Despite the tremendous advances in implant dentistry, we still see too many prostheses that are uncleansable, not functionally stable, or esthetically displeasing because implants weren’t placed in the proper position. Determining where the teeth need to be from a functional, phonetic and esthetic standpoint PRIOR to implant placement is the key to long-term success.
In this class you will be working through thru two cases start-to-finish. Printed mandibles and maxillas of the actual patient and all of the diagnostic data will be provided. You will go through the process of treatment planning the case 3-dimensionally, relating the desired tooth position to the CBCT. You will also:
- Determine the virtual placement of the implants
- Design the guides and milled provisional
- Place the implants into the printed models (simulating guided surgery)
- Place the multilevel abutments and immediately load the provisional
Each step of the process will be illustrated by recordings of the surgery and prosthodontic procedures at each stage.
