Root Form Surgery Division A Bone
Surgical Session 2 advances the clinician’s skill level and knowledge of root forms and addresses methods to treat various bone densities. The focus of this session will include surgery, uncovery and short and long term complications for root forms. The second surgical session of the Misch International Implant Institute addresses partial and completely edentulous mandibular overdentures and fixed prostheses for multiple adjacent missing teeth in the posterior mandible. Altered surgical approaches, dependent upon bone density are presented in detail. The bone volume classification covered at this session is Misch-Judy Division A and B. Complications presented include: excessive bleeding during surgery, nerve and bone loss during initial healing. Hands-on labs will give clinicians the chance to apply learned techniques in a control environment.

Course Objectives

  • Describe and perform the step by step protocol of the Brånemark surgical approach for root form implant with “osseointegration” as the treatment goal.
  • Understand the surgical treatment plan options for abundant bone (Division A).
  • Appreciate and describe the components involved in implant body design, including the crest module, implant body and apical criteria.
  • Understand and apply principles for soft tissue incision, reflection and suturing in conjunction with root form placement.
  • Compare the surgical approach for ideal bone and the Brånemark approach to conditions of very hard or very soft bone.
  • Appreciate and reduce the consequences of pressure and heat generation during implant osteotomy procedures.
  • Increase surgical success rates in implant surgery in conditions of very hard or very soft bone.
  • Understand the diagnosis and treatment options of altered nerve sensation related to the posterior mandibular implant surgery.
  • Describe the surgical anatomy of the posterior mandible, with emphasis on the safe zone for endosteal implants.
  • Perform a detailed surgical uncovery of root form implants which is dependent upon the soft and hard tissue conditions.
  • Perform root form surgical procedures on single tooth and edentulous patient models.
  • Understand the events of bone formation after the extraction of a natural tooth.
  • Apply basic bone grafting procedures after the extraction of a natural tooth.
  • Understand the principles of osteoinduction.
  • Describe and treat the complications of root form surgery and the treatment of long term root form complications.
  • List six treatment plan options for removable restorations in a completely edentulous patient.
  • Understand and perform sedation for implant surgical procedures.
  • Provide radiographic interpretation for partially and completely edentulous patient conditions with available bone height.
  • Discuss and describe treatment plan options for partially and completely edentulous patients who desire fixed or removable restorations when adequate bone height is available.
