The advent of dental implants to replace hopeless or missing teeth has been a financial boon for dental offices. Most specialty offices and over 55% of general dental offices are placing and restoring dental implants. Unfortunately, proportional to the increase in dental implants being placed will be the percentage of implant complications that need to be corrected. This entire day course will be taught in combination by a periodontist, restorative dentist, certified lab technician, and dental office manager. A review of the etiology and diagnosis of implant complications will be presented. ADA dental codes will be discussed as well as letters of explanation representing various complication treatments.  Hands on models will be used to teach attendees how to correct various surgical and prosthetic implant complications such as prosthetic misfit, poor embrasure form leading to food traps, prosthetic screw fracture, implant facture, and peri-implantitis induced soft and hard tissue loss.  Dentists who understand surgical and prosthetic complications can better serve their patients and communicate with their restorative team members.

  • Discuss and practice various methods of correcting prosthetic complications

  • Become familiar with the ADA codes needed to submit for various complications
