Dental implants are a proven modality to replace single & multiple missing teeth, including full edentulous arches. Many abutment and restorative options from implant manufacturers to third-party suppliers exist. The number of options available can be confusing, even to experienced clinicians.
This presentation will review implant restorative options such as cement retained, screw retained, and the screwmentable concept. Discussion of impression and scanning techniques as well as laboratory procedures will be discussed. Current and historical literature will be cited to support restorative guidelines.
- Discuss implant abutment options including stock and custom options.
- Illustrate options when restoring implants with screw channels in less-than-ideal position.
- Impression & scanning options for single and multiple implants.
- Use of zirconia as abutments and/or crowns when restoring dental implants.
- Review tips for successful delivery of cement retained, screw retained and screwmentable options.
- Explain the proper use of torque wrenches to deliver the appropriate clamping forces to the seating screw.
