Live WebinarClinical concepts and emerging strategies in reconstructive periodontal surgery and periodontal and peri-implant infection control
Prof. Anton Sculean
03 Dec 2020, 12:30 AM Copenhagen
Reconstructive/regenerative procedures in periodontology aim at rebuilding the periodontal supporting tissues which have been lost following periodontal disease or trauma. Substantial evidence indicates that in carefully selected patients and defects, combined with a strict pre -and postoperative infection control, reconstructive/regenerative periodontal surgery may lead to substantial clinical benefits evidenced by probing depth reduction, clinical attachment level gain, defect fill, thus improving long-term tooth prognosis and survival. Emerging evidence also suggests that the use of certain types of lasers and/or antibacterial photodynamic therapy (a-PDT) may result in reduction of inflammation and improved clinical stability, thus representing potential modalities for maintaining periodontal and peri-implant tissue stability.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic cast a renewed light on the importance of infection control routines, both in daily life and in the medical field. Infection control and prevention commonly observed in the dental practice are safe and effective, but hygiene routines need to be known, understood and strictly observed by the whole dental office team.
Live WebinarRemovable dentures, a viable treatment option for edentulous patients
Dr. Martin Schimmel
25 Nov 2020, 05:00 PM Copenhagen
The use of osseointegrated implants for the stabilization of mandibular complete dentures is one of the great achievements in modern dentistry. It is well documented in the literature that the stabilization of lower dentures with two implants reduces peri-implant bone atrophy, increases chewing efficiency, reduces masseter muscle atrophy, and improves the patient’s oral health related quality of life significantly. Diagnostic prerequisites for backward planning as well as the use of two-piece as well as small diameter one-piece implants will be considered. In an approach that considers the general functional capacity and possible functional decline of the elderly edentulous patient a staged approach for the choice overdentures attachments will be discussed.

Live WebinarIndication-based abutment selection
Dr. Julia-Gabriela Wittneben
11 Nov 2020, 11:00 AM Copenhagen
The possibilities and expectations of achieving a successful functional and esthetic outcome have been raised with the evolution of implant designs, prosthetic components and dental materials. Even after a successful surgical approach, the prosthodontic finalization remains challenging. The overall focus of this webinar will remain on the selection of implant abutments more specifically, focusing on different indications, materials and abutment types. Especially the selection of implant abutments in the esthetic zone seems still challenging and has an influence on the final esthetic result. This will be highlighted also in respect to the evidence concerning retention type (screw versus cement). All aspects of the lecture will be presented with reference to contemporary literature and clinical studies. The objective of this lecture is therefore to provide a summary of the clinical evidence which is of relevance to the practitioners perspective of implant prosthetic treatment

Live WebinarInflammation and type 2 diabetes: pathogenesis and current treatment protocols
Marc Y. Donath MD
10 Nov 2020, 06:00 PM Copenhagen
In patients with type 2 diabetes an inflammatory process is present. This inflammation is due to a pathological activation of the innate immune system, caused by metabolic stress and is partly governed by IL-1 signaling. We identified the role of IL-1β and insulin in the regulation of metabolism and immunity in response to food intake. Yet, as it becomes chronic, activation of auto-inflammatory processes may then become deleterious.

On Demand WebinarComputer-controlled local anaesthesia & paediatric patients: how to make your injections safe and effective
Aneta Olszewska DDS, PhD
Local anaesthesia can often be unbearable for young patients and stressful for a dentist. A computer-controlled local anaesthesia system allows the delivery speed and pressure to be adjusted to the clinical situation, developmental, anatomical, and physiological tissue differences observed in children. Effective anaesthesia is achieved with a lower amount of analgesic reducing the risk of toxic or allergic reactions and minimizing discomfort and sensation of numbness after the treatment. It helps prevent unwanted self- injuries to the lips, cheeks, and tongue.

Dr. Eric Thevissen
Despite all efforts of dental professionals the prevalence and incidence of total edentulism is still increasing on a global scale. Second observation from a recent meta review in JDR (2020) was that total tooth loss is decreasing in low-income countries while, on the other hand, it is increasing in upper- or middle-income countries. Is periodontal disease the main responsible for this evolution?
