Our Webinars

The more you know, the more you can grow. Here are our latest webinars to help you advance your practice in True Bone Regeneration.

Introduction to Grafting Techniques Using EthOss

This webinar is designed for clinicians who are unfamiliar with EthOss bone grafting material, with Dr Howard Koch (UK) giving an overview of the tools and techniques which allow him to achieve predictable, successful results on a daily basis.

The discussion will include:
– Soft tissue flap design
– Effective degranulation/cleaning of the site
– Material placement
– Wound closure and follow up

About the speaker:

Howard graduated for the Royal Dental Hospital, Leicester Square London in 1981. He has been in general practice full time and has always had a keen interest in the surgical side of dentistry and was lucky to gain a lot of experience working as an NHS dentist in his early days.

Howard undertook extensive training in dental implantology around 15 years ago, soon developing a passion for the area and taking on more complex cases. Bone grafting is an integral part of implantology and Howard was lucky to meet Peter Fairbairn in his early days who introduced him to synthetic bone grafts.

“I have only ever placed one bovine particulate and porcine collagen membrane graft, I use EthOss on a daily basis with remarkable results” Dr Howard Koch

Using EthOss for Socket Preservation and Immediate Implant Placements in the Aesthetic Zone

During this webinar, Jonny will be sharing his experiences of using EthOss bone grafting material for socket preservation and with assisting immediate implant placements in the aesthetic zone. The discussion will include several case studies, showing how these techniques can be best used to achieve predictably successful results.

The discussion will include:

  • Tips for achieving optimum EthOss particulate integrity and retention, thereby ensuring predictable bone regeneration.
  • Acknowledgement of the challenges in immediate implant placements, including the importance of thorough site degranulation and considered flap design.
  • Jonny’s treatment protocols for socket preservation and immediate implant placements in the aesthetic zone.
  • Case studies showing consistently reliable results via careful clinical application.

Soft tissue management when using EthOss

During this event Andrew will be discussing soft tissue management techniques in dental implantology, with a specific focus on combining these techniques with EthOss bone grafting material.

Drawing on Andrew’s considerable experience, this webinar will focus on:

  • Why soft tissue management matters – the tissue is the issue
  • Soft tissue grafting techniques, including material considerations
  • The EthOss effect – impact of bone grafting materials on soft tissue response
  • A series of case studies considering a selection of defects

Crestal Sinus Lift Techniques combining EthOss and Densification Burs

During this webinar, Dominic will be sharing his experiences of combining EthOss bone grafting material with densification burs (Densah) in crestal sinus lift procedures. The discussion will include several case studies, showing how these techniques can be combined with immediate implant placement for successful results. Both bone level and tissue level cases will be shown.

Discussion will include:

  • Overview of techniques and challenges in combining EthOss with Versah, this will also include the use of degranulation burs, flap design and suturing tips.
  • Treatment protocol for immediate placement
  • Case studies, discussing using these techniques in practice, showing both tissue and bone level implant cases.
  • Achieving predictable results by careful case selection, tips for accurate implant positioning and how to ensure membrane integrity.

Stability without membranes: “Dome device” technique for larger bone defects – Dr Mike Ainsworth

Dr Mike Ainsworth will discuss this exciting technique, utilising EthOss bone graft material and a “dome device” to create a stable graft, without a collagen membrane, even in larger defects.

Created using short lengths of resorbable suture, the dome device helps to reliably prevent soft tissue pressure from disturbing the graft, whilst still being fully replaced by patient host bone.

The discussion will include:

  • Overview of published research outlining the “dome device” technique and its potential to increase stability
  • Clinical challenges (and potential solutions) in creating the “dome device”
  • Case studies discussing utilising the technique in practice

Dr Ainsworth recently published in the European Journal for Dental Implantologists (Issue 1/19) demonstrating this technique – the paper can be viewed here: https://ethoss.dental/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/edi_01_19_cs_ainsworth_ethoss.pdf.

Biography of the Speaker
Michael Ainsworth graduated from Birmingham University in 2002 and has been in private practice since that time. He became very interested in complex and cosmetic dentistry immediately, attending many courses and conferences both at home and abroad and started placing implants under supervision soon thereafter, completing a 1 year certification course in 2004.

Over the course of the last decade and under the mentorship of Peter Fairbairn he has developed a keen interest in streamlining techniques for the use of synthetic biomaterials in bone grafting, and soft tissue development.

In 2007 he moved to Spain to run a private practice. Since returning to the UK he has worked in a number of practices in Yorkshire and the West Midlands. He is currently undertaking an MSc in Periodontology and has limited his practice to dental implant treatments.

Sinus Augmentation Procedures: Using Synthetic Grafts for True Bone Regeneration

In this webinar Dr Fairbairn will be discussing his experiences with modern alloplastic materials in sinus augmentation procedures, presenting a range of clinical cases utilising different techniques.

The discussion will focus on:

  • Overview of recommended treatment protocol – how to reliably load implants following a sinus augmentation at 12 weeks
  • How the body responds to different graft materials, and how this can affect results in the sinus
  • Challenges (and potential solutions) in sinus procedures
  • Presentation of a wide variety of clinical cases

Biography of the Speaker
Peter is visiting Professor at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry (Mi., USA) and Director of Education of the Association of Dental Implantology (UK) as well as past president of the London Dental Fellowship.

He has placed Dental Implants since 1991 at the Scarsdale Dental Clinic in West London and has performed over 5,500 successful graft procedures with synthetic materials. He has written numerous published articles, Pubmed studies (both clinical and animal) as well as chapters in two published books. He has lectured in over 30 countries globally in the last 10 years.

Please note this webinar is a specialist presentation intended for dental professionals only, it is not a suitable event for the general public.

Published Protocol for Reliable and Effective True Bone Regeneration – Dr Peter Fairbairn

During this webinar Dr Fairbairn will discuss the “Protocol for Bone Augmentation with Simultaneous Early Implant Placement”.

Published in 2015, this Protocol showcases the benefits of reducing surgery, upregulating the host healing response, and utilising modern alloplastic materials to achieve reliable and effective true bone regeneration.

The discussion will focus on:

  • Using smaller, site-specific flaps to reduce surgery
  • The benefits of a 3-week healing period following extraction
  • Hard tissue modelling
  • Simultaneous implant placement and grafting
  • How to reliably load implants at 12 weeks

The publication in 2015 of the “Protocol for Bone Augmentation with Simultaneous Early Implant Placement” was the culmination of this experience. A full PDF of the Protocol will be distributed to all attendees of the webinar.

The Ideology of True Bone Regeneration – Dr Peter Fairbairn

Presented by Dr Peter Fairbairn, an implantologist with over 5,500 grafts over a 20 year career, this webinar will discuss:

  • How to optimise patient outcomes – putting patients back in the healthy state they were in before dental problems developed
  • Graft material choice – using fully resorbable materials to up-regulate the host healing response and achieve true bone regeneration
  • Integrated membranes and how modern materials remove the need for separate collagen membranes
  • Treatment Protocol – achieving consistent, reliable results
