Date: 15 June 2017
Time: 1900 Refreshments 1930 Lecture
Location: Porsche Centre Bournemouth, 282-284 New Road, Ferndown, BH22 8ER

The challenge of implant dentistry, from single tooth replacement through to full arch restoration, has always been the aesthetic and functional rehabilitation of the dentition together with reconstruction of the underlying bone architecture which is often compromised by post extraction resorption. This talk compares and contrasts the approaches to bone augmentation. I will review what has and has not worked in my clinical experience and explain the rationale behind my current preferred protocols. I will discuss simplified approaches for predictable implant treatment outcomes and also how recent technical advances can allow for a potentially quicker and more cost effective solutions for full arch fixed restorations in conjunction with CAD milled superstructures.

Learning Objectives:

Understanding of the different approaches to bone augmentation Awareness of simplified approaches and technical advances
