Learn biologic basis and fundamental principles of Implant Prosthodontics. This course is designed for beginners that wish to learn about the PROSTHETIC phase of implant dentistry. The course will outline the diagnoses, planning, and designing implant-supported restorations. You will learn biomechanical principles of the prosthetic parts utilized for implant-supported restorations including surface treatments, connection types, and properties of each connection.
Participants will be able to diagnose, plan, and surgically place single as well as multiple edentulous areas with endosseous implants in their practices. Each participant will receive a comprehensive manual which compiles slides from the lecture. This makes following the lecture more enjoyable than having to take detailed notes and will also provide an excellent reference book when you return to your office after the course.

Hands-on exercises are divided into 3 sessions including treatment planning modalities, fabrication of provisional restorations for immediate and delayed placement, and steps to the final restoration.
• Treatment Planning Modalities will start with establishing diagnosis and treatment plans on actual cases provided by the New York Implant Institute. This exercise will utilize models, surgical templates, and panoramic radiographs
• Provisionalization: Includes an introduction to instrumentation and materials for fabricating provisional restoration for immediate and delayed placement. This will also include provisionals to shape tissue in the esthetic zone
• Stage II and soft tissue manipulation in pig jaws. Using healing abutments to shape tissue and keys to preventing the collapse of the desired contours. Taking implant level and abutment level impressions and establishing desired contours for final restorations
• Seating Final Restoration on models, pig jaws.
This exercise will include surveying the restorative site, re-establishing a good seating area, isolation, cementation/screw final restorations.
*Limited enrollment ensures one-on-one interaction between the instructor and participants to enhance the learning experience.
Each participant will learn the steps to develop a fully functional and esthetic implant-supported restoration in a unique interactive and simplified step-by-step fashion.
