Restoring Dental Implants: Current Prosthetic Options
The use of implant supported single tooth and partial edentulous restorations in the anterior and posterior zone covers a wide variety of clinical situations. Provisional replacement of teeth and the high expectations of esthetics and function create daily challenges in our practices. Immediate and early loading protocols and management options will be explored as well.
The emergence of high performance ceramic materials is providing a new set of options to restorative dentists. A detailed analysis of restorative material options will be discussed.
The treatment planning and clinical processes used to create successful outcomes will be presented along with the workflow technologies as they relate to successful long term performance of implant therapy in daily clinical practice.
Topics to be covered:
- Abutment selection for screw retained and cement retained restorations.
- Provisional restorations.
- Immediate and early loading protocols.
- Impression techniques.
- Restorative material selection.
- Restoration design: Occlusion, Contours and Esthetics
Objectives: At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the treatment planning and execution of single tooth and partial edentulous anterior and posterior restorations.
- Understand how to select abutments for screw retained and cement retained restorations.
- Understand immediate and early loading protocols.
- Understand the impact of high performance ceramic materials and digital technology workflows.
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.
