To Preserve or to Extract?
8:00 am - 9:00 am
Dr. Enrique Jadad Bechara
One of the major biological and ethical dilemmas dentists face is whether to preserve or extract teeth. This presentation will review the current literature about the current state of the guided bone regeneration, the regeneration of soft tissues, and the technology we have at our disposal to achieve a proper diagnosis when facing the replacement of dental and supporting tissues through bone grafting and osseointegrated implants. Clinical cases that included osseointegrated implants in the anterior region using superior quality diagnostic tools like CT Scan, handling of tissue fibrin-based membranes, bone grafts and CAD CAM zirconia restorations, will be presented. Cosmetic and restorative dentistry cases of high complexity will be included. The scientific evidence supports making decisions about whether to preserve or extract. Extensive research, current diagnostic tools, and the constant evolution of modern implantology provides the necessary guidelines to make this difficult decision.
Implantology from the Simple to the Complex
9:00 am – 10:00 am
Dr. José Luis Rafel Amato
The objective of this program is presenting the different options and suggestions for rehabilitation of an edentulous patient. The juxtaposition of the prosthetic aspect with the surgical requirements will be covered. The use of the new technologies for the diagnosis and development of the treatment plan resulting from the prosthetic and surgical aspects will be discussed. The different options in Surgery Guided by Computer in one as in two tomograms takings, their advantages and disadvantages at the time of the planning will be covered. At the conclusion of the program, participants will have observed the different clinical options through the presentation of clinical cases, which will demonstrate the level of rehabilitation that is available in the Dominican Republic and Latin America.
Computer Guided Implant Dentistry:
Where Are We Now and Where Are We Going to Be in the Near Future?
11:00 am – 12 Noon
Alvaro Ordonez, DDS
The purpose of this lecture is to present the different clinical and academic protocols available today to adequately plan and perform Computer Guided Implant Dentistry. A look at different options and modifications to the clinical techniques that once integrated to the computer guided protocols might dramatically affect the way in which computer implant dentistry is practiced today will be discussed.
Learning Objectives: At the completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
1. Understand the appropriate planning process to adequately perform a computer guided case
2. Understand how to perform and immediate load an "Immediate Smile Case"
3. Discuss the possibility of delivering ceramic crowns and abutments at the time of implant placement (cases will be presented)
From Surgery to Prosthodontics: Hard and soft Tissue Management (Cortical Splits, and Immediate Prosthesis)
1:30 pm – 2:10 pm
Dr. Norberto Manzanares
One of the biggest challenges we have in our patient`s treatment is the final esthetic result of the anterior maxillary sector. To improve results, we sometimes must perform different surgical (expansive cortical Splits, Grafts, Membranes, etc.) and prosthetic procedures. This lecture will present different techniques that have attained improved esthetic results and stability over a long period of time. The key to success is to get the hard and soft tissues back to their normal and healthy form and position as soon as possible. Using a Single Surgical Time Procedure and immediate prosthesis placement, helps to initiate the tissue manipulation from the very beginning of the intervention.
Focusing on the posterior sector using Semi-plunged technique on implant placement surgery, in order to preserve the bone crest, has resulted in high success index concerning to long term bone stability, using different kinds of implants and prosthetic connections.
Evaluation of the Maxillary Sinus Augmentation with Lateral Access and Actualization with Guided Tissue Regeneration Concepts
2:10 pm - 2:50 pm
Dr. Alejandro Padrós Fradera
Stuffing techniques are highly predictable and are an acceptable practice to deal with cases of implant prosthesis in the maxilla. However, after reviewing some surgical cases, the radiographic images can be highly misleading, showing neorformado as bone, connective tissue, or combinations of epithelial biomaterials.
These combinations are presented in the sinus area of ??the filler (up to 4 mm.) Alternating with true bone formation in the medial, making it appear that whole vital bone is newly formed, when in fact it is only part of it.
We cannot say what percentage of cases exhibit this phenomenon, but could explain the resorption that occurred over time in some stuffed sinuses. These sinuses are successful from the point of view of the patient, in the sense that the implants remain stable and in function, but from the professional point of view, are not since part of the implant is outside the newly formed bone volume.
That is why we consider this process to be undesirable and filling of sinus should use techniques of guided bone regeneration, which complicates the operation of the sinus filling, but the process becomes more refined and biologically acceptable.
The Prosthetic Guided Treatment Plan: The Key to Success in Implantology
2:50 pm - 3:30 pm
Juan Manuel Vadillo Martín. DDS
The current criteria for success in dental implantology, require doctors to make a diagnosis and individualized treatment plan for our patients. Advances in radiology and the development of minimally invasive surgical techniques, help ensure the optimal placement of implants, minimizing risks and ensuring success biomechanical, functional, and esthetic rehabilitations. It is therefore essential in the plan, to account for the ideal type of prosthesis for each patient, and do all in our power to carry it out effectively to achieve successful results.
Immediate Loading and Immediate Implants: Techniques and Indications
4:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Ricardo Mitrani, DDS, MSD
For more than a decade, the concept of immediate loading of endosseous implants has become increasingly popular. The dental literature is flooded with articles describing numerous techniques and discussing the concept. This presentation will take a close look at clinical/technical protocols evolving around this modality. Consideration should be given to the fact that applying the concept of immediate loading to the fully edentulous patient either in the maxillary arch or in the mandible should be regarded as a different entity than when considering the esthetic outcome as a variable in the anterior esthetic zone.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
1. Determine when immediate loading/immediate placement is a feasible option
2. Understand the limitations and potential contraindications of utilizing these clinical protocols
3. Discuss the significant role of team communication for these clinical protocols
4. Determine which techniques will give the most successful and long standing results
