Duration: 1 day

Location: Jacksonville, NC

CE: 8hours

Fee: $1,795

Course Descrition:
Predictably excellent function and esthetics of implant prostheses are obtained when the final prosthesis goals are clearly defined prior to implant surgical treatment. To minimize the frequency of severeity of many complications, we must avoid having implants surgically placed and later determining the prosthesis design based on post-surgical implant position. This presentation is amined at explaining the interrelationship of implant-supported prosthesis design requirements to implant surgical placement requirements for achieving excellence in long-term function and esthetics.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this presentation, attendees should be able to answer the following questions:

  • How do we make an implant crown look like a natural tooth growing out of gingiva?
  • How do we know how many implants we need?
  • How do we design implant occlusion?
  • Where do the clinical crowns to teeth belong in the edentulous space and how does that requirement relate to prosthesis design, bone resorption pattern, bone grafting requirements, and vertical/horizontal implant surgical placement requirements?
  • What are my prosthesis design options for the completely edentulous or partially edentulous patients?
  • What are the relative risks and benifites of screw-retained versus cement-retained implant-supported prostheses?
  • How does bone remodeling after extraction affect implant surgical placement position and prosthesis design?
  • How can we predict and prosthetically compensate for insufficient vertical gingival volume in the esthetic zone?
  • What are the vertical space requirements for each type of implant prosthesis design?
  • What do patients need to know about how implant prostheses are different from natural teeth?
