Course Overview

This course is designed to help dentists incorporate soft tissue graft and advanced implant surgery areas into their daily practices.  After completion of this three-day continuing education course, the participant will be exposed to:

  • Implant esthetic treatment plant
  • Indications and contraindications for regular periodontal surgeries, periodontal plastic surgery, surgical crown lengthening and advanced bone graft/implant procedures
  • Soft tissue management around dental implants
  • Management of common implant complications
  • Advanced bone graft procedures that include ridge augmentation, guided bone regeneration (e.g., sandwich bone augmentation), monocortical onlay grafting (e.g., autogenous and allogenic as well as use microsaw and piezo for procurement of donor site and preparation of the recipient sites) and sinus lift procedures (e.g., lateral window approach and osteotome technique as well as piezo instrumentation for opening the window).
  • Tissue engineering (e.g., growth factors; e.g., platelet derived growth factors PDGF), enamel matrix proteins, gene therapy, and platelet rich plasma (PRP) could be used to enhance clinical outcomes.

This CE course combines didactic lectures and hands-on workshop with fresh cadaver specimens to cover a broad range of advanced periodontal/implant surgical techniques.

Course Overview

This course we will present and discuss the most common problems that occur with implant-supported restorations.  We will discuss the available treatment options and so lutions for totally and partially endentulous and single-tooth cases.  The most common complications are loosening or fracture, problems with prosthesis misfit, non-passive fit, peri-implantitis and aesthetic related issues.  In most cases, these failures and complications are easy to resolve and demand a well-defined occlusion and replacement of the prosthesis.  On the other hand, in a few cases, it takes longer to manage the problem and may require placing new implants and modifying prosthesis designs.  


Course Objectives
After completion of this continuing education course, the participant will be exposed to: Understand failures and complications related to implant-supported prostheses.  Identify the reason why these failures and complications occur. Discuss possible treatment options.   This CE course includes didactic lectures to help understand failures and complications related to restoration of dental implants.

Jarabak Lecture Summary
Computer Technology is pervasive in the modern dental, orthodontic and other dental specialty practices.  Computers, WiFi, and the Internet in these practices are the enablers not only for traditional local applications, but also for an ever expanding and increasingly bewildering array of Cloud based services.  Given the ever-changing nature of the digital 
environment, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the practitioner to gauge what is needed and what truly makes sense to incorporate into a practice. Mr. McEvoy’s talk will provide the needed insights on computer innovations and their pragmatic uses to enhance the efficiency and security of your practice.  Because of the universal relevance of this information, the material presented will be applicable to dentists and dental specialists.

Lecture Objectives 

Participants will learn about: 
  • ‘The Cloud’ – What the heck is it and why would a dentist or specialist care?
  • Internet Backup – Is it time to add this to your backup strategy?
  • How $100 can make your existing PC faster than ever
  • Ransomware – How the hackers are becoming billionaires encrypting your Practice data and holding it for ransom
  • Protecting yourself from internal attacks – Who needs hackers when we have a disgruntled employee?
  • Simple steps towards security – a collection of easy-to-implement tactics that help protect your Practice from hacks and help you with HIPAA
  • Safe Surfing – Personal surfing by the staff is the primary cause of Spyware getting into the Practice computers. What can we do about it?
  •  Buying Guide – Advice on how to get just what you need without being ripped off when buying that next computer for your home or Dental Practice
  • Cool Technology Tips & Tricks to help you make the most of what you already have

B610-16 - Removable Partial Denture: Success and Failure  (details)

Course Number: B610-16
Course Title: Removable Partial Denture: Success and Failure
Course Date: November 12, 2016 (Saturday)

Speakers
Dr. Won-Suk Oh, Clinical Professor of Dentistry at the University of Michigan, received certificate in Prosthodontics and MS from the University of Minnesota and certificate in Maxillofacial Prosthetics and Implant Dentistry at UCLA.

Dr. Berna Saglik, Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan, received certificate in Prosthodontics and MS from the University of Michigan.   

Dr. Furat George, Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan, received certificate in Prosthodontics and MS from the University of Michigan, clinical assistant professor at the University of Michigan, received certificate in Prosthodontics and MS from the University of Michigan

Course Overview: 
The fabrication of a removable partial denture (RPD) is the most common strategy for restoring partially edentulous patients for oral funtions and esthetics.  However, the literature has shown mixed results of success and failure of RPD treatment.  This may partly relate to the curriculum change and misunderstanding of biomechanical aspects of RPD design.  This course will discuss various clinical and laboratory stages of RPD design for long-term success of RPD treatment and address a current digital technology of designing the partial framworks for better communication with patients and dental laboratories.  When restoring complex mouth with compromised dentition, the additional use fo dental implants adds the supoort, stability and retention, and enhances the comfort and esthetics.   
   

Course Objectives: 
At the end of the course the participants should be able to understand:
  • The validity of RPD treatment, including surveying and abutment design.
  • Cause-effect for RPD success and failure.
  • Trouble shooting for successful RPD treatment
  • A computer-aided digital technology of RPD design and fabrication.
  • The RPD design and treatment with the aid of dental implants for better function and esthetics.

OP301-17 - 44th Annual Moyers Symposium "Sleep Apnea: What Every Clinician (and Patient) Should Know"
 (details)

Moyers Symposium 2017
Sleep Apnea: What Every Clinician (and Patient)
Should Know
March 4-5, 2017

Presymposium March 3, 2017

Sleep apnea is a common disorder that disrupts sleep, with breathing pauses lasting from a few seconds to minutes and occurring 30 times or more an hour. Most people who have sleep apnea do not know they have it because it happens only during sleep. Untreated sleep apnea can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, diabetes, morning headache, and drowsy driving. Health care professionals usually cannot detect the condition during routine office visits. Also, no blood test can help diagnose the condition. A family member or bed partner may be the first to notice signs of sleep apnea. Over 80% of individuals who have sleep apnea do not know that they have this medical problem.

The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), during which the airway collapses or becomes blocked during sleep. OSA is more common in people who are overweight, but it can affect individuals of any age and body type. Even children who have enlarged tonsillar or constricted naso-pharyngeal tissues may have obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea requires long-term management; lifestyle changes, oral appliances, surgery, and breathing devices such as CPAP can be used to treat sleep apnea successfully as long as the condition is recognized.

The Moyers Symposium has had a long history of dealing with interdisciplinary topics and the 44th Annual Moyers Symposium is no exception.  We are bringing together 10 health care providers with expertise in sleep impaired breathing to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea patients, considering in detail the multiple treatment approaches that are available. Many of the attendees may discover that this condition is personal to themselves as well when the signs, symptoms and history of sleep apnea are presented.

Location: Rackham Auditorium

Complimentary social events will be held Friday March 3rd and Saturday March 4th in Rackham Auditorium.

The University of Michigan designates this activity for 15 hours continuing education credits. 6 hours will be awarded for attending Presymposium only.
