President’s Message

Dear Colleague: Thank you for joining me at the Academy of General Dentistry’s 57th Annual Meeting & Exhibits where you’ll experience more incredible lecturers, fascinating participation courses, more fun-filled events, and more AGD accomplishments! During my tenure as the first female president of the AGD, the Academy has enjoyed incredible accomplishments. It seems very appropriate to culminate my presidency in Baltimore, where I received my Fellowship Award in 1995. At the same AGD Annual Meeting & Exhibits, I was honored to receive the Distinguished Service Award. This week, I plan to celebrate the accomplishments of my colleagues, beginning with our honored recipients of the Distinguished Service, Humanitarian, and Albert Borish Awards. Join me in recognizing these general dentists’ service to our communities and profession during the House of Delegates Second Session/Awards Ceremony. On Friday morning, I’ll look for you at the finish line of the first AGD Foundation Fun Run, at 6 a.m. Bring your family and friends to participate in the event or cheer from the sidelines. All proceeds from the Fun Run will benefit Special Olympics Special Smiles®, a cause that I passionately support. Then, add to your own accomplishments by earning up to 36 hours of CE from the more than 40 hands-on courses and free lectures. Purchase the latest products, services, and technology from the exhibiting companies in Exhibit Hall E. The exhibit hall offers various events and contests including the Welcome Reception, Learning Labs, and daily raffles. For the first time, AGD is offering CE credit at the Resource Pavilion when you take a quick seminar about the practice management offerings available to members on the AGD Web site. Please join me again on Saturday to support the professional accomplishments of the 231 new Fellows, 155 new Masters, and 33 new Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition recipients at the AGD Convocation Ceremony in the Baltimore Convention Center. After the ceremony, we will celebrate a week of accomplishments at an American landmark, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, during the Premier Celebration. I hope that by the end of these five days you’ll leave Baltimore with more knowledge that you can use when you return to your practice, more friends that you’ve made or with whom you’ve reconnected, and more memories of incredible accomplishments by members of our great profession. Welcome to Baltimore! Paula S. Jones, DDS, FAGD

President, 2008-2009 Academy of General Dentistry


On behalf of Maryland’s proud citizens, it is my pleasure to welcome you back to Baltimore for the Academy of General Dentistry’s Annual Meeting. We know there is no shortage of competition to host this prestigious event, and we are honored that you have chosen the great State of Maryland. During your stay here, you will quickly learn why Baltimore is fondly known as “Charm City.” The warmth of its residents and the charm of its neighborhoods attract visitors from around the world and keep them coming back. I hope that you are able to take full advantage of your visit and explore some of our historical, cultural and entertainment offerings, most of which are within walking distance of the city’s spectacular waterfront, the Baltimore Convention Center, and your hotel. While you are here, I also encourage you to explore all that Maryland has to offer. Our State is a place filled with endless opportunities for making memories that last a lifetime. Maryland’s compact size makes it possible to see it all, from the beaches of Ocean City on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, to Deep Creek Lake and the alluring mountains of Western Maryland. Again, congratulations on what is sure to be a successful AGD Annual Meeting. I wish everyone all the best for an exciting and rewarding conference and continued success in your future endeavors. Sincerely,

!Martin O’Malley Governor

There are many different porcelain veneer cements available. Each participant will try a variety of light-cured resin cements and learn the step-by-step techniques for treatment of the veneer and the tooth for predictable and successful bonding. Each participant will place porcelain veneers with a predictable technique that mimics a patient procedure. Finally, instructors will conduct an overview of what will provide a patient with the best long-term success by evaluating porcelain veneer failures; long-term research with success will also be presented. The course will also include a handson participation that will teach how to mask discolored teeth with a color neutralization technique. Learning Objectives: •List the indications for minimally invasive and conventional porcelain veneers •Describe a conventional porcelain veneer preparation and minimally invasive porcelain veneer preparation •Describe the clinical technique and materials used for the placement of porcelain veneers •Describe and demonstrate the techniques for the placement of porcelain veneers using the simultaneous technique

The course will address the concepts of biological width and ferrule design in achieving predictable esthetic, restorative, and periodontal clinical outcomes. One of the highlights of this hands-on-course is a stepby-step instruction of surgical technique, including flap design and suturing, using an electric hand piece to perform osseous crown lengthening on a pig jaw model. In addition, participants will be introduced to piezoelectric surgery. All materials and instruments will be provided for participants.

This participation program, using chair-mounted dental simulation/mannequins, will provide the rationale for minimally invasive and conventional porcelain veneers and make impressions. To achieve the best esthetic result with porcelain veneers, clinicians must provide the dental laboratory with the specifics for the veneer that the laboratory will be fabricating. During this program, each clinician will learn how to write a laboratory work authorization for porcelain veneers that communicates the final result desired. The use of diagnostic casts and digital photographs will be presented.

