PIMA@UM MICROSURGERY WEBINAR SERIES
February 26 – May 14, 2021

Register for Course

Course Number: P980-21
Credits: 7.5
Course Time: 9:00am - 10:00am
Participants: DDS, Specialists in Periodontics, Graduate Students in Periodontics
Fee: $129 per session, Multiple Session and Graduate Student Pricing Available
Course Directors: Hsun-Liang (Albert) Chan, DDS, MS & Diego Velasquez-Plata, DDS, MS
Course Overview: Microsurgery, using either loupes or the operating microscope along with micro-instruments, is a paradigm shift for performing periodontal and implant-related surgeries. Unique features of the microscope such as unparalleled magnification together with built-in coaxial illumination, allow for precise tactile and visually driven handling of hard- and soft tissues. Literature has well-documented that microscope assisted surgery accelerates flap revascularization, enhances esthetics, improves clinical outcomes, and reduces postoperative morbidity. The Periodontal and Implant Microsurgery Academy at the University of Michigan (PiMA@UM) proudly hosts this series of introductory lectures that will be given by a panel of nationally and globally renown microsurgery experts.

The course objectives are to familiarize participants with:

  • Fundamental advantages of minimally-invasive approach toward wound healing
  • Comparisons and contrasts between loupes and operating microscope
  • Microsurgical armamentarium, including micro instruments and microsutures
  • Key tips for a smooth incorporation of operating microscope into routine clinical workflow
  • A variety of surgical procedures that can be accomplished under operating microscope, including intraoral hard- and soft-tissue regeneration

Zoom Webinar
Course Time: 12:00pm - 2:30pm EST
Fee: $75
Course Speaker: Won Moon, DMD, MS
Course Overview:

  • Controversial Topics in Orthodontics: Maxillary Expansion:
    Maxillary Expansion has been one of many controversial topics in orthodontics for decades. Its efficacy in mature patients, stability, ability to improve upper airway and sleep apnea, etc. have been debated. The Midfacial Skeletal Expander (MSE) has evolved since 2004, and its application has been steadily growing globally. With a proliferation of MSE related publications by multiple authors in these areas of controversy, there is clear evidence to support its impact. The dental and skeletal effects of maxillary expansion using MSE will be illustrated, based on research data.
  • The Nuts and Bolts of MSE Application and Troubleshooting:
    The essential nuts and bolts of the diagnosis, treatment planning, appliance selection, fabrication, expansion protocols, patient management, and troubleshooting process related to MSE will be highlighted. Some recent discoveries will be explored with research data.

Course Overview: This year, symposium Scientific Chairs, Dr. William Giannobile and Dr. Hom-Lay Wang, will preside over lectures and a poster session on the topic of Twilight between Soft and Hard Tissue Grafts for Periodontal and Implant Reconstruction. Hard tissue augmentation without soft tissue coverage and soft tissue graft without proper hard tissue support will not resulted in a predictable treatment outcome. Hence, soft and hard tissue management around natural dentition and dental implant are keys for dental/implant overall treatment success. To create ideal periodontal and implant soft and hard tissue conditions enable clinicians to achieve required esthetic outcome as well as to maintain treatment long-term stability. This symposium invites international well-known expertise in this field to resolve these twilight challenges. Recent research findings and newly developed clinical skills and tips will be shared with all participants. The pros and cons of techniques used to treat soft and hard tissue grafting complications will also be discussed.

FAILURES AND COMPLICATIONS IN IMPLANT SUPPORTED PROSTHESES: HOW TO MANAGE THESE SITUATIONS

Register for Course

Course Number: PR-B965-20
Credits: 3
Location: Online only
Course Time: 24/7
Fees: $95
Course Director: Gustavo Mendonça DDS, MSc, PhD
Course Overview: In 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 solutions for totally and partially edentulous, and single-tooth cases. The most common complications are loosening or fracture of the gold screw, loosening of the abutment screw, porcelain 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.
