ITI Online Academy News: October Update


New Learning Pathway

Choosing a dental laboratory can be fraught with difficulty and confusion. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the large number of options available. To evaluate and choose among these options, the clinician needs a clear strategy based on relevant criteria. Working with a Dental Laboratory includes a Learning Module and a clinical example of effective communication between clinician and lab to achieve the desired outcome.


New Learning Module

Whether replacing a single tooth or a complete arch, implant treatment is centered on one main goal: to achieve optimal physiologic, functional, and esthetic outcomes.

Oral Physiology describes the functional components of the oral cavity in a clear, straightforward style. This information is a prerequisite for successful reproduction of oral structures through implant therapy.

Its easy-to-understand format and accompanying Assessment makes it appropriate for beginning learners, as well as for practicing clinicians looking for a refresher on oral physiology as it relates to implant therapy. 


New Congress Lectures

Wouldn't you rather plan for success than failure? In Managing and Avoiding Complications in Implant Dentistry Dean Morton shows you how teamwork and communication can be effective strategies to achieve successful treatment outcomes.

The landscape of digital dentistry is changing so rapidly that staying abreast of the latest developments can seem like an impossible task. A great place to start is Digital Placement – Guided Surgery and Surgical Stents, a user-friendly overview of 3D planning tools from renowned clinician and educator German Gallucci.

Zirconia and titanium each have benefits and risks, but is one better than the other? Can you confidently select between them for your particular patient? In When to Choose Titanium vs. Zirconia Abutments Anja Zembic offers her insight on selecting an abutment material, based on the latest research.


Free Item of the Month for ITI Members

Patients and clinicians have increasingly high expectations for an esthetic outcome, so you'll definitely want to take advantage of your free access to Esthetic Planning for Implant-Supported Fixed Dental Prostheses, a Learning Module by Daniel Thoma. This module covers facial/perioral, prosthesis-related, and peri-implant soft tissue factors.

You can access your free learning content on the top right of this page.
