You will learn how to treat many of the everyday issues we are confronted with when planning and restoring implant cases. The concise methods taught in this course will enable you to enjoy restoring implants. We will also discuss the importance of the team approach in helping to gain beautiful long term results. Gaining case acceptance through clear communication is key in the field of implant dentistry.
The art of taking a photograph of your patient’s teeth and smile is extremely important for the restorative dentist. “A picture is worth a thousand words,” an altruism that reflects a meaningful consultation with your patient. Dental photography allows us the opportunity to view teeth during a consultation in a way that was rarely offered in years’ past. It can be extremely eye opening to both the patient and the clinician. These photography techniques assist us with direct and concise communication, gaining case acceptance and future learning capabilities.
Occlusion and Implant Dentistry
Many times the general practitioner gets caught up in every day restorative dentistry and never really grasps the importance of occlusion. Why do teeth wear? What is causing muscular pain and discomfort? How can we predictably restore a patient’s mouth and feel confident that the porcelain will not fracture?
The Full Arch Hybrid Restoration
There are over 35 million people that are totally edentulous today! Many are frustrated with their removable dentures. The Full Arch Hybrid restoration is the answer for many of these patients. Many of our patients present with high dental caries rates due to medication induced xerostomia. These patients are on what we call the “Dental Treadmill”. The Full Arch Hybrid Restoration is the solution for many of these patients because titanium cannot decay! Many patients see the VALUE related to this course of treatment.
