CE Credits Hours: Total 7 Hours (7 hrs Lecture)
Course Description: (one-day Lecture)
The maxillary and mandibular edentulous region presents a challenging condition for dental implant placement. Alveolar bone resorption and increased pneumatization of the sinus cavity reduce the amount of alveolar bone necessary to maintain a predictable implant-supported prosthesis. This problem can be overcome by GBR procedures maintaining the horizontal ridge dimensions or grafting the maxillary sinus floor which provides a sufficient quantity of bone for the placement of endosseal dental implants to support a prosthetic reconstruction.
This lecture will discuss:
- The advantages and utilization of Osseodensification for both Ridge Expansion and Sinus Augmentation enabling the clinician to do a minimally invasive approach
- “Outside the box” approach for atrophic ridge management cases with use of autologous growth factors as well as Osseodensification with up to 5 years follow up
