Immediacy and delayed implant concepts in the anterior region – When and how we push the limits. Implant placement in the esthetic zone remains always a challenging clinical procedure requiring clinical skills and meticulous planning. “Maintain or recreate the volume” has always been a dilemma for the clinician the last decades affecting the treatment choice and often the clinical outcome. Immediate implants seem to gain again more trust since better hardware and software are being used.

The purpose of this presentation is to provide simple clinical concepts to ensure stable transmucosal contours with high white and pink esthetic scores regardless of implant placement timing. Starting with the proper implant macro-geometry and guided implant placement, understanding the importance of the abutment design and the different zones of the transmucosal contour, the participants will be able to master step by step simple clinical procedures to achieve better long-term esthetic outcomes.

Recession Coverage at Crown Restored Teeth and Dental Implants 

Predictable recession coverage at crown restored teeth and dental implants is still a challenge for the clinician. Several factors such as anatomy and position, recession depth and width, presence, or absence of supporting bone, and thickness of the soft tissues may limit the management of soft tissues and consequently impair the outcomes. Emerging evidence indicates that by having a correct indication, the modified coronally advanced tunnel (MCAT), the laterally closed tunnel (LCT) or the very recently described combination of MCAT and LCT in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, certain collagen based soft tissue grafts alone or combined with other biologic materials such as enamel matrix proteins or hyaluronic acid may result in predictable outcomes and long-term stability. 

  1. To outline the indications and contraindications for recession coverage at crown restored teeth and dental implants.
  2. Based on clinical cases and surgical videos to illustrate the step-by-step procedure for the tunnelling approaches in various clinical scenarios.

Tratamentul retractiei gingivale la coroanele dentare si implanturi 

Acoperirea predictibila a retractiei gingivale in cazul dintilor restaurati prin coronae cat si prin implanturi dentare  ramane o provocare pentru clinician. O serie de factori, cum ar fi anatomia și poziția, adâncimea și lățimea retractiei prezența sau absența osului receptor si grosimea țesuturilor moi pot limita gestionarea țesuturilor moi și, prin urmare, pot afecta rezultatele. Studiile indică faptul , având o indicație corectă, tunelul avansat coronar modificat (MCAT), tunelul închis lateral (LCT) sau combinația foarte recent descrisă de MCAT și LCT în combinație cu grefele de țesut conjunctiv, anumite grefe de țesuturi moi pe bază de colagen singure sau combinate cu alte materiale biologice, cum ar fi proteinele din matricea smalțului sau acidul hialuronic, pot duce la rezultate previzibile și stabilitate pe termen lung. 

  1. Sa evidentieze indicatiile si contra-indicatiile pentru tratamentul recesiunii gingivale la  protetica pe dinti naturali si implanturi.
  2. Pe baza cazurilor clinice și a videoclipurilor chirurgicale se va ilustra pas cu pas procedura de tunelizare în diferite scenarii clinice.

Novel approaches and strategies for peri-implant soft tissue augmentation: Why, When and How.

The fact that an implant is properly functioning is not necessarily associated to success. In fact, many dental implants can present esthetics or functional alterations in the soft tissues morphology and texture that jeopardize the success rate of the therapy. Soft tissue defects around dental implants, such as papilla or volume loss, peri-implant recession and alterations of the ridge color and/or texture, lead to esthetic and functional critical issues. A good quality, quantity and thickness of the peri-implant soft tissue is also critical to achieve biomimetics and pink esthetics. The “Buccal Pedicle Flap” and its modifications will be presented as a novel technique to boost the peri-implant mucosa without the need of invasive procedures thus allowing to obtain the desiderable mucosa volume and quality. This approach would lead to a more stable tissues, no peri-implant bone loss or peri-implantitis and ultimately higher success rate in modern implant dentistry.

  1. understand the importance of the peri-implant mucosa
  2. being able to detect the critical numbers for mucosa health 
  3. evaluate the surgical alternatives to boost the peri-implant mucosa 
  4. understand in details the critical steps to perform the “Buccal Pedicle Flap”
  5. obtain a full understanding of the concept of mucosa integration and soft tissue sealing
  6. understand how to prevent or treat complications and failures in dental medicine

Abordari noi si strategii pentru augmentarea tesutului moale peri-implantar: de ce, cand si cum. 

Faptul ca un implant functionează corect nu este neaparat asociat cu succesul. De fapt, multe implanturi dentare pot prezenta estetica sau modificari functionale in morfologia si textura tesuturilor moi care pun in pericol rata de succes a terapiei. Defectele tesuturilor moi din jurul implanturilor dentare, cum ar fi papila sau pierderea de volum, aparitia peri-implantitei si modificarile culorii si/sau texturii crestei, duc la probleme critice estetice si functionale. O bună calitate, cantitatea si grosimea tesutului moale peri-implantar este, de asemenea, esentiala pentru realizarea biomimeticei si a esteticii roz.. Tehnica " Buccal Pedicle Flap " si modificările sale vor fi prezentate ca o tehnică inedită de stimulare a mucoasei peri-implantare fara a fi nevoie de proceduri invazive, permitand astfel obtinerea volumului si calitatii mucoasei dorite. Aceasta abordare ar duce la un tesut mai stabil, fara pierdere osoasa peri-implantar sau fara peri-implantita si, în cele din urmă, la o rata de succes mai mare in stomatologia moderna a implanturilor.

