Scott Froum: Surgical Techniques to Treat Failing and Failed Implants
Attendees will learn how to surgically correct various dental implant complications including violations of anatomy, soft and hard tissue defects, and bacterially induced implant disease. New technologies will be presented that can prevent failure in systemically compromised patients. During the hands-on portion of this workshop, attendees will use customized real-life soft and hard tissue anatomical models.
• Learn how to retrieve implants from invasions of sinus, nerves, and teeth as well as how to retrieve implants from the maxillary sinus.
• Discover how to correct bone and soft tissue problems around implants.
• Identify non-invasive soft tissue harvesting techniques and the role of keratinized tissue around implants.
• Determine how lasers can help to fix hard tissue loss around dental implants and treat nerve pain caused by failed bone grafts and implants.
• Distinguish when an implant can be saved and when it should be removed.
• Discover new technology to treat immunocompromised patients seeking implant therapy.
Clark Brinton: Prosthetic Factors Contributing to Implant Failure
During this portion of the workshop, attendees will learn how to prosthetically correct various dental implant complications including broken abutment screws, stripped or fractured implant screws, non-fitting multiunit prosthesis, ill-fitting full span supra-structures, over-contoured pontics, and abutments with poor embrasure form. Digital workflow will be introduced from impression to delivery.
• Learn how to fix broken implant and abutment screws and to design proper emergence profiles.
• Identify problems with multi-unit abutments and large span supra-structures.
• Recognize problems with digital workflow systems and discuss missteps in digital workflow that can lead to failure.
• Identify common reasons for implant crown-abutment-implant misfit.
• Determine why implant crowns become loose.
During the hands-on portion of the workshop, attendees will learn:
• How to explant implants and retrieve broken implant screws.
• How to build hard and soft tissue.
• How to place implants in the correct three-dimensional prosthetic position then augment around it.
• Confirm how to retrieve implants from the maxillary sinus.
• Discover the steps involved in documenting and treating implants placed in or too close to the lingual or inferior alveolar nerve.
• Identify mistakes made in digital workflow design and with digital impression.
