Dental implants have provided a predicable means to replace teeth that are ailing/failing. Their predictability and generalizability have been such that many clinicians have abandoned trying to manage challenging clinical dilemmas like an advanced infrabony or furcation lesion. There are however, many clinical situations where ailing/failing teeth would be best managed by their retention. Regenerative therapy is one means by which periodontally compromised teeth can be maintained, particularly when considering some of the biologics available today. Moreover, regeneration can also be applied to treat dental implants that could otherwise be lost due to peri-implantitis. Topics to be covered will include non-surgical periodontal therapy, the adjunctive use of local delivery and systemic antibiotics, host modulation, lasers and surgical therapies with the emphasis on regeneration.
Dr. Rosen maintains a full-time practice in Yardley, Pennsylvania, limited to periodontics, surgical implant placement and regenerative therapy. He also has an appointment as Clinical Associate Professor of Periodontics at the University of Maryland Dental School. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and serves as an Examiner for the oral examination of the Board. He has served on a number of committees for the American Academy of Periodontology and reviews for a number of journals and helped found Clinical Advanced in Periodontology. He has authored/co-authored articles on periodontal regeneration and dental. Dr. Rosen has lectured nationally and internationally on the subject of regeneration for both teeth and dental implants.

(Dr. Med. Dent., 1976) and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (DMD, 1990), as well as Certificates in Prosthodontics (1979) and Periodontology (1986) from the University of Berne. He received his Swiss Board of Certification in the Periodontology in 1986. From 1990-2010 he serves in the faculty of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine of which the last 15 years as Chair of the Department of Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials Sciences. He has made numerous contributions to the scientific literature in the field and lectures nationally and internationally. Dr. Weber is an active member of several professional organizations including the Academy of Prosthodontics, the Academy of Osseointegration and the ITI. He also received Honorary Membership in the American College of Prosthodontists.
Dr. Weber is a Co-Editor of the journal Clinical Oral Implants Research. Topics for Dr. Weber's presentation will include a discussion of Implant treatment Planning and Risk Assessment, Implant Loading Protocols - An Evidence Based Update, The Extraction Socket as an Implant Site - Biological Events and Clinical Implications, Implants in the Esthetic Zone - Implant and Abutment Selection, Implant Assisted Prostheses and Occlusion and Complications - Prevention and Treatment.
This lecture will expose the attendee to new technologies in periodontics and implant dentistry. The influence of biologics and other new technologies will have a great impact upon the way we treat patients now and in the future including more rapid healing, improved outcomes, and patient satisfaction.
A Diplomate of The American Board of Periodontology, Dr. Scheyer currently serves as a District 5 Trustee for the American Academy of Periodontolgy and is President of the Southwest Society of Periodontists and President-elect of the Texas Society of Periodontists. He is in private practice limited to Periodontics and Implant Dentistry in Houston, TX. He is a Clinical Assistant Instructor at the University of Texas Dental Branch-Houston and Guest Lecturer for the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Drs.

Dr. Scheyer shares his research and vast perspectives through national and international lecturing and is a nationally recognized leader in his specialty field.
From the New England Journal of Medicine to Ladies Home Journal, the last 15 years have seen an explosion of published information related to the interactions between oral and systemic health. Patients reading this information want to know how it relates to their own health. This lecture reviews the links between periodontal/peri-implant inflammation and commonly encountered systemic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and pregnancy. The purpose of the lecture is to translate knowledge gleaned from medical and dental research into the everyday world of clinical dental practice.
