IMMEDIATE DENTOALVEOLAR RESTORATION (IDR): Immediately loaded implants in compromised sockets

Course Description


Single-tooth replacement in the aesthetic zone has been one of the most common indications for dental implant placement. Compromised teeth are removed using atraumatic principles and immediately replaced by an implant-supported provisional restoration, with excellent aesthetic, biological, and functional results.

However, in cases of compromised sites with bone loss/gingival recessions, the clinical scenario presents a different dilemma. Until now, all developed surgical recommendations required long-term treatment with possible undesirable complications in the tissue architecture.

The Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) is a surgical and prosthetical technique established to broaden indications for immediate loading on individual teeth. In this way, tissue losses with varied extensions are reconstructed in the same surgical session of implant placement and provisional crown installation, reducing the number of interventions and keeping predictability on aesthetic aspects. The IDR protocol was developed more than 8 years ago from the need to minimize the treatment time and morbidity of reconstructive procedures used in these cases, which ultimately halve the patients recovery time and therefore allows dentists to finish cases much quicker.

In this course, we will review the scientific basis of the step-by-step technique of IDR and the indications for its use. A procedure which advocates minimally invasive surgery, flapless procedures, with predictable reproducible outcomes saving patient recovery time and early case completion.

Several case studies will be presented, showing one or more compromised socket walls of the teeth involved, with or without changes of the gingival margins, some with more than 8 years of clinical, radiographic and CT scan follow-up.

This course is presented as a 4 day program or a 2 day program: The 4 day program consists of two days theory and treatment planning, followed by a practical two day workshop aimed at both experienced and non experienced dentists. The 2 day program is offered as a stand alone program and consists of a two day theory lecture/treatment planning.
