SYNOPSIS

A CRITICAL LOOK AT PRESENT DAY PROCEDURAL CHANGES IN IMPLANT DENTISTRY THAT HAVE ALTERED HOW WE CARE FOR OUR PATIENTS.

 
This presentation will explore how innovations and concept changes shape our skills and treatment planning solutions, while underscoring the importance of collaborative planning between restoring dentist, technician and surgical team members.
 
Surgical concepts that will be reviewed include virtual planning and guided surgery/provisional treatment, immediate implant placement and restoration strategies, and management of bone deficiencies and the gingival biotype.

  • Prosthetic concepts that will be touched on include post-surgical implant provisionalization, digital scanning, anatomic abutment design and restorative material selection for esthetics and long-term stability, including different scenarios for the hybrid (screw-retained/cemented) crown.

 
The following learning objectives will be explored in this presentation:

  1. Soft and hard tissue enhancement procedures used in surgical practice today. Recognize what the surgical team can do, but understand the limitations.
  2. Deciding on immediate, early or delayed implant placement and restoration protocols. Recognize the pros and cons of these decisions. The use and fabrication of customized healing abutments and provisionalization: Why they are important steps in guiding tissue form in both anterior and posterior regions.
  3. Conventional impressions vs. optical scanning. The pros and cons of both procedures.
  4. Review today’s restorative material options; understand the strengths and limitations of our product options.
  5. Recognize why digital workflows are dramatically improving accuracy and practice efficiency, while reducing errors in the treatment planning phase, surgical protocols and restorative design.
