Where restorations are involved, good communication between dentists and technicians is the key to successful outcomes and happy patients. The consequences of poor communication can be reflected in several ways depending on where the breakdown occurs. The cost associated with these breakdowns can have financial and professional ramifications. Everyone involved can share in the joy of the process and be energized by the possibilities or live through the frustration and question their purpose. This course will explore the steps in bridging the gap between the patient, dentist, and technician. To critically breakdown the treatment planning process and clinical steps and to hone in and focus as a united front to deliver beautiful results.

Esthetics in Implant Dentistry "Enhancing Confidence in Restorations" - EDU-040922

Apr 08 - 09, 2022
Las Vegas, NV, US
Luigi Massa

The direction that implantology is taking is to plan implants from a “crown down” or “prosthetically driven” perspective. Taking an open tray or a closed tray impression can be easily taught and understood, but the implant placement in a tridimensional position is key towards our long-lasting success in implantology. Soft tissue management in relation to the restorative material of choice subgingival and supragingival is another variable that plays an important role in our esthetic restorative plan. This course will take you from a clinical acceptance status to EXCELLENCE in your daily implantology.
