Guided bone and tissue regeneration techniques have revolutionized clinicians’ abilities to treat a wide array of clinically challenging
situations, ranging from mild to severe bone and soft tissue defects. One of the most effective ways to restore our patients’ lost oral form
and function is through implant rehabilitation. Significant advancements have been made since Dr. Per-Ingvar Brånemark’s discovery of
osseointegration. Yet, ironically, we have more unanswered questions and complications.

This lecture will introduce a comprehensive staging protocol (I, II and III) based on risk factors and predictability of each case. It will also discuss an innovative implant system focusing on the principles of osseointegration and the biology behind esthetics. The distinct advantages of the unique design principles and the clinical benefits of the system will be highlighted through case presentations.

Learning Objectives: At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:
1. Articulate complications with osseointegration
2. Describe staging protocols
3. State advantages of the design principles and clinical benefits of the system highlighted


Topics: Koo, MIS Implant Technologies, osseointegration
