Gordon J. Christensen International Study Club

rescuing failing restorations

Featuring  Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

Crowns and fixed prostheses are the single most revenue-producing part of a typical general practice, but they are expensive! Wouldn’t you like to make them serve as long as possible? Gordon has numerous rescue techniques that can help! Some rescue procedures are well proven to increase the service potential of restorations, while others are less predictable. This video shows many rescue procedures, including: repairing margin defects on failing crowns, closing open contact areas, esthetic restoration of endo and implant access holes in crowns, inexpensive splinting of mobile teeth, removing implant-supported crowns when there is a loose abutment screw, making low-cost resin crowns, and others!  While restoration salvage may not provide a long-term solution, your patients appreciate your help and will come back for additional treatment when it becomes necessary.

Diagnosis & Treatment of Failing Implants

Featuring:  Jon B. Suzuki, DDS, PhD, MBA & Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

Titanium alloy root-form dental implants have been used for many years with remarkable success.  However, dentists encounter failing implants quite frequently.  A major question is when and how to diagnose and treat the obvious problems.  Are they failing because of improper placement, patient oral hygiene practices, microorganism invasion, allergy to metals, occlusion, or other factors?  What is peri-implantitis?  What causes it?  How do you treat this problem?  When and how should an implant be removed?  Should new implants be placed in the same sites as previously failed implants?

Viewing this video and hearing the comments from both a periodontist and a prosthodontist will significantly help you understand, diagnose and treat failing implants.
