Practice Growth Through Esthetic Regeneration and Implant Dentistry
Lecture Course for the Entire Dental Team
September 28, 2018
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.
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.
