    Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio


    Many advances have occurred over the last several years in surgical implant dentistry and regenerative therapies. It is essential for the practicing OMS to understand the science and clinical applications of procedures performed every day. Evidence for bone regeneration vs. “graftless” solutions is a source of controversy in the field today. Implant survival is greater than 95% in most short-term and some long-term studies, but these favorable outcomes depend greatly on proper case selection, careful diagnosis, comprehensive treatment planning, and skillful execution of restorative and surgical techniques. Although most implant surgeons and restorative dentists know that maintenance is required after implant therapy, there are no universally accepted schedules, techniques, or guidelines recommended. This course will update the practicing clinician on the recent advances in the field of implant dentistry. Areas of discussion will include treatment planning, site development, materials and techniques for alveolar ridge augmentation, peri-implant maintenance, and new technologies.

    Learning Objectives
    • To review complex implant therapy, focusing on diagnosis and treatment planning
    • To understand available evidence for bone regeneration vs. “graftless” implant therapy in the edentulous maxilla
    • To identify risk factors, properly diagnose, and treat peri-implant diseases
    • To discuss prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of implant complications
