Fully Guided Full Arch Immediate Implant Reconstruction: 2019

With Dr. Michael A. Pikos

This clinically based presentation will focus on the integration of facially driven implant-supported prosthetics and surgical and laboratory disciplines, combined with CBCT technology to provide a seamless approach for fully guided full arch and full mouth immediate implant reconstruction for the terminal dentition and edentulous patient. This protocol includes placement of a virtually created, prefabricated, computer-guided monolithic bar supported prosthesis for both edentulous and dentate arches. The complete workflow from diagnostics to virtual workup with proof of concept for this fully guided approach will be presented along with cases that feature indications and overall procedural sequence.
Learning Objectives:
• Understand the indications and protocol for facially driven computer-guided full arch and full mouth immediate placement with a prefabricated monolithic acrylic bar supported provisional
• Compare the advantages of this protocol over conventional denture conversion protocols for full arch and full mouth implant reconstruction
• Understand the limitations of this totally guided surgical and prosthetic protocol for full arch immediate reconstruction cases
