Restoring Implants – Comparison & Demonstration of Techniques

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

You restore implants routinely. Are you pleased with the results, or are there better, faster, easier and less expensive alternatives?  At last, placement and restoration of dental implants has become a relatively routine part of dental practice. However, there are changes that occur routinely as related to research findings. This presentation includes methods to attach both fixed and removable prostheses to implants. Attachment acceptability of crowns, fixed prostheses, and removable partial and complete prostheses varies considerably related to the type of attachment. Some are best with strongly fixed attachments, while others are best with resilient attachments. The attachments not only vary significantly in their clinical success, they are different in the difficulty or ease of placement, their long-term acceptability, and importantly, their long-term cost to both dentist and patient.  Update yourself on the current state-of-the-art on implant restoration. This video will guide your decisions.
