Implant Treatment in the Aesthetic Zone

Course Overview:
Implant dentistry is now part of routine dental treatment. It is no longer enough for an implant to merely osseointegrate; it must be aesthetic as well. The maxillary anterior dental implant is perhaps the most challenging for the clinician. A multiplicity of techniques must be mastered including but not limited to ideal implant placement, proper surgical technique, bone augmentation, soft tissue development and proper restoration.

Bone Grafting and Tissue Management for the Implant Platform: The Success and Failures; How to Avoid the Unexpected Result

Course Overview:
Clearly, implant therapy has become a major portion of dental treatment. Bone grafting and associated therapies are integral to the success of the implant fixture. Whether the implant is placed in the anterior or posterior part of the dental arch, proper tissue environment is crucial to the success. Failures in this area of treatment are now common place and need to be addressed as to cause and the solution. New technologies are now part of the solution and reduce many of these complications.

"Aesthetics, Implants and Occlusion": Using Computerized Dentistry for Private Practice

Course Overview:
Over the past 10 years there have been advances in dentistry that have helped our practice and our patients. Delivering excellent restorations using computerized techniques can make it easier and more predictable. A step by step approach of treatment planning, provisionals and final restorations will be described. Long term implant restorations require provisionals that can maintain and preserve the dentition during the healing phase. These materials will be discussed. In addition, new protocols for aesthetic analysis and smile design will be highlighted. Occlusion philosophy will be discussed for implant restorations and porcelain restorations so that they will remain in function.

Young Patients and Aesthetic Single Implant Outcomes

Course Overview:
Teenagers and young adults represent a large and growing segment of potential implant patients. The majority of young patients are seeking implant care in the aesthetic zone primarily due to congenital absence and trauma. With proper treatment planning and collaboration between members of the implant team, young patients can avoid the ravages of conventional dental procedures and ensure long term functional and aesthetic success. In addition to the oral surgeon, periodontist and restorative dentist, the orthodontist and pediatric dentist are key team members in the treatment of young patients. This presentation includes guidelines for treating young patients with implants including appropriate age and maturity, cost and value of implant treatment, the essential role of the orthodontist in site preparation, developing soft-tissue profiles, immediate placement and provisional restorations, and clinical examples and data highlighting long term results.
