"24 Hour Teeth"
presented by James W. Gibney, DMD JD

TIME: 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Course Description:

The age of digital dentistry has arrived. This course will give attendees an in-depth look into the realities of in-office CAD/CAM milling of crowns and bridges. Each of the major steps in the process will be discussed including data acquisition (scanning), designing, milling, and post-production finishing. Emphasis will be placed on how dentists with different technology needs can harness the power of digital dentistry for their own practices.

Course objectives:
1. Learn about open architecture systems for the in-office fabrication of crowns and bridges.
2. Learn the essentials of scanning, designing, and milling CAD/CAM restorations.
3. Learn how advances in materials are revolutionizing the modern restorative practice.
4. Learn how this technology can be applied to immediate load full arch
implant dentistry.

Dr. Gibney is a 1985 graduate of the University of Florida College of Dentistry and a 2009 graduate of Stetson University College of Law. He currently practices dentistry and law in Spring Hill, FL. Dr. Gibney is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry, a Master in the Academy of General Dentistry and a Fellow in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. He is the developer of “24 Hour Teeth” which is a two-part system of fabricating crowns and bridges combined with a digital approach to implant dentistry allowing the fully edentulous patient to be restored with provisional fixed prostheses in as little as 24 hours after the initial consult. He loves to share his knowledge and is well known for his 2 day hands-on course titled "24 Hour Teeth-Implant Workshop" in his office and limits only 6 students per class to maximize personal interaction and education.


"Managing Bone and Soft-Tissue Deficiencies in Mandible with Re-vascularized Ridge-split"
presented by Rajiv Patel, BDS., MDS

TIME: 10:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Course Description:

Many clinicians have mastered the bone expansion technique to manage the lack of appropriate width of available alveolar bone for the placement of dental implants. However, expanding the thick cortical plates, especially, in the mandibular arch has been a challenge. The ridge-Split procedure has been proven to provide a predictable outcome, wherein an atrophic ridge is surgically split and expanded and either grafted with bone allograft or simultaneously placed dental implants. Following the N.I.R.I.S.A.B. philosophy, a novel approach to Ridge-Split procedure with simultaneous implant placement, while maintaining the vascularity of the alveolar bone will be explained. Criteria for case selection and two-stage surgical protocols with appropriate variations and modifications for the predictable outcome will be discussed with several clinical cases. Also, a simplified technique to gain additional width of Keratinized attached mucosa (Gingiva) at the edentulous alveolar ridge will be presented.

Learning Objectives:
 Understand the rationale for Surgical Ridge Split Procedure.
 Identify the Criteria for Case Selection for Two-Stage Re-Vascularized Ridge Split Procedure.
 Learn the Two-Stage Surgical Protocol for Re-Vascularized Ridge Split Procedure.
 Learn a simplified technique to gain additional width of Keratinized attached mucosa (Gingiva)
in edentulous areas.

"Predictable and Safe Sinus Augmentation"
TIME: 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
SUBJECT CODE: 690Course Description
The crestal approach to sinus lift surgery, or CAS is a less invasive technique than traditional approaches of elevating the sinus membrane for dental implant placement. Hiossen’s approach to this surgery further minimizes the chance of sinus perforation, providing the safest possible option for your patient will be on recognizing the clinical indications, understanding the biological principles of these surgeries, exploring the latest techniques and material available, and understanding the rationale behind these methods.Learning Objectives
- Proficiency in the anatomy of the sinus
- Familiarity with the concepts of crestal approach sinus lift
- Understanding of bone grafting and graft materials
- Awareness of the advantages and limitations of using a crestal approach
- Clinical Classification of bone defects in relation to the surgical placement of dental implants
- Clinical application of various bone grafting materials and barrier membranes
