The Easy Way to Incorporate Alveolar Ridge Preservation in Your Practice Today

Dr. Véronique Benhamou

Ridge preservation has been shown to be a successful treatment for maintaining horizontal and vertical ridge dimension after extraction. The simple application of an atelocollagen bone augmentation material into an extraction socket significantly reduces dimensional changes. This procedure is easy and predictable, and it reduces patient morbidity and cost, compared with other techniques that may be needed in the absence of ridge preservation. Various applications of this novel material will be discussed, and cases will be presented to illustrate the recommended surgical technique, case selection and the ease of manipulation of the material.

3:00 - 3:45 PM
Treatment of Peri-implantitis with Er:YAG Laser

Dr. Donald Clem

While dental implants have arguably been considered one of the most significant advances in dental treatment, they are not impervious to biologic complications.  While the percentage ranges of implants affected exhibits a wide range, the periodontist is clearly faced with a challenging dilemma.  In addition, many periodontists are seeing more cases of peri-implantitis as we see literally hundreds of implant manufacturers come and go, minimally trained clinicians attempting advanced grafting and implant installations with little in the way of convincing data.  Along with this clinical challenge, we are faced with multiple treatment recommendations and no universally accepted therapy. This presentation will address many of the problems we faced, review the literature and present options for treatment to manage these cases.
