11:00-12:30 Strategies, Tactics and techniques to create optimal implant sites - Part 2

  • Dr. Ziv Simon, USA


  • Confidence at the tip of your drill

  • Prof. Adi Lorean, Israel
  • 25 million implants are placed annually, and this number is expected to double by 2021.
    According to ACP, there are 36 million edentulous persons in the USA alone, and this number is expected to increase dramatically in the upcoming future.
    Looking at this forecast on the one hand and the increase in demand for dental implant based solutions on the other hand requires not only high-end products, but also safer and more accurate procedures.

    In the last years, only a few technological improvements were developed and oriented towards patient safety and surgical accuracy.
    Digital planning and navigation devices are gaining popularity and are changing the way implant surgeries are performed, but they require a lengthy preparation process, involve a large team and add significant cost to the procedure.
    With pride and excitement, Prof. Lorean will present a breakthrough technology, that will change and add a new dimension to implantologists all over the world, regardless of their proficiency level, specialty and implant type.
    The system, which was originally developed for oil search, was later introduced and implemented as a “Dynamic Surgical Guidance” tool for spine surgery, and now is adopted as a tool for use in dental implantology and maxillofacial surgery.
    This tool ensures accurate and precise surgical procedures, helping all dentists reach excellence in implant positioning, while ensuring safer procedures.
    The tool introduces a novel yet another concept into implant dentistry: hear what you cannot see.

13:30-14:45 Lunch Break


  • Maintaining peri-implant health – How to make your implants last Longer?

  • Prof. Liran Levin, Canada
  • In recent years, the use of dental implants is becoming a common practice and peri-implant diseases are more frequently evident. Apparently, as time goes by and also as implied from the available literature, more and more cases of peri-implant disease are being diagnosed by dentists.
    The reported prevalence in the literature reaches almost 30% to 50% of implant patients.
    This means that one out of two or three of our implant patients might present with peri-implant disease at some point.
    This is also an important aspect of informed consent for our patients.
    Another troubling issue with regards to peri-implant diseases is the lack of appropriate, well-documented gold-standard treatment, specifically for peri-implantitis.
    There are many suggested treatment options described in case reports and case series in the literature; none of them seems to provide a predictable long-term resolution of the disease.
    In order to prevent and treat peri-implant diseases, there is a need to understand the nature of the disease and the risk factors.
    This lecture will focus on causes and risk factors for peri-implant diseases, ways to prevent its occurrence, as well as the currently available treatment options for peri-implantitis.
    Preventive measures as well as treatment planning dilemmas will be discussed as well.

16:15-16:45 Coffee & Posters Presentation


  • Neural Therapy and its Effect on bone cells

  • Dr. Ivan Lindo, Colombia
  • Neuro-Focal Dentistry in Implantology will be presented, and why it will rely on alternative medicines in cases of bone stimulation such as neural therapy with procaine and its biological principle.
    Consideration will also be given to the action of Homeopathy and Homotoxicology.
    Resistance test through Kenesiology.

Saturday March 17th

06:30-07:30 Morning Run with Adin Team


  • Management of soft tissue problems around implants: Functional and Esthetic aspects

  • Prof. Ates Parlar, Turkey
  • The success of dental implant therapy is no longer based only on functional osseointegration.
    Patients expect not only the ability to function long term with their restored implants but also to have a reasonable esthetic result.
    An esthetic implant prosthesis is defined as one that is in harmony with the perioral structures of the patient.
    The restoration, itself, should imitate the natural appearance of the missing dental unit(s) in color, form, texture, size, and optical properties.
    Mucosa is the superficial component of the peri-implant tissues.
    It functions as a protective envelope for the underlying tissues.
    Besides this function, the appearance of the peri-implant mucosa is important for oral-dental esthetics.
    The esthetics of peri-implant tissues, including health, height, volume, color, and contours, must be in harmony with the ones of the surrounding dentition.
    Changes in health, shape, color and size of the mucosa may jeopardize esthetics and function.
    In some cases of implants placed in esthetic areas of the mouth, conditions develop after implant placement where the implant restoration is no longer pleasing in appearance.
    In those cases, the important clinical question is, whether or not a soft tissue procedure can restore the esthetic outcome of the restoration.
    Different soft tissue augmentation procedures are available in terms of increasing the width of peri-implant keratin¬ized mucosa, and gain in soft tissue volume around implants.
    Gingival grafts and connective tissue grafts are still the gold standard for creating and/or improving the soft tissue around implants.
    The purpose of this lecture is, therefore, to address the importance of keratinized tissue around dental implants as well as present classical and novel surgical techniques that are used to enhance the biology and esthetics around dental implants.

11:00-11:30 Coffee & Posters Presentation


  • Scan your way to Digital Dentistry

  • Dr. Bibiana Sanches, Colombia
  • Digital intra-oral scanners: A game changer in Dentistry

  • Dr. Nachum Samet, Israel
  • Intra-oral scanners were developed as a means to replace currently used impression techniques.
    However, in fact, these devices have multiple additional benefits which can be gained by utilizing them daily.
    The presentation will include clinical cases and will discuss other uses of intra-oral scanners as means to completely change traditional dentistry.

13:00-14:30 Lunch Break


  • Bone regeneration and aesthetic management in the anterior area with grafts with P.R.P, P.R.F

  • Dr. Camilo Perez, Colombia
    Tissue regeneration and bone regeneration is the reproduction or reconstitution of a lost or damaged part of the periodontium to restore its architecture and function, treatments that employ autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) is mimicked by the events that happen during the physiological process of wound healing due to the release of various growth factors.
    To be autologous, the safety of the procedure is high and the amount required is obtained from the patient's own blood.
    The PRP is a concentrate of platelets and growth factors that includes: the transforming factor beta (TGF-b), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), among others, the empowerment of healing mechanism induced by supra-physiological concentrations of autologous platelet in damaged tissue or surgical area has been demonstrated is basic and clinical studies.
    Due to the high concentration and release of these factors, PRP can potentially increase the recruitment and proliferation of stem cells and endothelial cells.
    Promoting platelet aggregation and the release of factors with chemotactic and mitogenic properties making it more predictable bone and gingival architecture stabilizing long-term treatments with Adin.


  • 1) Dentist-Lab communication: tips and tricks

  • 2) Guided Smile-A new surgical implant guide technique for immediate loading utilizing Adin implants and restorative components

  • David Kochberg R.D.T. Canada
  • GuidedSMILE CHROME, a patented sequential pin system, is used in immediate load full mouth reconstructions.
    Our protocol completes full mouth reconstructions in just 2 hours or even less.
    For both fully guided and non-guided, it only takes 15 minutes for a prosthetic conversion even for dentate patients.
    The sequential bone reduction protocol for GuidedSMILE is based on the patient’s dentition.
    It is recognized as the most accurate one in the industry.
    We utilize the patient’s neuromuscular setup for our treatment planned cases.
    We achieve this with our patented digital face bow, using a regular dental camera 2d photo and transforms it to a 3D work up, adding a CT scan.
    To increase acceptance for patient treatment plan, we also provide both the doctor and the patient with up to three actual simulations to show them what we can deliver, using only the 2D camera photo.
    We provide an optimal set up based on the aesthetic demands of the patient, transition zone requirements, intra oral occlussal space, and proper lip support.
    We also utilize our proprietary GuidedSMILE NanoCeramic that could work well for long term temporary prosthetic indication without any breakage.
