Incorporating Simple Predictable Implant Dentistry for the General Dentist is organized by Dr. Travel Seminars, LLC and will be held from Jul 27 - Aug 08, 2020 at Regal Princess, London, England, United Kingdom. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 16 CE Credits. Course Outline: (tentative) Restorative Dentists are finding themselves at the crossroads of Esthetic and Implant Dentistry. There is an explosion of concepts with very little scientific evidence. The Dilemma of whether to save teeth or to replace them with implants becomes a challenge due to predictability, reproducibility, and often to financial considerations. Rather than custom create treatment plans, we are forced into treatment driven options – “we have a solution, now let’s fit all problems into this” has led to radically adopting concepts such as “ All-on-four”, “Immediate Smile” “Teeth in a Day”. This course is designed to help the practitioner with evidence-based concepts of treatment plans that rely heavily on comprehensive diagnosis. A decision tree will be illustrated with objective analysis of esthetic and functional demands of the patient and the formulation of a rational plan would be facilitated. Fundamentals of restorative diagnosis with contemporary occlusal concepts will be reviewed. Case examples will elaborate the predictable nature of traditional crown and bridge restorations and when they perform better than implants. A logical sequence of utilizing natural teeth and implants to get ideal esthetic and functional outcomes will be taught. The following principles will be taught: • Diagnosis and Treatment planning of the Missing anterior tooth • Restoration of the Worn Dentition • Treatment of the terminal dentition • Failures in Rehabilitation * Discounted fee based upon purchase with vacation package. If purchased separately, please add $400 to the fee.
