-Assessment and Treatment Planning to Identify the Regenerative Patient-

Presented by: Shreeti Ruparelia, RDH, BS, MBA

       Location: Hilton Garden Inn, Levis Commons, Perrysburg, Ohio

          CEU: 3 lecture hours 

Course Description

When a patient loses hard and soft tissue, the assumption was that it was gone forever. We now know once it’s gone it’s not gone forever. The key is early detection. Today’s biomaterials have made possible the regeration of hard and soft tissue. When identified early, reversing recession, intra bony defects and mandibular class 2 furcation defects are possible and predictable. Regeneration with the use of amelogenin proteins in conjunction with surgery, has been documented over 20 years, and shows long term predictable treatment outcomes. The interactive treatment planning session will review defect classification of recession, intra bony and furcation defects. Identification of the regenerative patient starts with an accurate assessment. Clinical cases will be presented and discussed to apply assessment criteria in the decision making process of an accurate treatment plan. Emphasis will be placed on developing a customized decision tree to align clinical philosophy with current evidence and research.

Course Objectives:

  • Identification of Miller classification of recession defects
    Identification of intra bony and furcation defects classification
    Understand the process of biomimetics as it relates to periodontal regeneration
    Understand the importance of tooth position, occlusion and tissue biotype in regeneration
    Implement evidence based decision tree to promote early detection of defects
    Understand biologic basis for socket regeneration

-Techniques for Instrumentation and
Maintenance of the Full Arch Hybrid Case-

Presented by: Janis Spiliadis, RDH

       Location: Hilton Garden Inn, Levis Commons, Perrysburg, Ohio

          CEU: 3 lecture hours

Course Description

Patients demand a healthy smile to restore confidence and function. Contrary to what we
may think patients do not want implants, they want teeth. The hybrid restoration solution has emerged as an aesthetic leader in full arch replacement. As the number of cases increases, it is essential to communicate ideal dental care following implant placement. This course emphasizes the hygienists’ role in pre-, intra- and post-treatment to minimize infection and potential complications. Evidence based decision making including safety and efficacy of instruments used in maintenance will be discussed. This presentation will review current literature on instrumentation and maintenance of the hybrid restoration. Hands-on instrumentation will be a highlight of this course


Course Objectives:

  • Differentiate health and disease in the hybrid patient
    Identify potential complications and risks in pre- and post-operative care
    Understand biocompatibility of materials related to implant maintenance
    Understand the current literature on proper instrumentation and maintenance
    Identify effective instrumentation protocols for managing the full arch case
    Establish customized home care regimens patients will use and find effective
