Todd Schoenbaum is a full Clinical Professor at UCLA, Director of UCLA Continuing Education, and trains residents and students at UCLA in implant restorations and Biostatistics.
He has published over 50 papers, 8 chapters, and one textbook. He is the recipient of the scientific writing award from the JPD. He has a master’s in clinical research from the UCLA School of Medicine.
Dr. Schoenbaum has been invited to present his clinical and scientific work at conferences worldwide. He maintains a private practice limited to implant treatment with Dr. Peter Moy.
Course Description and Learning Objectives:
Implant Prosthetics in the Aesthetic Zone: Science, Protocol and Technique
The restoration of implants in the aesthetic zone varies significantly from implant treatment in other areas. Successful outcomes require not just osseointegration of the implant fixture itself, but also creation of appropriate gingival architecture, selection and fabrication of an abutment / crown system that balances aesthetic and functional demands. Special attention will be given to provisional techniques, abutment / crown selection, impression techniques and gingival shaping. The techniques and materials demonstrated will balance efficient and practical techniques with clinical results and scientific evidence.
- How to make provisional restorations that enhance the aesthetic outcome and maximize aesthetic predictability
- How to select the appropriate abutment / crown in the aesthetic zone to maximize long term aesthetics and durability
- Cement vs. Screw retained restorations: when, why and how
- How to efficiently take implant impressions that maximize accuracy
- How to make and deliver aesthetic provisionals with immediate implant placement
- How to predictably manage and create soft tissue aesthetics around anterior implants
Controversies and innovations for predictable implant restorations
This course will provide an updated look at some of the more controversial topics in implant restorations. Extensive time will be spent on looking at clinical results, tips and techniques, along with scientific evidence.
- How, when and where to select Cement vs. screw retained restorations, including advantages and disadvantages.
- Abutment selection, design, and manipulation
- Learn when and why to splint adjacent implant restorations. Updated evidence is changing our approach.
- Digital impressions vs. conventional materials
- Learn simple and effective techniques for covering implant screws while eliminating foul taste and odor.
