  3. 3. ______________________________________________________________________ INTRODUCTION Endosseous dental implants, by definition, are root-form devices inserted into edentulous sites in the Jaw to provide anchorage for either a fixed or a removable prosthesis. Most of the implant systems available today are clinically acceptable. Of course, there are always new products arriving on the market, so keep an eye on what’s offered and make sure appropriate clinical documentation is available. I will name a few implant companies that have proven to be reliable over the years: Astra, Friadent, Paragon, NobelBiocare, Straumann, Zimmer, 3i Biomet, Inc. come to my mind. There’s no such thing as a “best implant system,” only personal preferences of one over the other. The reality is that there are advantages and disadvantages to every system and what’s important in this business is “customer support.” There are four implant companies currently supporting our pre-doctoral implant program by providing the school with a reduced cost for specific products. These companies are NobelBiocare, Straumann ITI, 3i Biomet and Zimmer. Below you will find a chart of some of the implant companies, their systems, and the type of engaging mechanisms the different systems have to offer. I encourage you to access the web pages of implant companies and to become familiar with their products and terminology. A list of some web pages can also be found below. Most of the companies have online catalogs in case you don’t have a specific product catalog. The objective of this course is to simplify complex implant procedures for someone who is just beginning to explore this dental field. My objective is to familiarize you with techniques on how to approach the treatment of implants regardless of the system being used. We know that implants work; they are here to stay. I hope this course and the accompanying syllabus will help you to get started in this exciting field of dentistry. Enjoy!
  4. 4. ______________________________________________________________________ COURSE OBJECTIVES The objective of this course is to provide students with the opportunity to be exposed to implant tdentistry, so that the competency of managing the restoration of partial or complete edentulism using implant procedures can be achieved by those completing this course. The pre-clinical and didactic courses are designed to prepare students for the core of the new clinical implant dentistry curriculum at the School of Dentistry at the University of Washington. The clinical activity will be directed by the Department of Restorative Dentistry and will operate on a comprehensive care system. Currently there is no “requirement” for restoration of an implant patient. In the clinic (RD 630 and RD 640), students will routinely provide implant-based treatment on single units or short-span multiple unit restorations when considered appropriate. Surgery for these cases will primarily be performed by residents in the departments of Periodontics and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Patients with the potential of becoming implant candidates will be identified by the students in the clinic, from their own patient pool and will have to be approved for treatment by implant advisor. The students will perform implant treatment during their regular restorative or prosthodontic clinic sessions with specific implant faculty only (check with Shirley). TYPE OF IMPLANT TREATMENT TO BE PERFORMED: Single tooth implant, two adjacent implant restorations and short span (not exceeding 4 units) FPDs. Mandibular overdenture on two implants with individual attachments PRE-CLINICAL AND DIDACTIC REQUIREMENTS The Pre-doctoral student must successfully complete the pre-clinical laboratory and didactic courses in order to establish eligibility for restoring a single crown implant in the clinic. The student must also have satisfactorily reached the operative and restorative goals up to that point in time. Recommended Course Literature Osseointegration in Dentistry: An Overview, Second Edition Worthington P, Lang BR, Rubenstein JE. Quintessence ISBN 0-86715-425-x Price : $ 38.00
