2018 ADI Masterclass: The transition from teeth to implant-supported teeth
With thousands placed and restored every year dental implants have become the treatment of choice for partial and complete edentulism. There are many different products, systems, techniques and concepts used throughout the profession, with each designed to meet the demands of different patients and different clinical situations. Choosing which approach to take can be a challenge for implant dentists and their teams, so continued education and training in the field remains crucial.
The Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) is said to be the go-to organisation for everything associated with dental implants. With more than 2,400 members, including dentists, dental technicians, dental hygienists, therapists and dental nurses and students, it provides a well-established and extensive network for all to turn to for information and advice.
The ADI says it is “Committed to supporting professional education” and, as such, it offers a “Range of events designed to enhance and broaden delegates’ knowledge and skills”.
2018 ADI Masterclass
The organisers say: “Presented by Professor Paulo Malo (top) and Dr Marco Degidi, the ADI Masterclass entitled “The Transition from Teeth to Implant Supported Teeth”, will be held on 10 March 2018 at IET London, Savoy Place. Utilising the expertise of two world-renowned masters with decades of experience in dental implantology, the event will provide an ideal opportunity to learn, get inspired and engage in stimulating debate.
“Professor Malo will impart his wisdom on The Malo Clinic Protocol, providing a retrospective view of the last 25 years. He will discuss how the All-On-4® surgical protocol allows for immediate function, full-arch, implant-supported prosthetics, as well as how to achieve outstanding aesthetic, precise and consistent prosthetic results. Delegates will leave the morning’s session with an enhanced understanding of the treatment options available to patients with failed dentition and a wealth of information on the principles, advantages and biomechanics of the All-On-4 concept.”
They continue: “In the afternoon, Professor Malo will consider even more challenging cases, where standard protocols alone cannot deliver the very best results and so zygoma implants are indicated. He will discuss the evolution of this complex treatment modality and highlight the key indications and contraindications for treatment.
“Providing an alternative but equally valuable insight, Dr Degidi (above) will focus on immediate implantation and immediate loading, and how patient demand has driven advancement of the technique. As well as discussing when the concept is suitable, Dr Degidi will also consider how the design of dental implants and abutments can impact on treatment outcomes and how important primary stability is.
“For his afternoon session, Dr Degidi will provide some useful guidelines for constructing electrically welded prostheses, as well as the main indications for using the WeldOne and Conometric Concept – an intraoral welding technique. The latter can be used for single teeth, partials or full arches and provides another treatment option for the modern implant dentist’s armamentarium.”
In addition to hearing from two of the most highly regarded speakers in the field, professionals attending this ADI Masterclass will have access to a trade exhibition where they can find out about the latest products and materials.
Make sure you don’t miss this opportunity to hear from two of the world’s most celebrated dental implantologists. Discounts are available for ADI members, but all dental professionals are very welcome to attend.
