Modern Protocols for Simplifying Bone Rigeneration in Advanced Implant Dentistry
Via Rita Levi Montalcini, 4, 20090 Pieve Emanuele MI, firstname.lastname@example.org
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in requests for the rehabilitation of partial or total edentulism and particularly, on implants, which require high surgical, periodontal and prosthetic skills. Rehabilitation needs are not only functional, but should also address the aesthetic demands.
Frequently, clinicians are faced with critical and challenging situations caused by extensive bone defects related to previous periodontal disease, early loss of dental elements due to malpractice or trauma, lack of bone tissue in the posterior maxilla due to expansion of the maxillary sinus, or due to lack or reduction of an adequate quantity of keratinized mucosa.
Good knowledge of such surgical techniques is essential to refine the skills in regenerative / reconstructive bone surgery and soft tissue reconstruction, as well as a proper preoperative planning according to the principle of prosthetically guided regeneration (PGR), in order to optimize results from a functional andaesthetic point of view.
However, an adequate knowledge of surgical anatomy of the oral cavity cannot be ignored, to avoid damages of important anatomical structures during regenerative/reconstructive procedures (for example, the elevation of the maxillary sinus, bone harvesting from the oral cavity, epithelial-connective tissue harvesting from the palate, etc.), and not negligible medico-legal consequences.
This course offers the unique opportunity to have simultaneously:
a) the opportunity to learn the basic principles of regenerative and reconstructive techniques of bone and soft tissue defects and;
b) the possibility to carry out practical exercises on the corpse, under the guidance of expert tutors.
The course combines theoretical lectures and videos on advanced implant surgeries with a practical part in the anatomy lab. Following the expert led lectures, participants can experience and put immediately in practice various procedures described in the theoretical part, with a specific focus on how to identify and protect the most important anatomical structures “at risk” that can be encountered during surgeries (such as the lower alveolar nerve, the lingual nerve, the mental nerve, the facial artery, the branches of the infra-orbital nerve, etc.). The course is aimed at professionals who have already gained experience in implantology, but who desire to refine their practical and theoretical knowledge in order to deal with advanced / complex clinical situations.
