This program for the dental laboratory technician will focus on new digital technologies for the fabrication of patient-specific CAD/CAM abutments for implant-supported restorations with the BellaTek® Encode® Impression System. The benefits of becoming an Encode Empowered Laboratory will be explored including scan and design control, reduced turnaround times, access to proprietary software for abutment design, abutment material flexibility, and cost effective milling options. The communication between the restorative dentist and commercial dental laboratory will be discussed, including the workflow starting from data capture with an intraoral scanner, through abutment design and fabrication of the restoration.
This program will illustrate through clinical examples, long-term success and failures associated with prosthetic implant restorations. Original concepts in diagnosis, treatment planning, and therapies will be compared to modern day treatment concepts and principles, especially regarding advances in equipment and technologies. Evidenced-based treatment successes will be illustrated for fixed, removable, and single-unit implant restorations.
This program has been designed for the dental team and will focus on digital technologies for the fabrication of CAD/CAM abutments for implant-supported restorations with the BellaTek® Encode® Impression System. The benefits and limitations for this system will be explained in terms of patient comfort and efficiencies for patients, staff members, and dental laboratory technicians. This technology is considered to have a “wow” factor for the practices that have adopted it.
This program will provide an overview of basic to intermediate implant restorative options; immediate restorative protocols will also be illustrated; it has been designed for clinicians to comfortably and predictably provide patients with implant restorative treatment options in the anterior aesthetic zone. The program will include treatment planning and design/fabrication of surgical guides. This seminar will also identify areas where custom implant impression copings should be considered for use for anterior implant restorations where the copings are used to capture soft tissue emergence profiles of the peri-implant soft tissues.
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.
This program will provide a literature-based, systematic approach aimed at helping clinicians with treatment planning and the decision-making process for patients who would benefit from implant-supported overdenture therapy. The discussion will include an overview of the key clinical steps necessary for providing this care.
In the sea of information available in implant dentistry, there is little time taken to explain, understand, and implement the proper interaction of a prosthetic with its counterpart. Occlusion in implant dentistry can be relatively simple but time must be taken to understand some basic principles. This program will help shed some light on how a well-managed occlusion can lead to greater long-term success, both biologically as well as prosthetically.
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.
Current trends in implant dentistry lead to the search for aesthetics, minimal-invasiveness, and short treatment times. This program will present new techniques that allow the clinician to achieve these three objectives with simple, predictable procedures while maintaining a success rate equal to a standard-staged approach. Complex cases previously treated with more invasive procedures, and long treatment times can be solved today with simple, predictable, straight forward techniques. New protocols, practical tips, and preliminary data from clinical studies will be presented and analyzed with the aim to give to the participants’ the knowledge and tools to successfully implement in their daily practice.
This program will present an introduction to innovative, new treatment approaches that may accelerate orthodontic treatment, and prevent dehiscence defects and gingival recession caused by orthodontic arch expansion. The rationale for this technique will be discussed, as well as advantages and disadvantages, and a review of graft material selection for alveolar ridge augmentation, and the application of these materials and augmentation techniques prior to, and during, active orthodontic treatment.
The introduction of intraoral digital scanners for use with coded healing abutments has eliminated the need for traditional impressions. Instead, the scanner data can be used to create a three-dimensional digital model of a coded healing abutment in the patient’s mouth. Abutment design can be greatly enhanced, and the interval between impression making and delivery of the computer-milled titanium definitive abutment/restoration can be significantly compressed. This program will review the steps involved in using intraoral scanning technology to create definitive, CAD/CAM patient-specific implant supported restorations. Benefits and limitations of scanners currently available will be discussed, along with design principles used in CAD/CAM abutment design.
