Adapting treatment to Covid-19 and dental implant

With the pandemic, our lives and attitudes changed dramatically. We had to adapt implant treatments to this new situation. Simplification, reliability, less surgical/prothetic appointments, more efficient treatment lead us to consider immediate loading as an alternative to conventional implant treatment. What protocol should be applied in order to fulfill those prerequisites. Resonance frequency analysis is one of the tools we have in our hands in order to optimize this kind of treatments.


Learning objectives :

  • Indication, contra indication for immediate loading
  • Apply an evidence based protocol to optimize this treatment
  • Apply specific surgical principals in order to get optimal functional and esthetic results.
