Exhibitor: DENTSPLY Implants UK & Ireland
Date: 09 December 2015
Time: 1900 Refreshments 1930 Lecture
Location: The Winchester Hotel & Spa, Worthy Lane, Winchester, SO23 7AB

Geoffrey Pullen has been placing and restoring dental implants for almost 30 years in general practice. In his lecture he will speak about his experiences with dental implants , the highs, the lows and more importantly, the long term. There is no doubt that if you never place or restore dental implants, they have become a major part of the dental scene, for patients and professionals alike. So what works? What doesn’t work? What is theoretically possible and, more importantly, what will definitely work in practice.

1. What are realistic outcomes?

2. Can you guard against peri-implantitis? And is it as big a problem as commonly believed?

3. Can Implant failure be predicted?

4. Attitudes to failure in dentistry

5. Loads of success carried out simply, effectively and inexpensively!

Learning Objectives:

  • Greater understanding of placing and restoring dental implants
  • Awareness of Peri-implantitis and how to guard against it
  • Awareness of attitudes towards failure in dentistry
