Ozone Dentistry: Intro to a "New" Therapy Technology and Its Utilization in an Integrative Practice (2 CE Credits)
Why Ozone? There are connections between gum disease and systemic disease, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, Osteoporosis, pregnancy complications, respiratory disease, upper airway disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pancreatic, colon and prostate cancers, digestive disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, sleep apnea and Xerostomia. Oxygen/Ozone therapy inactivates many disease bacteria, viruses and fungi. The methods of application are: injection, insuffation, inhalation, ingestion and transdermal. This course will address the following: How do we use Ozone Therapy?; How can it be integrated into most clinical dentistry?; How does it work to enhance treatment outcomes?; What is Ozone therapy used for in dentistry? and How can it be created in the office (instrumentation)?

Dental Implant Complications and Management of Peri-Implant Bone Loss (4 CE Credits)

The use of dental implants as an option for restoring partially and fully edentulous patients has revolutionized dental treatment.  High survival rates reported for single and multiple missing teeth replacements has validated the use of implant supported restorations and has significantly improve the quality of life for many patients.

Implant successes been defined as an implant retained restoration free of complication. Current research indicates only 61% of patients at 5 years with implant supported fixed partial dentures and 50% of patients after 10 years with combined tooth and implant partial dentures reported no complication.  It is clear that implant complications increase with the length of time an implant supported restoration is in place, so as clinicians we need to be increasingly more alert to these issues that lead to complication whether they are technical complication associated with the prosthesis or infection associated with the dental implants.

Course objectives:

  • Identify the prevalence of dental implant complication
  • Factors that influence implant complication
  • How can we avoid such complications or can wait?
  • Management of technical complications.
  • Management of biologic complications

Date/Time:          June 2, 2017                       8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Fee:                     $125 MSDA Members         $225 Non Members 
Instructor:            Dr. Karl Zeren
Location:             MSDA Classroom, Columbia, MD
Refreshments:     Breakfast will be served. 


Immediate Full Arch Implant Rehabilitation - Prosthodontic, Surgical and Laboratory Principles (Part 2, from April 28th) (4 CE Credits)
The concept of surgical placement of multiple dental implants at various angles is based on the idea of optimizing the patient’s available bone, while gaining more favorable distribution within the arch. Technology improvements can dramatically cut the time and number of visits for a complex implant case while greatly improving the precision of the final result. This simple principle has given back hope to numerous patients that otherwise would have to undergo additional bone grafting procedures with the associated additional cost, longer treatment times and the use of removable dental prostheses.

This lecture will expand on treatment options for state-of-the-art, implant-based fixed prosthetic dentistry for complete arch indications, providing a practical guide to the rehabilitation of the edentulous arch. Discussions will address a variety of treatment concepts and material options, mainly focusing on the full arch rehabilitation protocols and immediate function.

At the completion of this lecture; the participant will have gained insights regarding: How to identify appropriate candidates for immediate Full Arch implant placement for 'Same Day Solutions” for surgical challenges and prosthetic options for temporization, and how to simplify and shorten treatment times. This lecture is intended for BOTH the surgical and restorative dentist.
