Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.
Maximizing Esthetics with Minimally Invasive Surgery Around Implants
Soft tissue deficiencies around implants impact esthetics and often lead to escalating problems. Early recognition and intervention with minimally invasive soft tissue surgery reduces the risk of undesirable sequellae associated with conventional surgical approaches around implants. The application of a minimally invasive soft tissue grafting method will be shown for treatment of soft tissue problems around implants and the indications for use of this technique will be outlined.
Total Rehabilitation of the Edentulous Patient with the All-on-4® treatment concept
A fixed implant supported prosthesis is the ideal treatment option for the edentulous patient and those facing the imminent loss of their remaining dentition. Through innovation, along with continuous clinical and scientific research, it has become possible to treat virtually every edentulous case with a highly functional and esthetic fixed solution. The oral rehabilitation of these patients has two stages: surgical and prosthetic. The surgical protocol follows the All-on-4® treatment concept - an innovative technique developed in the early 90’s at the MALO CLINIC that allows for immediate function, full-arch, implant supported prosthetics.
The Digital Revolution in Patient-Dentist-Lab Communication: The DSD Philosophy
The goal is to design a smile that fits the patients functional, esthetic and emotional needs buy improving the team communication and creating a real interdisciplinary treatment plan. Also increasing case acceptance is paramount by utilizing visual communication, balancing the patients expectation and increasing motivation. Modern techniques and materials can be useless if the final outcome doesn’t achieve the patient esthetic desires. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitations, from simple to complex cases, combining veneers, crowns and implants.
CBCT Planning and Guided Implant Surgery - Surgical and Restorative State-of-the-Art
Implant treatment is one of the most exciting areas of dental therapy. Within the last 30 years, we have been able to develop and discover new techniques, instruments, software and equipment that have made this therapy more secure and predictable, such as the CBCT and the guided surgery, today with the guided systems we are able to have our implants “in the right” place considering the bone, the prosthesis, the biomechanics and the esthetic…this lecture will show you step by step how to reach awesome results in complex full arch cases in a secure and simple way even with immediate extraction and immediate implant placement.
