Patient-specific implant restorations-increasing esthetic success and digital workflow efficiency

Dr. Alan Scott Douglas DDS

The webinar will be focusing on the benefits of patient-specific abutments with a specific emphasis on cases involving cement-retained and screw-retained single and partially edentulous.

Innovation and technology are moving at a rapid pace with many developments impacting the role of implant therapy within the dental practice. Today, the success of implant treatment is defined by both function and esthetics. More options are available today to help make the optimal results better and easier, however selecting the correct option for a patient can be overwhelming. This lecture will discuss the unique advancements in cement-retained and screw-retained restorations that provide enhanced efficiency to your existing workflow as well as material selection guidelines for implant crowns and abutments.
