How to make sure implants stay successful through improved techniques and communication with your lab


by Dr. John Nosti

Short course description
This course covers principles and techniques that can help minimize the incidence of implant failure, including bone density, implant width, implant placement positioning, lab communication and follow- up appointments with the patient after restorations have been delivered and placed.

Abstract
Implants continue to be sought-after treatments by patients worldwide, because they can replace missing teeth functionally and cosmetically without aggressive treatment to the adjacent dentition. Using the right treatment planning guidelines and prosthetic recommendations, dentists and patients should experience lasting success with reduced complications and failures.
This course covers principles and techniques that can help minimize the incidence of implant failure, including bone density, implant width, implant placement positioning, lab communication and follow- up appointments with the patient after restorations have been delivered and placed.

Educational objectives
Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to achieve the following:

  • Understand how the Hounsfield unit measurements in the targeted edentulous space should affect treatment planning for implants.
  • Understand the benefits of using a wider-diameter implant as related to increased surface area.
  • Understand the unfavorable factors that result if implants are not placed perpendicular to the occlusal table.
  • Understand the changes in bite-force ability that various types of opposing dentition can be responsible for.
  • Understand the benefits of splinting adjacent implant crowns together.
