This seminar will focus on the interactive role of the surgical, restorative and technical teams in optimal implant therapy in the highly sensitive aesthetic zone. Dr. Sonia Leziy, periodontist, and Dr. Brahm Miller, prosthodontist, will present on how an effective and evolving partnership between the surgical and restorative team is fundamental to success in implant therapy. This session will illustrate the impact of the periodontist’s decisions and surgical techniques on esthetics as well as integration success, and the impact on the restorative outcome as viewed by a prosthodontist.
- Review the emerging hard tissue enhancement procedures used in surgical practice today. Recognize what the surgical team can do, but understand the current limitations of tissue regeneration.
- Understand how to position implants in the esthetic zone from the restoring dentist’s perspective.
- Illustrate the importance of the biotype and tissue volume: enhancing tissue stability and prosthetic development of the transmucosal area.
- Recognize the impact of implant design and surface treatment on crestal bone stability;
- Provisionalization: why is it so important? How should provisionals be designed and refined? Techniques used during surgery will be contrasted with conventional restorative protocols.
- Cementation vs. screw-retention: working closely with the surgical team member and the technician to minimize complications with peri-implant tissue health as well as restoration design and material handling.
- Review today’s restorative material options; understand the strengths and limitations of our product options.
Tickets to this seminar will be available for registration/purchase starting on October 25, 2014
