September 2022

The Ultra All-on-4™ solution in general practice.

Sep 15, 2022
Honolulu, HI, US
Dr Michael Meek

The small details of operating a busy dental practice with a growing population of implant outcomes.

Spend three hours with Dr. Meek as he shares the current state of dental hygiene and maintenance protocols for full-arch appliances. Do you take the appliance off at each hygiene visit? When should restorative screws be replaced? Simple questions, but does your practice operate within guidelines? Come and get the skinny on keeping those full-arch restorations healthy.

Photography
In digital workflow, photography is essential. Full arch is a collaborative game and your lab partner needs the best from you so you can get the best from them. This short course in clinical photography will provide guidelines for what type of equipment you’ll need and how to set it up for consistent, solid communication.

Case acceptance
This segment of the course will review both soft skills and hard facts about patient compliance and your dental practice. This section includes information about your practice website and search engine optimization (SEO) strategies to fortify your private practice presence.

Learning objectives

In this course, the participant will...

– Learn about the current guidelines for maintaining full-arch appliances.

– Examine the preop records for full-arch cases using the All-on-4® treatment concept.

– See the verification steps for a master cast in the full-arch workflow.

– Learn the clinical steps of final restoration fabrication.

– See two photographic workflows, fixed singles vs. fixed full arch, to ensure maximum esthetics in your outcomes.

– Learn about consultation efficiency in both single-tooth replacement and full-arch restoration for better case compliance.

– Learn about SEO and its role in the patient’s decision to choose your practice.

Optimal treatment solution for the edentulous patient using the All-on-4® treatment concept: Including long-term maintenance and complications

Sep 23, 2022
Wauwatosa, WI, US
Dr Ken Parrish

Completely edentulous jaws are a much more widespread handicap than most of us realize. Major barriers for solving the problem are the perceived complexity and high cost of treatment. With innovative new solutions, this no longer needs to be the case.

The All-on-4® treatment concept offers a viable and cost-effective implant-based solution for edentulous jaws that produces immediate patient satisfaction. This course will present a surgical and prosthetic overview of the All-on-4® treatment concept, including Immediate Function and full-case rehabilitation.

This course is designed for clinicians who are experienced in placing dental implants.

 

Learning outcomes

After this course, the participant will...

–      Be able to recognize proven alter-natives to grafts and sinus lifts.

–      Have adequate knowledge of affordable screw-retained prostheses.

–      Apply shortened treatment time leading to greater patient acceptance.

–      Be able to identify patient selection—indications and contraindications.

–      Be familiar with medication protocols and prosthodontic rehabilitation options.

–      Confidently implement the All-on-4® treatment concept as a business.

–      Appreciate the biomechanical strengths of tilted implants with passive and precise screw-retained restorations.

–      Understand the most common avoidable problems with fixed detachable restorations and how proper planning and execution can eliminate them.

–      Learn how simple it is to make precise full-arch impressions and to create biomechanically sound fixed restorations.

–      Use occlusion with a shock-absorbing material that protects the underlying implant components and bone interface.

–      Understand a biologically and mechanically driven protocol for maintenance of fixed detachable restorations.

–      Know when, and when not, to remove a fixed detachable restoration as part of a comprehensive maintenance protocol.

Optimal treatment solution for the edentulous patient: Using software to plan3D navigation cases for the using the All-on-4® treatment concept

Oct 29, 2022
Beverly Hills, CA, US
Dr Ken Parrish

Navigated technology has demonstrated the predictability of static guides without many of the challenges/limitations. Three-dimensional navigated implant placement offers much more than routine surgical accuracy and precision. The intuitive software interface makes planning rapid and simple. Patient-satisfying immediacy can then become a realistic routine option. The plan should also be used for education as it allows patients to see their specific condition and appreciate anatomic risks as a necessary prerequisite for informed consent. Just as importantly, demonstrating the technology to the patient is a great practice builder. Educated patients expect to see technology-driven practices and are more likely to gain confidence and place their trust in a progressive dental practice.

The All-on-4® treatment concept offers a viable and cost-effective implant-based solution for edentulous jaws that produces immediate patient satisfaction. This course will present a surgical and prosthetic overview of the All-on-4® treatment concept, using software to plan 3D navigation during the surgery.

Learning outcomes

After this course, the participant will understand...

– The workflow of 3D navigated implant placement from diagnostics through planning and surgical delivery. Included will be how to make any necessary adjustments to the plan even mid-surgery.

– Implant placement, even in immediate sites, can be accurate and precise with real-time feedback and tactile sensitivity maintained. This is critical in cases where bone density has to be monitored during the osteotomy when primary stability with immediate provisionalization is a goal.

– How the efficiency of navigated implant placement using X-Guide® allows routine treatment of patients even on an immediate urgent/emergent basis.

– What prosthetically driven surgical planning can do to improve referral communication and satisfaction and strengthen the referral relationship while growing the practice.
