Full-arch implant restoration courses
More than 275 million people are affected by edentulism and severe tooth loss, and the global prevalence of these conditions has increased by 27% between 2005 and 2015.1 As a result there is extensive demand for full-arch rehabilitation.1 There are many treatment options available and it is important that patients understand the advantages and disadvantages of each option. One available solution is a fixed prosthesis. Edentulous patients have been treated with them for more than 20 years, and a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery has been shown to quickly lead to improved patient satisfaction – with regards to function, esthetics, sense, speech and self-esteem.2,3
The right education level for your needs
These courses cover the All-on-4® treatment concept – a cost-efficient, graftless solution that provides patients with a provisional fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery* – and the newly-launched Trefoil system. It is a breakthrough in efficiency for treating the edentulous mandible with a fixed and definitive prosthesis on the day of surgery.**
If you are proficient in implant placement at an advanced level, you can further develop your skills in full-arch rehabilitation with these advanced and expert level courses. Learn from industry experts how to: identify cases where the clinical status is favorable for the All-on-4® treatment concept or the Trefoil system; select the appropriate components and techniques; execute the implant treatment and provide your edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous patients fixed new teeth on the same day of surgery.** Our lectures will show you treatment planning, surgical techniques and all possible prosthetic solutions.
The All-on-4® treatment concept
In 1998 Dr. Paulo Malo successfully treated the first patient with the All-on-4® treatment concept. Since then hundreds of thousands of patients have been treated with this concept using Nobel Biocare implants. The concept is a cost-efficient, graftless solution for both maxilla and mandible that provides patients with a fixed provisional full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.*
The Trefoil system is a breakthrough in efficiency for treating the edentulous mandible with three implants and a fixed and definitive prosthesis delivered on the day of surgery.** Using a pre-manufactured titanium bar with a unique retention mechanism, it can adjust to compensate for inherent deviations from the ideal implant position and enable the passive fit of the definitive prosthesis.4
*If patient criteria is met and adequate stability achieved.
**Depending on clinician preference and close cooperation with the laboratory.
