Develop Your Implant Team;Surgical and Restorative Considerations  to Maximize Treatment Outcomes
Dr. Brent Ludens and Dr. Kirk Fridrich

Implant dentistry still requires the use of multiple team members, and requires the team to work closely together to ensure a streamlined process that leads to predictable results.  Drs. Fridrich and Ludens will share their collaborative efforts over the last 30 years for their own successful team approach to implant dentistry.  Using their shared cases, they will discuss the planning, surgical, and restorative process for both straightforward and more challenging implant patients, so that each attendee can learn and understand the factors that lead to success or failure.  CBCT interpretation and analysis, treatment planning and surgical guide fabrication in the digital and non-digital realm, pre-prosthetic techniques to provide an acceptable implant site, along with precise implant placement and restoration all come together to create a long-lasting successful restoration for the implant patient.  Surgical and restorative steps that add to this success will be highlighted. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn to develop their personal and professional implant team

  • Surgeons and restorative dentists will learn how to collaborate together effectively in both the digital and non-digital phases of implant dentistry.

  • Skills necessary to be actively involved in the implant process will be discussed
