Indication-based abutment selection

Dr. Julia-Gabriela Wittneben

The possibilities and expectations of achieving a successful functional and esthetic outcome have been raised with the evolution of implant designs, prosthetic components and dental materials. Even after a successful surgical approach, the prosthodontic finalization remains challenging. The overall focus of this webinar will remain on the selection of implant abutments more specifically, focusing on different indications, materials and abutment types. Especially the selection of implant abutments in the esthetic zone seems still challenging and has an influence on the final esthetic result. This will be highlighted also in respect to the evidence concerning retention type (screw versus cement). All aspects of the lecture will be presented with reference to contemporary literature and clinical studies. The objective of this lecture is therefore to provide a summary of the clinical evidence which is of relevance to the practitioners perspective of implant prosthetic treatment

Inflammation and type 2 diabetes: pathogenesis and current treatment protocols

Prof. Marc Y. Donath MD

In patients with type 2 diabetes an inflammatory process is present. This inflammation is due to a pathological activation of the innate immune system, caused by metabolic stress and is partly governed by IL-1 signaling. We identified the role of IL-1β and insulin in the regulation of metabolism and immunity in response to food intake. Yet, as it becomes chronic, activation of auto-inflammatory processes may then become deleterious.

A new SPLIT CREST technique

Prof. Tomaso Vercellotti

A reduced crestal bone volume is frequently encountered in implantology, with horizontal bone defects being certainly the most common occurrence. The introduction of PiezoImplants has considerably simplified the implant therapy of thin crestal bone, because the rectangular section of the new implants’ wedge shape is a better fit for the crestal anatomy.

Computer-controlled local anaesthesia & paediatric patients: how to make your injections safe and effective

Dr. Aneta Olszewska DDS, PhD

Local anaesthesia can often be unbearable for young patients and stressful for a dentist. A computer-controlled local anaesthesia system allows the delivery speed and pressure to be adjusted to the clinical situation, developmental, anatomical, and physiological tissue differences observed in children. Effective anaesthesia is achieved with a lower amount of analgesic reducing the risk of toxic or allergic reactions and minimizing discomfort and sensation of numbness after the treatment. It helps prevent unwanted self- injuries to the lips, cheeks, and tongue.

Ageing and periodontal disease: look out before you leap

Dr. Eric Thevissen

Despite all efforts of dental professionals the prevalence and incidence of total edentulism is still increasing on a global scale. Second observation from a recent meta review in JDR (2020) was that total tooth loss is decreasing in low-income countries while, on the other hand, it is increasing in upper- or middle-income countries. Is periodontal disease the main responsible for this evolution?

The (Medication) Matrix! Essential Pharmacology for Treating Medically Complex Geriatric Dental Patient

Thomas Viola RPh, C.C.P

Dental professionals must frequently draw upon their knowledge of pharmacology for optimal care of today’s medically complex geriatric dental patients. However, armed with relatively brief exposure to such a vast subject during formal education and faced with ever-changing medication therapy guidelines, many dental professionals simply cannot keep up with the latest trends in disease state management.

Complications and side effects of cancer therapy: How to prevent and treat

Prof. Dr. Juliana Schussel MSc, PhD

Cancer treatment is by its very nature highly cytotoxic. In this way, cells and tissues are affected in different ways and patients may experience different reactions and adverse effects. The mouth is a site often affected in treatment and therefore the dentist should be involved in preventing and treating possible complications, before, during and after the end of cancer treatment.

Oral cancer: Early detection, diagnosis and treatment complications

Prof. Dr. Otilija Kutanovaitė MD

400,000 to 500,000 new cases world wide of oral cancer are diagnosed and causes about 150,000 deaths per year. More than 60 percent of the patients are diagnosed with late stage (III or IV stage) disease, therefore, 5-year overall survival rate is as low as 50 percent. Stage I-II may have excellent cure rates with minor surgery and few functional sequelae, highlighting the necessity for early diagnosis and heightened awareness in dentists.
