  • Utilizing OMSNIC closed-case examples, a panel comprised of practicing OMSs and an attorney will illustrate patient safety and risk management principles for the administration of office-based anesthesia. Code: ODAM21GS03

  • Digital technologies are being frequently used in treatment planning and surgery execution for implant surgery and restorations. The multiple technologies of 3D cone beam CT imaging, intra-oral scanning, laboratory scanning, 3D digital restorative design and CAM production have contributed to this trend. Analysis of important aspects related to treatment, communication with restorative referring colleagues and presentation of treatment plans to patients are some of the advantages of implementing a fully digital workflow in an OMS office. However, if one is not "digital literate," it may be confusing and time-consuming to make appropriate decisions on why to use it, how to select and purchase equipment and how to set up a practice office to fully benefit from the digital tools, making it cost-effective. The session will discuss the benefits and difficulties of digitally planned/guided implant surgeries and interface with conventional procedures, highlighting clinical indications. Code: ODAM21SS02

  • Surgical margins play an important role in the surgical treatment of a wide range of head and neck pathologies, ranging from benign pathology to advanced malignancies. The importance of surgical margins is magnified with diseases that require surgical intervention. Surgical margins are strong predictors in eradicating pathology, achieving long-term surgical cure and survival. It is important for the treating surgeon to tailor surgical margins to the specific pathology being treated, especially with the surgical margin as the only variable the surgeon can try to control. The treating surgeon needs to balance the adverse effects from over-resection leading to morbidity against leaving residual disease that might necessitate further surgery and recurrent disease and might affect overall patient survival. This session will discuss proper surgical margins for a variety of head and neck diseases and how to achieve them, starting with planning of these cases and surgical technique while elaborating on the role of frozen section and their pitfalls. Finally, the session will address recurrent disease and strategies to address it. Code: ODAM21SS27

  • Opioids are commonly prescribed for postoperative pain control after both minor and major surgical procedures. Minor oral surgical procedures, such as third molar removal, are often a patient's first exposure to surgery and first exposure to opioid medication. Although many times opioids are necessary for adequate pain management, data have shown many patients receive more opioids than are necessary to relieve pain after a minor procedure. This session will focus on strategies to reduce the amount of opioid medication prescribed for minor procedures in the oral and maxillofacial surgical practice. Alternative postoperative medications will be discussed. The use of injected submucosal medication to lessen the amount of postoperative analgesics needed also will be presented. The addition of innovative postoperative pain control approaches can help make the oral and maxillofacial surgical practice less reliant on opioid medication for pain management. Code: ODAM21GP4C

  • Maxillary defects can be the result of traumatic, infectious or pathological causes. No matter the cause of a maxillectomy defect, reconstruction is a difficult task. Reconstruction ranges from prosthetic obturation all the way to free-tissue transfer and everything in between. This session will discuss all the different options, including types of reconstruction, timing of reconstruction and clinical cases. Code: ODAM21SS46

  • Management of a maxillofacial surgery‚Äôs patient airway can be complex. Pathology, trauma or comorbid factors can make routine intubation impossible. An understanding of airway anatomy and surgical airway techniques is paramount for safe treatment of these patients. This session will give an overview of anatomy and surgical techniques for airway access. It also will discuss preoperative evaluation of patients and postoperative complications. Code: ODAM21SS37

  • The provision of dentoalveolar surgical procedures is the most common part of most oral and maxillofacial surgeons' practice. This session will focus on adjunctive procedures that can provide patients with improved outcomes and focus on aspects that can reduce complications. It also will include step-by-step clinical images and information so the OMS can integrate these procedures into practice. Topics to be reviewed include second molar uprighting procedures, marsupialization of large radiolucent lesions, coronectomy procedures (including indications, surgical procedure and long-term outcomes) as well as apical surgery (including current techniques and an algorithm for when to treat/when to extract). Code: ODAM21SS23

  • Numerous details are indispensable to achieve an excellent esthetic result in implant dentistry. Among them is the increasing need for bone and soft-tissue augmentation in the esthetic area in both vertical and horizontal aspects. However, these grafts can be applied at different moments of the treatment according to the clinical situation. Immediate or delayed implant placement, socket preservation procedures and staged grafts and implant placement are the possible choices to rehabilitate the esthetic zone. This session will review the surgically related factors that can influence the outcomes of treatments in the esthetic zone. Code: ODAM21SS22

  • The purpose of this session is to provide a brief review of the disease process and a comprehensive discussion of surgical and non-surgical approaches to improve a patient's TMD. Code: ODAM21SS47

  • Despite many advances in diagnosis and treatment, osteomyelitis of the jaws still presents a significant challenge to oral and maxillofacial surgeons. The disease management is complicated with the development of resistant microorganisms and the improper initial management by different specialties. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons play a significant role in the surgical management of osteomyelitis. This session will discuss the pathogenesis of osteomyelitis of the jaws and explain the current classification system of the disease. The disease's medical and surgical treatments and recent advances in diagnosis and surgical planning also will be presented. Code: ODAM21SS41
