Dr. Ziv Mazor is one of Israel’s leading periodontists. He graduated from the periodontal department at the Hadassah School for Dental Medicine in Jerusalem, where he served as a clinical instructor and lecturer for undergraduate and postgraduate dental students.
Since 1993, Dr Mazor has been engaged in clinical research in the field of Bone Augmentation and Sinus Floor Elevation. He is currently participating in the quest for improving and evaluating new grafting materials, using various growth factors as well as researching “osseodensification”- a paradigm shift in dental implantology.
Dr. Mazor is a renowned author in dental implantology, and is known worldwide for his innovative approaches in cutting-edge procedures and technologies. He is a world known speaker and has lectured extensively both nationally and internationally.
Dr. Mazor is part of the continuing education faculty at the New York University and an Associate Professor at Titu Maiorescu University in Bucharest, Romania. He conducts and moderates advanced international implantology courses and workshops. He is the past President of the Israeli Periodontal Society.
Dr. Mazor maintains a private practice limited to periodontal and implant dentistry in Ra’anana, Israel.
Dental Implants had become an optimal solution for replacing missing teeth. Long term studies validate this treatment option in single as well as complete edentulous patients.
Bone resorption sometimes makes implant placement a difficult task both in anterior as well as posterior regions demanding advanced surgical regenerative procedures. In some situations it requires long term treatment with an unpredictable prognosis. Providing the patient with a fixed restorative temporary solution might sometimes be almost impossible.
The presentation will focus on the concept of using new innovative treatment approaches as well as unconventional surgical manipulations dealing with the atrophic ridge.
The new concept of “osseodensification” will be presented enabelling the clinician to preserve existing bone and enhance the outcome through a minimal invasive approach.
Osseodensification will enable the clinician to achieve higher primary implant stability and providing the patient with an immediate load temporary solution.
An emphasis will be made on the team approach required for these types of treatments working closely with the dental lab regarding digital treatment plan and immediate loading protocols.
