Allogene Knochenersatzmaterialien für die natürliche Knochenregeneration
Speaker: Daniel Rothamel (Germany)

Zahlreiche wissenschaftliche Studien zeigen, dass Allografts in der Anwendung dem patienteneigenen Knochen am ähnlichsten sind und schnell einheilen, ohne die Patienten durch eine Eigenknochenentnahme zu belasten. Bei diesem Workshop werden Grundlagen und Techniken zur Hartgewebeaugmentation mit Allografts anhand von Patientenfällen gezeigt. Zudem werden bei praktischen Übungen die Anwendungsmöglichkeiten demonstriert.  Die praktischen Übungen am Modell beinhalten die Anwendung allogener Materialien in partikulärer Form, Blockaugmentation und Schalentechnik.


The open healing concept – applications in modern implant dentistry
Speaker: Robert Oretti (United Kingdom)

The open wound concept is well referenced in the literature and includes the application of a guided bone regenerative procedure at the same time as tooth removal and/or implant placement. With correct application, the assimilation of the bone graft is not impeded or compromised even though primary closure of the soft tissues is not achieved.  Additionally, such procedures can be used for the partially and severely damaged socket at the same time as tooth removal. In this hands-on workshop participants will learn to choose different implant treatment options with emphasis on evidence-based dentistry and the steps to obtain passive closure over the bone graft without disturbing the muco-gingival line.


Material selection for better and predictable GBR/GTR outcomes with biomaterials
Sascha Virnik (Austria)

Bone augmentation is crucial for bone lose cases, but there are risks and complications we need to be aware of. Are there any materials we can use to gain better results and to overcome complications? 

In this session, we review clinical cases, discuss different treatment approaches and techniques as well as risk- and complication management.

Attendees experience regenerative products for socket preservation, sinus augmentation and horizontal and vertical ridge augmentation on pig jaws. 

They understand

  • the benefits of using cross-linked collagen biomaterials
  • risk management for lateral and horizontal augmentation procedures
  • the handling of cross-linked collagen biomaterials: OSSIX® Plus, OSSIX® Volumax and OSSIX™ Bone


Improving biological and esthetic results in soft and hard tissue regeneration
Michele Perelli (Italy)

Dentists face different scenarios due to tooth loss, periodontal disease, reduced quantity and quality of keratinized tissue as well as reduced amount of bone. This workshop will focus on resorbable collagen materials for adequate results, tissue harmony and soft tissue management, reconstruction techniques and suturing techniques.

Attendees will learn to:

  • Analyze soft and hard tissues prior to surgery from a mucogingival standpoint
  • Manage soft tissues to achieve best esthetic and biological results
  • Use the OSSIX® cross-linked collagen biomaterials correctly in different clinical scenarios


Mastering extensive bone augmentation with Yxoss CBR® fully-protect

Marco Ronda (Italy)

Doing extensive augmentations in a predictable way is challenging. Learn in this session in theory and practice

Which advantages and facilitations an individually fabricated 3D titanium mesh offers

  • The clinical procedure step by step
  • Possible complications during and after surgery and how to avoid them
  • Soft tissue management in combination with the Yxoss CBR® technology

    You will perform the correct procedure on a mouth model. The mouth model was created based on patient data from the practice of Dr. Ronda. You will therefore work on a real patient case in the workshop and see how Dr Ronda has clinically managed this case.


Ridge Preservation or Immediate Implant? - Decision tree and step-by-step approach

Nadja Nänni (Switzerland)

After tooth extraction the alveolar ridge undergoes inevitable physiological changes. In order to compensate for these changes, the concept of Alveolar Ridge Preservation (ARP) has been introduced. The placement of an immediate implant is a different concept that may be chosen by the clinician.
Participants will be able to experience both a ridge preservation procedure and an immediate placement of an implant into an extraction socket followed by a simultaneous GBR procedure in a tell / show / do-manner. The hands-on workshop will be followed by a Q&A-session allowing for further discussion of the topic.

