The Intricacies of Immediate Implant Surgery: Details that Result in Long-Term Excellence
This lecture will delineate the vast array of hopeless clinical situations resolved with one-day extraction, implant placement, temporization with simultaneous regeneration of bone and preservation and enhancement of soft tissue architecture. This is the “patient preferred” treatment, one surgery with an invisible transition to implants. Patients retain smile esthetics throughout treatment. This program will empower clinicians with the very best, expeditious and successful treatment for replacement of the hopeless tooth or teeth with implant solutions. "Teeth Out, Implants In, Esthetics Retained, Solution in Place."
Full-arch rehabilitation with tilted implants
In the late 1990s, knowledge of bone physiology and the biomechanics of implants provided insights to clinician to practice immediate loading procedures. In an article published in 2007, “Single mandibular first molar implants with flapless guided surgery and immediate function: Preliminary clinical and radiographic results of a prospective study, stated that safe replacement of single mandibular first molars with an immediate prosthesis is possible with flapless surgery and premanufactured individualized abutments and crowns. Further defining the practical approach to obtaining high survival rates in immediate loading with guided surgery. In 2000, articles demonstrating the biomechanics of utilizing tilted implants was a starting pointing for many research groups on advancing in full-arch rehabilitation, this led to a technique and protocol by Professor Malo in 2003.

Dennis Tarnow
DDS
Interdisciplinary Management of Problem AEsthetic Cases
The treatment planning of complex cases requires the highest level of knowledge and skill of the treating team. It is an orchestration of procedures including proper sequencing and timing that makes the difference. An envisionment of the final case before starting is required to know where the goal of treatment will be directed. This, in conjunction with the patients’ needs and clinical situation, comprises the decision-making process for what is the best treatment for the patient. Problems facing the team such as: Which teeth to save or extract? Should implants be placed immediately or in a delayed protocol? Should multiple implants be placed in the aesthetic zone? When and how to include orthodontics if needed for sight development? Should pink ceramic be used or should ridge augmentation be performed? Should the case be splinted or broken up into separate bridges or individual teeth? How to provisionalize the case throughout treatment? When to immediate load cases versus do a serial extraction case? These concerns will be addressed in this interdisciplinary approach to our most challenging cases.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Describe the aesthetic risk factors for treatment of anterior teeth

  • Indicate different uses of ceramics as final prosthesis

  • Discuss tissue modifications around teeth and implants

  • Provisionalization of cases throughout the treatment

Graft-Avoiding full-arch rehabilitation of atrophic maxilla
Edentulous patients as well as individuals with failing dentition who demand fixed prosthetic rehabilitation face time-consuming, uncomfortable, and costly bone grafting procedures. For patients and dental clinicians treating them, the perceived complexity of rehabilitation is perhaps one of the most difficult obstacles to overcome on the road to treatment acceptance. Graft-avoiding concepts represent a streamlined approach to treatment with elimination of grafting and utilizing minimal armamentarium available in most surgical offices. To be successful, clinicians must recognize the absolute requirements that must be satisfied in all cases. During this lecture the speaker will highlight the absolute surgical and prosthetic factors to be considered for successful treatment of atrophic maxilla. The speakers will also outline surgical technique modifications in situations where traditional approach would be difficult. Surgical considerations and techniques will be discussed utilizing actual cases.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this webinar session attendees should be able to:

 

  • Properly select cases for full-arch rehabilitation.

  • Understand the diagnostic principals in treatment of atrophic maxilla. Be familiar with surgical techniques for placement of dental implants.

  • Be familiar with prosthetic principals of rehabilitation.

Hack it! Alternative digital solutions in implant dentistry
The digital dental revolution has been around for some time, but it has only recently become a major player in implant dentistry. The conjunction of high-quality scanners, low-cost 3D printers, open software, and indication specific implants places the dental team in a unique position to control all aspects of implant therapy. While digital users are well versed in the traditional workflows of these devices, the applications are truly only limited by the clinician’s/lab tech’s imagination. Digital implant dentistry allows the implant team to “hack” traditional workflows and improve communication while making treatment more effective and efficient. This exciting and cutting-edge presentation will help dentists incorporate “outside the box” digital techniques using intraoral scanning, 3D printing, guided surgery, and CAD/CAM design to increase productivity, lower costs, improve esthetics, and provide more effective and predictable implant dentistry.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this presentation participants should be able to:

  • Understand how the combination of digital technology and indication specific implants can simplify preoperative planning, guided surgery and enhance the predictability of the restorative plan

  • Identify digital “hacks” that will reduce cost and accelerate the completion of clinical cases.

  • Learn creative ways to utilize intraoral scanning, free CAD software and 3D printing to optimize the emergence profile in the esthetic zone.

