IP2: Advances in Periodontics

October 28, 2022 @ 10:15 am - 11:15 am


Koji Mizutani

Elias Exarchos

Hanae Saito – Topic: The Effect of Macrogeometry in Peri-implant Soft Tissue Stability

Jeremy R. Kernitsky – Topic: Navigated Piezocision: Precision in Accelerated Tooth Movement


Hatice Hasturk

Yoshinori Shirakata


This session focuses on practical advances in clinical periodontal approaches. The presenters are experts in interdisciplinary periodontics and will share their recent experiences in various aspects of periodontal approaches providing guidance and recommendations based on scientific and clinical evidence.

Dr. Mizutani will first give an overview on minimally invasive surgical approaches using microsurgery and adjunctive laser application. The presentation will demonstrate their innovative approach in periodontal regeneration in challenging advanced cases including intrabony defects in patients with type 2 diabetes using enamel matrix derivatives and Erbium:YAG laser.

Dr. Exarchos will provide in-depth look at the various suture materials that are available in the field of periodontics and implantology. The benefits of each   suture material will be discussed along with some newer coated sutures and of course – the barbed suture! Following,

Dr. Saito will present practical approaches in single and multiple immediate tooth replacement with implants in the esthetic zone where esthetic risks and complications such as loss of labial plate thickness and mid-facial soft tissue recession exist. This presentation aims to demonstrate that implant macro-design such as inverted body-shift and angle correction is crucial to allow re-establishment of the dentogingival complex around implants minimizing esthetic risks and complications such as socket perforation, loss of labial plate thickness, and interdental papilla.

Finally, Dr. Kernitsky will present a novel technique that combines the use of Piezocision with a navigation guidance   system, as well as a brief discussion on the available literature regarding the biological implications of Piezocision in regard to root resorption.

Educational Objectives:
• Recognize the updated MI approaches with a high potential to enhance tissue regeneration in elderly or diabetic patients who have been considered having reduced treatment outcome.
• Investigate the most common suturing materials used in periodontics while exploring newer coated sutures and barbed suturing techniques.
• Recognize the effect of implant macrogeometry / abutment on the stability of peri-implant mucosal tissue.
• Appreciate a precise and novel technique for surgically accelerated tooth movement.