9:00-11:30 or 14:00-16:30

From minimal invasive Bone Augmentation “Carota Technique” to SBB 3D Grafting
Fouad Khoury (Germany)

Reconstruction of bony defects with autogenous bone grafts is still today the gold standard. The Carota technique, with the use of a stable bone core harvested with a trephine from the implant site during implant bed preparation, is offering new dimension for bone grafting with simultaneous implant insertion. Bone augmentation with coverage of exposed implant threads up to 10mm can be successfully performed with this minimal invasive approach. The harvested bone core is stabilized on the top of the defect through compression with micro screws. The remaining gap is covered with bone chips. However, two & 3 dimensional severe bony defects are treated with bone block grafts harvested from the mandible, and used following the split bone block (SBB) technique.

9:00-11:30 or 14:00-16:30

Paradigm Change - Concepts to avoid surgeries for peri-implant infections
Speaker : Anton Friedmann

Despite thorough hygiene measures, in many cases, infectious diseases like mucositis, shallow peri-implantitis as well as severe periodontitis cannot be successfully controlled non-surgically and require invasive interventions.

The CLEAN&SEAL® non-surgical therapy contributes to shifting or avoiding surgery in cases of mucositis, shallow peri-implantitis, and severe periodontitis.

Evidence and experience in decision making for augmentation procedures 

Bilal Al-Nawas (Germany)

Augmentation procedures in dental implantology often are based on weak external evidence. Individual surgical experience also plays a role. Some procedures are predictable, whereas others largely depend on individual surgical skills. Short implants, narrow diameter implants or tilted implants often are valid treatment alternatives. Based on the scientific developments in recent years the indications for augmentation procedures from “small to large” are discussed in this workshop. GBR, split procedures, onlay grafts, sinus floor elevation have been modified in the last years, consequently the focus will also be on the “how to”. 


Piezo-based tooth extraction along with blood concentrates reduce the socket bone atrophy during healing
Shahram Ghanaati (Germany)

Tooth extraction is still the main surgical approach of every dentist worldwide. Remaining the socket walls by an atraumatic extraction is the key factor for containing the anatomic shape of the socket walls and a successful bone regeneration within the socket. 

In the last years piezo based surgery has been more and more established for sinus lift or ridge split procedures.

Few to no attention is presently given to piezo-based tooth extraction, which is not only a very atraumatic experience for the patient. It is indeed also a new dimension of focused tooth extraction based on biological principles rather than the force power of dentists arm and hand.

The focus of the present workshop is on piezo-based tooth extraction and treatment of the socket with blood concentrates. A step-by-step demonstration of tooth extraction with piezo tips, especially designed for tooth extraction, will be demonstrated along with clinical cases and video sequences. Additionally, the proper use of solid blood concentrates will be presented as a potential concept for socket preservation and socket seal.


Immediate implantation of ceramic implants in all alveoli
Speaker: Karl Ulrich Volz (Germany)

In this Table Clinic, an original patient model, which was digitized and printed true to life, will be used to demonstrate live what must be considered when implanting SDS ceramic implants in the various alveoli. 

Implants are placed in positions 11, 13, 15, 17, 37 and 35 in the upper jaw.

The patient whose Dicom data are used for this was actually implanted with balcony implants in regions 16 and 46, so in addition to the practical demonstration, the result of this case can be presented.


New possibilities for residue-free implant navigation
Speaker: Karl Ulrich Volz (Germany)

The newest implant navigation systems are not only great for less experienced practitioners because they make positioning implants super easy, but they also offer more experienced practitioners the possibility to accelerate the whole process because the provisionals are prefabricated and can be fitted directly. Despite these fantastic developments, there is still lots to improve about these new systems. Unfortunately, many new systems are not extremely precise and also not always residue-free: components originating from the drill or the sleeve can be transported into the socket and could  peri-implantitis. In this workshop, we will be demonstrating two new systems using a model jaw. One system is a full-guided system and the other is an ad hoc navigation system. Both are the first and only systems to be certified by the Clean Implant Foundation as completely residue-free.
