Simple, Inexpensive Implant Solutions for Edentulous Mandibles

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

What is the most frustrating commonly occurring procedure in dentistry? The patient with a resorbed edentulous mandible! These patients can be treated relatively easily, both surgically and prosthodontically, with either one of two procedures.  Both are well within the typical GP’s potential expertise. In this video, Gordon accomplishes surgical placement of two conventional-diameter implants and also four small-diameter implants in two typical edentulous patients.  He shows the best, easiest prosthodontic materials and techniques AND—the happy patient can usually afford this relatively inexpensive and successful technique. Your patients will appreciate you for doing these procedures for them.
