Comprehending Maxillofacial Anatomy and Related Pathology with CBCT

Description:
The advent of CBCT has brought a great deal of excitement to the dental professionals. For the first time, we have a diagnostic tool which has overcome the known disadvantages of the traditional projectional dental diagnostic images (periapical and panoramic radiographs) with the provision of sharp sectional images at any desired plane (multiplannar imaging). However, the interpretation of these images is somewhat challenging mainly due to the anatomical complexity of the maxillofacial region and the lack of familiarity of the profession with multiplannar imaging. This course will review in detail the anatomy of the certain challenging sites (neck, paranasal sinuses etc) of maxillofacial region and discuss the related pathological entities. Often times these may be simply incidental findings fact that raises the degree of the responsibility of the dental professional.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

Lasers in Contemporary Implant and Restorative Dentistry: A Microscopic Perspective Premium Member Content

Lasers in Contemporary Implant and Restorative Dentistry: A Microscopic Perspective
In the lecture, we will discuss the role of lasers after the implant has been placed. We will demonstrate how it can be used to improve healing. It can be used during uncovery. It can be used in periimplant tissue removal, and even in the exciting world of periimplantitis. Clinical cases will be presented showing hard-tissue lasers being used for decortication as an alternative to traditional means. We will focus on why an electrosurge may be damaging to your implants, and may cause you more problems than benefits, and why a diode-laser may be your treatment of choice.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.
