    Course Description:

    PERI-IMPLANT DISEASES “ A growing problem in the implant dentistry”

    Implant therapy has increasingly gained recognition in the realm of restorative dentistry, as methods of restoring dentition develop and improve. Thus far, the safety, predictability, and versatility in prosthetic options have made implant therapy a popular option from a single tooth restoration to the full-arch rehabilitation. However, rapidly emerging literature-based evidence regarding peri-implantitis has been casting a shadow on implants more frequently. These diseases have various etiologic evolution and devastating progression, leading to the patients’ discomfort, compromised aesthetics, and eventual implant loss. This continually challenging disease around the dental implants are among us, and the diagnosis, management and prevention protocols were not standardized until 2017 AAP classification of peri-implant diseases shed some light on this clinical reality.

    The complexities of the diseases continue to encounter unclear protocols in management, and treatment with predictable clinical outcome has yet to be established. This seminar will bring you up to speed not only in the literature content, but also the various clinical modalities in this ever-dynamic realm of the peri-implant-attachment apparatus along with the microbiological realities of those failing/failed implants surfaces.

    Learning objectives:

    1. 2017 AAP/EFP Peri-implant diseases classification

    2. Prevalence and risk factors

    3. Microbiological reality of Peri-implant diseases

    4. Introduction of the various management protocols

    5. De-osseointegration: Atraumatic Explantation method

    6. Benefit of the Hermeticism in the “Implant-Transepithelial-Prosthetic” Joint

With humour and enthusiasm, she shares this knowledge with audiences of all healthcare backgrounds.

    In this program, Dr. Sally Safa will delve into the science behind stress and the difference between acute and chronic stress and the effects on the body and brain. The difference between a Stress Response versus a Stress Reaction will be discussed – what they mean, and which one is better. The science backing Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) will be presented including tools taught in MBSR that can help dentists combat day to day stress in both their personal and professional lives.
