Course Details

Comprehensive Implant Treatment Planning (Fixed/Removable)

Treatment planning rationale, case selection and prosthetic pearls to optimize success rates will be addressed in detail. Emphasis of principles will be demonstrated on single tooth implant replacement and lower edentulous Overdenture applications.

The treatment planning phase for implant dentistry is the most critical component in Implantology. Rationale for a prosthetically and biomechanically driven treatment plan will be reviewed in detail. The number of implants, diameter, lengths, locations and other critical decision making steps will be reviewed in a systematic manner for various clinical cases:

• Treatment planning #1: single posterior molar
• Treatment planning #2: advanced anterior implant aesthetics
• Treatment planning #3: fully edentulous lower arch
Implant prosthetics and various occlusion concepts will be reviewed as well as the indications for facebows and articulators.

This module can be taken separately from the program.

Implant Surgical Principles

The surgical phase of Implantology demands precise implant placement locations with minimal trauma to the implant recipient site and for the patient. A didactic presentation will review the pearls of implant surgery along with the pre-surgical evaluation requirements.  A detailed review of the osteotomy preparation of drilling sequence will be supported and enforced with hands-on exercises.

Anatomically correct customized implant models will be used to practice and evaluate for implant placements (in all zones of the mouth) for reinforcement of principles of osteotomy preparations. Soft tissue manipulation and suturing techniques along with osteotomies will be prepared in pig’s jaws to simulate clinical settings.

Live patient demonstrations will be performed by a specialty instructor to further enhance the teaching process for the surgical phase of implant dentistry. In addition, procedural DVD’s, highlighting various surgical concepts, will be viewed by participants at the course and then copies given out for participants to bring home.

This module can be taken separately from the program.

Implant Prosthodontics & Occlusion for Implantology

The final treatment goals for implant dentistry is to replace or simulate the natural dentition with an artificial implant prosthesis. Our patients desire the benefits of teeth with aesthetic, phonetic, masticatory function, comfort and contour. These cases, especially full mouth reconstructions, with implant retained prosthesis can be challenging and time consuming if it is not done properly.

Program Exercises
● Pre-operative diagnostic record requirements
● Step-by-step review of all prosthetic protocols from implant uncovering to final insertion of prosthesis
● Open versus close tray impression techniques
● Implant provisionalization options with fixed versus removable
● Screw versus cement retained options
● Implant protected occlusal schemes for single tooth to full mouth fixed and removable implant retained prosthesis
● Management protocol for parafunctional habits
● Implant prosthetic maintenance requirements
● Management of implant prosthetic complications
● Hands-on will include: Immediate temporization for implants, locator attachments, verification jigs, open/close tray impressions, and screw vs. cement retained

This module can be taken separately from the program.

Comprehensive Implant Treatment Planning: (Fixed/Removable) didactic and hands-on models

The treatment planning phase for implant dentistry is the most critical component in implantology. Rationale for a prosthetically and biomechanically driven treatment plan will be reviewed in detail. The number of implants, diameter, lengths, locations and other critical decision-making steps will be reviewed in a systematic manner for various clinical cases.

Implant prosthetics sand various occlusion concepts will be reviewed as well as the indications for facebows and articulators.

Implant surgical principles: Hands-on models, pig mandibles & clinical videos

The surgical phase of Implantology demands precise implant placement locations with minimal trauma to the implant recipient site and for the patient. A didactic presentation will review the pearls of implant surgery along with the pre-surgical evaluation requirements. A detailed review of the osteotomy preparation of drilling sequence will be supported and enforced with hands-on exercises. Atraumatic extractions, instrumentation, flap designs, biologics, soft tissue manipulation and suturing techniques along with osteotomies will be prepared in pig’s jaws to simulate clinical settings.

Implant prosthodontics and occlusion for implantology: Hands-on models and clinical videos

The final treatment goals for implant dentistry is to replace or simulate the natural dentition with an artificial implant prosthesis. Our patients desire the benefits of teeth with esthetic, phonetics, masticatory, function, comfort and contour. These cases, especially full mouth reconstructions, with implant retained prosthesis can be challenging and time consuming if it is not done properly.
