The 11 Minute Comprehensive Patient Plan Leading to Ideal Implant Treatment Acceptance

Lecture is 1 CE

June 2 - The 11 Minute Comprehensive Patient Plan Leading to Ideal Implant Treatment Acceptance

The 11 Minute Comprehensive Patient Plan Leading to Ideal Implant Treatment Acceptance

June 2 at 7PM EDT

The current climate has dictated new demands on the clinician and patient alike. In the post-pandemic world, expectations around infection control and safety are top of mind. How do clinicians provide clinical excellence for the patient, increase practice efficiency and ensure safety for all involved while reducing interactive time? This webinar will explore new workflows to accomplish the comprehensive patient face to face exam in 11 minutes. Digital technology will feature prominently in the practice workflow to ensure professional distancing, while delivering more comprehensive implant treatment plans and patient care. Participants will learn about capturing efficiencies through digital workflows such as CT scans, Intraoral scans and design.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand digital options for data acquisition- patient photos, CT scan and intraoral scans
  • Transfer data to design and plan the treatment from the surgery to final restoration
  • Design a workflow for your practice to ensure comprehensive care while engaging in Professional Distancing

2 Part Series: Current Concepts That Enhance Implant Success 

Lecture is 2 CE

May 27 - Part 1: Current Concepts That Enhance Implant Success

Part 1: Current Concepts That Enhance Implant Success  

May 27 at 6PM EDT

Recommended reading Prior to the course: Designing a safety checklist for Dental Implant Placement JADA 145(2) February 2014 page 131-140 http://jada.ada.org 

This course provides Four Hours of lecture dedicated to the Evidence Based Approach that supports the current concepts that support long term success of implant osteointegration and soft/hard tissue support. We will review the definitions of the most current language seen in Dental Implant Literature today. We will review the diagnostic steps that must be detailed prior to implant placement and review a systematic approach to treatment planning simple to moderately advanced cases. This short review course is tailored for the generalist looking to update their knowledge of the current trends in Implantology; topics covered will include surgical placement and prosthetics for single implants.  

The Goal of this lecture will be to use the numerous dental implant articles gathered from the early 1980’s till the present, to dissect the factors of unexpected outcomes. We will summarize and review the Biological and Mechanical aspects of dental implant design, implant site anatomy, surgical factors, healing cycles, bone factors, osseointegration, implant design, restorative considerations and post-restorative concerns that have manifested in implant case failures. Our objective is to make sense of the available scientifically supported aspects of each of these modalities, so that we may help prevent negative outcomes in our own cases. At the conclusion of the seminar, participants will be able to discuss:

  • Common Dental Implant Complications
  • Consequences of Biomechanical Overload
  • Dissect the Biologic and Engineering Factors involved 
  • Discuss Rational for Proper Prevention

Improving Osseointegration with Hydrophilic Surfaces

Lecture is 1 CE

May 28 - Improving Osseointegration with Hydrophilic Surfaces

Improving Osseointegration with Hydrophilic Surfaces

May 28 at 2PM EDT

Modification of titanium dental implant surface can speed up the osseointegration process. Also, the improvement of the implant surface can be very beneficial in situations of poor bone quality. There are different methods for modifying the implant surface topography. During this presentation, nanotechnology as well as surface wettability will be discussed in terms of bone formation and cell behaviorAt the conclusion of the seminar, participants will be able to discuss:

  • Discuss different types of surface treatment for dental implants. 
  • Discuss the benefits of surface treatment on osseointegration.
  • Identify the effects of surface topography on bone formation and cell behavior.
