Orcan Yüksel and Bernhard Giesenhagen have developed a technique which allows simultaneous bone augmentation and implantation in one single procedure. The new “bone ring augmentation technique” is a single operation that replaces the typical two-stage method used for bone augmentation and restoration. This therapy reduces patient treatment time by approximately five months compared to traditional bone block augmentation. In the hands-on part the attendees will perform the step-by-step bone ring surgical protocol on models.

Esthetic cases can be challenging. What options do you have if patients with a thin gingiva type request an esthetic treatment? How well equipped are you for treating patients who ask for a metal-free treatment? In dentistry today, ceramic materials are widely accepted in prosthetic reconstruction. Contrary to this, implants made from Zirconium-dioxide are not yet part of the standard treatment but can be an attractive alternative to titanium. This session will focus on:

Dr. Oliver Blume will provide an overview of the possibilities and limitations of existing guided bone regeneration methods as well as different bone substitute materials. He will detail the CAD/CAM bone block techniques and clinical learning from years of experience. Clinical cases will be presented to help the audience understand the indications, cases identification, and clinical applications of the patient specific bone block. Dr. Blume will also discuss potential complications and how to avoid them.
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes, while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore become cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition for sub-optimal esthetic outcomes, and treatment plan accordingly. An immediate implant placement and provisionalization protocol offers the best potential for predictable esthetic outcomes when utilized in intact sites. This approach however, is not without risks and precautions must be taken to mitigate the potential for undesired sequelae. This presentation will feature a comprehensive description of the treatment rationale and technique considerations, including a discussion on the management of high risk sites and complications.
Patients have placed an emphasis on immediate tooth replacement and more often request full-arch immediate load solutions with shorter treatment times and fewer appointments. While this is complex, the procedure has demonstrated high implant and prosthesis survival rates. This session will demonstrate how proper case selection, both traditional and digital treatment planning, surgical and loading protocols, and the interdisciplinary team approach are keys to clinical success.
Many restorative materials and digital workflows have been introduced in recent years but the critical link remains the relationship between the dental practice and dental lab. This collaboration results in ideal tooth replacement therapy for the patient. Straumann’s integrated workflow enhances interdisciplinary communication to maximize treatment outcomes. This lecture will focus on the integration of coDiagnostiX™ with Straumann CARES® Visual software to deliver immediate custom provisionals optimizing soft tissue management in a fully digital and model-free workflow.
According to epidemiological studies, one or both of the maxillary lateral incisors are congenitally missing in approximately 2%1 of the population; that is approximately 6 million people in the United States.* The Straumann Bone Level Tapered 2.9mm implant is a solution for compromised situations such as reduced interdental spaces. There is increasing need to treat patients without GBR and to simplify the procedures.*
Pending 510(k) Clearance
*The Bone Level Tapered Ø 2.9mm is indicated for the maxillary lateral incisors and mandibular incisors only.
