How to minimize surgery in case of peri-implantitis and severe periodontitis
Speakers: Anton Friedmann (Germany), Vincenzo Iorio-Siciliano (Italy)

Non-surgical treatments for severe periodontal and peri- implant infections focus on biofilm removal and inflammation control, pivotal for halting tissue and bone destruction. These treatments underscore subgingival mechanical intervention, addressing the local and systemic implications of periodontitis. Current practices aim for pocket closure and reduced inflammation but face limitations in deep or complex pockets. Adjunctive materials, like hypochlorite/amino acid and hyaluronic acid gels, show promise in enhancing treatment outcomes, including biofilm reduction and tissue regeneration. A novel therapy, integrating these adjuncts, significantly improves periodontal health and pocket closure rates. This approach also offers hope in managing peri-implant defects non-surgically, underscoring its potential against complex intraoral conditions and enhancing patient satisfaction. This session is going to cover the scientific and clinical evidence for this novel concept.

GBR for vertical and horizontal ridge augmentations
Speaker: Hélène Arnal (France)

Guided bone regeneration techniques using resorbable membranes with staged approaches often fall short of the recommended peri-implant bone volume criteria. The Sausage Technique is one of the least invasive scientifically documented technique for horizontal bone augmentation. Moreover, this technique provides most horizontal bone gain than classical GBR techniques. Vertical GBR using PTFE membranes is well documented and is the most frequently used procedure for vertical augmentations. It allows the surgeon to regenerate a ridge thickness in line with the recommended peri-implant bone volume criteria. This workshop will be about the key points required to perform predictable augmentations.
