Course Descriptions

Oshetski Implant Seminars: 2019 TBD

Surgical Series: Bone Grafting for the Implant Dentist (w/ Live Patient Demo)

      • Description: The ability to maintain or restorative alveolar dimensions is a necessary skill for the implant surgeon as the success of implant tooth restorations is predicated on the dimensions, quality and quantity of the boney foundation. This series is designed for surgical doctors with surgical implant placement experience who wish to further develop their proficiency with augmentation techniques. Participants will benefit from the live surgical demonstration of techniques and preceding scientific rational and discussion of evidence-based treatment. Following completion of this series clinicians can qualify for hands-on training supervision with Dr. Oshetski and staff. Class limited to 12 participants.

Session I: Socket, GBR and Block Grafting

    • Objectives:
      • Learn restorative-driven implant position and corresponding bone volume classifications with the aid of CBCT technology
      • Learn an algorithm for for predictable augmentation technique for horizontal osseous defects.
      • Understand bone metabolism, bone graft materials and growth factors necessary for successful regeneration
      • Learn bone grafting principles, flap management, closure and post-operative considerations.
      • Understand advantage of addition of autogenous bone and platelet blood products (L-PRF, L-PRP) to bone grafting procedures
      • Learn ridge preservation post dental extraction, membrane-guided bone regeneration, and block grafting principles.

Session II: Sinus Augmentation Techniques in Implant Dentistry:

    • Objectives:
      • Understand sinus anatomy, pathology and ideal patient selection for sinus augmentation procedures.
      • Learn sinus classification and appropriate grafting/augmentation procedures.
      • Learn subantral ( through the osteotomy) augmentation procedures including osteotome and vertical osseo-condensation techniques.
      • Observe lateral-wall access (caldwell-luc) sinus augmentation procedure.
      • Understand advantage of addition of autogenous bone and platelet blood products (L-PRF, L-PRP) to bone grafting procedures.
      • Discuss common sinus graft complications and appropriate avoidance and management techniques
      • Learn digital workflow and the incorporation of STL and CBCT data into 3d dynamic navigated / guided subantral augmentation.

Complications in Dental Implantology Series (3 Part Series)

Session I: Prosthetic Complications (6CEU)

    • Overview:
      • As clinicians we appreciate the modality of dental implants and the positive effects these rehabilitations have on our patients. However complications are also on the rise as the specialty of implant dentistry has both a prosthetic and surgical component. This complexity often makes it difficult for identifying the etiology of the complication and a treatment solution. Treatment of complications and ultimately avoidance will serve the modality of implant dentistry and ultimately our patients. This course, one of three in a series focuses on restorative and delayed biological complications
    • Objectives:
      • Discuss key differences in mechanical and biological differences in a dental implant and natural tooth
      • Discuss key dental implant positions in single and full-arch rehabilitation scenarios
      • Discuss common errors in full-arch tooth position, intra-arch position and functional complications
      • Discuss digital workflow and and its influence on restorative-driven implantology
      • Discuss causes and avoidance of anterior esthetic implant failures
      • Discuss full-arch fixed prosthetics and keys to complication avoidance
      • Discuss common complications with full-arch removable implant prosthetics and avoidance.
      • Discuss computerized occlusal analysis role in complication avoidance
      • Discuss ideal implant-protected occlusal schemes in fixed and removable restorations.
      • Discuss the etiology and treatment options of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis
      • Discuss criteria for healthy implant abutment finish line, emergence and a customization
      • Discuss abutment, screw retained and cement-related complications and their treatment
      • Discuss patient specific parameters, prosthetic materials, characteristics and applications

Session II: Pharmacology and Oral Medicine (6CEU)

    • Overview:
      • With today’s aging population and increased need for implant teeth replacement we can encounter adverse outcomes to surgery and implant treatment. Medications can effect the safety of surgical procedures and healing outcome. Systemic health concerns and pharmacologic co-morbidites should alter a clinicians approach to optimize healing, avoid failed treatment and emergency scenarios. Treatment of the medically-complex patient and proper treatment algorithms will be discussed. This course is second in a three lecture series on implant dentistry complications and is highly recommended for clinicians who plan to take surgical complications course.
    • Objectives:
        • Discuss most commonly prescribed medications and their influence on dental implant surgery and osseointegration
        • Discuss systemic diseases that influence bone metabolism, osseointegration and implant treatment success
        • Discuss antihypertensive and anticoagulation treatment and appropriate surgical treatment modifications
        • Discuss oral and intravenous bisphosphonate therapy and its impact on dental implant treatment protocols
        • Discuss post-operative pain medications, NSAIDS effect on bone metabolism and necessary modifications
        • Discuss prophylactic antibiotics and their indication for use in implant surgery
        • Discuss L-PRF, L-PRP and its beneficial effect on implant dentistry and medically-complex patients

Session III: Surgical Complications (6CEU)

    • Overview:
      • As clinicians we appreciate the modality of dental implants and the positive effects these rehabilitations have on our patients. However complications are also on the rise as the specialty of implant dentistry has both a prosthetic and surgical component. This complexity often makes it difficult for identifying the etiology of the complication and a treatment solution. Treatment of complications and ultimately avoidance will serve the modality of implant dentistry and ultimately our patients. This course is the final in a series of three focusing on intra-operative surgical and post surgical complications and their corresponding treatment and avoidance.
    • Objectives:
        • Common surgical complications related to implant placement position, removal and modification
        • Discuss common concerns and complications with surgical stents for implant placement
        • Discuss vascular anatomy, intra-operative hemorrhage, appropriate avoidance and emergency treatment
        • Nerve injury etiology, classification and treatment
        • Discuss post surgical incision line opening, one stage implant surgery and soft tissue concerns.
        • Discuss post surgical implant failure causes, avoidance and treatment options
        • Discuss peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis identification and treatment options.
        • Oral-antral communications, displaced implants
        • Sinus pathology and post surgical rhinosinusitis infection and treatment
