Immediate & Delayed Approach
Dallas, TX - Full Day Hands On
Tomas Linkevičius serves as a Professor in Institute of Odontology, Vilnius in Lithuania and is creator of "Zero bone loss concepts" - a clear clinical pathway to develop and maintain crestal bon stability around dental degree in Kaunas Medical University in 2000. In 2004 he completed the post-graduate studies in prosthodontics in Vilnius University. In 2009 he finished his PhD doctoral dissertation and defended it in Riga Stradins University in Latvia.

Subcrestal implant placement and vertical soft tissue thickening
Both delayed and immediate treatment approaches have their place in implant dentistry. This one day course with world renowned creator of Zero Bone Loss Concepts, Prof. Tomas Linkevičius will cover:
DEVELOPMENT OF CRESTAL BONE STABILITY: SURGICAL PHASE
Influence of vertical soft tissues on crestal bone stability. Does platform switch save the bone? Influence of implant placement depth on crestal bone stability. What is the importance of implant-abutment connection stability? Bone remineralization and corticalisation processes in thick tissues.
IMMEDIATE IMPLANT PLACEMENT. HOW DO ZBLC FACTORS WORK IN IMMEDIATE?
Why we should do immediate? Why immediate is still considered risky? What is prosthetically-guided immediates? Why immediates are successful? Type A, B, C immediates and others.
MAINTENANCE OF CRESTAL BONE STABILITY: PROSTHETIC PHASE
How to control cement remnants after cementation. Supragingival margins and individual abutments. Use of rubber-dam for cement prevention. Relation between cement and peri-implant disease. Screw-retained restorations. Use of Ti-base for fabrication of restorations.
Subgingival prosthetic materials. Zirconia, titanium, ceramics - which is better. Use of ultra-polished zirconia for implant restorations. Composition of peri-implant soft tissues. Supragingival materials. Ceramics, e.max, monolithic Zr - where to use and why?
Subcrestal implant placement and vertical soft tissue thickening .
- Learn advantages and indications of immediate implants
- Learn how to develop and maintain crestal bone stability around delayed and immediate implants
- Understand the key factors for crestal bone stability in the surgical phase
