DC Forum: Transitional Restorative Options For Optimal Soft Tissue Design and Aesthetics Around Dental Implants

September 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Forum, 4825 Bethesda Avenue, Suite 302
Bethesda, MD 20814 United States

Transitional prosthesis following teeth extractions and placement of dental implants is an important part of the overall treatment. It provides patients with the necessary function and aesthetics while awaiting for the definitive restorations. In this forum, we will discuss the options for both fixed and removable transitional restorations during the healing phase. We will also discuss implant-supported transitional restorative options including customized healing abutments and provisional restorations and their role in designing the ideal soft tissue architecture.

The dental implant surgical and restorative markets are forecasted to reach 12.32 billion by 2021. Such substantial industry growth indicates that many dental hygienists will encounter patients with implant dentistry within their clinical practice. With the increased incidence of peri-implant diseases, studies have indicated the maintenance phase to be the most important aspect for long term success. While protocols for implant maintenance remain unclear, the role of the dental hygienist in the preservation of peri-implant tissues has been recognized internationally. A 2015 consensus report published by the 10th European Consensus Conference (EuCC) addressing peri-implant inflammation acknowledged that detection and prevention of peri-implant diseases is contingent upon the diagnostic and therapeutic skill of the clinician.

This multifaceted hands-on program will explore the fundamentals of laser science, periodontal endoscopy, subgingival powder streaming with glycine powder and instrumentation in the non-surgical treatment of peri-implant and periodontal diseases. Working with simulation exercises, this workshop is designed to build confidence and gain clinical understanding for dental hygienists’ in the delivery of advanced treatment protocols.

Join us. Your journey to become an Implant Care Practitioner (ICP) begins here!

DC Forum: Contemporary Tools for Contemporary Implant Dentistry

November 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Forum, 4825 Bethesda Avenue, Suite 302
Bethesda, MD 20814 United States

In recent years, technological and clinical advances have transformed the practice of implant dentistry. Implant connections that allow for a harmonious relationship between restorative components, bone and peri-implant gingiva have shown the potential to enhance final esthetic outcomes. Immediate loading of complete and partially edentulous cases has become a well-established concept. In addition, the combination of high-quality scanners, low-cost 3D printers and open software place the dental team in a unique position to control all aspects of implant therapy. This exciting presentation will focus on various aspects of the implant restorative process with a focus on recent technological advances. Topics will include diagnosis and treatment planning in the esthetic zone, immediate implant placement and provisionalization, intraoral scanning, 3D printing and material selection for the final restoration.

Participants will learn:

  • Generate treatment plans that will maximize esthetic results
  • Understand techniques and materials used for the fabrication of immediate provisional restorations
  • Identify factors to consider in the material selection of final prostheses
  • Utilize multiple restorative techniques to improve the final esthetic outcome
  • Name practical intraoral scanning and 3D printing applications to improve teamwork communication, increase efficiency and enhance clinical results.

Evidences about the oral systemic link declare an adequate dentition as medically necessary for quality of life. According to the American College of Prosthodontics, more than 36 million Americans are edentulous with approximately 23 million Americans being completely edentulous. Tooth loss is a debilitating, life altering, and irreversible disease. A hot topic in contemporary medicine is the health professions need to prepare for a growing population. Areas of particular interests include dentistry, older patients, and edentulism. One concern is that as the population grows so will their susceptibility to oral disease and the concluding, tooth loss.

Advances in restorative dentistry have revolutionized our ability to revive even the hopeless dentition. Implant dentistry has improved the lives of millions of edentate people restoring facial appearance, speech, and eating ability. With such therapeutic value, dental implants have become the standard of care for the replacement of missing teeth. Consider that with a growing population, dental hygienists need to become educated about the possible dental implant complications and their origins. Also needing close study is how to safely and effectively meet the dental hygiene needs of the edentulous patient with advanced implant dentistry.

This course is one of the most comprehensive programs on this topic discussing a range of complications in implant dentistry, prevention strategies, diagnostic, and management modalities, Participants will learn through a multi-disciplinary perspective reviewing surgical, restorative, laboratory, and maintenance phases of implant dentistry as well as solutions to complications.
