3RD BIOHORIZONS CONGRESS IN DUBAI

Two-day Advanced Interdisciplinary Dentistry Course

Dubai, UAE

October 21-22, 2022

Presented by: Drs. Hom Lay Wang, Alvaro Blasi & Gonzalo Blasi

Day 1 : October 21, 2022

What’s new in implant complications?

Presented by Dr. Hom Lay Wang

Implant complications have become a major challenge for many dentists. This lecture is designed to help you understand what’s new in implant complications, how to avoid problems, and how to predictably mange these emerging concerns. New definitions such as plaque induced peri-implantitis, non-plaque associated peri-implant diseases, predisposing/precipitating factors associated with peri-implant complications as well as treatment prognosis of peri-implant diseases, will be presented.

We will be discussing recent research findings showing how surface coating, titanium particles, and restorative designs influence the incidence of implant complications. In addition, this lecture will provide the mechanisms (e.g., surgically triggered, prosthetically triggered, and biological induced implant complications) of how implant bone loss and implant failure occur; specifically, how to manage implant esthetic and biological complications using submerged (EP-DDS) or non-submerged surgical protocols will be demonstrated. Three decision trees will be presented (implant biological complication management, implant treatment based upon defect morphology and implant soft tissue recession classification and proposed management). Treatments for implant diseases/complications will be thoroughly discussed including the following treatment options: chemotherapeutic agents, lasers de-contamination, apically positioned flap with or without implantoplasty, implant surface detoxification, lasers, guided bone regeneration, soft tissue grafts (conditioning), implant removal as well as re-implantation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Recognize predisposing and precipitating factors associated with peri-implant complications
  • Learn how to prevent future implant complications
  • Know how to select proper treatment for different implant complications
  • Learn EP-DDS guided bone regeneration protocol to predictably regenerate peri-implantitis defects

Day 2 : October 22, 2022

What are the critical aspects of implant/restorative interface?

Presented by Blasi Brothers

Many clinical investigations have shown that dental implants have a high success rate and mastery of surgical procedures and advancements in materials allow implant therapy to be successful in terms of osseointegration. This condition, however, is no longer sufficient alone. The ability to install a restoration on implants that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing is critical. In this lecture the critical aspects of implant/restorative interface will be reviewed. Different surgical aspects to achieve critical soft tissue and bone contours will be revised. Moreover, prosthetic solutions and material selection for long term stability and esthetics will be shown.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the critical peri-implant buccal bone thickness and surgical aspects to achieve it
  • Understand and learn how to achieve critical peri-implant soft tissue contour
  • Learn how to modify an implant provisional to improve soft tissue contour
  • Learn how to implement material selection based on the clinical situation
