Young ITI Germany, version 2.0: Casting off towards new shores

  Best practice in the promotion of the young generation: the Young ITI Meeting – an event series of the ITI Section Germany – offers its participants young, but experienced lecturers as well as contemporary topics, addressing the expectations and requirements of the young generation. The collegial atmosphere is suitable for an easy exchange between lecturers and participants. The event  takes place every year in changing locations and is open to the public, with special conditions for ITI members. Fresh energy and new speakers Reinventing oneself is definitely no easy task but, from time to time, a necessity. First off: the organizers of the 9th Young ITI Germany meeting managed this feat, resulting in fresh energy and new speakers for this unique event presented by the German Section of the ITI that can be summed up as overall very satisfactory: Many new faces, a new look – it was clear that things had changed. What had not changed, however are the classic Young ITI qualities: communication during and after the presentations, cooperation between colleagues, often heated discussions, the possibility to network and benefit from an exchange of opinions. More than 180 participants made intensive use of this option and experienced an outstanding continuing education event.There is no doubt, the Hamburg meeting represented a milestone for Young ITI – the relaunch of Young ITI version 2.0. The speakers: Dr. Dr. Dr. Thomas Ziebart, (Marburg), Dr. Jochen Tunkel (Bad Oeynhausen), Dr. Anja Zembic (Zurich), PD Dr. Dr. Marcus O. Klein (Dusseldorf), Dr. Ulf Meisel (Nuremberg) “OUR YOUNG ITI FLAGSHIP IS IN FULL SAIL!” (J. KLEINHEINZ) REVIEW OF THE SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM Seamless interdisciplinary cooperation between prosthodontists and surgeons Could any German city other than Hamburg have been better suited as the location for the relaunch? According to the Chair of the German Section, Professor Dr. Dr. Johannes Kleinheinz, this Hanseatic city has always been known for its cosmopolitan and innovative approach. He continued that the aim was not to jettison the successful formula of the Young ITI meetings, but rather to adapt the congress to the expectations and needs of the younger generation of colleagues. The responsibility for carrying out this task belonged to Dr. Ulf Meisel’s planning team, which achieved magnificent results. The organizers of the Hamburg Young ITI meeting focused on seamless interdisciplinary cooperation between prosthodontists and surgeons as the basis for optimally safe, predictable and successful outcomes. The prosthodontic workflow for implants formed the focus of the congress, but active participation in discussion and hot debate – as particular features of the Young ITI – also had their place. Education program: outstanding with its variety and the excellence of its speakers After a Section Germany Study Club Directors meeting on the previous day, the continuing education day could be devoted fully to the Section’s membership, that is not only one of the strongest in terms of numbers, but is also a true asset to the unique global network of the International Team for Implantology – ITI. The recently launched “ITI Implantology curriculum” serves to support this claim and, along with the unique Young ITI format, yet another event will be joining these later this year that represents a first for the ITI: the German Section is launching its Online Symposium on October 23. Autologous transplants, their necessity and alternatives form the core of the discussions led by renowned lecturers. Substantial membership growth Hamburg, in the meantime, provided the stage for an exposition of this enterprising Section’s performance and various activities. This allowed its Chair, Professor Dr. Dr. Kleinheinz, to report on substantial membership growth within the Section as well as on its recent Fellow meeting in Eltville-Reinhartshausen. He focused on the German Section’s continuing education situation. And it was not without pride that Professor Kleinheinz outlined the relaunch of his Section’s continuing education program that, with its variety and the excellence of its speakers, need not shy comparison. QUOTE “There has been a distinct shift from classic print media to web-based online platforms.” Dr. Georg Bach, Communications Officer ITI Section Germany, Freiburg ITI Curriculum and ITI Study Clubs The demand for the curriculum launched in the previous year is now so great that two curricula are being run in parallel and an English version is being planned. A central pillar of the ITI are its Study Clubs that allow Fellows and Members to meet and exchange experiences within a relaxed atmosphere as well as to benefit from the incredible knowledge pool represented by its experts. In Germany, the Munich-based maxillofacial surgeon Professor Dr. Dr. Andreas Schlegel is responsible for the Study Clubs. While his initial years working in this area were marked by fast growth with the establishment of many new Study Clubs, the tempo has slowed considerably, in part, according to Schlegel, “as such a large number of Study Clubs must be nurtured and instilled with life.” A consequence of this rapid development is a massive increase in the number of people within the Section who are able to run these many events and meetings with the necessary professionalism. Schlegel draws a positive conclusion “The German Study Clubs are doing well!” From classic print media to web-based online platforms In his function as Communications Officer, Dr. Georg Bach, reported on the Section’s presence in the media as well as providing an overview of what is coming