Course Overview

Learn How to Achieve Better Clinical Results in the Current State of Dental Implantology

Since the concept of osseointegration was discovered in the 1950’s by Prof. Brånemark, many studies have shown high success rates centered around the functionality of dental implants with no regard for esthetics. The longevity of an implant inserted into bone is no longer an issue, but the longevity of the crowns over these implants and the soft tissue surrounding it are now more important, not only from the functional aspect but also from the esthetic point of view. Another important aspect to be observed is the way the soft and hard tissues behave once an implant receives function.

Implant dentistry is evolving in a rather fast pace, and with it, so are the patient’s expectations regarding their clinical outcomes. With Immediate Implant protocols being a reality, today, it is important we keep updated with the current solutions available in the market and with how they can help all of us clinicians on creating more efficient protocols that are better for the patient, and also easier, faster and more profitable for our practices. To that end, understanding the various ways to restore and the prosthetic components available for tailoring your clinical solutions is key to a successful practice. Digital dentistry is also quickly becoming an important factor in our current standard of care. It is changing the economics, efficiencies and quality of dental treatment. It is not an issue of if you’re going to adopt it, but when. This program will provide an overview of the possible restorative workflows for Implants, including temporary and final restorations, analogic and digital, Implant-level and Abutment-level routes as well as discuss various Implant prosthetic solutions.
