ITI Online Academy News: May Update
 
This month discover current best practices to recognize, avoid, and treat prosthodontic complications in our new Learning Module. You'll also want to review the techniques and devices available for socket-preserving tooth removal in a new Learning Pathway. To find out what else is new on the ITI Online Academy, just read on.


New Learning Pathway
Tooth replacement by implant therapy has led to a renewed focus on extraction techniques that anticipate subsequent implant placement - especially in the esthetic zone. The Learning Pathway Minimally Traumatic Extraction Techniques discusses techniques for removing an untreatable tooth while minimizing trauma to the alveolar bone.

New Learning Module
Although implants are a reliable, long-term solution to replace natural teeth, prosthodontic complications with fixed dental prostheses do occur - and they occur at a higher rate when supported by implants than by natural teeth. Principles of Managing Hardware Complications Associated with Fixed Dental Prostheses is a new Learning Module that will give you an understanding of why they occur and how best to deal with them. In addition, this module emphasizes preventive measures that can be adopted from the outset of any implant case. As always, the free Assessment can be taken at any time so that you can gauge your knowledge of hardware complications.

New Clinical Cases
Two newly added Clinical Cases outline the successful treatment of geriatric patients who presented with challenging clinical situations and oral hygiene limitations:

Minimally Invasive Treatment of a Patient in Her Nineties After Removing Implants Affected by Severe Peri-implantitis shows the removal and replacement of implants where the primary objective was a functional outcome with minimal risk of complications.

Implant-Retained Rehabilitation after Mandibular Rim Resection demonstrates the many challenges of implant therapy in an unfavorable hard- and soft-tissue environment when the patient is unable to maintain adequate oral hygiene. 

New Congress Lectures
Hard and soft tissue augmentation procedures are often needed in implant therapy, but complications with these procedures are not lacking. In Complications in Regeneration and Reconstruction Matteo Chiapasco uses excellent clinical images to guide you through various complications and their treatment options.

Paolo Casentini champions an interdisciplinary approach in a two-part lecture on The Interdisciplinary Treatment Plan in Implant Dentistry ‒ What the Surgeon Needs to Know from the Prosthodontist and What the Prosthodontist Needs to Know from the Surgeon. In these lectures the final result is optimized by the prosthodontic workflow, prosthetically guided regeneration, and ‘mucogingival implantology.'

ITI Online Academy - An Overview
Watch the Congress Lecture below to get useful information about the principles and features of the ITI Online Academy, the ITI's latest and most innovative education project to date:
ITI President David Cochran and Online Academy Senior Editor Charlotte Stilwell introduce you to our groundbreaking new education offer - a key part of the ITI's vision to become the globally leading academic provider of evidence-based education in implant dentistry.
They show how the Online Academy is the digital evolution of the Treatment Guide concept by combining didactic knowledge with practical examples. They also demonstrate the many free services available - underpinning ITI's goal of dissemination of knowledge, and show how the Online Academy is both an interactive format and an intelligent tool that partners with you to maximize your gains in knowledge and skills.
