Implants by the Numbers
Credits: 3.00
In order to ensure excellent outcomes, the restorative dentist needs a thorough understanding of where the implant platform has to be to allow a functionally esthetic restoration to be fabricated. This starts by mocking up, either physically or digitally, the ideal final restoration. From the mock up important measurements can be made that will help the surgeon determine if additional procedures, such as hard and/or soft tissue grafting, will be needed to properly position the implant platform for adequate restoration.

A healthy periodontium is the foundation of a healthy mouth, and thus the foundation of all dentistry. A comprehensive examination is an essential first step in the performance of ideal dental care, but getting a patient to “say yes” to treatment involves more than just reporting one's findings.

In this course, Dr. Sonick will review the important patient communication techniques that have enabled him to build a successful practice where over 90% of his patients say yes to comprehensive dental treatment – and keep his practice fully booked 2-3 months in advance!
