Satellite symposium

The science and biology of immediate implant placement and tooth replacement in anterior region

Speaker: Dr. Joseph Kan

Immediate implant and tooth replacement have become a viable treatment option for replacing failing maxillary anterior teeth. However, potential challenges such as implant and esthetic complications may be encountered. This presentation will focus on the current science, philosophies, and methodologies surrounding these indications including the optimization of esthetic results for immediate tooth replacement procedures.

Maximizing treatment outcomes for immediate implants using digital tools

Speaker: Dr. Roland Glauser

How to effectively use 3D imaging in planning for the tooth to be immediately replaced and restored.
Does real time diagnosis and evaluation of treatment complexity provide immediate gratification for clinician and patient?
Use of digital tools in communication with patients to improve understanding and treatment acceptance.

Molar implants: as simple as possible, as effective as necessary

Speaker: Dr. Georg Watzek

This lecture will focus on the advantages and disadvantages of placing single implants in the posterior region at the time of tooth extraction. Emphasis will be placed on decision and what techniques to be used to minimize the number of treatments. Sci entific support for procedure and protocol will also be discussed in this session.

Managing failing dentitions and their transitions to edentulism

Speaker: Dr. Enrico Agliardi

What are the goals in surgical and prosthodontic therapy for the fully edentulous patient when using the All-on-4® treatment concept? Clinical management of patients will be presented by treatment planning, surgical protocols, and fabrication of both provisional and definitive implant-retained prostheses.
