MINIMALLY INVASIVE ALTERNATIVES TO IMPLANT PLACEMENT
Dr Francesc Abella
The program is designed and open to any profile of dentist who wants to expand their vision of saving teeth and establish reliable digital protocols to carry out all these procedures.
MINIMALLY INVASIVE ALTERNATIVES TO IMPLANT PLACEMENT:
AUTOTRANSPLANTATION AND INTENTIONAL REPLANTATION.
INTERNAL/EXTERNAL OR COMBINED APPROACH OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF DENTAL RESORPTION
Tooth autotransplantation consists of extracting a tooth from its original position to place it in an edentulous area of the same individual. A successfully transplanted tooth can behave exactly like any other tooth, which is why this technique has become a viable treatment option to replace a tooth with a poor prognosis, or directly to replace a missing tooth.
During the presentation we will address a multitude of cases, both donor teeth with open apex and closed apex, and we will teach step by step to follow a strict protocol that will lead us to success. We will show from the most classic techniques to the most current ones in which we use digital planning, 3D replicas and guided splints to be more precise and reduce the extraoral time of the donor tooth. At the end of the presentation, we will dedicate a few minutes to the most advanced or complex cases, such as cases of autotransplantation of impacted canines or with simultaneous elevation of the maxillary sinus.
However, the autotransplantation technique includes two additional procedures that we will also discuss, namely surgical extrusion and intentional replantation. These two procedures can also be applied to treat different types of resorptions.
Currently, resorptions (external/internal with different sub-classifications) are part of everyday life in our consultations. Knowing how to make an adequate differential diagnosis is the starting point to know how to approach them and to be able to grant an accurate prognosis to our patients. We will talk about the different types through clinical cases and illustrations to explain the whole process well.

Dr. Abella has given several lectures, courses and hands-on courses worldwide and he also works in a private practice limited to endodontics and restorative dentistry in Barcelona. In clinical endodontics his areas of special interest include cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in Endodontics, microcomputed tomography, dental anatomy, dental traumatology, periapical pathology, adhesive restorations, restoration of root-canal-treated teeth, and autotransplantion and replantation techniques.
Beside his work in private practice he is lecturing on Endodontics throughout Spain and other countries, is actually involved in endodontic research projects in the post-graduate endodontic program of the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya, Spain. He is author of several papers in peer-reviewed journals. Part of the expert committee convened by the European Society of Endodontology (ESE) on the use of CBCT. Dr. Abella is also an active member of the Spanish Association of Endodontics (AEDE) and currently secretary of the Spanish Society of Conservative and Aesthetic Dentistry (SEOC).
