Knowing the efficacy of implant non-surgical treatments
Non-surgical treatment of peri‐implant diseases: theory and hands-on training
Speaker: Gonçalo Assis (Portugal)
Peri-implant pathologies have a high prevalence in the population. Viable biofilm control is of particular importance in limiting inflammation which can lead to bone loss or loss of soft tissues. Performing this procedure minimally invasively allows the patient to adhere to a maintenance protocol. In this training we will highlight the clinical procedures used in order to maintain adequate peri-implant health by using the Guided Biofilm Therapy concept, describing their potentialities and limitations, using documentation with clinical cases and hands-on training with pre-clinical models.
Knowing the efficacy of GBT in periodontal non-surgical treatment and non-surgical treatment of implant diseases
Non-surgical treatment of periodontal and peri‐implant diseases: theory concepts (advantages and limitations) and hands-on training
Ricardo Faria Almeida (Portugal)
Periodontal and peri-implant diseases have high prevalence in the clinical practice nowadays. The new research show us how to deal with the treatment of both diseases, based in the minimally invasive therapies, like the GBT. The purpose of this hands-on course will be to discuss the real advantages of these new concepts and how to apply it to the clinical practice. The presentation will be based in theorical concepts and clinical cases (videos), to help the clinicians to used it in a daily practice. We will also use the pre-clinical models to describe the advantages, potentialities and limitations of this new protocol

Identifying candidates for immediate placement in a post-extraction socket in the anterior zone; use tissue management guidelines to preserve natural gingival contours and execute necessary surgical techniques
Update on current research and presentation of a novel Implant design for post extraction immediate loading with hard and soft tissue preservation
Hugo De Bruyn (Belgium)
Pär-Olov Östman (Sweden)
Immediate implant placement in a post-extraction socket in the aesthetic zone is challenging. Anatomic challenges may necessitate cement-retained restorations or angled abutments, neither optimal for preserving mid-facial tissue.
We’ll demonstrate how the use of an implant with a novel design, Inverta, ™ together with appropriate screw-retained restoration can help maximize bone and soft tissue volume. A dual or Co-Axis® Implant design allows for subcrestal angle correction.
After the workshop, participants should be able to:
