New Advances in Bone Regeneration
September 25, 2020
9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
As Surgical specialists, we have gradually moved away from the use of autogenous bone for peri-implant bone regeneration. Bone substitutes have now become the standard. However, not all products have the same regeneration potential. We will evaluate current popular bone products from a scientific and clinical aspect as well as demonstrated the subtle differences in the handling and regeneration potential of these products. We will also demonstrate the new 3D CAD/CAM printed bone grafts that are custom made to fit the defect. The allograft bone ring will also be demonstrated in clinical cases with advanced bone and soft tissue loss. The complications resulting in the use of these allograft products will be outlined. Clinical cases of advanced hard and soft tissue defects that have failed several reconstructions will be shown for open discussion to share our failures among our peers. Finally, we will present several promising new biomaterials that are in pre-clinical trials as we move toward the future smart biomaterial.
This year's Ernie Ambrose Lecture from Home will be delivered remotely by Dr. Hassan Moghadam.
On January 26th, 1920, the McGill University Board of Governors approved a motion to establish the Faculty of Dentistry based on the shared principle of pursuing excellence. 100 years later, these values continue to endure in every Dentistry alumni, and in each new student we admit to the Faculty.
Made to innovate
The Faculty of Dentistry is a powerhouse in research, due in no small part to its investment in innovative and interdisciplinary research that has allowed the Faculty to become a leader in dental sciences.
Made to make a difference
Serving the community remains at the heart of our mission, and fuels our vision for dentistry. Through a network of community dental clinics, the Faculty has delivered free and reduced-cost dental treatments to Montrealers for decades.
Made to keep learning
Our curriculum is constantly evolving to set the pace of the dental profession, but learning doesn't stop after graduation - McGill Dentistry grads are empowered to keep learning to stay ahead of the curve in their practice.
