“Advances and Innovations in Sinus Lift Procedures and Augmentation Procedures”
Evidence-based reviews of the sinus augmentation procedures over the past decade has shown that implants placed in grafted in maxillary sinuses experience survival rates similar to or better than implants placed in the non-grafted posterior maxilla. The reviews show that utilizing available evidence to select grafting materials, membranes and implant surfaces is what leads to high success rate.
This presentation will focus on the use of that information in the formulation of treatment plans that lead to the most favorable outcomes in clinical practice. Further research from a data base of over 1,000 sinus augmentation surgeries performed at the NYU Department of Implant Dentistry will be presented examined in a step-by-step manner that will allow the clinician to achieve maximum results with minimum complications. Handling of intraoperative and postoperative complications will be discussed. Topics will include:
Evidence-based decision-making for maxillary sinus elevation (proper choice of graft materials and membranes)
Evolution of lateral window sinus elevation techniques through slides and video presentations (rotary handpieece, Piezosurgery, DASK technique)
Transcrestal sinus elevation techniques (osteotome, Physiolift, balloon techniques)

“Immediate Implant Placement for Clinical Excellence and Patient Satisfaction”
(8:30 a.m. – 12:00 noon)
Immediate implant placement into extraction sockets cuts down on treatment time, the number of surgical procedures and assists in maintaining the bone and soft tissue form. This course outlines techniques that enable the clinician to extract teeth, place implants immediately into sockets, and retain the existing form of the soft tissues. Subgingival healing devices are used to assist in the maintenance of this gingival form. Surgical procedures will be outlined that allow the surgeon to graft bone and soft tissue at the time of immediate implant placement.
“Advances and Innovations in Dental Lasers for Surgical Success”
(1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.)
Lasers are being incorporated into dental practices to assist in periodontal and implant therapy. The Biolase Waterlase IPlus Erbium Yagg Laser along with the patented Radial Firing Tips (RFPT) has been developed to treat Periodontal disease, Mucocitis and Peri Implantitis. This machine in most cases has replaced the need for Surgical incisions with a scalpel and can be achieved without sutures This Laser is effective for Hard and Soft tissues and can be used to cut tooth, bone, soft tissue and remove calculus from deep pockets. Most periodontal lasers cut with heat. This Waterlase IPlus combines laser energy and a patented spray of water therefore cutting cold, resulting in less swelling and far less post-operative discomfort to the patient. For this reason, it can also be used to treat inflammation around implants as heat cannot be associated with implant therapy .Paients on blood thinning medications in most cases can be treated without going off their medications
The laser can also be used treat the following;
- Minimally invasive crown lengthening
- Circumferential fiberotomy post orthodontics
- Depigmentation of the gums
- Extractions for medically compromised patients. Patients do not need to go off blood thinners for procedures, treating painful ulcers, treating gum and oral disorders like epithelial disorders, lichen planus, pemphigoid
The distinct advantage of laser therapy is the efficiency of treatment with far less stress and discomfort to the patient. Dental practitioners are using the Waterlase IPlus to treat all these periodontal, Implant and soft tissue disorders.

“Advances and Innovations in Ridge Augmentation: Aesthetics and Clinical Considerations”
There is no doubt that augmentative procedures are common in the daily practice. For the narrow alveolar ridge, there are various alveolar extension plastic procedures allowing increase the width of the ridge with many limitations. However, augmentative procedures are successful and dependent on different host response and definitely the surgical approach. The presenter will demonstrate different concepts of therapy and will address the biological concepts besides the management of complications. The surgical steps and the requirements for the success are here discussed presenting also the opportunity of treatment using different loading protocols. The management of the insufficient width as well as the increase in the height in the posterior and anterior parts of the jaws will be demonstrated. Special focus will be the vertical augmentation technique in order to have a good and predictable result.

“Step by Step Evolution: from the Classic Methods to the Digital Implantology”
Improving the quality of dental work should involve step by step evolution from the classic methods to the digital implantology. Errors in comprehensive implantoprosthetic planning, poor communication between dental lab and the dentist, lack or insufficient photographic records, unsatisfying quality of the final restoration and time-consuming try-ins together with corrections may lead to lack of satisfaction in the field of professional dental life.
The author will compare classic complex planning and workflow of the implantoprosthetic reconstructions with the fully digital cases. Comparing the level of planning, quality, accuracy, documentation, chair time and job satisfaction clearly speak in favour of modern technologies that have become available today.
