DR. PAUL FUGAZZOTTO received his D.D.S. from New York University in 1979 and a certificate in advanced graduate studies in periodontology from Boston University in 1981. Since that time Dr. Fugazzotto has maintained a private practice in periodontics and implant therapy in Milton, Massachusetts. Dr. Fugazzotto has authored or co-authored over 90 articles in refereed scientific journals, as well as authoring a monograph entitled "Guided Tissue Regeneration: Maximizing Clinical Results" and three textbooks including "Decision Making in Regenerative and Implant Therapies" and "Periodontal Restorative Interrelationships: Maximizing Treatment Outcomes". Dr. Fugazzotto is an active member of many organizations and is a Fellow of the International Team of Implantology. Dr. Fugazzotto is a Senior Editor of "Implant Realities" and the past US ITI Study Club Coordinator. Dr. Fugazzotto is a visiting lecturer at Harvard University and Tufts University Schools of Dentistry. Dr. Fugazzotto lectures nationally and internationally on a multitude of topics.
Utilizing a combination of interactive discussion, observation of live surgery and immediate full arch fixed conversions, hands-on exercises, and lecture materials, this comprehensive two-day course demonstrates an effective team approach. To help both your patients, and your practice.
While bone regenerative techniques to afford the clinician the opportunity to attain previously undreamt of treatment outcomes, specific protocols must be followed to ensure maximization of therapeutic results with minimization of patient morbidity. Through a combination of observation of six live surgeries, extensive lecture material, roundtable discussion, and hands-on exercises with fresh human cadavers, course participants will become well versed in the indications, contraindications, and execution of all augmentation treatment options.
In a physically healthy patient, regeneration of 6 mm of bone buccally and 3 mm of bone vertically is highly predictable. Implant failure rates, including “failing” immobile implants, should be less than 1 percent after 10 years in function. Achieving such results requires expansion of diagnostic protocols, incorporation of more comprehensive treatment modalities, stricter definitions of regenerative and implant success, an evolved understanding of the impact of implant dimensions, composition and configuration on treatment outcomes, and the utilization of only the finest regenerative, implant and restorative materials. The net result is the creation of a more comprehensive patient – treatment dialectic, the maximization of treatment outcomes and the minimization of patient trauma.
