Restitutio ad Integrum and Mini Invasiveness in Dental Surgery

High Rises with side access; xenografts; wild extractions of healthy elements and regeneration techniques of soft and hard tissues showing a morbidity that can be improved by 50%, those surgical methods are over. Just to give an example, in 2023 I no longer consider a simple monoimplant a biologically acceptable solution if I can perform e reimplantation or a dental autotransplantation. Nowadays we have technologies and materials enabling us to guarantee above all therapies coming as close as possible to a real restitutio ad integrum and not, in the best-case scenario, to a scar mixed up with a foreign body. TSOOR and DOOR techniques; Root Membrane Reimplantation (RMR) and Root Membrane Transplantation (RMT) Reimplantations and Dental Transpositions; Post-extraction immediate load implants; Erbium Laser; Magnetic Mallet; Tooth Transformer; new heterologous grafting materials able to promote osteoinduction. This is the real Dental Surgery in 2023.

Real causes of peri-implantitis – prevention and eradication in 100% of cases

As of today, no single scientific study pinpointed a particular class of bacteria being responsible for the peri-implantitis. How come? Because anyone, whether or not he is a professional thief, can get in the house if we leave the door open. In one hour, I will show you countless of peri-implantitis cases in which the cause is always and exclusively of a mechanical nature affecting the efficiency of the junctional epithelium. After seeing this simple presentation, you will be able to avoid peri-implantitis in 100% of your implants, but mostly you will be able to treat ongoing peri-implantitis definitely stopping the progression, and in some cases also allowing a complete regeneration of the lost bone.

HIDDEN WORK – all you are missing in the patients’ mouth

We live in a historical moment where Dental Marketing is trendy. There is a belief that the amount of work in a dental practice is directly proportional to economic/informative parameters (competitive price, website of the practice, posts on social networks sometimes paid for and so forth). A plethora of self-appointed personalities, also non-medical, are ready to teach us all the TRICKS to increase first visits; turnover; performed implants, etc. What do I think of all this? Lack of respect for patients and the medical profession! I will show that there is a part of necessary work to be carried out in the mouths of our patients, run by less than 2% of the practices. The famous HIDDEN WORK. Simply by starting to treat conditions inside the mouth such as: atypical swallowing, imperative restoration of the MAGNIFICENT 24, avulsion of the third molars also erupted and much more, you can offer a tremendously effective service to people and increase your current volume of work by 50%. The road getting you to treat these problems requires broadening the vision of how biology works, learning biology concepts unfortunately not officially taught and mastering techniques and equipment to solve these issues. Alternatives? Sign up for a marketing course!

Know swallowing or it will destroy your work

Swallowing, after breathing, is the second most important vital function of our body. We start swallowing from our third month of life in uterus until physical death. That involves the use of one third of the sensitive and motor areas of the cerebral cortex, all that to swallow some saliva? Absolutely not! Scientific studies proved how correct swallowing guards against the atrophy of the hippocampus preventing conditions such as senile dementia and Alzheimer’s. More specifically I will show how swallowing impacts all your works inside a mouth starting from Orthodontics, Endodontics and Periodontology and ending with Prosthesis and Gnathology. I will show how many treatment failures are caused by ignoring correct swallowing at a diagnostic stage and how to be able to identify and treat this possibility before starting any therapy.

What is the neurological tooth? What is Applied Kinesiology in dental diagnosis? Here is why I extract the wisdom tooth in 100% of cases

In 1992 I published on “MODERN DENTIST” an article entitled “THE NEUROLOGICAL TOOTH 2 CASE STUDIES”, where I demonstrated how there is a clinical correlation between individual districts of the dental arches and the functioning of the circuit controlling the tone of some specific body muscles distant from the mouth, through the activity of the gamma motor neuron. The observation of these links was possible thanks to the use of a powerful diagnostic method called Applied Kinesiology. Today the topic is back in fashion as some sports doctor brought it back to the fore (see Marcel Jacob’s extraction of the lower wisdom tooth) to improve sports performance of professional athletes. Actually, they just cleared concepts dating back to 1970, that nobody ever dealt with. I will show a report and will carry out some tests on the people in the room, demonstrating how there is a clear and clinically provable correlation that anyone will be able to witness, between the lower Eighth and the ileo-psoas homolateral muscle, which can cause important musculoskeletal pathologies in the patient if not evaluated by the Dentist. That is why, since 1992, I extract the wisdom tooth in 100% of the cases.

