Implant based treatments can improve patient function, esthetics and self-esteem for partially and completely edentulous patients. Unfortunately, the complexity of therapy can vary greatly and outcomes can be inconsistent. This program will focus firstly on planning and treatment factors commonly associated with both successful outcomes and complications. Specific considerations will emphasize principles and how factors interact and can be considered in both an analog and digital workflow.

The program will focus on evidence-based clinical protocols for implant assisted options, and how sound principles can help minimize the occurrence and severity of complications. Discussion will include implant choices, implant position, abutment and connection options and prosthodontic alternatives, in addition to contemporary (digital) planning and fabrication options. The importance of utilizing and leveraging technical and digital advances, to avoiding implant complications will be emphasized.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Consider surgical and prosthodontic treatment options that help avoid complications
  • Identify advanced and complex patients and consider factors influencing treatment outcomes
  • Introduce digital workflow concepts designed to improve quality and predictability of outcomes, especially in the esthetic zone
  • Review communication between TEAM members and detail treatment principles and procedures used in treating edentulous and partially dentate patients including patients with high esthetic demand.
