Program Title: Innovative Clinical Practices: Designing for Life

Jay Malmquist

Dr. Jay Malmquist

Topic: "In it for the long term: Historical insight and recent innovations"

We are at a unique period in our profession where dental implant therapy and ancillary treatment has reached tenure and where, for some, a lifetime of experience has been achieved. With recent procedures and technologies, this presentation will illustrate the long-term continuum of patient care and the professional pursuit of evidence-based dentistry. In essence, how does what we know today affect the treatment protocol for patients with respect to the philosophy, "Designing for Life"?

Hassa Moghadam

Dr. Hassan Moghadam

Topic: "Extreme maxillas: Searching for bone"

The aim of this presentation is to demonstrate a surgical protocol to treat the severely resorbed maxilla where the alternative would be an autogenous hip graft or zygomatic implants. We use a bilateral sinus lift and floor of nose lift. Implants and bone graft (non-autogenous bone) are used. Then a NobelProcera™ bar overdenture is placed to splint the implants for a removable prosthesis. This is in contrast to the conventional technique. Today, with the advanced biological surfaces, osseointegration can occur in severely compromised sites; therefore, the actual amount of bone required for a successful prosthesis may be less than previously thought.

Hurson Steve

Mr. Steve Hurson

Topic: "Tilted implants: The biophysics with a live demonstration"

This presentation includes a novel demonstration of the loading dynamics on splinted tilted implants. The concept of tilting implants has been documented and scientifically validated as an optimal solution for maximizing patient quality of life with a minimally invasive procedure. But how does it work? Discussion will range from the evolution of traditional full-arch treatment to the contemporary options available today, highlighted by a live technical demonstration.

Latest Innovations from Nobel Biocare

We invite you to visit us at the Nobel Biocare booth to learn more about how we can support you in your daily work. This year, come to experience our latest innovations including NobelActive 3.0, NobelReplace® Conical Connection, NobelReplace® Platform Shifting, All-on-4 and NobelClinician. While at the booth, consult with world-renowned experts and users of these and other Nobel Biocare products.

NobelReplace Conical Connection and platform Shift

More options, same original body: NobelReplace® Conical Connection and Platform Shift

  • Two new connections to choose from.
  • Designed to maximize soft tissue volume.
  • Established and clinically proven tapered implant body.

NobelActive 3.0

Smaller and stronger: NobelActive 3.0

  • Safe implant placement in areas with limited space.
  • Maximum material strength and strong sealed connection.
  • High initial stability and bone preservation.


All-on-4: The efficient treatment concept with immediate loading

  • Stability even in minimum bone volume.
  • Can be planned and performed using the NobelGuide treatment concept, ensuring accurate diagnostics, planning and implant placement.
  • Immediate implant-supported restoration, as a provisional prosthesis is screwed onto the implants right after surgery.
  • Efficient treatment flow results in shorter treatment times and improved patient satisfaction.


NobelClinician Software

Fast and safe: NobelClinician Software

  • User-friendly diagnostic and treatment planning solution efficient online collaboration with treatment partners.
  • Present treatment options to your patient
  • Available on Mac OS® X and Windows®

Dr . Jay Malquist, DMD

Jay P Malmquist D.M.D. is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with advanced training and experience with dental implants, bone regeneration, and bone grafting. His deep concern for his patients is matched only by his diligent study of innovations in his specialty. He has authored numerous articles and several chapters in textbooks on Implants, bone grafting and bone regeneration. Dr. Malmquist also lectures nationally and internationally on implant surgery and bone grafting. He has given more than five hundred major lectures throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. He pursued extensive research on bone physiology and regeneration at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia and is now actively engaged in research protocols in the evolution of bone proteins and bone grafting techniques. The focus of his private practice in Portland, Oregon includes bone grafting, bone regeneration, and dental implant surgery. Dr. Malmquist traveled to Sweden early in his career and trained with the original founder of the concepts of osseointegration and implant reconstruction. Dr. Malmquist is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, an honor bestowed only after extensive written and oral examinations. He then served as an examiner for the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for seven years, a honor bestowed on few Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Dr. Malmquist is on the staff at several Portland-area hospitals providing trauma support for maxillofacial injuries. As a Fellow of the American College of Dentists and the International College of Dentists, he is honored and recognized by his colleagues in dentistry. He has shared his knowledge with others as a professor at Oregon Health Science University, contributing to the education of students and residents in the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Dr. Malmquist has distinguished himself as the first Treasurer and first President of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons from the Pacific Northwest. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons represent more than 8000 surgeons throughout the United States. He has also been honored with visiting professorships at the University of California, University of Tennessee, University of Nebraska, University of Alabama, University of Indiana and the University of Minnesota. He is currently a member of the Board of the Academy of Osseointegration.

Dr. Hassan Moghadam

Dr. Moghadam completed his dental training at McGill University followed by a multidisciplinary residency at the Royal Victoria Hospital. He then established a private practice in Vancouver, BC, limiting his practice to periodontal surgery and implants. He completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training at the University of Toronto and pursued a Masters in Science in the field of bone regeneration. He has lectured and published both nationally and internationally in the field of bone grafting and soft tissue surgery. His lecture series is dedicated to the regeneration of perimplant tissues. His current research interests include developing a nerve detector to prevent nerve injury during implant placement (patent pending) and manufacturing an organic source of BMP at the University of Ottawa. He is on the Health Canada National Surveillance Committee which is involved in regulating cells, tissues and organ transplants in Canada.
