Pikos Symposium 2017
Immediately Loaded, Implant Supported, Full-Arch Fixed Rehabilitation of the Edentulous and Imminently Edentulous Patient
This presentation will briefly review the biology of osseointegration focusing on certain aspects of wound healing which can be exploited to support immediate loading of implants. Examples for different styles of treatment will be presented illustrating different strategies of full-arch loading. Indications and contraindications for various approaches will be discussed as well as examples of guided versus nonguided surgery and provisionalization.
• Become familiar with key wound healing steps that must be respected in order to accomplish successful osseointegration with immediate loading
• Recognize different treatment strategies for full-arch immediate loading cases
• Consider different restorative options to simplify and improve provisionalization