  1. intelegerea importantei mucoasei peri-implantare 
  2. posibilitatea de a detecta numerele critice pentru sanatatea mucoasei 
  3. evaluarea alternativelor chirurgicale pentru stimularea mucoasei peri-implantare 
  4. pasii critici pentru realizarea "Buccal Pedicle Flap " – prezentare in detaliu 
  5. obtinerea unei intelegere depline a conceptului de integrare a mucoaselor si de etansare a tesuturilor moi 
  6. intelegerea a cum sa previi sau sa tratezi complicatiile si esecurile in medicina dentara

Working with Real Bone- Take your implantology skills from Good to Great

In the presented procedures, the Biological Bone Augmentation (BBA concept) and the Split bone block technique SBBT (according to Prof. Fouad Khoury) are presented, in which preferably the patient's own and vital bone is used as the so-called "Gold standard". The advantage lies in the osteoinductive and osteogenetic potency of the autologous bone.

At the same time, innovative modifications as the Semilunar technique (SLT) are presented, which may represent a facilitation and simplification of the previous methods.

In this context, the careful, safe and at the same time time-saving harvesting of the bone as well as the safe reconstruction of the defects are discussed in particular.

  1. How to harvest bone blocks from the retromolar area 
  2. How to harvest intra-cortical bone shells using the Semilunar technique (SLT) 
  3. How to apply the Split Bone Technique (by Fouad Khoury) and work with Real Bone 
  4.  How to deal with vertical defects and manage advance hard- and soft tissue management

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) - A paradigm shift in the treatment of compromised sockets in the esthetic zone

In this lecture I will discuss how to manage compromised sockets with severe bone loss in combination with implant installation, bone reconstruction and provisional fabrication in a single procedure using bone graft harvested from maxillary tuberosity applying minimally invasive approach.   

       I will share very challenging clinical cases that without IDR technique it could not be managed using flapless procedures with minimally invasive surgeries, thus requiring a more expensive treatment, longer and with greater unpredictability of results. It will be introduce a new perspective to manage compromised sockets using flapless surgery in a simplest way possible based on biological response. 

        It will be presented several cases, which showed one or more compromised socket walls of the tooth involved, with or without changes of the gingival margin, with long-term of clinical, radiographic and CT scan follow-up.    

  1. Demonstrate improvement of the practitioner’s management of compromised fresh extraction sockets in the esthetic zone
  2. Explain the step-by-step, indications, and advantages of the IDR concept 
  3. Discuss bone biology and IDR response

Restaurari imediate dentoalveolare (IDR) O schimbare de paradigma in tratamentul situri-lor compromise in zona estetica. 

În această prezentare se va discuta despre cum să gestionați situri-le compromise cu pierderi osoase severe în combinație cu inserarea implantului, reconstrucția osoasă și confectionarea lucrarilor provizoarii într-o singură procedură folosind grefa osoasă recoltată din tuberozitatea maxilară aplicând o abordare minim invazivă. Voi împărtăși cazuri clinice foarte provocatoare care fără tehnica IDR nu ar putea fi gestionate folosind proceduri flapless cu intervenții chirurgicale minim invazive, necesitând astfel un tratament mai scump, mai lung și cu o imprevizibilitate mai mare a rezultatelor.

Se va introduce o nouă perspectivă de gestionare a situri-lor compromise folosind chirurgia flapless într-un mod cât mai simplu posibil, pe baza răspunsului biologic.Vor fi prezentate mai multe cazuri, care au prezentat unul sau mai mulți pereți ai sit-ului compromis ai dintelui implicat, cu sau fără modificări ale marginii gingivale, cu monitorizare pe termen lung a scanării clinice, radiografice și CT-ului. 

  1. Management imbunatatit al alveolei postextractionale in zona estetica 
  2. Explicarea pas cu pas, indicațiile și avantajele conceptului IDR 
  3. Discutii despre biologia osoasă și răspunsul IDR

Esthetic and Functional Rehabilitation of Complex Cases 

Every single time we start treating a complex case we have to make numerous assessments in order to guarantee the patient an ideal aesthetic and functional result. 

The aesthetic analysis, the functional analysis and the clinician technician communication are of fundamental importance in order to guarantee this result. 

  1. The lecture will highlight an ideal workflow to ensure predictable results. 
  2. The differences between a traditional approach and a digital one will be highlighted in order to identify the pros and cons of the two approaches. 
  3. The materials and prosthetic designs will also be evaluated to ensure the longevity and aesthetics of our restorations.

Reabilitari estetice si functionale ale cazurilor complexe 

De fiecare dată când începem tratăm un caz complex, trebuie facem numeroase evaluări pentru a garanta pacientului un rezultat estetic și funcțional ideal.Analiza estetica, analiza functionala si comunicarea technician - clinician sunt de o importanta fundamentala pentru a garanta acest rezultat.

  1. Prezentarea va evidenția un flux de lucru ideal pentru a asigura rezultate previzibile. 
  2. Diferențele dintre o abordare tradițională și una digitală vor fi evidențiate pentru a identifica avantajele și dezavantajele celor două abordări.
  3. Materialele și design-ul protetic vor fi, de asemenea, evaluate pentru a asigura longevitatea și estetica restaurărilor noastre.

Concepte de inserare imediata sau intarziata a implantului in zona anterioara. Cand si cum impingem limitele?

Inserarea implantului in zona estetica ramane o provocare din perspectiva procedurii clinice, necesitand abilitati clinic si o planificare meticuloasa.

“Pastrarea sau constructia volumului” a fost intotdeauna o dilemma pentru medic in ultimele decenii, afectand decizia de tratament si destul de des rezultat clinic. Inserarea imediata se pare ca a castigat tot mai multa incredere.

Scopul prezentarii este sa ofere conceptele clinice ce asigura contururi transmucosale stabile indifferent de momentul inserarii implantului. Incepand cu macro-geometria potrivita inserarii implantului si cu inserarea lui gidata, intelegand importanta designului bontului si diferitelor zone ale conturului transmucosal, participantii vor putea stapani pas cu pas procedure clinic pentru a obtine rezultate estetice mai bune pe termen lung.
