Description: More than 30 million Americans are missing teeth and could benefit from implants and yet only 10% of all US dentists are placing them. This rapidly evolving field can be intimidating to those who were not formally trained in placing implants. This practical course will show how recent developments in technology can remove the uncertainty and reduce the barriers to entry in implantology. It will demonstrate how dentists can place implants with greater accuracy, more predictability, and lower cost by embracing guided surgery.
