Webinar: Loading Protocols for Daily Implantology

Jun 12, 2020

With Dr. Raquel Zita Gomes

Dr. Raquel Zita Gomes DMD, PG, MSc, PhD, Oral Surgeon, University Prof.

This webinar will present and discuss the loading protocols (delayed, early, immediate) in modern Oral Implantology, and create guidelines for daily decisions.

Thanks to the latest developments of medical technologies and simultaneous advancement of medical sciences, medicine became more efficient, faster, and most importantly safer. Implantology has not stayed aside from the technological revolution of the 21st century. The main aim of this dental webinar is to present and discuss the loading protocols (delayed, early, immediate) in modern Oral Implantology, and to create guidelines for daily decisions having in consideration objective measures like the Osstell Implant Stability Quotient (ISQ) Measure, the Torque and the bone density measured in the CT/CBCT. Other factors like the medical status of the patient and the complexity of the case are also important to take in consideration. Several clinical cases are going to show how to put in practice these rules.

Learning outcomes:

  • To learn the different guidelines for two stages, one stage and immediate loading approaches.
  • To understand how guidelines for loading protocols can help us to obtain better clinical results, namely in advanced surgical techniques.
  • To know the principles behind the decision criteria (ISQ, Torque, Bone density, medical status, complexity of the case).
  • To realize what is the impact of these guidelines/rules in our daily practice.
