Dr. Rasperini is Associate Professor of Dentistry and Periodontology at the Department of Biomedical, Surgical and Dental Sciences, University of Milan, Milan, Italy.
Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor at the Department of Periodontics and Oral Medicine at the School of Dentistry, University of Michigan MI USA.
Dr.Rasperini received his D.D.S. from the University of Pavia in 1990, his certificate of specialist in Orthodontics from the University of Milan in 1997, his certificate as Active Member of the Italian Society of Periodontology and Implantology (SIdP) in 1997. He later received his certificate as Active Member of the European Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (EAED) in 2009 and he became Full Member of the British Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry in 2016
Dr. Rasperini is member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry and is ad hoc reviewer in the editorial boards of multiple journals.
He has published and lectured extensively in the fields of Periodontology and Implantology, Regenerative Medicine, Surgical techniques for periodontal and peri-implant reconstruction.
Winner of Awards for research with his co-workes: International Quintessence Publishing Award (Boston 2000 – 2004), Goldman Prize (SIdP 1996 – 2010 – 2017), Clinical Research Award (EAO 2010), Earl Robinson Periodontal Regeneration Award (AAP 2012), Align Research Award (2013).
In 2017, he founded the iPerio Education Center in Piacenza, Italy, with Dr. Giorgio Pagni and Dr. Raffaele Acunzo, were they teach their philosophy of treatment and concepts of the modern dentistry.
In the last years the aesthetic demand from the patients has become the biggest challenge in Periodontology as well as in implant dentistry. Besides functional results is now important to achieve aesthetic success, particularly in the anterior areas, where the expectations of the patients are even higher.
The introduction of new biological concepts, biomaterials and new surgical techniques during the last years, such as Growth Factors, new Scaffolds, different minimally invasive approach and Papilla Preservation, makes possible to answer to the patient’s demands and change the prognosis of severely compromised teeth with predictable long-term results, moving forward the limits.
The Sequence of treatment, when other dental field are involved, such as Orthodontics, Prosthodontics, is a key factor to success.
A decision making of different clinical situation, based on the evidence will be analyzed during the presentation and the procedures will be shown in details.
In the last 25 years, periodontal regeneration have seen the development of different biomaterials and surgical techniques with the aim to make predictable the outcomes of regenerative therapy and to reduce as much as possible surgical complications including material exposure, tissue necrosis and loss of interdental tissue. These complications occur during healing phases and leads to an obvious compromised biologic, functional and aesthetic result. This presentation will show some clinical complication in periodontal regeneration, giving the possibility to the audience to discuss the reason of the failures, and elaborating the possible solutions.
