Immediate Molar Implants
Time: 6:00pm-7:00pm CST
Number of Credits:
1 CE Credit Hour
Conventional extractions, bone grafting and delayed implant placement and restoration can result in decreased patient satisfaction and case acceptance, increased risk of clinical complications and ultimately sub-optimal functional and esthetic results. This webinar will discuss how immediate molar implant placement is an alternative to such conventional procedures. Modern site-specific dental implant designs and more conservative surgical and restorative techniques have increased predictability of immediate treatment, which in turn increases patient satisfaction by optimizing esthetics, reducing treatment time and potential complications.
