Contemporary mucogingival surgery for root surface coverage

Surgical techniques for managing root coverage have progressed rapidly in the last decade. This presentation will showcase the clinical procedures involved in surgery for localised gingival recession. The indications, techniques and instruments will be discussed in detail together with high quality video in 3D.

Aims and Objectives

1) To look at a tunnel procedure for root surface coverage

2) Use of tunnelling instruments

3) Demonstration of connective tissue harvesting from the palate

4) Use of acellular dermal matrix allograft as an alternative to connective tissue

5) Consideration of suturing techniques

Contemporary approach to endodontic microsurgery

Aim  - The aim of the lecture is discuss the contemporary approach to endodontic microsurgery, by illustration of a 3D case study.

Objectives  - Objectives for the lecture:

1.     To consider the concept of endodontic disease as the foundation of the traditional ‘apicectomy’.

2.     To discuss modern microsurgical techniques in flap management.

3.     To update on the use of ultrasonics and bioceramic materials for retrograde canal preparation and sealing.

4.     To examine the role of microsurgery in endodontic practice and outcomes of this treatment modality.

Learning Outcomes  - By the end of this lecture you will be able to:

1.     Understand the disease process associated with endodontic treatment failure.

2.     Understand the correct surgical management of endodontically-afflicted supporting tissues.

3.     Consider appropriate indications for endodontic microsurgery as a viable alternative to extraction.

Beyond the comfort zone - Guided Bone Regeneration in complex bone defects

Regenerating deficient bone around dental implants with 3-walled bone defects using the guided bone regeneration (GBR) principle is now an established procedure with increasingly amassing evidence supporting its predictability.  

Larger defects with less than 3-walls and particularly extended edentulous sites are traditionally managed with two-stage augmentation procedures, which inevitably increases the likelihood of complications, treatment time, costs and, above all, patient morbidity.

The aims of this presentation are to discuss application of GBR in extensive bone defects, supported by clinical case examples and post-augmentation CBCT results.

Surgical technique/s to manage dehiscence and fenestration type of defects in maxillary aesthetic zone will be demonstrated in a 3-d movie.
