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.

Live CE Webcast
Speaker: Edward Schlissel, DDS, MS
Course Date: July 27, 2017

4:00 – 5:00 PM EDT (New York)

3:00 PM (CDT), 2:00 PM (MDT), 1:00 PM (PDT)

Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:
The goal of implant therapy is to provide, in an efficient manner, a restorative solution that is long lasting, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. Proper diagnosis and treatment planning make this possible and lead to favorable outcomes. This program will include the presentation of a systematic approach to the examination of the patient and consideration of the biologic and mechanical requirements of implants and restorative materials, as well as the parameters for design and location of occlusal and interproximal contacts of implant restorations and their influence on outcomes.
Speaker: Edward Schlissel, DDS, MS
Course Date: July 27, 2017

7:00 – 8:00 PM EDT (New York)

6:00 PM (CDT), 5:00 PM (MDT), 4:00 PM (PDT)

Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:
Provisional crown restorations can be very helpful in the development of gingival contours during the healing phase of implant treatment. Properly done, at the appropriate stage of treatment, they will lead to predictable, aesthetically pleasing outcomes. The dental team must decide whether a provisional restoration can be placed immediately, at the time of implant placement. They must also decide whether the provisional restoration will be made directly in the mouth or outside the mouth on models that represent the clinical situation. This presentation will discuss the guidelines for choosing immediate or delayed placement of provisional restorations, and different methods for preparing provisional restorations.
Speaker: Edward Schlissel, DDS, MS
Course Date: August 24, 2017

4:00 – 5:00 PM EDT (New York)

3:00 PM (CDT), 2:00 PM (MDT), 1:00 PM (PDT)

Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:
Developing a plan for the treatment to replace some or all teeth in a dental arch requires careful consideration of many factors. These include the needs and desires of the patient, the requirements of implant placement for long term success, forces of occlusion, and the design characteristics of different types of restorations for partial and full arch restorations. This presentation includes a discussion of the appropriate indications for multiple single unit restorations, fixed partial dentures, and full arch restorations that are implant supported or implant retained. Improving the retention of overdentures with new attachments will be included.

Speaker: Robert del Castillo, DMD†
Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:

This program will concentrate on treatment guidelines for the achievement of aesthetics in implant dentistry. The top-down treatment planning approach to case preparation will be emphasized and advanced technologies focused on tissue contouring and preservation will be highlighted. This approach to treatment planning affords clinicians with the opportunity to deliver optimal aesthetic outcomes to their patients in oral rehabilitation.

Speaker: Suheil Boutros, DDS, MS†
Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:

This program will give the participants the opportunity to learn about different surgical protocols and techniques for complex treatment including sinus augmentation with simultaneous implant placement. Various sinus augmentation techniques will be explored including lateral window and crestal techniques as well as the use of piezo surgery. Various grafting materials will be discussed as well as the use of short implants to avoid the need for sinus augmentation in some cases.

Speaker: Vahik Paul Meserkhani, DDS, MSD†
Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:

Achieving optimal, predictable results with implant restorations may be one of the most challenging goals in implant dentistry. This program will present several challenging clinical scenarios involving missing teeth, as well as the surrounding hard and soft tissues in the aesthetic zone. Preoperative planning will be emphasized as a means of avoiding or minimizing surgical and/or restorative complications. Critical diagnostic steps will be discussed, including fabrication of surgical guides to optimize implant placement. The literature is replete with clinical guidelines relative to provisional restorations being critical in obtaining optimal results; provisional restorations are also important regarding abutment selection and design features, as well as establishing contours of the definitive restorations. Clinical situations will be illustrated where implant placement and/or tissue contours were not ideal and additional surgical interventions and prosthodontic modifications were needed to resolve the complications.
