$13.00 – $25.00
Friday 3rd May, 4:50 PM – 5:35 PM, HALL D
What is better, a single unit implant supported restoration, or a three-unit tooth borne bridge? As dental clinicians, intuitively we favor the implant. However, what do we base this bias on? The objective of this presentation is to discuss the various aspects of tooth borne splinted restorations, implant survival rates, and restorative management of patient dental tooth replacement needs in order to shine some objective light on this important question.
• Understand documented tooth borne and implant supported restoration survival rates.
• Discuss abutment teeth criteria that impact overall bridge prognoses.
• Develop improved communication skills with patients regarding the benefits of implant dentistry