Tightening up your implant successes – Why screw loosening is the most frequent implant restorative complication
Knowledge: Most dentists have little understanding of screw mechanics (preload, torque, torsion, yield, plastic/elastic deformation) leaving us vulnerable to techniques we are unfamiliar with that could negatively impact our patients as well as ourselves.

Calibration: Clinical torque wrenches have been reported to over torque by 400% — with every dentists calibrating their torque tools (as required ISO 6789-2017) — which should be done after every time, especially after autoclaving.

Instructions: The dental literature cites incorrect and fabricated screw tightening techniques that are ineffective and uneconomical. Manufacturers: Fail to provide tightening procedures according to their particular screw material and coatings.

Dentists: Mis-read their torque devices due to parallax errors, sometimes as much as 40% below target torque.

This lecture is designed to provide you the latest research from several USA university institutions implant screw joints to help improve long-term success, and simply help you not to screw up!
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Latest research on screw design and surfaces- how to tighten Gold, DLC, Titanium, screws

  • Torque wrench issues- all have problems and may fail to deliver the desired torque- find out how to improve your own torque limiting device

  • Which tightening protocols to follow- which ones are incorrect

  • Knowledge behind how a screw joint can be optimized or destroyed by what you do.

Immediate molar implants: are they ready for prime time?
Dental implants are a known and predictable treatment option for missing teeth, where most patients today desire this therapy. Although implant survival is extremely high, these favorable outcomes depend greatly on proper case selection, minimizing medical risk factors, careful surgical and prosthetic execution, and prevention and management of complications. In clinical practice, patient demands are becoming more difficult to meet, where they often seek immediate implants with immediate function. This leaves the practicing clinician with a dilemma of meeting patient expectations, but often without scientific evidence for our treatment protocols. Are immediate implants as successful as delayed implant placement? Should immediate implants be limited to anterior teeth only? Are immediate molar implants stable long term? Is patient satisfaction improved when providing shorter treatment times? This presentation will discuss immediate implant placement, from single tooth to full-arch, including diagnosis and treatment planning, surgical and prosthetic execution, maintenance, and complications to help the practicing clinician meet the challenges of meeting patient demands without compromising long-term results.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • This lecture will discuss evidence for immediate implant placement, from single tooth to full arch reconstruction.

  • This lecture will discuss strategies to identify and prevent unfavorable outcomes in the immediate implant patient.

  • This lecture will discuss the use of immediate molar implants, and evidence to support their use.

The Real Digital Revolution: When, What and How to Create a Useful Digital Workflow
The goal of digital technology in the clinical environment is not to eliminate the impression material or place an implant without a flap. The benefit of digital technology is to improve the way we practice dentistry by offering advantages through the use of technologically enabled innovative workflows.

Improve your clinical process in everyday procedures including comprehensive patient evaluation, immediate solutions, revolutionizing the try-in, managing the broken provisional, simplifying your surgical and restorative procedures, reducing the number of patient visits, and shortening treatment time during patient visits.

Additional topics that will be discussed include what technology you should have in a clinical setting, what material considerations are there, the benefits of using a virtual lab technician, milling vs printing, reline vs printing, digital impression taking at surgery, and using low-dose CT as an impression technique.

This presentation will introduce solutions that can be implemented today using currently available clinical dental technology and will challenge the audience to change the way they provide their patient’s with treatment solutions.
LEARNING
  • Know what technology you need in a clinical setting and the material considerations.

  • Improve the process for everyday procedures.

  • Learn how to use innovate workflows in daily practice.

In the late 1990s, knowledge of bone physiology and the biomechanics of implants provided insights to clinician to practice immediate loading procedures. In an article published in 2007, “Single mandibular first molar implants with flapless guided surgery and immediate function: Preliminary clinical and radiographic results of a prospective study, stated that safe replacement of single mandibular first molars with an immediate prosthesis is possible with flapless surgery and premanufactured individualized abutments and crowns. Further defining the practical approach to obtaining high survival rates in immediate loading with guided surgery. In 2000, articles demonstrating the biomechanics of utilizing tilted implants was a starting pointing for many research groups on advancing in full-arch rehabilitation, this led to a technique and protocol by Professor Malo in 2003.