soon. It should be noted that there has been a distinct shift from classic print media to web-based online platforms. Young ITI Meeting “Our Young ITI flagship is in full sail!” The maxillofacial surgeon and Section Chair Professor Dr. Dr. Johannes Kleinheinz welcomed the more than 180 participants of the 9th Young ITI meeting and together with Dr. Sascha Pieger then presented the ITI Online Academy. The ITI’s web-based educational platform was launched during the last ITI World Symposium in Geneva and has developed both swiftly and positively. In the Asia region in particular, the Online Academy has been accepted as the standard reference work for research and study for everything connected with implant dentistry. The many various possibilities as well as the broad-ranging offering met with the participants’ unqualified approval – for once, in Kleinheinz’ words, it was “the right offering for the right target group”. Implants in medically compromised patients The first presentation was made by Dr. Dr. Dr. Thomas Ziebart – a maxillofacial surgeon from Marburg – who talked about implants in medically compromised patients. Ziebart called for boundary value analysis of patients leading to risk avoidance and reduction. “Recognition of boundaries, that is what we need!” he reiterated. Along with patients taking oral anticoagulants, Ziebart also talked about patients with stents. The first take-home message was: “Bridging with heparin is no longer the state of the art.” In regard to diabetes, Ziebart anticipated double the current number of cases in the next decade. With diabetes, whose side effects include reduced bone formation along with increased bone loss, it is important that the disease be well controlled before implants can be installed. Autoimmune diseases Ziebart further commented on patients suffering from autoimmune diseases whose therapy calls for stringent diagnosis as well as peri-operative treatment with antibiotics. HIV patients benefit from a much better long-term prognosis when treated using antiretroviral therapies, however, higher rates of osteoporosis are typically observed. The success of oral implants is significantly lower with bone physiology disorders (resulting from bisphosphonates or radiation – particularly at 50 Gy or more). Thorough risk analysis must be carried out here and should an implant be under consideration, the insertion technique should be minimally invasive along with the possible use of implants with an activated surface. Implants used in limited oral vestibular space This highly relevant topic was selected by PD Dr. Dr. Marcus O. Klein (Dusseldorf). His show-stopping start: “I cannot take you directly to reduced-diameter implants. First we need to go through the basics!” said the PD, who has his own practice. There followed explanations regarding oral vestibular deficits and rules for insertion that must be strictly observed before Klein shifted to the actual subject of his presentation. He recommended reduced-diameter implants for medically compromised patients as this makes it possible to avoid invasive and stressful therapies, along with the less need for augmentation procedures when reduced-diameter implants are used. A possible side-benefit is increased protection against resorption in the form of a biological buffer. Klein clarified, however, that very high demands are placed on the implant system (ideally conical) and the alloys used. “These small diameter implants must be able to withstand greater stress than standard diameter implants. According to Klein, the use of alloys like Roxolid that show 20% higher fatigue strength can present a good alternative. Prosthetic treatment planning – materials and methods With his presentation Dr. Sascha Pieger (Hamburg) was playing on home territory. Having already proved his affinity for the digital world during his presentation on the Online Academy, he progressed seamlessly by showcasing the options available for digital diagnosis and therapy. Beginning with the intra-oral scan, to digital implant planning, the results of which lead to a drilling template, Pieger proved himself to be a clear fan of virtual CAD/CAM-supported implant dentistry. The broader range of possibilities offered by today’s scanners that have moved from the purely therapeutic tool (mold) through to a diagnostic therapeutic instrument permits the seamless and continuous use of digital processes from first contact with the patient through to insertion of the restoration. This results, according to Pieger, in the perfect implant. Successful soft-tissue management With striking case studies, Dr. Jochen Tunkel (Bad Oeynhausen) managed to explain how important successful soft-tissue management is to the success of augmentation, implant placement and uncovering. Tunkel is not only an oral surgeon but also a periodontologist. “With soft tissue, what you don’t do is far more important than what you do!” From this point of view, immediate insertion that avoids surgical incisions and flaps would be the ideal approach. However, according to Tunkel, flapless surgery is not the universal solution. “In addition, it always fails when there is too little bone to place an implant.” He then went on to define the basics of incisions for augmentation and placement of implants. The speaker’s explanations were supported by well documented case studies – among them one on tunnel technique according to Khoury. Individualized abutments, how they should be used and their necessity Following a mega trend of recent years, Dr. Ulf Meisel (Nuremberg) analyzed individualized abutments and defined how they should be used and their necessity. Meisel was also responsible for putting together the scientific