    Soft tissue management around implant for the successful esthetic outcome.

    November 02nd from 10.00 to 14.15 Athens time


    The recession of the buccal soft tissue margin is a frequent complication of well integrated dental implants. The appearance of metallic structure or even their transparency through the thin buccal soft tissues are common reasons for  patient aesthetic complains. Moreover, bad implant installation frequently results in excessive apical dislocation of the buccal soft tissue margin of the implant supported crown. Soft tissue plastic surgical procedures and bilaminar techniques in particular, can be successfully used in combination with a pre and postsurgical prostethic approaches to increase the volume of the interdental soft tissue, to treat buccal gingival recessions and soft tissue dehiscence around dental implants and to provide the new implant supported crown with an esthetic transmucosal emergency profile. A new mucogingival approach applied to delayed or immediate post-extraction implant placement and loading will be presented.

    Soft Tissue Augmentation for Implant Dentistry

    November 05th from 15.00 to 19.15 Athens time


    Soft tissue management has long been an important part in implant dentistry. It is not only the quantity, but also the quality of the soft tissue around implants that will lead to the long-term stability and success. This presentation will begin with the foundation of soft tissue healing and further lead to the principles of soft tissue surgeries. The clinical applications of soft tissue augmentation in implant dentistry will be reviewed. A variety of surgical techniques will be introduced to treat different types of soft tissue defects. Concepts and techniques for preventive soft tissue management are also incorporated into this lecture. This presentation will focus on clinical decision-making and surgical techniques by which comprehensive guidelines for soft tissue management can be established

    Multidisciplinary Approach to the Management of Dental Alveolar Trauma

    November 13th from 15.00 to 18.30 Athens time


    The treatment of dental alveolar trauma should be a multidisciplinary discussion. Early mixed-dentition injuries ranging from simple displacements to multiple advance intrusions combined with partial to total avulsions will described in detail with special emphasis on the role of orthodontist and periodontist. Similar injuries in the adult dentition will be differentiated. The timing of the guided bone regeneration and implant placement, combined with exquisite soft-tissue management, will be demonstrated on long-term follow-up cases displaying external root resorption and/or ankylosis. Participants will be enlightened by the outstanding results achievable when the focus is always from a multidisciplinary approach in the esthetic zone.

    Seeking the Optimal Aesthetic Result in the Maxillary Anterior

    November 16th from 10.00 to 13.30 Athens time


    Single or multiple tooth extractions, due to periodontal disease, periapical infection, root fracture or dental trauma, may lead to insufficient bone volume for the insertion of endosseous implants. Literature evidence suggests the possibility to compensate for post-extraction marginal ridge contraction using socket preservation techniques, using bone substitutes and collagen membranes via an open-healing concept. On the contrary, augmentation procedures are needed when the pre-existing bone height doesn’t allow for a correct space-related implant insertion, when a proper primary stability cannot be reached or when the prosthetic rehabilitation will provide an unfavorable crown/root ratio. Severe horizontal and vertical bone resorptions require lateral and supracrestal regeneration, a challenge for clinicians since the external soft tissue pressure is considered to be a major reason for failure of the surgical procedure in nonspacemaking bone defects. Guided bone regeneration using non-resorbable membranes, customized titanium mesh as well as compressed collagen membranes have been proposed for horizontal and vertical bone augmentation. Once hard tissue has been successfully augmented, an adequate soft tissue thickness becomes mandatory in order to create healthy and stable peri-implant tissues and to improve the final esthetic outcome.

    Long-term definitive periodontal and endodontic treatment: clinical approaches and evidence of success

    November 18th from 15.00 to 20.15 Athens time


    All dental decisions must be predicated on preserving and improving the esthetic, phonetic, and a functional dentition as perceived by both the therapist and the patient. Although it is impossible to circumvent the modifiers of physical health, patient behavior, financial capabilities, and performance variability as they pertain to treatment modalities, there must be an end point goal of periodontal and endodontic therapy for patients with chronic adult periodontitis.

    Topic to be discussed include: pocket management, periodontal regeneration, furcation treatment and dental implants.

    The critical question: What would we do if this was our own dentition?

    Dr. Gianluca Paniz

    Prosthetic management of periodontal and peri-implant tissues

    November 23th from 10.00 to 13.30 Athens time


    This presentation will focus on the restorative details that enhance the natural gingival esthetic result on restorations supported by teeth and by dental implants.

    The interaction of the prosthesis with the supracrestal tissues, both on teeth and on implants will be discussed looking at biology, gingival architecture, margins design and margin positioning, morphologies of restorative profiles, materials and clinical procedures. Analogue and digital workflows will be discussed.

    Dr. Vanessa Ruiz

    Surgical and Non-surgical laser applications in Periodontology

    November 26th from 10.00 to 12.30 Athens time


    In recent years, various technologies have been introduced in the dental market that aim to improve the treatment and maintenance of teeth, dental implants and other tissues of the oral cavity. One of these tools is laser technology.

    It is necessary that dentists who wish to offer this technology within their daily clinical practices, know which the fundamental bases of the laser are, the safety rules of use, the indications of each wavelength and the protocols of use for each treatment.

    Prosthetic planning to obtain natural esthetics on implants

    November 26th from 12.45 to 15.15 Athens time


    To achieve natural appearence is the main goal when restoring implants in the aesthetic area. Therefore, a precise and proper prosthetic and surgical planning is required.

    New technologies like Intraoral scanning and computer guided surgery can be very helpful and easy to use.

    Along this presentation, a key aspect like the prosthetic emergence profile, will be discussed and some useful surgical and prosthetic tips about how to reach predictable results in the management of the soft tissues will be explained.

    Non-Surgical Peri-implant disease Treatment Protocols: diagnosis, successful follow-up and complication management

    November 30th from 10.00 to 12.30 Athens time


    A particularly emerging topic will be addressed: peri-implant diseases. The non-surgical treatment has proven quite successful in case of mucositis. Vice versa, in case of progressive and irreversible bone loss, the non-surgical solution is not predictable, however, it is recommended as a first therapeutic phase. In some cases, clinically well documented, the non surgical option may have very satisfactory long-term outcomes. In other cases, can help to prolong significantly the survival rate of severely compromised implants.

    It is essential that non-surgical treatment is all the time specific and tailored to the needs of each individual patient. The protocol, particularly composite and differentiated, associated with the use of diode and or Erbium laser, is described and illustrated with clinical images, drawings and videos.

    The long-term success of any dental and peri-implant treatment, carried out in a proper manner, depends essentially on the patient’s degree of cooperation, both in adhering to the recommended recall schedule, and in daily proper home care.

    Surgical Approaches to its management - Peri implantitis

    November 30th from 12.45 to 15.15 Athens time


    Peri-implantitis is bacterial infections of peri-implant supporting tissues, characterized by loss of  supporting bone. A history of periodontitis,  poor oral hygiene,  and  smoking must be considered as risk indicators  for peri-implant diseases.

    In order to control reinfection and limit biological complications, it is of paramount Importance to treat periodontitis present at the residual dentition before implant placement.

    Early interception is a crucial factor that can improve treatment prognosis. The correct diagnosis will facilitate pre-operative selection of appropriate techniques  for the maintenance of peri-implant tissue health.

    The primary objective of surgical treatment in peri-implatitis lesions is to get access to the exposed implant surface in order to optimize the removal of bacterial contaminants and decontamination or conditioning in order to achieve resolution of  the inflammatory lesion.
