Implant dentistry has evolved over the past 20 years, from the treatment of last resort to the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. The question remains however, what steps need to be taken to achieve the goal of an ideal restoration? The course will discuss the differences between the myriad of bone grafting materials available. Understand the indications for bone grafting. See how using grafting material can enhance the final restorative result. Discuss the role of PRP, BMP and other growth factors.

FR342 - Medical Update for Dentistry: From Bisphosphonates to Blood Thinners
Time: 1 - 4 PM
Room: Omni,
Type: General    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

Practitioners must deal with ever expanding arrays of patients with medical issues as the population is aging. When practitioners think they understand things, the rules are changed. BRONJ (bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw) is now MRONJ (medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw). Total joint replacement patients no longer need premedication. Patients on Coumadin and other blood thinners do not always need to stop medications prior to dental treatment. The course will discuss these issues and help to understand the science behind the current management protocols.
