Q&A, Wrap Up & Summary Concepts

COURSE OUTLINES

 

Implant Placement in the Anterior Esthetic Zone: Idealistic vs. Realistic

Dr. Froum

 

Although advances in implant esthetic dentistry have been continuing to develop, complications still occur.  Esthetic compromises including pink porcelain, prosthetic misfit, unesthetic restorations and patient dissatisfaction are a daily occurrence. The result of poor implant treatment planning can be mechanical failure and/or biologic failure ultimately resulting in financial failure. This course will review proper placement protocols and strategies for when ideal placement is not an option.

 

Educational Objectives:

  • Discuss proper 3-dimensional implant placement

  • Discuss the compromise made when ideal placement is not an option

  • Discuss how to surgically replace compromised implants in the esthetic zone

Achieving Anterior Implant Esthetic Excellence: Prosthetic Concepts

Dr. Brinton

 

Anterior esthetic implant cases are extremely rewarding as they make a big impact for our patients and build our practice through referrals. A complete understanding of function and biology are important to achieve lasting esthetic goals. We will cover all prosthetic aspects including case selection, planning and staging treatment, material selection, abutment options and design as well as techniques to maximize predictability and profitability.

 

Educational Objectives:

  • Understand the biological response to dental implant prosthetics

  • Identify restorative methods that maintain hard and soft tissues

  • Review prosthetically driven treatment planning guidelines that facilitate esthetic

 

 

Compromised Dental Implant Cases: What Can the Lab Do?

Mr. Pigliacelli

 

As implant dentistry has evolved so has the demand on esthetic outcomes. So many advancements have come about to make the final restorations easier to produce, more routine, and more predictable. Although we have material and techniques that can create lifelike beautiful restoration, are they predictable? Most dental seminars deal with the ideal preparation or ideal implant placement where the final outcome is superior in esthetics and function. What about the failures, misplaced implants, damaged implants and the “other dentists” remakes? 

 

Rather than showing beautiful esthetic restorations made on optimal tooth or implant alignment, this course will show dental complications where esthetics were not thought to be an option. Both tooth and implant complications will be covered when the non-ideal patient presents, and you have to achieve the most desirable outcome.

 

Educational Objectives:

 

  • Identify obstacles in the compromised case and treatment plan for success 

  • Determine which material will give best strength and optimal esthetics to repair compromised cases 

  • Learn which implant restorative options are available in compromised cases

 

 

Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting in the Anterior Esthetic Zone: Minimally Invasive Techniques

Dr. Froum

 

Proper implant placement in the anterior zone to achieve prosthetic esthetics often requires tissue grafting. Invasive grafting with traditional surgical techniques and materials can often lead to recession and esthetic defects. Advances in biomaterial and non-invasive surgery has given the clinician the ability to predictably augment deficiencies while not creating esthetic problems. This course has an aim to teach the participant atraumatic extraction and grafting techniques as well as the latest biologic materials available.

 

Educational Objectives:

  • Learn techniques to carefully remove teeth

  • Learn the available non-invasive surgical hard and soft tissue techniques

  • Discuss bio-promotive material available

 

What Implant is That?: Techniques to Recognize Unknown Dental Implants

Mr. Pigliacelli

 

What do you do when a patient comes to your office with an old implant restoration that you did not place or can't find any information about? With over 40 years of dental implants and restorations being placed and over 600 kinds of implants, identifying unknown implants seems near impossible. This course will cover a protocol used to identify implants by X-ray and photos. It will demonstrate methods of evaluation, and ways to find out if parts are still available by the identified manufacturer or a supplemental supplier. 

 

 

Educational  Objectives: 

 

  • Identify implants based on radiographs and clinical photos 

  • Suggest methods for contacting manufactures and asking for parts 

  • Provide options for implant manufacturers that no longer exist and what supplemental suppliers are available

 

 

Utilizing Digital Workflows to Achieve Excellence in Anterior Implants

Dr. Brinton

 

Digital workflows for implant dentistry are rapidly advancing and offer increased efficiency and predictability resulting in greater predictability and more comfort and less appointments for patients. The course will address esthetically driven implant planning via digital smile creation workflows. By planning the esthetic outcome before beginning the case we can deliver a predictable result using digitally designed surgical guides, healing abutments, provisional and final restorations.

 

Educational Objectives:

  • Understand digital smile creation workflows

  • Review surgical guide planning and design

  • Learn digital methods for esthetic implant restoration

 

 

Hands-on Workshop

Dr. Froum, Dr. Brinton, Mr. Pigliacelli

 

 

The Hands-on workshop will be given by a periodontist, general dentist, and master lab dental technician with the focus of practicing what was learned in the didactic lecture. Using customized implant models, soft tissue replicas, and animal jaws, clinicians will learn how to place implants, temporize implants, correct anatomic defects, practice hard and soft tissue augmentation techniques, digital scan, custom print, and correct compromised cases. This training will be held in modules where the participants will be able to maximize their learning objectives.  Each module will be designed to mirror what was discussed by the speakers during the presentation. They will be broken down into 4 modules:

 

  1. Extraction and Implant Placement module: Practice careful extraction techniques and immediate implant placement on models.

 

  1. Grafting Module: Surgical practice of hard and soft tissue grafting on models

 

  1. Digital Scanning Module: Design surgical guides, custom healing abutments, and provisionals to guarantee proper emergence profile

 

  1. 3D Printing Module: Digital workflow from scanning to printing. Learn how the technology enables you to make compromises for the ‘disaster cases’
