Mastering Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone
Next Upcoming Session:
Overview & Learning Objectives
This course will help keep you abreast of the latest implant placement and restorative protocols in the Esthetic Zone. Four (4) proven surgical and prosthetic protocols will be presented and reviewed. According to Dr. Barksdale, “Understanding the morning lectures and participating in the afternoon hands-on simulation training will enable you to better diagnose and identify when immediate implants are indicated and the benefits they offer. You will better understand how to engineer prosthetic restorations that obtain maximum results, and understand specific procedures that facilitate both immediate and delayed implant placements to ensure success."
Immediate & Delayed Placement Protocols (The Morning Lecture)
After attending and listening to each of the morning lectures, participants should be better able to learn, understand, and remember:
- four proven surgical protocols to treat implants in the esthetic zone
- the benefits of Immediate Implants and why you should be placing Immediate Implants
- when you should delay implant placement and not do Immediate Implants
- how to match the best surgical protocol to your specific patient case to increase success
- how to manage the “jump gap” and “tissue zone” and why it is critical for success
- how to select implant size to achieve maximum results
- established prosthetic design principles to support tissue and bone growth
- how implant position and prosthetic design can reduce the need for soft tissue grafting
- principles and materials for grafting the gap/tissue zone/bone zone to enhance success
Surgical & Prosthetic "Hands-On" Training (Afternoon Training)
The afternoon simulation training focuses on the following (5) "hands-on" exercises using one custom designed multi-purpose model to accomplish the following:
- a Partial Extraction procedure (also known as P.E.T. or Socket Shield) on an anterior tooth
- an immediate implant placement and learn how implant size and position can be critical for esthetic success
- fabricate a custom screw-retained provisional using design principles that better enhance bone and soft tissue healing; as well as, use and understand the instruments and implant components to fabricate a screw-retained provisional
- place bone graft in the gap, as well as, the bone and soft tissues
- fully ratchet a complete Screw-Retained Provisional to place
Because of their participation in the afternoon "hands-on" training, participants should be much better able to apply, remember and learn:
- the benefits of immediate implant placement and immediate prosthetic provisionalization
- the four proven Surgical Protocols to treat extraction and immediate implant placement
- how to match the best surgical protocol to their specific patients' needs to increase success
- the established Prosthetic design principles to facilitate bone and soft tissue growth
- how prosthetic design can reduce or eliminate soft tissue grafting
- the principles and materials for grafting the gap/tissue zone/bone zone to enhance success
