Since Professor P.I. Brånemark’s serendipity discovery of osseointegration, treatment protocols and concepts for the totally edentulous patient, both surgically and prosthetically, have continuously evolved and pursuit of treating more patients better. This full-day program is for the experienced implant clinician only and will cover both surgical and restorative topics of the latest edentulous solutions. The hands-on aspect of this program will be surgically driven and will focus on the placement of implants into models following the protocol of the All-on-4® treatment concept, Zygomatic implants and the new Trefoil™ solution.
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) describe management strategies of the edentulous maxilla and mandible; 2) explain the concept of diagnostics and treatment options for advanced rehabilitation of edentulous patients; 3) discuss the principles, advantages and biomechanics of the All-on-4® treatment concept, zygomatic implants and the Trefoil™ solution; and 4) determine the best implant positioning, design and length for various edentulous cases.
