Implant Dentistry as a Team Sport: Together, We Can Achieve More…

Welcome to lovely San Diego, California, home of the 2016 ICOI Summer Symposium!

Implant dentistry, once “owned” by few specialties, is today, mainstream dentistry. The benefits of dental implants to our patients are now being provided by clinicians of diverse disciplines and backgrounds, both globally and in the US. However, the ever-growing complexity, the rapid introduction of newer materials and techniques, keep all of us constantly challenged and excited at the same time. To address these contemporary topics, the ICOI Summer Symposium in San Diego will focus on looking at implant dentistry as a Team Sport – the synergistic potential that can offer the best dentistry possible, when talents come together with an interdisciplinary team approach. The distinguished speakers from all over the world will be addressing pertinent topics, such as esthetic evaluation and design, laboratory-clinician communication, digital integration, facial rejuvenation technique, graftless sinus approach, managing implant complications, and much more!…read more

ImpladentDrs. Timothy Kosinski & Robert Miller and Adj. Prof. Maurice Valen
Fee: $180 (10% of proceeds will be donated to IDREF)

Sponsored By: Impladent LTD. Pre-Symposium Course – Silver Sponsor

Attendance is Limited

This course covers a spectrum of pliable preformed bone graft shapes used for clinical procedures with implant placement, from simple and cost effective socket grafting to more advanced clinical concepts in bone regeneration. Surgical techniques and novel biomaterials will be discussed using bone grafting/collagen composite materials, including the resorbable OsteoGen® Bone Grafting Plugs and Strips. Speakers will review state-of-the-art clinical guidelines, surgical techniques for alveolar ridge preservation as well as grafting around immediately placed implants in extensive clinical situations. The science and biological basis of growth factor utilization in bone and soft tissue applications will be reviewed using L-PRF technology combined with the OsteoGen® Plugs. The integration of these principles to generate biologically modified, yet cost effective, biomaterials will be reviewed.

Course Objectives: Upon completion of this program, attendees will:

Demonstrate simple, predictable and cost effective socket grafting techniques without the use of a membrane using the OsteoGen® Bone Grafting Plugs

Learn the crystal structure and use of cost effective bone graft/collagen composite materials that have physiochemical and crystallographic characteristics similar to human bone mineral derived from bioactive resorbable calcium apatite crystal clusters

Review additional surgical applications covering post-extraction grafting around immediate implant placement including filling interproximal and facial gaps after extraction using OsteoGen® Plugs

Discuss the scientific and biological basis of growth factor utilization in bone and soft tissue grafting applications

Learn how to biologically modify cost effective biomaterials for enhanced bone regeneration

AGD Code: 499

Predictable Lateral Ridge Augmentation for Implant Site Development

salvinDr. Avi Schetritt
Fee: $295 (10% of proceeds will be donated to IDREF)

Sponsored By: Salvin Pre-Symposium Course – Silver Sponsor

Hands-On, Attendance is Limited

Tooth extraction results in a net loss of bone volume, often limiting the ability to place implants in an ideal restoratively driven position. Block grafting has been used to increase alveolar ridge width for implant site development but requires a second surgical site and can be associated with increased morbidity. This lecture will demonstrate a simple and predictable method of lateral ridge augmentation using the Guided Bone Regeneration concept. The principles of GBR as well as the step by step procedure will be discussed and demonstrated using clinical cases. The participants will then practice the technique on pig jaws during the hands-on portion of the program.

Course Objectives: Upon completion of this program, attendees will:

Understand the GBR concept and principles.

Apply a simple and predictable lateral ridge augmentation technique to develop implant sites.

Know which bone grafts, membranes and materials to use for lateral ridge augmentation.

AGD Code: 704

Multi Model Implant Approach: Restoring the Narrow Ridge From Evolution to Revolution in Implant Dentistry, Back to the Roots with Narrow Ridge Implants (NRI)

Park-DentalDrs. Ronald Bulard, Ady Palti & Kenneth Judy
Fee: Gratis

Sponsored By: Park Dental Pre-Symposium Course– Silver Sponsor

Hands-On, Attendance is Limited

Learn how to use minimally invasive implant designs when the patient’s health, age or financial situation does not allow advanced bone or soft tissue procedures. Through small diameter implants and narrow ridge implants, a full arch or partial arch restoration is possible. Using the existing bone quantity, minimally invasive implant placement presents an advantage in the daily implant practice. Based on over 40 years of small diameter and narrow ridge implants, the success rate of these procedures, if done properly using the Piezo surgical device, can offer an excellent solution for a number of cases.

Course Objectives:

After the course people will be able to evaluate bone quantity for narrow ridge implants. They will be able to use the Piezo surgical device, perform bone splitting and design prosthetic concepts for these implant types.
