Course Description Traditional restorative dentistry relies on cementation to attach restorations to natural teeth. Although dentists are relatively proficient in this area, they are often less familiar using cements with dental implants restorations. Several techniques and products have been developed for cementing implant-retained restorations, however, existing protocols may vary from practice to practice. Many types of cement are problematic; some corrode titanium and most are undetectable on radiographs. This lecture will examine these issues and give up-to-date and as-of-yet unpublished research data that in order to determine a suitable protocol for use in clinical practice.

Tuesday April 11, 2017.  Speaking will be Andre B. de Souza, DDS, MSc

Challenging Peri-Implant Bone Remodeling: Implant-Abutment Configuration and Hard Tissue Stability

 Course Description:  Peri-implant bone remodeling after implant placement is a physiological process that occurs as a part of the establishment of peri-implant biologic width. Several attempts have been made to minimize the amount of peri-implant bone remodeling. Clinical trials have shown that the platform switching concept leads to superior results in terms of the amount of peri-implant bone loss. We will also review how the abutment geometry could also influence the amount of peri-implant bone remodeling and how CAD-CAM technology could be used to design appropriate abutment configuration in order to favor the peri-implant soft tissue adaptation and reduce bone modeling.
