Welcome to the official page of the 2019 Pikos Symposium Full Arch Immediate Implant Reconstruction: State of the Art. The symposium will be held at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida from October 10 – 12, 2019 with optional hands-on workshops held on October 9, 2019. The symposium provides a clinically relevant and evidence-based state of the art surgical and prosthetic strategies for full arch immediate implant reconstruction.
The 2019 Pikos Symposium is the leading event for clinicians worldwide offering an opportunity to advance their knowledge in full arch immediate implant reconstruction. Fifteen of the world’s master clinicians will be presenting their surgical and restorative protocols. Each speaker offers a wealth of knowledge for you, as a clinician, with a minimum of 10 – 30+ years of experience individually.
As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to earn 24 credit hours for the symposium and an additional 4 credit hours for each hands-on workshop. The symposium will cover the entire spectrum of both the scientific and clinical elements of this most relevant area of implant rehabilitation from freehand analog-based protocols to partially and fully guided immediate full arch reconstruction protocols.
Orlando is located in Central Florida and is home to more than a dozen theme parks, including Disney World, SeaWorld, Universal Studios and more. The area is full of numerous restaurants, shopping opportunities, and family-themed attractions. The Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes offers luxury amenities from an oasis-like spa, fine dining, and a championship-level golf course designed by Greg Norman. Guests will benefit from impeccable service, luxury hotel rooms, and suites, exceptional family-friendly amenities, including a lazy river pool, 24-hour fitness center, and the Ritz Kids program.
Topics to be discussed at the 2019 Pikos Symposium will include but are not limited to:
- Indications and contraindications for full arch immediate reconstruction of edentulous and soon to be edentulous arches
