LIVE WEBINAR COURSES

Clinical Lecture Series: Immediate Loading - State of the Art
Tuesday, July 12, 2022 | 11am - 12pm ET
Webinar via Zoom

Register for course

Speaker: Dr. Tiziano Testori MD, DDS, Msc, FICD

Abstract: The ultimate goal of an immediate loading protocol is to reduce the number of surgical interventions and shorten the time frame between surgery and prosthetic delivery, all without sacrificing implant success rates. Immediate loading will ultimately lessen patients' reservations and result in increased acceptance of implant therapy. The lecture will address the latest digital protocols and a variety of topics related to immediate loading in different clinical situations: edentulous mandible and maxilla, partially edentulous patients from single tooth to multiple units.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Predictable clinical indications
  2. Contraindications to immediate loading
  3. Digital pre-prosthetic diagnostic phase
  4. Step-by-step surgical/prosthetic procedures in totally and partially edentulous patients

Tuition: $70/1 (one) ADA credit hour

Course Prerequisites: None required 

Course Format: Lecture

Conflict of Interest: Clinical research support & consultant for Biohorizons

Contact: Caitlin Laughlin at caitlin_laughlin@hsdm.harvard.edu

Course Agenda

"The Use of Lasers in the Treatment of Periodontitis and Peri-Implantitis" (Dr. Philip Kang)

Abstract: Various dental laser wavelengths have emerged as adjunct tools to treat periodontitis and peri-implantitis. However, tremendous heterogeneity in treatment outcomes and controversy still remains.  Pertaining to peri-implantitis treatment, even more conflicting data exists in both clinical and research settings.  While the recent American Academy of Periodontology Best Evidence Consensus has demonstrated little benefit with the use of lasers, an increasing number of clinicians are employing laser therapy in their practices and more practitioners are convinced with positive clinical outcomes.  This presentation will highlight an unbiased review of various lasers, challenges associated with clinical research, currently available scientific evidence, and future directions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Become familiar with commonly used lasers in periodontics
  • Develop an understanding of how different lasers work
  • Acquire knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of various lasers
  • Understand why there is confusion and controversy among clinicians
  • Appreciate how lasers can change the way periodontists treat patients
  • Recognize the challenges related to current research on the topic

"Mastering Implant Occlusion" (Dr. Sang Lee)

Abstract: The advancement of dental implant has completely changed the prosthetic treatment of partially and fully edentulous patients. Dental implant restorations present a unique challenge as osseointegrated implants react in a biomechanically different fashion to occlusal force, unlike natural teeth. It becomes evident that the types of occlusal scheme play a crucial role in achieving long-term success of the implant prostheses and its treatment. However, occlusal concepts for implant prosthodontics have been controversial and limited in the literature as none of the studies could be supported by human clinical trials in a controlled environment. 

The lecture will present the occlusal theories in implant dentistry and review the mostly accepted occlusal concepts and the clinical guidelines of optimal implant occlusion.  

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the occlusal force distribution of teeth vs. implants 
  • Discuss the occlusal theories and concepts in implant prosthodontics 
  • Review the clinical guidelines of optimal implant occlusion 

"Executive Practice Management" (Dr. Emilio Arguello)

Abstract: This lecture will focus on the different models for successful management and integration of work-flows between a private practice versus multi-practice models, as well as the understanding of the common goals to maximize earning potential that can be achieved in both models from the practitioner's point of view.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to learn different proven models of practice management.
  • Participants will be able to apply concepts learned in the corporate industry in their private practices.
