The LANAP® protocol is on the map. We are True Regeneration™. Learn why at the AAP’s 105th Annual Meeting.

Join us at our Corporate Forum, gain invaluable insight at our mainstage presentation, or visit Exhibit 511 from November 2-5, 2019 to learn more about the LANAP and LAPIP protocols and how you can make a difference in your patients’ lives. McCormick Place – Exhibit 511

MDT is once again sponsoring four corporate forum presentations. This year, John Stella, DDS, FACS, will speak on the incidence, etiology and treatment of dental implantitis. Sathish G. Palayam, DDS, will present 33 retrospective cases estimating the percent efficacy of treatment with a pulsed 1064nm laser. Meanwhile, Allen Farber, DDS, will demonstrate how the treatment of periodontitis and peri-implantitis have evolved to be more efficient and satisfactory for patients. Finally, Jon B. Suzuki, DDS, PhD, MBA, US GOV, will highlight surgical and laser therapies, with an emphasis on the LAPIP protocol. Scroll down for presentation abstracts and learning objectives.

Session 1 – 1:00 – 1:45 PM 
Dental Implantitis: Incidence, Etiology, Treatment using Perio Laser

John Paul Stella, DDS, FACS

This presentation will focus on the incidence and etiology of dental implantitis, as well as recent strides made in treatment using the PerioLase MVP-7. Correctly identifying the causes of dental implantitis enables clinicians to reduce the potential for disease. Perio laser treatment will predictably improve the immediate and long-term results.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the occurrence and causes of dental implantitis.
  2. Be able to recall the 7 (C’s) of dental implantitis.
  3. Discover the advantages to recent strides using specific laser treatment in predictably treating dental implantitis.

Session 2 – 2:00 – 2:45 PM
Pulsed 1064nm Treatment for Temporomandibular Disorders
Sathish G. Palayam, DDS

33 retrospective cases were examined to develop a prospective protocol for data collection and to estimate the percent efficacy of treatment with a pulsed 1064nm laser. Several criteria, including patient pain and range of motion, are used to measure success.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn the differences between pulsed 1064nm treatment capabilities and other wavelengths.
  2. See radiographic results of pulsed 1064nm treatment firsthand.
  3. Analyze criteria for measuring success using pulsed 1064m laser.

Session 3 – 3:00 – 3:45 PM
Periodontitis and Peri-implantitis: Clinical Concepts and Management
Alan Farber, DDS

As periodontitis and peri-implantitis have skyrocketed to epidemic levels, new concepts for treatment, prevention and management must be explored. Analyzing clinician satisfaction and results using the LANAP protocol laser treatment, this course will demonstrate how the treatment of these diseases has evolved to be more efficient and satisfactory for patients.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn differences between periodontitis associated with single rooted, versus multi rooted teeth.
  2. Learn the role of the inter-dental environment relative to dental diseases.
  3. Learn contemporary approaches to periodontal disease prevention.
  4. Explore concepts of ERSD (Enhanced Root Surface Debridement) and PRT (Pocket Reduction Therapy) facilitated by the PerioLase MVP-7 for the LANAP protocol.
  5. Review of initial user satisfaction data relative to the clinical value of the LANAP protocol for the definitive treatment of periodontitis.

Session 4 – 4:00 – 4:45 PM
Peri-Implantitis and Implant Failures
Jon B. Suzuki, DDS, PhD

OPeri-implantitis is a growing clinical issue for periodontists and other specialists. Management of peri-implantitis and implant failures remains difficult and unpredictable to treatment plan. Implant therapies display a constellation of approaches, including regeneration and laser therapies. This seminar highlights surgical and laser therapies, with an emphasis on LAPIP.

Learning Objectives

  1. Classify peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis, according to new AAP guidelines.
  2. Recognize the multiple primary etiologies of peri-implant disease.
  3. Treatment plan surgical and non-surgical approaches for implant rescue, including Nd:YAG laser therapies.
  4. Diagnose and treatment plan the various forms and levels of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis.
    Treat peri-implant disease, both non-surgically and surgically.
