The Evolution of Single Tooth Implant-Supported Restorations

Description of Event:

This program will focus on patient-specific abutments and the simplicity and reliability they bring to the restorative process while allowing for functional and esthetic results for each individual patient.

Course Objectives:

Using the most advanced computer technology, patient-specific abutments are available for all major implant systems and are designed and manufactured to the clinician’s specifications.

The benefits of providing an anatomically correct abutment earlier in the healing cycle will be discussed.

  • Discuss techniques and design of immediate and transitional temporaries.
  • Understand customization of implant-level impressions.
  • Integrate patient-specific abutments into any implant protocol.
  • Learn the easiest and most innovative way to restore implants via a CAD/CAM custom abutment system.
