The Degidi Protocol - Current state of the art and future developments in placing and restoring implants
When next Sunday morning we meet our patients, what we need are solutions and treatment plans that are not technique sensitive, and that are predictable, minimally invasive and possible at a reasonable cost without any compromise in quality.
Obtaining these combined benefits may seem impossible; in reality it is readily achievable. Marco Degidi will examine the pros and cons of different approaches, emphasizing synergies and possible drawbacks. Particular focus will be given to the WeldOne and Conometric concepts, both created by the presenter. We all know very well how important it is for implants to be rigidly splinted during the healing phase and this cannot be achieved with a simple acrylic restoration.
Thanks to the intraoral welding technique, it is a simple task to manufacture directly inside the patient’s mouth a rigid and reliable titanium framework that provides predictable support for an immediate restoration.
The Conometric Concept makes it possible to manufacture fixed implant-supported restorations that do not require any screws or cement. The Conometric Concept can be used for single teeth, partials or full arches, and with temporary or final prostheses that are either immediately or stage loaded.
Many types of restoration materials can be used. The prosthesis can be removed only by the dentist not by the patient. Drawing on his extensive clinical experience, the speaker will explore these topics and present the scientific basis for his conclusions.
