Academy of Osseointegration Meeting – Pre-Meeting Workshop

Robert A. del Castillo, DMD and Gary Morris, DDS

The full-arch, implant-supported fixed prosthesis procedure is often complex, time consuming and can be unaffordable for the average patient. Advances in technology and innovation are making this treatment option more common, simplified and a time saving solution. This workshop will teach an advanced treatment solution that incorporates unique implant designs that allow for complex anatomical conditions to be properly managed, and will help maximize the available bone, overcome anatomical structures and extend the A-P spread. Attendees will also discover a novel attachment system that requires no screws and no cement, to simplify the restorative technique and minimize chair time for the restorative team.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:
• Utilize site-specific implants for subcrestal angle correction
• Determine the quantity and positioning of implants for the best outcome
• Identify the indications and limitations of a fixed attachment system
• Describe the protocol and procedure for immediate load cases
• Execute the surgical techniques necessary to place multiple, site specific implants in a full-arch setting
• Process a full-arch, fixed prosthesis without cement or screws through a hands-on exercise
