Program of the BCDA
Key concepts and procedures of implant treatment, from diagnosis through surgery to the restorative phase, will be discussed including strategies to idealize the esthetic outcome.
Module 1: Bone…Strategies to Reduce Resorption
Module 2: Bone Augmentation…Setting the Foundation for Esthetics
Module 3: Surgical and Restorative Protocols
Module 4: Common Surgical / Restorative Management Strategies
Module 5: Implant Position
Module 6: Implant & Abutment Design
Blueprint for Ideal Implant Esthetics I – $150 / 2 CE Credits
Blueprint for Ideal Implant Esthetics II – $225 / 3 CE Credits
Dissecting implant treatment into key concepts and procedures that are crucial to a highly successful esthetic outcome is the focus of “A Blueprint for Ideal Implant Esthetics I and II”, two new on demand courses available on the British Columbia Dental Association’s (BCDA) CE@DLC Program Portal.
Launched in September 2014, these self-paced courses are presented by Dr. Sonia Leziy, a specialist in periodontics, and Dr. Brahm Miller, a specialist in prosthodontics. These well-published dentists from North Vancouver lecture extensively around the world, with Dr. Leziy focused on implants and advanced esthetics/periodontal plastic surgery, and Dr. Miller on restoratively-based implant rehabilitation, tissue development through provisionalization and all-ceramic restorations.
What will you learn?
These two courses lay out a ‘blueprint’ of how to achieve esthetic and restorative success with implants. “Every phase of treatment planning is deliberate and requires a clear understanding of what is possible and the skills required to carry out each procedure,” said Dr. Leziy. “Knowing what to do and when, helps in the initial and long-term stability of the implant treatment,” added Dr. Miller.
Part I of the course presents the surgical blueprint that sets the tone for successful case completion: treatment planning concepts, techniques and materials to control bone and soft tissue reactions around implants. Part II builds on Part I, emphasizing the required treatment planning concepts, surgical techniques, restorative procedures and materials that affect the transmucosal tissues and esthetic outcome.
To build on the content from the online courses, Dr. Leziy and Dr. Miller are also offering a hands-on workshop. This integrated, curriculum-based approach to continuing education is what attracted them to become CE@DLC Program speakers.
“Learning how to achieve implant treatment success has to be an active process,” said Dr. Leziy. “Supplementing these online courses with experiential training is the most effective way to help practitioners deploy the knowledge learned into the practical skills required to provide high quality care to patients.”
Surgical hands-on session coming in 2015
“A Blueprint for Ideal Implant Esthetics I and II” are part of a surgical training curriculum and are pre-requisites for the hands-on session scheduled for April 25, 2015 at the BCDA Learning Centre (DLC).
The session will be restricted to 11 participants and will include implant placement and adjunctive soft/hard tissue surgical procedure demonstrations; delivery of provisional and definitive restorations; and will be followed-up with live treatment.
