International Symposium on Temple University

Seminar 52 Date & Time: 3 March 2017, 9:30 – 11:00
Topic: Clinical treatment with endodontic regeneration – Research progress in pulpal periapical diseases
Conference Room: No.4 of the Westin Hotel
Speaker:  Dr. Maobin Yang, Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry

Seminar Abstract
In the last decade, regenerative endodontic procedures have emerged as an alternative to treat necrotic permanent teeth that have immature root formation with an open apex. From the clinical aspect, the primary goal of regenerative endodontic treatment is to heal apical periodontitis, promote continued formation of the root and apical closure. From the tissue engineering aspect, the ultimate goal of regenerative endodontics is to regenerate a functional pulp-dentin complex, which needs the application of the principles of regenerative medicine: utilizing stem cells, three-dimensional scaffolds and growth factors in combination to regenerate new tissues. This lecture will provide the current knowledge, from the tissue engineering aspect, of the biological basis, treatment protocol and treatment outcomes of the regenerative endodontics procedure. The limitations and challenges of the current regenerative endodontic procedure will be discussed from the tissue engineering aspect, and the future strategies to overcome these challenges will be proposed.

Seminar Abstract
Cone-beam CT (CBCT) has become an important imaging modality in oral and maxillofacial diagnosis. In modern dental practice, CBCT has been widely used in pre-osseous assessment and guided-surgery for dental implants, treatment planning for endodontic and orthodontic patients, third molar extractions, and temporo-mandibular joint assessment, nasal pharyngeal space evaluations, orthognathic surgery and 4D imaging. Since most CBCT machines are purchased and used by general dentists and non-radiology dental specialists, lack of image interpretation and misdiagnosis are common. Therefore, national guidelines for CBCT applications are quite important inprotection of our patients and covering the legal liability for our dental practitioners. This lecture will update CBCT applications in modern dental practice and American Position Guidelines on dental implants, endodontics, orthodontics, and teleradiology.

Annual Meeting of Standing Committee of the Chinese Society for Prosthodontics

Seminar 56 Date & Time: 3 March 2017, 09:00 – 10:30
Topic: Application of occlusion concept on hinge axis for the treatment of complex occlusal reconstruction
Conference Room: No.7 of the Westin Hotel
Speaker: School of Stomatology Medizinische Universität Wien Dr. Anna Knaus

Seminar Abstract
The Viennese prosthetic conceptis used to determine the complexity of cases. It is able to capture a history of relevant general findings and also to clarify the occlusal, periodontal and arthro/myogenic status of the patient. In complex cases additional examinations like condylography and cephalometrics are performed.The diagnostic findings are used to design the diagnostic wax-up, which provide on one hand the diagnostic package for malocclustion, on the other hand give the first therapeutic set up.The wax-up is also helpful to answer the question concerning the compatibility of the patient´s chief complaint with the dentist´s requirements in the prosthetic rehabilitation. Extended diagnostics could avoid some unpredictable problems during therapy. Sometimes medical or economic reasons make a compromise in the treatment plan necessary. In this lecture well-documented case reports illustrate the implementation of the individual treatment plan starting with the pre-therapy up to the recall. Different options of the prosthetic rehabilitation - fixed and removable solutions are presented.The difficulties, finding a compromise which satisfies both – the chief complaint of the patient and the dentist´s expectation – will be discussed.

Seminar Abstract
All on 4 Lingualized Occlusion

Objective of this presentation is to give a very brief overview of the treated full arch edentulous patients with a simplified and highly successful approach using 4 implants to support Fixed Hybrid prosthesis.

The long-term success of the implants and the definitive prosthesis is directly in proportion to the occlusion. Many occlusion options have been presented in dentistry over the years. An occlusal scheme called lingualized occlusion will be discussed in great detail providing the clinician with knowledge to provide long-term success for their full arch edentulous patients.

Seminar Abstract
Dental implanthas become an integral part of modern dentistry since mid 1980 in USA. True indications for dental implants by its inventor Dr. Branemark included the replacement of single missing teeth and in partially and completely edentulous situations. Unfortunately it is very different situation in clinical dentistry now.

The dilemma for many clinicians, especially general dentists, is when to treat a tooth endodontically and save it or extract it and subsequently placing an implant.   This dilemma is mainly due to Lack of information on modern endodontic therapy and Misinformation of dental implants.
Lack of Information on Modern Endodontics: Incorporation of microscope, rotary NiTi files and XP files, micro-irrigation methods and Bioceramic sealer have accomplished a complete endodontic therapy we could not have imagined 20 years ago.  In short, “Mission Accomplished!!” Along with these advancements in non-surgical endodontics came Microsurgical technique of apical surgery unimagined in the past giving over 90 % success for long term basis. Thus saving teeth via modern endo therapy using both nonsurgical and surgical ways is extremely predictable.

Misinformation of Implants: Implants after 30 years are now subject of critical evaluation.  It is long overdue. Recent critical studies in Sweden showed that over 40% of implants develop peri-implantitis after 9 years alarming the dental community that implants are NOT a permanent solution.  Key leaders and researchers are now warning the dental community that saving teeth first although periodontally compromised would be our first obligation as practiced pre-implant times.

In conclusion, this lecture points out and suggests clinicians should be able to compare modern endodontic and implant studies according to success and survival rates, understand the importance of an interdisciplinary treatment planning approach and be able to make an educated decision whether to endodontically treat a tooth or extract and place an implant.
