Immediate Implant Placement With or Without Immediate Provisionalization

BACK Immediate Implant Placement With or Without Immediate Provisionalization Immediate implant placement has recently become a predictable clinical procedure. Decision trees for managing different socket classifications will be presented to guide clinicians on how to best select different techniques (immediate implant placement with or without immediate provisionalization, GBR during implant

Conserving and Developing Soft Tissue Form Around Implants

BACK Conserving and Developing Soft Tissue Form Around Implants After the period of pure osseointegration and function, a new era of implant dentistry has begun demanding aesthetic soft tissue outcomes. Incision technique, flap design and specific sutures are necessary for success. Surgery must be adapted to the individual situation of

The Lifetime Implant

BACK The Lifetime Implant Implant biomaterials and designs have evolved to address issues such as marginal bone maintenance, biomechanics, soft tissue stability, esthetics and immediate function.  This lecture will discuss various factors that impact long term implant health and function such as surface technology, implant design and sizes as well as

Implant Design Hierarchy for Osseointegration Augmentation

BACK Implant Design Hierarchy for Osseointegration Augmentation Dental implantology has been regarded as one of the most successful treatment modalities in dentistry and medicine. However, the quest for reducing the period between implant placement and final restoration has been endless. Most of the attempts in decreasing the time needed between

Peri-implant Soft Tissue Management Through Immediate Tooth Replacement Therapy

BACK Peri-implant Soft Tissue Management Through Immediate Tooth Replacement Therapy Immediate tooth replacement therapy has become more popular in clinical practice since its introduction over 20 year ago. Consistent implant survival and esthetic outcomes can now be achieved with modern day implantology. However, following tooth extraction the peri-implant soft tissues

One Surgery One Time: Immediate Placement of Implants in the Esthetic Zone

BACK One Surgery One Time: Immediate Placement of Implants in the Esthetic Zone Implant dentistry is continuously evolving offering new and more predictable forms of therapy with minimally invasive protocols. Innovative techniques now allow for better esthetics, decreased treatment times, and greater patient comfort. This lecture will address current concepts

Re-treatment of Compromised Sites in the Esthetic Zone

BACK Re-treatment of Compromised Sites in the Esthetic Zone The predictability and long-term success rate of dental implants is well documented in the literature.  Nevertheless, complications and failures do occur, requiring retreatment.  Failing implants and the consequences of implant removal usually result in significant loss of hard and soft tissues

Soft Tissue Grafting with Allografts and Xenografts

BACK Soft Tissue Grafting with Allografts and Xenografts Soft tissue grafting techniques have become less invasive with the development of the tunnel technique and use of allograft and xenograft alternatives to palatal tissue. These advances have resulted in improved wound stability, reduced surgical risks and enhanced esthetics. This lecture will

Sinus Grafting 30 Years: Myths and Realities

BACK Sinus Grafting 30 Years: Myths and Realities This clinical based presentation is based on the presenter’s 30 year experience with sinus grafting. It will focus on myths and realities of selection criteria and biology of graft materials, physiology of the sinus membrane, management of large and complete membrane perforations,
