The first ITI event for 2022 will be on ‘New Classification and Concepts on Implant Placement and Loading Protocols’, presented by Dr Adam Hamilton, on the  4th of May, 2022.   Implant placement protocols have been extensively researched and reviewed in an effort to determine the most efficient and predictable pathway for implant therapy following tooth extraction. The timing of implant placement is directly linked to the physiological process of wound healing and ridge alternations which follow tooth extraction. Implant loading protocols have similarly been evaluated to determine the safest time for restoring implants and providing occlusal loading. The osseointegration process and concepts related to primary and secondary implant stability are also dictated by physiological processes similar to those that dictate implant placement. Despite the connection, the relationship between implant placement and loading protocols has never been evaluated.
This lecture will discuss the evolution of implant placement and loading protocols. It will introduce a new classification which redefines the concepts of implant placement and loading protocols, recognising that the two processes are co-dependent variables of one another. The classification will be presented along with a clinical and evidence based approach to the advantages and disadvantages of both implant placement and loading protocols. CPD: 2.5 hours.
This seminar is part of our 24 month Prosthodontic Mini Residency Certificate Program, though you don't have to be enrolled in the program to register.
  Places are limited and preference will be given to ITI members. Non-members can attend one Study Club meeting as a guest at no cost. Guests are then invited to sign up for ITI membership in order to continue attending ITI Study Club meetings and also benefit from a variety of additional ITI membership benefits.
