Assessing Strategic Value of Pre-existing Implants or Implant Supported Restorations


Assessing Strategic Value of Pre-existing Implants or Implant Supported Restorations when patients need comprehensive care… When to utilize, modify their prosthetic design or remove them?

About the Event

It is not uncommon to see patients present with preexisting implant supported restorations, whether these are single tooth implants, multiple implants, or even full arch solutions.
Furthermore, it is not uncommon to see that these patients could require further comprehensive dental work either in areas adjacent to these implants supported restorations or may require an upgrade to the previous restoration. This means that we could utilize these implants or their components as part of our treatment sequence or as part of the upgraded solution, hence adding great value to our treatment plan.
This presentation is designed to provide a step-by-step assessment of preexisting implants in order to determine if they are viable biologically, structurally and esthetically in order to incorporate them into our new interdisciplinary treatment planning design.
