REGISTRATION FORM Jacobs Nov 3 2017 Implant Complications, Color and Shade Selection, Immediate Prosthodontics, Cranio-Facial Implants Implant Complications: This presentation will illustrate the most common implant complications and how to prevent and deal with these complications. This includes less than ideal implant placement, abutment loosening, soft tissue problems, acrylic resin fracture, porcelain fracture, screw breakage and fixture breakage. Each problem will be evaluated and a discussion of how the problem could have been avoided will be a central theme of this presentation. We will also demonstrate how these problems and complications were addressed. Color and Shade Selection: Color Science as it relates to dental shade selection will be discussed.
