Course Description
The UNC Department of Periodontology is very excited to welcome Dr. Carlo Ercoli as the guest speaker for the 18th Annual Straumann Lecture. This lecture series has been a tradition for North Carolinas periodontists, general practitioners, specialists, and team members for many years. A clinical in-depth overview of contemporary implant surgical and restorative techniques for single crowns, fixed partial dentures, and full arch rehabilitations will be provided. The incorporation of dental implants in the treatment options mentioned above will be discussed with the idea that appropriate treatment planning in dentistry has been substantially modified by the predictability of modern dental implantology. These topics will be addressed from the perspective of a dual perio/prostho specialists point of view, with concepts, techniques, and clinical tips shared that are highly applicable to any dental practice.

1. Develop treatments plan single and multiple unit fixed prostheses from surgical and restorative standpoints for partially and fully edentulous patients.
2. Use anatomic landmarks for planning and executing full arch rehabilitation, including number of implants, locations, and inclinations.
3. Review the rationale for and learn clinical step-by-step surgical and prosthetic techniques (including troubleshooting) for immediate loading of dental implants in complex restorations.
4. Manage surgical and restorative complications in complex implant cases.
