Implant Provisionals – From Concept to Design

As more practitioners are placing implants, there is more to restore! It is very common for teeth to be removed with no plan for interim or provisional restorations. There is a challenge to transition from edentulous or partial edentulous area to finished restoration. Using implant provisionals helps to “map out” tooth shape and form. This is important in any implant treatment, from a single tooth restoration to full mouth rehabilitation.

 

This is a crucial step often skipped. Implant provisionals help to identify potential problems and reduce the amount of alterations and even re-makes of your final restoration.

 

Learning objectives:

  1. Utilization of provisionals to plan implant restorative treatment.

 

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify a treatment where implant provisionals are necessary.
  2. Trouble-shoot issues in the provisional stage.
  3. Be integral in designing final implant restoration design.
  4. Correct and minimize problems or issues that arise with definitive implant restorations.
