Punta Cana Implantology Congress: Agenda – part II

Punta Cana, famous for its gorgeous beaches and breathtaking landscapes, will soon provide the perfect setting for the AB Dental International Implantology Congress. This October, attendees will have the opportunity to learn, collaborate, and rejuvenate in the luxurious embrace of this tropical paradise.
The International Implantology Congress in Punta Cana will feature a diverse lineup of speakers, experts, and researchers, who will share their valuable insights on the latest advancements in dentistry.


Carlos Arturo González Llamas (Mexico)
The importance of peri-implant soft tissue and its relation to the conical connection and double platform change

In this lecture, Dr. Carlos Arturo González Llamas will cover the topic of bone loss around dental implants caused by an inappropriate implant placement depth and prosthetic connection.


Dr. Ricardo Naves (Chile)
Fundamental aspects for peri-implant bone stability: “zero bone loss concepts”

Nowadays, new technology and materials proved that losing even the minimum amount of bone around the implant yearly is not to be considered normal. In this lecture, Dr. Ricardo Naves will present the fundamental surgical and prosthetic features required to ensure zero peri-implant bone loss – and improved bone levels around the implant.


Dr. Aleksandra Nitecka – Buchta (Poland)
Bruxism as a risk factor in implant-prosthetic procedures

This lecture will examine the problems of implant-prosthetic reconstruction, with a special focus on patients with bruxism, as well as the risk factors affecting implant survival rate and increasing the number of treatment failures. Lastly, it will examine the current state of knowledge on the relation between the occurrence of bruxism and the risk of implant-prosthetic complications.


Prof. Angelo Cardarelli (Italy)
Osseodensification in maxillary sinus augmentation and use of I-ON conical connection

In this talk, an alternative technique to the normal sinus upper jaw lift will be presented. This technique represents a minimally-invasive approach to reduce biological costs using the osseodensification mode. With this technique, it is possible to place the implant with high primary stability and vertical bone height increase, both with and without bone grafting.


Prof. Daniele Botticelli (Italy)
Variables of interest in immediate implants in extraction sockets

There are several variables that can influence the healing process of implants installed immediately after the extraction of the tooth. This lecture will cover aspects such as the position and dimensions of the implants in relation to the extraction sockets, the use of alveolar preservation or regenerative techniques, and the presence of neighboring teeth.


Dr. Camilla Pecora (Italy)
Diagnosis and treatment plan: how to make the decision to place an implant

Due to the difficulty of drawing a dividing line when it comes to the treatment plan, practitioners must carefully evaluate all clinical and radiological data, as well as the patient’s expectations. The main goal is for the specialist to be able to correctly assess the situation in order to decide between saving the tooth and extracting it.


Dr. Sagi Sivan (Israel)
The role of patient-specific implants in screw-retained prosthetic reconstruction of severely atrophic jaws

The dental rehabilitation of an atrophic jaw poses many challenges. Given the advances in digital technologies, the idea of subperiosteally placed implants has been revived. The concept of today’s patient-specific subperiosteal implants (PSI) lies on a 3-dimensional model based on a CT scan of the patient’s jaw. Therefore, it allows the creation of a custom-made, tightly-fitting implant that is fixated with several multi-vectorial screws, which are carefully planned to avoid anatomical landmarks and to gain anchorage on dense bone.


Prof. Zvi Schwartz (USA)
Hydrophilic surface of implants exhibits increased osseointegration in an in vitro and animal model

Changes to implant surface properties alter the immune response, osteoblast differentiation of bone marrow stromal cells (MSCs), and implant integration in vivo. Implants that are exposed to air have a hydrophobic surface which can limit the overall implant success, due to the absorption of atmospheric hydrocarbons. Research suggests that applying plasma during implant placement is an effective method for enhancing osseointegration by increasing surface wettability.


Dr. Nick Trevlopoulos(Australia)
Digital workflow in same-day AOX – a team approach

This lecture will showcase the critical importance of workflow and teamwork in the achievement of same-day AOX rehabilitation. Those attending will enjoy a first-hand experience of patients’ journey from dental dysfunction and total lack of confidence to full restoration of both their dentures and their confidence.
