Monday Session, 10:15–11:45 a.m.
Program Track: Regeneration/Tissue Engineering
Moderators: Henry H. Takei and Teppei Tsukiyama
Speakers: Eiji Funakoshi and Tomohiro Ishikawa
This presentation will address challenges with the treatment modality for vertical osseous defects and present long-term regenerative therapy and results comparing two methods: Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) and cases utilizing Emdogain (EMD). The biologic understanding and clinical application of these methods will allow the clinician to save many teeth which may have been considered hopeless and extracted. This course will also cover case studies to demonstrate the benefits and limitations of recombinant human plateletderived growth factor-BB (rh-PDGF) when used to treat intrabony defects in advanced cases.
• Explain the advantage and disadvantage of two regenerative procedures.
• Present the use of GTR and EMD with clinical cases and demonstrate surgical techniques.
• Demonstrate how to retain and maintain teeth which were diagnosed as questionable and/or poor prognosis with regenerative therapy.
• Introduce the necessary techniques for successful regeneration of bone in deep intrabony defects.
• Recognize the influence of technical proficiency to obtain an excellent final outcome.
• Assess the potential outcome of rh-PDGF in advanced cases of deep intrabony defects and vertical ridge augmentation.
