Saturday Session, 8 a.m.–noon
Program Track: Regeneration/Tissue Engineering
Moderators: Pamela K. McClain and Mariano Sanz
Speakers: Daniel Buser, Sonia Leziy, Marc Nevins, and Mariano Sanz
This session will explore the current concepts and alternatives on hard and soft tissue regeneration both around teeth and dental implants. Speakers will provide the clinical guidelines associated with current concepts and alternatives in soft and hard tissue regeneration. In addition, this session will also include discussion of using soft tissue substitutes and xenogeneic scaffolds to improve the outcomes of the different interventions and to diminish patient morbidity.
• Assess the current concepts in soft tissue regeneration around teeth and dental implants.
• Identify techniques that improve periodontal regeneration.
• Explore the use of scaffolds and barrier membranes to improve regenerative outcomes associated with implant therapy.
• Review the clinical guidelines associated with hard and soft tissue regeneration around teeth and implants.
