We offer a comprehensive education program in all disciplines of implant dentistry with the latest technology available.
The maturation of the field of implant dentistry with regards to digital technology and materials has improved treatment efficiency as well as both esthetic and functional predictability. The utilization of a comprehensive and synergistic digital workflow, based on sound evidence-based principles and team communication, is one way to satisfy these demands. In a single-tooth replacement situation, the synergy workflow incorporates digital acquisition of patient data, a virtual wax-up, pre-surgical planning of the implant position followed by template and provisional fabrication through an additive or milling process, prior to initiating the surgical procedure. This two-day course will focus on the technology utilized in the synergy workflow through lectures and hands-on sessions. Participants will be given presentations that demonstrate the step-wise process followed by hands-on sessions executing the principles taught. Participants will experience the use of an intra-oral scanner, perform a digital wax-up, import a DICOM file and merge it with the wax-up, plan implant placement, design and print a surgical guide and mill a provisional. On a patient simulated model, the participant will place an implant with fully-guided surgery and deliver the implant supported provisional. All course participants will keep the hands-on model as a valuable patient education tool to be used in their practice.
Innovative digital technology has become ubiquitous in todays modern world. As dental professionals digital technology has given us the ability to diagnose and treatment plan our patients more accurately and efficiently. Contemporary guided surgery combined with digital technology makes our treatment more accurate and precise. We can also use digital technology to make communicating with our colleges faster and more convenient. Digital technology can now play a large role in case acceptance by allowing us to differentiate our practice from other competitors in the community. This program will highlight various technologies that we can utilize to increase practice efficiency, accuracy, precision, as well as case acceptance.
The evaluation of patients for immediate loading who have with terminal dentition, especially in the maxilla, may at times be challenging. This presentation and hands-on course will discuss and showcase simple pre-operative techniques to predictably evaluate the type of final prosthesis needed for this group of patients. Patients generally are presented with treatment plans to undergo removal of their teeth followed by several months of wearing a nonfunctional full denture as the alveolar ridge heals. This is an uncomfortable phase of their treatment and therefore, many patients who may be presented with this treatment option chose not to have any form of treatment performed. In this presentation, several cases will be shown to demonstrate the efficacy of immediate loading the terminal dentition patient eliminating the denture wearing phase. This presentation will outline an efficient and predictable treatment protocol allowing for a higher case acceptance by the patient with terminal dentition.
In today’s fast paced world, patients expect not only reliable, predictable and personalized treatment options, but they also demand solutions to shorten the overall treatment time. Therefore, immediate dental implant protocols have become more popular, and are validated as safe and acceptable treatment modalities. During this education program, world-renowned speaker Dr. Edmond Bedrossian will present the latest evidence on pre- and clinical performance of newly developed implant technology: from implant material, to the unique macro- and micro-design and the best-in-class surface technology. Wide clinical application spectrum that goes beyond immediate implant protocols will be discussed.
The development in digital technology has allowed us to extend immediate implant treatment options to a larger portion of our patient population. These changes and evolution are presented in all aspects and phases of the treatment, from the diagnostic and data acquisition all the way to implant design and prosthetic materials. Even though the fundamentals of implant treatment planning and surgical technique are still the same, incorporating these changes in your everyday practice demands investment and learning new tools. This presentation will discuss the optimal ways to improve data collection and communication with the planning and design team for a centralized solution. These small nuances can decrease inaccuracies, waste time, and complications during immediate guide surgery. We will also discuss implant selection and the rationale behind the different approaches.
This webinar will review how full arch digital planning protocol can serve the interdisciplinary team as an equalizing platform where all members (restorative dentist, surgeon, technician and biomedical engineer) are able to express their treatment plan ideas and concerns and “negotiate” the best route of therapy through everybody’s eyes. It will describe the systematic approach so that all pertinent elements of treatment planning are evaluated, so that the treating team may face therapy which a much broader understanding of what can be expected during surgery, and therefore ensure a realistic expectation across the board.
Over this unique three-day course, you will experience 6 live surgeries and engage with world-class clinicians during interactive presentations. On the third day, you will spend time in our educational laboratory working on fresh human cadavers, having the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills discussed during the course.
The journey for the patient undergoing full arch implant treatment can bring great rewards but can also be extremely intimidating. Now more than ever, we need to hone and modify our skills to help guide our patients to make the correct choice for themselves and help them through this stressful time. Understanding the full scope of what is possible and harnessing newer technologies for our patient is vital as we restore their function and bring them back to more healthy function in an unhealthy time! As a practitioner it is our responsibility to understand all options available and deliver the treatment that the patient needs and selects. This program will cover all aspects of full arch treatment including patient acquisition, communication techniques leading to case acceptance, and clinical steps for fixed and removable immediate load protocols.
The replacement of a missing tooth or teeth in patients with immediacy and esthetic demands has become a focal point in today’s implant practice. The utilization of evidenced-based treatment protocols coupled with the integration of digital technology in the planning, placement and restoration of these implants have resulted in a streamlining of the treatment workflow, with end efforts to reduce patient chair-time, increase predictability and overall success. The pressure for the clinician to adopt this digital technology is evident, but it can often be met with resistance due to lack of knowledge or the cost of incorporation. The aim of this presentation is to showcase the advantages of utilizing digital technology in the immediate implant situation and to offer a comparison between incorporation of digital technology via in-house or outsourcing workflows.
Utilizing a combination of interactive discussion, observation of live surgery and immediate full arch fixed conversions, hands-on exercises, and lecture materials, this comprehensive two-day course demonstrates an effective team approach. To help both your patients, and your practice.
