Immediate implant placement can be an effective and convenient treatment for our patients by providing shorter treatment time than delayed implant placement and by preserving also the adjacent soft tissue architecture and alveolar bone.
In the anterior esthetic zone, great care and planning must precede immediate implant placement.
With minimally-invasive surgical techniques, implant placement and minor ridge augmentation will help our patients return to full masticatory and esthetic function quickly. This course will utilize didactic and hands-on workshop to engage and provide different treatments approaches in immediate implant placement and soft tissue management. Attendees will learn:
- Guidelines for immediate implant placement with showing new different techniques such as Socket Shield and Osseodensification
- Guided bone regeneration of single implant sites, and its protocol
- Soft tissue management and the importance of the gingival biotype in dental implant
- Review relevant clinical cases
- Hands on workshop involving Stage II soft tissue management
At the end of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Utilize appropriate protocol for identifying when immediate implant placement can be done
- Determine when guided bone regeneration is needed with immediate implant placement
- Determine when soft tissue augmentation is needed around the implant
- Uncover dental implants in stage II surgery and develop adequate attached gingiva around the implant, which will help promote long term health and stability of the implant
