Dr. Sargon Lazarof graduated as a Doctor of Dental Surgery (with Honors) in 1986 from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry. His postgraduate studies involve the Study of Disease of the Temporomandibular Joint at the TMJ Research Foundation. As well as being a past clinical professor at USC’s School of Dentistry, Dr. Sargon Lazarof is the inventor/developer of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) first approved immediate load implant, which has been described in the industry as the “first major innovation in dental implantology since the early work of P.I. Branemark.” In 1991 he wrote a paper that first coined the term “immediate load” and described it as full function at the time of placement. A few years later in 1998 his book was published “The Immediate Load Implant System, Esthetic Dentistry for the 21st Century,” by Quintessence Publishing Co., Ltd.
In addition to being a fellow of the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics, he maintains a full-time practice in implantology and is the Founder of the Sargon Dental & Implant Institute located in Encino, California, USA, where doctors come and train in both basic and advanced implantology.
Dr. Sargon Lazarof, the inventor of the ULTRATOOTH, will be discussing how ULTRATOOTH implants can be placed in Full function at the time of placement as a single or multiple tooth replacement. FDA cleared in 1994, after the original Branemark implant, this is the only device on the market that was required to submit clinical cases for 510K approval and acquired its own FDA category as a root form implant with special features. After 27 years of ongoing studies, clinical trials, and enhancements, we are now proud to introduce the future of immediate tooth replacement.
ULTRATOOTH is an apically expandable quintapodal root-form dental fixture. It is surgically self-tapped into an osseous bore and expanded by turning of a screw within its central channel to 20 Ncm2 resulting in mechanical integration immediately. This process stimulates the surrounding bone to react by further increasing its density physiologically. The ULTRATOOTH can replace infected, failing, broken, or missing teeth in just one visit with full functionality after placement.

The effect of neurotransmitters and biologically active substances on upper respiratory tract’s vascular smooth muscles are due by the specific receptors in the blood vessels and by the features of their innervation. By the histochemical and physiological methods detected adrenergic, purinergic, peptidergic and other receptors and from these positions have been assessed the regulation mechanisms of blood flow in the nasal and oral cavity mucosa.
The goal of research was to study the mechanisms of blood flow regulation in the nasal and oral cavity mucous membranes from the perspective of improvement the blood circulation in the oral cavity. Such research is recommended as for clinical dentistry as well for keeping the blood flow in the oral cavity within the optimum. Different factors effect on blood vessels diameter of oral cavity and upper respiratory tract mucosa. vasoconstriction and vasodilatation can effect on breathing, nose and oral bleeding and on development of inflammatory processes.

Children with an autistic disorder may need more dental care and may also be more difficult to treat than healthy children. Autism, or autism spectrum disorder ASD refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 59 children in the United States today: 1 in 37 boys, 1 in 151 girls. Types of autism in children are autistic disorder ASD, Asperger’s Syndrome AS, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder CDD, Rett’s Syndrome RTT, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified PDD-NOS. Most common dental problems in autistic pediatric patients are: Gingival overgrowth 4.8%, Early and late tooth decay 9.5%, Severe, early periodontal gum disease 8.5%, The habit of constantly grinding their teeth, which is also known as bruxism, Tooth anomalies that are related to the size, shape, and the number of teeth present 15%, Accelerated, inconsistent, and/or delayed eruption of one or more teeth 23%. Therefore, proper oral health education programs should be initiated and directed toward this special section of the society. Difficulties facing pediatric dentist dealing with autistic patients is considered to children, have extreme sensory and oral motor integration and the dentist can be a very frightful experience, like dental management for autistic patients, clear communication in understandable words, using simple words to explain the next move, involving the patient in treatment procedure through behavior guidance, rewarding the child after each successful intervention. Therefore, in order to improve oral hygiene and oral health status, individual training with autistic children and their parents is needed.
Dr. Hans Ulrik Paulsen Graduated at Dentistry, Royal Dental College, Copenhagen, Denmark in 1965 and completed the Orthodontic specialist program at Copenhagen University, Denmark in 1971 (Björk). He practiced at Municipal Dental Health Service, Department of Orthodontics, in Denmark. He has studied at Harvard University, Department of Orthodontics and Forsythe Institute (Moorrees), Boston, USA. He has been Visiting professor at University of Illinois (Evans), Chicago, USA, also Associated professor at Royal Dental College, Department of Orthodontics (Melsen), Aarhus, Denmark and Visiting professor at Karolinska Institut, Department of Orthodontics (Huggare), Stockholm, Sweden. He received SIDO World Award in 1991, SIDO Poster Award in 1995, SIDO Clinical Lecture Award in 1999, all degrees from Italy, and Moyers Symposium (McNamara) in 2004, University of Michigan, USA. His Scandinavian research degree, Odont Dr. (Premolar autotransplantation in Orthodontic Treatment) was received in 1999 from Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden.
The Lecture will focus on treatment possibilities, tissue healing, tooth eruption, tooth rotation during treatment and long-term evaluation of autotransplanted premolars, ie. followed 25 – 35 years standardized. – One hundred consecutive patients treated with autotransplantation caused tooth loss, hypodontia and ectopic tooth position. All patients (9.2-14.4 years, mean 12.8), 53 boys and 47 girls, had one-rooted premolars transplanted from one region to another. Totally 118 premolars were transplanted in root stages with an open apex wider than 1 mm. Primary healing and follow-up were tested using a Siemens electrometric pulp tester to detect pulpal reinnervation and standardized radiographs to test transplant healing and root development generally. Assessments were carried out at 1, 4, 8, 12 and 24 weeks and thereafter yearly after transplantation. Tooth eruption and root development was evaluated using a color coding technic, developed at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden. Ninety seven transplants were moved or rotated orthodontically 3-9 months after transplantation. – Complicated problems were moved to other regions or replaced, easier to solve orthodontically. Most transplanted premolars showed normal tooth eruption. Transplants induced bone induction during tooth eruption. Transplants erupted before visible root formation and before visible alveolar bone formation. Furthermore, marginal gingiva was transferred with both papillae. It was found survival of 91.5% and failures of 8.5% for all transplants. Premolars transplanted as maxillary incisors had a higher incidence of failures (15%) than premolars transplanted to the mandibular premolar regions (7.6%). – Conclusion: Marginal gingiva was transferred with both papillae. Transplantation induced tooth eruption and bone induction. Transplantation of one-rooted premolars carried out by a trained oral surgeon had a long-term survival of 91.5% – even transplants were moved or rotated orthodontically 3-9 months after surgery. The method can therefore be taken into account in the orthodontic treatment planning.

