Version 2

An Invitation from Dr. Fred Slete

Symposium Chairman

On behalf of Versah®, I’d like to invite you to the first Osseodensification World Symposium. The Symposium’s theme will be Optimize the Site – Optimize the Outcome. Site optimization is the future of implant dentistry and applies to every aspect of our practice.

World renowned experts will share with you in-depth discussions about; Osseodensification – The Evidence, Site Optimization both surgically and restoratively, and the introduction of the Universal Guided Surgery with one-day restoration. The symposium will also include hands-on courses and a golf outing.

Please join us for a weekend full of innovative ideas and fun.

Pre-Symposium HANDS-ON Courses

8:00am-12:00pm

Osseodensification: Sub-Crestal Sinus Augmentation
Ziv Mavor, DMD & Salah Huwais, DDS

Limited to the first 30 participants – SOLD OUT

8:00am-1:00pm

Osseodensification: Comprehensive Clinical Application
Michael A. Pikos, DDS

This hands on workshop will focus on the clinical application of osseodensification technology as it pertains to extraction site preparation for immediate implant placement, alveolar ridge expansion with implant placement, and sinus grafting with simultaneous implant placement (crestal and lateral approach). There will be a PowerPoint presentation including use of HD videos along with direct hands-on to include models and pig jaws.

Limited to the first 30 participantsSOLD OUT

8:00am-1:00pm

Soft Tissue Optimization: Tools and Procedures
Howard Gluckman, BDS, MCHD 

Pouch Technique– The Pouch Technique is a soft tissue CTE technique that allows us to increase the thickness of the tissue. This technique can be used for immediate implant placement or even as a soft tissue graft for a pontic site.

Apical Repositioned Flap– The apically repositioned flap is one of the most important flaps available to both increase the tissue thickness and height as well as expand the band of attached gingiva. This hands-on will show you how to successfully split flaps and reposition this using a microsurgical technique to improve your soft tissue around implants.

The Vestibuloplasty with a free gingival graft is a critical technique to master if you are going to place implants. Attached gingiva is critical to the long term health of the implants and this is one of the few techniques possible to effectively do this.

Limited to the first 22 participants – SOLD OUT

2:00pm-6:00pm

Osseodensification: Optimize the Site—Optimize the Outcome.
Salah Huwais, DDS

Objectives:

  • Learn and practice the clinical versatility of Osseodensification, Sub-Crestal Sinus Lift, Ridge Expansion, Immediate Implant Placement with OD, and Guided Expansion Graft.
  • How we can plastically expand bone and enhance its strength in a controlled method.
  • Why bone preservation may improve its structural strength and healing.
  • The effect of Osseodensification on implant total stability development for early and immediate loading.

*Will use actual bone specimen and simulating model