The sunset of the Globe

Further to 6 years of careful personal research and multiple long-distance optical observations to document the shape of the Earth, I came to the conclusion that what they taught us in school about the shape of the planet must be revised. A sphere with an average radius of 6371 kms has an 8 inches per square mile curvature that can be calculated using trigonometry. Making a simple calculation, beyond 1000 kms the Earth has a curvature of roughly 80 kms. How is it possible then to see 5 kms tall Mont Blanc from Ireland at a distance of more than 1100 kms? I will illustrate that and dozens of other unsolved issues in over two hours of report that will no longer make you swear that the Earth is a globe. What’s that you say? There are NASA photographs to prove it? Look at the videos I will bring to the presentation regarding the reliability of NASA’s sources and then we will talk about it. As of today, I really believe that the shape of the Earth can be described as a globe because of one single reason: PRAISE THE ROCKET 😊

The Blink – Emotional diagnosis in Oral Medicine

IIn the blink of an eye the “human mind” detects countless of information, many of which are stored with no need for them to reach the threshold of consciousness. The Diagnosis “Dia-Gnosis” is a key process in the daily clinical practice, linking basic “knowledge” to the cognitive mechanisms as well as to those aimed at the evocation of memory, through a path involving different levels of conscience. We will travel together through those mechanisms leading us to formulate our diagnosis, entering a dimension allowing maximum efficiency of the cognitive system, the Emotional Diagnosis.

Orthodontics mini-screws: Roadmap and instructions for use

In the past, the condition of “total orthodontic anchoring” could only be provided by ankylosed dentition or implants for implant-prosthesis. The introduction of mini-screws has revolutionized the traditional concepts of orthodontic biomechanics. At first, they were roughly used as an application point of orthodontic forces not involving other teeth: in time the devices became more and more efficient and specific; nowadays Direct and Indirect Tads are available, providing professionals with a slightly different instrument time after time, suitable for each different clinical case based on the diagnostic assessment. This recent classification shows that: Indirect Tads are screws used to fix lab created devices to the anterior palate, their use complements an orthodontic-gnathological treatment per se, and they represent the gold standard in the skeletal expansion of the subject at the end of the growth or the protraction “en masse” of the upper dentition due to space closing in the partial agenesia or edentulous. They always require CONE BEAM, virtual planning insertion and the use of a template, therefore biological and economic price is higher than that for Direct Tads, but for selected clinical conditions they seem to be preferable in the cost-benefit ratio. Direct Tads, divided into alveolar and extra-alveolar are dedicated to both arches, they are inserted by the operator himself demanding time and effort or sometimes, upon request, using a specially devised and patented surgical guide (NoFear Guide). They are an efficient, ergonomic and less expensive approach where an anchoring reinforcement is required as part of a typical orthodontic treatment with fixed or aligners, while representing the tool of choice for canine and molar disinclusion, uprighting and intrusion of over-erupted teeth in interdisciplinary cases. We are certain that, as far as Direct Tads are concerned, a simple but properly taught training course will provide the professional with the instruments to easily use the system and thus be able to also give his patient the most appropriate treatment, based on the different clinical conditions.

3D printing in the dental practice. limits and opportunities between prosthesis, guided surgery and gnathology.

3D printing is greatly influencing the dental field. Labs have swiftly seized the opportunities offered by rapid prototyping and they put them to the service of production flows. Meanwhile, what is going on in the practices? What are the printable artifacts? Utilizing which technologies? Which timing? Which results?
We will take a trip in the 3D printing inside the dental practice, and we will observe step by step what happens before, during and after the additive prototyping of a temporary tooth, a surgical template, a bitesplint, up to a repositioning plaque. Together we will try and understand whether these technologies can represent an opportunity to manage clinical workflows in a different way and what are the actual limits.

New Ideas in Dental Bone Regeneration: Immune modulation, upregulated host regeneration of bone and osteoinductive next-generation synthetics, a clinical and scientific view.

With over 23 years and 8,000 grafts using only synthetic particulate graft materials,the speaker has a vast experience both clinically and in research.

Recent research from the wider medical community on Calcium Phosphates offers a new explanation showing how these materials up-regulate host bone regeneration with their osteo-inductive potential.

When considered in combination with a new strand of research into osteoimmunology in dental implantology gives a much clearer understanding of the host response to foreign body placement, healing and the reason why some graft materials appear to work more quickly than others.

During this seminar, the Doctor Fairbairn, will examine this research, including his own recent papers, to show the concept of true host bone regeneration and the importance of using resorbable materials, due to the inherent risks of residual graft remaining in the site long-term.

These concepts will be demonstrated with clinical cases from the speakers’ own experience, examining the surgical protocols he has developed to optimize outcomes.  Cases will include routine bony defects, large-scale full-arch regeneration, socket grafts, sinus augmentations, perio defects, peri-implantitis and apicectomies and cyst site regeneration.  The Doctor Fairbairn, will demonstrate a variety of delayed and immediate placements with long-term follow-ups, up to 9 years.

The value of full graft resorption and healthy host bone will be discussed along with longer term case assessment to show these benefits.
