Dr. Matthew Fien
Hands-on Session: Improving the Predictability of Guided Bone Regeneration with Resorbable Materials
4 CE Hrs ($995 USD)
8:00 am – 12:00 pm

In order to achieve successful guided bone regeneration, several requirements must be
satisfied. In this hands-on session, we will utilize porcine mandibles to perform ridge augmentation with resorbable materials following a specific protocol that can be applied to a
variety of clinical scenarios.

This session will review in detail appropriate incision designs for guided bone regeneration, flap management, minimally invasive techniques to harvest autogenous bone, material selection, handling of biomaterials, techniques to maintain space, stabilization of the graft/membrane complex with periosteal biting stabilization sutures, and techniques to achieve tension-free primary closure.

Learning Objectives:
• To understand the requirements for successful guided bone regeneration and how to satisfy these requirements with bio-absorable materials
• To learn a specific protocol to perform guided bone regeneration with all resorbable materials
• To learn site specific techniques to stabilize the graft/membrane complex with periosteal biting sutures
• To learn to perform a safe and effective technique to achieve tension free primary closure with minimal post op morbidity compared to traditional techniques

Dr. Giulio Rasperini
Plastic Periodontal Regenerative Surgery, Nowadays Techniques

4 CE Hrs ($995 USD)
8:00 am – 12:00 pm

On the hands-on course would be shown and developed by the participants main periodontal surgical techniques. Paying attention to the treatment of intrabony defect and to the interdental soft tissue simultaneously will maximize the prognostic and aesthetic outcome in the treatment of periodontally compromised natural teeth.

The hands on will be with exercise on the use of different techniques and biomaterials in different clinical scenario of missing papillae and interproximal attachment loss.

Learning Objectives:
• The most recent techniques for interproximal and papillae gain
• The biomaterials to use in these procedures
• Full surgical protocol how to treat advanced cases

Dr. Alberto Monje
Surgical Therapy of Peri-implantitis: From Reconstructive Therapy to Soft Tissue Conditioning
4 CE Hrs ($995 USD)
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The goal in the management of peri-implantitis is to reduce pocket length to ≤5mm. Reconstructive and respective strategies have been advocated. The surgical therapy of peri-implantitis is dictated by defect morphology and implant position. Moreover, in order to prevent disease recurrence, in scenarios lacking keratinized mucosa, soft tissue conditioning simultaneous to the anti-infective therapy is key to prevent recurrence.

Learning Objectives:
• To identify the indications for the different therapeutic modalities according to defect configuration and implant position
• To learn the step-by-step approach in reconstructive therapy to manage peri-implantitis
• To learn the key biological and technical principles for soft tissue conditioning by means of free epithelialized grafts to prevent and manage peri-implantitis

Dr. Roberto Rossi
The Cortical Lamina Technique: Present and Future of 3D Ridge Augmentation.
4 CE Hrs ($995 USD)
1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

For many years GBR has been a technique with many lights and also many shadows. Every technique proposed in the past has shown excellent outcomes but also easy complications. The use of non resorbable or resorbable membranes introduces the risk of exposure and or lack of maintenance of volume stability. The advent of cortical laminas represented an easy simplification of the technique since the membrane is in this case made of bone. The presentation will show the multiple applications of this technique and its predictability, also associated with a minor number of complications.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand and select the bony defects, horizontal, vertical, combined
• Learn the application of the three different types of Lamina for GBR
• Learn the use of the Lamina in Periodontally involved cases
