OBSERVATION AND SOLUTIONS FOR CRANIO-FACIAL GROWTH
SURGERY IN THE 4TH DIMENSION
Facial changes have been demonstrated in all age groups, although the exact time of onset, magnitude, and vectors are variable and not predictable. Such three-dimensional changes in the position of teeth, bone, and soft tissue relative to the static position of the implants, over time, can introduce esthetic and functional negative consequences. A new surgical protocol to reduce these unintended complications, as well as various grafting procedure and techniques, will be discussed.
OBJECTIVES: At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Identify the vectors of cranial changes in both men and women that are clinically significant for implant reconstruction
Explore surgical planning possibilities to minimize and slow down the impact of such changes
For patients already treated, review surgical correction possibilities and correct as necessary
