Implant Restorative Dentistry is really, kind
of a soup-to-nuts course on the restorative aspect of dealing with implants.
We don’t do a lot of surgical placement. We talk about surgical guides. We talk about
planning for an optimal implant position. But we don’t do any of the surgical stuff.
What we do do is a ton of restorative stuff. So, participants are going to be creating
customized emergence profiles multiple times. They’re going to build implant provisionals
a bunch of different ways. They’re going to be working on implants that are great positioned.
Super, like set up for ideal conditions. And, they’re going to be working on uh,
implants in conditions that we kind of created some challenges for them. So implants that
are out of position. Implants that are bad angles and all those kinds of things.
How do you adapt, how do you deal with those kinds of situations.
So in Implant Restorative Dentistry, the things that you learn in the workshop, we go through
about eighteen different exercises. So, their core principles in restorative sequencing
in order to have predictable final outcomes. So, it can hugely, positively impact your
restorative practice. Because if you learn, I’ll say this, subtle nuances in basic things
that can help develop the tissue and esthetic outcome.
Again, it’s, it’s transformational. Because otherwise than the laboratories are arbitrarily
doing in the lab without really guidance from the clinician. And the outcomes are less predictable.
So the key is developing predictable outcomes in a course, and knowing how to manage it
either directly with the restorative techniques that are taught, or working with someone within
the office or the laboratory, is the key elements. It’s developing predictable outcomes.
They leave the course feeling way more competent in their ability to deal with soft tissue
around implants. Way more competent in terms of their dealing and interactions with other
members of the interdisciplinary team. They know more what goes into case planning,
and as a result their case acceptance has got to go up.
