Seminar Topics & Objectives:
Immediate Molar Replacement: Meeting Patient Demands with Evidence
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? Are molar immediate implants stable long-term? Is patient satisfaction improved when providing shorter treatment times? This presentation will discuss immediate molar implant placement, 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 molar implant placement.
  • This lecture will discuss strategies to identify and prevent unfavorable outcomes in the immediate molar implant patient.
  • This lecture will discuss the evidence for immediate molar implants, both short and long-term
