It is a great privilege to introduce the 2021 BSP conference focusing on hard and soft tissue regeneration. A parallel session addressing the clinical challenges of peri-implant diseases by a panel of experts is also organised for Friday. With the additional sponsored hands on workshops and lectures on both topics that will take place on each day of the congress, I am certain that this will be an excellent event for specialists, general practitioners and hygienists/therapists.

  • Zirconia implants: what are my benefits
    Zirconia implants: what are my benefits
    Straumann - Diamond Sponsored Workshop

    Zirconia as a material for implants has been available in oral implantology for more than 20 years. However, Zirconia implants are considered to be a minority within the dental implants market. Using Zirconia implants in dentistry still awakes emotions either on the patient’s or on the dentist’s side.

    The aim of the presentation is to scientifically identify the possible benefits or drawbacks of Zirconia implants on the level of the bone, on the level of the soft tissue and on the level of the prosthetic reconstruction.

  • Will short dental implant be the standard implant in the clinical practise?
    Will short dental implant be the standard implant in the clinical practise?
    BTI Biotechnology Institute - Gold Sponsored Lecture

    The success of implant therapy is an integrative and cumulative as well as multifactorial process. This process is put in challenge when short dental implants are selected. A careful dissection of the implant characteristics, the biology of bone and gingival tissue as well as the biomechanics is needed to establish certain clinical guidelines when short dental implants are used.

    To discuss the relevance of short dental implants in the rehabilitation of partially/completely edentulous patients with implant-supported prosthesis.

    1. To understand the predictability of short dental implants: the harmonized integration of tissue, implant and prosthesis. 

    2. To show the implant selection as the key to success: the pillars for the bridge. 

    3. To discuss the current clinical protocol and guidelines for the use short implants in implant dentistry.

    1. To acquire clinical guidelines for the use of short implants: integration of the biomechanics in the treatment planning.

    2. To develop a decision making process on the loading protocol (immediate Vs delayed) and the selection of the prosthesis. 

    3. To have outlined the concepts that best fit with a predictable treatment.

    Reduced bone volume - accept or augment? Part 1. Accept - technological solutions to reduced bone volume and their implications
    Straumann - Diamond Sponsored Lecture Part 1.

    Many patients (and perhaps especially patients who have lost teeth due to periodontal disease) present with marked resorption of the alveolar ridge and reduced available bone volume for implant placement, be this localised to a small region or generalised resorption of the entire arch.

    Many potential solutions are available, but where should the line be drawn between biology and technology when selecting appropriate treatment modalities for patients?

    This lecture will consider not only the choices available to us, but also the potential impact, both short and long term, of various hard tissue augmentation procedures compared to technological solutions for dealing with implant-supported rehabilitation in situations of reduced bone volume.

    At the end of this presentation delegates will:

    1. Understand the everyday clinical practicalities in different treatment approaches to resorbed alveolar ridges

    PRF for bone regeneration

    Leucocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF), a second generation platelet concentrate and completely different from PRP, is an autologous blood derived product, which can be obtained, quickly and at low cost.  L-PRF is produced from peripheral blood, which is immediately centrifuged without any anticoagulant.  L-PRF is rich in fibrin, platelets (± 90% of initial blood) and leucocytes (± 70% of initial blood), an can be transformed into strong membranes circa 1 mm in thickness.  L-PRF membranes releases large amounts of growth factors for a long period (up to 7 days) and they possess an antibacterial capacity.

    As such L-PRF membranes offer “significant” and “clinically relevant” advantages in several indications including: healing of non-responding wounds, ridge preservation, sinus augmentation, horizontal/vertical bone augmentation and osseointegration.

    The aim of this presentation is to provide basic information on the content of L-PRF and on its clinical benefits in dento-alveolar surgery.

    • To highlight how to prepare L-PRF
    • To demonstrate the uses of L-PRF in clinical practice
    • To explain how to ensure a beneficial outcome with L-PRF

    Scientific basis and clinical indications for PRGF

    The plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) is the net outcome of an extensive translational research that defined the preparation, composition and applicability of the PRGF. The PRGF is a versatile and multi-functional therapy that modulates tissue healing. PRGF is effective to manage post-operative complications (bleeding, hematoma, swelling, pain, dry socket, MRONJ), soft tissue closure, hard tissue regeneration and TMJ osteoarthritis.

