Lecture Course for the Entire Dental Team
Practice Growth Through Esthetic Regeneration
and Implant Dentistry

Donald P. Callan, B.S., B.A., D.D.S

Implant success is no longer judged by whether the implant integrates or how long the implant remains in the patient's mouth. The lack of precise duplication of color, contour, and function of the natural dentition for the final implant prostheses may ultimately result in an implant failure as defined by your patient. The entire implant team must envision the final result appropriate for each patient. Patients expect and deserve the finest restoration available, a safe procedure, and long term results from dental implants.

This presentation is designed to achieve the criteria of longevity for the dentists and the criteria as set by the implant patient in defining success as esthetics, function, longevity, and a healthy environment. Dr. Callan will also present a dental implant update based on sound biological literature to meet the demands of your patients. Implant selection, placement location, spacing, marketing, surgical stents, immediate load, immediate placement, and surgical placement will also be reviewed.

The purpose of this program is to provide evidence-based information to evaluate grafting materials for periodontal, restorative, and implant dentistry based upon clinical, esthetic, functional, and histological results in humans.

• Understand the goal of implant dentistry.
• Identify the need and indications for implant success.
• Define and avoid implant failure.
• Understand the difference between implant successes and implant survival.
• Select proper implant location to obtain maximum esthetics.
• How to market dental implants to your patients.
• Understand how to prevent implant problems.
• Identify the proper time and sequence of implant placement procedures.
• Defend clinically, functionally, and histologically, the use of the dental implant system being utilized.
• Select proper implants based on sound biological principles.
