David Wong, DDS : Soft Tissue Grafting

On Friday, June 22, David Wong, DDS will provide an overview of bone grafting techniques such as socket grafting and ridge augmentation as well as basic soft tissue grafting surgery utilizing alternatives to the patient’s own palatal tissue. Hard and soft tissue management is a vital part of successful implant and restorative therapy.

David Wong, DDS is a board-certified Periodontist in private practice in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He received his undergraduate education and dental training at the University of Oklahoma and went on to complete a three year residency in periodontics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology as well as a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and a published author in several peer-reviewed dental journals but has also reached a mainstream audience in media such as Fox News and the Wall Street Journal.

8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Soft Tissue Grafting

Course objectives:

  • Provide a rationale for socket grafting
  • Introduce the 3 types of sockets and the various techniques for grafting
  • How to choose a bone graft material
  • How to determine when a membrane is required
  • Provide an introduction into guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedures
  • Dealing with failed implants and their “sockets”
  • Discuss the principles of bone grafting
  • “Just say ‘no’ to the palate”: Root coverage techniques utilizing allografts
  • Managing the soft tissue in unique implant situations
  • Surgical management of basic implant complications
  • Soft tissue grafting techniques in perio-restorative situations

Curry Leavitt, DMD MS : Digital Workflow for Surgical Implants

What is true success when it comes to restoring teeth with dental implants? Is it just replacing teeth or is it meeting every esthetic and functional criteria standard we possess. Whether it be a single unit, an anterior vs a posterior tooth or full arch rehabilitation: Can this success be met easier, less invasive and more predictable?

On Saturday, June 23, 2018, Curry Leavitt, DMD MS will present a program on understanding the capabilities of a digital workflow.

This full day discussion will enable us to gain the knowledge to utilize digital impressions, fully computer guided surgery, and immediate temporization techniques to enable final prosthesis predictability. Today we have the technology to provide less invasive procedures, quicker recovery and better long term predictability. Understanding diagnostic, surgical and prosthetic protocol will help us meet the patients expectations and ultimately give the best long lasting results.

Curry Leavitt, DMD MS is a 2007 Cum Laude graduate of Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia. In 2010, he attended University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry where he earned a Certificate in Periodontology, VA Certificate Periodontology and Masters of Clinical Dentistry Degree. He practices at Red Rock Periodontics & Implantology in Las Vegas.

Digital Workflow for Surgical Implants

Course objectives:

  • Understand the truly successful criteria to replacing teeth with dental implants
  • Gain an appreciation for treating patients with macro esthetics in addition with micro esthetics
  • Develop a digital workflow algorithm that will enable the best esthetics and function for single unit and full arch cases
  • Understand the importance of soft tissue management in dental implant esthetics
  • Understand the data needed to develop a digitally derived prosthetic treatment plan
  • Develop a knowledge for intraoral scanning with the Trios scanner by 3Shape
  • Develop parameters and criteria to communicate with your local lab for restoration success

Hands On:

  • To be able to perform a hands on clinical scenario of a dental implant treatment utilizing digital technologies with the Trios scanner
  • Understand the rationale for the All on X treatment plan
  • How to diagnose and treatment plan a full arch case
  • Understand the parameters and guidelines for patients with failing teeth and edentulous arches
  • Understand the concept of the implant retained full arch prosthesis from the traditional perspective to the newly developed fully digital concept with Nsequence dental lab.
  • Develop a treatment planning rationale derived from a traditional full mouth rehab and implement this to a full arch implant supported prosthesis
  • Understand surgical rationale and protocol for full arch fully guided cases utilizing Biohorizons guided implant system
  • Surgical Strategies: Bone derived or prosthetic derived solutions
  • Understand The long term full arch provisional and the benefits it offers the patient clinically and financially
  • Gain an appreciation for the Nsequence workflow with a full case video
  • Understand the surgical workflow Nsequence guides from bone foundation guide to temporary prosthesis
  • Develop an understanding for full arch prosthetic options and materials
  • Develop a hygiene protocol to ensure prosthetic success and patient compliance
  • Address how and why an All on X treatment procedure can fail from implant to prosthesis
