Complications in Dental Implantology: A Three Part Series

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Complications in Dental Implantology
Part I: Prevention and Treatment of Prosthetic Complications

January 19, 2018

Overview:
As clinicians we appreciate the modality of dental implants and the positive effects these rehabilitations have for our patients. However complications are also on the rise as the specialty of implant dentistry has both a prosthetic and surgical component. This complexity often makes it difficult for identifying the etiology of the complication and a treatment solution. Treatment of complications and ultimately avoidance will serve the modality of implant dentistry and benefit our patients. This course is the first of three in a series, focusing on prevention and treatment of restorative and delayed biological complications.

Objectives:

  1. Learn key differences in mechanical and biological differences in a dental implant and natural tooth.
  2. Consider important dental implant positions in single and full-arch rehabilitation scenarios.
  3. Identify common errors in full-arch tooth position, intra-arch position and functional complications.
  4. Discuss digital workflow and and its influence on restorative-driven implantology.
  5. Understand causes and avoidance of anterior esthetic implant failures.
  6. Learn about full-arch fixed prosthetics and keys to complication avoidance.
  7. Discuss common complications with full-arch removable implant prosthetics and avoidance. 
  8. Learn the role of computerized occlusal analysis in complication avoidance.
  9. Discuss ideal implant-protected occlusal schemes in fixed and removable restorations.
  10. Learn the etiology and treatment options of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis
  11. Learn criteria for a healthy implant abutment, finish line, emergence and customization.
  12. Discuss abutment, screw retained and cement-related complications and their treatment.
  13. Consider patient specific parameters, prosthetic materials, characteristics and applications.

Complications in Dental Implantology
Part II: Pharmacological and Oral Medicine Considerations in Implant Dentistry

March 16, 2018

Overview:
With today’s aging population and increased need for implant teeth replacement dentists may encounter adverse outcomes to surgery and implant treatment. Medications can effect the safety of surgical procedures and healing outcomes. Systemic health concerns and pharmacologic co-morbidites should alter a clinicians approach in order to optimize healing, avoid failed treatment and minimize emergency scenarios. Treatment of medically-complex patients and proper treatment algorithms will be discussed. This course is second in a three lecture series on implant dentistry complications and is highly recommended for clinicians who plan to take the surgical complications course. 

Objectives:

  1. Discuss the most commonly prescribed medications and their influence on dental implant surgery and osseointegration.
  2. Learn systemic diseases that influence bone metabolism, osseointegration and implant treatment success.
  3. Discuss antihypertensive and anticoagulation treatment and appropriate surgical treatment modifications.
  4. Understand oral and intravenous bisphosphonate therapy and its impact on dental implant treatment protocols.
  5. Discuss protocols for diabetics, smokers and patients with autoimmune disorders. 
  6. Discuss post-operative pain medications, NSAIDS effect on bone metabolism and necessary modifications.
  7. Discuss prophylactic antibiotics and their indication for use in implant surgery.
  8. Discuss L-PRF, L-PRP and its beneficial effect on implant dentistry and medically-complex patients.

Part III: Prevention and Treatment of Surgical Complications

May 18th, 2018

Overview:
As clinicians we appreciate the modality of dental implants and the positive effects these rehabilitations have on our patients. However complications are also on the rise as the specialty of implant dentistry has both a prosthetic and surgical component. This complexity often makes it difficult for identifying the etiology of the complication and a treatment solution. Treatment of complications and ultimately avoidance will serve the modality of implant dentistry and benefit our patients. This course is the final in a series of three focusing on intra-operative surgical and post surgical complications and their corresponding treatment and avoidance.

Objectives: 

  1. Common surgical complications related to implant placement position, removal and modification. 
  2. Discuss common concerns and complications with surgical stents for implant placement.
  3. Discuss vascular anatomy,  intra-operative hemorrhage, appropriate avoidance and emergency treatment.
  4. Learn nerve injury etiology, classification and treatment.
  5. Discuss post surgical incision line opening, one stage implant surgery and soft tissue concerns.  
  6. Discuss post surgical implant failure causes, avoidance and treatment options.
  7. Discuss peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis identification and treatment options.  
  8. Learn to prevent and treat oral-antral communications / displaced implants.
  9. Discuss sinus pathology and post surgical rhinosinusitis infection and treatment.