    To discuss the relevance of PRGF as a regenerative tool to enhance tissue healing in the clinical practise.

    1. To discuss the role of different blood components on the properties of the PRGF. How PRGF has been defined? 

    2. To show the versatility of the formulations of PRGF. It is a ONE SINGLE PROTOCOL to produce different PRGF formulations. 

    3. To discuss the current clinical evidence on the efficacy of PRGF. Alveolar ridge preservation, lateral and vertical bone augmentation, TMJ osteoarthritis and  autoimmune disease (refractory-to-treatment erosive lichen planus).

  • Use of Xenografts for Soft Tissue Regeneration at Teeth and Dental Implants
    Use of Xenografts for Soft Tissue Regeneration at Teeth and Dental Implants

    Soft tissue regeneration at teeth and dental implants is still a challenge for the clinician. At natural teeth, various surgical techniques such as the coronally advanced flap (CAF) or the modified coronally advanced tunnel in conjunction with of autogenous soft tissue grafts have been shown to yield predictable clinical outcomes and long-term stability. Increasing evidence also indicates that at dental implants, the presence of an adequate width of attached mucosa (AM) may lead to better soft and hard tissue stability, lower plaque accumulation, less soft tissue recession and lower incidence of peri-implant mucositis. Therefore, a minimal width of a stable (e.g. non-mobile) peri-implant mucosa appears to be essential to ensure long-term peri-implant tissue health. However, autogenous tissue harvesting is often associated with increased patient morbidity, prolonged surgical time and the possibility of postoperative complications such as bleeding, numbness and sensibility changes in the donor area. Moreover, in many clinical situations, autogenous graft harvesting is limited by various anatomical factors such as thickness of the palatal mucosa, presence of palatal recessions and location of the palatal artery. 

    In order to overcome these limitations, during the last decade, a number of xenografts have been developed to replace or minimize the need for autogenous grafts. The present lecture will provide an overview on the available scientific and clinical evidence on the use of xenografts for soft tissue regeneration at teeth and dental implants.

    1. To provide the biologic rationale and treatment philosophy for the use of xenografts in soft tissue reconstructive surgery at teeth and dental implants.
    2. To teach when, how and what type of xenografts to use in various clinical scenarios

  • Emdogain: From Biologic Principles to Clinical Application
    Emdogain: From Biologic Principles to Clinical Application
    Straumann - Diamond Sponsored Lecture Friday

    The goal of regenerative periodontal therapy is the reconstitution of the lost periodontal structures (i.e. formation of new cementum, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone). Results from preclinical and clinical studies have pointed to the important role of an enamel matrix protein derivative (EMD) (Emdogain) in periodontal wound healing. Animal and human histological studies have provided evidence for the capacity of Emdogain to promote periodontal regeneration in intrabony defects, furcations and recession-type defects. Results from randomized controlled clinical studies have indicated that the application of Emdogain may significantly improve treatment outcomes and long-term stability. In complex, non-contained type defects, the combination of Emdogain and different types of bone grafting materials may additionally improve the clinical outcomes. 

    The lecture will review the existing evidence on the effects of EMD upon periodontal wound healing/regeneration and draw clinically relevant conclusions.

    1. To provide the biological background necessary to understand the rational for the use of EMD for periodontal regeneration.

    2. To present animal and human histological evidence of periodontal regeneration following EMD application. 

    3. To provide clinically relevant indications for the use of EMD.

    4. To present future avenues of research including the use of EMD.

  • Regeneration is first preservation with ultrasonic devices
    Regeneration is first preservation with ultrasonic devices
    Acteon - Platinum Sponsored Lecture

    We all are looking for a “magic” material to regenerate lost tissue. But first we should try to preserve tissue, not only by keeping teeth longer, but also when needed, to use a less traumatic way for extractions or bone surgery and to stimulate the body's regeneration capacity. Ultrasonic scalers and piezosurgery devices are easy to use and allow tissue preservation for better regeneration.

    • To explain how ultrasonic devices work and how to use them correctly in daily practice without damaging the roots
    • To present the differences between classic bone surgery techniques and piezosurgery.
    • To correctly use the ultrasonic scaler in periodontal treatment to preserve the root surface

  • Alveolar ridge preservation: Why? When? & How?
    Alveolar ridge preservation: Why? When? & How?

