Algorithmic Approach to Reconstruct Major Implant and Dental Complications

Patients often present with dental failure of teeth and restorations, or failure of previously placed implants. The approach demonstrated in this presentation focuses on a standard set of diagnostic material, followed by the development of a treatment plan that will include removal of disease, grafting hard and soft tissue, development of the final restorative plan and placement of implants in locations prescribed by the final plan. This is done using digital information, virtual planning and navigation methods to optimize accuracy and precision. The first surgery is often aimed at eliminating disease and includes removal of teeth or implants with debridement and, as necessary, hard- and soft-tissue grafting. Often these patients require additional grafting to obtain satisfactory tissue volume and quality. Implants are placed navigated in a position prescribed by a virtual tooth setup. Multiple cases will be presented.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Explain what diagnostic materials need to be gathered for digital treatment planning and surgery. 
  2. Discuss the timing and sequencing of procedures to reconstruct these patients. 
  3. Demonstrate the time and cost effectiveness for using digital virtual planning for these unfortunate clinical situations.
