Trabecular Metal™, a porous (80%) tantalum biomaterial with trabecular-like structure for three-dimensional bone in-growth, has been used for more than a decade in orthopedic surgery. As a result of great success in orthopedics, a new tapered, threaded, titanium dental implant with a trabecular metal midsection has been developed. It has been tested in animal models followed by human cases for over five years. Clinical cases presenting the Trabecular Metal Dental Implant for enhanced secondary stability in poor bone quality and its indication in compromised sites in addition to medically compromised patients will be presented. 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants shoudl be able to: 
  1. Understand the structure of the trabecular metal material
  2. Discuss the opportunities provided for the healing protocols and the great potential for immediate loading
  3. Relate factors in achievement implant primary stability, secondary stability, and long term function
  4. Differentiate Trabecular Metal Material and tradition surface technologies and designs
  5. Describe indications for Trabecular Metal Implant in medically compromised patients as well as a rescue implant
