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: Jimmy Rivers, DMD, MHS and Henry Martin, CDT
Course Date: October 25, 2017

7:00 – 8:00 PM PDT (Los Angeles)

8:00 PM (CDT), 9:00 PM (MDT), 10:00 PM (EDT)

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.

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.
