Mastering Immediate Implants - A Deep Dive

Welcome to the first Academia Implantology event in Manila, Philippines!

This scientific meeting on dental implantology involves an interactive lecture that allows the audience to get involved with the treatment plan of various interesting cases, primarily focusing on immediate implant placement in the aesthetic zone. 


1. Immediate Implant Placement and Loading as Fundamental Concepts of a Successful Implant Practice. Quality and           Speed Harmonically Blended.

Duration: 90 min
This clinically oriented lecture will focus on describing the various surgical and prosthetic protocols behind every ‘’immediate’’ implant case. The concepts of immediate implant placement and loading, when applied with respect to the biological, biomechanical and aesthetic conditions of each case, increase the satisfaction of patients and at the same time offer new possibilities in developing a successful practice. The lecture will finally address all the important treatment planning and clinical considerations behind the most common clinical scenarios.

- Extractions and immediate implant placements
- Analysis of the aesthetic socket and soft tissue biotype
- Factors that influence primary stability in immediate implant placements
- Clinical guidelines for immediate implant placements in the aesthetic zone
- Different clinical scenarios and their planning in the Dental Scan
- The keys of success in Immediate Loading 
- Implant prosthetics in the Aesthetic Zone

2. Aesthetics based on the use of Biology – Overcoming the Conventional Limits

Duration: 90 min
On an everyday basis, Implantologists that continuously strive for aesthetic excellence, have to deal with the multiple limitations of the hard and soft tissue preservative and regenerative techniques. It seems that achieving a perfect aesthetic result, especially in cases of multiple missing teeth, is at least not predictable. The lecture will initially guide the audience through the most important parts of the literature toward the understanding of the biological principles that govern the outcomes of a post-extraction aesthetic case. The Socket – Shield technique will then be introduced as an alternative that could be a solution to the compromise that clinicians have been forced to accept, when treating cases that require perfection. Using Biology can be our ultimate and only answer.

- Literature review on the healing of the post-extraction socket and the current socket preservation techniques – understanding the causes of the aesthetic problems and the biological principles that the Implantologist has to respect.
- Critical review and comprehensive explanation of the Socket – Shield technique (literature – clinical cases – videos – diagrams). Understanding the rationale behind this surgical approach and why it is considered currently as the most advanced method used in the Aesthetic Zone.
- Limitations and complications of the Socket – Shield technique. Should the Implantologist be careful and why?

3. Demystifying Dental Implants – Part 1

Duration: 90 min
Choosing the ‘’ideal’’ implant system is not an easy decision for the clinician. We have to base this decision on the conscious understanding of the core biological principles of Implant Dentistry on the one hand, as well as on the micro - / macro – mechanical characteristics of implants on the other hand. A Dental Implant has to do multiple things at the same time. It needs to become osseointegrated, create a friendly relationship with the soft tissues, support an aesthetic implant crown and cover the aesthetic and functional needs of the patient. All of the above have to be accomplished preferably in a simple, fast way and maintained on a long term basis. This lecture creates a fruitful discussion that brings to the surface all of the questions that every modern Implantologist faces, when he/she has to decide which Implant System can cover these requirements in the best possible way.

- Implant surfaces and osseointegration
- Understanding the biologic width formation and its consequences
- Implant design and primary stability
- The implant neck. Implant-abutment connections and the truth behind platform switching.
- Critical analysis of the ‘’one abutment – one time’’ concept

4. Demystifying Dental Implants – Part 2

Duration: 90 min
