ITI Online Academy News: April Update

 

New Learning Module

Radiography plays an important role in implant dentistry. Occasionally, errors will occur that result in a diagnostically unacceptable image. When this happens, you must have the necessary skills to recognize, evaluate, correct, and ultimately avoid these errors.

Recognizing and Troubleshooting Radiographic Imaging Errors covers both 2D and 3D imaging issues and also gives guidelines on how to correctly translate linear measurements from the image to a specific clinical situation.

Don't forget to take the included free Assessment to check your understanding of the concepts presented in the Learning Module.

 

New Learning Pathway

Every potential patient for implant therapy is examined radiographically as well as clinically. The Radiographic Assessment Learning Pathway provides an overview of the role of diagnostic radiography as well as the imaging options for implant site assessment and treatment planning. Four different instructional formats – Learning Modules, lectures, clinical applications, and ITI Consensus Statements – are included.

 

New Lecture Recordings

This month brings the release of three exclusive Online Academy Lectures recorded during the 2018 Consensus Conference. These lectures take you outside of the esthetic zone to show how implantology can change the lives of patients with resected jaws.

Osseointegrated implants and maxillofacial prosthetics have revolutionized the field of reconstructive surgery for craniofacial defects. Tara Aghaloo shares her Surgical Perspectives on the Use of Implants in Maxillofacial Reconstruction in a short introductory lecture with excellent before-and-after images.

In patients with reconstructed jaws, implant-supported overdentures improve quality of life and mastication, but the peri-implant tissues and supporting bone differ from those of unreconstructed jaws. Two lectures from Vinay Kumar - Osseous Considerations and Soft Tissue Considerations in Implant-Based Maxillofacial Reconstruction – show how "denture-based planning" and specialized grafting techniques can lead to successful rehabilitation.

 

Free Item of the Month for ITI Members

Ignorance of the law is not a valid defense if a patient takes legal action against you. Legal and Ethical Considerations in Implant Practice is an overview of informed consent, necessary documentation, and ethical duties and obligations to our patients. It's recommended viewing for novice as well as experienced clinicians.
