Salvage of the Failing Implant
Thursday, June 6
6 – 7 p.m. CST

With the improved accessibility to patients and the increased placement of dental implants by all specialties within dentistry, it is only expected that the number of less-than-ideal results also will increase.

This 60-minute webinar will discuss the oral and maxillofacial surgeon's role in the potential salvage of these situations.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Define situations where salvage of an ailing implant should be undertaken.
  • Select cases that have the best potential for salvage and employ the best technique to achieve these results.
  • Recognize the limitations of each technique.
  • Set realistic expectations for the patient.
  • Educate colleagues as to when to refer an "ailing implant" for evaluation and how to recognize telltale signs of impending implant failure.
  • Select the appropriate armamentarium in discrete clinical situations to undertake implant salvage.

Avoiding Augmentation by Using Short and Ultra-short Implants
Thursday, June 13
6 – 7 p.m. CDT

The use of augmentation in conjunction with traditional-length implants has long been considered the standard. With the advent of short and ultra-short implants, the need for augmentation has been greatly reduced.

This 60-minute webinar will review recent long-term studies that confirm short and ultra-short implants show results comparable to standard-length implants placed in combination with augmentations. In addition, operative time is significantly less and morbidity and costs are lower when short and ultra-short implants are used.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Identify those patients who would benefit from short or ultra-short implants.
  • Explain the risks, benefits and potential complications of augmentations and augmentation material.
  • Recognize when the use of short and ultra-short implants is a better option for the patient than augmentation.
  • Offer patients options for their proposed treatment.
