Implant therapy is a recognized treatment for edentulous areas with long-term success. Nevertheless, in some critical situations, we must use different techniques of advanced oral surgery and bone regeneration to allow the implant placement avoiding damage to critical anatomical structures, like the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) or the maxillary sinus.

In severe cases of atrophic jaws, we must use specific techniques to solve the clinical cases, like short or tilted implants or even more advanced techniques like sinus lift and filling, extensive GBR, inferior alveolar nerve transposition, trespass or lateralization. Is also very important to know how to deal with and solve complications when treating challenging cases and to prevent failures by utilizing objective criteria for loading protocols.

The goal of the lecture is to explain the different treatment options with oral implants in demanding cases of atrophic jaws and to use some state-of-the-art techniques to help solving some challenging cases with predictable results.

Thursday, April 27th starting at 6:00 PM


Learning Objectives:

1-Knowing the Criteria for predictable loading protocols

2-Understanding the different options to avoid or graft the maxillary sinus for implant placement

3-To explain summarily the different techniques to mobilize the IAN.

4-To clear that all the advanced techniques for implant placement have specific indications and good results when performed correctly.
