Restorative Implant Dentistry For Partially Edentulous Arches (LECTURE & HANDS-ON)

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:


In this course, participants will gain confidence and proficiency in restoring any type of implant connection. Both internal and external connections will be discussed, and advantages and disadvantages of the various types of connections will be analyzed. Participants will also learn when certain connections are indicated or preferred and how to participate in the decision making process with the oral surgeon or periodontist. The management of implants from single units to multiple units in the partially edentulous arch will be discussed. On day one, the format will be lecture only. The presentation will begin with diagnosis and treatment planning for the single missing tooth and will address different types of implant connections and restorative options for these various connections. The lecture will continue with treatment planning of multiple implants for the partially edentulous arch. The rationale for deciding whether to splint multiple implants or whether to keep them individual will be discussed. Different options for splinting will be presented. On day two, the hands-on workshop will consist of exercises to allow participants to recognize the difference between all types of implant connections and become familiar with restorative procedures such as impression taking, fabrication of provisional restorations and fastening of definitive abutments and final restorations to these different connections. Digital procedures for restorative implant dentistry will be introduced and digital workflows will be discussed. Also on day two, the workshop will include accurate impression-making techniques for multiple implants, and fabricating provisional restorations for single and multiple implants using different techniques..
