Osseodensification: Optimize the Site-Optimize the Outcome
Salah Huwais, DDS
Osseodensification, an evidence-based approach to osteotomy preparation that enhances implant stability and bone density without compromising healing. This lecture will present the biomechanical, histological healing timeline, and clinical data of Osseodensification. It will discuss bone plasticity and its clinical effect and will also cover the clinical versatility of this novel technique including Sub-Crestal Sinus Auto Grafting, Ridge Expansion, Immediate Implant Placement with Osseodensification, and Guided Expansion Graft. Several clinical protocols will be outlined.
Learning Objectives: Participant should be able to:

Osseodensification – Hard Tissue Optimization
Michael A. Pikos, DDS
This clinical based presentation will focus on the speaker’s 3 year experience with the use of proprietary rotary burs that provide a unique densification of bone during osteotomy preparation for dental implants. Clinical cases will be presented that are representative of their use for increased insertion torques for conventional implant placement, immediate implant placement in fresh extraction sockets, ridge splitting, simultaneous implant placement with sinus grafting and crestal sinus grafting with immediate implant placement. Clinical advantages will be addressed in detail.
