Zimmer Biomet Institute

Zimmer Biomet Institute (ZBI) transforms the traditional classroom into a revolutionary learning facility. Each Zimmer Biomet Institute is equipped with the latest tools and advancements in implant dentistry as well as state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment. But what truly makes Zimmer Biomet Institute a world leader in dental education is our Simulated Patient Training Laboratory (SimLab).

ZBI’s SimLabs allow clinicians to practice real-life case scenarios, in their entirety, on one-of-a-kind, proprietary simulation patients. During each course, attendees practice multiple procedures on a variety of simulated patients, creating an accelerated learning experience that no other educational facility can replicate. Our industry-leading, advanced surgical cadaver courses also offer clinicians the unique ability to refine their skills by practicing complex procedures on human tissue.

Because learning is a lifelong process, the Zimmer Biomet Institute presents the Lazzara Educational Series. This web-based educational format enables dental professionals to participate in highly interactive sessions exploring a wide range of contemporary clinical topics in implant and reconstructive therapy, with the goal of providing high quality patient care. This type of learning environment is ideal for stimulating discussion among peers. Each program offers one continuing education (CE) credit for full length attendance. Each program is broadcast live from the Zimmer Biomet Institute and is led by leading experts in the profession. Groups of dental professionals (surgeon and restorative clinicians, laboratory technicians, and staff members) may gather for the presentation in various locations around the United States and abroad. Alternatively, individuals may “attend” the lectures in their office or home remotely. Participants will be able to ask questions live, via the web. Group sessions may continue with representatives leading a hands-on experience with models and other educational tools. The 2018 schedule for the Lazzara Educational Series of live CE webcasts will be posted online soon. Please check back to browse and register for upcoming courses.

Course Overview:

This program will give the participants the opportunity to learn about different surgical protocols and techniques for complex treatment including sinus augmentation with simultaneous implant placement. Various sinus augmentation techniques will be explored including lateral window and crestal techniques as well as the use of piezo surgery. Various grafting materials will be discussed as well as the use of short implants to avoid the need for sinus augmentation in some cases.

Speaker: Vahik Paul Meserkhani, DDS, MSD†
Continuing Education: 1 Credit
Course Overview:

Achieving optimal, predictable results with implant restorations may be one of the most challenging goals in implant dentistry. This program will present several challenging clinical scenarios involving missing teeth, as well as the surrounding hard and soft tissues in the aesthetic zone. Preoperative planning will be emphasized as a means of avoiding or minimizing surgical and/or restorative complications. Critical diagnostic steps will be discussed, including fabrication of surgical guides to optimize implant placement. The literature is replete with clinical guidelines relative to provisional restorations being critical in obtaining optimal results; provisional restorations are also important regarding abutment selection and design features, as well as establishing contours of the definitive restorations. Clinical situations will be illustrated where implant placement and/or tissue contours were not ideal and additional surgical interventions and prosthodontic modifications were needed to resolve the complications.
