Program:

Restoring Dental Implants in 2015: An Evidence Based Approach to Guide the Clinician to Best Practices”

Restoring Dental Implants is extremely challenging. Understanding options related to crown retention, confirming fit of components and maintain the implant crown are all new concepts.

The following academies: AAP, AO & AARD have stated that excess cement can lead to peri-implant disease and that it is considered a major risk factor.

Many techniques and products have been developed specifically for cement retained implant restorations, some are potentially detrimental to implants, with dentists not fully aware of the issues and implications of using an inappropriate material or method.

To date no protocol exists for cementing implant retained super-structures.

Many of the cements we use are inappropriate.

The goal is to examine these from a scientific based perspective and present up-to-date and as of yet unpublished research data that will be used to develop a suitable protocol for clinical practice.

Computation design- the first of its kind is helping solve this problem. Dr. Wadhwani is the only person with this data!

This lecture explores many of the problems encountered with cement selection, application techniques and gives clinical guidelines based on research projects currently being undertaken.

 

Objectives:

  1. Understanding the science behind best practices.
  2. Defining the detection of cement selection- understand what you need from a cement material – be aware – be safe.
  3. Preventing failures and understanding detection techniques for evaluating excess cement extrusion.
  4. Developing a “gestalt” (wholeness approach) cementation protocol for implant restorations.
  5. Cementation V’s screw retained: How do you know the abutments fits?
  6. Bone Loss: Is it real or not real?
  7. Soft tissue health: All implant disease essentially starts in the soft tissue.

Chandur Wadhwani, BDS, MSD

Dr. Wadhwani received his dental degree from the University College London School of Dentistry in 1986. He received his specialty certificate in Prosthodontics Wadhwani,%20Chandur%20photo%202and Masters Degree from the University of Washington. Dr. Wadhwani is an assistant professor at Loma Linda University and affiliate instructor in the Department of Restorative Dentistry at the University of Washington. He has a full time specialty practice (Prosthodontics) in Bellevue, Washington.

In 2014 he received the prestigious “Best Clinical Innovations Presentation” from the Academy of Osseointegration. Dr. Wadhwani is an ITI fellow and past president of the Washington State Society of Prosthodontists. He has lectured both nationally and internationally on topics related to clinical prosthodontics and implant dentistry. He is the primary author of over 30 implant related articles in peer reviewed dental journals including ;Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, IJOMI, Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry, British Dental Journal, Dentistry Today, Quintessence Int. CIDRR. He has just published an evidence based book dedicated to implant restoration and has contributed to chapters in other implant texts.

Dr. Wadhwani is presently involved in several aspects of dental research in Endodontics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics with a main emphasis is evidence based best practice. Currently he works in conjunction with the University of Washington, UCSF, University of Texas, OHSU and Loma Linda University. He has co-authored a book dedicated to implant restorations – ‘Cementation in Dental Implantology:An Evidence-Based Guide’, and contributed chapters to the books ‘Fundamentals of Implant Dentistry’ (John Beumer & others) and ‘Dental Implant Complications’ (Stuart J. Froum).