    The extensive resorption of the alveolar ridge following tooth extraction is a major problem for later prosthetic reconstruction. Various ridge preservation techniques based on the immediate filling of post-extraction socket with bone grafts or substitutes in combination or not with a barrier membrane and/ or sift tissue grafts have been suggested in order to maintain ridge dimensions and contour and to facilitate the placement of an implant that satisfies aesthetic and functional demands. However, some clinicians believe that such procedures are more of an “over-treatment” than a real solution since these techniques may not able to reverse the bundle bone resorption and delays the total treatment time. This presentation will discuss the current clinical & histologic evidence in order to provide a better understanding of the rationale and the clinical value of using ridge preservation techniques and it will present research work of our group on different materials and techniques for ridge preservation and extraction site soft tissue management.

    To present the current evidence on the clinical rational and indications for alveolar ridge preservation and discuss clinical and histologic outcomes following the utilization of different techniques and materials.

    1. To present and discuss the effectiveness of ARP based on systemic evaluation of the current evidence.
    2. To describe the most commonly used surgical techniques and materials in case presentations

    Short/narrow implants: New clinical perspectives

    The future trend in modern implant therapies is to reduce invasiveness and increase predictability of treatments. The use of short or narrow diameter implants can reduce the invasiveness of the treatment, the therapy costs and the stress level of the clinicians. The question remains whether short or narrow diameter implants reveal the same performance as implants of standard length and diameter. The presentation will provide you with interesting and clinically relevant information about the advantages and limitations of short and narrow diameter implants. You will learn in which indications these innovative implants can be used.

  • Emdogain: From Biologic Principles to Clinical Application
    Emdogain: From Biologic Principles to Clinical Application
    Straumann - Diamond Sponsored Lecture Friday

    The goal of regenerative periodontal therapy is the reconstitution of the lost periodontal structures (i.e. formation of new cementum, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone). Results from preclinical and clinical studies have pointed to the important role of an enamel matrix protein derivative (EMD) (Emdogain) in periodontal wound healing. Animal and human histological studies have provided evidence for the capacity of Emdogain to promote periodontal regeneration in intrabony defects, furcations and recession-type defects. Results from randomized controlled clinical studies have indicated that the application of Emdogain may significantly improve treatment outcomes and long-term stability. In complex, non-contained type defects, the combination of Emdogain and different types of bone grafting materials may additionally improve the clinical outcomes.

    Emdogain: From Biologic Principles to Clinical Application
    Straumann - Diamond Sponsored Lecture Friday

    The goal of regenerative periodontal therapy is the reconstitution of the lost periodontal structures (i.e. formation of new cementum, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone). Results from preclinical and clinical studies have pointed to the important role of an enamel matrix protein derivative (EMD) (Emdogain) in periodontal wound healing. Animal and human histological studies have provided evidence for the capacity of Emdogain to promote periodontal regeneration in intrabony defects, furcations and recession-type defects. Results from randomized controlled clinical studies have indicated that the application of Emdogain may significantly improve treatment outcomes and long-term stability. In complex, non-contained type defects, the combination of Emdogain and different types of bone grafting materials may additionally improve the clinical outcomes. 

    The lecture will review the existing evidence on the effects of EMD upon periodontal wound healing/regeneration and draw clinically relevant conclusions.

  • Regeneration is first preservation with ultrasonic devices
    Regeneration is first preservation with ultrasonic devices
    Acteon - Platinum Sponsored Lecture

    We all are looking for a “magic” material to regenerate lost tissue. But first we should try to preserve tissue, not only by keeping teeth longer, but also when needed, to use a less traumatic way for extractions or bone surgery and to stimulate the body's regeneration capacity. Ultrasonic scalers and piezosurgery devices are easy to use and allow tissue preservation for better regeneration.

    • To explain how ultrasonic devices work and how to use them correctly in daily practice without damaging the roots
    • To present the differences between classic bone surgery techniques and piezosurgery.
    • To correctly use the ultrasonic scaler in periodontal treatment to preserve the root surface 
    • To know how and when to use piezoelectric surgical tools to respect the bone and to improve healing for better regeneration
