PERIODONTAL AND IMPLANT DECISION MAKING: FROM TREATING THE AILING TOOTH TO THE FAILING IMPLANT (WEBINAR)

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

SPECIAL NOTE:

Participants will receive instructions for attending the webinar a week or two away from the course.

SYNOPSIS:

Understanding implant treatment planning requires both a restorative and surgical perspective. Surgically, implants are an obvious choice for edentulous areas yet challenges arise when encountering the replacement of questionable teeth with implants. Periodontal literature gives great insight when maintaining the dentition is possible yet there are situations where the decision to replace teeth with implants is not as clear. The aim of the course is to explore the multiple facets of implant dentistry in order to achieve a broad perspective valuable to implant treatment planning. Topics will include origins and science behind osseointegration, a basic review of surgical procedures typically used for augmentation and implant site preparation, implant success and failure, an understanding of periodontal prognosis of teeth in relation to implant prognosis, and surgical treatment planning of implants. The goal is to combine a broad understanding of the current science behind implants and teeth in order to develop a more concise treatment plan that helps navigate the difficult question of replacing teeth with implants.

Periodontal Diseases and their potential impact on Implant Prognosis
