Patients are living longer in a world with increased stresses, making occlusal disease one of the greatest threats to their dentition. There is not, however, a single discipline in dentistry that will test all dimensions of the dental team more than implant dentistry. The goal of this presentation is to illustrate why and how every general/restorative dentist must master the treatment planning, surgical, and restorative aspects of implant care.
›› Learn a step-by-step protocol for implant placement
›› Understand when to consider an occlusal splint upon completing the case
›› Discover why cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) is a must for planning cases
›› Discuss how implants are different from teeth, and why the position, angulation, and occlusal forces must be controlled
