Simple and complex cases must be properly diagnosed followed by a detailed treatment plan and meticulous executions. To achieve the desired goals, everybody must be on the same page. This lecture will focus on cases that have encountered poor treatment planning and execution, their respective treatment with a discorded team and the attempt to minimize compromised results.

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

  • Consequences of improper diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Complications when treatment planning and execution do not coincide.
  • Complications when patient dictates treatment.
  • Complications when the treating team has different goals.
  • Understanding how often objectives should be re-evaluated.

Rarely does a patient present with a missing tooth that requires implant tooth replacement without the need of some adjunctive augmentation procedure.  Also, when removing teeth to prepare the patient for implant placement, grafting is often indicated rather than immediate implant placement.  The purpose of this presentation is to discuss latest findings in the realm of single site grafting and biomaterials.

Objectives:

  1. Review the evolution of biomaterials for implant site preparation procedures.
  2. Discuss accurate diagnosis as the deal maker when it comes to choosing suitable biomaterials.
  3. Share original research in biomaterials for implant site preparation procedures.

We all see patients who have loss of their anterior teeth either at an early age or later on in life.  Dental restoration have a finite life expectancy and when they fail often lead to loss of soft and hard tissue.  Implants placed in the anterior maxilla may fail for a variety of reasons, with similar loss of tissue.  This presentation will attempt to demonstrate which preoperative conditions lead to excellent esthetic results with fixed prosthetics with no need of pink gingival substitutes.  It will also show patients who must have prosthetic materials to substitute for loss of tissue.  The use of digital planning combined with cone beam imaging can lead us to refine implant placement with navigation methods. Multiple case examples will be shown.

At the end of this presentation the attendee will:

  1. Understand what pre-operative factors lead to esthetic success.
  2. Understand what deformities are predictably resulting in no need for pink gingival substitutes.
  3. Be able to utilize digital planning and navigation to accurately and precisely place implants with the final restoration guiding the surgery.

Restoration of the edentulous patient with fixed restorations has the potential for providing the utmost satisfaction both functionally, aesthetically and physiologically for our patients.  However, there have been many proposed surgical and prosthetic solutions over the years, confusing clinicians and patients alike.  The purpose of this presentation is to discuss surgical and restorative protocols which are biologically additive and predictable for this group of patients.

At the end of the program, participants should be able to:

  • Understand diagnosis and treatment planning of the edentulous patient, including the number and position of dental implants.
  • Enhance bone formation and soft tissue thickness and biotype through bioengineering and rejuvenation.
  • Discuss appropriate long-term restorative material selection for predictable functional outcomes.

The Denver Implant Study Club was launched in 2003.  What has changed in implant therapy since then?  What hasn’t changed is the challenge of meeting both patient and clinician aesthetic and functional expectations.  The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the literature and clinical realities of dental implant therapy and complications and how we can apply what we have learned toward improved treatment planning and clinical procedures.

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

  1. Have an improved understanding of dental implant treatment planning in the aesthetic and posterior zones.
  2. Understand common complications and pitfalls.
  3. Discuss immediate provisionalization alternatives.
  4. Discuss current workflow utilizing guided surgery to help achieve improved outcomes.
