    Dr. Markus Blatz

    Lecture Synopsis

    The recent evolution in ceramic, adhesive, and CAD/CAM technologies is breathtaking and offers a whole new range of aesthetic, less invasive, and long-lasting treatment options in restorative and implant dentistry. However, there are many open questions and straight answers are hard to find.

    What are the fundamental aesthetic treatment planning guidelines to select the best materials and treatment options for our patients considering the large variety of silica-based, high-strength, and hybrid ceramic materials available today? How to best integrate digital workflows and resin bonding technologies? How to design new smiles and handle bonded laminate veneers? Do different ceramics require specific laboratory and clinical treatment to function properly in the mouth? Is all zirconia the same? How to cement different ceramics? What are the best protocols and materials to restore dental implants? And, in this age of “evidence-based dentistry”, what is the scientific evidence on all of these topics?

    This presentation will answer such questions in an unbiased manner and provide an update on aesthetic, less invasive, and long-term functional treatment options from conservative laminate veneers to implant-supported full-mouth rehabilitations. Case selection, tooth preparation, dental implants, digital manufacturing in the dental laboratory and in clinics, fundamental material science, as well as cementation and bonding techniques of ceramics based on decades of research and the latest scientific evidence will be presented.

    We are helping to facilitate the collection of old dental instruments for donation to U of A palaeontology students for use in their field work (the Paleo-Pik project). We will be accepting instrument donations at our event and appreciate any contributions big or small.

    WANTED:  All dental hand instruments: scalers, probes, chisels, pluggers, etc., , that you no longer use or may have damaged/ broken.

    PURPOSE: Hand Instruments will be donated for excavation work and research at the Dino Lab, U of A, Royal Tyrrell Museum at Drumheller and the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum in Wembley, Alberta

    ALSO:  Instruments rolls for carrying instruments and small tools boxes, can also be donated.

    Please include your business card (optional) with your donation.

    We invite and provide free registration for all University of Alberta Dentistry students.

    Dr. Sonia Leziy

    Lecture Synopsis

    Discussion on the rationale for this treatment approach, how I make it work in a time and cost-effective manner, illustrations to emphasize the use in small to full edentulous sites. I have a fairly large focus on immediate implant placement, but with peripheral discussion on delayed protocols and ridge preservation.

    Generally tied in with a digital workflow. I also discuss surgical treatment concepts with a fairly large focus on soft tissue management and grafting protocols.

    Focus on Peri-implant diseases (recognition and management)

    Biography

    Dr. Leziy completed her post-graduate degree in Periodontics at the University of British Columbia. She Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, a Fellow of the ICOI, and a member of the Canadian Academy of Periodontists, the American Academy of Periodontists and the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry. She has chaired and moderated scientific programs for several organizations. She is an associate clinical professor at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Leziy maintains positions on several editorial boards. She is the implant editor for the journal Inside Dentistry (Aegis publishing). Dr. Leziy is a key-opinion clinician with Straumann and 3Shape. Among her articles published in numerous peer reviewed journals on implant esthetics and surgical protocols, she has also contributed 4 textbook chapters published by Quintessence Publishing (2008, 2011) and by Wiley Publishing (2018) and Quintessence Publishing (anticipated late 2022). Dr. Leziy has been involved in several clinical trials involving dental implant design advances. Her Elatus Dental Bio-architecture hands-on courses focus on soft tissue grafting advances (dermal ‘ARC’ protocol and guided implant surgery and restoration).

    Dr. Leziy lectures internationally on the subject of implants, digital workflows and advanced esthetics/periodontal plastic surgery. She was a Lucy Hobbs Award Winner in 2012, and 2013 co-recipient of the Seattle Study Club Saul Schluger Award. She has been recognized among the top 100 clinicians in continuing education by Dentistry Today in 2007 to present.

    She maintains a full time private practice on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

    Dr. Scott Froum

    Lecture Synopsis

      As more practitioners become involved in the placement of dental implants the proportion of implant complications will dramatically increase. A recent paradigm shift in dentistry has been the incorporation of regeneration/repair of ailing dental implants. In addition, as 'saving implants vs saving teeth' are compared both clinically and financially, the literature shows a much higher degree of predictability and a lower financial burden when practitioners attempt to keep the existing dentition in the mouth through regenerative dental therapy. This lecture will focus on current and new biotechnology that can enhance regeneration around both teeth and dental implants. Objectives:

      1.      Learn prognosis classifications for dental implants and teeth

      2.      Implement hard and soft tissue grafting into your armamentarium for treating implant and tooth lesions

      3.      Establish a save vs. extract decision matrix for both teeth and implants

      Biography

      Coming soon.
