POSTPONED - 2020 Delta Dental Day: Implant Treatment Planning & Oral Manifestations of Systemic Disease

UCSF Parnassus Campus - HSW300

Dr. Setia will present evidence-based, differential implant treatment planning that will address the common concerns of both clinicians and patients. He will discuss various elements involved in creating an esthetic dentition and will provide material based on clinical cases, progressing from simple to more complex. Dr. Setia will also discuss how to plan implant surgery, execute it from a restorative standpoint, and will review newer technologies in the digital implant work flow.

Dr. Pogrel will discuss current thoughts with regards to bisphosphonates, but even more with regards to some of the newer medications such as denosumab. A variety of techniques including drug holiday, hyperbaric oxygen, pentoxifylline, and tocoferol amongst others will be presented. He will also discuss the issue of patients with preexisting implants that are functioning successfully who are then placed on these medications. Occasionally, the dentist is the first person to diagnosis a serious general medical condition because of something they see in the oral cavity.
