November 17 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Examining the advancements in contemporary implant dentistry: Enhancing patient care through innovative concepts and techniques.
This presentation will explore how innovations and concept changes shape our skills and treatment planning solutions while underscoring the importance of collaborative planning between restoring dentists, technicians and surgical team members.
Surgical concepts that will be reviewed include virtual planning and guided surgery/provisional treatment, implant placement and restoration strategies for small and large edentulous sites, and management of hard and soft tissue deficiencies. Current diagnostic guidelines and methods to monitor health and our approaches to reduce and mitigate disease risk will be discussed.
The following learning objectives will be explored in this presentation:
- Peri-implant diseases and complications: understand, minimize and manage them.
- Recognize why digital workflows are dramatically improving accuracy and practice efficiency while reducing errors in the treatment planning phase, surgical protocols and restorative design.
- Deciding on immediate, early or delayed implant placement and restoration protocols. Recognize the pros and cons of these decisions. The use and fabrication of customized transitional restorative components in the hands of the periodontist or restoring clinician: Why they are important steps in guiding tissue form.
- Soft and hard tissue enhancement procedures are used in surgical practice today. Recognize what the surgical team can do, but understand the limitations.
