Restoring Edentulous Patients with Hybrid Solutions – Meeting 37

Restoring Edentulous Patients with Hybrid Solutions - Meeting 37


It’s Easier Than You Think!

The treatment of complete and single arch endentulism remains a significant priority for dental clinicians. Patients also have placed an emphasis on immediate load and often request complex full-arch treatments with shorter treatment times and fewer appointments. This program will begin with a review of the ITI consensus statement on clinical documentation of advanced/complex implant therapy with notations from peer reviewed publications and case examples of screw-retained hybrid therapies. This topic will be followed by a discussion of proper case selection, loading protocols, team approach and bone grafting procedures that play a role in complex therapies. In concert with these topics, new material will be presented that allows the clinician to gain an understanding of recent advances in dental implant componentry. These advances in componentry allow angle correction, gingival height correction, and immediate temporization options that can open new opportunities for clinicians to help meet the clinical, functional, and esthetic needs of their patients.


  1. Review relevant case selection, loading protocols, and bone grafting needs for complex full-arch cases
  2. Understand the ITI consensus Vol. IV statements on advanced and complex therapies in the mandible and maxilla
  3. Highlight the interdisciplinary approach to planning and treatment for implant patients, with emphasis on the team approach
  4. Discuss immediate implant placement and loading to improve functional outcomes and meet patient requirements.
