Restoration Protocols for single, multiple and full arch cases

This course is for Dentists that restore implants and surgically place implants.

Course Objective

Learn biologic basis and fundamental principles of Implant Prosthodontics. The course will outline the diagnoses, planning, and designing implant-supported restorations. You will learn biomechanical principles of the prosthetic parts utilized for implant-supported restorations including surface treatments, connection types, and properties of each connection.

You will be able to diagnose, plan, and surgically place and restore single as well as multiple edentulous areas with endosseous implants.

Hands-On Exercises (performed on models, surgical templates, panoramic radiographs and pig jaws)


Hands-on exercises are divided into 3 sessions including treatment planning modalities, fabrication of provisional restorations for immediate and delayed placement, and steps to the final restoration.
• Treatment Planning Modalities will start with establishing diagnosis and treatment plans on actual cases provided by Dr. Panjali. This exercise will utilize models, surgical templates, and panoramic radiographs
• Provisionalization: Includes an introduction to instrumentation and materials for fabricating provisional restoration for immediate and delayed placement. This will also include provisionals to shape tissue in the esthetic zone
• Stage II and soft tissue manipulation in pig jaws. Using healing abutments to shape tissue and keys to preventing the collapse of the desired contours. Taking implant level and abutment level impressions and establishing desired contours for final restorations
• Seating Final Restoration on models, pig jaws.

This exercise will include surveying the restorative site, re-establishing a good seating area, isolation, and inserting both cemented or screw final restorations.
