Continuing Education Courses

Conventional vs. Digitally-guided Full Arch Rehabilitation

(1 CE Credit; Subject Code: 690; Course Prerequisites: N/A; Cost: Complimentary; Course Refund Policy: N/A)

Course Overview
Clinicians have been treating edentulous patients or patients with failing dentition with immediate full arch rehabilitation since Paulo Malo innovated the procedure in 1998. As the procedure has evolved, new methods to treatment plan guided surgery and guided restorations have become more prevalent among clinicians performing these cases. This course will outline the surgery, immediate temporization and definitive restoration for both conventional and guided immediate full arch rehabilitation. It will also be comparing and contrasting the advantages, disadvantages and limitations of both workflows.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
  • Compare the differences between analog and digital workflows for full arch rehabilitation
  • Understand the differences between treatment planning analog and digital workflows
  • Determine the advantages and disadvantages of both workflows for full arch rehabilitation
  • Determine the limitations of both conventional and digital workflows
  • Identify the patient records that are needed for both workflows
  • Summarize the steps for a conventional full arch rehabilitation surgery through the delivery of the immediate long term provisional
  • Detail the steps of a full arch guided prosthetics workflow on the day of surgery through delivery of a long term provisional


Best Practices for Record Taking for Digital Full Arch Rehabilitation

(1 CE Credit; Subject Code: 690; Course Prerequisites: N/A; Cost: Complimentary; Course Refund Policy: N/A)

Course Overview
Treatment planning full arch rehabilitation for patients with failing dentition or fully edentulous patients is a complex process. Guided surgery software and digital dentistry have made this process easier than before. While many of the same traditional concepts remain, these concepts must be digitized in order to achieve a predictable result for the patient. In this program, participants will learn about the four records required to treatment plan a full arch rehabilitation case and the best practices for taking them.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
  • Identify the four records that are needed to plan a digitally-guided, full arch case
  • Demonstrate the ability to take full arch impressions on a patient with failing dentition
  • Understand the variables to consider when re-establishing a patient’s VDO
  • Demonstrate the ability to take a patient’s bite registration
  • Compare the differences between analog and digital record taking
  • Identify the different patient photos necessary for treatment planning a digitally-guided, full arch case
  • Demonstrate the ability to take a CT scan for three different patient types: patients with terminal dentition, patients with terminal dentition and no teeth behind bicuspids, and patients who are fully edentulous


In-depth Overview of Guided Surgery and Prosthetics for Immediate Full Arch Rehabilitation

(1 CE Credit; Subject Code: 690; Course Prerequisites: N/A; Cost: Complimentary; Course Refund Policy: N/A)

Course Overview
As technology has evolved throughout the years for treating patients who are either edentulous or who have failing dentition, immediate full arch rehabilitation has become more predictable and less cumbersome than when Paulo Malo first developed the procedure in 1998. Guided implant surgery is now widely used by clinicians treating edentulous patients. Since then, innovative dental labs have been using software and technology to guide prosthetics and restorations for full arch patients. This course will detail the treatment planning process, the surgery, the immediate temporization and the definitive restoration of an immediate full arch rehabilitation case with both guided surgery and Guided Prosthetics.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
  • Measure the advantages of guided surgery and Guided Prosthetics for immediate full arch rehabilitation
  • Identify the four records that are required to treatment plan a digitally-guided, immediate full arch case
  • Recognize the parts and pieces used to guide the surgery, pick up the immediate long term provisional and restore the definitive prosthesis
  • Summarize the steps for bone reduction and guided placement of dental implants
  • Summarize the steps for immediate temporization of the long term provisional
  • Summarize the steps for restoration of the definitive prosthesis
  • Identify the materials needed for surgery, the immediate long term provisional and the definitive restoration


Restorative Protocol for the Definitive Prosthesis

(1 CE Credit; Subject Code: 690; Course Prerequisites: N/A; Cost: Complimentary; Course Refund Policy: N/A)

Course Overview
This presentation will demonstrate the clinical procedures necessary for fabricating the definitive prosthesis. It will review the steps for the first, second and third restorative appointments as well as discuss what records will need to be taken and provided to the laboratory.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
  • Provide the restorative clinician with definitive steps and protocols for each of the definitive restorative appointments
  • Minimize the challenges often associated with the fabrication of the All-On-X definitive prosthesis
  • Predictably schedule the appropriate amount of chair time, and the number and sequence of appointments


Guided Immediate Loading with Zygomatic Implants

(1 CE Credit; Subject Code: 690; Course Prerequisites: N/A; Cost: Complimentary; Course Refund Policy: N/A)

Course Overview
The objective of this presentation is to introduce the guided immediate loading technique for zygomatic implants, which will help course attendees obtain a general perspective of the advances and evolution of this technique. The surgical technique itself and the use of an immediate loading protocol was introduced to the dental profession in 1998. The introduction of immediate loading entails a dramatic shortening of treatment time for patients who seek a functional prosthesis and for clinicians who desire to achieve the same (or better results) than the original two-step procedure.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
  • Outline the advantages of implant treatment in zygomatic regions
  • Understand intrasinus and extrasinus guided delivery
  • Provide clinical record instruction for guided delivery
  • Provide visual instruction for the surgical guided delivery of zygomatic implants and the supportive prosthesis
