With the advancements in implant dentistry, opportunities are readily available for practitioners to treat an increasing and expanding population of patients. With that in mind, the needs of patients have expanded beyond the traditional treatment of extract, implant, and simple restoration protocols. This lecture will focus on the importance of planning and coordinating when seeking better restorative outcomes for both simple and complex cases. Review from the basic straightforward simple implant case to the much more elaborate and complex rehabilitation. The use of interdisciplinary planning and sequencing of the treatment begins with the end in mind. This can have a dramatic effect on both the patient’s perception and the clinician's ability to provide previously unattainable options and outcomes.

Course Objectives:

To teach the treatment options available to patients seeking implant treatment.
To understand the fundamental but essential principles required in treating both simple and complex implant cases.
To understand the interdisciplinary approach in treatment planning for an implant.
To provide an understanding of how to sequence a treatment plan for a more predictable outcome.
To understand esthetic and biomechanical objectives and limitations for various treatment options.
To review treatment protocols from simple to complex for implant treatments.
To understand how to prevent and manage implant complications.

You will leave this course knowing how to:
• Treatment plan from simple to complex implant cases
• Sequence the treatment plan for a simple and predictable outcome of treatment
• Choose a fixed implant restoration over a removable implant overdenture
• Treat the site minimizing future implant complications.

Topics taught:

• Assessing if the edentulous site is best for implant or conventional treatment
• Necessary data collection required for implant treatment planning
• Surgical stent requirement for optimal implant placement
• Impression techniques - Open vs. Closed tray technique: Which is better?
• Soft tissue management and provisionalization for optimum esthetics
• Fixed vs. Removable treatment: how to assess which is the best treatment for each case
• Single vs. Fixed partial denture: why a single implant is the most complicated treatment and how to ensure success
• Biomechanical principles that need to be established for restorative success
• Occlusion for implant therapy
• Proper materials and procedures to minimize cost of treatment
• Preventing complications