Tooth transposition can be considered as a challenge in the correction of a malocclusion. DA dental transposition is an uncommon pathology affecting 0.4% of the population. Unilateral transposition of a maxillary canine with a lateral incisor can be treated by reversing the positions of the transposed tooth positions or by maintaining the initial inverted position. An appropriate outcome is based on an accurate diagnostic process as well as on the application of efficient biomechanical strategies. The recent advent of clear aligner treatments offers new, efficient and comfortable options for in order to achievinge appreciable results.

- The audience will learn the protocol of GBT, evidence supporting it and how this advanced system is the best approach for dealing with periodontal and gingival disease.
- The audience will learn how the powders all affect the biofilm and tooth surfaces and learn about the EMS kit itself and how this system is so effective at treating these conditions.
- This system is starting to be recognised by Universities in the UK and across Europe and is even being considered for the curriculum. Practice owners can also benefit from it, as it can reduce surgery time for their hygienists to focus on OHI. The EMS system is a much more efficient piece of kit for in surgery, patients prefer it due to the technology that causes it to be pain free treatment. Patients are happier, appointment zoning is better for treatment, appointment times are reduced due to efficiency of the treatment and the clinical results are far greater when using this treatment protocol.

Dentistry has never been more exciting than today. The development of new materials such as ceramics and composites and new concepts such as minimal dentistry or micro dentistry have pushed a number of practitioners to use magnification in their daily practice.
The use of magnification by dental clinicians is becoming more commonplace. The best instrument for this purpose is the operating microscope which has been shown to enhance quality, longevity and outcome of clinical work as well as facilitating better ergonomics.
My lecture explores the potential of the operating microscope, especially in cosmetic dentistry, and discusses the interest of microscope in the precision of anterior dental preparation and restorations.

The oral cavity contains various microorganisms. The microbial composition of peri-implant biofilm is part of the resident oral microbiota. Bacterial culture demonstrated that healthy peri-implant tissue populated by aerobic Gram-positive. Whereas the infectious tissue associated with Gram-negative anaerobic rods. Peri-implant diseases are peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. Disruption and removal of plaque are required for successful treatment outcomes and is the goal of prevention. Successful treatment of peri-implant infection is combining of mechanical debridement, chemical plaque control, and antimicrobial agents. As well as, adjunctive antiseptic therapies have been suggested. One of the antiseptics used for management is chlorhexidine. But due to the side effect, it is recommended for a short time period only. Among herbals, miswak is more effective as antimicrobial. There was no significant difference in the efficacy of miswak and chx. Nowadays miswak is being used worldwide because of low cost, free availability, special chemical composition, and spiritual beliefs

One of the objectives of orthodontic treatment is an aesthetically pleasing and balanced face. For the desired treatment result in orthodontic treatment, accurate diagnosis and proper treatment planning is needed. Geometric morphometrics has proven a powerful tool in research and a new method in shape identification in the diagnosis of malocclusion. The geometric morphometrics method allows to define, partition and analysis of shape variations in populations of species, regardless of changes in scaling (size components). As different races have different norms that cannot be applied to other races, thus, the treatment plan should be designed accordingly. Currently, most orthodontists rely on guidelines and norms for harmonious skeletal and soft tissue factors which are based on studies conducted on mostly Caucasian samples. The hard-tissue analysis alone for treatment planning is inadequate in Orthodontic. Besides, a close relationship of the soft tissue profile to the underlying skeletal pattern may not occur and the changes in soft tissue were not identical to those reflected by the skeletal pattern.
The aim of this study is to assess the size and shape and its variations of hard and soft tissue in different skeletal patterns in adult patients by 2-dimensional (2D) geometric morphometrics in Malaysian population
