Course Description:
Modified reconstruction procedures are applied when the facial skeleton has insufficient bone for conventional implant placement. Extensive bone grafting has been recommended to create adequate bone volume for placement of endosseous implants to restore the severely resorbed or resected maxilla with a fixed prosthesis. Newly grafted bone has to remain load-free to allow consolidation and revascularization for four months. Staged bone graft techniques increase treatment time, which is tedious and socially unacceptable for the patient. Maxillary atrophy makes quality of life for denture wearer’s unbearable, made worse by continuous bone resorption and maxillary sinus pneumatisation.

This course is designed to train an OMS in diagnosis and treatment planning for sub-crestal angular correction with angled platform implants. This course consists of both a didactic portion and a dedicated hands-on session in a small group setting, enabling the participant to add to their treatment options.

Course Objectives:

1. Recognize the imaging required to diagnose and treatment plan the edentulous maxillary patient using long, platform angled implants.
2. Examine the prosthetic options for these patients.
3. Apply the surgical methods by using the hands-on experience to simulate patient treatment.
