CE SEMINAR: Diagnosis and Treatment Planning

This lecture is being presented in honour of the memory of Dr. William “Bill” Sehl

TOPIC
Diagnosis and Treatment Planning; The Crystal Ball of Prosthodontics

Course Overview

Without a doubt, the most important aspect of a restorative or prosthodontic treatment regimen is the planning stage. While many practitioners generally attempt to do this, in the best way possible, the fast and frenetic pace of a general practice often precludes the restorative dentist  from finding the inordinate amount of time needed to plan the complex cases thoroughly. This course will discuss many of the variables that can and should be decided well in advance of actually placing the implant or preparing the teeth.

There are seven guidelines to implant placement that form the core of prosthodontic implant treatment planning. These guidelines will help decide when endodontically treated teeth should be retained, retreated or removed. Most often, one can determine in advance when a tooth should have an endodontic procedure or should be removed, and an implant placed. The final occlusal scheme of your implant case can be determined 90% of the time in advance. A decision as to what restorative material should be used (Zirconia? Porcelain Fused to Metal?) can also be determined most often, in the treatment planning stage. Consulting with your implant surgeon, in the treatment planning stage, will lay the foundation of almost exactly what you can expect to get once the implant is ready to restore.  No surprises.

Educational Objectives

You will learn in this fast paced six hour power point presentation:

  • The seven guidelines of prosthodontic implant treatment.
  • Decision making; endodontics or extract and place an implant? What does the literature say?
  • Occlusion in implant dentistry; does it matter? A literature review will focus on what we know and what we don’t know.
  • What information do you need to get from your implant surgeon, and what does she/he need from you?
  • The challenging anterior cosmetic implant case and the red flags that you should make note of right at the initial exam.
  • Implant failures; ‘The long and winding road’!
