Lecture title: “Immediate Loading in the Single Compromised Tooth and Edentulous Patient.”
When it comes to deciding on which protocol should be selected to treat an immediately loaded case, the dentist is faced with several possibilities that are sometimes very different: e.g. choosing between traditional planning, surgery and prosthetic treatment or computer-guided surgery followed by the installation of a pre-manufactured restoration? Both alternatives have advantages and disadvantages, and each of them should be carefully analysed in order to make the right decision.
A chairside approach may be preferred by several surgeons, because they will have more direct control over each individual step of implant surgery; building the framework intra-orally has several advantages: it is time saving (no impression), it always produces an accurate fit and is passive, rigid splinting improves both the success rate and cost effectiveness .
A detailed examination of the different steps and features of this procedure will be presented in the lecture.
