Topic: Maxillary Incisor Implants: Esthetic Guidelines & Surgical Challenges
Synopsis: Maxillary incisor implants always present high Esthetic – Restorative – Surgical challenges and risks, particularly marked with immediate implantation & temporization in fresh extraction sockets. While peri-implant tissues and osseous contours are essential considerations, the crown/root axis angulation and shape/contour of the restoration are of critical importance to determine the sagittal angulation of the implant, often dictating whether the restoration is screw-retainedor cement retained. This presentation will discuss application of surgical and esthetic guidelines, based on a simple esthetic reference and peri-implant tissue relationships when an immediate implantation protocol of a maxillary incisor is chosen. Clinical cases will illustrate how to predictably plan variations from the so-called “ideal”, when necessary, without compromising outcomes.

Topic: Error Analysis of Stages Involved In CBCT-Guided Implant Placement with Surgical Guides When Different Printing Technologies Are Used
Synopsis: Digital workflow is transforming the process of implant therapy in dentistry. Additive manufacturing technologies, also known as 3D printing, have been the bridge from the digital plan to the analog workflow. Many different types of 3D printing technologies have evolved and determining what device is most accurate becomes important for the production of devices like surgical guides. The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the accuracy of 3 different types of 3D printers using a digital workflow and determine the step in guided surgery that has the largest effect on implant deviation.

Previously, she attended the University of Texas at Austin, where she majored in Biomedical Engineering with advanced specialization in medical device design and imaging. Currently, she is in her last year of Advanced Prosthodontic Residency at The Ohio State University, where she serves as the Chief Resident. Her main interests include the use of CAD-CAM technologies to manage complex prosthodontic cases and the study of implant connection geometries and its effects on preload.

Topic: Relationship of Implant Screw Joint and Preload Using Torque Angle Control Analysis
Synopsis: Geometries of implant connections have been developed with different mechanical and surface features to promote and improve the clinical success of the implant. The conversion of delivery torque to preload of abutment screws can be affected by these geometries. The surface characteristics can be greatly altered by laboratory processes and affect the friction factor on two interfaces, screw underhead abutment, and abutment-implant. In addition, the geometric design of mating surfaces can also contribute to varied surface area and dynamic interaction in implant-abutment interfaces. Therefore, the same final torque on the abutment screw may fail to result in the same preload due to friction in the interfaces and different connection designs between implants and abutments. The goal of this research is to evaluate the effect of geometric design and surface roughness on torque distribution and preload in implant-abutment screw joint using torque-angle analyses. There is a need to develop a better understanding of the effect of implant abutment connection geometries on the preload as this can contribute clinically to connection stability. Currently, there is limited research that examines the preload as it is measured using torque-angle signatures in dental implant-abutment interfaces.

Topic: The Effect of Surface Treatment on The Adhesive Strength of chairside hard Liners to Dental Polymers Used for The Conventional, Additive, and Subtractive fabrication Of Complete Dentures
Synopsis: Traditionally complete dentures were only fabricated through packing heat-cured acrylic into a metal flask. Nowadays, advancements in CAD-CAM technologies allowed the fabrication of dentures through subtractive or additive techniques. These modalities gained popularity due to their versatility, time efficiency, ease of use, and produces results comparative to formative methods. Additive manufacturing through 3D printers has recently evolved to be an integral part of many dental offices. Hard denture liners have been utilized as a treatment option to improve the fit of dentures due to continuous ridge resorption. They as well been used to improve the outcome of implant dentistry, maxillofacial prosthesis, and many other prosthetic treatments. The increased utilization of additive CAD-CAM technologies in dental clinics requires a thorough understanding of how these materials interact with commercially available hard denture liners. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate and compare the effect of surface treatment on the tensile bond strength of hard denture liners to dental polymers used for conventional, subtractive, and additive manufacture of complete dentures.
