Event Details

Dental implants have been a routine part of dentistry for over 30 years and following their commercial application there was a sense of hubris that many restorative challenges had been solved. However, despite the use of digital and CAD/CAM technology to help drive down the cost of placing and restoring dental implants and teeth, these methods of treatment are still out of reach for many patients. We need to consider the implications that treatment decisions made today will have on the long-term maintenance burden of our patients in the long-term. Andrew will share an accumulation of clinical and research based knowledge to help with your patient’s treatment journey when considering dental implants and oral rehabilitation.
