Implants are becoming a routine treatment option for replacing missing teeth. Successful management of dental implant cases requires appropriate treatment planning. In order to plan these cases properly, it is necessary to understand the limitations and associated risk factors. In addition, planning treatments with dental implants rquires specific skills that are unique to this treament modality. This includes knowledge of the components required for the treatment and the ability to use dental implant catalogs. Dental implant companies provide a large range of options in terms of components needs to treat these cases, (i.e. implants, impression transfers, implant abutments, etc.). Each clinical scenario requires specific components that depend on multiple factors such as implant position and angulation, the size of the implant that can be placed, mouth opening and many others. Therefore, in order to be able to manage a dental implant treatment, the clinician needs to be able to select the most appropriate components for each case. Furthermore, in order to plan the surgical placement of a dental implant, surgical guides are needed. Handmade surgical guides help determine the position of the implant whereas CAD/CAM surgical guides help determine the precise position and angulation of the implant.
In the morning session of this course, the participants will be introduced to the key concepts in planning treatments with dental implants. Afterwards, there will be a hands-on exercise in which the participants will be trained on how to develop comprehensive treatment plans for dental implant cases, and how to use the dental implant catalogs needed to do so.
In the afternoon session, the participants will be trained on how to make surgical guides for edentulous and dentate patients using traditional manual techniques as well as CAD/CAM technology.
Dentists may attend the full-day course with hands-on workshop, or the morning (didactic) session only.
