Edentulous patients and patients with failing dentition who want a fixed prosthetic rehabilitation are often faced with time-consuming, expensive, and uncomfortable bone grafting procedures. The perceived complexity of rehabilitation is a great obstacle to treatment acceptance for these patients and many dental clinicians as well. The All-on-4 treatment concept was developed by Nobel Biocare to eliminate many of the difficulties facing patients and clinicians. It allows for an immediate function, full-arch, implant-supported prosthesis without the need for any bone grating procedures, even in atrophic situations.
In this 2-day program, participants will learn how to assess and select patients for this procedure. A comprehensive surgical and restorative protocol complemented with digital planning and execution will be presented to the participants.The latter will highlight the relevant steps and procedures that are essential in securing a successful outcome for these challenging cases. The participants will have the opportunity to observe the complete surgical and restorative rehabilitation of the patient, from planning to the delivery of a highly functional and esthetic solution supported by 4 implants in anatomically strategic positions, thus dramatically increasing the quality of life for the patient.
This program is aimed at clinicians already familiar with common edentulous treatments, who would like to progress to more complex edentulous treatment modalities and develop their clinical competencies.
Upon completion of this course, participant will :
Understand patient case selection to optimize the overall success of the rehabilitation of the patient.
•Understand the importance of digital tools (CBCT and digital planning softwares, DTX) in the assessment, planning and surgical execution of the All on 4 treatment concept.
•Be familiar with the scientific evidence supporting advanced rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible/maxilla.
•Understand the surgical and prosthetic step-by-step protocol for the All-on-4 treatment concept.
•Understand the challenges of complications of both the surgical and restorative phases of the All-on-4 treatment concept.
•Know how to produce a provisional prosthesis for immediate function and same-day treatment.
