Course Description

This course will provide a digital and diagnostic protocol to enable both prosthetic and periodontal treatment planning for patient scenarios where immediate implant therapy is the ideal treatment option. The focus will be on creating ideal emergence profiles and highly esthetic prosthesis to meet the needs of the most demanding patients. Full-arch implant therapy will also be addressed.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the step-by-step process for proper diagnosis and prosthetic selection.
  • Determine the key steps in reverse engineering full-arch implant therapy.
  • Learn important considerations for selecting patients in which additional osseous and mucogingival approaches can be used to enhance the prosthetic environment.
  • Learn to digitally plan a guided surgery for immediate implant placement and loading with a highly esthetic milled PMMA temporary restoration.
  • Compare guided surgery with traditional surgery and understand indications for each.
  • Understand the advantages of the digital vs. analog protocol when making the interim restoration and the final prosthesis and the limitations and complications of this technique.
  • Understand how to apply mucogingival procedures simultaneously with guided surgery and immediate loading.
  • Learn the proper management of emergence profiles and their transfer to the definitive prosthesis.
  • Understand the importance of periodontal and prosthodontic maintenance for long-term success.
