Program Purpose / Objectives

Program Information

1. Comprehensive Dental Implant Treatment Planning

Fundamental principles in proper treatment planning will be essential for predictable clinical success in implantology. Despite our technical advances and improved biomaterials, understanding of the core principles in implant treatment planning will be of paramount importance to all clinical cases.

Topics to be discussed:
  • Evaluation of critical factors to salvage the compromised dentition versus implant replacement therapy
  • Patient selection criteria and evaluation of risk factors in implantology
  • Diagnostic evaluation with 15 point checklist for posterior implant treatment planning
  • Diagnostic evaluation with 25 point checklist for anterior implant treatment planning
  • Diagnostic evaluation with 30 point checklist for implant removable prosthetics
  • Diagnostic evaluation with 30 point checklist for “ Teeth In A Day ” full arch implant rehabilitation therapy

2. Prevention and Management of Complications in Implant Dentistry

The evidence in the scientific literature supports that Implant Dentistry obtains a success rate of greater than 90%. With an increasing trend for number and acceptance of dental implants used as a viable tooth replacement therapy, complications and failures rates have increased proportionally.

Complications and failures in implant dentistry can range from minor to major, reversible to irreversible and problematic to detrimental. These problems can have many different levels of undesirable consequences that can lead to compromised or less than optimal clinical results for our patients, nonproductive wasted clinical chair time, extra financial burden to the patient and dentist, create antagonistic tension with our patients and ultimately affect the reputation for the dentist and the profession. Complaints to the regulatory colleges and litigations involving implant dentistry have also demonstrated an increasing trend in the number of cases over the past decade.

This course will outline and address the various components of complications and failures with the objective to understand the following topics:

Patient selection criteria for Implant Dentistry:
  • Medical indications and contraindications
  • Dental history and evaluation to identify Risk Factors
  • Evaluation of patient’s psychological status and expectations

Treatment Planning complications:
  • Differentiation between prosthetically driven versus surgically driven treatment plans
  • Number and position of dental implants required specific for each implant treatment modality
  • Sequencing and timing for treatment protocols
  • Selection criteria for diameter and lengths of implants as it relates to the final prosthetic restoration

Surgical Complications:
  • Early surgical failures (implant lost before loading)
  • Late surgical failures (implant lost after loading)
  • Hard tissue complications (peri-implantitis)
  • Soft tissue complications (peri-implant mucositis)
  • Iatrogenic complications (anatomical violations)
  • Hard and soft tissue grafting complications

Prosthetic Complications:
  • Complications related to implant supported REMOVABLE prosthesis
  • Complications related to implant supported FIXED prosthesis
  • Technical and component complications in implant prosthesis
  • Management of implant occlusion and parafunctional habits

3. Innovative and Predictable Clinical Solutions to Challenge in Implant Dentistry

Research and technical advances in implant dentistry have proven to increase the predictable success rates and improve survival rates in implant treatment. However, there are many clinical challenges that require proper management in order to achieve predictable clinical outcomes. The lecture will address many new and innovative technical advances to aid the clinician in implant dentistry.

Topics to Be Covered:
  • Concept of guided surgeries using CBCT and computerized software programs
  • Indirect sinus grafting using the Crestal Approach Sinus kit “CAS-kit” and simultaneous implant placement
  • Predictable ridge splitting technique to expand narrow ridges and simultaneous implant placements
  • Atraumatic Autogenous bone harvesting for grafting procedures
  • Immediate implant placement considerations for the Anterior zones
  • Indications and contraindications for immediate implant placement in the Posterior zones
  • Guided bone regeneration options with traditional and “Smart Membrane” technique
  • Full mouth implant reconstruction for immediate provisionalization utilizing angled implants and the innovative “A.I.M” approach


Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Ports of Call
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy (Embark and Debark) - Ah, the Eternal City: Romance, culture, food, history and fashion. You'll have to plan your time carefully as the sights of Rome are captivating and seemingly endless: the Colosseum and Forum, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain and, of course the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel.You can't fit it all in one day (or even a week, to be honest). Be sure to spend at least a couple days enjoying the many pleasures Rome has to offer before and/or after your cruise conference.
Athens (Piraeus), Greece - You'll climb the Acropolis, the site of ancient Athens, crowned by the immortal Parthenon. Its chiseled columns were raised by Pericles, Athens's great general. Rest your running shoes in the temple of Nike. A little shopping and souvlaki in the Plaka and you're practically an (ancient) Athenian!
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - Ephesus, one of the world's finest archeological sites, awaits. Here you will walk the Arcadian Way, view the facade of the Library of Celsus and visit the Amphitheatre.
Messina, Sicily - A beautiful sheltered harbor is your gateway to Taormina, a small town at heart despite its major tourist attraction: the sublime Teatro Greco, offering panoramic views of the coastline and snow-capped Mt. Etna.
Mykonos, Greece - For pure Mediterranean pizzazz, Mykonos can't be beat. Designer boutiques and beautifully bronzed Greek gods and goddesses lie on Mykonos' beaches. And Mykonos' famous five white churches look down on it all in oblivious serenity.
Naples, Italy - Capital of Southern Italy, the largest city of Campania, Naples is the third most populated city in Italy (after Rome and Milan), with over a million inhabitants, and is the most important industrial center and trading port for the South. Naples itself can provide a day's fun and entertainment, if its somewhat rundown appearance doesn't dissuade you. Or, join a tour of incredible Pompeii, frozen in time since A.D. 79 when Mt. Vesuvius brought an end to that then-thriving city. Or, take a quick ferry across the bay to the flowery Isle of Capri. Or, (yes, there's more) visit fabulous Sorrento, vacation spot for the well to do.
Rhodes, Greece - The crusader Knights of St. John made Rhodes their headquarters. Explore the massive fortress of the Palace of Grand Masters, and peer into tiny rooms of the Inns which once housed the knights. See where the towering Colossus of Rhodes once stood -- it could be seen for miles at sea!
Santorini, Greece - The view from the top of Santorini is breathtaking. The harbor below is said to be the site of the lost city of Atlantis! Visit the ruins of Akrotiri and discover a recently unearthed Minoan town which was extinguished by a volcanic cataclysm in 1500 B.C.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
