The Limits of Conventional Treatments - Implant Solutions

Dental implant rehabilitation is not always the treatment of choice for all patients who have missing teeth, conventional fixed or removable prosthodontic treatment may be more appropriate. However, this presentation will focus on clinical scenarios where an implant based treatment has provided the patient with a better quality of life outcome than a conventional approach would allow.

2D, or not 2D - That is the Question for Implant Planning

This talk is an opportunity to review the role, the benefits and pitfalls of plain film imaging in evaluating a potential implant or donor site. This talk will highlight when commonly used plain radiographs may be relied on to give accurate information, and when not, and identify situations where cross-sectional imaging such as CBCT may be necessary. It will discuss some artefacts and pathology which can mislead, and pick out radiological features which may be relevant when preparing to place an implant.

Dr Susan Tanner - It's All About Space
Specialist in Prosthodontics, Dental Implant Reconstruction, MRD RCS(Eng) MSc BDS(Lon)

Dr Susan Tanner

It's All About Space

One of the most important features for a perfect dental implant restoration is the space available to provide the correct form, a pleasing appearance and enough material bulk for a strong, reliable and aesthetic crown or bridge. There are many aspects to ensuring this outcome, such as the prosthodontic planning at the outset of treatment, the surgical planning and the choice of fixing to the implant body. The objective of this talk will be to help the clinician design a protocol for a prosthodontic workflow, and encourage a team approach to restoration of a dental implant with the surgeon and dental technician.

Surgical Fundamentals Prior to Implant Placement

How to start with a good foundation? Healthy bone is a prerequisite for osseointegration. This term was coined by Professor Brånemark and depends on a number of influences some of which are related to local and systemic patient factors, such as radiotherapy and antiresorptive agents. This lecture will also focus on tissue handling, minimal trauma and controlled surgical exodontia techniques prior to implant placement. A further objective is to provide guidance for implant patients on anticoagulants.

Dr Fiona MacKillop

Placing an Implant

Dr MacKillop will discuss the fundamental considerations when placing an Implant. This will include the information required in the preplanning stages of implant treatment, with focus on determining the bone availability for implant placement. There are a number of different radiographs available to a clinician, and Dr MacKillop aims to show the most appropriate for dental implants, and why and what essential information they can give to the dental surgeon. Guidance as to the surgical steps of implant placement will be provided, with the aim of providing basic knowledge for implant success.

Dr Linda Greenwall

Think Colour Before Restoration

Treatment planning is thus essential when planning implant treatment next to the natural dentition. Whilst the shade selection can depend on many factors that come into play such as lighting in the surgery, background lighting and daylight. There are many variations in what the dentist may see when trying to choose the correct shade. A combination approach of using digital photos, shade taking devices and direct vision will be discussed and how to select the perfect shade every time. This lecture will discuss treatment planning of a single anterior crown and or implant crown, when to plan whitening treatment, how to assess the shade and other tips for getting it right!

Women in the Lead

We hear a great deal about the difference between women and men, but how different are we in reality? This presentation touches on what the science actually tells us and explores the dangers of stereotyping. How might women limit themselves - and be limited by others? And what strategies can they employ to demonstrate greater resilience and confidence - and ultimately be more likely to rise to the opportunities that present themselves
