The failing dentition and atrophic mandible and maxilla pose a significant surgical challenge when clinicians are planning implant-supported prosthetic rehabilitation. For the last 30 years, surgeons have been compensating for the lack of bone height and width with block bone grafting techniques and sinus lift treatments. With the many changes in dental implant surgery and prosthetic advances, angled implants have revolutionized implant-supported total rehabilitation. Higher comfort for the patient with higher aesthetic results that save time and money are only a few of the advantages brought by these treatments into modern dentistry. There now are a multitude of alternatives. By anchoring in the mandibular alveolus and maxillary piriform, buttress and alternatively the zygomatic bone, the various long and angled dental implant systems now can provide an immediate loading protocol. This dramatically shortens time-to-teeth for increased patient satisfaction and allows patients suffering from severe maxillary bone loss to return to a normal quality of life. This workshop is designed for dental professionals and experienced clinicians who want to gain understanding and clinical experience in full-arch implant rehabilitation with conventional and zygomatic implants as a graftless solution in less time than anticipated. By attending this workshop, attendees will learn how to deliver an immediate implant-retained, full-arch aesthetic hybrid restoration after the surgery and how to manage the final prosthesis for excellent long-term results. A one-hour break for lunch will be provided during this course. Attendance is limited to 25.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • understand basic principles of angled and zygomatic implants.
  • recognize treatment planning and surgical protocol.
