2012 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC
IMPLANT DENTISTRY: DEBATING THE OPTIONS FOR PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS
Practical Education for the Practicing Implant Dentist
Welcome to the official webpage of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry’s 61st Annual Meeting.
Every day we are faced with various options to provide the best treatment for our patients. As the practice of implant dentistry continues to evolve; various tools, technologies, and treatment approaches are available to the clinical dentist which often present challenging decisions.
This meeting is designed to bring together the world’s experts in implant dentistry to debate several options of treating a similar situation allowing you to develop practical solutions. Examples of some of the options that were debated included:
Should comprehensive reconstruction be the goal or can we settle for con formative Implant restorations?
Should length matter? Can short implants be a solution to circumvent grafting or does length ensure longevity?
Is autogenous bone the gold standard? Can allogenic particulate grafts get the same results as autogenous block grafts?
Connective tissue grafts: How much should we stretch to achieve perfection? Or should we resort to prosthetic solutions for soft tissue limitations?
