Leisurely Learning in Cape Cod: Secrets of Implant Success

Pool at Night_rgbDental implant restoration has become the treatment of choice for most missing and non-restorable teeth.  From Branemark’s early hybrid restoration perched on 5-6 counter sunk machine screws to current concepts of feature added shapes and surfaces, and complete hard and soft tissue augmentation there has been a steady march of improvement in surgical techniques.  Beneath the development of these procedures lie basic concepts of anatomy, biomechanics and wound healing which hold the keys to success of a long term reconstruction.

Course objectives:

  • Critical areas of concern: evaluation and treatment planning- focus on key problems.
  • Diagnostic aids:  Stents, templates, radiology and common “dental” sense.  When you need it-when you don’t.
  • Extraction technique- preventive bone augmentation, selection and use of barrier membranes and waiting times.
  • How many and when-biomechanics, biology, and site selection.
  • Where do I go when there’s not enough?  Bone and soft tissue grafting.
  • Implant placement-anatomy of teeth, implants, and bone.
  • Finishing procedures- the art of the uncover procedure-advantages of the two stage implant procedure.
