Pathways to Predictable Planning


Pathways to Predictable Planning

Course Overview

Treatment planning is the essential firststep for successful implant placement and related dental procedures. In this 2½-day course, attendees will learn how to present the advantages and disadvantages of each option to their patients with appropriate word choice and visual aids. A systematic flow chart will be provided to simplify treatment planning and make implant cases more predictable, whether the case calls for a maxillary single anterior implant in a Class II division 2 malocclusion with bone regeneration and high smile line, multiple implants, overdentures, hybrids, or full-arch implant rehabilitation (FAIR). Attendees will also gain skills in CBCT imaging, restorative designs, biomechanics, restorative material selection, occlusion, and night guard fabrication for at least 10 unique clinical situations with 15 variables each.
