After attending to this course, the participant will appreciate the importance of the teamwork approach in Implant Dentistry.
Implant therapy is a prosthetic treatment with a “Surgical component”. The restorative dentist is leader of the team. He will examine and analyze the case, and together with the surgeon after studying the radiographic views, will set the final treatment plan, sequencing the periodontal and endodontic treatments, if needed.
Topics 1: Multidisciplinary approach in implant dentistry.
The key to success in implant dentistry is a multidisciplinary approach. We will pass in review different dental situations where only a teamwork is necessary to achieve a good result and prognosis.
3 main areas will be discussed:
- Ortho-integration where in complex cases the collaboration of the orthodontist with the restorative dentist is necessary.
- Complex full mouth reconstructions
- Maxillo-Facial deformities due to trauma or congenital causes.
The smile dynamics and the single tooth replacement:
- Analyzing the smile elements
- Changes of the smile due to aging, esthetic fillings, tooth movement, etc.
- The single tooth replacement protocol, Crown down concept
- Radiographic guide
- Surgical guide
- Immediate impression and temporization
Topic 2: The Ten common surgical mistakes in implant dentistry: Avoidance and management
We will limit our presentation to the iatrogenic factors, i.e. induced inadvertently by the dentist or his treatment. How to avoid and manage these complications namely:
- Inferior alveolar nerve injury
- Wrong alignment of the implants
- Perforation of the sinus membrane during sinus lift procedure
- Poor assessment of the bone volume
- Lack of communication: surgeon, patient
- Injury of the floor of the mouth
- Burned bone syndrome
- Poor perio-implant planning
- Poor surgical technique
- Poor assessment of the root canal treatment
- Study of the screw function
- Concept of screw loosening
- The connections
- The impact of the function on the screw and the connection
- The fractures and type of treatments
