Predictable Immediate Placement in Vertically Deficient Ridges

Dr. Justin Moody
8:00am-12:00pm
Tuition: $395
Hands-on

This hands-on workshop will demonstrate how the combination of guided surgical planning and unique short implants designed specifically for vertically deficient ridges can be used to treat these challenging cases. In patients with poor bone volume or anatomical restrictions, digital treatment planning and guided surgery can provide significant advantages and confidence to clinicians. However, conventional implants may not be able to meet the demands for initial stability in very short ridges, therefore requiring an implant designed for this specific purpose. The workshop will feature case review and hands-on demonstration of these two technologies working in concert.

Breakout Session

Regenerative Therapy for Implant Site Development Incorporating L-PRF

Dr. Bart Silverman
8:00am-12:00pm
Tuition: $395
Hands-on

This course is designed for specialists and general practitioners who are interested in enhancing their bone grafting technique, especially for dental implant cases. Leukocyte- and Platelet-Rich Fibrin (L-PRF®) is derived from a small sample of the patient’s blood, taken at the point of care, and processed to develop a fibrin clot. The fibrin clot is prepared into a membrane that is rich in platelets, growth factors and cytokines necessary to produce rapid healing and efficient regeneration.

Uses for the material include bulking graft material, replacing graft material, using it as a barrier membrane, placing it in extractions sites for increased healing, and using it in guided tissue regeneration procedures. It is also ideal for extraction/immediate placement cases.

In this course, you will learn the science behind L-PRF and how to incorporate it in your clinical practice. The in-person hands-on training portion will teach you how to create the L-PRF membrane/plugs.

Implant Site Development: Should We Graft or Should We Go Shorter or Thinner?

Dr. Tara Aghaloo


Favorable implant outcomes depend greatly on adequate hard and soft tissue to support long-term esthetics and function. However, anatomical limitations and compromised patients may make grafting more challenging and less predictable. With newer materials and technology such as short or narrow diameter implants, grafting may not be required in all cases. This presentation will update the practicing clinician on when to graft, and when to go shorter or thinner.

Learning Objectives:
  • Update on medical risk factors and medications that may increase implant complications.
  • Strategies to identify and prevent unfavorable outcomes in the implant patient.
  • Discussion of site development, including grafting and when grafting may not be the best treatment option.
