Grafting the Path to Surgical Implant Success: Understanding Why Grafting Procedures and Implants Fail, and How to Avoid These Complications (In-person course)

4 CEU, Core • Member Pricing: $159 early / $179 regular

For the dental implant surgeon, few things are more upsetting than a patient presenting back to your office with a failed implant; be it a short term post-surgical failure or a long term issue. It is important to understand that oversimplifying implant surgery is a recipe for complications. More often than not we must accept that some form of grafting and augmentation is required to establish a robust bone volume and better soft tissue quality to ensure ideal osseointegration and long term success. Various hard and soft tissue augmentation approaches are used to create the optimal foundation for dental implant placement . We will discuss useful techniques for hard and soft augmentation as they relate to the delayed and immediate implant placement protocols, and the pit-falls to avoid. These pearls will ultimately provide predictable surgical results.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the surgical principles and techniques of successful guided bone regeneration and soft tissue management
  • Know when to place an immediate vs delayed implant and the grafting/placement protocols related to each
  • Know which bio-materials to use to help with augmentation procedures
  • Review implant placement protocols that will reduce post placement crestal bone resorption

Tamir Wardany, DDS:

Dr. Tamir Wardany is one of the few board certified oral implantologists in California who holds diplomate status with the American Board of Oral Implantology, and one of an even smaller handful of implant specialists in the world , that limits his practice exclusively to the surgical component of implant and bone augmentation procedures. He has dedicated the past 19 years to extensive training in implant surgery and its associated bone augmentation procedures. After completing Dental School at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tn , Dr. Wardany completed a fellowship in implant dentistry through State University of New York at Stonybrook. He then continued his training overseas, spending extensive time in Europe, training alongside some of the world’s leaders in implant and bone augmentation surgery.

In addition to his years of training, Dr. Wardany conducts clinical research in his office and has collaborated on research studies related to bone regeneration and dental implant biology with the department of reconstructive surgery at Stanford University. He has been a product advisor for Geistlich Biomaterials and actively lectures for Straumann and Geistlich Biomaterials, a leading regenerative company based in Switzerland. In an effort to always be on the forefront of this specialization, Dr. Wardany maintains membership with the International Team for Implantology and the Osteology Foundation. Both groups focus on research to further the quality of care in implant surgery and complex graft procedures.

Dr. Wardany was a former collegiate swimmer born and raised in Sacramento. He is a proud Sacramento Country Day and Jesuit alumnus and lives in Land Park with his wife and three amazing children. Once in a while he still gets time to swim a few laps and watch 49er football.
