Zimmer Biomet Institute

Zimmer Biomet Institute (ZBI) transforms the traditional classroom into a revolutionary learning facility. Each Zimmer Biomet Institute is equipped with the latest tools and advancements in implant dentistry as well as state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment. But what truly makes Zimmer Biomet Institute a world leader in dental education is our Simulated Patient Training Laboratory (SimLab).

ZBI’s SimLabs allow clinicians to practice real-life case scenarios, in their entirety, on one-of-a-kind, proprietary simulation patients. During each course, attendees practice multiple procedures on a variety of simulated patients, creating an accelerated learning experience that no other educational facility can replicate. Our industry-leading, advanced surgical cadaver courses also offer clinicians the unique ability to refine their skills by practicing complex procedures on human tissue.

Course Date: March 8, 2017 6:00 – 7:00pm EST or 8:00 – 9:00pm EST
Continuing Education: CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE): 1 Credit
This program will identify the most practical digital solutions that can be used in implant dentistry. The benefits and limitations of digital planning, digital surgical placement, digital impressions, digital design and manufacturing, digital occlusal analyses and follow up will be discussed. Multiple clinical cases will be used to illustrate the concepts being presented. As the digital influence continues to grow in implant dentistry, so do changes to work flow and protocols. Utilizing the latest techniques and protocols allows for a streamlined approach for predictable outcomes. To further enhance a practitioner’s success, the need to understand the latest in ceramics, adhesives and cements will allow a predictable outcome that meets high patient demands of function and aesthetics.

Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:

CAD/CAM implant frameworks have proven to be more accurate, biocompatible, and longer lasting, with fewer complications than cast-metal frameworks. This webinar will review advances in CAD/CAM protocols and their resulting benefits, including decreased labor costs, improved long-term results due to better physical properties, improved accuracy, and decreased frequency of prosthetic complications.

Course Objective:

At the completion of the program, participants should be able to:

  • •Identify anterior/posterior spreads on master casts and explain how they relate to framework design.
  • •Design full-arch frameworks using evidenced-based parameters including metal design, retentive elements, prosthesis type, and cantilever length.
  • •Troubleshoot problems associated with long-term, full-arch, implant prostheses.
  • •Explain the mechanical properties of various materials used in CAD/CAM protocols.

Course Overview:

Dental practitioners and their staff are faced with treatment planning decisions to replace missing teeth. Geared toward the entire dental team, this program presents information that can enable participants to offer their patients a highly successful alternative to restoring edentulous spaces. This program, reviewing myriad scenarios seen in everyday practice, explores the possibilities and benefits implant dentistry can afford to patients.

Course Objective:

At the completion of the program, participants should be able to:

  • •Identify candidates and plan treatment for dental implants
  • •Discuss with patients the options involved in potential implant scenarios
  • •Describe an effective method for restoring the edentulous mandible in accordance with the 2002 McGill Consensus Statement on overdentures
  • •Compare the benefits of an implant prosthesis versus a conventional three-unit fixed bridge
Speaker: Carl Drago, DDS, MS, FACP†
Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:

Many edentulous patients can now undergo outpatient surgical and prosthetic procedures and return to nearly normal masticatory function in as little as one day. This program will review the principles associated with immediate occlusal loading and illustrate an accelerated prosthodontic treatment protocol used for treatment of edentulous and partially edentulous patients with interim and definitive prostheses.

Course Objective:

At the completion of the program, participants should be able to:

  • •List the anatomical and emotional characteristics of patient with debilitated dentition and edentulous jaws.
  • •Arrange for appropriate diagnostic tests and determine the tooth positions required for full-arch immediate acrylic, screw-retained prostheses
  • •Discuss the above parameters with surgeons and dental laboratory technicians.
  • •Understand the clinical steps associated with the surgical and prosthetic aspects of immediate full-arch occlusal loading
