Course Synopsis

Presenter: Paresh B. Patel, DDS

This hands-on course will provide a complete, step-by-step protocol for the surgical placement and restoration of single-unit implants. Day one will address requirements specific to the posterior region, while day two will focus on the “esthetic zone” and thoroughly review aspects critical to the anterior. Participants will gain practical knowledge with hands-on, model-based exercises in anterior and posterior sites using digitally guided as well as freehand techniques. Functional and esthetic considerations will be addressed, including extraction techniques, ridge preservation, tissue management, impression taking and screw- vs. cement-retained restorations.
