Full Arch Immediate Implant Reconstruction: State of the Art



Pre-Congress Hands-on Workshops: Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Dr. Nelson Pinto

Autologous Platelet Concentrate Technologies in Tissue Regeneration: L-PRF Workshop, 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

Dynamic advances in regenerative technologies are profoundly affecting our basic understanding of the biologic mechanisms of clinical implant dentistry. These technologies have led to new treatment concepts affecting a broad spectrum of clinical conditions.  This workshop gives the clinician the skills to combine these procedures in a predictable and simplified manner. Dr. Pinto, a distinguished pioneer in the field of tissue regeneration, presents a set of guidelines for the use of L-PRF and PRF-Block with a step-by-step approach. Live demonstrations as well as clinical video selections of each aspect of the process are carefully reviewed and analyzed. The workshop will provide enough scientific based evidence and information to help clinicians be confident in delivering these new treatment modalities to their patients.

Learning objectives: 

  1. Understand the science-based evidence for predictable  application of L-PRF.
  2. Explore guidelines for the use of L-PRF and PRF-Block with a step-by-step approach.
  3. Understand the synergy  of L-PRF  with different  biomaterials  and implants surfaces. 

Dr. Istvan Urban

Vertical Ridge Augmentation, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm (SOLD OUT) Please call to be added to the waiting list

The hands-on section will provide an in-depth knowledge of the details of vertical ridge augmentation surgery. Flap design, graft and membrane placement, effective flap mobilization and double-layer suture will be demonstrated.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand the surgical anatomy of the floor of the mouth
  2. Learn the surgical principles of ridge augmentation surgery
  3. Learn the tension free closure of the flaps after vertical ridge augmentation

Dr. Giovanni ZucchelliEsthetic Mucogingival Surgery Around Teeth, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Treatment of gingival recession has become an important therapeutic issue due to increasing number of cosmetic requests from patients. Very often the most coronal millimeter/s of root exposure is the only visible part of the recession when smiling, therefore the presence and/or the persistence after therapy, even of a shallow recession may be an aesthetic problem for the patient. Thus complete root coverage, up to the cemento-enamel junction, is the goal to be achieved when patients complain about their aesthetic tooth appearance.  New knowledge in soft tissue surgical management allows for predictable aesthetic root coverage with minimally invasive connective tissue grafts with gingival recession.

Learning objectives:

  1. Describe step by step root coverage surgical procedures
  2. Describe step by step connective tissue graft harvesting technique 
  3. Describe step by step suturing procedure
