Quality Standards in Full Arch Implant Rehabilitation

29-05-2020

Dr Alex Fibishenko will examine the definition of success beyond osseointegration, and the ABC’s of ensuring the we meet our patients expectations irrespective of how complex the anatomy or clinical presentation might be at a webinar organised by Straumann on Thursday, 4 June 2020 at 11am BST (6pm SGT).

Dr. Alex Fibishenko attained his primary dental qualifications from the University of Melbourne in 1995 with accolades in Oral Surgery and Prosthodontics. A respected implant surgeon, innovator and educator, Dr Fibishenko specialises in oral implantology and reconstructive dento-facial surgery in Melbourne.

This webinar will focus on the diagnostic, surgical and restorative parameters/techniques to treat the edentulous, as well as those with failing dentitions, to achieve predictable fixed implant-supported restorations.

The trend in full arch rehabilitation has been to use fewer implants and load them immediately. In pushing the boundaries of clinical therapy with the Pro-Arch concept, bone grafting and other adjunct surgical and restorative techniques using BLX Implants offer tremendous benefits in managing contingency and facilitating the most ideal implant placement for predictable aesthetics and optimal function, comfort, hygiene and longevity.

Pro-Arch offers improved delivery and predictability of full arch implant restorations. However the biological nature of osseointegration and patient individuality do not always suit a one-glove-fit all kind of an approach. Our treatment plan must suit the patient rather than have our patient suit a specific treatment. Before reaching for the scalpel we need to remember that we don’t just treat teeth or jaws. We treat people who are uniquely individual, with jobs, social lives, families and needs beyond our purely technical capabilities as surgeons. We need to understand that patients don’t want ‘implants’. What they want is the ability to smile and function with confidence, and uncomplicated possibilities in the event of failure. Our patients know that as dentists we are capable of ‘dental treatment’, but what they actually need is a ‘solution’ which does not merely replace one problem with a different problem.

Participants will Learn:

Ways to assess and manage restorative space

How to use anatomic landmarks to ideally position the implants

Optimising the stability of implants for immediate loading

His limited Clinical Residencies at his purpose-built facility in Melbourne have received high acclaim from all parts of the world and have welcomed some of the world’s leading implantologists, specialists and university professors.

“Just because the clinical situation is different does not mean that patient expectations are different, and it doesn’t change the definition of success or eliminate any of the parameters that are required to achieve it.” Dr Alex Fibishenko
