Structual Planning for "All On Implant Supported" Prostheses


2 Core CE

Through this presentation, I would like to discuss a step by step schematic thinking and planning for "All On" Implant Supported Prostheses. I have been telling colleagues for years that these types of projects need to be treated like "Structural Engineering". With the advanced technology, we are able to determine the volume of bone, as well as quality of bone. My presentation will include a case that I treatment planned and fully documented, with chairside high-resolution videography, during the surgical phase. I was able to deliver the interim immediate load prosthesis. We were on track to complete the case and have it be completely restored with Zirconium hybrid prosthesis. Unfortunately, 2 out of 6 implants did not integrate. I will focus this presentation on problem-solving. When cases go well, everybody is happy. When problems occur, then a sound approach is needed to maintain a patient's confidence and proceed to the desired finish. This will be our focus.

Speaker Bio: James J. Mahooti, DDS graduated from Northwestern University in 1985, where he also taught as a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Fixed Prosthodontics for one year. He worked in and owned a Private Practice from 1986 until 2014. He also worked in a Personal Dental Service (DMO Clinic), during that time. After the sale of his practice in August 2014, he has been a traveling Implant Dentist working in multiple locations. He earned Advanced Surgical and Prosthetic Implant Training Degrees at the Misch Institute in 2006 and 2007. His passion in his profession is solving edentulous problems along with the restoration of both function and esthetics. Having attended The Dawson Academy of Higher Dental Education, he is quite comfortable with full mouth restorations both implant and/or tooth supported.
