"Development of a Novel Mineral-Organic Bone Adhesive with Osteopromotive Potential for Implant Dentistry" WITH BRIAN HESS & George Kay

Development of a Novel Mineral-Organic Bone Adhesive with Osteopromotive Potential for Implant Dentistry

Course Description:

LaunchPad Medical is developing a high-strength, injectable bone adhesive called TetraniteÒ, which was co-invented by the Company Founders, CEO (Brian Hess) and CSO (George Kay, DMD, MMSc). This material is synthetically made from a mineral-organic composite, self-setting, non-exothermic, and develops high strength bonds to living bone and metal surfaces within a few minutes.  Not only does this technology have immediate and persistent load-bearing strength, bonding to the bone as well as to metal, but it also is resorbed and replaced one-for-one with new bone over the course of several months.  The use of this novel and unique material will open the field of regenerative and restorative dentistry to much improved options.  It will reduce the duration and complexity of dental implant procedures, allow for less invasive surgeries, will allow to combine procedures within a single visit, and will improve patient outcomes by reducing pain, recovery time, and the overall cost of care.  The Company has initiated clinical trials for its lead indication, which is to provide instant implant stabilization for the immediate placement and possibly early loading of dental implants into bony sites that otherwise lack mechanical support. The second product will be formulated to more quickly resorb while maintaining volume and will be indicated for complicated and larger volume of bone grafting cases, initially in dentistry and oral surgery and later for orthopedics. The Company plans to introduce its first products to implant dentists through training events with known and respected dental speakers which the company has started to identify.  

Key Learning Objectives: 

  • Review of current bone grafting technology exploring key features and differentiated attributes,
  • Pre-clinical evidence of the clinically desirable characteristics of Tetranite.
  • Proposed clinical utility and testing,
  • Future implant dentistry products and indications (ridge augmentation, sinus lift, other bone augmentation and fracture fixation)

A Maine native, Dr. Traina attended The University of Maine for his undergraduate degree. He earned his D.M.D. degree from Boston University before heading to The University of California, San Francisco post-doctoral Prosthodontics program.  Last year he joined Prosthodontics Associates, and he teaches at UNE part-time.  Dr. Traina has been active over the past year in the Casco Bay Study Club and is excited to share knowledge and learn with the esteemed fellow practitioners in Maine.

Course Description:

The "Tooth Be Told - Seminar Series" will be an interactive discussion type seminar where participants will be encouraged to present cases and ask clinical questions that they find interesting or challenging.  The sessions will be in large part treatment planning based as a start point, and subtopics will be discussed as they come up.  No two sessions will be alike as the direction of the course will be greatly influenced by the cases being presented by our fellow colleagues. Clinicians who come to "Tooth Be Told" are encouraged to prepare one or two cases for presentation and discussion.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Attendees should be able to organize and present complex cases for precise treatment planning and potential communication between practitioners.
  2. Attendees should be able to recognize occlusal diseases and determine how to properly treat said disease.
  3. Attendees will learn about multidisciplinary treatment and how it pertains to complex treatment plans.

ESTHETICS IN RESTORATIVE AND IMPLANT DENTISTRY

With Dr. Eric Van Dooren


7.5 CE available

Breakfast and Lunch Provided 


BIO:

Dr. Eric Van Dooren attended the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, where he received his degree in dentistry in 1982. After graduating he opened a private practice in Antwerp, Belgium, which is limited to periodontics, fixed prosthodontics, and implants. Currently Dr. Van Dooren is a Visiting Professor at University of Liege ( Belgium) and  University of Marseille . He is  an  active member of the European Academy of Esthetic Dentistry. Dr Van Dooren lectures nationally and internationally , mainly on aesthetics,implants and aesthetic periodontal surgery.


 Course Description:

The choice of a so-called ”ideal restoration” is the biggest challenge for a prosthodontist today and needs a comprehensive and sophisticated decision-making process running on many different levels (team patient-dentist-technologist, general esthetic aspects, functional and biologic situation, intra- and intermaxillary situation; tooth and implant situation and antagonistic relationship, soft and hard tissues situations, biomaterial used). The aim, to copy nature by choosing the many different periodontally- and implant supported prosthodontic solutions and by applying certain rules, supports our efforts for an ideal restoration. However there still are many compromises to be accepted by the whole team.

The restoration of natural teeth in general and the placement and the restoration of dental implants in special remains a challenge not only because of esthetic and functional demands but mostly because of difficult pre-existing anatomy. Anatomic factors such as horizontal or vertical bone deficiencies and iatrogenic factors such as improper implant selection (under- or over-sized) or the malpositioning of dental implants (mesiodistal, apicocoronal, and orofacial dimensions with defining “comfort” and “danger” zones for proper implant position) for an esthetic implant restoration may further hinder the ideal restoration. A short historical overview followed by a treatment concept and decision making process based on literature evidence (clinical aspects to be respected), is presented.


Learning Objectives:

  • Esthetic Diagnostic tools
  • Soft Tissue Management and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
  • Surgical procedures guided by the Diagnostic Wax-up
  • Ridge defect analysis: what is possible and what is impossible.
  • Ridge augmentation and site development
  • New trends in Esthetic Implant Treatment

7.5 CEU Available

Breakfast and lunch provided

BIO:

Prof. Att is a Professor of Prosthodontics and Chairman, Department of Prosthodontics, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He was the Director of Postgraduate Program at the Department of Prosthodontics, Dental School, and University of Freiburg. He is a board-certified prosthodontist from the German Society of Prosthodontics and Biomaterials (DGPro) and an active member of the European Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (EAED). He serves as Past President of the Prosthodontics Group of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) as well as President of the Arabian Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (ARAED) and President Elect of the International Academy for Digital Dental Medicine (IADDM). Prof. Att obtained his DDS degree in 1997 from Tishreen University and received the Dr. Med Dent (2003) and PhD (2010) degrees as well as the title of Extraordinary Professor (2013) from the University of Freiburg. In 2018, he was appointed as a Professor and Chairman of Prosthodontics at TUSDM. He was a Visiting Assistant Professor from 2005 to 2007 at the Weintraub Center for Reconstructive Biotechnology, UCLA School of Dentistry. Prof. Att’s teaching and clinical activities focus on perio-prosthetic rehabilitation of multidisciplinary cases as well as the implementation of digital technologies in reconstructive dentistry.


Description:

The progressive shift towards implementing digitally-driven 3D engineering tools in reconstructive dentistry is obvious. Compared to conventional methods, the ultimate goal of digital technologies is to improve the quality and capabilities in examination, diagnosis, and treatment of the dental patient. It is still questionable, however, whether such digital tools facilitate improved accuracy in data acquisition and assessment, superior efficacy in treatment planning, and more controlled and faster manufacturing process. This presentation will provide an overview of 3D engineering in comprehensive dento-facial rehabilitation and discuss different possibilities and advantages when using a conventional or a digital approach.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the different components of the digital workflow in reconstructive dentistry.

  • See how the combination of different digital technologies can benefit the overall treatment.

  • Discover the advantages and drawbacks of implementing the digital workflow in complex rehabilitation.
