Current Status of Implant Surgery and Restoration: A Practical Course

Presented by: Pedro M. Trejo, DDS, MS

Friday, August 14, 2020

Synopsis: This one-day, REVIEW course, is recommended for both the novice and experienced clinicians who want to expand their knowledge in placing and/or restoring dental implants. This course will not only review the fundamentals, but will update the clinician on the current concepts and techniques used in implant treatment planning, surgery and restorative procedures.

Through this course, we will follow the treatment sequence and steps that are necessary to deliver an implant-supported restoration(s). The hands-on aspect will include the treatment of an extraction socket and the placement of an implant and of an immediate implant using a STL guide. 

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:


  1. 3-D imaging (CBCT) and intraoral scanners: where are we now?
  2. Osseous defects evaluation: which cases can I treat?
  3. Why and when guided implant placement should be treatment planned
  4. Treatment planning the adequate number and size of implants based on biomechanics and occlusion
  5. Peri-implant and periodontal tissues similarities - Peri-implantitis a common entity, so how are you preventing this reality?


  1. Review of basic implant healing events to apply shorter healing-time protocols in practice
  2. Implant site development in the daily practice (bone regeneration) prior to implant placement
  3. Immediate implant placement and its advantages.


  1. Screw -retained restorations: are there any advantages other than residual cement retention?
  2. Delivery of implant-supported restorations within 10 weeks, a protocol to take home
  3. Peri-implant soft tissue considerations.


  1. Treatment of an extraction socket
