Techniques for Soft Tissue Preservation with Immediate Implant Placement - Fabricating an Immediate Temporary in the Esthetic Zone: A Virtual Hands-on Course

Presented by Dr. Stephen Chu

June 18, 2021 • 1:00pm-4:00pm CST • 3 CE Credit Hours • $175 tuition

 

 

 

Immediate implant placement in extraction sockets with immediate temporization offers advantages to both the patient and the clinician, including fewer surgical procedures and reduced treatment time. While immediate implant placement and restoration presents unique challenges, improvements in implant design, bone and tissue preservation procedures and provisional restoration techniques can provide the benefits of immediate treatment with the success rates of delayed protocols.

This webinar is designed for surgeons or restorative doctors who are interested in learning a unique protocol for making a chairside immediate temporary in the esthetic zone, saving the patient time and reducing office visits.

Learning objectives include:

  • Unique method for fabrication of an immediate temporary in the esthetic zone, crucial to hard and soft tissue preservation
  • Proficiency in making an implant level impression with properly captured subgingival contours
  • Hands-on application of the technique to fabricate an immediate temporary at tooth #8, using models and materials received ahead of time in conjunction with materials from the doctor’s practice

*Attendees will receive materials prior to the webinar so they can participate in the hands-on application of the technique.

Digital Full-Arch Implant Solutions: What Do We Really Know?

Presented by Dr. Julian Conejo

August 4, 2021 • 7:00pm-8:00pm EST • 1 CE Credit Hour • Free

 

 

 

 

 

Digital dentistry is growing rapidly among dental clinicians and laboratory technicians. While intraoral scanners provide high accuracy for short-span tooth and implant-supported restorations, research findings on the use of intra-oral scanners for full-arch restorations are mixed. A full digital workflow to achieve a passive fitting framework from an intraoral scan is still uncommon.

As rates of edentulism and demand for full-arch treatment continue to grow, the procedure still requires multiple appointments and is unaffordable for many patients. The implementation of a predictable digital workflow is key for long-term clinical success and patient access and depends upon a mix of both digital and analog steps to obtain a passive-fitting framework.

The goal of this lecture is to present full-arch, digital impression protocols with intraoral scanners and snap-on scan bodies to produce a predictable full-arch prosthesis in fewer steps.

This course is designed for specialists and general practitioners who are interested in enhancing their bone grafting technique, especially for dental implant cases. Leukocyte- and Platelet-Rich Fibrin (L-PRF®) is derived from a small sample of the patient’s blood, taken at the point of care, and processed to develop a fibrin clot. The fibrin clot is prepared into a membrane that is rich in platelets, growth factors and cytokines necessary to produce rapid healing and efficient regeneration.

This biomaterial is resilient, strong, and pliable, making it easy to manipulate and receptive to suturing. It can be cut to size and is supple enough to adapt to many anatomical areas. It is adhesive in nature, making it an ideal carrier for bone graft material. Uses for the material include bulking graft material, replacing graft material, using it as a barrier membrane, placing it in extractions sites for increased healing, and using it in guided tissue regeneration procedures. It is also ideal for extraction/immediate placement cases.

In this course, you will learn the science behind L-PRF and how to incorporate it in your clinical practice. The in-person hands-on training portion will teach you how to create the L-PRF membrane/plugs.

Dental Implants for the Growing Patient • Presented by Dr. Tara Aghaloo • 1 CE Credit Hour

 

 

 

 

 

Dental implants are a well-accepted and successful procedure for replacing missing teeth in adults. However, congenitally missing permanent teeth, trauma, and pathology can leave children in need for dental implant placement. Other congenital deformities such as cleft lip/palate, ectodermal dysplasia, and oligodontia often leave the growing patient without a permanent solution until they reach adulthood. Although studies show successful placement and restoration of implants in the growing patient, this is not a commonly performed procedure in clinical practice. Complications such as infraocclusion, replacement of crowns during growth, marginal bone loss, and restriction of alveolar bone formation are concerns when considering implants in the growing patient. This webinar will discuss the timing of dental implants, risks and benefits of placing implants in the growing patient, and how even skeletally mature patients may develop submerged implants and other complications over time.

