New Prosthodontic Paradigms to Achieve Restoratively Driven Implant Dentistry Through Innovations in Technology 

Successful implant reconstruction is dependent upon many factors; pre-surgical diagnosis and treatment planning, anticipation of the anticipated restorative result, proper occlusion, soft tissue management, and surgical guidance to insure suitable spatial positioning, fixation. The diagnostic phase is the foundation and innovations in implant and abutment design aid in the esthetics, function, and long term prognosis.

New surgical and prosthodontic paradigms have now been established which utilize advances in CT/CBCT imaging technology allowing clinicians an unprecedented appreciation of the patient's anatomy for pre-surgical assessment of dental implant receptor sites, bone grafting or other procedures. This presentation will demonstrate how new paradigms in pre-surgical planning can aid in the assessment implant receptor sites, soft tissue emergence profiles, determination of interproximal height of bone in 3-D, abutment selection, occlusal considerations, temporization, and how the ultimate esthetic and functional result can be achieved through various case illustrations.

Course Objectives:

  • Learn about new 3-D diagnostic, treatment planning concepts and the “Reality of Anatomy.”
  • Understand tools to analyze implant receptor sites, and the “Triangle of Bone” concept.
  • Learn how to predict implant abutments in advance of treatment, and the differences between fixture level and abutment level impressions.
