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.
Patients with debilitated dentition often seek rehabilitation to quickly regain their confidence and quality of life. Immediate full-arch restoration can be an excellent solution for meeting patient demands and expectations. This program will provide an overview of this treatment modality, including a step-by-step, practical approach to delivering a provisional full-arch prosthesis on the day of implant placement, as well as the steps necessary to develop an aesthetic, functional definitive prosthesis.
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.
This webcast will present the biologic events regarding socket sites post extraction of teeth. It will include a classification of socket and alveolar ridge defects, as well as decision making regarding the best time to graft, and the criteria for graft material selection; the biology of healing for different graft materials and the lengths of time required for healing. This program will be of particular interest for general practitioners regarding diagnosis and assessment of clinical conditions and whether or not the patient needs to be referred to a surgical specialist. The goal of comprehensive treatment will be to meet individual patient needs, with excellent sustainable esthetic and functional outcomes. Numerous clinical cases will be illustrated.
Patients with debilitated or missing dentitions often seek rehabilitation to quickly regain masticatory function, aesthetics, and quality of life. Clinicians can now predictably offer treatment solutions for immediate full arch restorations to meet patient demands and expectations. This is followed by the design, fabrication, and delivery of the definitive prosthesis. This program will present a step-by-step approach to fabrication of the provisional restoration as well as the definitive restoration, from a laboratory perspective.
Peri-implantitis is an emerging problem that affects between 11% and 47% of implant patients. It is generally accepted that peri-implant mucositis is a precursor to peri-implantitis. The anatomy of the peri-implant tissues largely depends on the position of the implant, the implant system used, and the clinical/prosthetic protocol followed. The design of the definitive implant abutment can be digitally enhanced to respect the biological space and prevent peri-implant breakdown. This program will review current knowledge about the causes of peri-implant disease, prevention strategies to prevent problems before they develop, including the selection of an implant system to help mitigate the risk of peri-implant disease.
Some dental patients present with the singular goal of ending painful dental emergencies. Or they may be seeking limited solutions to cosmetic problems. However dentists have a responsibility to offer such patients a thorough plan for restoring their mouths to optimal health. This webinar will describe the use of a six-step protocol for phasing comprehensive dental therapy.
This program will identify restorative volume (space) requirements for full arch fixed/removable, implant restorations. Literature citations will be identified and used for clinicians and dental laboratory technicians to make evidence-based decisions regarding restorative treatment parameters involved in treating full arch patients with fixed and removable implant restorations. Treatment planning guidelines will be identified, as well as clinical scenarios where adequate restorative volume (space) has been generated. Clinical situations where adequate restorative volume (space) was not provided will also be identified; clinical remedies will be illustrated.
Delivering aesthetic immediate and long-term implant restorations on a consistently predictable basis can be challenging. As single and two-stage protocols have given way to immediate implant placement and immediate restoration, biomechanical requirements and aesthetic demands have evolved. This webinar will review changes in treatment planning, implant site preparation and immediate restoration of implants in the aesthetic zone.
This program will concentrate on treatment guidelines for achieving optimal aesthetics in implant dentistry. This treatment planning approach will emphasize case preparation with appropriate diagnostics, assessment, and development of custom treatment options on a case-by-case basis. Advanced technologies that focus specifically on tissue contouring and preservation will be highlighted.
In addition to the actual clinical procedures, diagnosis and treatment planning, as well as decision making, are essential elements for clinicians to consider in implant treatment. This process requires balancing patient preferences and finances with a number of clinical factors. The team approach to implant therapy is essential to ensure patient satisfaction and optimal outcomes. This webinar will illustrate some of the diagnostics needed prior to considering implant treatment. Treatment options will be illustrated and discussed through a variety of clinical case examples.
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.
