Under the leadership of its founding president Dr. Sammy Noumbissi, the International Academy of Ceramic Implantology (IAOCI) held its winter congress in Miami, on January 24 and 25, 2014 . In attendance were delegates from 11 states in the USA, the UK, France, Japan, Germany, Spain, Jamaica, Canada, and Switzerland!
Our world-renowned and expert speakers included Drs. Elizabeth Valentine-Thon, Dan Hagi, Josep Oliva, Sammy Noumbissi, Andrea Mombelli, Stephen Evans, Ralf Luettmann, Judson Wall, Noriaki Honma, Mr. Taylor Hunter from Aurum Dental Laboratories and Mr. Jared Young from Big Diastema Marketing.
We want to thank Z-Systems USA, Ceraroot Implants, Aurum Dental Laboratories, Albensi Dental Laboratories, Zeramex Ceramic Implants, Lasers for Dentistry, Healthier Smiles Dental and TAV ceramic Implants for their gracious support.
This year featured one of the best curricula ever for a dental implant event and the information shared was bar-none. If you weren’t able to make it this year, you won’t want to miss next year’s event, we are now beginning to go through the 48 hours of video footage we recorded and will soon be making those DVDs available to anyone interested in learning more about Zirconia Dental implants.
Next Year’s congress will be held again in Florida during the last week of February 2015, more details to come soon!!
Thank you to Ms. Ronetta Jones who worked tirelessly to make this happen and everyone who helped make it possible!
For the second year in a row, Dr. Noumbissi and Miles of Smiles Implant Dentistry’s staff attended and participated in the 9th annual Green Festival at the Washington DC convention center. Over 300 visitors stopped by our booth, we shared information and educated them on the health benefits of replacing missing teeth and improving their smiles with metal free dental implants. Metal free dental implants are made of zirconia which is a bioceramic that’s inert. In other words unlike titanium implants which are metal, they do not corrode, conduct electricity nor attract electromagnetic fields to one’s head.
Thanks for the support and to all who stopped by our booth.
Dr. Noumbissi Speaks At The International Academy Of Ceramic Implantology Symposium (IAOCI) In Las Vegas September 5, 2013.
On September 5, 2013, Dr. Noumbissi moderated and spoke at the International Academy of Ceramic Implantology symposium in Las Vegas. There he presented his preliminary findings of a two-year study he has been conducting on safe and predictable assessment of ceramic implant integration prior to restoration. The protocol involved the use of the Periotest instrument on one hundred ceramic implants. The preliminary findings showed 97% success rate and confirmed that success rates of zirconia ceramic implants are comparable to that of titanium minus the risk of corrosion, metal sensitivity, plaque and bacterial accumulation. Dr. Noumbissi findings suggest in most cases zirconia implants can be restored (crowns and bridges) at approximately four to five months after implant insertion in the jaw bone. This study is currently submitted for review by an international and peer reviewed journal of clinical dental implantology.
This two-day course is designed to provide implantologists of all levels the ability to confidently integrate three dimensional diagnosis and treatment planning in their daily practice. The program will consist of lectures and case presentations, over-the-shoulder hands-on computer software training, practical hands-on exercises and a live-surgery demonstration during which use of the computer generated surgical guide and accessories will be demonstrated. In addition, anatomical interpretation and sequential diagnostic protocols for implant planning and placement will be taught and explained. On the second day simulated surgical implant placement will be practiced on computer generated models from the scans submitted by attendees. In the afternoon there will be a live surgery demonstration during which a computer generated surgical guide and accessories will be demonstrated.
Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to:
Understand the importance and advantages of cone-beam imaging.
Assess implant recipient site anatomy three-dimensionally.
Differentiate abnormal findings versus artifacts.
Identify vital structures and tagging them on a CBCT study.
Utilizing software tools to enhance visualization and diagnostics.
When to refer to an ENT for further evaluation.
Identify the prosthetic need for site preparation and/or preservation.
Cone beam CT evaluation using a sequential diagnostic protocol.
Perform interactive treatment planning on your own computer.
Utilize CBCT and virtual implant planning software to increase case success.
Know how to order and customize surgical guide design for each case.
Understand the workflow from obtaining a scan, to ordering surgical guides.
Utilize the In Vivo surgical guide drill handle kit.
Decision making when purchasing a CBCT unit.
Medico-legal ramifications of CBCT.
Submission of a basic dental implant case you plan to treat in your practice after attending the course.
A laptop computer with enough processing power to download and utilize the InVivo software during and after the course.
All participants to this course will receive a free 60-day fully functional version of InVivo 5 implant planning software installed on their laptop computer.
