Implants continue to be sought-after treatments by patients worldwide, because they can replace missing teeth functionally and cosmetically without aggressive treatment to the adjacent dentition. Using the right treatment planning guidelines and prosthetic recommendations, dentists and patients should experience lasting success with reduced complications and failures. This course covers principles and techniques that can help minimize the incidence of implant failure, including bone density, implant width, implant placement positioning, lab communication and follow-up appointments with the patient after restorations have been delivered and placed.
