Management of severe alveolar defects utilizing GLYMATRIX technology

Dr. Christos Tsamis

Modern implantology requires the application of biomaterials which can enhance the healing dynamics of the regenerative procedures.

Specifically, severe alveolar defects pose a clinical challenge and historically the non-resorbable, reinforced membrane has been considered the device of choice for such applications. However, the frequent complications associated with their use have shifted the interest towards alternative strategies which can offer comparable outcomes.

GLYCAMATRIX cross-linked collagen technology has been shown to offer extended barrier function as well as ossifying properties and when combined with other space maintaining devices such as tenting screws and miniplates may be considered in the management of complex alveolar defects. The aim of this presentation is to discuss the above concept by showcasing 4 clinical scenarios and describe the indications, the patient and material selection process and the technical aspects for a successful clinical outcome.

Protocols in complete-arch fixed implant prosthodontics

Fernando Rojas-Vizcaya, DDS, MS

In complete mouth restorations, different protocols can be followed; analog, analog/digital, 2D, and 3D or fully digital.

In any of the protocols, four components must be integrated; the dynamics of the lips, prosthetics, biology, and surgery, which will guarantee the long-term success of the treatment.

Smile design: integrating prosthetic, surgical & biological parameters using Simplant & SmartFix koncept

Fernando Rojas-Vizcaya, DDS, MS

In complex cases of patients with terminal dentition, it is essential to determine the position of the final teeth before implant placement.

In this way, the relationship of the new teeth with the patient’s existing bone can be visualized in order to carry out a treatment plan where the patient’s smile is integrated with the prosthesis, and this, in turn, with biology and surgery. In this presentation, each aspect of the process is described in detail from the treatment plan to the final restoration.

Sandwich technique and vertical augmentation of the alveolar bone

Prof. MUDr. et MUDr. René Foltán, Ph.D., FEBOMFS

I když je podle literárních údajů zapotřebí vertikálních augmentací v implantologii asi jen u 7 % pacientů, je důležité, aby byl i začínající implantolog, vybaven dostatečnými znalostmi o všech možnostech augmentace alveolu.

V literatuře i v odborných sděleních jsou široce
popisovány a diskutovány především techniky GBR a kostních bloků a jejich modifikací.
Existují však i jiné techniky pro vertikální augmentace, na které bychom neměli zapomínat. Jedná se především o interpoziční, nebo jinak i sendvičové techniky vertikální augmentace alveolu. V přednášce budou diskutovány biologické principy, indikace, technika provedení, timing a také možné komplikace této, ne tak často publikované techniky. Také se zaměříme na management měkkých tkání, který po těchto typech augmentací musí následovat.

Understanding the Biologic Software and Matching the Hardware for Better Implant Therapy, 1. část

Prof. Nitzan Bichacho

In order to achieve a natural-looking result of artificial implant restorations, one must analyze the operative site and plan for a long term healthy integration of the restorative complex and the implant fixture within the surrounding living tissues.

At the smile zone our primary goal is also to obtain natural-looking peri-implant soft tissue
embracing a natural-looking functioning crown.

The accumulated insights over the last 20 years on bone and tissue response (and
alterations) around implants, enable biologic-based implementation of different surgical and
restorative approaches, so that the abutment-crown complex has more chances to blend in
with the surrounding tissue and the dentition in complete health and harmony.
In this presentation, surgical and restorative algorithms will be explained through clinical
cases, to enable a comprehensive understanding of the present limitations and the various
options available today to maximize the successful results of implants-based restorations
especially at the smile zone.

New Perspectives on Vertical and Horizontal Augmentation, part 1

Prof. Istvan Urban

Vertical and horizontal augmentation presents one of the greatest challenges of bone regeneration in implant dentistry.

This is primarily due to the difficulty of the surgical procedure and its potential complications. However, it has been demonstrated that successful clinical outcomes can be predictably achievable when strict protocols are followed. The detailed understanding of clinical anatomy should guide the clinician when managing the soft tissue flaps in an attempt to securely close the flaps to achieve optimal healing environment of the graft.

Graft immobilizations, the optimal use of graft materials are essential in achieving bone formation even in a distance from the bony walls. This presentation will summarize the essential steps of ridge augmentation and gives an insight how a clinician can learn these demanding procedures.