Interdisciplinary Management of Problem AEsthetic Cases
The treatment planning of complex cases requires the highest level of knowledge and skill of the treating team. It is an orchestration of procedures including proper sequencing and timing that makes the difference. An envisionment of the final case before starting is required to know where the goal of treatment will be directed. This, in conjunction with the patients’ needs and clinical situation, comprises the decision-making process for what is the best treatment for the patient. Problems facing the team such as: Which teeth to save or extract? Should implants be placed immediately or in a delayed protocol? Should multiple implants be placed in the aesthetic zone? When and how to include orthodontics if needed for sight development? Should pink ceramic be used or should ridge augmentation be performed? Should the case be splinted or broken up into separate bridges or individual teeth? How to provisionalize the case throughout treatment? When to immediate load cases versus do a serial extraction case? These concerns will be addressed in this interdisciplinary approach to our most challenging cases.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Describe the aesthetic risk factors for treatment of anterior teeth

  • Indicate different uses of ceramics as final prosthesis

  • Discuss tissue modifications around teeth and implants

  • Provisionalization of cases throughout the treatment

Adaptation of immediate protocols: a key to patient satisfaction and increased patient flow
This presentation will focus on immediate protocols and how they can benefit your practice, both from a clinical as well as from a patient acceptance point of view.

Today we have solid evidence and consensus that immediate protocols offer equal and sometimes higher predictability than conventional therapy. In today’s environment it’s a necessity to make these protocols part of how we treatment plan our patients. This presentation will show the concepts and clinical options of making immediate protocols simple and predictable to implement in any dental practice— starting Monday morning.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Understanding immediacy

  • Choosing an implant which can deliver immediate treatment

  • Case selection - what to avoid

  • Immediacy as a business model

NOVEL APPROACHES AND STRATEGIES FOR PERI-IMPLANT SOFT TISSUE AUGMENTATION: WHY, WHEN AND HOW
Endosseous dental implants have been used successfully for decades to replace missing teeth or teeth with poor prognosis. As long as the implants are inserted following a 3D prosthetic driven direction and surrounded by a minimum volume of bone matrix the implant treatment can be safely considered long-lasting. However the fact that an implant is properly functioning is not necessarily associated to success. In fact, many dental implants can present esthetics or functional alterations in the soft tissues morphology and texture that jeopardize the success rate of the therapy. Soft tissue defects around dental implants, such as papilla or volume loss, peri-implant recession and alterations of the ridge color and/or texture, lead to esthetic and functional critical issues. Treatments of these defects around implants are more demanding than in teeth because peri-implant tissue exhibits different anatomical and histological characteristics. Recent studies have shown that the peri-implant mucosa can play a major role in the sealing of the implant platform thus preventing bacterial ingrowth. A good quality, quantity and thickness of the peri-implant soft tissue is also critical to achieve biomimetics and pink esthetics. It has been reported that about one-third of the inserted implants may then require a connective tissue graft. However, this approach could be considered too invasive when multiple implants need to be treated with mucogingival plastic procedures. The “Buccal Pedicle Flap” and its modifications will be presented as a novel technique to boost the peri-implant mucosa without the need of invasive procedures thus allowing to obtain the desirable mucosa volume and quality. This approach would lead to a more stable tissues, no peri-implant bone loss or peri-implantitis and ultimately higher success rate in modern implant dentistry.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Understand the importance of the peri-implant mucosa

  • Being able to detect the critical numbers for mucosa health

  • Evaluate the surgical alternatives to boost the peri-implant mucosa

  • Understand in details the critical steps to perform the “Buccal Pedicle Flap”

  • Obtain a full understanding of the concept of mucosa integration and soft tissue sealing

  • Understand how to prevent or treat complications and failures in dental medicine

Combining Digital workflow with surgical execution and prosthetic management to maximize esthetic outcome
Implant treatment options to satisfy patient’s needs and desires have evolved continuously with increasing attention to quality of survival, and delivery of these services in a timely, predictable and cost-effective fashion.

As more advanced treatment concepts such as CT-assisted diagnosis, minimally invasive guided surgery and immediate restorations progress, the outcome of treatment has become more predictable. This allows for a significantly reduced complexity, facilitates the process, delivers the solution in an expedient and cost-effective manner, enhances the patient experience, and provides the necessary information for proper evaluation and critical decisions.

This program highlights diagnostic and treatment planning issues, basic digital data acquisition, and their transformation into surgical tools. Case selection criteria are decisive, and thus will be highlighted. Finally, the altered flow of treatment will be discussed comprehensively. Prosthetic restorations, from single tooth to full-arch cases, will be detailed in relationship to emergence profile, type of restorative materials, and case design. Provisionalization as it relates to patient management during the active treatment will be scrutinized, as will immediate loading protocols.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the advantages of CT assisted treatment planning.

  • Appreciate the workflow from patient acquisition to delivery of final restoration.

  • Understand the different areas throughout treatment where CT or CAD/CAM based tools can enhance outcome.

  • Understand the various prosthetic techniques and materials used to restore patients with implant-supported restorations.
