A Lecture/Participation Course
Minimally Invasive Implant Dentistry

William C. Roddy, D.D.S.

Every 8 minutes someone in the US turns 60. 25% of Americans over 60 are edentulous, 58% over 50 have less than 21 teeth. Our patients are living longer, but many are plagued with ill-fitting prostheses, dry mouth, and root caries- at the time their access to their trusted dentist is limited. Many of these patients would benefit greatly from dental implants, but who is going to make them affordable and readily available? Modern surgical techniques make it possible to treat the majority of implant patients in the general practice setting, efficiently and with minimal morbidity. Today it is possible to not only lower prices but also make these the most profitable procedures in your office by many-fold. You can also decrease costs to the patient in terms of fewer and shorter duration visits, decreased pain, bleeding and post-op complications, and easier and less costly repair and rework. In addition, recent advances in the dental laboratory industry now make what once were the most advanced and costly implant prostheses routine and very affordable dentistry.
