Innovation: techniques, tools or both - Dr. Jong Cheol Kim

Aims and objectives:

  • Gain an overview of how to plan implants digitally using CBCT and STL files, and how to gain accuracy

  • How bone density, estimated on cone beam CT, relates to the primary stability of implants
  • Understand how bone density can be estimated, or determined, on the digital planning software
  • How the triad of bone density, ISQ and insertion torque can be used to plan for immediate loading
  • Understand the suitable conditions for one day implant guided surgery
  • Gain an insight into the rules for guided surgery
  • Understand digital facial analysis and Curves of Spee/Wilson digitally, for full mouth guided planning

Digital and analogue combined workflow, using Simpleway® implant prosthetic system - Dr. Joon Ho Lee

Aims and objectives:

  • Understand the use of the Bone Pen® for immediate cases and its benefits, especially when considering the prosthetic outcome

  • Learn about the use of the Bone Pen® in osteotomy preparation to allow for guided 3-dimensional positioning
  • Gain an overview of an abutment system that can help in immediate loading cases
  • Gain an overview of Simpleway® abutments

Learn from my mistakes, choosing the right tools for the right techniques - Dr. Sam Lee

Aims and objectives:

  • How to avoid surgical complications, in the maxilla, to include:

  • Greater palatine artery
  • Incisive canal
  • Intraosseous anastomosis of posterior superior alveolar and infraorbital arteries
  • Understand how to avoid surgical complications, in the mandible, to include:
  • Lingual concavity
  • Lingual canal
  • Mental nerve
  • Inferior alveolar canal
  • Learn how to manage these complications
  • Learn how to minimise these types of trauma
  • Gain an overview of an internal sinus lift - crestal window technique
  • Understand ideal implant positioning through a case presentation, considering the patient's expectations, treatment planning, the golden proportion, hard and soft tissue management and the subsequent treatment undertaken

Stepping out of the box, but never out of the route – a biological response to implant therapies. Part 1 - Dr. Ashraf Souayah

Aims and objectives:

  • The rules of good cosmetic outcomes in implant therapy
  • The esthetic parameters to assess for positive outcomes
  • The classification of extraction sites and how to develop soft and hard tissue in implant sites
  • Importance of site development and how to achieve these
  • Minimum soft tissue parameters
  • Tips on management of the narrow extraction sites in the anterior zone

Stepping out of the box, but never out of the route – a biological response to implant therapies. Part 2. Soft tissue and site maturation - Dr’s. Souheil Bechara and Davide Farronato

Aims and objectives:

  • Understand the importance of buccal bone and its width

  • Does buccal bone width affect bone resorption?
  • Understand the role of soft tissue, and the importance of Phenotype, over and above biotype
  • The importance of thinking out of the box – to use soft tissue to increase the buccal tissue when patients do not want bone grafting
  • An insight into phenotype, the source of soft tissue donor

Stepping out of the box, but never out of the route – a biological response to implant therapies. Part 3. The biology of bone grafting - Dr's. Micheal Larrson and Julian Filipov

Aims and objectives:

  • What surgical material to use

  • What biomaterial to use
  • How long do we wait before choosing our implant
  • A comparison of various bone regenerating mechanisms and techniques
  • An overview of what determines success in hard tissue grafting
  • Understand the limitations of grafting

Stepping out of the box, but never out of the route – a biological response to implant therapies. Part 4. Preserving hard and soft tissues - Dr. Soheil Bechara

Aims and objectives:

  • Understand hard and soft tissue management in immediate placement

  • The principles of immediate loading
  • The importance of soft tissue support during healing

Stepping out of the box, but never out of the route – a biological response to implant therapies. Part 5. Summary and close of the symposium

Aims and objectives:

  • Summary and closing of the symposium - question and answer session
