Course Overview: As dental and orthodontic practitioners, it can be challenging to keep up with the continual flow of new evidence in support of traditional vs. non-traditional treatment philosophies and techniques. For this 47th Annual Moyers Symposium presenters will provide the latest knowledge on a variety of topics that may not have yet achieved a level of consensus in our profession. Many questions remain. What is adequate evidence to achieve professional consensus? What is the expert consensus on the orthodontists’ role in obstructive sleep apnea, TMD, and new therapies such as the Carrier appliance, implant supported skeletal expansion and corticotomies? Are traditional biomechanic principles relevant to our newer treatment techniques used with clear aligners? Is there any upside to DYI orthodontics and if not, how should our profession handle this phenomenon? The goal of this year’s symposium is for attendees to participate in lively discussion and leave with greater confidence in their perception of consensus in diagnosis and treatment options.
In addition, the 45th Annual International Conference on Craniofacial Research (the “Presymposium”) will be held on the Friday before the Moyers Symposium, on Feb 28, 2020 in the Kellogg Auditorium of the School of Dentistry. The Presymposium conference will feature presentations by speakers and time for discussion of presented topics on orthodontic digital technologies, biomedical advances and additional relevant craniofacial research. A Presymposium Reception will be held outside the Kellogg Auditorium in the School of Dentistry immediately following Presymposium talks on Friday. You are encouraged to attend both the Presymposium and Symposium meetings.

Course Overview: Implant therapy has been successful with the development of new implant surfaces and treatment protocols. However, recent clinical studies have reported a relatively high failure rate with accelerated bone loss, peri-implantitis, screw loosening and fracture, crown dislodgement, porcelain fracture, and other biological and mechanical complications. This presentation will address key components of implant therapy and focus on functional and biomechanical aspects of fixed implant-supported prosthesis to enhance the success and avoid unwanted complications related to misuse of dental implants.

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.

AVOIDING AND MANAGING IMPLANT COMPLICATIONS: A HANDS-ON PROGRAM

Course Number: P933-20
Credits: 14
Location: School of Dentistry, Ann Arbor, Michigan
Registration Time: 7:30am
Course Time: 8:00am – 5:00pm
Fees: $1,850
Course Director: Hom-Lay Wang, DDS, MSD, PhD
Course Overview: Implant complications have become a major challenge for many dentists who place implants. This program is designed to help dentists who place or restore implants to better understand what’s new in this field and how to avoid these problems. New definitions such as plaque induced peri-implantitis and non-plaque associated peri-implant diseases as well as treatment prognosis of peri-implant diseases will be presented. Recent research findings of how surface coatings or the titanium particles influence the incidence of implant complications will be discussed. In addition, this program will provide the mechanisms (e.g., surgically triggered, prosthetically triggered and biological induced implant complications) of how implant bone loss and implant failure can occur. Specifically, how to manage implant esthetic, biological, biomechanical complications will be demonstrated to the participants. Three decision trees (implant biological complication management, implant treatment based upon defect morphology and implant soft tissue recession classification and proposed management) will be presented. The treatments for implant diseases/complications include: chemotherapeutic agents, laser de-contamination, apically positioned flap with or without implantoplasty, implant surface detoxification, lasers, guided bone regeneration, soft tissue grafts, implant removal as well as re-implantation will be thoroughly discussed.
