Program Track: Implant Surgery and Prosthetic Rehabilitation
Course Description: This course will aid periodontists in developing confidence in immediate implant treatment modalities. Dr. Wagenberg placed his first immediate implant in January 1988. By decreasing the number of surgical procedures patients must endure, decreasing both the time in treatment and costs for the patient, implant therapy becomes the treatment of choice for patient care. Many therapists with minimal surgical training are now placing implants with differing results. It is important for all periodontists to be engaged and have an expertise in treating the more involved and difficult therapies. There will be a comprehensive discussion of immediate implant placement, immediate tooth replacement, and immediate loading along with video demonstrations. In addition, a newer concept of immediate placement in deficient sites will be introduced.
• Determine how to decide whether to place implants immediately into an extraction site.
• Obtain knowledge on how to approach difficult implant placements.
• Learn about the benefits and potential complications of immediate implant placement and how to avoid them.
