BVOMS & Straumann Annual Meeting

Restoratively Driven Implant Failure: Prevention, Maintenance and Technical Solution

Friday, JANUARY 25, 2019 

Program Description:

Implant failures cannot be attributed to excess cement alone, this 2 part lecture will address other common causes of restorative implant complications and failures. Many of these can be associated with the restorative treatment that was undertaken. An intimate understanding of proper restorative procedures can help us avoid costly complications and failures. We will give solutions that will be practical and that can be implemented on Monday morning. Protocols will be discussed that will make restoring full arch or single-unit implant restorations more predictable and more enjoyable.

 Learning objectives:

• Further educate the audience on common problems that can be encountered when restoring Screw Retained Hybrid cases.
• Highlight the interdisciplinary approach to planning and treatment for implant patients using recent advances in implants and screw retained options
• Identify the need and opportunity to treat edentulous patients with fixed detachable prostheses.
• Focus on implementing in-office technology for restoring single and multiple unit restorations.
• Discuss different materials used for single and multiple unit restorations and how to overcome issues that may occur when prosthesis are failing
