Implant Restorations: What You Didn’t Learn In School
Presenter: Alfonso F. Piñeyro, DDS
Many of the restorative implant protocols that were developed early on, have changed over time. It is difficult for Universities to adapt to new concepts when the curriculum is from a textbook. The goal is to review the most current concepts from a scientific based perspective and present up-to-date techniques that will be used to develop a suitable protocol for clinical practice. This full day lecture explores many of the problems encountered with cement selection, application techniques, implant occlusion, screw loosening, matching of implant components and gives clinical guidelines based on research that will ensure long-term success.
Attendees will gain valuable and practical information that can be applied immediately to benefit their outcomes.
- Define the importance of cement selection; understand what you need from a cement material.
- Prevent loss of proximal contacts adjacent to your implant restorations.
- Understand the important aspects of implant occlusion.
- Overview of implant screws and what to do to prevent screw loosening.
- Review of abutment design principles.
- Learn techniques to retrieve cement-retained implant restorations.
- Implant Maintenance: What your hygienist needs to know
