New Technology Shatters Barriers

After almost a 3-year hiatus, I am honored to invite you to Augma’s 2nd International Symposium at the great Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida.

 

For this symposium the theme is “A New Generation for Bone Regeneration”, and we have gathered the top bone cement experts in the world for a 3-day event packed with lectures and hands-on workshops. The symposium will place focus on bone cement surgical procedures, including the most recent advancements in the area of peri-implantitis and vertical augmentation. 

 

COVID-19 emphasized the pivotal role of Augma Bone Cement Academy. We’ve created online content that can be consumed immediately by clinicians, in multiple shapes and forms. Nowadays clinicians can perform augmentation with Augma by selecting the proper learning tool for them: the online Introductory Course, Webinars, Expert Panels, Live Surgeries, Clinical Cases and E-book. This makes Augma Bone Cement Academy one of the leading platforms in online bone grafting education.

 

With over 10,000 registrations to ABCA events during the COVID-19 period, we are proud to see our educational activity has translated into a significant growth in our community, with clinicians everywhere taking advantage of the bone cement handling properties and surgical protocols.

 

The concept of bone cements is a true paradigm shift that provides us with entirely new possibilities. With bone cements, traditional GBR rules are no longer relevant. Now we have minimally invasive surgeries without tension free flaps or membranes. Primary closure is no longer mandatory, and graft exposure is not an issue due to the bacteriostatic nature of the graft cement. This turns the procedure into a much simpler, faster procedure with negligible complications.

 

I look forward to seeing you join us for a symposium full of educational activities, entertainment, and surprises.

Hands-On Workshop: Augmentation in the Aesthetic Zone

David Baranes
DMD, Israel
Amos Yahav
DMD, Israel

The aesthetic zone can be very challenging due to surgical and prosthetic requirements. We should be able to reconstruct the missing bone volume for optimal implant positioning, in addition we need to strive to obtain a perfect soft tissue appearance. The ultimate position of the papillae is crucial here, especially in cases with a high smile line.
In this hands-on workshop the participant will be trained how to use bone cement to confront different augmentation challenges in the aesthetic zone. Optimal results will become repeatable and predictable, assured in a very simple and safe way. Avoid the past known, post-operative, traditional complications, without any need of complex soft tissue manipulation or membrane coverage.

Bond Apatite, 10 Years of Experience, The Present and the Future

David Baranes
DMD, Israel
Amos Yahav
DMD, Israel

This lecture will discuss the long way we’ve come from the first use of bone cements and the start of the bone cements surgical protocols. This journey resulted in high predictability and a success rate of over 95%, with almost zero complications. The deep understanding of Biphasic Calcium Sulfate allowed us to stretch the limits of augmentation, thereby discovering a plethora of new cases, advancements, and upgrades. The future is bright with the developments of surgical protocols for peri-implantitis and vertical augmentation on the horizon.

The Surprising Abilities of Biphasic Calcium Sulfate in Lateral Augmentation & in Routine Surgeries

Stephane Berg
DDS, France

A very common problem in our daily cases is the lack of bone. Bone loss, narrow ridge, vestibular defect, loss of width... numerous words and few solutions! As Dentist or Implantologists, we are all deeply concerned by a vestibular defect or a narrow ridge. This bone problem can definitely change the global treatment planning. For years, we used to preserve the crest or to gain some volume through difficult and hazardous surgeries with membrane, screws, autogenous graft, PRF and long healing time. The results were aleatory and dubious. Now, thanks to biphasic calcium sulfate, we have the ability to maintain or to regenerate an impressive bone width. Today, it’s obvious to all that lateral augmentation using biphasic calcium sulfate is a new facet of Guided Bone Regeneration techniques affordable to all practitioners. With a simple and clear protocol, this type of surgery leads to a bio active bone and to an enlarged crest designed for implant placement. The second part of this lecture will be addressed to the general practitioner, and demonstrate the surprising abilities of biphasic calcium sulfate in the context of classical surgeries. The regenerative qualities of this material changed and simplified the surgical approach of many daily surgeries. The post-operative bone collapse following wisdom teeth extraction maybe now effectively compensate with this new material. Full ridge preservation and immediate loading can be achieved with this new material. Oro-antral communication closure can be obtained through a simple protocol. A new approach of surgeries for patients under treatment with bisphosphonates can be considered. Many uses that are likely to bring exceptional results in routine surgeries.

One Smile, One Surgery

José Camelo Ferreira
DDS, Oral Surgeon, Portugal

When a patient comes into your office what is the main thing he is urging for: Implants? Bone grafting? Teeth? No! He wants to raise his self-esteem, to look better and to project that in his everyday life. In fact, when the patient undergoes a simple or complex oral surgery, they do this expecting to increase their general well being and not only their oral health. Nowadays, it's an undeniable truth that our work, love life and all the types of social interaction are directly linked to our aesthetical appearance, and one of the most important cornerstones is the way our smile looks. For that reason, we have a professional obligation as clinicians to give back that long-awaited smile not only in the best clinical and technical way possible but also in the fastest way possible. Luckily, today we have a wide range of technical options and materials that allow us to go in the right direction from day one. The purpose of this lecture will be to show a set of clinical cases and therapeutic options in different clinical situations, in which all have as common point the placement of immediate implants, immediate bone grafting and immediate loading, always trying to restore the patient's well-being in only one surgery with the shorter surgical time possible.

Cysts, Tumors & Beyond

Damian Dudek
DMD, PhD, Poland

The lecture presents several dozen cases of surgical treatment of small and large odontogenic cysts (one and two steps procedure), benign tumors of the jaws and alveolar ridge reconstruction. In this endodontic microsurgery treatment techniques were used as well as augmentation of all bone defects with Bond Apatite graft. Up to 3 years in the radiological and clinical follow-up good stability of the graft, normal remodeling and formation of the new bone tissue. Moreover, stability of resected teeth and soft tissue were observed. Each cyst and tumor was histopathologically examined.

Hands-On Workshop: Sutures: Suturing, The Key to Success

Stephane Berg
DDS, France

“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” Seneca

Suturing is the last and final step of the surgical protocol. It requires concentration and tension. Nevertheless, sutures will condition the success of your intervention, protecting the graft material and the wound. Sutures will determine the healing of the gingiva, which will allow a long-term result. Using new materials (Biphasic Calcium Sulfate, collagen sponge, wound dressing) and new protocols (socket grafting, lateral augmentation, apicoectomy, ridge preservation) requires the implementation of new suturing techniques. Lack of attached gingiva is a very common issue after such surgical protocols. A simple flap with efficient sutures may solve this problem.

Learning objectives:
• Train yourself to realize and choose the correct stitching technique.
• Master suturing procedures and techniques.
• Protect the graft material.
• Stitch the wound dressing.
• Reposition and maintain the gingiva.
• Create new attached gingiva after healing and implant placement.

For each technique, a demonstration will be shown and explained on a tv screen (tv, video) by the expert. Participants work in pairs, while an expert walks around explaining the tricks. Simple cross stitches, continuous stitches, collagen sponge and Ora aid, and attached gingiva.
