Cases will also be presented that have had prior rehabilitation and now require modifications to restore back to function. A minimally invasive approach to periodontal and implant therapy will be explored, including the proper use of short and narrow implants. Alternatives to traditional bone grafting will be discussed. Designing proper occlusion and restoring lost landmarks with prosthetics will be reviewed.

Upon successful completion of this course, attendees will:

  • Learn sequencing and combining implant, prosthetic and periodontal therapy to reestablish function and aesthetics
  • Learn how to create a risk assessment for long-term case outcomes
  • Understand a biologic approach to implant therapy
