Soft Tissue Engineering for Optimal Esthetics
Lewis Cummings, M.S., D.D.S.
Course Description
This lecture will discuss the rationale and practical application of soft tissue augmentation procedures. Principles of successful soft tissue augmentation, to include minimally invasive surgical techniques will be reviewed. Soft tissue grafting options and donor tissue resources, their advantages and disadvantages will be examined.

Clinicians will also learn how these techniques can be utilized to enhance socket grafting and implant site development procedures. Current research findings, clinical experience and scientific evidence will be presented to support the materials and techniques demonstrated throughout the course.

About Dr. Cummings
WSP StevensonTeamSession LewisCummingsDr. Lewis Cummings, a Houston native, graduated from dental school at The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He continued his education with a residency in periodontics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Lincoln, where he earned a Masters of Science in Oral Biology. Throughout his residency, Dr. Cummings received advanced training in dental implants, hard tissue grafting and oral plastic surgery. While in Lincoln, Dr. Cummings began research in tissue engineering and now lectures internationally in this field. In conjunction with lecturing, Dr. Cummings teaches advanced surgical courses on hard and soft tissue regenerative techniques for oral rehabilitation utilizing both dental implants and natural teeth. Currently, he maintains a progressive periodontal practice in Kingwood, Texas, treating traditional periodontal disease with a special emphasis on minimally invasive techniques for oral rehabilitation and dental implant therapy.

Additionally, he holds associate clinical professor positions with both the University of Texas Dental School at Houston and the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Lincoln, teaching soft tissue graft and dental implant surgical techniques in the post-graduate programs. He is also an instructor for the American Institute of Implant Dentistry in Washington, DC, teaching advanced periodontal plastic surgery and dental implant procedures to dentists from around the world.

New Digital Technologies & Computer Guided Implant Therapy in the Daily Practice
Pedro M. Trejo, M.S., D.D.S.
Course Description
Three-dimensional assessment of hard structures, particularly potential implant sites, is now possible due to the advent of Cone-Beam radiography. The course will examine how visual volumetric assessments improve the clinician’s diagnostic abilities, while also indicating or contra-indicating implants and implant related treatment.

The lecture will be divided in three major topics in which new digital technologies will be demonstrated:

1.  CBCT and the NobelClinician software diagnostics advantages.
2.  STL guides to facilitate implants in the aesthetic zone. Application of the angled channel abutment and of “
3.  Fusion”
4.  of Dicom data sets.
5.  The implant supported hybrid bridge, an elegant prosthetic option for the severely compromised dentition.
6.  Immediate loading of multiple implants, a different point of view.

Learning Objectives
At the completion of the course, participants should be able to:

•  The NobelClinician software advantages, new technologies and work ow for implant
•  Recognize indications for computer guided implant surgery.
•  Implement the clinical steps required to execute precise implant placement using
stereolithographic guides (STL).
•  In addition, the course will identify the challenges when utilizing STL-guided surgery
•  Soft tissue management
•  Irregular bone anatomy
•  Tooling, cooling, etc.
•  STL cutting and seating
•  Free-hand placement as an exit strategy
•  Biomechanical considerations to avoid restorative complications
