General Membership Dinner Meetings are at no cost for M-OCDS members and $90 for non-members payable at the door.
This presentation will provide you with a comprehensive overview of diagnosis and treatment planning in Implant Dentistry. It is prudent first to evaluate accurate diagnosis and treatment planning for long term outcome. Owing to the significant amount of knowledge and experience that must be incorporated by practitioners who provide dental implant therapy, it follows that a primary factor responsible for complications and failures is often related to misdiagnosis and inadequate treatment planning. Topics covered will include extraction and immediate implant placement, provisionalization, and Immediate loading
This presentation will enable you to:
- understand the biological considerations and clinical realities for implant surgery
- evaluate the essential parameters necessary for the diagnosis, treatment planning, and integration of implant restorations in order to achieve successful rehabilitation of patients and avoid treatment complications
- Understand and identify the factors that can cause complications and diagnose them before treatment
- To describe the proper sequence of diagnosis and treatment planning, which when combined with proper surgical and restorative therapy may avoid many of the complications seen with implant therapy today
