This program covers Bone Augmentation Options, including Block Bone Grafting Concepts. These advanced techniques improve surgical capabilities to achieve success and optimum results. The Keys to Bone Grafting are presented in a comprehensive manner. Included is bone anatomy and bone physiology.
Prosthetic Course Three covers the completely Edentulous Implant Treatment Options for Removable and Fixed Prosthetics. A review of generic terminology of implant components and overdentures. Cement versus screw-in prosthesis covers indications and complications and ways to make the procedures more predictable. Bar design and attachment selection types are reviewed in detail to provide knowledge of the best restorative option. Full Arch Fixed Restorations in a step by step prosthetic concept is presented.
Concepts for immediate loading, immediate restorations and progressive bone loading. Four treatment categories are presented: Single tooth implants, multiple adjacent missing teeth, full arch fixed prosthesis and complete overdenture prosthesis. Indications, contraindications and unique complications are presented for each of the four immediate load/restoration procedures. In addition, the C-h moderate bone volume patient is addressed relating to the unique surgical procedures and treatment planning.
Prosthetic Course Two covers details of esthetic single-tooth implant restorations and options for fixed prosthesis and short span fixed prosthesis. Implant design rationale, treatment planning and the principles of cement prostheses are also presented. Correct Abutment selection based on each case depending on design and prosthetic optioins. Several comprehensive case studies are demonstrated to display Implant Protective Occlusion, joining of implants to teeth and Crown height Space considerations.
