2nd ITI Education Week Pretoria
Aesthetic Implant Dentistry:
Contemporary Prosthodontic and Surgical Techniques for Sustainable Results
July 15 - 19, 2015

Association

In association with the Oral and Dental Hospital, University of Pretoria

Content

 

 

This course will cover implant dentistry in the Straightforward and Advanced categories of the SAC classification, both in terms of theory, live cases and hands-on.

Participants will train on phantom heads to simulate the oral environment as closely as possible. Surgical soft tissue management will be presented through demonstrations and hands-on training on animal models (sheep’s heads). Surgical hands-on training will cover flap design, suture techniques and soft tissue grafting procedures. Hands-on management of minor hard- and soft-tissue defects will be covered on animal heads, using particulate grafting material and resorbable membranes. Prosthodontic principles of aesthetic implant dentistry will be covered in detail, including principles of occlusion, bite registration, CAD-CAM prostheses and technical aspects of laboratory work. Hands-on prosthodontic training will include impression-taking, provisional prostheses and live demonstration of cases.

Participants will be tutored in detail on the pathogenesis of peri-implant and periodontal diseases, their treatment and supportive therapy. Cases will be work-shopped to give delegates first-hand experience of managing such patients.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this Education Week, participants will be able to:

  • Diagnose, classify and manage periodontal and peri-implant disease
  • Draw up a treatment plan for the replacement of lost teeth in the anterior maxilla (aesthetic zone)
  • Place an implant correctly in the anterior maxilla, take impressions and manufacture provisional
    crowns and bridges on implants in the aesthetic zone
  • Design and perform different surgical flaps on sheep’s heads
  • Use different suturing techniques for soft-tissue management
  • Manage minor hard- and soft-tissue defects using particulate grafting and resorbable membranes

Topics

  • Diagnosis, classification and management of periodontal/ peri-implant disease
  • Dento-facial aesthetics
  • Occlusion – natural teeth versus implants
  • Treatment planning: the single missing and multiple missing teeth in the anterior maxilla
  • Bone physiology and healing, including particulate graft materials used in guided bone regeneration
  • Autogenous bone as a graft material in implant dentistry
  • Ethics in Implantology
  • Computed tomography and related software in implant planning
  • Risk assessment from an anatomic and surgical point of view
  • Extraction technique and post-extraction ridge alterations in the aesthetic zone
  • Correct 3D implant placement in aesthetic sites
  • Post-extraction implant placement with simultaneous contour augmentation: when and how?
  • Surgical handling of aesthetic complications and failures
  • Assessment of treatment difficulty and risk to outcomes in the aesthetic zone
  • Prosthodontics management of peri-implant tissues – prior and subsequent to implant placement
  • Provisional restorations for partially and completely edentulous patients
  • Demystifying abutment, restorative materials and morphology in implant dentistry
  • Digital planning and prosthodontics in implant dentistry – from planning placement to prosthodontics
