The Morning…

The Single Tooth Implant: The Ultimate Esthetic Challenge

The single tooth implant may be one of the most difficult challenges dentists face, with possible unforeseen outcomes.

The past few years have brought a paradigm shift, as guidelines for the surgical and restorative approach have changed dramatically. Fine tune your workup to create a result that is as close to a natural replacement as possible. We will focus on the latest advances incorporating evidence-based data. Participants will review a unique sequential treatment planning approach which can result in successful outcomes.

Emphasis will be given to the use of 3D treatment planning as it relates to the diagnostic workup and the use of computer guided surgery. * Multiple provisional options and/or interim Hawley prosthesis appliances will be reviewed to attain ideal esthetic results. Long term follow-up will be shown as it relates to these approaches.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the use of platform switching and when and where to use it
  • Identify the “Top 10” rules for a successful esthetic outcome
  • Determine when to use immediate vs. delayed placement of implants
  • Understand the principles of CT guided treatment planning
  • Describe multiple provisional options for maximizing esthetic results

Suggested Attendee: General Practitioner & Dental Specialists

In the Afternoon…

To Pull or Not to Pull: Periapical Surgery vs. Implant Surgery

What alternative treatment options should be considered when a restorative and/or endodontic failure occurs?

Advancements in delivering periapical surgery have resulted in success rates that can be equivalent to implant replacement when certain guidelines are adhered to.  Periapical surgery as an adjunct to endodontic treatment is a proven approach.  With the introduction of new surgical techniques and a systematic method to the diagnosis and treatment of compromised teeth, the clinician should be able to more accurately determine the long-term prognosis for these treatment options.

Evaluate treatment options with an evidence-based approach when a tooth is ailing or failing. This course will describe the indications and contraindications for performing or referring a patient for apical surgery. With a specific 7 step workup, including a correct history, radiographic and clinical evaluation, the decision to perform an apicoectomy will be weighed against further evaluation, a retreatment option, or extraction and replacement with an implant (immediate or delayed). As a result, a decision is more accurately made as to whether an implant or a fixed bridge (fixed partial prosthesis), a removable prosthesis (fixed or transitional temporary prosthesis), or other options would be the final treatment plan discussed with the patient.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the radiographic technique to use when evaluating a tooth for a fracture
  • List the 7-step work-up, consisting of procedures and tests that should be used when performing or referring a patient for an apicoectomy
  • Understand the principles of guided tissue regeneration, and know the indications and contraindications for its use
  • Recognize how the location of a sinus tract can be a key critical diagnostic indicator for the final prognosis
  • Identify the signs to differentiate between an Endo/Perio vs. Perio/Endo lesions and understand the difference as it relates to the final prognosis
