Dr Peter Hunt trained as a dentist at Guy’s Hospital (University of London) in Great Britain. After residencies in Maxillo-Facial Surgery he received an MSc In Advanced Restorative Dentistry at the Eastman in London. He then received an Annenberg Fellowship to study at the University of Pennsylvania, USA where he received Certificates in Periodontics and Periodontal Prosthesis.
Peter later became Clinical Professor of Periodontics at Penn and then Professor of Restorative Dentistry, Post-Graduate Director and Director of Periodontal Prosthesis and Implantology at Nova SouthEastern University in Florida. He has had a Private Practice in Philadelphia for more than thirty years.

Recent Case Studies
The maxillary lateral incisors were congenitally missing and were replaced 25 years ago by Adhesive Bridges. As gingival recession in the region developed and staining became apparent the patient requested something more aesthetic and natural. Implants are under consideration, but the alveolus is narrow and the roots of the adjacent teeth are close by. This video shows how a Surgically Guided approach is worked up using Implant Studio by 3 Shape.View Case Study
This case shows the planning and therapy for replacement of two adhesive bridges with dental implants. The lateral incisor spaces were very limited. Very careful Surgical Guide Planning was required. With a minimally invasive protocol, a very aesthetic and functional result was provided.View Case Study
A mandibular first molar had a root canal but no final restorative therapy. Now the tooth is hopeless and needs extraction. Removing the tooth is difficult because it breaks up. Once out it is desirable to place an implant immediately in what available bone remains and then to Socket Regenerate at the same time. This can save many months of therapy and additional surgical exposures.

A maxillary premolar fractured down the long axis. An immediate transition to an implant supported restoration is the mode of choice. In this video the placement of the final abutment in the implant and crowns on the abutment and adjacent teeth are shown.View Case Study
A failing bridge with a ridge underneath that has resorbed considerably providing a real challenge for providing an implant base solution. This video shows the problem and the approach taken which involves internal sinus lifts and extensive ridge augmentation.

A healed ridge in the region of a mandibular first molar, handled traditionally which means without a Surgical Guide. This means one has to take special precautions about channel location and depth. The whole process is shown to where a transgingival connection is in place. A later stage shows where a provisional abutment and a temporary crown are placed. A later video shows the final restorative process.View Case Study
This is the companion video to the program "Immediate replacement of a primary canine". It shows how the abutment and provisional crown were planned "virtually" before being exported for milling. This was planned out following the generation of the implant channel by drilling into the model using the Surgical Guide. This generated the implant analog in the position of the proposed implant. All this allowed the provisional restorative components to be ready for seating when the real implant was placed.View Case Study
