When: November 4, 2010

Dr. Jaime Lozada, Prosthodontist and Implant Surgeon, Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, California
Sponsor: Zimmer Dental

Course Description:

Recent publications have indicated that the placement of implants fail to preserve hard tissue dimensions of the ridge following tooth extraction. Other publications describe that after tooth extraction without implant placement, the coronal portion of the ridge can sustain substantial reduction of the hard tissue volume irrespective of the procedure used to remove the tooth such as flapless or following flap elevation. This presentation will describe innovative techniques to help maintain the integrity of the alveolar process, specifically the buccal plate during the placement of maxillary anterior implants

Course Learning Objectives:

  • To describe the published effects of implant placement in immediate extraction sites.
  • To describe the effects of flap and flapless procedures during implant placement in the esthetic zone.
  • To describe the biomaterials used in the preservation of the alveolar process.


“DISC is powered by Knowledge Factory”

The Denver Implant Study Club (D.I.S.C) was developed by Dr. Aldo Leopardi, prosthodontist and is produced and powered by The Knowledge Factory. Introduced in February of 2003, it is an ongoing comprehensive study club directed towards the restorative treatment of dental implants.

“Developed by a professional, for professionals…”

This professional study club is unlike any other. The format is a series of lectures with extensive hands-on real world experiences that work with actual clinical scenarios applicable to the majority of dental implant systems available. The study club is prosthodontically driven and directed towards the general dentist. The main objective is to empower doctors and their offices while developing the highest level of medical care, techniques and implant practices.
