TREATMENT ALTERNATIVES FOR THE ATROPHIC MAXILLA 
Joan Pi Urgell (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > Understand the different treatment alternatives to rehabilitate the atrophic maxilla with fixed prosthesis.
  • > Be aware of long term results for each alternative.
  • > Identify advantages, disadvantages and possible complications for each technique.

Abstract

The edentulous maxilla undergoes progressive bone resorption to the extent where a minimum of basal bone is present. The atrophic maxilla presents significant challenges for prosthetic rehabilitation and the patient suffers from functional problems, aesthetic issues and, of great importance, psychological problems. During this presentation, the author will describe different techniques for the rehabilitation of the atrophic maxilla with a fixed prosthesis. The long term results and possible complications with each technique will also be described, to provide a predictable solution that improves the patient’s quality of life.

INFLUENCE OF CLINICIAN ATTITUDE ON IMPLANT FAILURE RATES
Franck Renouard (France)

Learning Objectives

  • > Recognize that short implants are a reliable option
  • > Discuss how the morbidity of each therapeutic option must be assessed before making a clinical decision
  • > Explain how the simplest procedure should always be the first choice

Abstract

Very severe jaw resorption represents a challenge for the surgeon. Advanced surgical therapies were developed in   order to place the longest implants possible. However, few practitioners are able to predictably perform bone grafting procedures or bone regenerations in their daily practice. Moreover, more and more patients take medications which contraindicate advanced surgical procedures. The goal of the lecture is to demonstrate that short implants can be used in routine practice with a high success rate with, perhaps, a better biomechanical prognosis.

OPTIMAL IMPLANT POSITIONING WITH DIGITAL ANALYSIS
Patrick Palacci (France)

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
  • > Discuss aesthetic zone anterior implant treatment planning
  • > Illustrate when hard and soft tissue surgical intervention is indicated and the appropriate technique
  • > Discuss prosthetic soft-tissue equivalents

Abstract

Implant dentistry in the maxillary anterior aesthetic zone is considerably more challenging than other regions. Further, when complications and/or hard/soft tissue deficiencies are encountered, management of the soft-tissue profiles becomes exponentially more difficult. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the clinical realities of dental implant treatment in the aesthetic zone, soft tissue management and when to use prosthetic equivalents.
