Participants will learn all the diagnostic, surgical and prosthetic steps, from A to Z, that will make immediate loading of full arches predictably successful. The focus will be on pre-surgical diagnosis and patient preparation, both restoratively and pharmacologically. Systematic implant placement, anatomically and prosthetically guided, will be covered. The choice of the right abutment at the time of the surgery, plus fast and reliable impression techniques, will be emphasized. There will also be a section on hard and soft tissue augmentation in very atrophic jaws. The right choice implants for each clinical indication will be discussed.
Design and manufacturing guidelines of the provisional and permanent prostheses will be highlighted, as well as the economics aspects of a clinical decision.for bone and soft tissue management in order to ensure sustainable success. The sustainability of a restorative interface is more and more benchmarking the value of clinical concepts and represents the key for aesthetic results the patients are looking for. The amenities of such a concept are highlighted by presenting aesthetically solved cases some of them on a long term basis.
