14th Annual Jesse T. Bullard Lectureship- Saturday April 14, 2018

"The Full Arch Implant Restoration- Then and Now"

Course Summary:

The history of an implant approach for restoring function in the edentulous or failing dentition patient is both fascinating and revealing. If anything is to be learned from the early days of implantology, it is how important the current concept of Osseointegration is as a health service in the process of minimizing the progress of bone loss over the lifetime of implant service. The turnaround for our profession started with the Toronto conference, and continues to evolve as advances in technology and science create expanded opportunities for application to a patient population which is in even greater need today. Along with this growth comes growing pains, not all of which are expected, and some of which may require extensive rescue.

This presentation will retrospectively trace the benefits of current full arch implant restorative possibilities through osseointegration. Using a complications based approach over a period of more than 30 years of personal clinical implant experience, recommendations will be offered attain longevity while treatment planning to avoid complications.
