In this special unique symposium several diverse types of implantologists will be asked to present their philosophical answers to the following clinical questions: 1. What is your ideal site preservation protocol for deficient sites (explaining different site presentations) 2. What is your clinical criteria for extracting a tooth? 3. What is your clinical criteria for immediate implant placement/immediate loading (temporization) after extraction? Following the brief presentation by each implantologist a lively panel discussion will ensue with direct registrant interaction. This is anticipated to be our most interactive and excitingly relevant PDL event to date.

Course Outline

I. Each presenter will spend 15 minutes rationalizing their answer to the 3 description questions

II. A case example and literature will support each presenter’s rationale to the questions.

III. A fully interactive question and answer session will allow the presenters and audience to directly ask for additional information and support for the presenter’s rationale


At the end of the webinar the audience will gain an insight to the most important contemporary questions being debated in implantology:

  1. The participant will better understand the indications for grafting and advanced techniques being currently employed for deficient site development

  2. The participant will be able to critically evaluate the pro and con considerations for extracting or saving a tooth

  3. The participant will understand when it is better to develop an implant in multiple steps or consider when it is acceptable to immediately place or immediately temporize an implant

  4. The participant will gain an insight into what clinical controversies remain as unresolved in clinical implant science.
