Program Track: Implant Surgery and Prosthetic Rehabilitation
Stephen F. Balshi
Graziano D. Giglio
Dr. Graziano D. Giglio will speak from 10:45 – 11:30 a.m.
Stephen F. Balshi will speak from 11:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
Dental implant procedures should be prosthetically driven. The ability of the periodontist to place a fixed provisional restoration at the time of surgery results in optimal soft tissue esthetics, improved patient care, and fewer coordinated visits with the restorative dentist. With intra-oral scanning and laboratory CAD/CAM technology, it is possible to design a virtual implant treatment plan that is dictated not just by the bone and soft tissue, but also by the restoration. This course will review different digital workflows that includes intra-oral scanning and laboratory technology to aid the periodontist in developing a successful virtual implant planning. In addition, it will cover provisionalization for both immediate loading and delayed loading scenarios.
- Illustrate how the use of an intra-oral scanner can provide the dental laboratory the necessary data to generate provisional restorations prior to implant placement.
- Review treatment options and techniques for fixed provisionalization during implant therapy.
- Discuss the various restoration options for full-arch implant rehabilitations, including material selection, type of prosthesis, and relative cost to one another.
- Discuss fixed provisionalization for both immediate implant loading and delayed implant loading.
