Next-Generation Biomaterials for Bone and Periodontal Regeneration is organized by Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc and will be held from Aug 23 - 24, 2019 at Quintessence CE Center, Batavia, Illinois, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 hours of continuing education (CE) credit. Description: New and innovative biomaterials are being discovered or created in laboratories at an unprecedented rate, but many of them remain entirely foreign to practicing clinicians. This course presents an up-to-date summary of how to effectively utilize dental biomaterials for bone and periodontal regeneration and presents next-generation biomaterials that will surely assist clinicians involved in implant dentistry. The course begins with a review of the biologic background and applications of bone grafting materials utilized in dentistry. The principles of guided tissue and bone regeneration are covered in detail, including many recent advancements in barrier membrane technologies, the use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and various growth factors, and many next-generation materials that will optimize future bone and periodontal regeneration. The final section of the course is designed to help clinicians select appropriate biomaterials for each specific regenerative protocol. Much like one implant size and shape cannot be utilized for every indication in implant dentistry, one bone grafting material, barrier membrane, or growth factor cannot maximize regenerative outcomes in all clinical situations. This course teaches clinicians how to utilize biomaterials in an appropriate, predictable, and evidence-based manner. Objectives: • Introduce the available options for bone grafts and their uses. • Learn when to utilize each of the four types of bone grafting materials appropriately. • Understand the objective use of barrier membranes and PRF. • Discuss why growth factors are the future of bone and periodontal regeneration. • Define each class of growth factors and their uses.
Periodontal and Peri-Implant Plastic Microsurgery - Minimally-Invasive Technique with Maximum Precision
Sep 13 - 14, 2019 | CE Credits 12.00 | USD $1695 | Batavia, Illinois
Periodontal and Peri-Implant Plastic Microsurgery - Minimally-Invasive Technique with Maximum Precision is organized by Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc and will be held from Sep 13 - 14, 2019 at Quintessence CE Center, Batavia, Illinois, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 hours of continuing education CE credit. Description: The current challenge of Periodontics is to meet the patients' high esthetic demand in the search for correction of periodontal and peri-implant soft tissue defects. Periodontal microsurgery is a minimally invasive procedure performed with micro instruments and magnification systems (loupe/operative microscope). The accuracy of the technique and the primary wound closure pattern results in faster healing, absence of scars and highly esthetic results. They can be used to correct gingival or peri-implant recessions in single or multiple, shallow or deep defects. Objectives: • Discuss the importance and advantages of periodontal and peri-implant plastic microsurgery • Familiarization with micro instruments and the magnification systems, loupe and operative microscope for the microsurgical techniques • Present and practice periodontal microsurgical step-by-step techniques for root coverage in single or multiple, shallow or deep defects. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
New Trends in Facial Esthetics with Hyaluronic Acid, Botulinum Toxin, PDO Threads, and Smart Blood Derivatives
Oct 04 - 05, 2019 | CE Credits 13.50 | USD $1795 | Batavia, Illinois
New Trends in Facial Esthetics with Hyaluronic Acid, Botulinum Toxin, PDO Threads, and Smart Blood Derivatives is organized by Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc and will be held from Oct 04 - 05, 2019 at Quintessence CE Center, Batavia, Illinois, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 13.5 hours of continuing education CE credit. Description: "Mesotherapy" is a non-surgical, minimally invasive method of blood derivatives that consists of multiple intradermal or subcutaneous injections, stimulating the body's natural healing cascade, yielding visible results within a short period of time. Using blood derivatives in liquid form enhances healing after facial procedures, as well as rejuvenates the face without tissue manipulation. i-PRF utilizes activated platelets, inflammatory cells and stem cells found in our blood for regeneration of the skin and ultimately alleviate wrinkles. The release of cytokines associated with the niche of mesenchymal stem activate as well the regenerative process and angiogenesis for better oxygenation of the skin, in order to convert the stem cells in mature cells. This procedure begins the production of collagen and elastin fibers, which is helped by the fibrin matrix produced naturally from the soluble fibrinogen. Moreover, the plasma contains proteins, minerals, vitamins and other nutritional substances, which leads to skin rejuvenation. Objectives: • The use of i–PRF with A–PRF liquid as an innovative method for skin rejuvenation that can be used in everyday practice, with a maximum cost–benefit ratio for both the physician and the patient. • Introduce the Cleopatra Technique as a totally natural procedure using the patient's own blood in order to rejuvenate the skin. • Learn how health care professionals have successfully incorporated growth factors into their practices, often in conjunction with other modalities such as hyaluronic acid, botox injections, polydioxanone (PDO) threads, and laser treatments. • Practice this technique using Joseph Choukroun's PRF liquid.
Zero Bone Loss Concepts: An Evidence-Based Clinical Guide for the Development and Maintenance of Bone Stability Around Implants
Oct 25 - 26, 2019 | CE Credits 13.00 | USD $1250 | Batavia, Illinois
Zero Bone Loss Concepts: An Evidence-Based Clinical Guide for the Development and Maintenance of Bone Stability Around Implants is organized by Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc and will be held from Oct 25 - 26, 2019 at Quintessence CE Center, Batavia, Illinois, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 13 hours of CE credit. Description: Mucosal tissue thickness can have a significant impact on crestal bone stability, so it is suggested that thin tissues be thickened during implant placement in order to reduce bone resorption. The solutions put forward depend on the crestal bone height and include (1) bone reduction to passively augment soft tissue proportion, (2) subcrestal placement to achieve greater soft tissue contact, or (3) a “tent” technique that involves covering the abutment with the flap to facilitate soft tissue growth. If bone height is not sufficient, vertical augmentation of the soft tissue is recommended. Further, it is important to preserve bone levels after prosthetic treatment. Recent research has proven that the deeper the position of the margin, the greater the amount of residual cement left undetected. To avoid this, the implant restoration (with an occlusal opening) is cemented onto a titanium base in the laboratory, and the restoration is attached to the implant using an abutment screw. Objectives: • Describe how to diagnose and manage thin vertical tissues, including using vertical augmentation and the "tent" technique • Discuss material selection for vertical augmentation and prosthetic restoration • Discuss the problems residual cement can cause and describe methods for safe cementation of implant restorations

Soft Tissues and Pink Esthetics in Implant Dentistry is organized by Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc and will be held from Oct 31 - Nov 01, 2019 at Quintessence CE Center, Batavia, Illinois, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 hours of continuing education CE credit. Description: Why is soft tissue the key point when dealing with esthetics in implant dentistry? What is their biological role? The concept of soft-tissue integration is the new challenge in implant dentistry. The knowledge about the dynamics of healing in post-extraction sites recommends avoiding a staged approach with spontaneous healing after tooth extraction. To achieve optimal results clinicians should consider preserving the anatomy of the ridge and the soft tissue contour. During this 2-day workshop different surgical and prosthetic approaches will be discussed for single and multiple tooth rehabilitations. From immediate implant placement to ridge preservation, and horizontal and vertical bone regeneration to soft tissues augmentation. Different sites, different protocols, one goal: predictability. Objectives: • Understand the importance of a proper soft-tissue integration to maintain long-term health and esthetics • Define a clinical decisional tree for the management of the extraction site: when immediate, when Ridge Preservation, when Ridge Augmentation, when delayed with GBR • Learn the surgical techniques to preserve the original soft tissue contour or to augment the lost peri-implant tissues Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
