In addition, a thorough understanding of the biologic rationale for use of a single stage implant, will be demonstrated. Additional topics discussed will cover cemented vs. screw-retained restorations, ideal occlusal schemes and adjustment for implant dentistry, and single vs. splinted restorations. Drs. Higginbottom and Woody will take you through the process of restoring dental implants on typodonts and models for optimal esthetic success.
