CONCEPTS OF TREATMENT OF PERIODONTALLY COMPROMISED PATIENTS AND PERI-IMPLANT INFECTIONS


Friday, November 16, 2018, Verona, Italy

Speaker

Prof Vincenzo Iorio-Siciliano
Department of Periodontology, University of Catanzaro, Italy

Course objectives

Non-surgical therapy remains the cornerstone of periodontal treatment. Patient compliance, proper selection and application of adjunctive antimicrobial agents for sustained biofilm control are important elements in achieving successful long-term results in the non-surgical periodontal and peri-implant therapy. The emerging topic to be addressed in this course will be peri-implantitis. The non-surgical treatment of this condition has proven quite successful in the case of mucositis. Vice versa, in the case of progressive and irreversible bone loss, the non-surgical solution is not predictable, however, it is recommended as a first therapeutic phase.

Speaker

Prof Anton Sculean
Chairman Department of Periodontology, University of Berne, Switzerland

Course objectives

Predictable coverage of multiple adjacent recessions and of single mandibular deep recessions is still a challenge for the clinician. New data indicate that the use of the modified coronally advanced tunnel (MCAT) or the newly developed laterally moved tunnel (LMT) in conjunction with different biologic factors, connective tissue grafts, certain collagen based soft tissue grafts or combinations thereof may result in predictable coverage of single and multiple adjacent gingival recessions providing also long-term stability. Moreover, in certain, well selected cases this technique can also be successfully applied to correct soft tissue defects around dental implants. The present lecture will provide a comprehensive treatment philosophy on the surgical risk factors and biologic principles that need to be considered to optimize the results. Presentations of clinical cases and of surgical videos will demonstrate the step-by-step procedure for the MCAT and LMT in the treatment of various types of soft tissue defects around teeth and dental implants. Long-term results with a follow-up of up to 6 years support the clinical relevance of these techniques. Furthermore, a novel surgical technique, e.g. the modified free gingival graft/connective tissue graft technique for the increase of keratinized tissue width will be also presented.

Concepts of soft- and hard tissue management around teeth and implants.

Speaker

Prof Stefan Fickl
Professor in the department of Periodontology, University of Wuerzburg, Germany

Course objectives

Today techniques to restore hard- and soft tissue around teeth and implants are quite similar. Soft tissue management around teeth involves distinguished grafting techniques to restore the gingival architecture. Here soft tissue healing is of most importance. Hyaluronic acid can help in these cases to speed up wound healing and by this improve the predictability of the treatment result. Also in implant dentistry grafting techniques from the field of periodontal plastic surgery have been implemented and can improve the esthetic result of implants in the anterior zone.

In this interactive hands-on workshop we will discuss different surgical approaches to correct soft- and hard tissue around teeth and implants.

DT Study Club – Webinar with Marisa Roncati

How to deal with the biofilm – new approaches in periodontitis, mucositis and peri-implantitis.


Non-surgical therapy remains the cornerstone of periodontal treatment. Patient compliance and proper selection and application of adjunctive antimicrobial agents for sustained biofilm control are important elements in achieving successful long-term results in the non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Non-surgical therapy remains the cornerstone of periodontal treatment. Attention to detail, patient compliance and proper selection and application of adjunctive antimicrobial agents for sustained biofilm control are important elements in achieving successful long-term results. Frequent re-evaluation and careful monitoring allows the practitioner the opportunity to intervene early in the disease state, to reverse or arrest the progression of periodontal and peri-implant diseases, with meticulous non-surgical anti-infective therapy. Various treatment modalities, including, antimicrobial therapy, gingival irrigations, and host modulation, may be used as adjunctive treatments in the non-surgical management of periodontal infections.

The emerging topic to be addressed in this dental webinar will be peri-implantitis. The non-surgical treatment of this condition has proven quite successful in the case of mucositis. Vice versa, in the case of progressive and irreversible bone loss, the non-surgical solution is not predictable, however, it is recommended as a first therapeutic phase. In some well documented clinical cases, the non-surgical option may have very satisfactory long- term outcomes. In other cases, it can help to significantly prolonging the survival rate of severely compromised implants. The protocol, particularly composite and differentiated, associated with the use of PERISOLV, will be described with clinical images, drawings and videos.
