The digital/analogical diagnosis in the maxillary sinus surgery

Three-dimensional diagnostic assessments have a decisive value in presurgical treatment planning, especially in situations in which the alveolar process has pronounced resorption, and therefore insufficient bone volume for placing endosseous implants. Follow a CBCT evaluation, it seems appropriate to underline the need for each candidate of a sinus lift operation to first undergo a careful clinical history investigation. If necessary, suitable specialist collaboration (otorhinolaryngologist) must be requested. It can be concluded that, with current knowledge. 1. Anatomy and TC/CBCT evaluation: What the clinician sees in reality vs what he can see in a TC/CBCT evaluation. 2. Pre-surgical diagnosis: - Criteria for patient evaluation - Criteria for site-specific evaluation - Sinus physiology - Contraindications from the otorhinolaryngological point of view

The scientific evidence in maxillary sinus elevation

In this introductory webinar, both the principles of evidence-based practice and the evidence about sinus lift procedures will be presented. Be prepared to some surprises, since some of the predominant current widespread clinical beliefs may not be supported by the available scientific evidence.

Fresh Extraction Socket Management: what the treatment options are?

Alveolar bone crest undergoes dimensional ridge changes after tooth extraction, these changes cannot be completely counteracted, even though proper management could allow the achievement of the best possible outcome for the patient. The ridge preservation technique is known to be effective in the reduction of alveolar bone resorption after tooth extraction.

Piezosurgery treatment of impacted teeth

The avulsion of the included or semi-included dental elements is one of the most frequently used clinical procedures performed by the oral surgeon. This practice can be relatively simple or extremely arduous about many variables related to the element that has to be extracted such as the localization, anatomy of the dental crown and roots, depth, and type of inclusion. If some dental avulsion can be considered routine dental surgery, the extraction of Dental elements included requires considerable technical preparation, accurate knowledge of all noble anatomical structures, and mature surgical experience. It is essential to perform a correct treatment planning that allows, on the one hand, to minimize the risk of post complications surgical (pain, edema, trismus, alveolitis ...) and, on the other, to be able to manage those complications accurately, always with the lowest biological cost for the patient. In the latest years, Oral surgery has strongly suffered from the technological innovations introduced in this field. In particular, the use of ultrasound applied to surgery has changed some of the most frequent clinical procedures, such as the extraction of third parties molars included, thus spreading an innovative concept in all dentistry: piezoelectric surgery or piezosurgery. Unlike implantology, it is a branch now widespread among dentists, extractive surgery still represents a "taboo" for many colleagues, who while practicing surgery daily implant, prefer to leave the avulsions often to maxillofacial surgeons or oral surgeons, considering it an intervention of greater complexity and often a source of anxiety and stress for the operator. So taking care of about 10 years of simple and complex extractive surgery I needed to elaborate a COURSE in which they have described simply and linearly the surgical techniques for the avulsion of the dental elements included, to provide a repeatable and predictable approach and method to reduce their invasiveness and traumatic procedures.

Covid19 and dentistry: strategies to contain the infection

Many of us are currently only administering emergency dental treatment and we really do not know when we will be able to return our regular professional "routine". Under the circumstances, it is natural for the members of the dental community to experience fear and anxiety. From a detailed analysis of the problem and several critical issues, related to the dental office and therapy, initiatives to control the Sars-Cov-2 have come to light. There are several key points to be discussed and that deserves careful thinking. The author, brakes down the problem into its multiple aspects, having researched the available scientific evidence and, where missing, having applied a precaution principle to define a general strategy for the dental team.

Implant rehabilitation of posterior maxilla: a decision tree

Clinical choice and decision making for minimally invasive implant rehabilitation of posterior maxilla. The purpose of this webinar is to describe various techniques available for the rehabilitation of atrophic maxilla with dental implants, suggesting a decision tree to choose the most predictable and less invasive treatment option in individual cases. Among the techniques proposed to overcome anatomical limitations, mention will be made on the following: short implants, sinus floor elevation with lateral approach and sinus floor elevation with transcrestal approach.

Gnathology 3.0 Aesthetic, Function and Long-Term Stability

The plan for the treatment of complex dysfunctional and non-dysfunctional cases requires an interdisciplinary approach that involves the most common branches of dentistry and an orthodontic, prosthetic approach respecting a functional-occlusal concept according to the philosophy of Professor Slavicek and Professor Sato. This type of approach today is essential because of the growing number of cases with severe dental destructions (worn dentition). The cephalometric tracing allows the variation of the vertical dimension and the occlusal plane individually. The possibility to change the vertical dimension predictably decreases the invasivity of the treatment by avoiding or reducing surgery, endodontics, and dental preparations. At the same time, the new vertical dimension gives sufficient space between the two arches that guarantees mechanical resistance to reconstruction materials. The pre-therapy with an occlusal splint or with diagnostic temporary allows the Algic symptomatology to be resolved and to test the therapeutic position. The subsequent orthodontic therapy using Sato's MEAW philosophy allows for the spaces of the missing teeth to be reopened, the vertical dimension to be increased, the inclination of the occlusal plane to be corrected and the mandible to be repositioned three-dimensionally. Implant therapy will allow you to have the back support, the control of the vertical dimension, and to guide the mandible in a sagittal and traversal reposition (3D). This type of approach is shown important for the long-term stability of complex rehabilitations.

Management of Complications Associated with Elevation of the Maxillary Sinus

When reduced dimension implants are not indicated in the atrophic posterior maxilla, because of the relevant reduction of residual alveolar crest volumes following atrophy and/or expansion of the maxillary sinus, sinus floor elevation with a crest or lateral approach has become a quite frequent surgical procedure in implant dentistry. These surgical procedures, although reliable, may expose also experienced surgeons to complications such as: 1) sinus membrane tears 2) penetration/migration of implants into their maxillary sinus 3) post-operative maxillary sinusitis.
