This program will provide an overview of the appropriate indications and prosthetic applications for dental implant treatment. A range of restorative options will be presented from fully edentulous cases to single or multiple tooth implant cases. Topics that will be discussed include treatment planning for esthetic success and the restoration process with corresponding prosthetic component options.
Participants will learn components required for implant-level and abutment-level impressions.
