HANDS-ON Zirconia Dental Implant Workshop in Michigan 2022
ZERAMEX Zirconia Implants: HANDS-ON Zirconia Dental Implant Workshop
in Ann Arbor, Michigan!
Date: April 29, 2022
REQUEST MORE INFORMATION
Join ZERAMEX to learn more about how you too, can integrate Zirconia implants into your practice! Each of our training sessions will be led by qualified trained dentists, who place ZERAMEX implants in their own practices.
In this workshop, you will learn:
Why Zirconia Implants are perfect for Esthetic Implant Practice
The Biological side of having Zirconia Dental Implants
The Research behind Zirconia Implants
Limitations of Zirconia Implants
Negative Effects of Titanium Implants
The future is Now – Don’t be left behind!
Dr. Paresh Patel
Dr. Paresh Patel is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry and the Medical College of Georgia/AAID MaxiCourse. He is a fellow of the Misch International Implant Institute and a diplomate of the ICOI.
Dr. Patel has placed more than 5,000 implants, has published numerous articles in leading dental journals, and has worked as a lecturer and clinical consultant on dental implants and prosthetics for several companies. He maintains private practices in Lenoir and Mooresville, North Carolina.
As his patients become more educated and demanding, they not only want a tooth replacement for functionality and health, but also are specifically demanding exceptional esthetics. As per him, he is proof that experienced titanium surgeons can immediately incorporate modern ceramic implants into their practice with immediate success.
He believes that it’s about time to take a serious look at modern ceramic implants as a profitable health center for your practice. Like the rapidly growing $50 billion organic market, ceramic implants are here to stay.
Dr. Georgios Kotsakis
Dr. Georgios Kotsakis is an Associate Professor, Department of Periodontics
His research program focuses on delineating the complex interactions between host immune response, oral bacteria and dental biomaterials using human and murine models of oral inflammatory disease phenotypes. Our lab conducts research across the entire spectrum of translational research from basic discovery to human clinical trials and public health implementation. We are currently focusing on the study of the etiology of peri-implant inflammation, which is an inflammatory disease that leads to destruction of jawbone and implant failures. The basis of these investigations is a human-centered model of clinical immunology, which in combination with knock-out animal models, focuses on the effects that implant biomaterial degradation has on immune activation, non-resolving inflammation and cell death.
Currently, we are investigating caspase activation and downstream effects in immune cells sensitized by dental implant degradation products in an effort to understand why anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial agents that successfully resolve inflammation around teeth fail to resolve inflammatory lesions around dental implants.
