Implants are the essential foundation for modern dental rehabilitation. The technology has evolved but the protocols and procedures we use are often quite dated.
These days we spend more time and resources on Regeneration than on Implants. If the bone and soft tissue is not there for our implants we need to be prepared to augment and Regenerate.
Surgical Guides, Intra-Oral Scanbodies, 3-D printing, Digital Design, Laser Sintering, Titianium, Zirconia, PEEK : It's all bewildering, challenging and changing.
From Traditional technology to Modern digital processes our rehabilitation processes are changing. You need to be up to speed with the technology to provide predictable, durable, aesthetic restorations.
