Roland Glauser: Immediate function: indications, contraindications, complications - in partially edentulous patients
- Decision guidelines and levels of decision making for immediate loading protocols
- Discussion of indications, contraindications, potential complications
- Review of various complexity levels
- New York 2013 symposium presentation
The lecture gives insight in decision guidelines, indications, contraindications as well as complications and potential failures for immediate function protocols in edentulous patients. Dr Glauser presents the 'patient journey' from pre-treatment evaluation, planning with digital and analog tools, prognosis, to treatment completion and treatment follow-up, and reviews the levels of decision making such as e.g. lip line and transition zone, predictability of peri-implant esthetics, anatomical and functional limitations, treatment alternatives. Dr Glauser discusses different complexity levels such as healed sites, extraction sites and situations with bone defects, and points out that patient expectations need to be considered when deciding for an immediate function or staggered approach.
