Implant Dentistry in the Modern Age – What is Possible Today?

Presented by The Dental Guys
April 29, 2022
8:00 am – 10:00 am
  • Wesley Mullins, D.D.S.
  • Jonathan Rogers, D.M.D.

With so much technological advancement and updated evidence-based information on how to predictably place and restore dental implants, why is it so common to see implant dentistry still practiced like it was 20 years ago? Through discussion of research and clinical examples, this presentation will illustrate to attendees what is possible today to create long-term esthetic and functional results. Topics of discussion include: surgical guide selection, immediate implants, custom tissue formers, and restorative options.

Learning Objectives:
1) Identify keys to successful restoratively driven implant placement.
2) Understand the Dual Zone therapeutic concept of immediate implant placement and socket grafting.
3) Recognize the difference between keyless and keyed surgical guide options.
4) Identify where and how to use custom tissue formers.
5) Identify resources to help make restorative decisions.