REYNOLDS, DDS, PHD $235 ($285) Subject: 690 Credits: 4 Wednesday, 8 a.m. to Noon Audience: D Room: 5451/5452, University of Maryland Dental School Tooth extractions often compromise alveolar ridge form and the potential for a successful prosthetic outcome. This course focuses on the critical role of extraction socket preservation and enhancement prior to implant tooth replacement or restoration to optimize an esthetic and functional clinical outcome. This course will introduce a step-by-step hands-on approach in various socket preservation techniques following tooth extraction using a pig jaw model. Not all extraction sockets require augmentation; therefore, emphasis will be placed on the clinical parameters to guide practitioners in the selection of sockets most likely to benefit from bone grafting. In addition to surgical techniques, currently available bone grafts and barrier materials will be reviewed in this presentation. The course will highlight common ”dos” and “don’ts” in the management of extraction sites.

L01 | Treatment Planning: A Biomechanical Rationale* CARL E. MISCH, BS, DDS, MDS, PHD Subject: 690 Credits: 7 Wednesday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Lunch: Noon to 1 p.m.) Audience: D Room: BCC BLRM 1 The most common early loading failure in implant dentistry is in the softest bone types or when implants are shorter than 10 mm. The primary cause of failure is from biomechanical overload. Therefore, a treatment plan should have a biomechanical rationale to reduce the risk of failure. Implant treatment plans include key implant positions based on biomechanics. These key positions follow four initial guidelines: • No cantilevers • Limit to two pontics • Canine and first molar position • Arch dynamics Once the key implant positions are determined, additional implants are used to decrease above-average patient force factors or below-average bone density, or when key implant positions cannot be inserted.

DEL CASTILLO, DMD, PA $235 ($285) Subject: 310 Credits: 4 Thursday, 1 to 5 p.m. Audience: D BCC Room: 342 Current trends in oral implantology are focused on modification of the original surgical and prosthetic treatment protocols in response to direct demands from patients. Today’s patients expect optimal esthetics and shorter treatment times in respect to oral implant treatment. For the implant team to be successful there has to be a clear understanding that modern implant therapy is not just the osseointegration of the implant. Our patient’s esthetic expectations require that the implant team have the ability to deal with common hard and soft tissue issues. Following the lecture portion, the participants will fabricate cement/or screw retained temporary restoration.

L08 | Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure™ (LANAP™) ROBERT H. GREGG II, DDS Subject: 135 Credits: 4 Thursday, 1 to 5 p.m. Audience: D BCC Room: 326 In 2004, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the first laser periodontal procedure for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure—Cementum-medicated new periodontal ligament attachment to the root surface in the absence of long junctional epithelium. This FDA clearance followed the completion of the fourth largest human histology with a control group in the history of periodontal research, showing 100 percent of the Laser ANAP treated teeth (6 of 6) showing new attachment. Pulsed fiber-optic Nd:YAG lasers have been used extensively for sulcular debridement (“laser curettage”) since 1989. Until recently, no laser has been advocated or reported as part of a replacement protocol for use in the treatment of moderate to advanced periodontal disease as definitive therapy or for creation of new attachment. This presentation discusses the Laser ANAP (assisted new attachment procedure) using a variable microsecond pulsed free-running (FR) Nd:YAG fiber-optic laser to treat periodontal disease case types III and IV to achieve long-term health and stability via new attachment methodology in pocket depths from 6 mm to 19 mm. The success rate in a retrospective, multicentered, clinical study reported in a peer-reviewed journal is 91 percent. This presentation also will highlight how LANAP is great for both the patient and dental practice profitability.

Subject: 130 Credits: 4 Thursday, 1 to 5 p.m. Audience: DTC (D, H, A) BCC Room: 343 This half-day lecture will review the rationale and utilization of the surgical microscope in routine restorative practice. Dentists will realize the benefits of reduced neck and back strain that comes from a relaxed ergonomic position that simply cannot be duplicated with loupes or using the unaided eye. The team will see that a microscope practice must become extremely efficient to keep the dentist centered in the microscope (and being focused on the restorative treatment) the teamwork between the dentist and the assistants becomes integral and fluid with this practice. And finally, the old adage “you can’t treat what you can’t see” becomes alive with new meaning. You can see and then potentially treat what was previously missed. And you can see everything in a much higher magnification than possible with loupes, with better illumination. This ability to work at high magnification allows even a superb clinician to refine their hand movements even more for high degrees of precision. This is an absolute must for those wishing to do the finest work available anywhere.

Subject: 670 Credits: 4 Thursday, 1 to 5 p.m. Audience: D BCC Room: 347 Baby boomers are reaching retirement age, and this has affected the demographic and prosthetic needs of implant patients. The implant-supported overdenture is considered a new standard of care for fully edentulous patients. However, the traditional, two-stage implant therapy combined with delayed load concepts has not been very popular among elderly patients because of multiple surgeries, the prolonged course of treatment, and high expenses.

