SYNOPSIS:

Immediate Implant: Lecture & Hands-On
Immediate implant place-ment and immediate provisionalization has gained popularity because it may reduce treatment time and the number of surgical interventions. A recent systematic review of the scientific evidence supports immediate implant placement as a safe procedure when certain guidelines are followed. This course will focus on all aspects of immediate implant placement and immediate provisionalization, including atraumatic extraction instrumentation and techniques, immediate implants in molar sites, management of extraction sites with labial wall defects, fabrication of an immediate chairside provisional and much more. Discussion will focus on some of the most commonly asked questions, such as which is the best graft material to use to graft the gap? What type of interim provisional restorations to use in order to minimize tissue loss? What decisions should be made regarding immediate implant placement versus delayed implant placement. This course is designed for the novice and advanced clinician and is the first in our series on implant site development and bone grafting.

Immediate Provisionalization: Lecture & Hands-On
There are many ways to effectively provisionalize the immediate implant, and in this presentation several options will be discussed. These options include cement retained and screw retained provisionals, utilizing either temporary abutments or definitive abutments. Also techniques for utilizing prefabricated crown forms and vacu-formed matrices will be discussed. Different material choices will be presented, such as poly-methylmethacrylate (PMMA) acrylic resins and dimethacrylate (Bis GMA) composite resins. And finally the advantages and disadvantages of the different techniques and different materials will be analyzed.

  • Know principles of proper implant positioning
  • Perform minimally invasive tooth removal techniques and instrumentation
    • Remove broken and difficult teeth with minimal flap
