What a challenge our profession and industry faced last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and in our case at The Dawson Academy, this necessity was a quick pivot to be sure we could meet your 2020 continuing education needs.
In this webinar you will learn the fundamentals of diagnosing and treatment planning a full arch implant-supported prosthesis.
"I wanted to share a bigger picture of the steps we take to treatment plan these cases. You will pay a big price for this on the restorative side if you don't get it right." - John C. Cranham, DDS
Determine what specific data is needed to correct incisal edge position, incisal planes, occlusal planes and vertical dimension.
Compare how occlusal design on all on 4/5/6 cases differs from occlusal design on teeth.
Outline protocols to visualize optimum implant placement, based on tooth position.
Identify the different software options available to properly plan these cases.
Watch Dr. John Cranham's webinar:
One of the most challenging areas in implant dentistry is managing a socket post-extraction.
Specifically, the challenge in how to maintain the socket to allow for an ideal foundation for future implant placement. This webinar will look at the extraction socket from all angles including the biology and how it changes to ways to preserve the socket. Grafting materials and suturing techniques will be discussed along with a video demonstration of a socket preservation on a model.
Learn how to build a team with a common vision for successful restorative and surgical planning process.
We will be learning how to successfully quarterback full mouth implant solutions using a restoratively driven interdisciplinary approach. We will look at everything from how to build the team with a common philosophy to the successful restorative and surgical planning process.
Learn how to deal with the timing of treatment, sequencing and stage treatment protocols.
What do you do when things do not go as planned? Have you ever had an implant fail in the middle of treatment? This presentation will cover how unexpected changes impact the timing of treatment as well as sequencing and staged treatment protocols.
Provide a great service to your patient by guiding the esthetic and functional outcomes and creating long term clinical success.
Implant dentistry has been in demand and a great solution for single and full-arch tooth replacement. Technology has made placement and restoration more efficient but yet we all don't have access to some of these tools. With some back to basics principles in provisional fabrication you can provide a great service to your patient by guiding the esthetic and functional outcomes and creating long term clinical success. Understanding the contour requirements, placement needs and aspect of an ideal implant provisional as well as managing the patients' expectations will allow for long term success.
How to integrate periodontal mucogingival issues alongside comprehensive dental treatment planning and treatment.
The presence of attached gingival tissue plays an important role in attaining and maintaining periodontal health. Gingival anatomy and the etiology, diagnosis, and maintenance of gingival recession will be reviewed, followed by the various corrective mucogingival and grafting procedures. A discussion will include the integration of periodontal mucogingival issues to comprehensive dental treatment planning and treatment.
In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Pio Modi discussing the important considerations when placing single implants.
One of the most important and obvious differences between implants and teeth is the lack of the Periodontal Ligament (PDL). The PDL contains mechanoreceptors that help determine the amount of force being applied to a tooth. This helps act as a safety mechanism for the tooth, so that it is not overloaded with stress.
When we have patients with an existing maxillary denture who want to transition to some type of implant prosthesis, there are many things to consider when we are treatment planning these types of cases. Number of implants, A/P spread, and vertical space are a few important clinical decisions that must be made. The decision to do a fixed or removable prosthesis, however, can be patient driven, meaning, most patients will want a fixed prosthesis if given the choice.
