Short implants vs augmentation procedures, and an investigation of long implants without augmentation

After a brief introduction on the scientific methods in clinical dentistry, this presentation will focus on how to rehabilitate with dental implants atrophic jaws by comparing, in randomised controlled trials, two alternative options: the use of short implants versus the use of longer implants enabled by bone augmentation procedures. Also trials on the use of short implants versus longer ones in the presence of adequate native bone will be discussed, as well as some hints on zygomatic implants.

Optimising the Surgical Part 1: Driven by the Restorative

Beginning with an overview of occlusion, achieving passivity and the use of intermediary abutments placed at time of surgery. Surgical innovations that make screw-retained prosthetics even more achievable will then be presented. A notable finding in recent literature is the abundance of mid-facial soft-tissue that can be achieved from the bucco-palatal angulation of implants. This will be further explored in the hands-on workshop "Optimising Anterior Aesthetics when Placing Implants".

Innovations in Sedation for Oral Surgery

The initial findings of a trial using high flow nasal oxygen systems to avoid oxygen desaturation will also be presented.
