Although these systems are becoming ubiquitous, their strengths and limitations must be understood. This presentation will take a critical look at the effectiveness of digital workflows used in full arch rehabilitation including: digital treatment planning using multiple datasets, linked digital workflows, guided implant surgery, prototypes and minimally veneered zirconia restorations.

MM-6 Strategies for Managing Severe Implant Failures in the Aesthetic Zone
Speaker(s) :
• Bach Le, DDS, MD
• The predictability and long-term success rate of dental implants is well documented in the literature. Nevertheless, complications and failures do occur, requiring implant removal. Failing implants and the consequences of implant removal usually results in significant loss of hard and soft tissues and jeopardize efforts to achieve satisfactory function and esthetics. This lecture will discuss treatment modalities to deal with dental implant failure in the esthetic zone. When an implant fails, a customized treatment plan should be provided for each patient depending on the relevant needs. Patients should be informed regarding all possible treatment options and that achieving an ideal esthetic result in the compromised site is often elusive and in many cases, impossible.
• Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) identify risk factors associated with early and late implant failures; 2) explain the difference between patient-related versus site-related etiology for implant failures; and 3) describe treatment options for managing and replacing failed implants in the esthetic zone.

MM-7 Modular Bone Augmentation (MBA) for 3D Reconstruction of Compromised Bone


Speaker(s) :
• Homayoun Zadeh, DDS, PhD
• Patients with atrophic alveolar bone have a variety of different presentations, including vertical versus horizontal atrophy, anatomic features such as flat versus sloped defect walls or concavities, various bone density (e.g. cortical versus cancellous bone). Each of these features can affect the efficacy of bone augmentation, either in a favorable or unfavorable manner. Therefore, the approach utilized needs to thoroughly analyze and classify site and patient characteristics in order to select an appropriate technique, material and protocol. Another consideration is the potential of complication for the selected protocol and a risk assessment to determine the likelihood of encountering negative outcomes based on patient features. Modular Bone Augmentation (MBA) refers to an approach, which is based on the convergence of several components required for successful bone regeneration. MBA will employ different components based on requirements of individual patient and site.
• Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) describe patient and site features which have to be considered and classification of defect morphology; 2) list the components of MBA and selection criteria for the choice of technique, material and protocol; and 3) describe the steps of the most common bone augmentation techniques.

MM-8 Current Topics and Techniques in Implant Overdentures and Implant Retained Partial Dentures in Clinical Practice


Speaker(s) :
• Robert Vogel, DDS
• The use of dental implants has become the standard of care for partial and fully edentulous patients. In order to obtain predictable, consistent, stress-free results numerous clinical factors will be explored. This fast-moving clinical based presentation designed for private practice will provide a systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment of the fully and partially edentulous patient with removable prosthesis including overdentures and implant retained partial dentures. Scientifically based tips, tricks, techniques will be presented to assure long-term success with precision, productivity and profitability. Issues discussed will include ideal number of implants, attachment selection criteria and a foolproof formula for fee determination and patient presentation techniques all aimed at simplification and predictability of implant retained prosthesis.
• Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) obtain stress-free, predicable results with removable implant prosthesis; 2) incorporate state-of-the-art techniques into private practice; 3) transition from removable to fixed prosthetics within their practice; and 4) recognize the patient benefits from ideal treatment.

MM-9 Guided Tissue Shaping for Peri-Implant Esthetics 

Speaker(s) :
• Frank Higginbottom, DDS
• The use of root form dental implants in the “Esthetic Zone” has attracted significant popularity in recent years. There are several approaches to the treatment of the esthetic sites. The implant may be placed in a non-submerged fashion or submerged in a two-stage format. With all of the advances in implant dentistry, the anterior restoration still seems to be the center of attention. The implant must appear as a natural tooth. After all is said and done the implant crown needs to be indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth. As technicians we tend to concentrate on parts and pieces and the final color of the crown. The true test of an esthetic restoration is however the appearance of the soft tissues that surround the implant. Soft tissues provide the framework for a beautiful restoration. The facial soft tissues and particularly the interproximal tissues are very important for esthetics. It will be shown that the provisional restoration is the most important means of shaping and developing the peri-implant soft tissues as well as providing a template for the final restoration. A true soft tissue model generated from the provisional also provides laboratory communication.
• Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) provide evaluation of esthetic risk factors; 2) discuss pre-requisites for success; 3) explain the importance of provisional restorations to shape the transition zone; and 4) explain the importance of treatment planning.

Also, this treatment method will vary between single and multiple implant restorations. Dr. Suzuki will share his clinical cases and respective treatment methods divided into cases of both single and multiple implant restorations.
• Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) describe the multiple causes of gingival recessions in peri-implants; 2) discuss the efficacy of applying CTG in peri-implant gingival recessions; and 3) explain the three major counter-measures of peri-implant gingival recessions and their respective usages.
