Dental implant therapy for the edentulous patient is a treatment modality with the potential of significantly improving the quality of our patient’s lives.  However, when complications occur, the outcome for the patient and surgical-restorative team can be frustrating, difficult to manage and costly for all involved.  Dr. Aldo Leopardi’s objective for this presentation is to discuss the clinical realities and challenges of restoration of the edentulous patient with implant retained and supported prostheses.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Have an improved understanding of dental implant complications as reported in the literature.
  2. Update on treatment planning of the edentulous patient for fixed and removable restorations.
  3. Understand the role material selection and prosthetic design plays in minimizing complications.

PRESENTER: Mark Spatzner, DMD, Periodontist, Montreal, Quebec

This presentation will focus on bone height, width and sloped ridges.  An array of therapeutic options is available for managing these scenarios, including ridge augmentation, sinus augmentation in the maxilla, nerve repositioning in the mandible.  Short or narrow implants have been systematically evaluated as minimally invasive alternatives to bone augmentation in sites with vertical or horizontal alveolar ridge atrophy with favorable clinical outcomes.  Sloped implants may also be applied for situations with sloped crest or for immediate placement into sockets with scalloped bone. Specially designed implants are able to adapt to the compromised anatomy, engaging 100% of the implant in bone without the need for bone augmentation.  The clinical versatility and success of these products will be the focus of this presentation paying particular attention to the biomechanical, surgical, prosthetic and esthetic considerations.

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the role of implant biology, biomechanics and surface technology and how it relates to longevity in successful implant therapy.
  • Understand how advancements in technology are allowing for simpler and more predictable incorporation of implant therapy into the practice.
  • Recognize the significant changes in implant design that affect surgical and restorative outcomes.

Event Details

PRESENTER: Daniel R. Cullum, DDS, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon

Current evidence-based minimally invasive techniques will be presented for immediate management of maxillary and mandibular molars extraction sites. Implant designs, CBCT diagnosis and planning, the role of dynamic navigation, grafting and adjunctive crestal sinus elevation at maxillary extraction sites will be discussed.  We can safely offer patients immediate implant reconstruction with restoration after four months.  These patient-centric treatment options are predictable, desired by patients and extremely rewarding.

Objectives:
- As a surgical and restorative team, provide safe and predictable immediate treatment options to patients.
- Discuss grafting procedures, materials and management of anatomic defects in immediate molar implant placement.
- Understand the role of crestal sinus elevation techniques to facilitate immediate implant placement.

PRESENTER: Achraf SouayahDDS, Tunis, Tunisia.

Comprehensive Surgical-Restorative Workflow for Bio-Esthetic integration of Implant Supported Restorations

Description

The demand for creating esthetic restorations has become a consistent theme in the dental literature and in daily clinical practice.  The creation of implant restorations with harmonious gingival contours that emulate nature is a fusion of science and art.  Understanding the biologic and physiologic limitations of soft and hard tissues along with ideal implant positioning facilitates predictability in both routine and complex esthetic situations. 

This presentation focuses on:

  • Current implant treatment philosophies and methodologies for the replacement of missing or failing teeth to restore function as well as esthetics.
  • Comprehensive description of different protocols currently utilized in daily practice, including a discussion of the treatment rationale and technique considerations. 
  • Predictable esthetic management of high-risk and compromised sites, demonstrating the use of contemporary interdisciplinary strategies for the treatment of peri-implant esthetic dilemmas to minimize complications.
  • Discussion of new age bone and soft tissue management concepts, potential issues and a focus on new clinical protocols.

Event Details

PRESENTER: Dr. Mark Ludlow, DMD

As digital technology becomes more pervasive in everyday practice, there is an increased demand to apply it in ever more expanding clinical situations. This presentation will help demystify the full application of digital technology in the implant patient from initial diagnostics to the final restoration. We will explore digital applications and workflows for all phases of implant dentistry including both surgical and prosthetic applications. 

  • Become familiar with practical digital treatment protocols for your practice.
  • Understand how digital technologies can enhance treatment outcomes and reduce chair time 
  • Predictably implement and execute digital implant treatment plans in everyday clinical practice