program of the 9th Young ITI meeting. Meisel stated clearly “In choosing the right abutment, one is simply reproducing the decision that was taken when planning the positioning of the implant!” The areas influenced by an individualized abutment are the suprastructure, the emergence profile, the abutment-crown interface, the sub-gingival area and finally the intra-implant space. Based on his own analyses as well as the analysis of the relevant literature, Meisel called for the exclusive use of original abutments from the respective manufacturer. Cemented versus screwed reconstructions on implants At a time when cement-associated peri-implantitis is much discussed, this was the “hot” topic selected by Dr. Anja Zembic (Zurich) for her contribution to the scientific program. At the very beginning of her presentation, the Swiss lecturer stated “Regardless of the approach you use to retain the implant, it is primarily a question of implant positioning!” If the implant is positioned too far buccally, screw retention is not possible as the screw access holes would impinge on the esthetic area. Presenting the advantages and disadvantages of both procedures took up a sunstantial proportion of Zembic’ presentation. Special attention was paid to the dangers of cementitis – an infection caused by cement residues, which is attributed with a considerable influence on the generation of peri-implant lesions. However, after five years the survival rate values for cemented crowns were actually higher than for the screw option. For the implants themselves, the same success rates were attributed to both retention methods. However, cement-retained crowns come off significantly better than screw-retained crowns in terms of technical complications; they are also more advantageous in terms of cost. When looking at biologic complications for both crowns and bridges, however, the picture is reversed. The highest rates of risk are found with cement reconstructions “and your patients need to know this!” says Zembic. Opportunities and benefits of recall Oral surgeon Dr. Anne Bauersachs (Munich) talked about the opportunities and benefits of recall appointments and assigned great importance to this tool. Our colleague, who spent many years at the University of Erlangen, then worked in Professor Schlegel’s practice before establishing her own practice, made a very impressive connection between an increase in complications and failure by the patient to attend aftercare appointments. “Recall appointments are for more than just a check-up, recall appointments are there to maintain and even restore oral structures” said Bauersachs. The check-up/maintenance/restoration triad is extremely important in implant dentistry, on the one hand because of the many attendant risk factors that can influence the long-term success of implant treatment, and on the other because of the structural and anatomic factors that enable the development of peri-implant lesions. Bauersachs finished off her presentation with a series of practical tips for implementing a recall system in practices dealing with dental implants. Professor Dr. Dr. Johannes Kleinheinz QUOTE “The aim is to adapt the congress to the expectations and needs of the younger generation of colleagues” Professor Dr. Dr. Johannes Kleinheinz, Chairman of the German ITI Section A classic: the Young ITI debate! The debate on a “hot” topic between acknowledged experts – traditionally placed at the end of a Young ITI meeting – is a time-honored item on the event agenda. The attraction of these heated and rather unconventional discussions has been recognized by many other event organizers and it has been widely copied, now to be found at many dental congresses. In Hamburg, the structure for the debate was defined by discussion of cases with the participation of Dr. Anjy Zembic, Dr. Sascha Pieger, Dr. Jochen Tunkel and – representing the founding team of Young ITI presenters – Professor Dr. Dr. Andreas Schlegel. At the end of the day, the organizers of the Young ITI meeting were able to say with a strong degree of satisfaction: Young ITI Version 2.0 is not just up, it is also running! https://www.iti.org/sites/germany The post Young ITI Germany, version 2.0: Casting off towards new shores appeared first on STARGET COM.

Straumann Connections 3/16: “Lifetime Plus Guarantee” for Straumann® Roxolid® implants

  Roxolid® has brought a new level of confidence to implant dentistry that enables Straumann to offer an industry leading guarantee. In this issue of “Straumann Connections”, Frank Hemm, Executive Vice President and Head of Customer Solutions & Education at Straumann, explains why Straumann has taken this decision and what it means for surgeons and patients. Background Roxolid® – the dental implant material for superior strength and more indications Roxolid® from Straumann (introduced 2009) has been specifically designed for use in dental implantology. It is a unique implant material – a metal alloy composed of ~15 % zirconium and ~ 85 % titanium – combining excellent osseointegrative properties with high mechanical strength. Roxolid® leads to increased mechanical resistance [R1] and up to 21 % higher fatigue strength compared to titanium implants [R2]. This allows dental professionals to use reduced diameter implants to preserve bone and reduce the number of invasive grafting procedures [R3]. In combination with Straumann’s unique SLActive® surface, Roxolid® implants offer increased predictability even in challenging protocols [R4-10], broader treatment possibilities even for patients with compromised health [R11-17] as well as safer and reduced treatment times (from 6 – 8 weeks down to 3 – 4 weeks) in all indications [R18].

