Course Description

Implant-Restorative Connections
MasterPath Course 6

The implant has integrated, and your patient is anxiously awaiting the final prosthesis – what’s next?  What materials will you use which give you the desired esthetics and functional durability?  Should you use a stock abutment? A custom abutment? Screw retained? Cement Retained?  How much torque is required? What implant is that!? Where to get parts?  This three-day lecture and hands on course will include the latest scientific evidence with respect to improving clinical outcomes with your implant restorations.  Each participant will experience numerous hands-on techniques for impressioning, torqueing abutments, cementation and access hole restoration.  At the completion of this course, the restorative dentist will gained have significant knowledge and improved clinical skills in the challenging arena of implant restorations.
