SATURDAY LECTURE
Technology Advancing Dental Implant Cases

Learning Objectives:

  1. Patient Specific CAD/CAM/VAD Abutment: As patient esthetic demands increase it is important to understand how a patient specific abutment system can increase the long term success and final esthetic result. This lecture will discuss the advantage of patient specific (CAD/VAD/CAM) abutments, the simple procedural steps to use CAD/VAD/CAM abutments and the improved long term maintenance of CAD/VAD/CAM abutments.  A detailed work flow for partially edentulous and fully edentulous cases will be presented to insure a successful case.

  2. Patient Specific Conus Abutment: As patient esthetic demands increase it is important to understand how a patient specific Conus abutment can increase the long term success and final esthetic result and help with patient compliance and hygiene issues. This lecture will discuss the advantage of patient specific Conus abutments, the simple procedural steps to use Conus abutments and the improved long term maintenance of Conus abutments.  A detailed work flow for partially edentulous and fully edentulous cases will be presented to insure a successful case.

  3. Patient Specific Abutment CAD/CAM ISUS substructures: As patient esthetic demands increase it is important to understand how a patient specific substructure system that can increase the long term success and final esthetic result. This lecture will discuss the advantage of patient specific (CAD/CAM) substructures, the simple procedural steps to use CAD/ CAM substructures and the improved long term maintenance of CAD/ CAM substructures.  A detailed work flow for partially edentulous and fully edentulous cases will be presented to insure a successful case.

  4. Patient Specific CAD/CAM/VAD Abutment: Potential technical sensitive areas that will be addressed: how to make an accurate final impression, how to make an accurate master casts,  How to record an accurate bite registration,  how to seat and verify passivity of an FPD, how to managing cement.

  5. Patient Specific Conus Abutment: Potential technical sensitive areas that will be addressed: how to make an accurate final impression, how to make an accurate master casts,  How to record an accurate bite registration,  how to seat and verify passivity of an FPD, how to managing cement.,  how to verify space for Conus abutments, how to pick up Conus abutments, how to prevent locking on during Conus abutments pick up.

  6. Patient Specific Abutment CAD/CAM ISUS substructures: Potential technical sensitive areas that will be addressed: how to diagnose and treatment plan a fully edentulous and partial edentulous case, how to communicate with the laboratory, how to make an accurate final impression, how to make an accurate master casts,  How to record an accurate bite registration,  how to seat and verify passivity of an FPD, how to managing cement.
