One of the most common causes of chronic disease, pain and suffering is dead teeth. SESSION THREE explores the literature behind diagnosis and treatment of oral infection, ischemic bone disease (aka cavitation) and toxic titanium alloy implants. Live patient surgery augments the experience, showing docs that complications are not unique to them! Zirconia implant use is also covered in depth, as multiple ceramic implant systems are explored and placed in live surgery. Participants can handle and experience different makes and models of ceramic implants. Case studies amplify what is discussed in lecture and seen in surgery.
NOTE: HDES3 now includes the option of SDS-specific zirconia implant training. This training has been specifically requested by Dr. Ulrich Volz in order to standardize SDS implant placement in the US. SDS-specific training happens on Thursday. The general session happens on Friday and Saturday.
