Dental Implants had become an optimal solution for replacing missing teeth both in single as well as complete edentulous patients. Bone resorption sometimes makes implant placement a difficult task both in anterior as well as posterior regions demanding advanced surgical regenerative procedures. In some situations it requires long term treatment with an unpredictable prognosis. Implant treatment planning has developed immensely over the last decade. Implants are no longer placed where the bone is but where the ideal prosthetics should be. Using CBCT with three dimensional planning software enables the clinician to accurately plan the surgical treatment taking into consideration the anatomical obstacles, this enables the operator to design surgical guides according to the digital data. This treatment protocol reduces chair operating time, minimizing patient’s discomfort and operator’s anxiety. The webinar will focus on the concept of using new innovative treatment approaches as well as unconventional surgical manipulations, application of blood derived growth factors concentrate allowing the clinician to reach the ultimate goal- bringing the patient the function and esthetics with his teeth in a shorter time period. The presentation will feature “outside the box” thinking and executing , using “osseodensification” for bone expansion and preservation.


  • Understand the treatment options of the deficient ridge.
  • Understand the treatment plan options and evaluating new materials and protocols
  • Understand the advantage using osseodensification in modern implantology.
