Zygomatic implants from start to finish

Sep 10, 2022
Snohomish, WA, US
Dr Shuaib Malik
Traditionally, a severely resorbed maxilla with sinus pneumatization would need multiple surgeries including sinus augmentation/lifts and bone grafts to rebuild enough bone mass to create a sufficient foundation for traditional dental implant placement. In severely resorbed cases, zygomatic implants are the only possibility to rehabilitate the patient immediately. Zygomatic implants have been an evidence-based surgical and prosthetic solution since 1999. With the development of the zygomatic implant, the placement of Brånemark System® Zygoma implants has been simplified, which has eliminated the need for bone grafting altogether. Zygomatic implants are developed for the graftless approach in which the implant is directly loaded into the zygomatic bone bilaterally, combined with two to four conventional anterior implants loaded within the alveolar bone, allowing for immediate load and function of a fixed implant-supported prosthesis. Zygomatic implants have revolutionized traditional dental implant techniques and considerations for the severely atrophic patient minimizing surgeries, healing, and overall treatment time. This presentation will discuss critical factors from work-up and pretreatment planning to important considerations for providing an immediate fixed implant-supported restoration. Learning Outcomes: - Understand pretreatment planning, including considerations for the provisional prosthesis. – Be able to review anatomical and biological considerations of the maxilla and zygomatic bone. – Become familiar with and understand the three basic techniques for zygoma implant placement: inter-sinus, extra sinus, and extra-maxillary. – Go over recorded surgical video with live Q&A for detailed understanding. – Discuss management of complications and maintenance of zygomatic implants. – Be familiar with prosthetic solutions for zygomatic implants.

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.

Winnipeg, MB, CA
Ms. Suzie Maxwell
Dr Philip Walton
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.

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.