Complex Decision Making in the Esthetic Zone: The Interdisciplinary Team Approach • Presented by Dr. Dennis Tarnow • 1 CE Credit Hour

 

 

 

Treatment planning of complex cases requires the highest level of knowledge and skill from the treating team. Whether we are looking at mid-facial recession or black triangles due to loss of papilla, it is the orchestration of procedures and timing that make the difference. Some cases only need the restorative dentist, while others need surgical or orthodontic treatment to maximize the esthetic outcome. Envisioning that outcome before starting the case is critical to directing it. This, in conjunction with the patient’s needs and clinical situation, comprise the decision-making process for providing the best possible result.

Medical Risk Factors in the Surgical Implant Patient • Presented by Dr. Tara Aghaloo • 1 CE Credit Hour

 

 

 

 

 

Although dental implants are a mainstream therapy to replace missing teeth, patients with medical risk factors may have higher failure rates than healthy patients. Systemic medical conditions and medications can affect osseointegration as well as long-term implant success. Do these patients require additional precautions or altered surgical protocols? Are there any absolute or relative contraindications to implant surgery? As clinicians perform implant surgery, we must be able to identify important risk factors, counsel our patients on alterations in surgical protocol and healing times, and provide realistic expectations. Medical risk factors may also lead us to perform less invasive procedures, limit surgical complexity, or alter restorative treatment plans. This presentation will provide the practicing clinician with strategies to minimize risk factors in the medically compromised patient, improve surgical outcomes, and minimize complications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Updates on medical risk factors and medications that may increase implant failures
  • Discuss strategies to improve outcomes in medically compromised patients

    Alternative Full Arch Treatment Concepts: Incorporating Mini & Conventional Implants to Improve Treatment Outcomes for Overdenture Cases • Presented by Dr. Matthew Fien • 1 CE Credit Hour

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Full arch rehabilitation with dental implants has become a predictable and widespread treatment modality due to advances in our understanding of biology, improved treatment protocols, and implant design. However, not all patients are candidates for the “all-on-x” style of treatment. Implant supported overdentures are often a predictable treatment option for these cases and have the benefit of reduced cost, improved ability for patients to perform oral hygiene, and improved esthetics in patients who require a flange for lip support.  Immediate loading is an option in these cases but is not always possible and can increase risk.

    In this webinar, Dr. Fien will review a protocol for immediately loading mini implants to support an overdenture, simultaneously placing standard diameter implants and allowing time for optimal healing.  Using mini implants in this fashion improves patient comfort following surgery and reduces appointments and chair time, as patients are more comfortable throughout the healing phase.

    Anterior Implant Restorations • Presented by Dr. Dean Vafiadis • 1 CE Credit Hour

     

     

     

    One of the most challenging restorations in dentistry is the replacement of anterior teeth in the esthetic zone.  New technologies can help the clinician make better decisions before extraction, before surgery and before starting the restorative phase. This presentation will highlight new techniques and concepts that allow critical thinking in the decision-making necessary to replace an anterior tooth with an implant restoration. Learning Objectives:

    • Understand new technologies for diagnostics of the anterior aesthetic zone
    • Review new software solutions for ideal prosthetics
    • Discuss emergence protocols to restore the bone and tissue zone around implants
    • Understand anterior digital workflow
    • Materials and ceramics for ideal esthetics

    The Role of the Restorative Dentist in the Management of Immediate Implant Placement in the Extraction Sites • Presented by Dr. Guido Sarnachiaro • 2 CE Credit Hours

     

     

     

     

     

     Immediate implant placement in extraction sockets with immediate temporization offers advantages to both the patient and the clinician, including fewer surgical procedures and reduced treatment time. While immediate placement and restoration in the esthetic zone presents unique challenges, improvements in implant design, bone and tissue preservation procedures and provisional restoration techniques can provide the benefits of immediate treatment with success rates comparable or improved to delayed protocols. This course will address the specific challenges of immediate placement and restoration, including:

    • Unique methods for fabrication of an immediate provisional, crucial to soft tissue preservation
    • Tridimensional alignment of the implant and use of graft material at time of surgery.
    • Review of various types of extraction sockets, based on the integrity of the bony walls.
    • Proficiency in making an implant level impression with properly captured subgingival contours.
    • A step-by-step protocol to fabricate the proper screw retained provisional.
