WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM THIS ONLINE COURSE?
My name is Tomas Linkevicius, and I’m a clinical and laboratory research director in implant dentistry with 20 years’ experience. After publishing my bestseller in 2019 and selling more than 3000 copies across the world, I’m now pleased to announce the launch of the first online course on Zero Bone Loss Concepts.
Yes, you heard it right - an online course on how to develop and maintain crestal bone stability!
A lot of information is already present in my book and during live conferences, however, it is not possible to reach everybody. This is why I decided to bring Zero Bone Loss Concepts directly to you and provide up-to-date, exclusive and practical educational content, in a digital format.
You will be able to study these amazing principles whenever and wherever you want. Once you sign up to my course, not only will you have access to the content but you will also be part of a community of 500+ learners & colleagues. Sound appealing?
Dr. Tomas Linkevicius has received DDS degree in 2000 in Kaunas University, Lithuania. In 2004 he finished post-graduate program in prosthodontics in Vilnius University. In 2009 he has defended theses “The influence of mucosal tissue thickness on crestal bone stability around dental implants” and received PhD degree in Riga Stradins University, Latvia. Currently, dr. Tomas Linkevicius serves as Assoc. Professor in Institute of Odontology, Vilnius University. He also works in private practice “Vilnius Implantology Center” and is a founder of private research center “Vilnius Research Group”. Dr. Tomas Linkevicius serves as a reviewer in dental journals, like “International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants”, “Journal of Periodontology”, “Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research” and “Journal of Clinical Periodontology”. He is the author and co-author of many articles in international journals, indexed in PubMed.
There are obvious reasons, why immediate implants should be a common-day practise. Yet, this treatment modality is often demonised and avoided. This must be changed, but that only can happen, if clinicians changes his/hers point of view. Clear advantages of immediate implants include:
1. Maintaining of pre-extraction soft tissue architecture
2. Tooth-like soft tissue profile
3. Less functional problems in posterior implants
4. More aesthetic result in anterior region
5. Faster treatment for patients and dentist
All this much more or sometimes even impossible to achieve with delayed implants.
There is a clear explanation why immediate implants are still considered risky. Why we need to find explanation for this fact? Because without clear explanation, the change of mind to start doing immediates is impossible. There are 4 reasons to consider:
1. Thinking, that immediate implants are "new" treatment
2. Infamous past reputation
3. Strong educational attitude against immediate
4. Immediate implants done not properly
I overcome these obstacles with clear explanations!
How many of us know the exact answers to following questions? I mean not just simple explanation, but real true step-by-step knowledge?
1. How do immediate implants integrate?
2. How is the profile tooth maintained?
3. How are peri-implant soft tissues developed after immediate implant placement?
4. How do get Zero bone loss status in immediate implants?
5. How is primary implant stability achieved?
3 hours in total of knowledge! Without it - no control of immediate implant treatment.
Does "the most important" factor exist in immediate implant placement? In contrary to implants, placed in completely healed ridges, think that there is a factor in immediate implant treatment, which overcomes all other discussed issues. What factor it is?
Do you want to know, what is the most frequent question I get during the lectures? If you think, that "How deep should implant be placed during immediate implant placement?" you would be right! It is funny, when you think, that so simple question does not have a straight answer. Actually, did not have, because in this module I give the clear answer - HOW DEEP THE IMPLANT SHOULD BE PLACED!
Immediate implants in molar regions can be divided into 3 types - A, B and C. This classification makes diagnosis much easier and allows to determine, how should implant be placed. Maybe we should use super-wide implants? They have been vilified for long, however do offer predictable treatment!
Immediate premolars can be considered the most easy immediates, certainly, if you know how to place them :) 3 things to consider:
1. Apical stabilisation
2. Mesio-distal stabilisation
Secrets of immediate implant restorations? What are they? Do they exist at all? Some restorative things are important only if implant is placed immediately. This module discusses:
1. Protection channel of the implant
2. Special impression mode for immediates
3. The only material, which can be used for immediate implant restoration
Much more of course...
There is 6 major complications in immediate implants:
1. No primary stability
2. Poor selection of the case
3. Not good 3D position
4. Poor implant design
5. Poor prosthetic treatment
6. Implant loss
This is the video of anterior immediate implant placement, which consists of: atraumatic tooth extraction, implant placement, bone grafting, soft tissue grafting and fabrication of immediate provisional restoration.
