The 32nd Annual Meeting
Goof to Great: Making Excellence a Clinical Reality

The goal of this year's 2017 Annual Meeting is to provide attendees with the most current information based on what has been learned for obtaining predictable results in implant therapy. The overall objective is to evaluate clinical, technological and biological breakthroughs made in implant dentistry. These advances will be explored relative to their influences on clinical practice. Our aim is to provide a comprehensive program including addressing current challenges and solutions in both restorative and surgical techniques currently in use today including surgical and prosthodontic treatment planning, maintaining implant success, team management and solving implant complications. Information will be presented on team treatment collaborations, treatment options for edentulous patients and what the future holds in implant dentistry. The ultimate goal is to provide the attendee information on the most predictable and proven techniques to integrate into clinical practice to improve patient care.

M-1: Complications in Implant Therapy: Why? When? Is Avoidance Possible?

Speaker(s) :

  • Jay Malmquist, DMD

  • Clearly implant therapy has changed the treatment planning of our patient population. It has allowed all clinicians to provide answers to difficult reconstructive issues that many remember as impossible to solve. Replacement therapy with tissue, proteins and metallic fixtures has introduced new lines of problem-solving. However, along with this has been a novel increase in poor results, tissue injury and unexpected outcomes. The rise in complaints at various levels with increased litigation is well documented. As I consider this complex problem, several thoughts come to mind regarding the institution of new techniques and the renewal of old procedures. Many clinicians seem to divorce themselves from the basics of biology and wound healing, blaming instead the products or the techniques. The idea that technology can somehow replace sound surgical principles is something that is pervasive in todays throwaway literature. Gimmicks have replaced treatment planning principles. We as clinicians cannot fall into this marketing trap. This discussion will focus on the issues related to poor outcomes with implants and adjunctive procedures. Grafting, esthetics, failures of fixture positioning, and bone loss, both short and long term, around implant fixtures will be topics of review. Outcomes will be discussed, analyzed and reviewed using the literature and clinical examples. Basic principles will be stressed with emphasis on biology and evidenced-based therapy. Can we maintain a balance between technology and science? These exciting topics will be discussed and many solutions will be explored.

M-7: Treatment Planning Considerations You May Not Have Considered: Tooth Decay, CBCT Findings, Planning Against Failure, and the Like

Speaker(s) :

  • Stephen Parel, DDS

  • Angled or tilted distal implants used to support edentulous full-arch restorations have become a standard in implant dentistry. Early concerns regarding off-axis loading producing detrimental forces have been addressed with more recent publications presenting sound evidence as to the efficacy of this approach. As a result, treatment plans can now be created that eliminate the need for grafting, shorten overall treatment time, and allow for immediate loading in a much broader spectrum of patient presentations. Tilting of distal implants to avoid anatomic structures or for anchorage in remote bone areas such as the zygoma, can have the beneficial effect of improving anterior - posterior spread, enhancing cross-arch stability, and allowing placement of longer implants. The ultimate effect can be a reduction in the number of implants needed (as few as 4 in the edentulous arch) for support in many cases. With the use of CAT scans for accurate diagnosis of osseous anatomy and determining the capability of existing bone to allow immediate loading, this approach is now even more controlled and precise. This presentation will focus on both a review of the current literature and a presentation of experience to date using available bone receptor sites to place diverging implants for maximum desired effect. Various considerations in treatment planning that have evolved as a result of over 25 years treating the full-arch implant patient will provide the basis for evaluating data with regard to current success rates and avoidance of complications. Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) create a plan for dealing with primary failures in either arch; 2) explain the importance of treatment planning based on individual arch considerations; and 3) discuss and employ various rescue strategies based on failure location.

M-8: Maxillary Sinus Elevation: The Lateral Approach Revisited

Speaker(s) :

  • Tiziano Testori, MD, DDS

  • The maxillary sinus elevation procedure has become an important pre-prosthetic surgical procedure for the creation of bone volume in the edentulous posterior maxilla for the placement of dental implants. Research and clinical experience over the past 30 years have increased the predictability of this procedure as well as reducing patient morbidity. Over the intervening years, less invasive techniques using a crestal approach have been introduced to reduce complications and morbidity, however, these procedures are more technique sensitive. This lecture on the progression of maxillary sinus augmentation from major surgery to a minimally invasive procedure, explores various surgical approaches, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each technique. Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain the decision making process in choosing the appropriate approach; 2) list step-by-step surgical techniques; and 3) discuss the selection of grafting materials.