Florian Thieringer: Restoration of a lateral maxillar incisor, missing due to aplasia (Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant Ø 3,3 mm)

  A 22-year old female patient suffered aplasia of both lateral maxillar incisors. After orthodontic treatment, the local dentist filled the intermediate spaces in regions 12 and 22 with two Implants. The patient came to our clinic with advanced peri-implantitis on the implant in region 22 (Figs. 1, 2). An impression was taken of the maxilla and mandible. Then a removable single tooth clamp temporary prosthesis was fabricated pre-operatively, supported occlusally on the neighbouring teeth. This was to fill the space that arose after explantation of the implant. PRODUCT INFORMATION BY THE MANUFACTURER The Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant is the result of more than 9 years of research and development. It has a natural looking ivory color, a feature that makes the implant look more like a natural tooth and supports the clinician in cases of thin gingiva biotype or soft tissue recession. Its monotype design is based on features of the Straumann® Soft Tissue Level Standard Plus and Straumann® Bone Level Implants. According to a survey (data on file), patients would prefer tooth-colored implants, if given the choice between ceramic and metal implants. With the Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant, clinicians can offer their patients a natural and highly esthetic solution, benefitting from favorable soft tissue attachment around zirconia implants. MORE? All about the STRAUMANN® PURE CERAMIC IMPLANT on STARGET at a glance. Click here TESTIMONIAL BY DR. FLORIAN THIERINGER This one-piece 3.3 mm diameter-reduced Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant is what we have been waiting for. The 3.3 mm implant extends the therapeutic possibilities, particularly in situations where the diameter of the 4.1 mm ceramic implant is too wide or in the esthetically demanding region of the anterior teeth. This exhibits the same outstanding properties as the 4.1 mm Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant with respect to surface and biocompatibility. The micro- and macro-rough surface of the ZLA® has been subjected to experimental and clinical tests and guarantees reliable osseous ingrowth, as with the Straumann Titanium implants with SLA® surface. In addition, the new 3.3 mm ceramic implant exhibits outstanding fracture strength even at the lower diameter. Thus it is an ideal tooth-coloured implant for reliable and esthetic care when space is limited. PICTURE DOCUMENTATION Fig. 1 thieringer01 Fig. 2 thieringer02 Fig. 3 thieringer03 Fig. 4 thieringer04 Fig. 5 thieringer05 Fig. 6 thieringer06 Fig. 7 thieringer07 Fig. 8 thieringer08 Fig. 9 thieringer09 SURGICAL PROCEDURE The implant in region 22 was explanted and the tissue sections modified by inflammation were carefully curetted. As suggested by the X-rays, the operation found a significant multiwalled bone defect (Figs. 2, 3). Eight weeks after explantation, the defect region was augmented with an autologous bone block from the mandibular angle as well as bone substitute material (botiss cerabone®) and a collagen membrane (botiss Jason® membrane). Six months after bone augmentation, a one-piece diameter-reduced ceramic implant was implanted (diameter: 3.3/length: 10 mm). Because of the narrowness of the mesio-distal spaces in region 22, only a diameter-reduced implant could be used here. On the buccal side, autologous bone chips from the zygmomatic bone region were harvested (Figs. 4, 5). The healing process was normal (Fig. 6). The implant was exposed to the oral cavity and healed without inflammation under the protection of the pre-­operatively fabricated temporary clamp prosthesis. PROSTHETIC PROCEDURE To form the gingival soft tissue, a single temporary tooth restoration was fabricated from composite on a Straumann temporary coping. Optimal soft tissue formation was then ensured using a CAD long-term temporary restoration (Fig. 7). After approx. 16 weeks, the final impression was taken for a full ceramic crown (Fig. 8). The postoperative X-ray shows the correction positioning of the implant in the maxilla bone (Fig. 9) CONCLUSION It was possible to treat the highly esthetically challenging situation with limited space and significant bone deficit well using a gradual treatment concept. The choice of a reduced-diameter 3.3 mm Straumann one-piece ceramic implant with macro- and micro-rough surface and optimal biocompatibility ensured not only treatment success but also met the desire of the patient for a tooth-colored, completely metal-free solution, with a dark titanium implant showing through the gingiva on the opposite side. The measures for GBR were consistent with the usual approach for titanium implants. The treatment described in this article was performed with substantial contributions from Dr. Michael Gahlert, Munich (Germany) and Dr. Stefan Röhling, Basel (Switzerland).
