Restorative therapy for dental implantology has been described as everything from a “slam-dunk” to complicated. At times, this discipline has been referred to as entirely frustrating. Why is there such a disparity in perspectives on restoring dental implants? The bottom line: Planning. In this Super-Symposium, two distinct perspectives will be offered on this topic.
In part one, Utopia will be described using a comprehensive planning approach to implant prosthetics.
In part two, Dystopia will be discussed along with the “what-if” perspective when things do not go as planned.
This will be followed by a short panel discussion at the end.
Part One, “Utopia” with Chad Duplantis, DDS, FAGD, will cover the following topics:
- Implant diagnostics and considerations.
- Developing a full team approach through appropriate communication… digitally!
- Restorative options and considerations for single units and implant bridges.
Part Two, “Dystopia” with Miles Cone, DMD, CDT, FACP, will cover the following topics:
- Communication with the laboratory including critical material choices, restorative philosophies, and shade selection.
- Worst-case scenarios in treatment planning.
- Fixed, Removable and combined implant prosthetics.
- Patient Case-studies (Good-bad examples)
Part Three: Panel Discussion with Chad Duplantis, DDS, FAGD, Miles Cone, DMD, CDT, FACP, and Jeffrey W. Horowitz, DMD, FAGD.
- Round-Table discussion on implant perspectives
- Question/Answer period
