Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

•Describe the development of dental implants and currently available options for implants and abutments

•Review the rationale for using CBCT during implant treatment planning and compare this with two-dimensional imaging

•Describe the hazards associated with lack of isolation and the use of an isolation device during dental implant treatment

•List and describe considerations when determining whether immediate or delayed implant placement will be selected for an implant patient

•Describe the steps involved for a delayed placement, immediate loading implant case


This webinar addresses the history and fundamentals of dental implants. The basic types of Implants, surgical protocols, abutments, and treatment options will be discussed, together with indications and considerations for these. The role of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) vs. two-dimensional radiography during treatment planning is addressed. In addition, the hazards of lack of adequate isolation during dental procedures is shown and an isolation device that can be used during dental implant procedures. Using clinical cases, examples will be shown of successful implant therapy including single implant immediate and delayed placement, immediate placement and provisionalization for a full-arch fixed prosthesis, and placement of small diameter implants for an overdenture patient.
