There is not a single discipline in dentistry that will test all dimensions of the dental team more than this aspect of dental care. The goal of this presentation is to show each participant how they can predictably integrate the surgical and restorative phases of implant care into their practice. Utilizing the Dawson Academy’s timeless principles of treatment planning and occlusion combined with the latest information on implant dentistry, this presentation will provide a predictable, efficient and profitable path to the integration of all aspects of implant services into their practice.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • How implants are different from teeth, and why the position, angulation and occlusal forces on the implant must be controlled.
  • A step-by-step programmed approach to optimum treatment planning and sequencing even the most difficult implant cases.
  • What essential data you will need to gather to comprehensively diagnose and plan implant dentistry.
  • How to visualize the position of the teeth, prior to implant placement, and why this may be the most important step in the process.
  • A step-by-step protocol for implant placement.
  • How to design an occlusion for a single tooth, a fixed bridge, an implant supported denture, and an implant supported full mouth reconstruction.
