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.

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.

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.

Course Date: August 24, 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:
Planning for a full-arch immediate provisional restoration should be a collaborative effort between the restorative dentist, surgical specialist, and technical laboratory. The aesthetic and functional requirements of the prosthesis must be considered when determining the number and locations of the implants providing support. The criteria for immediate function must be recognized and proper instructions given to the patient for postoperative care. This presentation will include discussion of these elements of full-arch provisional restorations.
Speaker: Bruce Ouellette, DDS
Course Date: September 12, 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:
This program will review the advantages and disadvantages of screw-retained versus cement-retained implant-supported restorations with an emphasis on cement-retained prostheses. Clinical reports regarding prosthetic and biologic potential complications associated with cement-retained restorations will be reviewed including incidences of peri-implant mucositis, peri-implantitis, occlusion, and crestal bone loss. The benefits and limitations of cement-retained single- and multiple-implant restorations will be illustrated, along with techniques to assure optimal fit between abutments and implant restorative platforms. Guidelines will be presented for proper techniques to employ for the fabrication and placement of cement-retained restorations.
Speaker: Jimmy Rivers, DMD, MHS and Henry Martin, CDT
Course Date: October 25, 2017

Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:
Full arch rehabilitation of the edentulous arch with fixed restorations will provide satisfaction to patients seeking care after loss of their dentition. For the clinician to be successful with the restoration and achieve patient satisfaction, treatment planning and procedures must be done with attention to detail. The dental technician and laboratory have a vital role in the overall success of the case. The restorative doctor and laboratory technician should work closely together from treatment planning through delivery of the restoration. This program will discuss the essential communication and roles that the dentist and technician each have to provide quality care.
Speaker: Robert del Castillo, DMD
Course Date: November 7, 2017

8:00 – 9:00 PM EDT (New York)

7:00 PM (CDT), 6:00 PM (MDT), 5:00 PM (PDT)

Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:
This presentation will outline the clinical steps required for successful planning and execution by the implant team to deliver full arch implant-supported provisional restorations at the time of implant placement. CT technology and current computer software applications greatly enhanced the ability of the implant team to diagnose, treatment plan, and perform implant-supported therapy in a more sophisticated and profound way with greater accuracy, lower morbidity, and in shorter timeframes to meet patients’ demands. In the program, a CT guided implant treatment protocol will be discussed for fabrication of a laboratory processed full arch restoration to be delivered at the time of implant placement.
