NEVER DO IT or NEVER FEAR? For most restorative dentists connecting teeth and implants can be very confusing. What are the risks and benefits to connecting? When is it safe and when is it not indicated? This course teaches the mechanics of connection and the risks associated with it. There are times when connecting teeth and implants is necessary or even preferable to other options available for the success of the restorative dentistry. Those situations are discussed and illustrated by Dr. Frank Spear with case successes and failures shown to give a thorough understanding of what to do and what not to do.
