When, Why and How to Apply Digital Technology to Prevent Implant Complications | Safe Distance Learning Webinar Series
April 29, 2020 @ 2:00 pm
Implant therapy has been by far the most effective treatment modality to restore patients’ lost oral form and function since Professor P.I. Brånemark’s revolutionary discovery of osseointegration in 1952. Although many cases enjoy long-term success, complications related to both soft and hard tissues supporting dental implants have become increasingly prevalent.
This presentation will discuss efficient and precise methods of identifying various risk factors and prognosis at the time of initial consultation utilizing advanced digital technologies. Various surgical treatment modalities to restore form and function will be discussed. Complications related to esthetically and clinically demanding areas of the anterior maxilla and posterior mandible will be emphasized.
At the completion of this program, each participant will be able to:
- Understand the key determining factors for long-term success criteria: Survival vs Success.
- Identify various sources of surgical complications and their management.
- Understand the concept of digitally guided bone and soft tissue regeneration techniques.
- Learn how to apply minimally invasive techniques to enhance both the alveolar bone and soft tissue defects.