The same-day immediate load treatment protocol for fully edentulous patients enables clinicians to provide all of the surgical and prosthetic steps in one visit. On the same day of implant placement, the patient leaves the office with a fixed screw-retained implant–supported overdenture!

Hygienist

New generations of implants offer totally different geometry at the macro, mini and micro levels, compared to the older machined titanium screws of 25 years ago. This new generation has opened a new horizon in implant therapy. Any clinician who is involved with implant dentistry should learn the immediate placement/load protocol since it is significantly different from the traditional protocol.

Invisalign is an esthetic orthodontic technique that corrects malocclusion using a series of custom-made, nearly invisible, removable aligners. Proven effective in clinical studies at universities and private practices nationwide, thousands of dentists are certified to treat patients with Invisalign. Invisalign combines diagnosis and treatment plans with advances in 3D computer graphics technology to move teeth in stages. Patients wear a new set of aligners every two weeks, 22 hours a day, moving teeth gradually, week by week, millimeter by millimeter, until the desired results are achieved. Upon completion of this course, the practitioner and staff will be fully confident in their ability to integrate Invisalign into their practice. Tuition for the course covers the dentist and up to four auxiliary staff members for the full-day course.

The lecture portion will show you how to evaluate, select and use today’s esthetic composite resin materials to their best advantage. True esthetics with the use of direct composite resin can be achieved only if one understands how to use these materials and can master the technology involved. Areas of focus will include; the stepwise application of microfills, hybrids, nano hybrids, opaquers and tints. In addition contouring, characterizing, finishing and polishing will be emphasized.

ROBERT A. CONVISSAR, DDS, FAGD $380 ($430) Subject: 135 Credits: 7 Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Lunch: Noon to 1 p.m. ) Audience: D (Advanced−Must have Academy of Laser Dentistry certification) BCC Room: 336 Determining how to use a laser is more than just looking in a manual to select the proper watts for the procedure. When performing laser dentistry, the dentist must know not only what the proper parameters are for a procedure, but why those parameters are best. By understanding how the three parameters of energy, time, and spot size affect laser/tissue interaction, the dentist will be able to make one instrument perform virtually any laser surgical procedure. The purpose of this course is to give the laser dentist the proper knowledge necessary to confidently manipulate energy, time, and spot size to in order to maximize treatment results. This presentation will also review the scientific rationale for the use of lasers in both surgical and non-surgical periodontal treatment. A discussion of the peer-reviewed literature will give us the solid scientific principles on which we base our clinical decisions and treatment plans. This will be followed by a step-by-step procedure on how to achieve superior periodontal results.

Learning Objectives: •Review basic anatomical relationships that are key to a detailed examination of the dental patient •Be involved in discussion relating to temporomandibular joint health and pathofunction •Understand various subgroups of masticatory muscle disorders •Review anatomical factors relating to glandular, neural, and vascular pain that may mimic odontogenic or temporomandibular-related conditions •Review basic principles of diagnostic and treatment anesthetic procedures

fOUNDATION PROGRAMS ”Reason To Smile” Grant Program

You cannot help everyone everywhere, but you can help someone somewhere. The new program by AGD Foundation was created to help you arrive at your destination to help someone in need. “A Reason To Smile” encourages AGD members to donate their skills and time by volunteering to treat underserved populations. The AGD Foundation will be a resource for volunteer services domestically. Visit www.agd.org click on the Foundation tab, and choose Programs and Funds from the drop down menu, then search by the state or program you would like to volunteer, and sign up. The AGD Foundation will grant $1,000 per AGD member, per year, to be used for travel expenses, including transportation, lodging and meals.

Online Provider Directory

The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) Foundation is on a mission to increase access to dental care for Special Olympics athletes, as well as to all people with intellectual disabilities. One of the problems with providing dental services for those with intellectual disabilities is the identification of dentists who are willing to treat them. To help solve this issue, the AGD and the AGD Foundation partnered with Special Olympics Special Smiles® (SOSS) to identify providers for primary dental care for Special Olympics athletes. General dentists willing to provide health care services for persons with intellectual disabilities can identify themselves through the Special Olympics Provider Directory. Providers in the directory are not asked to provide free dental care to these athletes. Special Olympics athletes or their caregivers access the directory and contact individual dental offices just like any other patient does. Dentists then decide (just as they do with all of their patients) whether to accept Special Olympics athletes as new patients. The AGD Foundation is asking all AGD members to add their names to the SOSS Provider Directory. Adding your name and contact information is fast and easy. To sign up, visit www.agd.org, click on the Foundation tab, choose Provider Directory from the drop down menu, and register to join.
