Etiology and scope of implant complications

Scott Froum, DDS 

Objectives: 

  • Learn about common and uncommon medical ailments that cause implant problems 
  • Discuss how a patient's dental and social history can cause implant complications 
  • Highlight how poor treatment planning can result in implant failure 

This part of the course is designed to discuss the multi-factorial reasons for implant failure and their prevalence. Medical history, dental history, social history will be presented as they relate to implant complications. Case planning and execution will be addressed as well as implant failure that can result from poor treatment planning. 

CEU Credits: 1.5
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Surgical Treatment of complications

Scott Froum, DDS

Objectives: 

  • Discuss various non-surgical implant therapies and when they can be used 
  • Discuss various surgical treatments for peri-implantitis including resective and regenerative therapy 
  • Present a decision matrix for save vs extract implant and various explanation methods 

This part of the course will address surgical and non-surgical correction of implant complications including the effectiveness of non-surgical modalities, surgical therapies with and without grafting, as well as implant explanation.  

CEU Credits: 1
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Advances in Platelet Concentrates & Implant Complications

Richard Miron, DDS, MSc, PhD 

Objectives: 

  • Optimization of protocols for any centrifugation device 
  • Update on Bio-Heat technology and the ability to extend the working properties of PRF from 2-3 weeks to 4-6 months 
  • Launch of the Bio-Cool technology 
  • New uses of PRF in Periodontology and Facial Esthetics 

The use of platelet concentrates has had a long-history of use in various fields of medicine as an autologous source of growth factors fabricated utilizing centrifugation of blood under various conditions. Over the past 10 years, platelet rich fibrin (PRF) has been a steady increase in utilization for a variety of medial procedures due to its lack of anti-coagulation factors favoring fibrin clot formation and faster wound healing. This talk aims to highlight the recent advancements made with respect to the newest formulations of platelet concentrates including recent developments in horizontal centrifugation. Thereafter, the Bio-Heat technology will be presented with an ability to extend the working properties of PRF from 2-3 weeks to 4-6 months. Lastly, new clinical applications and uses of PRF will be presented in periodontology and facial esthetics.

Prosthetic Treatment of Implant complications

Clark Brinton, DMD 

Objectives: 

  • Learn how to recognize and avoid potential restorative complications
  • Identify prosthetic complications that may compromise the functional and biological longevity of implant restorations 

This portion of the course will discuss prosthetic complications unique to implant prosthetic restorations and how to overcome them. Proactive techniques to avoid complications will also be discussed for single tooth and "All-on-X" full arch dental implant treatment. 

CEU Credits: 1.5
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Complications with CAD/CAM & CBCT

Clark Brinton, DMD 

Objectives: 

  • Recognize pitfalls associated with poor planning and execution using digital implant workflows 
  • Learn and implement predictable workflows that will delivery consistent final results 

This portion of the course will cover errors associated with digital workflows for dental implant planning and restoration. Predictable techniques to deliver consistent and accurate results will be discussed. 

CEU Credits: 1
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
The Hidden Costs of Implantology

Chris Salierno, DDS

Objectives: 

  • Examine the hidden costs of providing dental services with a focus on restoring implants 
  • Share strategies for reducing costs and streamlining workflows 
  • Present ways to reduce costs without sacrificing patient outcomes 

Better, faster, cheaper. Dentists are being challenged to improve outcomes of implant care while their practices face pressures to make that care more affordable and efficient. 

CEU Credits: 1.5

 October 15, 2021 | Workshop CEU Credits: 6.5

Dental Implant Complications Workshop

Workshop Overview

 This hands on workshop will review of the etiology and diagnosis of implant complications. ADA dental codes will be discussed as well as letters of explanation representing various complication treatments. CAD/CAM and CBCT complications will be reviewed. Hands-on customized models as well as animal jaws will be used to teach attendees how to correct various surgical and prosthetic implant complications, such as prosthetic misfit, poor embrasure form leading to food traps, prosthetic screw fracture and retrieval, implant facture, and periimplantitis induced soft and hard tissue loss. Attendees will be taught various techniques for implant surface decontamination. In addition various techniques for tissue repair will be introduced including how to fabricate and use platelet rich fibrin. This course is taught by a general dentist and periodontist.
