Implants: The Restorative Solutions and Challenges Long Term

Face the truth, not every implant is placed in the ideal position and not every patient has the ideal setting for the final restoration. The challenges can be many, such as access via limited vertical opening, limited vertical interocclusal distance, even tissue challenges and proximal issues are to name a few. Is this complicated, heck no! But to think, “Oh, I just will take an impression and let the lab decide or the surgeon" simply isn’t the reality today!

Whether to utilize the traditional single screw one-piece approach, the cementable crown, or even the combination termed the hybrid approach, are all viable options in implant dentistry. As the restorative dentist, you must understand what your options are for long term success. Treatment coordination and planning for optimum results often involves superior diagnostics utilizing CBCT imaging and the latest options in digital scanning for communication with both the patient and lab. It’s 2019, let’s get up to date with today’s technologies and expectations!

Highlights

  • CBCT: Why this is not just for the surgeon but far more for every GP and everyday challenges that 2D imaging can’t see
  • Today’s initial exam: How to increase the patient saying “Yes” to treatment via today’s diagnostics and technologies
  • Case presentations that are step by step to take back to the “chair” Monday
  • Which cement is the only biocompatible cement for implant cemented crown
  • Immediate temporization, the technique and why the “flipper” really belongs in the ocean for most cases
  • Stock abutments versus milled, oh be serious…
  • ADD general restorative dentistry combination cases
  • Long term issues and maintenance approaches and yes, you need to know what future issues will be!
