Dental Medicine
This presentation will review distraction osteogenesis, as a minimally invasive alternative technique to bone harvesting/grafting procedures. Various applications of distraction osteogenesis will be described. As it is a form of in vivo bone engineering, the biology will be described. Ex vivo bone tissue engineering techniques will also be discussed.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) define distraction osteogenesis; 2) describe various applications of distraction osteogenesis and 3) describe alveolar distraction osteogenesis.

This session has been designated for 6.75 ADA CERP credit hours.
