Sessions for Friday, June 7

Session I: The Creation of Optimal Ceramic Esthetics

Daniel Nathanson (Moderator)
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Grand Ballroom (Salon G-K)

The quest for the perfect material to create optimal dental esthetics has led to remarkable progress, but we continue to learn new innovations. This panel will present pertinent information ranging from minimally invasive all-ceramic restorations to complex prosthodontics. It is important to establish a protocol that recognizes the need for correct tooth preparation in concert with the selection of the restorative material to achieve both function and esthetics.

• Learn to select the optimal material for your patient.
• Identify the appropriate tooth preparation for the situation.
• Appreciate the value of CAD/CAM in esthetic dentistry.

Session II: Bone Preservation for Compromised Extraction Sites

Diego Velแsquez (Moderator)
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Grand Ballroom (Salon E, F)

The acceptance of osseointegrated implants for the replacement of missing anterior teeth has identified the need to preserve the supporting alveolar process following extraction of teeth with prominent roots. It is apparent that the patient benefits from regenerative treatment at the time of extraction, and this panel will present the biologic and clinical observations. They will consider the alternatives of regeneration and/or the placement of implants at the time of extraction. The ultimate goal is the long-term preservation of soft and hard tissues when treating compromised extraction sites.

• Review the scientific evidence as to preservation of the alveolar process with extractions.
• Learn when immediate implant placement in an extraction socket is appropriate.
• Consider the biomaterial selection for compromised extraction sites.

Session III: The Realistic End Point Goals of Periodontal Regeneration

Sergio De Paoli (Moderator)
8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Grand Ballroom (Salon A-D)

Periodontal regeneration is the ultimate goal for the treatment of adult periodontitis. The contemporary availability of biologics, barrier membranes, and laser therapy provide many opportunities to reverse the tissue destruction of disease. In spite of this, questions persist as to the effort required, the cost-effectiveness, and the esthetic result. This panel will present an organized selection of cases together with a background of evidence to guide your decisions.

• Learn surgical techniques to gain regenerative success.
• Understand the value of tissue engineering.
• Recognize the role of laser surgery for periodontal regeneration.

Session IV: Adult Orthodontics to Resolve Spacing and Tissue Deficiencies

Nicholas M. Dello Russo (Moderator)
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Grand Ballroom (Salon A-D)

Adult orthodontic intervention provides a serious benefit to many patients from both an esthetic and functional basis. This is true for both dentate and implant spatial relations and frequently can be isolated to a specific area of correction. It also has the capacity to reposition hard and soft tissue relationships. There is emerging clinical evidence that many of these procedures can reach their culmination more efficiently than anticipated.

• Learn the goals of hard and soft tissue change with tooth movement.
• Observe the end point goals that are possible.
• Recognize that optimal outcomes may occur in a shorter time frame.
