Common sense versus COVID-19 sense: Simple and effective precautions to protect patients, personnel and surroundings from infections

Dr. Mikael Zimmerman , Dr. Petteri Sjögren DDS, PhD

We are constantly surrounded by a plenitude of potentially infectious microorganisms. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic cast a renewed light on the importance of infection control routines, both in daily life and in the medical field. Infection control and prevention commonly observed in the dental practice are safe and effective, but hygiene routines need to be known, understood and strictly observed by the whole dental office team.

Removable dentures, a viable treatment option for edentulous patients

Dr. Martin Schimmel

The use of osseointegrated implants for the stabilization of mandibular complete dentures is one of the great achievements in modern dentistry. It is well documented in the literature that the stabilization of lower dentures with two implants reduces peri-implant bone atrophy, increases chewing efficiency, reduces masseter muscle atrophy, and improves the patient’s oral health related quality of life significantly. Diagnostic prerequisites for backward planning as well as the use of two-piece as well as small diameter one-piece implants will be considered. In an approach that considers the general functional capacity and possible functional decline of the elderly edentulous patient a staged approach for the choice overdentures attachments will be discussed.

Implant surface, a key factor for-long term implant performance

Prof. em. Dr. Daniel Buser DDS

The implant surface is a key factor for the long-terem stability of dental implants. Today, hybrid design implants are clearly prefered by our team, such as Tissue Level Implants. They have a hydrophilic, micro-rough implant surface for the endosseous portion of the jaw to optimize implant anchorage. The best documented micro-rough implant surface is SLActive. In the neck area, a machined, smooth implant surface is present in the transrestal area to promote a healthy peri-implant mucosa with long-term stability

Another pandemic: Diabetes! Why should the dental team bother?

Corinna Bruckmann MD, MSc

Periodontal disease and diabetes share some life-style risk factors, like smoking, and there is a two-way relationship: patients with uncontrolled diabetes have a 3-fold higher risk to develop advanced periodontitis, while untreated periodontitis further dysregulates glycemic balance.

Indication-based abutment selection

Dr. Julia-Gabriela Wittneben

The possibilities and expectations of achieving a successful functional and esthetic outcome have been raised with the evolution of implant designs, prosthetic components and dental materials. Even after a successful surgical approach, the prosthodontic finalization remains challenging. The overall focus of this webinar will remain on the selection of implant abutments more specifically, focusing on different indications, materials and abutment types. Especially the selection of implant abutments in the esthetic zone seems still challenging and has an influence on the final esthetic result. This will be highlighted also in respect to the evidence concerning retention type (screw versus cement). All aspects of the lecture will be presented with reference to contemporary literature and clinical studies. The objective of this lecture is therefore to provide a summary of the clinical evidence which is of relevance to the practitioners perspective of implant prosthetic treatment

Inflammation and type 2 diabetes: pathogenesis and current treatment protocols

Prof. Marc Y. Donath MD

In patients with type 2 diabetes an inflammatory process is present. This inflammation is due to a pathological activation of the innate immune system, caused by metabolic stress and is partly governed by IL-1 signaling. We identified the role of IL-1β and insulin in the regulation of metabolism and immunity in response to food intake. Yet, as it becomes chronic, activation of auto-inflammatory processes may then become deleterious.

A new SPLIT CREST technique

Prof. Tomaso Vercellotti

A reduced crestal bone volume is frequently encountered in implantology, with horizontal bone defects being certainly the most common occurrence. The introduction of PiezoImplants has considerably simplified the implant therapy of thin crestal bone, because the rectangular section of the new implants’ wedge shape is a better fit for the crestal anatomy.

Computer-controlled local anaesthesia & paediatric patients: how to make your injections safe and effective

Dr. Aneta Olszewska DDS, PhD

Local anaesthesia can often be unbearable for young patients and stressful for a dentist. A computer-controlled local anaesthesia system allows the delivery speed and pressure to be adjusted to the clinical situation, developmental, anatomical, and physiological tissue differences observed in children. Effective anaesthesia is achieved with a lower amount of analgesic reducing the risk of toxic or allergic reactions and minimizing discomfort and sensation of numbness after the treatment. It helps prevent unwanted self- injuries to the lips, cheeks, and tongue.

Ageing and periodontal disease: look out before you leap

Dr. Eric Thevissen

Despite all efforts of dental professionals the prevalence and incidence of total edentulism is still increasing on a global scale. Second observation from a recent meta review in JDR (2020) was that total tooth loss is decreasing in low-income countries while, on the other hand, it is increasing in upper- or middle-income countries. Is periodontal disease the main responsible for this evolution?

The (Medication) Matrix! Essential Pharmacology for Treating Medically Complex Geriatric Dental Patient

Thomas Viola RPh, C.C.P

Dental professionals must frequently draw upon their knowledge of pharmacology for optimal care of today’s medically complex geriatric dental patients. However, armed with relatively brief exposure to such a vast subject during formal education and faced with ever-changing medication therapy guidelines, many dental professionals simply cannot keep up with the latest trends in disease state management.
