Overview / Abstract:


Individual patient conditions may present challenges that are not readily addressed in a generic treatment approach. Some of these include patients who are about to lose their entire dentition but refuse to remain without fixed restorations throughout treatment. Other patients present with phonetic difficulties, lack of tongue space or poor adaptability to new prostheses. Additional challenges involve edentulous patients who present with pre-existing implants in severely compromised positions. These conditions require customization of the treatment plan to address specific patient needs. The appropriate treatment sequence for these challenging conditions will be presented with attention to details that are critical to a successful reconstruction with proper esthetics and function.

Modules I & II Lectures include:

Diagnosis of advanced conditions
Advanced treatment planning and sequencing
Transitional implants to support fixed full-mouth restorations
Advanced framework designs for esthetics and maintainability
Restoration of implants with extreme angulations
Management of patients with advanced bruxism and parafunction
The Duplicate Backup Prosthesis concept and design
Laboratory techniques and procedures
Tools for supervising and coordinating laboratory work
Management of complications
Surgical considerations
Module III: Hands-On Workshop (Limited attendance)

Implant Verification Cast and Impression

In this unique simulation, participants will learn to meticulously create a full-arch impression coping assembly and a verification cast that accurately represent the patient’s condition. The verification cast is designed to be sent to the laboratory as a precise prescription for implant framework fit. The technician can use it to form an accurate framework and cut and solder predictably without the need to see the patient again; thus eliminating the need for intra-oral solder indices and multiple framework trials. This is the core technique to establish accurate CAD/CAM frameworks with predictable passive fit. It provides direct control over laboratory made frameworks, simplifies the treatment and enhances the predictability of implant reconstruction.
