Course Overview:

This groundbreaking symposium will focus on innovative approaches to treatment planning for tooth preservation and tooth replacement, including long-term implant treatment planning challenges. The presenters will address questions such as: • Is it possible to grow teeth from stem cells for transplantation? • Is it possible to transplant teeth that have been traumatically avulsed with another tooth from the same patient? • Is it possible to preserve more enamel and cervical dentin to prevent teeth from cervical fracture? These lectures will help dentists make difficult decisions when treatment planning tooth replacement options. Don’t miss learning the latest clinically based solutions for tooth preservation/retention, tooth replacement, and alveolar growth and development through adulthood and how this impacts treatment planning for implants and more. “Models for longevity: the possibilities of conservative endodontic approaches” Instructor: Dr. Steve Baerg Description: Conservative dentin management has long been appreciated by the restorative community and opens new possibilities for the specialty of endodontics. This presentation will discuss the rationale and benefits of restoratively driven conservative endodontic approaches. Case specific technical approaches will be presented emphasizing how to incorporate these approaches into clinical practice. Stem Cell Tooth Replacement and Dental Regeneration” Instructor: Dr. Luiz Bertassoni Description: Dental regeneration has advanced considerably in recent years due to the effective use of stem cells. Learn how stem cells from various origins are used for the engineering of whole teeth, dental pulp, periodontal ligament and vascularized bone in this lecture. The coveted idea of engineering an entire tooth in the lab has already become a reality. Similarly, regeneration of complex craniofacial structures, such as the dental pulp, alveolar bone and periodontal ligament, have also advanced considerably. Craniofacial Growth and Implant Esthetics” Instructor: Dr. Fereidoun Daftary This lecture will review the growth of the skull and mandible and its’ clinical significance for tooth replacement in children and adolescents. Often times, growth during adulthood is not factored into restorative treatment planning for dental implants. These clinical observations were often absent from the literature due to short observation periods, dismissed as artifacts, or simply overlooked. Now with decades of post treatment observation of single tooth and partially edentulous implant restorations, it is becoming apparent that for some, there are indeed occlusal, periodontal and esthetic ramifications of this subtle, continued developmental through adulthood. Don’t miss this lecture so that you too can understand the ramifications of dental implants in growing patients. “Autotransplantation of Premolars to Replace Traumatized Maxillary Incisors in the Growing Patient.” Instructor: Dr. Jim Janakievski, Description: This presentation will review the surgical and restorative considerations for autotransplantation. Options to replace missing or ankylosed teeth in the anterior maxilla are limited for growing patients. Treatment is usually aimed at developing the ridge for future implant placement. Autotransplantation of a premolar to the incisor site offers permanent tooth replacement using a natural tooth to achieve an optimal aesthetic & functional outcome.

Course Objectives:

• Gain insight into the meaning and significance of patient centered endodontic care and supportive models • Understand the rationale for restoratively driven approaches and the associated lexicon for conservative dentin management • Identify case specific endodontic approaches utilizing conservative dentin management• Become familiar with recent developments in stem cell research and their relevance to dentistry • Appreciate how teeth are engineered in the lab and the relevance to tooth replacement treatment planning • Be familiar with the long-term effects of continued craniofacial growth of adults • Understand the implications for intra-arch stability of teeth relative to implant restorations • Gain insight into relevance to inter-arch occlusal stability involving natural teeth opposing implant restorations, anterior esthetic stability of implant restorations relative adjacent teeth and supporting periodontium • Understand the appropriate time to plan for tooth autotransplantation. • Be acquainted with the surgical considerations for an optimal outcome. • Recognize the process of restoring a transplanted premolar to mimic a central incisor.
